Kinda glad we avoided him. His contract wasn’t bad or anything but would hope we are aiming higher. Robertson, Allen, Ottavino, Britton (if medicals check out and they feel good), etc.

Do we have the money to aim higher?

Robertson is the only one of those guys I'd prefer to Soria(and it's close), especially at 2/17. The only available reliever who has been better than Soria the last 2 years is Kimbrel, and available and unavailable there's been less than 10 relievers better in that timeframe.

Somewhat, but he didn't get better after coming back from injury(6+ ERA in September), injuries beget injuries, and he'll be 34 by Memorial Day.

2/25 for Miller. Certainly reasonable, but obviously he just might be broken. I’d do that same deal +/- for Britton or Allen (I’m starting to really be intrigued by Allen, his underlying stuff was mostly fine/inline with his awesome years last year and if the market never fully develops for him I’d love to add him).

Billy Beane doing Billy Beane things. That looks like a really solid trade for Oakland.

The Dodgers and Reds are “finalizing a significant trade,” according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link). Details are not known, but it’s believed to involve “multiple Major League pieces.”


Guessing it's Puig to the Reds, giving the Dodgers money for Harper.

SIGH.

More like after next season. There is a mutual option for 2020 that won't be picked up by the Dodgers, who will buy him out for $5 million.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

Seriously trying to figure out what cincy is doing with this move... this doesn’t move the needle that much for them does it? Can’t see them any better than third, and that’s with everything breaking right for them. How much salary does this actually save them?

This *costs* Cincy quite a bit of money for 2019.

How do the Dodgers keep finding ways to dump bad contracts and payroll? We can't seem to do it.

Well, to be fair, the three players the Dodgers traded have some intrinsic value, while the players we would like to unload are extremely bad.

Even if this is a salary dump, I'm surprised not to hear more substantial names other than Bailey because Puig and Wood are both very valuable players.
