    Default 2016 Dodgers Season Thread

    I heard rumor Dave Roberts was in the running (hah!) to manage?

    Dear Dodgers:

    I would become a born-again die-hard fan if you do this.

    Sincerely,

    Heard on talk radio that Gabe Kapler and moneyball management is a good possibility.

    I don't understand the point of this thread. I can summarize the entire offseason for you: The Dodgers will spend another $4 Billion to lose in the playoffs again.

    So, Kershaw is fed up with Puig's act. I'm shocked at that revelation.

    I was a little skeptical on Dave Roberts, but so far I love his coaching philosophy:

    Roberts, who said he will lean on Friedman and general manager Farhan Zaidi for help in the coaching search, laid out his ideal criteria for joining his staff.

    "I want teachers. I think that sometimes people at this level get caught up in feeling we can just roll out the ball and let these guys play. I want teachers, and I want leaders, and I want guys around me who will challenge me, and help me grow. I'm going to do the same thing," Roberts said. "I want the players to know that the coaches around them are there to make them better, that they trust them, and they care about them. If a coach can check those three boxes, then I'm all in."

    Greinke to the Dbacks for 6 years at $32.5M per. I wanted him back but I understand why the front office might think that's a risky deal for a 32 year old. And having Kershaw and Greinke didn't win us **** the past three years anyway. Time for a new strategy.

    Matching that contract would pay him 4 million per year more than Kershaw. The Dodgers were right to not do it.
    Now go get Alex Fernandez for Puig and Cueto for cash.

    Cueto is now the enemy, and they loaded up on more prospects in the Frazier deal.

    You all aren't going to like me saying this, but honestly they shouldn't sign or trade for anybody. Sign the Japanese pitcher, and let those kids move up to the big leagues and take the hit for next year, IF it comes.

    The Yankees were dominant for quite some time not because they signed a bunch of pricey Free Agents, but because the were able to develop Jeter/Williams/Posada/Pettite and then made signings and trades surrounding that core with and sustaining talent there. That won them 3 in 4 years, 5 Overall, and made them the Class of MLB for over a decade.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
