Dodgers’ fan group ready to vent at Astros for sign stealing

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A group of Los Angeles Dodgers fans is making plans to vent its frustration at the Houston Astros about baseball’s sign-stealing scandal.

Houston and the Dodgers don’t play each other during the upcoming regular season, so Pantone 294 is snapping up tickets to the Los Angeles Angels’ home opener against the Astros on April 3 in Anaheim, the Los Angeles Times reported. The group regularly organizes trips to support the Dodgers on the road.

“Spirits are great, man,” utilityman Kike Hernandez said Saturday about the fans. “Positive vibes.”

They aren’t about to become a firm, are they?

Justin Turner on Astros’ 2017 World Series Title: ‘It’s Hard to Feel They Earned It’

The Dodgers are speaking out on the Astros sign-stealing scandal less than two weeks after Major League Baseball confirmed Houston cheated during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

At Dodgers FanFest on Saturday, third baseman Justin Turner said it’s been hard to relive old emotions after hearing about the Astros saga. Los Angeles lost to Houston in seven games in the 2017 World Series.

“We know how hard it is to win a World Series,” Turner said. “We know that it’s something you really have to earn, and with the commissioner’s report and the evidence and what they had, it’s hard to feel like they earned it and they earned the right to be called champions.”

Turner added that he hasn’t spoken to any Astros players and wasn’t sure why former Houston pitcher Dallas Keuchel apologized for the club stealing signs.

With feelings running like this, the coming season should get rather…..interesting.....

L.A. City Council to vote on asking MLB to award Dodgers championship trophies

The Los Angeles City Council is expected to vote within the next week on a resolution urging Major League Baseball to recall the championship trophies presented to the Houston Astros in 2017 and the Boston Red Sox in 2018 “and award them to the Los Angeles Dodgers.”

Councilman Gil Cedillo, one of the sponsors of the resolution, said he expects the council to approve it. As of late Wednesday, the city clerk had not yet determined what day the resolution would come up for a vote.

Cedillo, whose district includes Dodger Stadium, said neither the Dodgers nor his constituents had requested the resolution.

“This is an equity and justice thing,” Cedillo said. “Who was the best team in 2017? Who was the best team in 2018? It was the Dodgers. They got beat by teams that were cheating.

One of those rare things that manages to unite people across the ideological spectrum in Southern California is the utter uselessness of Los Angeles’ municipal government- this serves as a demonstration of why…...

Dodgers’ Quiet Offseason Is Perfectly Defensible

The Dodgers’ offseason has been perfectly fine.

It does not take much to see it this way. Start with some foundational information: The Dodgers entered as the favorite to win the NL West, and a strong candidate to win more than that, and they remain the favorite to win the NL West, and a strong candidate to win more than that. This winter was never going to create any new holes for them; they had relatively few departing free agents, and they have considerable young talent on the rise, anyway. Add the actual record of their offseason action: Their first move was to add Blake Treinen, capably addressing last year’s lone problem area, the ‘pen. They went on to make the no-risk-potential-reward signings of Jimmy Nelson and Alex Wood. They have not done anything else, but if that concerns you, well, circle back to that foundation. Did they have to do anything else? It’s… fine!

But an offseason is full of material besides the foundation and the raw action. There’s all that fits in between; there’s what a team could have done, what it claimed that it tried to do, how all of this matches what it did last season and the one before and the one before. There’s context. And to evaluate the Dodgers’ offseason in context is to see a winter that had room to be unusual.

It started with talk that had been rare for the team under Andrew Friedman, rumors about the race for not just one of the best available free agents, but for each of Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole and Anthony Rendon. This was new: The Dodgers’ previous few winters involved minimal (reported) engagement with premium free agents. That wasn’t the condemnation that it could have felt like for other teams; they’d still spent money, and, above all, they’d won anyway. But those wins had not included a World Series, even after seven consecutive division titles, and so it did not seem wild to wonder if all of this had led them to a tipping point. Simply by seriously talking about Strasburg or Cole or Rendon, they’d established an interest in a different move here. They just didn’t make one.

Is it just me, or does this reek of “famous last words”?

Dodgers Sign Jimmy Nelson

6:35pm: The Dodgers have announced the signing.

9:45am: The Dodgers have reached a one-year deal with righty Jimmy Nelson, according to Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times (Twitter link). The contract includes a $1.25MM guarantee and the possibility of greater earnings, including a vesting/mutual option for another season, according to Castillo, Bob Nightengale of USA Today (Twitter links), and MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy (Twitter links).

