    It is being talked about to the point where Turner has gone on the record yesterday saying he would switch positions if they were to sign Rendon.

    Yeah, gotta put it out there so rendon can actually consider it. Like I said, if dodgers offer what they offered Harper or a little more, they may get him but I just donít think heís a necessity.

    Your baby can't do this

The way the Dodgers operate, I don't see Lux missing out on too many ABs in this scenario.
    It wouldn't do Lux any good just to sit around at the major league level and not play, the dodgers would be burning a year of control, and he wouldn't be getting better.
    No either Seager would be traded or Lux would just spend the year in the minors waiting for Turners contract to expire so Muncy can be moved to 1st permanently.

    We can't have Joc in the OF we have to have Aj Pollock for 3 more years.

    So then how is bringing in ONE guy (rendon) really going to change much of what this team does in the playoffs? Espically if Bellinger, Seager, Pollock continue to not hit.

    If were talking about improving at the fringes, lets see if Drew Pomeranz is OK with being a reliever full time, because he was ****ing amazing as a lefty reliever for the Brewers.

    If they have to promise him that they'll give him the opportunity to compete for a starting role in ST then so be it.
    But for a few million he could death on lefties.

    Rendon is a top tier player who has proven he can produce in the post season. Are you suggesting that wouldn't make a difference? He is one of the most consistent players and addresses a need at a position that needs to be filled soon...turner isn't getting any younger.

    In my mind, we desperately need a consistent, every day, right handed bat. We have a handful of guys who can put up some big numbers but tend to disappear during the playoffs.

    I am NOT a fan of overpaying for the big FA names, but this guy is still very young and he's a lot better fit than Machado or Harper.

    We have plenty of talent, and maybe we don't need Rendon to win in the postseason, but to me his consistency is the difference here - batting from the right side doesn't hurt either.

    I'm suggesting that treating signing 1 player isn't the kind of overhaul some of these defeatists are complain about.
    It's basically the same team as the year before.


    He's basically the EXACT same fit as Machado. They even play the same position, but Machado is younger, and better defensively.

    Wait he's a PROVEN post season hitter now?
    Before this post season he put up OPS of .768(2014) .490(2016) .775 (2017)

    He's done well in this post season so far, but he could also totally **** the bed vs Houston.

    Why though? Kolarek was money against lefties after we got him. And he will be way cheaper.

    If this franchise's constant post seasons failures have taught us anything, it's that you can never have to many good relievers.

    Besides, what if Kolerk regresses...or gets hurt...ya'know typical reliever B.S.

    Besides, Kolerk is really a LOOGY while Pomeranz is death on both R/L

    Iím all for keeping koralek if heís used strictly as a lefty specialist. Lefties just canít hit him, thatís useful if used correctly. His splits suggest that heís terrible against righties so hopefully Dave doesnít start to experiment

    This is what I call a face plant, bruh. Rendon is a better hitter than Manny. Show me someone else that is available that has been averaging 25hr, 100 rbi's, and batting over 300 for the past few seasons? Rendon has become one of the game's best hitters since he hit his prime in 2017 and keeps the strikeouts under 90 which means he also has some productive outs in him which is what this team needs the most in October. Rendon and Turner manning the corners of the infield is legit.

    Friedman seems a little different this time even tho he says the same thing after each failed postseason. https://dodgerblue.com/andrew-friedm...QLQJgb21QbUHa4

    Dodgers for me are another year or 2 away from a World Series...they just need to add another ace to their rotation and another bat but other than that that is it
