    Going to have some rotation next season. Potentially

    Beuhler(1)
    Bauer (2)
    Urias(3)
    Price (5)

    With May and Goslin filling in

    Think the Mets dodged a bullet. But the Dodgers have a damn good rotation

    Been honest, I wasn't too bothered where he went, and definitely didn't expect him to come to the Dodgers.
    Now though, I'm excited.

    I agree, it was crazy money with walk-away clauses. Not sure 2021 is going to be all that great a baseball season, nothing will be seriously reopened before the late summer.

    Hopefully Syndegaard comes back strong. Dodgers do look loaded though, would love to prove who's better in a fall playoff :)

    In "News that is completely unsurprising," Tim Tebow retires from professional baseball. No more Wilpons in NY, no more Tebow circus.

    Mariners president did a Mets by saying the quiet part out loud during a rotary club meeting that was recorded. Among the things he commented on:

    - Mariners manipulate service time to get more years out of young players (kind of an open secret but lacking evidence so far)
    - complained about paying $75k for an interpreter for Iwakuma
    - said Kyle Seagar won't be back in 2022 (there's a club option)
    - complained that the English of a 20 year old prospect from Dominican Republic was "not tremendous"

    More here: https://sports.mynorthwest.com/1317180/mariners-ceo-kevin-mather-comments-statement/

    Probably the top one is going to be the biggest issue, there's a new CBA needed soon and service time is going to be one of the big sticking points.

    Somewhere Tony Clark is rubbing his hands with glee.

    We need a 2021 Regular Season thread!

    I see that Lindor got his money. €341M over 10 years.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,135 ✭✭✭✭Igotadose


    As goes Lindor, so goes Steve Cohen (Mets owner.) Big splash, big money. The contracts being thrown around these days...

    And you're right, regular season starts today!

    No regular season thread?
    Interested to see what happens with Trevor Bauer. Some baseballs he pitched with have been sent to MLB for investigation


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,135 ✭✭✭✭Igotadose


    Shame no regular season thread. What DeGrom did last night was pretty epic. 15k's/2 hits, drove in 2 runs himself. Complete game, too.
