@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

@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?

@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 @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?

@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)

@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.

@DodgerDodger @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @Disgruntled Goat his career won't be done until he's in his late 30s. He may regress hard, but he'll always have teams interested in his raw talent, even if that's just a bench piece who can run
