    I'm in same boat. I would like to have Realmuto, but also have hopes that Barnes is going to be closer to the guy that he was in 2017 rather than who we saw in 2018. The Red Sox and Astros have shown that you don't need a superstar catcher to win. Would I like to see Realmuto in Dodger Blue? Hell yes, but if it is going to cost Verdugo and Ruiz.... ehhhhhh

    Marlins using the Dodgers as leverage. Time to leak like a mofo so the Marlins don’t receive as much as they want

    @ColoradoKidWitGame ... you are my preferred source for MLB news. I'd rather read you than wade through the sewer of sports reporting out there to find the non-toxic sewage (didn't come across as a compliment, but I swear I meant it to be one) :(o_O;)

    Did anybody catch today's episode of MLB Now? Former Angels GM Tony Reagans was on. Dude sounded like he knew nothing about baseball. No insight whatsoever.

    I think that just confirms what we already knew.

    FWIW - I left this page up on my browser at school, forgot that I did, and your avatar was viewed by my students for a few minutes before I realized it. So now, I'm the teacher that let a pussycat flip off my juniors. . .

    There are a couple more in the MiLB section of the site, but I thought these were some interesting quotes to keep an eye on. Those are some high remarks on the Dodgers catching prospects from FanGraphs and Keith Law. The one thing to keep an eye on is what Keith Law said in regards to Realmuto and Ruiz. He has a connection into the FO or the MiLB scouting department of the Dodgers as he is usually high on guys before they blow up on the scene the following year. *He legit put me on blast once for simply asking if meant something else in a players repertoire. ... he's kind of a dick* I think this probably means that we were offering a band of lesser prospects for Realmuto which is why things never seemed to reach the goal line. Wonder if the Dodgers are really just trying to help the Marlins out....

    Puig shouldn’t have been traded just my opinion that was a bullshit move

    I hope he kills it and breaks it open for him. That dude wore his emotions and played balls out

    Hope he turns into a HOF career.

    I think I am the only one here with a subscription to the Athletic so you may not have been able to read the Rosenthal article going around today. He basically explains what Kasten meant last week and the overall take away was that the Dodgers are done for the offseason. They like Pollock more due to affordability, being right handed and they hate both Harper's defense and how he has been rather up and down over the last couple of years. He speculates that they are more focused on players that have been consistent performers over the years like Nolan Arenado and Mike Trout. The Dodgers are still kicking around on Realmuto, but signs are that the Marlins have better offers from other clubs. The Indians on the other hand are seemingly focused FA acquisitions and are no longer seriously engaging the Dodgers(or anyone else for that matter) in talks for Corey Kluber. He also said the Dodgers never seriously entertained offers for Joc Pederson. They feel he is continuing to take steps forward and is a valuable piece in the OF. One thing I would not be shocked if this was related to the team wanting to first see how Muncy responds before depleting any more of the core. If Muncy dips to some projection levels, the Dodgers are going to be kicking themselves for the moves they've made this offseason. The same could be said if he comes back walloping the ball AND manning a much improved 2B. We will see, but Rosenthal thinks the team will do the same thing it has done each of the last few years. See how the start of the season is going and reassess as the deadline nears.
