    Joc and Kike.
    Ball and Caruso.

    LA doesn't understand the value that supporting players with the clutch gene have. And that they are more valuable than shooting stars in need of support.
    Guys like Taylor help get guys like Seager not break down into a puddle of oat milk.
    And to get them to the finish line as they burn themselves out.

    Everyone except Souza (5 M ) signs with another team.
    Trevor Bauer returns as first trans gender player in BB history. Gets immediately elevated to Jackie status.

    Not good with numbers, so I'll take a stab at the destinations.

    Taylor--Dodgers.....can't lose another versatile piece.

    Scherzer--fucking Giants

    Kershaw and Kenley--Dodgers

    Seager--highest bidder (Boras client)

    Knebel and Nelson--Giants

    Tio--Cards (where else?)

    Duffy, Souza and Hamels--go take up space on someone else's payroll

    Not a fan of how he operates on social media.

    Constantly picking fights with teenagers, used Bauer's rape allegations to promote his book in a celebratory way which was weird to me, and had to apologize and delete a post belittling a homeless person.

    But who am I to judge...

    Have a feeling Scherzer heads elsewhere.

    Taylor/Kershaw seem like safe bets to return. I think they resign Kenley too.

    Corey is most likely getting a fat check from the Yankees.
