Deep, But Playable: Collective Bore-Gaining Agreement

Craig Goldstein

The biggest changes are on the international spending front.

There are going to be a lot of reactions to this CBA, and, given the makeup of the writer base, there’s going to be no shortage of them that have already told you the things I plan on covering, at least in part. We should also note that some things are still being worked out, and thus what has been reported is subject to any changes that come down the pipeline. In the meantime, let’s get some good old fashioned thoughts on the items that have been announced:

Washington grabbed a 2-1 series lead as the two managers handled Game 3 much differently.

The final score hardly told the full story, and yet it was far more representative of the game as a whole. A four-run ninth turned what was a tense, belabored slog into a laugher. The Dodgers got off to a quick start, as for the third straight game their starting pitcher struck out Trea Turner in his first at-bat and, for the third straight game, Corey Seager drove in a run in his first at-bat. It was downhill from there, though, as the Nationals worked counts, driving Kenta Maeda’s pitch count up.

Playoff Prospectus: NLDS Preview: Nationals vs. Dodgers

Craig Goldstein

The battle of the best rookies in the NL kicks off in DC.

The battle for coastal supremacy will pit the two best rookies in the National League against each other, not to mention two of the best pitchers in the game right now. It’s hard to fathom that so many storylines could fit in one series and not focus on Bryce Harper, and yet he was neither the most dynamic (Trea Turner) nor the best (Daniel Murphy) player on his team this year. The Dodgers needed every ounce of their depth to arrive in the playoffs, burning through [checks notes] 41 starting pitchers this season. Hey, it was plausible for a minute, right? Fine, whatever. Let’s be real, this is a contest to decide who can lose to the Best Team In Baseball Cubs or the Even Year Bullsh*t Giants, anyway, right?

Wondering who to invest in? We got you covered.

The Wildcard round is in the books. The Division Series loom. And fans of 22 teams sit at home, wondering who they can squint at and see something recognizable as their own. Who are your angels in the outfield? Who’s your ace on the mound? Who will keep the darkness at bay? Don’t worry; we’re here to tell you.

A look at fandom and growing up.

When you cover sports, part of the process is becoming detached, at least somewhat, from the team that you grew up devoted to. It sneaks up on you. It’s partly intentional, because even if it’s not always unseemly to be caught giving a full-throated cheer for your favorite team, it can leave you open to accusations of bias.

On this year's AL Cy Young favorite.

Read the full article...

As it stands, the 20-year-old rookie Julio Urias is one of the Dodgers' four best starters, on paper. October isn't any other day, though, and the strains of a long season complicate the Dodgers' decision.

The Dodgers received a major shot in the arm for their rotation with the return of the best pitcher in baseball. The question is what it means for the rest of their rotation, where the name Manager Dave Roberts could write in most consistently was “TBD.” Rich Hill is healthy for now, and Kenta Maeda has appeared to benefit from the frequent extra day(s) of rest he receives, but beyond that the rotation is a slurry of rookies (both heralded and not), journeymen, and guys working back from injury. This leaves the Dodgers with something of a conundrum on their hands. While they’ve extended their division lead to three games, they still have enough contests against the second-place Giants to be concerned with putting their best team on the field each day. Julio Urias has been one of their best pitchers since his promotion, but he’s bumping up against an impending innings limit, and the Dodgers will have to reckon with how they’re going to address the dual imperatives of making sure Urias can fill a rotation spot for most of next season and beyond, and for maximizing their playoff and World Series chances in 2016. So, do you mess with success? Or do you risk injury either now or down the line?
