@Mike Petriello @ngross32 Yeah, but that's the worst excuse ever.  You can cancel on those casinos last minute and the flights are like $100.  If I were Kemp, I'd want to get this ordeal over with and look ahead, but his response was - nah, I'm going to Vegas.

At what point are we handing off too much cash?  If we send them another $20M, it's basically like SD's paying market rate for two years and then we're paying off the bad years ourselves.  Why not just DFA him in two years if his hips explode?  God, this sucks.

Isn't that the point of the trade?! If Kemp were healthy, we probably wouldn't be moving him. And that's also why we're accepting two injury risks in return, no?

@ABSmileBunch We've got several switch hitters and lots of LH bats that may have days off against LHP and be available to PH later in the game.  Might be an issue where we face a RHP and stack the lineup with LH bats, then we face a LH reliever and bring in RH bats, and then later face a RH reliever without any LH bench bat options (because they were already replaced by PH).  But that can be managed around.

@Raul Franklin I think if we're paying full freight, someone might flip us a flier prospect.  League at $4M might draw some interest.

What great timing on this article.  At least our fretting is topical.  I feel like there's usually crazy arguments about the 24th/25th spot on the roster or ridiculous trade proposals lined up with a post about how awesome Brandon McCarthy's twitter feed is ...

@DodgerBytes @ngross32 There were reports earlier that SD was looking for TWO big bats, so the Myers move wasn't surprising.  The timing was downright scary.

So the Wil Myers trade idea came up like a week or two ago and maybe it has legs based upon this new report that San Diego's after him.  Do we simply not hear more about Wil Myers potentially being traded because he plays for TBR?  The Matt Kemp watch was 24-7 with weeks of constant, useless updates.  I would think Wil Myers as an acquisition target would draw eyeballs and generate similar useless content, but apparently not as much as the Dodgers possibly shipping out Kemp.  Meh?

@finleysgrandslam I'd like to see a longer post on this.  Overall roster re-construction statistics.  It feels like we improved massively at defense, will have a better bullpen and rotation.  Our offense will suffer, but the additions should more than compensate for the subtraction.
