    There are also additional penalties for going over it for consecutive years.

    TL;DR on this thread. What ever happened to the rumored trade involving Taylor Jones?

    Well. Let’s just hope McCullers and Grienke are lights out in the postseason.

    I think our bats will be hot enough, but if Grienke and McCullers are off then forget it.

    I know we have yet to see what the White Sox gave up, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed.

    What I'm telling myself...

    In 2017, Dodgers had a lights-out bullpen, while the Astros pen sucked!
    In 2019, the Astros had a lights-out bullpen, while the Nats pen sucked!

    But with the additions of Graveman and Garcia, along with Baez getting healthy, does our bullpen still suck??

    They lost Mick Madrigal for the season and he was a stud at 2B. If their other injured players come back healthy then they’ll be our only competition IMO. We still don’t have a true ace but maybe Framber can turn it around and Greinke and McCullers keep up what they’re doing as of late.

    2020 Everybody sucked. Dodgers should have received a cardboard cutout trophy.

    Looks like he was added to the trade but doesn’t change much since he can’t play this season anyways

    Ok, after seeing that, maybe I'm not THAT disappointed. Holy ****.
