The Dodgers added the top free agent starter on the market to the team last week, building on the excess of excess starting pitching at their disposal. With Trevor Bauer in tow, Dave Roberts has a lot of good to have problems to sort through before opening day. Including in the bullpen.
So if the pitching staff is overloaded, should the club look to trade from an area of depth? There’s a desire to trim payroll and there’s currently a need at third base, if Justin Turner doesn’t come back. We dive into some trade candidates like David Price and even Kenley Jansen and wonder what, if anything, they could get in return for the high-priced veterans.
And finally, MLB and the players union reportedly at long last agreed to something for the first time all offseason. The two sides came together on health and safety protocols for the 2021 season but still remain apart on expanded playoffs and the universal designated hitter. Plus, the league is planning on “deadening” baseballs next season. So much for the long ball?
