@foldamort Also, something called a "Wesley Johnson" was wide open, but I'm going to have to assume that's a fan who wandered out of his courtside seat, because I've never heard of an NBA caliber player by that name.

@foldamort Jeremy Lin was wide open!



...But I'll still take my odds on old Kobe jacking up a fall away 3 with a man draped all over him. The Lakers are gonna SUUUUUCK this year.

@Disgruntled Goat @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Purple Drank @JoeMaddonSuperstar Dave Stewart hasn't done anything to change the reputation yet. Plus, it was a super funny joke even if no longer accurate.

@Diane. fap Jesus, super ninja, hero, best friend What if it was still 29 American teams and 1 Canadian, but they played each game of the series that decides the championship on a different continent. Would that be a World Series?

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Purple Drank @the great dick tater You sure about that? Cano's career OPS+ is 127. Hanley's is 132. Cano is a year older. His only advantage is on defense.

@- Casey - Rain has me torn. California needs it. My yard needs it. BUT I had a great idea for giving out Halloween candy to neighborhood kids, but it involves me sitting in the new wooden rocking chair I just purchased for my nursery, and I don't want to sit in the rain and ruin my new chair.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Purple Drank @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater Then you'd be punting that 5th year, which is a decision I don't agree with.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Purple Drank @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater To a team with the Dodgers' financial might, opportunity cost is more important than financial cost. $2.5 million per year (the difference in AAV between 4/100 and 5/110) is a tiny tiny percentage of their payroll budget.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Purple Drank @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater The monetary cost is small. The opportunity cost is HUGE.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater Because the extra year is a BAD thing. That's the whole point here. You're not getting an extra year of age 29 Hanley, who hit .345/.402/.638 while playing decent SS. You're getting age 35 Hanley, who will be a HUGE defensive liability and likely to not be anywhere near as good a hitter.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater No we can't assume that because we've seen over and over and over again that teams won't do it - smart FO or not.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater Also, the money can be spread over 5 years (or 6 years or 10 years or 20 years) while still being a 4 year contract. Ask Bobby Bonilla or Andruw Jones or Manny Ramirez.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @the great dick tater Except for the opportunity cost of Hanley taking up a starting spot over a much better player. What you're saying is true in theory, but not in practice, because the team won't recognize a sunk cost and DFA him.

23 hours, 50 minutes ago on Offseason Dates To Remember

Reply

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @the great dick tater @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) That extra year of team control is FAR more likely to be a drain on the team than a bonus to the team.

@2B15Lopes It does seem to me that Giants fans have a severe inferiority complex to the Dodgers... which really doesn't make sense given the last 5 years.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello Only chance I see of that is if Hanley agrees to something like $110/4 years (which he won't)

@the great dick tater @ABSmileBunch @Weston T I'm not sure that it's "our guys" bias in the case of Kershaw. He's the best pitcher in baseball and he's also widely regarded as a wonderful human being. He's the kind of guy it's fun to cheer for. That's as opposed to, say, AJ, who is a wonderful human being and (this season at least) kind of bad at baseball. That's not a very fun guy to cheer for, because he's not succeeding and then you just end up feeling sad. Or Jeff Kent, who was very good at baseball, but also a complete dick. He wasn't fun to cheer for because even though he did well, you just kinda felt dirty afterwards.

Solace: Mike says "The Dodgers have won as many titles since 1965 as the Giants have since 2010." That's true. It's also true that the Dodgers have won as many titles since 1965 as the Giants have since 1955.

@TheConman @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @JoeMaddonSuperstar I mean, even if he's backpedaling but facing the base, he's not gonna be able to get much on the throw from "deep left-center," and we know he's got an average arm. As long as he can't catch while coming forward into the throw.
