    Rosenthal said to not expect the deals to get announced until the Dodgers resolve the 2 extra roster spots. Tyler White definitely does make some sense to be DFA'd since he is way down on the depth chart and I believe he is out of options. If the club passes on that, guessing they have seen something they really like behind the scenes as the club has been working with him most of the offseason. There are some players on the edge of the 40 man that could make some sense, but at the same time the club will need 40 man spots later in the season and making it too full with MLB caliber players will cause issues down the road.

    Rosenthal reporting this morning that, in regards to the Joc-Stripling trade, "Moreno grew impatient, and pulled the deal". He added that the Dodgers saw it unnecessary after the other 2 trades changed (which doesn't make sense as to how the other deals changed it, but I'll role with it), and there's an outside chance it gets revisited.

    Nice work, Moreno.

    Angels fans should be livid with Moreno.

    That was such a good deal for them and they lose out on it due to Moreno acting like a little kid.

    The outrage if any won’t be Boston fans or even baseball fans. But opinion writers and sexual assault advocacy group. Just like they cane out of the woodwork when Kobi passed

    I say good for them. A good trade should leave all sides happy.

    Having a guy who could break camp in our bullpen, along with possibly keeping Joc and Strip, makes this a better deal in the eyes of most Dodgers fans.

    LOL, according to a report from one of the Angels beat reporters, the industry wide opinion felt that it was a major steal at all levels by the Angels. There is no reason to get pissed at the Dodgers when the Sox were the ones pulling the bullshit. Moreno is such a fucking idiot.

    Sometimes the best trades are the trades that never happen

    I still saw plenty of people talking about it. He’s a terrible person because his roommate or whatever raped someone. Not him, but a roommate that I believe the dodgers released from the organization

    I'm not sure why the Dodgers were trading Stripling in the first place, since it didn't clear that much payroll. Maybe just to clear a 40-man roster spot for a guy without a defined role? But Strip is exactly the kind of guy the Angels should target. If they can put together a halfway competent rotation, with their offense they could compete in that division. Sucks for the Angels.

    I was just reminded about the new rule forcing relievers to face a minimum of three batters. Could help Joc get a few less loogy ABs

    I'm sure if the Angels really want Joc he can be had. I'm sure Adel is off limits but Brandon Marsh is ranked 79th in MLBs top 100. I could see a frame work of Joc and Stripling going and Marsh and one of their pitchers minor league pitchers Soriano or Hernandez. Would love Sandoval but that might be reaching.

    Mary Jo to Teddy in 1969: Ted, I think I'm pregnant!

    Really hope they keep Joc. I can see why you can’t really have Joc, Pollock, Taylor, Enrique and Lux for essentially only 2 positions but, Joc is so damn good against righties. Platoon player is fair and all but, being a super good hitter ~70% of the time is extremely valuable. A guy who only crushes lefties (Pollock) isn’t that exciting but being very good for the majority of at bats? Don’t see it as that big a negative

    Not sure how we could get any of their top prospects after the last rumored deal was so fucking mediocre.
