Bullpen Leaders since 2014 and Pedro Baez’s Role

I heard about the signing of Corey Knebel for 5.2 Million and it was a bit unmoving in many ways. A quick view of the stats and I will say that we got a decent deal on a “promising project”, however, it is unmoving because there are a few Dodgers in the market available withContinue reading “Bullpen Leaders since 2014 and Pedro Baez’s Role”

Keeping Kike

Here is a strong case I will make for keeping Kike Hernandez. Kike was due 5.9 Million in 2020 but of course the pandemic slashed his salary due to the lower amount of games played.
