    According to Jon Heyman, the Dodgers were near the type of package SD ended up dealing to the Nats for Juan Soto. They were also given a chance to exceed it by adding major league ready players to their offer, i.e., Tony Gonsolin, which the Dodgers were reluctant to do.

    Close to it was.. what exactly? Considering the Padres also got Josh Bell, who was probably worth two of those guys by himself. Say Bell was worth Voit and like Susana/Wood, that means Soto was worth Gore, Abrams, Hassell, and Susana/Wood? What is the Dodgers equivalent to that? I'd say Pepiot is about equal to Gore. Hassell is probably above Vargas, but not as valuable as Cartaya, and there is no real comp to someone like Abrams who had solid minors #'s but struggled in the big leagues so far, and I don't know enough about the rest of the Padres package to say much else. I personally still think the Nats got absolutely fleeced and should have demanded Cronenworth in any deal.

    I dont think its that way at all. I think MGT was in on all those guys you mentioned but were only willing to give up so much. Lets all remember Dodgers are at the top of the NL. You dont think rival GM put pressure on the Nats to not help the Dodgers get EVEN better??!! Which i bet added to the Dodger price vs everyone elses price. Also I would not be shocked to learn that the Nats didnt want to trade with the Dodgers after the trade last year. Keibert and Grey are not exactly lighting anything up. In the end Betts/Freeman/Turner >Machado/Tatis/Soto. Im ok watching our DL guys return and seeing how this plays out. Then in December use the top prospects to get Ohtani.

    Guess I didn't explain what I meant that well...I was referring to the present attitude being laid out there that the Dodgers didn't even care or really try to get these monsters at all. We were just about completely satisfied with what we have...
    Then you hear and read they took serious runs at everyone. I think it's either one way or the other. Not both.
    Don't cover up losing out big time by pretending we weren't even involved when we certainly were...big time.
    Also, I think we have a miniscule to infinitesimal chance of landing Ohtani.
    But...I hope you're absolutely right.
    Man, that would be something.
    Really would be something.

    i know i'm alone when i say i don't want Ohtani
    i absolutely respect the talent and how once in a generation his talent is
    its like having jewelry w a beautiful diamond but its so big its uncomfortable
    everyone wants to see it but the person wearing it feels like a freak
    as good as he is its kind of like a circus act
    i'd rather have Trea and another reasonable star for what Shohei is going to cost
    long term contract and injuries sure seem to be a part of the equation idk

    not alone at all
    same reason i didn’t want soto
    the cost of prospects/players is way too high
    would rather go after a free agent or two and of course re-sign trea
    imo a lot more sensible to throw money at a free agent than it is to trade multiple proven and/or prospective commodities for just one guy

    Every now and then I think about the Yordan Alvarez for Josh Fields trade
    Imagine 25 yo Yordan Alvarez on this team hitting #3 or 4
    Fuck Josh Fields

    Updates on Bazooka and Treinen.......

    Aug. 6: RHPs Blake Treinen, Brusdar Graterol throw sim games
    Treinen threw an inning on Aug. 6 at Dodger Stadium, his second simulated game over the last week as he works his way back from right shoulder inflammation. Treinen’s injury has been a mysterious one, but he appears to be making significant progress. He is still hesitant to provide any update on when he’ll be back with the Dodgers. Manager Dave Roberts did say, however, that Treinen is getting closer to going on a rehab assignment.

    Graterol threw an inning during a simulated game. He will throw another simulated game within a few days and continues to recover well.
