The Dodgers really did Boston a favor by taking those huge contracts, enabling them to be where they are now, and maybe costing them a WS this year.

buuuutttttttt

If they didn't get Gonzo, they wouldn't have traded for Kemp, who was their MVP a while. 

That trade seemed to have got them a ticket to the World Series, and an exit

Imagine being a D-Backs fan and in the course of a couple days you see Patrick Corbin sign with the Nationals and Paul Goldschmidt traded to the Cardinals.  And... You know AJ Pollock is about to leave too.

Tough time to be a Diamondbacks fan.  I can't imagine.

Angel fans have been lucky because we've never seen such a devastating change in personnel like this.  The D-Backs basically lost the iconic face of their franchise and a top of the rotation starter in one swoop.

Some speculate this all came about because they failed to keep JD Martinez.  The impact was felt when they failed to make the post-season last year and now this...

2008-2009 kind of felt this way. We lost Guerrero, Lackey, Figgins, K-Rod, and Teixeira.

Obviously a little different and over a longer period of time. But those guys were with the Angels for a long time  Teixeira wasn’t an Angel for long but losing him still stung.

This has alaways been baffling since language would say that pole determines a ball out of play.

Growing up my parents owned a Hotpoint refrigerator and a Coldspot range. Two companies creating products that do the opposite of their brand names. 

. . .and you are branded "excellent" in your profile.  Go figure, right?

Why are these posts not baseball related?

speaking of, i was at the elton john concert last night. up on the walls by the Sparks championship banners, there's a big banner talking about taylor swift and the staples center record for sold out concerts there. thought i saw your initials somewhere on the bottom of the banner.
