My guess is that the real question will be do you trade Puig for Giancarlo
I don't see the DH being adopted by the NL, and if it somehow happens, I don't see it happening soon enough for the Dodgers to take advantage of their overloaded OF situation.

I've been wrong about a lot of farm hands admittedly (looking at you Chuck Tiffany, Derek Thompson, Andrew Lambo etc, etc, etc) but this one...
You were really bent about Tiffany
. I don't have qualms with trading prospects because at the moment that is all they are, a crapshoot, a load of potential, a major gamble. If you are going to trade them be smart about it. Colletti either gets fleeced (Santana) or trades prospects when their value is at rock bottom (DeWitt, La Roche, McDonald).

Padres started a lefty, I'm sure Donnie didn't want Gonzales and Ethier batting back to back even though both are hitting lefties fairly well early. He's a Torre disciple, not shocked. In defense that would be Hanley sandwiched between Gonzo and Ethier but Uribe is the best option considering Sellers is starting and the bench is lacking anything close to power.

What a pitching gem of a series.
It's a part of their overall sponsorship agreement and it isn't 100% funded by the sponsor. If you ever compare our giveaways to other teams, pay attention how the Dodgers limit the size and placement of the sponsors logo. The organization would rather eat some of the cost and keep the giveaway classy. On bobbleheads they only allow the logo to be placed on the box, and nowhere on the bobblehead. Sponsors have tried to pay the total cost to have their logo be a part of the bobblehead, the Dodgers have declined. (It goes back to the O'Malley days)
No Dodger bobblehead has a sponsors logo on it. Just an example. So yes, ownership is putting money into the "fan experience" which includes giveaways... people love free ****.
Back to the game...
Padres getting some timely hitting, can't say the same for the boys. Hope Kemp breaks out of his funk, he's killing us right now.
Oh, Stanton for Puig... straight up... I'll pull that trigger with no hesitation. Stanton is what we are hoping Puig becomes one day. Relatively the same age and at this point Stanton is cheaper. **** I'll even do an Ethier/Puig/Cash for Stanton deal... like yesterday.
