@TheConman The Braves payroll is 113 million this year. By chipper math that's about 20 billion

@tsneddy @saw that no-no @PagansOedipalComplex @DBrim Of course he would want to be doing better. That's not exactly going out on a limb. The question is what reasonable expectations are. Hanley has proven over time what he is - an regularly injured poor defender with a great bat. He can be counted on to play in 80-100 games. 


Last year, he outdid himself offensively, and it was incredible to watch. But nobody was reasonably expecting him to match that production going forward.


In Miami he was in his mid 20s.

@tsneddy @saw that no-no @PagansOedipalComplex @DBrim because he isn't duplicating last years season, which was literally the greatest offensive season for a shortstop in dodger history? Wow.

@tsneddy @PagansOedipalComplex @saw that no-no @DBrim no argument there. But that goes back to expectations. We all knew that Hanley is a terrible defender with a great bat. That is what he will ultimately be paid to be. This year has done nothing to change that perception.

@NotBatman I'm sure Kershaw isn't going around desperately offering to teach people his pitches because he wants friends, if that's what you're asking.

@Mike Petriello Hamels is a top-10 pitcher (if not higher) locked in until 2018, at a bargain. I don't think that would be a horrible trade. I would want Ruiz as well, though.

@tsneddy @Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) Kevin sugarcoats things quite a bit. I think people who know players personally and rely on access have a tendency to downplay their faults.

@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @tsneddy The Barves' announcers last night were talking about how he's still a great pitcher because his ERA is so low.

Hey, somebody who knows about pitching, what are the major differences between the sinker and the slider?

@Zoltan_(Birdman) Crawford has a shitty contract which makes him untradeable. He does provide value when he can stay on the field. Nice player. SVS is young, and could be a starter on a bad team. FOr the Dodgers, he's a versatile bench piece. Some power, not a defensive liability.

@Zoltan_(Birdman) When healthy a top 5 player in baseball. He hasn't been healthy in about 2 years, and his stock has fallen dramatically. The dodgers have explored trading him, but he is still a great player.
