Yeah, that makes it incredibly likely Bryce is going to Dodgers.

Some times it's weird to be older than most on here because I came up with something that's old but reminds me of this series of posts by fathom. So who remembers Dragnet the old radio and TV Show about the Los Angeles PD ? If you do here goes. "Ladies and gentlemen: the story you are about to hear is true. Only the names haven't been changed to protect the innocent." Let the Dragnet theme music play in your head while reading or think of Dan Aykroyd's parody of Sgt. Joe Friday.

Friday 1:35 PM  Fathom says "incredibly likely Bryce is going to the Dodgers".

Assuming the Dodgers get Harper, this is a brilliant trade as they can also use Downs in a deal to try to get Kluber or Realmuto.

1:43 PM Fathom assumes the Dodgers get Harper but also could trade for Kluber and Realmuto

Large trade to just free room for Pollock and LeMahieu

Not sure if this post was sarcasm or not but any way..

1:52 PM Fathom mentions 2 other players Dodgers could go after . In 17 minutes he has Harper going to LA and possibly 4 other guys  . Fathom is stealthy covering all bases .

I agree, as they could be creating room also for Kluber or Realmuto

1:58 PM  Fathom agrees with the poster Chicago White Sox and agrees with him that this trade doesn't mean Harper goes to the Dodgers

I might be naive but I don’t think the Dodgers go after Harper. I’m thinking Pollock and Realmuto

3:11 PM Approximately 90 minutes after saying it's" incredibly likely Bryce goes to the Dodgers" he does an about face and declares "I don't think the Dodgers go after Harper". Still thinking Pollock and Realmuto... and Kluber ... and LeMahieu...

On 12/21/2018 at 4:15 PM, fathom said:

They really should just go all in and get Kluber and Harper, as their window would be the next 2-3 years.

4:15 PM a little more than an hour after saying he "don't think the Dodgers go after Harper" he thinks they should go all in on Harper and... Kluber. No mention of  Realmuto... and Pollock.... and LeMahieu...

On 12/21/2018 at 4:26 PM, fathom said:

I think it's either Harper or Pollock, and not both for them (unless the end up trading Bellinger)

4:26 PM  Fathom issues this definitive statement "It's either Harper or Pollock  !!!

Fathom think you covered your ass enough ? No wonder you're right so many times. You cover just about every possibility.

 

Fade to black , roll credits over Dragnet theme music.

Nice research but I was just going based off of the reports about the Dodgers priorities. For a week everyone thought they were trying to clear space for Harper (including some supposed “insiders”) but it became the narrative that they weren’t interested in him necessarily. I said they should go after Harper and Kluber due to their current window, but I don’t think they will go after both.  Weird for you to pick on me though as at least I wasn’t melting down about the Sox chances compared to most on here.

Sorry it's all just poking a little fun at how quickly you went  from one thing to completely changing your mind. I mean it was like slightly less than 3 hrs you gave all these different opinions. I'm not sure how the narrative changed all that much in 3 hours. I know you also posted a series of tweets but when you consider so many people in the twitter verse you are going to have all kinds of possibilities popping up.

Besides it wasn't research it was more like me thinking "wait didn't he just say the complete opposite a few pages ago" ? The Dragnet/LAPD thing just kind of popped into my head since it's the LA Dodgers. I was hoping that would make it seem a little more lighthearted rather than mean spirited. Sorry if I bruised your ego. Merry Christmas . I really do think you are a quality poster and I only noticed because I take your opinions seriously.

I also envy your screen name . I wish I had the foresight to pick a short recognizable screen name all those years ago when I joined.instead of my 8 syllable goofy name. Maybe something like Fortitude or Rock Lobster.

It’s probably not helping that lots of season ticket holders have lost 15-25% of their net worth in the last month.

But the front office put themselves front and center...failing now is close to unacceptable.  That will leave Opening Day, the Jimenez (and Cease) debuts and the #3 draft pick announcement as the only reasons to get excited.

Unless Abreu or some of the veterans go on huge tears and can attract considerable trade interest in June/July.

 

Hope they signed that television contract on the dotted line before economic conditions deteriorate further...it’s going to be a pretty bumpy ride if we’re forced to suffer through another year of waiting on FA’s to choose the Sox.
