    With the Dodgers payroll last year, you could’ve taken the best 10 or so players from the Braves, Padres and Rays (the teams LA beat) and formed one mini-All Star team.

    I hope we’re still “cheating”. **** everybody.

    This is what I’m hoping for. I feel like the Padres will push hard for Berrios, especially after getting outbid for Scherzer by their division rivals.

    I still think Click does SOMETHING else though.

    I think the ultimate FU would be to stand pat, NOT pay $30M in luxury tax alone, and STILL beat them in the World Series.

    All while having none of our players go to jail.

    Best post I’ve have read regarding to sign stealing. F**k the Dodgers and Yanks. Keep cheating if we have to beat those mofos. What they’re doing is cheating the systems too. City of LA is known for buying championships.

    Would you entertain a trade for Salvador Perez?
    Would take a lot. 5 years left on contract. Making 20 million a year.

    We are a solid team. No starters out there that would crack our number one slot. We could upgrade catcher, upgrade center. Every other position is a lock. Back of the bullpen looks good.

    We could try and make a big splash with Kimbrel/Bryant if Astros want to go over luxury tax.
    Try for Salvador Perez.

    We don't have a ton of prospects to ship out.

    Houston is still the best team IMO in the AL. I still hope Click does something else. I think just adding two arms shouldn't be a job completed.

    Has SF make any move? I don’t hear much about them besides Dodgers and Padres out west.

    They don't have as many great players which allows them to be buyers and sellers at the same time. If the Astros even tried to trade their closer, there would be a revolt.

    Really seems like all these AL teams making moves are trying to take us down.
