The team has given up, quit..... need to back the truck up and trade/unload most all of the veteran position players... After watching this season I'd say trade Bell and Dickerson too. Hurdle needs to be fired.... just start over, keep Meadows and let the rest go....as bad as Diaz has been behind the plate, I'd keep him too....

But will they be? They're a team that is in that deadly middle -- not good enough and not bad enough. They're not contending, really, but there is enough of a facade of semi-contnetion that they're not bad enough to sell, in most estimations. The Giants are another team in a similar spot.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

many of the players have increased their trade values over the past couple of weeks.The time to unload these guys is NOW......Polanco needs a new home, ditto for Marte and Dickerson.Nova needs to go too...

Winning streaks change things.

I suspect they'll do what they usually do -- buy some and sell some.

apparently Vasquez is the relief pitcher that the dodgers really want....The dodgers are willing to overpay this year because they want a ring.... the named mentioned was lux.....hunington needs to add another player or two and try to get both lux and will smith or jeter downs.....

Braves looking for an outfielder... Marte needs to be their man.... would need waters and add a reliever like Krick and try to get Mueller and davidson too....

If the dodgers won't give up Lux for Vazquez, then I'd say listen to other teams.... NH needs to stand firm...

good thing that he didn't give Vazquez away....some have stated that NH was scared to make a deal because his last one was so bad.....NH should've traded others besides Vazquez but he didn't... other GM's look to take advantage of him...
