Love the move. Colletti has had the job for almost ten years now so it was time for some new blood. Friedman is young and I'll be interested if he takes the GM job or hires someone himself. Either way. I like the situation. Dodgers have deep pockets and now they have a super bright executive to help get them where they need to go.

Sell high on Gordon/Pederson.
Offer Hanley the QO.
Dump Ethier to anyone listening.
Decline Bills option and bring him on a smaller contract.
Tender AJ Ellis, we need his influence in the clubhouse.
Leave Puig and Kershaw alone.
Keep Mattingly. Yes, he made plenty of unsufferable decisions but there's many managers out there that would make the same damn decisions lol. We should wait until the Chip Kelly of baseball managers emerge.

Miserable time to be a Dodgers fan...Giants about to go to the world series. I think they probably beat KC, as well. KC will be rusty, waiting all this time after the sweep.

All the trash-talking and the fun we had beating them this year is moot - they own our asses again this year.

Miserable? Hardly. 

 

I hate the Giants and their success but fact is the Dodgers are on the right track and nothing other team's do take away from that. Ownership is doing what is necessary to win while also sticking to their plan.  As fans we want to win, but you can't ask much more from having ownership that is keeping their promises. 

 

For me, being miserable was cheering for a team under the McCourt regime. Those were tough times and I will gladly take these heartbreaks over that joke of an era of Dodgers baseball.

 

As for rust, both teams will be impacted from the layoff but it is not exactly huge (Royals 5 days off and Giants 4 days off).

Watching the Gnats possibly win their 3rd World Series in 5 seasons is about as miserable as it gets...

It's really bad, but if you're being objective, if the Giants win, that's 3 world series' in like four or five years. No one in the league can compete with that.

Unfortunately, it's looking really good for the Giants right now, they have Bum pitching. I don't see KC scoring on him.

Super excited about this. I like what the Dodgers have done in regards to upper management since the season ended. So refreshing after the McCourt debacle.

Russel Martin to meet with the Dodgers

It is early in the free agent process, but the Cubs have already met with top backstop Russell Martin, Bruce Levine reports for CBS Chicago. Martin is also expected to visit and undertake preliminary discussions with the PiratesDodgers, and Blue Jays, according to Levine. It is far from clear, of course, that Martin’s market will ultimately be limited to that group. After all, he figures to draw broad interest around the game.

I'd welcome him back.

Upgrade on offense over Ellis, also solid defensively.

Reports indicate that Martin wants a 5 year deal in the $80M range, or as the article stated, "McCann money". Lol.

Interesting.
