@ JohnM @Mike Petriello I don't know how he'll age to 2023 (!) but he'll probably opt out in 2018 anyway. So look at him as signed for 4/$51.5 for ages 25-28 and probably putting up 3-4.5 WAR per year. That's a very team-friendly deal. (If he were a free agent looking for a 4-yr deal, what would he get? $70M?). There is a possible downside, that he stops being fast and you're on the hook for the other 6/$88 of a 29-34 yr. old SS.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Let The “Hanley Ramirez To Third Base” Speculation Begin
@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @DBrim @PuntoForPresident (PuigForPrimeMinister) Uribe showed extraordinary humility in reworking his fundamental approach. Took his preparation seriously, waited for his pitch, went up the middle. McGwire gets a lot of credit here. But Uribe himself too. Not many veteran MLB players have that kind of humility. Although 2 years of being the worst player in the league will do that I guess.

We get to the playoffs as is. Could use 1 more trustable sp once we get there, but 2 is kind of pointless. Billz is probably going to be that for us anyway. Big need is 3b and rp

@Hoze @CodyStumpo Well no, of course if you're only going to give him 200 PA, then he'll only provide ~0.7 WAR and only be worth paying ~$3M for. But the point is you should be able to trade him for something good since he at that point has a slightly team-favorable contract a lot of other teams looking for a starting 2B would like to have. (I say that not being familiar with the starting 2B situation for all 29 other teams).
1 month, 1 week ago on The Dodgers Probably Won’t Exercise Mark Ellis’ Option, But…
From a pure financial option point of view, Mark Ellis's expected value next year is greater than his strike price. "A win or two" above replacement is worth $7M on the open market.
@TheConman @CodyStumpo @Mackyla (Sinful Clubhouse Lesbian) Lawrie is very good defensive 3B, so no need/use for him to playthere lately. But I imagine he remembers how.

@Mackyla (Sinful Clubhouse Lesbian) @CodyStumpo 386 games in the majors at third base.
@Mackyla (Sinful Clubhouse Lesbian) @CodyStumpo As third base.
@EephusBlue I'd like to think so, just to give me something to be mad at Mattingly for. Especially in light of option vesting with NLDS win. Also, all year leaving him in when game was effectively won, to "protect the bullpen." You know what, let the bullpen freaking protect Kershaw!

Jose Bautista is available trade target.
According to Fangraphs, Juan Uribe has now broke even on his 3 yr / $21m contract. He provided
$1.6m, $0.8m, and $19m of value so far in his 3 years.

@The Monocle I had the conviction to, but don't have the logistics of sports betting down so would have had to figure all that out.

@Disgruntled Goat @TellMyWifeISaidHello @apaulogies @BlueMarvin If Utley's open to a 2-year extension, I'd do that deal.

@EEstaris Ned will be faced with Utley/Young/Papelbon/Lee from the Phillies or Aramis Ramirez/Gallardo/Axford from the Brewers. Fear the package deal.

@EephusBlue @ih8turteam @definitely_not_Mike_Petriello Agree. Dodgers will go big again. Ethier will probably go as part of a package.

@FNC(FYCQ) @pmains Puig is coming up at some point this year. Question is if Joc is. If they were going to probably call him up in September anyway, then no real harm in starting his clock now.
