Also: hella talent; Kendrick's floor is ridiculously higher than Dee's. Also, JRoll, despite his age, has been in the lineup way more often than Hanley in recent seasons.

This also ignores the fact that three of our INFers are free agents after this year. I mean, sure, if JRoll and Uribe were still under contract for another year or two after this season, it'd be a huge concern. They're not though, and combining that factor with our depth (Kike, Barnes, Turner) as well as having Seager progressing, I'm not all that concerned.

He hasn't shown basically ANY signs of aging. At least, not yet anyway. He's averaged 155 games over the past three seasons, too. Don't think I'd go past a fat one year deal, though. 

3 weeks, 5 days ago on 2014 Dodgers In Review: SP Roberto Fausto Carmona Hernandez

Reply

@DKD That's true in some cases, yeah. There's also instances where, late in a game, a number eight hitter might be pitched around and the pitcher's spot is then pinch-hit for, which creates a much higher scoring opportunity.

LOL yeah we should totally get rid of Kersh, Yasiel, and Gonzo based on a four game sample size!!!

Anyway, if we extend Howie then I'll really like the trade. If not, then we QO him and collect a draft pick, which I still think is justifiable.

I could be wrong, but I don't believe he's considered to be a top 20 anymore?

@PagansOedipalComplex @Moderately Excited Towel Eric's article at TBLA says no, that he will not go on the 40 man. 

"Zarraga was drafted by the Brewers in the 44th round in the 2007 draft. He is not on the 40-man roster, but will add to the catching depth in the organization, which is razor thin."

@MajorPuigBaseball @NoHitWin2008 @Lobo Agreed. If the Padres intentionally leaked info in order to extort more money, then FUCK THEM.

@DBrim Yeah, it'd be nice if those guidelines were followed to the tee every single time, I agree. I'd feel better about it if the Padres source simply said that there were concerns about Kemp passing the physical, as opposed to being specific about what frightened them. 

Better yet, don't say a damn thing until you determine one way or the other if he's passed.

@moneynow27 REALLY excited to learn more about Hatcher. He flew under the radar big-time in that trade, and he'll likely end up being the biggest piece we get from the Marlins in terms of 2015.

@tsneddy (change is weird) @NoHitWin2008 @PagansOedipalComplex There's a pretty decent chance that Grandal provides similar value to the Dodgers in 2015 as Kemp would. 

Not saying that Yasmani is gonna be a better hitter, but overall value could be closer that people think.

@PagansOedipalComplex @tsneddy (change is weird) The blowback would be pretty immense if the Padres were perceived to be extorting Farhandrew. I'd bet good money that POC was right, and that they were just doing their homework extensively.

Why are some people freaking out? The physical just took place yesterday, and we'd been told all along that they wanted to make the trade official by Thursday. It's currently Wednesday night, right?

I'd be really surprised if League got DFA'd. There's some value in what he does, provided that he isn't constantly put into high leverage situations.

Wonder if Farhandrew are looking into Varvaro, who was just DFA'd by the Braves.

@DKD I'd be shocked if they dealt Seager for Hamels. Urias, I wouldn't be AS schocked, but I'd still be surprised. And Joc fills a need on the '15 ML roster, so that doesn't seem all that likely either.

@InsideThePark I'm assuming that they'll do something with Ethier and Guerrero, and perhaps even Arruebarrena.

@Mike Petriello @NoHitWin2008 I'm inclined to feel the same way, simply because I trust the new FO to not need to scramble for a R. Hernandez type should he get injured. 

Basically, there will be a plan in place.

The Anderson move seems totally defensible. Super high risk, but super high reward. I guess it really just depends on who our number 6/7 starters would be in the event of injury.

@666foldamort Oddly enough, losing Greinke would hurt me a lot more than losing Kemp did. I would be bummed, but if we found a way to turn Greinke into Hamels then I wouldn't totally hate it.

We play the Kings on Sunday, and they just fired Malone. That one might be a W, but if not then we could easily go on a nice little streak over the next nine or ten.
