    LA Dodgers just made a massive trade with the Reds.

    "The Reds completed a seven-player trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday that will send outfielders Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp, left-hander Alex Wood and utility player Kyle Farmer to the Reds for Homer Bailey and two minor leaguers."

    https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sp...x-wood-trade-dodgers-homer-bailey/2391219002/

    Rumor has it in the Twitterverse is that LA is clearing the decks (and the payroll) for Bryce Harper.

    Let's see if Puig is traded from the Red's b4 the season even starts. Dodgers can HAVE Harper AFAIK, but not sure they can pull the trigger quite yet..but this trade certainly got $$$ off LA's books.

    I would love Mr. Bat Licker myself ... or Harper. I know I am in a minority on both of them!

    Lol~pretty sure I'm the minority NOT wanting Harper. Dodger's already stated they are releasing Bailey (shocker) so they most def just freeing up $$$$ for BH. I mean, it's a perfect fit for his ego, close to Lost Wages /family for when they start a family. KB will follow the same plan to be on a west coast team in 3 years.

    I see L.A. having room in the budget to get Kluber...Harper may be trickier and if they finagle both, hats off for using Disney math :rotfl2:

    Bryce lives with his wife, not his dad. So wife wins that battle 100/100.

    Cubs are picking up a right handed starter who just had Tommy John surgery this year. So he probably won't pitch at all in 2019, but they only have to pay him $575,000 in 2019, then $2 mil in 2020. Kendall Graveman from the A's.

    Exactly. Pick 'em up cheap and sell them for more. Buy low and sell high.