Nelson will reportedly be promised just $750K this year. But he’ll earn $1MM in incentives if he makes the Opening Day roster and $500K apiece if he remains on it for 45 and 90 days. Further incentives could also add $1.5MM to Nelson’s 2020 earnings.

As for the option, it will start out as a $2MM club option with a $500K buyout that makes up the remainder of the guaranteed cash. If Nelson throws sixty innings and/or makes forty appearances, it’ll convert to a $5MM mutual option. That price can reach as much as $9MM if Nelson throws 170 frames for Los Angeles in the coming season.

Farfel the Dog, meanwhile, is holding out for a multi-year contract.

The case for packaging Mookie Betts and David Price in a straight salary dump

The idea sounds positively repellant on first blush—package David Price and Mookie Betts to the Dodgers (because let’s be realistic, it can only be the Dodgers) in a salary dump.

No top-tier prospects. No impact players to give the Red Sox a chance in 2020. Just money coming off the books, and not all of it bad. How can a big-market team justify such a defeatist move when it negates the massive financial advantage the franchise holds over its rivals?

But the more I think about it, the more I believe that not only is the concept of a package deal acceptable, but it’s the best course of action the Red Sox can take.

The reality is that trading Price alone, while making long-term financial sense, severely decreases the likelihood that the Red Sox will contend in 2020. He probably represents the safest bet among the trio of overpaid wild cards in the Red Sox rotation, and removing him means either adding another starter on par with the recently signed Martin Perez—his next ERA below 5.00 will be his first in three years—or turning to an opener.

Somewhere, the transit commissioner from SimCity 2000 is yelling his head off…...

Dodgers Trade Rumors: LA Pursuing Mookie Betts More as Lindor Talks Stall

The Los Angeles Dodgers may be shifting their focus toward Mookie Betts as their negotiations with the Cleveland Indians over a Francisco Lindor trade remain at an impasse.

MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi reported Thursday the Indians are looking to receive Gavin Lux as part of a Lindor trade—a price the Dodgers aren’t willing to meet.

“As a result, sources say the Dodgers’ negotiations with the Red Sox about acquiring [Betts] have become at least as frequent—and perhaps even more involved—than their talks with the Indians about Lindor,” Morosi wrote.

According to Morosi, Boston “appears less insistent on Lux” and could find a new home for David Price as part of a Betts trade. The Red Sox have already said they’re looking to get under the luxury-tax threshold for 2020, so offloading some or all of the $96 million remaining on the left-handed starter’s contract would fit with that plan.

At times, the hot stove can verge on soap opera.

Hot Stove Tracker: Dodgers, Red Sox reportedly talking Mookie Betts trade

The Los Angeles Dodgers, eager to finally break their World Series slump, are looking everywhere this offseason for the addition that could get them over the hump. Now, that could also mean Boston Red Sox star outfielder Mookie Betts.

According to Bob Nightengale at USA Today, the Red Sox and Dodgers are “engaged in exploratory trade talks.” The Dodgers, as we’ve talked about already, also covet Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor, and he remains their No. 1 trade priority. Writes Nightengale:

“The Dodgers’ top priority remains Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor, but if the two sides can’t agree on a package for the All-Star, the Dodgers could turn its attention to Boston. The Red Sox are much more inclined to trade Betts – who’s projected to earn $27-30 million in his final year before free agency – than Cleveland is with Lindor. The Red Sox, who had baseball’s highest payroll at $244 million, and will pay $13 million in luxury tax penalties, want to slash their payroll to be under the $208 million tax threshold in 2020.”

According to USA Today’s report, the Dodgers would be willing to part with Corey Seager, their former Rookie of the Year, but not Gavin Lux. Other names in the mix: young catcher Will Smith and outfielders Joc Pederson and Alex Verdugo.

The longer and longer it goes on, the Great Red Sox Freak Out of the 2019 off-season comes across as stranger and stranger, especially to those of us who remember the 2018 season…..

Hot Stove Tracker: Dodgers in, Angels out in trade talks for Indians’ Corey Kluber

One of the most talked about names on the trade market this week has been two-time AL Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. The long-time Cleveland Indians ace has been made available in talks and reports on Saturday suggested several teams were showing interest.

However, as The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, one main suitor has also dropped out of the race,.

...

As for the Los Angeles Dodgers, they are now among the teams in the mix.

...

