We’ve been playing with a new post series. The first one we did dreamed of a David Price trade to the Washington Nationals. Nash and I will often catch wind of some far fetched baseball rumor and then banter back and forth about the fantasy implications via email. If you’ve ever read Marvel Comics, these are like the old school ‘What if?’ stories they’d float out there. We’re going to call it “The Inbox” and we aren’t promise deep insight, just off the cuff banter.
Other than the fact that the Dodgers are giving up a former MVP and almost 40/40 guy for a steals guy that cannot take a walk. Nothing I guess.I get that they have plenty of outfielders to fill in after losing Kemp. So you have to weigh the line up with Andrus, Hanley, Ethier against Hanley Kemp, and whomever the 3B could be without this trade…And didn’t Hanley fight moving to 3B once already?IDK, I don’t see this panning out, not without some other parts at least.
When did you turn into such a Negative Nashy? Dream with me a little bit here!
Don’t you think the Dodgers would take Elvis Andrus if the slate was fresh and they were picking today?!!? After all he’s 5 years younger, signed for longer, signed for less, plays a premium position, and has ZERO injury history.
I need you to go back to your previous email and highlight to word ‘former’ that you used in relation to Matt Kemp, which I do admit was stolen from him by Ryan Bruan. Andrus’ only downside compared to 40/40 man Matt Kemp is that he’s never dated Rihanna. I have no idea what’s next with this trade rumor, but I feel like Andrus to the Dodgers is like true love in a romantic comedy. When the Dodgers finally stop searching for Elvis, that’s when Elvis finally finds the Dodgers.
I’m trying to get in your head with this one, Nash. How am I doing?
I turned 30 and became a curmudgeon.
