    By the time his contract is rolling to an end, he'll have like 3 or 4 rings, and Jesus will have descended from the heavens early to give him a high 5.

    That's different...Mike Trout is never going to leave the Angels, him and Otani will be BFF's forever.

    So I guess that the RedSox and Twins are having trouble bridging the gap, Rosenthal said that one option is for the dodgers to maybe take Graterol and send other prospects, or take the prospects from another team. So this 3 team deal could become a 4 or 5 team trade pretty quick.

    I am also reading reports that it is no longer a certainty that they trades happens at all. It would be hillarious if after all of this the Red Sox turned around and said "on second thought we will just give Mookie his $425 million" and by some insane twist of fate found a way to win the World Series...... Will never happen at this point but would be hillarious. You think Dodgers fans were crying about about the fact they should win the 2017 and 2018 World Series by default????? Just wait

    Yeah, I've heard the push back in boston over trading Mookie has been insane. And the organization is rethinking this whole mess.
    The dodgers aren't just going to take on more of prices contract.

    You think dodger fans will be pissed, angels and twins fans will also be pissed. Those trades aren't going through without this.

    Then you have all these players who've been spending the last several days saying goodbyes, making travel arrangements, trying to find new places to live.

    Tony Clark's 2 cents worth

    "He's getting the best job in baseball."

    and this is all over some supposed questions about Graterol...who is a 100mph guy with the frame to handle it...and health concerns that haven't changed since before they agreed on the deal......I really don't get it even tho at first I was annoyed the Twins would even give him up
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Giants just added 2019 all-star Hunter Pence, and Billy Hamilton for their bench. Dodgers need to complete this trade or risk ceding to much ground.

    Tony Clark is right, these players are being put into such a weird spot right now.

    Yeah, it seems like some sort of weird ploy to extract more out of the trade.

    Like acting as though they didn't know about his health, so they need to be better compensated.
    This is such an obvious ploy.

    The twins pulled out????

    That's crazy, that means the top pitching prospect going back to boston FROM Minny isn't happening...also, that means that Kenta isn't going there...we'll see if the Dodgers/Angels/RedSox can get this done....still.
