I don’t know. Is this a sort of “Trade Mike Trout” article?

Ed Chung on Twitter: “Happy Halloween, @JPosnanski. I told my wife you were one of maybe two people in the country who would understand our costume theme for the year (her idea, btw!). Prove me right 🙂 https://t.co/PLChHMGcKd” / Twitter
that’s cool. Thanks for sharing.
Love the comment that the kid in the Astros jersey got the least amount of candy. Hope it is a joke.
Ha I thought it had something to do with the first 4 expansion teams
My profile picture says hi….
Can our future draft picks be traded in exchange for non-performing players like the Lakers may be doing to get rid of Westbrook? It seems like that’s not a thing in MLB.
I do not believe MLB draft picks can be traded. I think there is an exception made for competitive balance picks but not ordinary draft picks.
Regular draft picks can’t be traded. I figured they would after the slotting system came into play, but no.
Some competitive balance picks can get traded, but I don’t think we get those.
Rendon. Still on the team. Still living inside your head rent free huh.
My guess is that Turner is back in LA with about a $10 million in total take home.
Which Turner? Justin, Trea or Tina?
Ya i think it will depend on what Turner wants. Does he want more playing time, or does he want to be on a contender
I could envision both, but if he’s back on the dodgers I’d imagine a modest 7 mil deal or so with some incentives for plate appearances, games, etc.
Exactly. Of course the Dodgers will have to eat the $2 million buyout fee to get to the $7 million contract so that’s $9 million in total.
All I know is that I don’t want to have to look at him all the time unless he gets back on the roids (or figures out why he shrank so much) or someone pays me 1M a year.