MLB’s Network’s Jon Heyman says the San Diego Padres and Texas Rangers are involved as well.

So, with all these big names signed quickly, how do you suppose the hot-stove season will go for everyone else?

Gerrit Cole is now a New York Yankee. Nine years and $324 million make that so. But though the Yankees are the only team who gets him, they weren’t the only team interested in him. So let’s take a look at what the losers of the Gerrit Cole derby — the Dodgers and the Angels — can do now that they know they’ve lost.

Well, there’s always the Preakness and the Belmont…..

Dodgers sign Andrew Friedman to extension

Over the weekend, the Dodgers signed president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman to a contract extension, Jon Heyman reported. Details of the contract are not yet known but his previous deal was for $35 million over five years (then a record), so his new contract figures to be better than that.

Friedman, 43, joined the Dodgers after the 2014 season. His five seasons in Los Angeles have been some of the best in Dodgers history as the club won 104 games in 2017 and a franchise record 106 games this past season. The Dodgers reached the World Series in back-to-back years in 2017-18 but lost both times to the Astros and Red Sox.

Well, at least we know who is getting contract extensions quickly this off-season….

There are a lot of useless things in the world.

Screen doors on submarines. Ejector seats on helicopters. But I’m struggling to think of one thing more useless than hot stove rumors in which a team is said to be interested in so-and-so a player but “only at the right price” or “only if the budget will allow” or words to that effect.

Dodgers to shop for starting pitchers, right-handed power as offseason begins

Jumping ahead to points of interest:

How the Dodgers operate this offseason could again depend on their willingness to spend significant money and perhaps exceed the competitive tax threshold — a soft cap that has hardened not only in Los Angeles but in big markets across the majors in recent years. Only the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox and Yankees will pay a tax for the 2019 season, and all three franchises are striving to avoid the penalty.

Despite playing in the second-largest market in the country, drawing the highest attendance in the majors the last seven seasons, and securing a television contract that pays the organization $8.35 billion over 25 years, the Dodgers have not surpassed the line since 2017.

A document prepared for potential investors before the 2017 playoffs reviewed by the Los Angeles Times outlined a plan to keep the Dodgers’ payroll below the threshold through at least 2021 after they paid a luxury tax in each of the first six seasons of the Guggenheim group’s ownership. The projections were not binding, but the Dodgers have remained under the line through two of the four projected seasons.

In January, team President Stan Kasten maintained there were important baseball reasons to stay under the threshold beyond avoiding the 20% tax, which include keeping draft picks and international bonus pool money. In February, chairman Mark Walter insisted there wasn’t a directive to remain below the threshold.

I have to wonder if this maneuvering will have an impact- especially as the Dodgers keep seeming to fall apart in October…..

Ranking Gerrit Cole’s Top Five Landing Spots

There’s no question Gerrit Cole will be the most sought after free agent this winter. He should be the most handsomely paid, too.

Despite a sluggish free agency period last winter that forced many players to settle for below-market deals, the top tier of players still raked in monster deals (with humongous extensions for Mike Trout and Nolan Arenado to boot). It wouldn’t be a surprise to see things play out similarly this offseason, meaning Cole appears on track to surpass David Price’s $217 million deal en route to the most expensive pitcher contract ever.

Who are the favorites to break the bank for Cole and lock up the potential AL Cy Young Award winner? Let’s assess his suitors as free agency gets underway.

So, of these options, which do we see as most likely?

Get ready for another cold offseason

It’s pretty early in the offseason. Teams can’t even sign free agents yet. But they are signaling to the public that, haha, no way do they plan to spend much money this winter.

First the Cardinals who, based on their far-from-impressive NLCS showing strike pretty much everyone as a club that, while good, needs to make some additions to take things to the next level. Will they be spending? From the Athletic:

The Cardinals have practically no financial flexibility, if history is a guide . . . The only way the Cardinals take on significant salary is to trade a major league player or two — and most of their highest-paid players are virtually unmovable — or convince the owners to spend well beyond what they have spent before . . . Does that seem in character for this team? I’ll answer that. No, it does not.

The team’s owner, Bill DeWitt Jr., was asked about that, couched in a question or two about the team’s real estate development, Ballpark Village, next to Busch Stadium. As we have chronicled in the past, teams are increasingly getting into the real estate business and such developments can be pretty massive cash cows for them. The question, though, is whether the real estate money is going to be used to subsidize spending on the baseball team or, rather, if the baseball team is primarily a promotional tool — maybe even a loss leader — for the real estate development.

