@Mike Petriello no one, because they're totally trading for Cole Hamels before the rest of the deals are official

Prediction:  The Padres will get a few lucky breaks in 2015 or 2016, make a deep (but ultimately fruitless) playoff run fueled by Matt Kemp heroics, and Kemp will join Garvey as a retired Padres number.

@BehindOrangeLines because he's not blinded by love for Kemp like we are, and he's instinctively scared of Farhandrew making super-awesome moves.

This is the day of trades I've been waiting for since the new FO came together.  Hot Damn!


Now just get someone to take Ethier for a bucket of balls and we're set!

@DodgerDodger @ABSmileBunch The lineup needs Kemp's bat more than the rotation needs Lester.


If money is an issue, then bolster the back end of the rotation with guys like McCarthy.

2 weeks, 1 day ago on Dodgers finally enter Jon Lester sweepstakes

Reply

@LiterallyPFP @Bawfuls So?  The team is as popular as it's been in a long time, attendance is up, and ownership clearly feels like they have something to prove in terms of winning.


Eating half of the CC/Ethier contracts in order to move those guys would free up some money too.

@LiterallyPFP I don't accept the premise that they can't afford both.

Is the any fun/goony stuff one can do at the winter meetings?  


They are in SD and I live here, maybe I should hang out at hotel bars downtown and pass out brochures on how productive Andre Ethier is?

@Dustin Nosler I'll believe the Kemp trade rumors when it actually happens.  Until then I still maintain it's unlikely, particularly within the division.

@666foldamort He's got 1400 MLB PA's and he's 24 so I don't think he counts as a prospect at this point.

@capnsparrow  @Bawfuls Randy Johnson is too. The fact that RJ's case is more robust doesn't mean Pedro shouldn't be a lock himself.

@capnsparrow In what insane world is Pedro Martinez NOT a first ballot HoF inductee?


Even with the shitty stingy voters these days, I would be shocked if he doesn't get in this year.  Smoltz is also probably a slight favorite to make it but I won't be totally surprised if he doesn't this year.

@DodgerDodger Probably that 36 isn't that old for a 1B with good plate discipline, they have a DH slot he can use for some of those later years, and that $21M in 2018 won't be all that much.

It wasn't just the Perez at bat, Bumgarner was all over the place and the Royals swung at everything:

Lets laugh at reddit's baseball sub together.

Here's someone proclaiming that Bumgarner is the best pitcher in the game, based on his postseason performance: http://www.reddit.com/r/baseball/comments/2kfj4k/madison_bumgarner_is_the_first_pitcher_to_throw_a/clktybh

Here's someone else pointing out how dumb that is, and also suggesting that most giants fans would trade him straight up for Kershaw no question. Then a slew of Giants fans come running to say that they absolutely would not.  http://www.reddit.com/r/baseball/comments/2kfj4k/madison_bumgarner_is_the_first_pitcher_to_throw_a/clku1hz

Sure would be nice if MLB would announce game times for Thursday and Friday soon.  I'm trying to pack in two on Friday if possible (Angels because I lost a bet and Dodgers because of course).
