Second comment.....My expectations for Friedman during his first offseason were low, now I think he will make some radical changes to the roster, and eat some contracts in the process.  This trade would actually benefit both teams, but I think the Marlins will want a few lower level prospects in the package.

RIP Taveras...horrible...I didn't know this happened until about 15 minutes ago.  The kid had huge potential to be a star in MLB.

Short term, LAKE is an ebola play, they make the Hazmat protection suits.  There was a possible confirmed case of ebola in NY today, so the stock spiked.  It may continue up for a few days, but it's a short term trade only....You can make some good money if the demand for the suits increases, as it may do.

Thanks!  Roche just decided to leverage their cancer portfolio.  The ebola vaccine they have is actually minutia compared to their cancer drugs in the pipeline.....I wouldn't sell, they could get acquired.

I'm asking the board to please refrain from bringing up hitler, in any context, now, and in the future.  I don't think it's appropriate, and certainly not as a comparison to baseball or players.  I certainly hope everyone can respect my thoughts here....Thank you.

The market recovered over 200 points so far today....An ebola vaccine and a change in overall sentiment will fix things, at least in the near term.   I hope your guy did you well.

You're correct, it may make the whole run scoring thing more difficult for opposing teams.

Mike, if you're here, you're correct.  I like this morning's blog post.  As I said yesterday, it makes sense to be realistic about our expectations for Friedman's 1st season, and to embrace the paradigm shift.  This will allow Friedman and others to continue building the farm system, and provide the blend of young players and veterans that will make this team a consistent contender for many years to come.

I think the Dodgers Digest team did a great job summarizing what Andrew Friedman may mean to this franchise.  Rather than have unrealistic expectations for specific results during his first season, we should all just accept the paradigm shift, which will allow senior management to consistently build a winning team for many years to come.

McCourt gave Ned a multi-year deal right after he announced his highly publicized divorce.  Mark Walter didn't want to make a move right away, they wanted to see how he performs with unlimited funds first.

Steelmohawk......so you don't have to scroll back down.....You're correct about GSK.....but I can see a player like GSK acquiring NLNK and their cancer pipeline as well, esp. if NewLink has the first mover advantage....Time will tell, meanwhile, the CDC's approach is pathetic at this point.   Thanks for the response.

Didn't miss my window potato, I've been in since $20.....Keep in mind, if this vaccine trial is a success, big pharma will scoop them up for a huge premium.   The window has not been missed, I would add on a dip.

For anyone who cares, and more importantly, anyone who has any extra cash lying around....Consider buying NewLink Genetics asap.  NewLink has a potential ebola vaccine in trials right now, and this may become THE vaccine for this dreaded virus....Stock symbol is NLNK....... JUST saying......Hello everyone otherwise, we now have a great VP of Operations......Great post Chad.

Showing someone the door is the same thing as having them become a special advisor.....Maybe Ned will advise Andrew Friedman to sign Neshek to a 5 year contract.

Ned will help with the transition.  He'll be offered another job in the organization, maybe an advanced scout, or clubhouse maintenance.

There's not much out there in the way of crash protection. Personally I just think it's the start of a 10% correction, unless the ISIS thing escalates, or Ebola becomes a pandemic, or a similar black swan flies in.
