@JackedNate @Mike Petriello @BlueMarvin that's silly. "Less to ownership" also means "less to be reinvested into the franchise".

@Purple Drank Drank, batting average is a bad way to predict GG nominations.
@Purple Drank @Vin_Skully would have lol'd if you called them "gnats" instead. Their feelings wouldve been so hurt.
@Vin_Skully and corner outfielders, don't forget
2 days, 12 hours ago on What If The Dodgers Sold High On Dee Gordon?
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex @cvrinc this is unfair, btu the fact the dbacks wanted him makes me like him less.
@Purple Drank Drank, Gold Glove nominations aren't really a good way to measure defensive ability.
@TheConman @mawp yeah that caught my eye. That's def going to happen
2 days, 14 hours ago on What If The Dodgers Sold High On Dee Gordon?
this stuff is incredible
@BIah 44 million almost sounds reasonable now. weird
@Mike Petriello @mawp @EephusBlue @BIah that's what I mean. He didn't fail, but he hasn't really had the opportunity to prove himself.
@Lobo @mawp @EephusBlue @BIah not bad enough, just unknown enough. It's a long shot, but it's not like he's for sure untradeable.
@EephusBlue @BIah if guerrero continues to fail to prove himself, wouldn't he be better off keeping his contract?
@BIah too early to say that.
@Purple Drank I get it. drugs.
@cvrinc @mawp wwhile dustin is just laughing in the background
3 days, 9 hours ago on Josh Byrnes to Dodgers rumors heat up, but what will his role be?
@cvrinc @mawp only a few minutes in, but Jared sounds like he hates everything
good god. this podcast is the worst. i love it
gugg probably got this idea from me:
3 days, 13 hours ago on Josh Byrnes to Dodgers rumors heat up, but what will his role be?
@Matt Kemp's #3 Fan @mawp @YadierMolinasOedipalComplex @Lobo @Literally PFP oh the free agent clause. right
1 week ago on Introducing Josh Byrnes, leading candidate to be Dodgers’ GM
@Matt Kemp's #3 Fan @mawp @YadierMolinasOedipalComplex @Lobo @Literally PFP really? why?
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex @Lobo @Literally PFP *not necessarily in LA, either
@DodgerDodger @mawp in the right circumstances, of course what you're saying makes sense. But every year around the trade deadline, especially with 2 wildcards, there's always going to be the chance of contending. If every year you traded away your best prospect for the best available pitchers, you'd quickly start to look like the Phillies
1 week, 2 days ago on Plenty of Dodgers’ prospects on BA’s postseason Top 20 lists
@DodgerDodger @mawp i totally agree. I feel like you overstated your case when you said you'd trade seager in a heartbeat for 1 year of an ace. I don't think that would be considered best GM practices
@DodgerDodger @mawp doubt the angels would be interested 1 to 1 though
@DodgerDodger @mawp that's a little better. What about Garrett Richards? Not quite 'ace' caliber, but on an upward trajectory. Age 26, maybe 4th year. Corey Seager for him?
@Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @mawp @DodgerDodger ha. really?
@DodgerDodger @mawp Why does it have to be a full year?
@DodgerDodger you would have traded him straight up for lester at the deadline? Or would it have to be a full year?
@P_F_P @mawp @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda I don't know enough about the piazza details, but I would suspect that 71-91 had more to do with DePodesta getting fired than anything that fool has to say.
@P_F_P @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda plaschke wishes he had that kind of impact.
@P_F_P @mawp @TheConman i don't think you're wrong, i just think it's an odd thing to feel so strongly about. It's like some people are claiming Ned was 60% bad, but you're insisting he was only 40% bad. Who cares?
@Guitar @mawp my name isn't billy, joe, bob, or jesus.
@P_F_P @TheConman you feel strongly that Ned wasn't good, but he wasn't as bad as some people say either?
@Hendrixfan1145 mike fetters, probably
@capnsparrow @mawp @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda meh. He was a piece of shit, with such a lasting, shitty impact that he's going to be talked about. So what.
@Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda not anymore. We've been asked not to mention that thing in any context under any circumstances.
ok ok Grant Holmes for Garrett Richards straight up
@finleysgrandslam has it been said a million times?
1 week, 2 days ago on Andrew Friedman Is Going To Do Something That Infuriates You
@Hendrixfan1145 @mawp isn't that still like a million dollar dune buggy though?
@DodgerDodger @mawp @mostly exciting potato @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda i do agree with that. People have irrational attachments to names who have a non-trivial chance of never being anything good (trayvon robinson, andy laroche, zach lee probably)
@Hendrixfan1145 do i get to drive it?
@DodgerDodger @mostly exciting potato @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda that only takes you so far. I agree with the principle, but the dodgers don't have unlimited resources, since they are bound by roster spots. Even they (as we saw this year) won't just write off 20-50 million in owed salary to a crappy player. The core has to be cheap players under team control. Then use the money to fill in with veterans.
@TheConman @mawp @I Digesti @mostly exciting potato you're right. totally half-assed. Bad choice.
@ tomato @mawp @I Digesti @mostly exciting potato different. very differnt
@Hendrixfan1145 who gets to eat the burgers?
@TheConman @mawp @I Digesti @mostly exciting potato I'm trying to nail down how much he values prospects over proven talent
@TheConman @mawp @I Digesti @mostly exciting potato The A's and Lester agree to a sign-and-trade
