Your (revised) 2017 World Champions...The Los Angeles Dodgers. Congrats boys!

 

Honestly, the only thing I’ve enjoyed more than actually watching the Dodgers crash and burn in those two World Series losses is seeing the reaction to the dugout bang from some Dodgers fans. It’s like seeing them lose the World Series a third time!

I’m about as big of a Bumgarner fan that there is, and I’ll ALWAYS be a fan of his for what he did with the giants. But for five years, $100 million +? Ok, D Backs. Take him. 

 

Edit: Ok, wait. $85 million? The Giants really couldn’t do $17 mil per? I guess that extra year (Ok, extra two years, once it gets there) was too much for them.

5 years $75-80 million is the what they’re saying

Is it wrong of me to hope that Edwin Jackson signs with a team he's never played for and that the team he's just signed will mean he's played for half of MLB?

 

Why would it be right or wrong?  Why are you worried about what others think about this desire?

Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch suspended for one year for the sign stealing scandal.  

 

EDIT: to add that the Astros forefit their 1st and 2d round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and were finded $5 million.

That's a slap on the wrist if I've ever seen one. I'm sure the fine is the highest MLB could legally go but the suspensions should have been longer, international money should have been stripped, and more draft picks should have been taken. College students get hit way harder for cheating than the Astros did and I bet most teams are willing to trade what the Astros got for a title which is why I feel the punishment wasn't harsh enough, at least Alex Cora is probably gonna get boned hard.

Yeah I agree that it seems like an overreaction, because I think it’s totally widespread. But considering Cora is known as the “ringleader”, and that he had a lot of influence over TWO World Series titles that people complained about? I can’t see him not getting the hammer brought down on him HARD for this one if Hinch got a year. Beltran is probably :censored:ed, too. 

 

 

EDIT: 

Yeah, Alex Cora is absolutely SCREWED. He might do well to just resign right now.

To me that reads more like Hinch throwing Cora and his own players(!) under the bus, especially given what we know about the Astros' FO being a crowd of deeply slimy people.

 

Cora can take a couple years off at the same time the Red Sox take a couple years off to save John Henry a few bucks. Works out nicely for them.

You can cross out suspended and replace it with fired.
