    Lol Luenow having dinner in the Restaurant at the hotel tonight. I guess he wanted to get out of downtown. Wonder who he’s meeting with?

    You could add Max Scherzer to that list as well.

    Sorry about the previous reply. My chromebook is at end I’m afraid and is acting cray cray.

    Luhnow had a ribeye medium rare sub broccoli for mashed potatoes. His wife had the ribeye as well. Don’t know what appetizer they shared. Looked like the seabass ceviche.

    Now that Arenado is available, you have to wonder if the Dodgers might shift their focus from Lindor to Arenado. The Dodgers would have Arenado for eight years instead of only two years for Lindor. It’s almost a no brainer.

    They’d almost have to trade a player or two. Turner would have to go back in the deal. It appears they’ve already decided that they’ll need to part with an outfielder.

    Like I said before, Arenado’s contract gives him an out in two years. Any team that would expect five more will likely be disappointed – and at a minimum is going to have to pay even more to try to keep him in the later years.

    The only way he would NOT take the out would be if his career takes a nosedive, ala Heyward, in which case the new team would have made a big mistake acquiring him in the first place.

    “Our preference is generally shorter and cheaper, and our preference somewhat depends on what we have at the position coming behind,” Girsch said. “If it’s a spot where we feel that we have an opening for the next few years, then it’ll be easier to go longer. If we have a spot where we feel players and options coming, then blocking our guys is counterproductive.”

    These words are good to keep in mind. If the team doesn’t feel comfortable that our prospects will be able to fill a position now or in the near future then they may be willing to move some assets (players or $$) to get what they feel that they need for now. Its hard to say what prospects are ready to step up but are blocked. The same goes for the pitching side. Us fans tend to overestimate our prospects… also something to keep in mind.

    I wouldn’t say asleep. Just hibernating for now.

    An interesting article at The Athletic about something in which we all participate.
