    How the hell did the Dodgers lose Rendon to the fucking Angels? At some point they need to realize they are a big market team and throw some stupid money around.

    Don't you like Turner? I don't like the Dodgers, but I like Turner. True Blue.

    Love JT. Loved him even more when he offered to move to 1st if they got Rendon. Turner still has some good years left but is starting to decline for sure and Rendon would have been perfect for the Dodgers. Oh well, at least we arenít the Mets.

    Rendon getting a contract at the exact pinnacle of his career is wildly fortunate timing. You couldn't script it any better. He's likely at his peak right now so it'll be tough for him to deliver on that contract. It is interesting to note that he was temporarily undervalued when the nats drafted him (and arguable since then before this year) based on injury concerns in college that turned out to be bad luck. So things have come full circle for a guy that started college with a player of the year nomination as a freshman.

    The Mets go big and sign... Rick Porcello for one year.

    I don't think it's a huge risk. Last season was his best in the majors, but he'd already established himself as a great player and last year doesn't seem like a statistical outlier for him. I see no reason to believe he can't sustain that level of play for the next few seasons.

    So, just how rich is Scott Boras, anyway. For God's sake, he's had a nice piece of some big buckets of cash for, what, decades now?

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    Yeah, and it can't be that tough of a gig. It's not like most of these guys are constantly out searching for endorsement deals. He negotiates their contracts every few years and then sits back and counts his money for the rest of the year.

    I picture Scott Boras as watching this movie every day with the same level of enthusiasm.

    Sucks Kluber moving on. And they got kibbles n bits, but at least this kid looks like he has something. Truly meant it as a "look on the bright side, it's not a scrub" kinda thing.

    Oh I got ya. If they can develop this guy he could be a lethal closer.

    Good news is our old pitching coach, Mickey Calloway, that helped develop Bauer, Clevinger and Beiber might be free to work!

    I dunno what incriminating photos our GM has of your GM, but this sure was a hell of a trade. I'm looking forward to seeing Kluber on Opening Day with a T on his cap.

    OK, Farhan. I'm still trying to keep an open mind towards your analytics geek show. But we need pitching and you let Madbum go for 5 years/85 mil? That's pretty cheap. Did your algorithm not factor in that he's veteran presence who can still pitch? Not happy about losing Pillar either. I sure hope this guy knows what he's doing.

    Gonna have to update this to "go get it out of the Pool"

    Madbum was a stud but hes trendnig down and wont be worth that contract in 2 years. Plus he performs best in the playoffs and well, do you see the Giants making the playoffs soon?

    I am glad not to be on the hook for either of those two deals.

    Hard to believe that the Rangers return was the best Cleveland could do on Kluber also.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    He'll be cheaper in the last 2 years of the contract. And while I know the Dbacks won 85 games, I don't really see them truly contending.
