Dodgers Free Agent Hot Stove Primer, Talking Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, Corey Seager, and More | Blue Heaven Podcast

While we wait for the conclusion of the 2021 World Series, which is still rudely going on, we figured it was a prime time to start looking ahead to the offseason hot stove in earnest. With that, the guys talk Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, Kenley Jansen, Corey Seager, and every other Dodgers free agent heading out on the open market this week.

Quickly, the discussion goes sentimental on the Kershaw front. Is he a must re-sign guy? What kind of contract is fair for the 34-year-old legend who is coming off his first-ever season-ending injury? And is retirement truly on the table? As for Max Scherzer, is he the right guy to go in on as the team looks for a bridge to top tier pitching prospects in the minor leagues?

Plus what is the likelihood that Kenley Jansen and Corey Seager have played their last games in Dodger blue? And is free agent third baseman Kris Bryant a good fit for Andrew Friedman and the Dodgers this offseason?


There’s plenty of fussin’ and fightin’ and bickering in this one!

    1. Dodger Boy, certainly CT3 should be given FIRST priority to be extended over Seager for sure. The agent for Scherzer is also Boras, so if may be that Boras prices him out of the Dodger’s range as well as I’m sure he will with Seager. Yes, I would want Scherzer back but wss.

      1. How many ways can these guys write the same Story? I’m writing one also. It’s titled, ” Insider thinks the “Dodgers won’t be able to keep all of the same players on last years roster!!”” Or, “Kershaw,Kenley Scherzer just a few decisions to make!!” How about Insider thinks “Corey Seager is a free agent!”

  1. Seager being and everyday player with the best production is number one choice to resign.
    You cannot have enough everyday players that produce, hit for average, are clutch, etc. Dodger have shown that many times this season in the many many games they failed to produce.

    Perhaps CT3 next. But he does strike out lot. His only virtue is playing several positions well with average at best plate production, so it seems there is always a place for that type of player

    The old high paid pitchers kershaw and sherzer are NOT priorities. They can be replace by cheaper younger more reliable starters.

    The front office needs to stop shopping at the dollar store for players.
    You may occasionally find someone decent by accident. But by and large they have not worked out, especially every day players.

  2. I would keep Seager and trade Trea for Jose Rameriz.

    Trea is an exciting player but he disappears when you need him most. And we need a 3rd baseman more.

    And maybe trade Betts as well while he still has value. The Dodgers are never going to get their money’s worth. He’s not going to last 12 years. And Dodgers do not his contract hanging around their neck for 12 years.
