  1. Yes. AF is the best in baseball. He was very good when he was with the Rays and had to work on a shoestring budget. The Dodger ownership group has much deeper pockets. These are two necessary ingredients to build a dynasty. There’s a lot more that has to go right, but you definitely need brains and bucks.

  2. He may be right now, but after seeing the massive extension Tatis got in San Diego, he’s gotta figure out Seager/shortstop and soon!

    1. If Seager wants to wait until next year to sign a big deal, it’s not a huge worry for me. He would be selling high right now, after that great half year he just had. The huge risk is all on him. If he has another injury that needs surgery, his value will plummet, with hip and elbow surgery already in his history. Who wouldn’t want to play for the Dodger’s, assuming you like winning. So many other teams have different issues, in Arizona or Florida you’re playing in 100+ degrees, in NY, Boston, Philly you’ve got hostile press and unforgiving fans, right now the Dodgers are a dream for a ball player, and they have the money to pay.

  3. Andrew Friedman is no doubt the Best! He won my respect when he signed Mookie “MLB” Betts (50) last year and this year Trevor Bauer and Justin “Red Dream” Turner (10). He put together a Dynasty Team for 2020, 2021, 2022 and many more years to come!
