    I get the Robertson deal if its 1 yr veteran minimum to see if he has anything left but certainly not to replace Chappy. If your trying to replace Chapman fine, but Robertson isn't that guy.

    Don't get the Verlander idea .

    I don't understand how anyone wouldn't want Lindor on this team, he improves this team in alot of key ways and he's just starting his prime.

    So far this series is a true case of the two best teams in their sport playing for the title

    these really are the 2 best teams in the MLB. They are about as opposite financially as they can get but the foundation of both their organizations is player development. Both these teams are excellent at finding, drafting and developing talent and that plays a massive part of their overall success

    In the dodgers case spending over 200 mill is a bigger factor than player development . Although I give the dodgers
    Credit for their new ace .

    The Dodgers have developed Kershaw, Buehler, Urias and May starting pitching wise. The developed Bellinger, Seager, Peterson, Barners, Smith and other on the MLB roster, they we also able to completely change the careers of guys like Turner, Muncy, Ect. Also think about all the huge trades they have pulled of using there own specs, Darvish, Machado, Betts to name the main ones. They gave up some significant assets to get those players and still have to top farm system. In addition to that they still have a top 3 farm system.

    While being able to spend big has certainly helped them but they wouldn't be anywhere close to where they are today if they didn't do an excellent job of finding and developing talent

    Freidman proved how well that philosophy worked when he was in Tampa, he's just has the money to do it on a bigger scale with the Dodgers, plus he has the financial security to go out and spend at the top of the market when he wants/ needs to. Even though Freidman is a huge anals guy, he keep actual baseball people around him to help make decisions.. They have set up that franchise for continued long term success better than any other team in the league IMO.

    When u have a pipeline that seems to develop atleast 2-3 MLB average or much better specs a yr to use either to fill their own holes or use them as chips to get pieces like Betts and u can afford to spend money whenever u need to thats a recipe for sustained long term success

    That;'s my feeling. He improves defense, the lineup, the base paths. Some don't feel adding a lefty bat is beneficial. I do. I'd love to add more but where?

    If Roberston was cheap? Yes. I'd do it but again, he's 36 and hasn't pitched in two years because of a TJ surgery setback. He's not a reliable choice. He's risk reward.

    Now reports saying that there will not be a universal DH.

    Manfred has got to be the worst commissioner in the history of the game.

    There are not too many pooches left for him to screw

    I'd love for the Yanks to sign Brantley. All the guy does is hit and with our inability to keep our OFers healthy he would definitely have a chance to get 400+ ABs
