Dodgers: How Does Mets’ Francisco Lindor Trade Impact LA? Could Seager Extension Talks Heat Up?

With the New York Mets pulling off a blockbuster trade for superstar shortstop Francisco Lindor, we take a look at the deal from the perspective of the Los Angeles Dodgers. We break down the deal and discuss whether adding Lindor makes the Mets a legitimate threat to the Dodgers in the National League.

Next, we assess Corey Seager’s future in Los Angeles and why the club should extend him before opening day. Plus, picking between Francisco Lindor and Corey Seager!

  1. I ultimately think that we are waiting to see if Colorado is forced deal there hand for Arenado yet still in the works for DJ, Hendricks, Hand, and Suarez. DJ they are looking for a shorter term contract with more money. Probably 2-3 years 80 mil.

  2. I think the Dodgers will wait & see what the Mets extend Lindor for before any more talks with Seager/Boras.
    Unless they would happen to be finalizing something now.

  3. I am concerned that Seager and Boras will not extend and wait for free agency. That may be terrible timing as I believe there will be a strike.
    I like trading for Suarez. He is a good fielder, hitter and Clubhouse Guy, he won the Reds “Good Guy” award. Suarez has a very good long term contract so it would take a top prospect or two to get it done. Perhaps a guy like Hoese and a pitcher like White or? Might take more but small market clubs are strapped for cash. The Reds may believe they have enough talent to be competitive in the NL Central with the Cubs trading Darvish. If so I doubt they trade. I also like Bryant but concerned he is not under contract after this year. I would only make a Bryant deal if he would sign an extended contract with the Dodgers.

  4. I like Seager (and his bat) for the Dodgers so much more than Lindor! To me seriously the only question mark is Seager’s health. I’m thinking now that his elbow and hip have been taken care of, he’ll be elite for the next several years!
    It’ll all up to Seags how much he wants to stay a Dodger. If the Dodgers make him a great offer but he wants to leave for more money, he wouldn’t be my favorite player anymore!
