    MLB 2019-20 Off-Season Hot Stove

    Aaaand...the fucking nerds are at it again.

    LHP Casey Crosby signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers. He played for Butch Hobson CHICAGO Dogs Independent team. Was clocked hitting 100 mph on gun.
    Ah yes, a signing out of the Butch Hobson Independent League is EXACTLY what we need to finally get over our 31-year old hump.

    Looks like former Astros lefty reliever Reymin Guduan signed with the Dodgers. Guduan was suspended for the second half of last season and then DFA¬’d in September

    The reason for the suspension is discussed here:

    Imagine that, a player with disciplinary issues that even the Astros wouldn't tolerate.

    The fucking nerd Friedman is such a joke, talking about being able to better target elite players because the pool "is much more narrower group" this year than in years past.

    So he didn't sign anybody worth a shit the last two years when the talent pool was much deeper but he will this year? Sure, asshole.

    Wait, why do I even care anymore? Next season is a wash anyway, when everybody will regress and be a year older. Nothing he does will matter.

    This ownership is pathetic. Always cheap out on the marquee free agents but approve overspending on shitty/injured players. $10 million for Blake Treinen and his almost 5.00 ERA?!?! Haven't we suffered enough from the Joe Fucking Kelly signing last year?

    I wonder what the Angels will think when the baseballs get downgraded a bit and Rendon returns to a 'normal' good hitter.

    Anthony Rendon on not choosing Dodgers - L.A.'s 'Hollywood lifestyle' not a fit

    So...L.A. gets a bad rap from residents in other cities (*cough*San Diego*cough) because there are too many "ethnics" here, yet here's an ethnic Mexican who is complaining that L.A. is too Hollywood for him. Which is it?

    Bumgarner signs with the Dbags for 5(!) years. They could have just kept Greinke for the remaining 2 years of his deal instead.

    San Diegans just hate LA because it's LA.

    I admit Rendon's statement makes no sense to me, though. Even if it's true is it really that hard to commute 20 minutes from OC?

    Not that I'm upset he went to the AL instead of a division rival.

    For the money he just signed, he could afford the helicopter that Kobe used to take from OC to the game.

    Puto Rendon is going to get $245M for playing baseball, and he's taking pot shots at how people here want to live like stars.

    If Mookie Betts is traded to the Padres, will their fan base call him a cheater for his association with Cora?

    Since, you know, they seem convinced that Bellinger & Co. cheated while Mookie's team is the one currently under investigation.