Something to post now, then check back on in a few months’ time to see how accurate it was.

Braves loss vs. Dodgers loss: which was worse?

The Braves got shellacked in the first inning last night and lost. The Dodgers took a lead late into the game only to see their manager’s choices and their relief pitchers woof it, sending them to defeat as well.

Which was worse?

Both modes of defeat bring with it a certain form of misery.

For my part I sat, as a Braves fan, and watched my team cough up ten runs in the first inning, secure in the dreadful knowledge that the game was already lost. Most people could just turn it off, I suppose, but I felt it necessary both out of professional obligation and out of a certain sense of, I dunno, mourning, that I had to keep the game on for the next three hours. Because I’m also perpetually online it led to a rather extreme sort of nastiness on Twitter and in comment sections with recriminations, complaining and all other manner of ugliness being hurled about. It was a pretty dreadful experience.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will return next season despite playoff failures

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who was heavily criticized in the aftermath of the club’s stunning season-ending loss to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, will return next season, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

Roberts, 47, has three years remaining on his contract after agreeing to a new deal in December. The Dodgers are 393-256 (.606) during the regular season and 25-22 (.532) in the playoffs with him at the helm.

An outfielder for five teams during a 10-year major league playing career, Roberts has managed for the Dodgers for four seasons, beginning in 2016 when he was named National League manager of the year. He has guided the team to the National League West title each season, extending the organization’s streak to seven years.

The club claimed the National League pennant the last two years before falling in the World Series to the Houston Astros in 2017 and the Boston Red Sox in 2018. Roberts was the first manager to lead the Dodgers that far in consecutive seasons since Tommy Lasorda in 1977 and 1978.

Everyone else seems to be taking a page from the Queeg playbook this season- wondering why the Dodgers aren’t…..

Clayton Kershaw Will Never Get Over It

How can this keep happening? How can Clayton Kershaw, who even if he is no longer quite Clayton Kershaw is still Clayton Kershaw, keep going to pieces in October? Could it just be some Powerball-odds-level run of bad luck, with no greater cause? After all, every pitcher has bad days, and maybe one of them just happens to have his bad days in fall after fall. Or could it be something genuinely pathological but eminently understandable, a weakness for pressure? That doesn’t make a ton of sense, given that pitching is by definition a pressure situation and Kershaw’s one of the best ever to take the mound in this sport’s history, but logic clearly has very little to do with it. Or maybe it—the streak, the curse, the choke, whatever—is its own cause: Maybe some early-career fluky blow-ups led Kershaw to be hyperaware of his own postseason performance and overcompensate, overthink, overthrow, a sort of autumnal yips.

Kershaw had no answers after the game, because if there were answers there’d be a solution, and if there were a solution he would have found it by now, and if he’d found the solution there’d be no more questions to which he didn’t have answers. Instead he was existentially bereft, openly wondering if he’d ever get over this—“this” being the latest collapse but also, everything.

“I’ve had to do it so much,” Kershaw said. “I don’t know. It might linger for a while. I might not get over it. I don’t know.”

As Andrew Friedman’s contract with Dodgers nears end, an extension is likely – Orange County Register

Stan Kasten doesn’t get enough credit as a baseball executive.

When asked directly if he expects Friedman to return in his current position with the Dodgers in 2020, however, Kasten did offer a direct answer.

“I am completely certain of that. Yes,” he said.

Kasten sounds like a man who knows a contract extension will be negotiated and announced soon enough. Friedman is not likely to reach free agency. It is hard to find a reason for either side not to continue the relationship.

Plummer is chairman and CEO of R.P. Lumber Co., a retail home center and building materials supplier with locations in Illinois and Missouri.

Dodgers continue their dominance by clinching seventh straight NL West title

Will the Los Angeles Dodgers ever be knocked off their NL West throne?

Based on this season’s results, it’s not looking like that will happen anytime soon.

With Tuesday’s 7-3 win against the Baltimore Orioles, the Dodgers became the first team to clinch a division championship this season. It’s the Dodgers seventh straight NL West title. That’s the longest division championship streak in MLB since the Atlanta Braves won 14 NL East titles in a row from 1991 through 2005.

Although it came against a basement-dwelling team, the continued dominance shown in Tuesday’s clinching victory was fitting of the dominance Los Angeles has shown throughout the entire season, and throughout most of the last decade.

One gets the feeling the Dodgers would rather not be reminded of the Braves in other regards….
