    Iím actually wearing my Seager shirt right now funny enough. Yeah Turner is fine but I wanted them both.

    I mean there are things about Seager that bothered me. I think he strikes out too much, heís hurt a lot, I think he makes a lot of routine errors and he swings at the first pitch way too much. So heís certainly not a perfect player but itís a loss. I also donít think heís worth $325 million.

    Definitely not worth $325. Being a left-hitting SS is a plus. He's a nice player, but definitely not elite.
    I guess this means Semien will continue to play 2B.
    Now I gotta wonder what Correa's going to pull in.

    Robbie Ray to Seattle. 5yrs/$115M

    I anticipate some more moves as the CBA expires Weds night.

    Seager loves that first pitch . Omg
    He really doesnít fit with what LA likes to do.

    Two shortstops going to the same team probably helps Correa's value.

    I have to imagine that the Mets will not be keeping Baez now. I don't want him on the Yankees. I'd rather have Correa. But I've read that Correa may go to Detroit to follow his old manager, Hinch.

    Nothing about Trevor Story, either.

    I just read an article that said in 7 years with the Dodgers, Corey Seager made 25 million dollars. That is remarkable

    if he plays 17 years that is about 20 million a year average in his career with LA and Texas.

    Which is a bargain if you ask me.

    I wonder if Corey fell in love with Texas in 2020 bubble winning MVP.

    LA can't pay everyone. but losing Seager hurts bad

    Now I'm hearing reports that the Tigers are close to a deal with Baez.

    Saw this posted on another site and found it really interesting. Granted some of these are very recent and still have time to play out, but...

    Richest free agent deals (by Total value)WS wins/WS appearances:

    1. Harper: 0/0
    2. Seager: TBD
    3. Cole: 0/0
    4. Machado: 0/0
    5. A-Rod/NYY: 1/1
    6. A-Rod/TEX: 0/0
    T7. Rendon: 0/0
    T7. Strasburg: 0/0
    T9. Pujols: 0/0
    T9. Cano: 0/0
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I think Corey just fell in love with $325 million. I donít think the place mattered that much but Iím sure he didnít mind that it was a place where he hit well.

    Anyway got to move on man. Itís not the end of the world, itís not like the Dodgers donít have the batting champion at shortstop still. It could be a lot worse. Remember they got to the World Series when Seager missed pretty much the entire season. And heís only played more than 145 games once in his entire career, so itís not like he stays healthy.

    I like him too but heís not worth that kind of money, heís just not.

    And if Gavin Lux finally lives up to his promise and starts hitting consistently, it really wonít be a big deal at all.
