    thats some sf dreaming right there
    pretty sure he has no desire to go to a team losing Posey and working w a team that all seemingly had career years (roids)
    not to mention all the guys who were good for them are free agents

    guessing the same guys that saw something still see it
    8 mil isn't peanuts and he's the 50th rated FA
    still not seeing anything in his career that looks promising but that's why i don't make the big bucks

    I looked into it and I am lost. The only thing I can think of is that they see something in his pitch mix, perhaps one or two pitches he throws better than some other bad pitches and they just change the way he pitches. He has an appealing strikeout rate but gets hit hard when he allows them to hit it.

    agree with both of you
    must be something they saw/see that they think they can fix
    otherwise kind of costly replacement for alexander

    Apparently a bunch of teams were in on Heaney, although I’m not entirely sure why.

    Dodger front office personnel are master dumpster divers. Definitely give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to under the radar signings.

    Ferguson should be back, too. He gives us another LH for the steel trap brain of Dave Roberts to utilize to try and manage the team as well as his idol/victorious superior conterpart, Snitker.
    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em...

    no real surprise

    Jon Heyman@JonHeyman
    Chris Taylor is expected to reject the Dodgers $18.4M qualifying offer. Versatility and recent performance almost guarantees a great market.

    As the projected " who goes where" frenzy grows in intensity, so far, none ( that I can yet ascertain), is good. The Dodger luck and skill may be drawing to a close...or not. Maybe they will pull a rabbit / rabbits out of the magic hat, as they have been known certainly to do.
    But no matter who we do keep, or sign, or get a sweetheart deal with, it will be an addition to a club that is managed by Dave Roberts.
    And therein boyos, lies the rub...

    I just wish Ferguson would stay healthy. Otherwise I think the kid is great.

    the few who get it
    are there to give it
    to the many who dont get it
    so that they get it
    and learn to give it
    before they forget it

    • Chris Taylor will reject the Dodgers’ one-year, $18.4MM qualifying offer and test the open market, reports Jon Heyman of the MLB Network (Twitter link). The Meister Sports Management client will presumably set out in search of a multi-year pact, be it with the Dodgers or another club. That’s not at all surprising, since Taylor should be in plenty of demand. Even with draft pick compensation attached, MLBTR placed the 31-year-old sixteenth on this offseason’s list of top free agents, projecting him to land a four-year deal worth $64MM.
