With our football season sadly now on hibernation, it just means a new year for the boys in blue! This thread is a continuation of last year's 2013 thread.
First order of the day:
Dodgers are looking to sign Kershaw by this Friday. He was offered around 300 million last season which is ridiculous. I hope he does sign for 7 years at 210 million. That is a 30 million yearly average. Any length longer or any amount higher would be overboard despite being the best pitcher in the game.
Dodgers going after Masahiro Tanaka hard as well. If they happen to land him the rotation will look like this:
Hyun Jin Ryu
If the outfield remains the same, the power hitting will be monstrous if Kemp stays healthy. The lineup as it stands is as follows:
1) Carl Crawford (OF)
2) Yasiel Puig (OF)
3) Adrian Gonzalez (1B)
4) Hanley Ramirez (SS)
5) Matt Kemp (OF)
6) AJ Ellis ©
7) Juan Uribe (3B)
8) Alexander Guerrero (2B)
That is a monster line up! 1-5 would be the most feared in all of baseball.
The beard is back in the fold and the bullpen remains dominant with Howell, Withrow, League (Bleh), and Rodriguez with the long relief. Kenley Jansen remains one of the games best closers.
Let's hope to a better 2014! Let's go Blue!
