Can the Dodgers really afford to trade Clayton Kershaw?
What type of return could they expect to obtain from a guy who not only had back issues in 2016, but can opt out of his contract after 2018?
It’s been said that 2017 will present itself as a less than stellar year for pitchers on the free-agent market.
Who would assume a leadership role on the mound if this were to happen?
What would trading Kershaw do for team chemistry/team morale?
They finally began making strides in this area during 2016.
Would you really jeopardize these gains for whatever return you could acquire by sending your best player packing?
Could you then keep morale and good vibes in the clubhouse and upon the playing field without a dominate force backing them up every 5 days?
I do realize that I said, I didn’t care what happens this off-season…So, I suppose I’m just a little worn down.
162 game season is a long for us fans as well.
Vinny was absolutely marvelous!
67 years and he didn’t skip a beat…
The team was one that surprised us.
They began slower than anticipated then regrouped and you might say overachieved. Although, I believe giving credit where it is due and by claiming over-achievement, well, that would be further souring their hard fought efforts.
2016 was an extremely fun season. Considering…
Notch another year up without a parade!
I’d ask you about your favorite moment in 2016…
But, I’m sure you’d all say that Charlie Culberson is your favorite player and that he was the MAN, for walking it off on Vinny’s last day!
Another reason I’m not too concerned with what goes on this winter. Is that I’m on-board with what this front office has been trying to achieve. I like what I’m seeing. I like the fact that they try each day to put the best statistical line-up on the field. Someday…I would hope the roster is set up in such a way that in doing this you play the same 8 guys more often. The object here is to field the best baseball team possible.
I believe this is one of the catalyst in keeping the focus upon the field. That and being competitive.
You either produce, or you sit. Maybe worse…
Last, but certainly not least. Let me just say…
How about the effort and performance
Dave (Doc) Roberts gave us…
Wasn’t that something!
