@ak825 @Chest_Rockwell @Disgruntled Goat That's got to be one of the biggest salary dumps ever.

In addition to tomorrow night's game, the Dodgers will also be shown live on MLB Network three times this coming week: Monday, Tuesday, and Saturday.

@ak825 @nsxtasy Yes, but if we want to keep him around, we can, through 2020.

When I hear about Guerrero, I keep thinking that he has a four-year contract so we only keep him through 2017.  But then I remember he can go through arbitration after that, so he's actually under team control through 2020.

@ak825 Actually, I feel almost the reverse.  I'm a little surprised how far out of the way DM went to talk about how they need to get Turner into the lineup more based on his performance.

Like Mike says, it's a good problem to have, to have more good bats than you can get into the lineup regularly.

So when a player (e.g. Santos) has a contract clause that says they have to be on the 25-man roster by May 1, does it usually specify how long they have to stay up?  I mean, can they just bring him up for a few days, then send him back down, without losing him?

@ak825 I like SVS a lot.  But him not starting is nothing new.  He didn't start all that much all last year.

I'm starting to feel like some of these roster moves are silly.  I mean, bringing up someone for one or two games, but someone who is probably not going to play anyway unless the game goes 13+ innings... seems like a lot of trouble and disruption for very little actual benefit.

@Disgruntled Goat @nsxtasy I think they can get by with 7 bullpen arms.  After all, that's what they normally do all season long, no?

Keep in mind, if they send Bolsinger down, he must stay down for ten days, so he would miss two starts.

So, do the Dodgers leave Bolsinger on the 25-man so he can start again in five days?

The big challenge for broadcasts using Statcast is not only displaying numbers, but deciding which ones are meaningful and putting them into some kind of perspective.Initially no one is going to know what is a good number or a bad number, or what numbers really matter.

@Bull Doggy Dogg @nsxtasy Yes, but it's still better to be in first, than to be lower in the standings.  And it's still worth noting and enjoying, even though obviously the race is early and it's SSS.

@ABSmileBunch BP has it about the same, and a 93 percent chance of making the playoffs.  The number I am most concerned about is it says an 18 percent chance of winning the WS, which is actually pretty darn good, the best in baseball by far.  http://www.baseballprospectus.com/odds

Funny, before this topic appeared, I just pointed this out in a comment in the previous topic!  (Without all the numbers, just noting that the xFIP is the best in MLB by far, especially for the relievers, although the starters also have the best xFIP.)

Dodger pitchers have the best xFIP in MLB and it's not even close (2.36 vs 2.93 for the next-best Mets).  The rotation is best in MLB (2.52 vs 2.60 for Cleveland) and the bullpen is the best in MLB by far (2.08 vs 2.61 for, believe it or not, the Rockies).

SSS of course, but so far the bullpen is holding up without Kenley just fine.

>> Brandon Beachy‘s health brings better news. Beachy has been throwing bullpen sessions for a few weeks, and could be relatively close to a rehab assignment. Hopefully the Dodgers take their time with him. The temptation to bring Beachy back quickly with the shallow rotation has to be there, but he’d give a better return on the Dodgers’ investment if they are careful.

Since Beachy is on the 60-day DL, doesn't that mean he can't come back before the end of May?

>> Also, this is another example of #sss, which is impossible to avoid in April. But the early returns are encouraging on many levels.

One truth about small sample size: Data may be less important when the sample size is small, but still, it's better when that data shows good performance than bad performance.
