post #2941 of 10233
Glad to see him back. With us non tendering beli, hes all the more important. Withrow slides into belis RH middle relief role, still have dominguez and paco. I like out offseason thus far.

Guerrero, haren, wilson. Maybe papi is next (hopefully as a utility role)....wouldnt be mad if hes opening day 3B. Next......kersh extension. Hanram extension, maybe.....maybe look for a 3B.

These kemp rumors are concerning. If anyone should be dealt..its dre or craw...preferrably craw..nothing personal...I just think kemp and dre offer more at thier salaries.

vindeezy, in regards to Kemp I'm torn. He was a part of the reason I started following the Dodgers hard the past couple of years, especially after that monster should-of-been MVP season. As a Mariner fan first, I'd love him in the outfield up there. It would be weird seeing him on another team though.

In regards to the outfielders, outside of Puig, I'd actually be trying to move Ethier; Crawford looked really good in parts of last season despite his bad contract...

^^I think matt has alot left in the tank....preferrably, id rather have 2 power hitting RH OFers than 1 (puig) and dre and craw........buy well see.....I also think kemp wont sniff 30 bombs playing 81 gms (if healthy) in safeco or fenway.

I trust ned. Semi srs.
post #2944 of 10233
What are the proposed deals for kemp?
post #2945 of 10233
Sea is one...taijuan walker/seager+others would prob be a starting point. Im not down.

Dre to boston for middlebrooks or a multiplayer deal invlolving both as principles is prob a possibility.

Doubt Seattle will give up Taijuan + pieces unless LA eats a lot more of Kemp's contract than reported. I'm thinking it'll be Hultzen/Paxton plus Nick Franklin and/ or Brad Miller.

As a Mariner fan and someone that pulls for the Dodgers , I actually think it would cool to see Taijuan in LA..that rotation would be CRAZY.

Glad to see Wilson back, Belly gone too.

Kemp isnt going anywhere, Seattle signs Cano and trades for Crawford so they have C&C duo.

Im leaning cano to sea as well...theyre way above what anyone else is gonna offer@225M (at the moment). If we trade craw to sea, I bet sea would make LA most of it..lol. havent heard any speculated destinations for craw like I have matt or dre. :/

I have heard laa and lad and a few others are gonna push hard for price. I bet theyd unload 2 A level prospects for price and reload with prospects in a seperate deal for an OF assuming we eat salary.

Someone taking Crawford is a pipe dream, he has zero value even when picking up a chunk of his bloated salary. Ethier has minimal value and Kemp has the most.

Still an outfield of Crawford, Puig and Ethier... eek.gif, that would be a nightmare. Not only is it a poor outfield defensively, but you got two guys that can't hit righties. They are both bad enough that you have to seriously consider platooning them.

Not a fan of the Brian Wilson signing, just feel the money could've been allocated elsewhere. Boston got Mujica for two years at the price we got Wilson. Withrow was solid last year, but can he withstand a full season of use by Don Mattingly. JP Howell is still unsigned and he was a vital cog to the bullpen last year.

Bench is still thin, third is still wide open and they have only signed a question mark to fill second base (Guerrero). Guess they are hoping Cuban lightning strikes twice.

Teams are actively making moves, maybe the front office will stop sitting on their hands during the winter meetings.

Mariners are not moving Saeger, laugh.gif

Mariners are not going to take on Crawford, and the return for Kemp will not be that high. If Kemp isn't a Dodger in 2014, they better have a plan, 'cause the OF I mentioned earlier is a scary yet realistic.

^^if were giving up kemp AND eating money....they better include seager and multiple prospects. If not, no deal.
post #2952 of 10233
I really don't think Seager will be moved. I see Taijuan+pieces being moved in ANY trade before Seager is thrown out there.

I just dont think matt freekin kemp...a .290/30/100/20-30 SB guy in his prime...is gonna be dealt for a pitching prospect and other prospects..AND wed eat salary...I dont see it. If ned does that.......hes depodesta to me.
post #2954 of 10233
Dave Stewart(matts agent) came out today saying he expects matt to be dealt during next weeks winter meetings. It just got even realer.

Im not a fan. At all. Are the dodgers that sold on craws lil mini playoff run? 2 yrs ago, he was widely considered the best player in the game. They have to know something we dont.

Im not down with craw/dre/puig as the opening day OF. At all.

There better be a major league ready player(s).

You can see some of the quotes here about what his agent said.

I would be pretty upset if we let Kemp go...

"LOS ANGELES -- After officially announcing the signing of reliever Brian Wilson, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti on Saturday confirmed he's open to moving an outfielder."

Got an update on my SportsCenter app that the Dodgers have contacted the Rays and expressed interest in trading for Price.

Seager or Walker... laugh.gif

None of the outfielders outside of Puig have enough value to snag either of those guys.

No on believes in Crawford, that'st he problem, the other 29 teams in baseball don't see him serviceable enough to warrant the headache of having him on the field and the clubhouse. Wouldn't mind Ackley of Franklin for Ethier/cash. Ackley is up and down and Franklin just lost his job to Cano.

Ackley struggled early last year because our batting coaches were trying to tweak some of his mechanics, he actually ended the season doing a lot better. Nick Franklin started off really well and faded toward the end, but the kid is nice.

Like I mentioned many times already, I love both of these teams so I'd want the best for both squads. Looks like Boston isn't really in talks for Kemp anymore, if the M's can't present anything decent to LA, I really hope he stays put in Dodger blue.

Ackley was a beast at UNC (Go Heels)....but regardless, really hoping we don't move Kemp. I see the thinking of course (we all do), but I'm still a believer he can come back healthy and kill it.

 

I hope Ned doesn't "overthink" or "over tinker" for next year.

I still don't think Kemp moves unless the return is solid, cause the potential is there and the Dodgers will be eating money.

I want to see Ethier moved, he's on the downside of his career, we'll eat money and if we can get a low risk/high reward guy like Ackley, it would be nice. Don't want another season of Mark Ellis if Guerrero doesn't pan out.

Mark Ellis officially gone to the St. Louis Cardinals, smokin.gif and mean.gif

Cards plan to use him as insurance for Kolten Wong, there is now no insurance if Guerrero fails.

Juan Uribe back at two years, $15 million. Not many alternatives out there, but not banking on him repeating his 2013 performance.

When you think about it, mean.gif

To his credit, he is a nice guy, good clubhouse guy. Has the mentality of a Joe Schmoe who got lucky enough to have talent to play Major League baseball.

Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp is trying to keep silent about the rumors he's hooking up with Khloe Kardashian -- but TMZ Sports has learned there's definitely something cooking between them.

Our Kardashian sources tell us Khloe and Matt are in the early, early stages of a relationship and they're "taking it really slow." Makes sense -- Khloe just filed to divorce Lamar Odom last week.
