Ohtani is and should be the top priority, followed by Yamamoto.
They need to acquire at least two starting pitchers, preferably one front line. Buehler and Miller are the only locks for the rotation.
Pepiot might be a good trade chip. A regression to the mean is in order, and the Dodgers have a surplus of young righties.
I like Sheehan the most out of the young starters (outside of Miller, of course). I think the rest are expendable given the right deal.
Is it finally time to move Busch and/or Vargas? It’s hard to gauge how much trade value they even have.
I don’t see how a team can survive defensively with Lux and Muncy manning the left side of your infield. Do the Dodgers grab a shortstop? Is there even a capable shortstop available? What do you do with Lux? His best position is second, but that’s Mookie’s position now. Does Gavin become a trade chip?
If the Dodgers like Vargas as much as they say, they’d give him the left field job, but I think it’s just posturing. In which case, I’d like to see the Dodgers go outside the org for a starting left fielder. Hopefully, they can do a little better than David Peralta this offseason.
what i like in a brewery:
1. cozy, not industrial
2. outdoor space with plants, string lights, and a mural or two
4. no kitchens, only food trucks. i don’t want the obligation of buying a meal with my beer
5. games, yard and tabletop (especially the latter)
6. music that isn’t too loud
7. bike racks
8. no televisions
The best brewery setting I’ve ever been to is Saint Paul Brewing in Saint Paul, Minnesota. In the short time I was in Minnesota, I went to Saint Paul Brewing three times. It has great outdoor seating with no obligation to buy food. Ironically enough, we ended up eating every time we went because the food was so good and ordering was easy and convenient (mobile ordering).
Pens and notebooks are the tools of my trade. Finding stationery with the exact qualities I covet can be difficult.
- The best type of pen is the pen that makes you want to write.
- I like grid paper. Blank paper is too intimidating. Lined paper is too restrictive.
- The crinkle of used Tomoe River Paper is one of the best sensations in the world.
- I want to like fountain pens, but I find them too fussy.
- There are too many great notebooks and not enough time or use cases for them.
Some planners and journals:
I have opinions on the ever-so-popular fruit.
🧀 Apples with cheese is an underrated combo.
🥪 Apple slices are an underrated sandwich ingredient.
🍎 Red Delicious is the worst popular apple variety.
🥧 Dutch apple pie is the best apple-centric dish.
🌱 Most apples aren’t true to seed. The apple variety that grows out of the seed won’t necessarily be the same as the variety from which the seed originated.
🥛 Vermont has a law in place that stipulates when serving apple pie, one must make a good-faith effort to provide either a cold glass of milk, a slice of cheddar cheese, or a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.
🎨 The US government commissioned these dope watercolor illustrations at the turn of the century.
📒 Field Notes made beautiful harvest-themed notebooks that feature an apple illustration.
