Ya know reading what some Dodger fans are saying makes me hate this game. People throwing out comments like “if they don’t spend money then screw them I'm done with the team.” Without even making ang free agent signings we’re one of the top 2 or 3 payrolls in the league. Spending money isn’t the issue, spending it well is.
And considering they have been drafting late every season for quite a while, they have had an amazing minor league pipeline anyway. Gotta leave room for some of the kids.

Rumor going around that the Yankees want to trade Stanton, possibly to the Dodgers.

I think it's started by fantasizing Yankee fans. They think they can get some good prospects for a long, ginormous contract for an injury prone player who on the Dodgers would be limited to LF.

The Dodgers prize defensive versatility. Stanton has none. He can play corner outfield, not very well. And RF is occupied by a better player who is a Gold Glover there.

Stanton would be in his age 30 season, and with a contract that runs for many years still.

Nope, the Yankees thought they were getting a bargain, but instead bought high after his MVP season - one of less than half of his major league seasons where he stayed healthy. Suckers. It's their problem. He will have a handful of good seasons going forward, but not worth what he's getting paid.

No way we take on that Stanton contract without them giving us top end prospect. I keep reading that while Friedman hasn't spent a lot on free agents since taking over there haven't been 2 free agents he liked nearly as much as Rendon and Cole. It's going to be a very interesting stove.
