    If you love to hate Mattingly, well then you'll hate this as well.

    If it were possible I would like to see Ethier, Crawford, and Kemp traded. I agree no one would ever accept a Crawford deal without having us eat most of what is due to him, which is not possible, but at the same time I feel I would rather see Crawford on this team over Kemp and Ethier.

    Exactly. Thing with Kemp is whenever someone tries to defend why he should still be here, their sentence usually begins with the words: "if he's healthy, or "potentially", or "he could be as good as he was back in..." Matt Kemp is 29 years old, the talk of what ifs and potential is over for Kemp. I've been done with the whole core group of position players that were suppose to lead us to a championship (Kemp, Ethier, Loney, Martin). Almost all those guys started with great potential and had some great seasons, but they all seemed to have eventually flamed out because they were more consumed with being a star then a good ball player. Notice how Martin and Loney have been given a second life the minute they moved out of a big city. I think the same thing is needed for Kemp and Ethier. It would not only be good for their careers, but it would also be good for us as we try to develop and mature Puig.

    Hate to point it out but Yasiel Puig not only has more on-the-field maturity issues than all the four players you previously mentioned combined but he has a history of off-the-field prima donna antics dating back to his time in Chattanooga. Did you honestly forget about his speeding, reckless driving and driving without proof of insurance charges? To me, those actions alone set off entitlement alarms. There are plenty of red flags with Puig. I think it would be incredibly foolish to build a franchise around him until he proves there's substance behind his flash.

    At this point nobody knows one way or the other.

    It looks like we've signed Guerro, again.

    I know absolutely nothing about this kid other than who he's been compared to but if he really has Dan Uggla type power this could be a great addition to our lineup.

    Third times a charm? I don't know why he would hire Scott Boras and then take what seems like pretty much the same contract he supposedly agreed to a while ago though.
