Dodgers!

I was really impressed by them digging out of that 3-1 hole.

In the year of Covid, maybe LA will see 2 champs (or 3).

Bad and good news day for the Dodgers yesterday.
The bad news Corey Seager and Max Scherzer left the Dodgers. The good news  is the Dodgers saved a ton of money.
1. I am sorry Corey is not worth $325 for 10 years in my humble opinion. Look at his injury history with the dodgers according to foxsports. https://www.foxsports.com/mlb/corey-seager-player-injuries

2. Max signed for $130 for 3 years. I honestly thought he wants to be on a team that will compete in the playoffs. The Mets?

If you pay me $45m per year to lose every single game of the season I'll gladly do it.

It's sucks that Corey left, but I agree that it's not worth paying that much money for him given his injury history. Good for him making $325M though.

Scherzer already won a championship with the Nationals, so I agree with Cares, I'll take $130M over a chance to compete.

I would not pay Max that type of money due to his arm situation in the playoffs and his age.

He was clearly fatigued in the playoffs. And you can see the drop off a couple of games before the playoffs already. It was a smart move by the Dodgers not to give him a contract.

And the Dodgers should have enough pitchers next year with May and Gonsolin coming back from injuries. Only problem is that these two young pitchers are very inconsistent. And Kershaw is showing his age as well. So the Dodgers only got two reliable pitchers in Buehler and Urias. The Dodgers really need to stop using Urias as a multi weapon and just have him start. It affected his performance in late playoffs run having pitched too many innings.

Another thing to consider. Shohei will become a free agent next year!  ;)
If he is going to stay in LA. He might as well play for the Dodgers. A team that has a winning atmosphere!

Believe it or not. He only made $3 mil last year according to sportrac.

It would be worth it, but there's no DH in the NL, so Shohei wouldn't be able to bat every game.
