A bit of good news... and this is not an April Fools Day joke. A deal has been reached for Direct TV to carry the Dodgers station, SportsNet LA. It’s already broadcasting on Channel 690 this morning.

A great deal for all you SoCal folk--you can now watch what isn't.

I'm actually really happy about this. I've been streaming my Dodger games online because there was no other way to get them, but I've always been very willing to pay for these games if they were made available through a legitimate source. I already have DirecTV, so it's a win for me.

Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully hospitalized after fall and is 'resting comfortably'

“I won’t be doing anymore head-first sliding; I never liked it,” Scully said in the statement released by the Dodgers.

Man, I saw Vin pop up in the news feed and I immediately feared the worst.

F 2020.

I have DirecTV and have enjoyed some of the classic Dodger games they have shown. Watched game 6 of the 1981 World Series when the Dodgers beat the Yankees to win it all. They also showed Valenzuela pitching the final game of the 1981 NLCS and Hershiser in game 7 of the 1988 NLCS. It’s fun to watch winners every night too.

They showed another playoff win but that was from a Dodger team that didn’t do much in the postseason so I skipped that one. I only watch champions these days.

Vin Scully was released from the hospital and is said to be home and comfortable. Let's hope this wasn't anything major, but I always worry when an old person suffers a fall.

Is it finally time to resurrect this thread?

Under normal circumstances, this sucker would probably already be a 30+ pages by now.

Sounds like everything is a go for opening day either July 23rd or the 24th. Fingers crossed there are no crazy spikes and things run as smooth as they possibly can.

I read it’s 40 games within the division and the remaining 20 will be inter league with your geographical counterparts (so definitely the Angels, A’s and Mariners....wonder if we’ll get the Trashtros as well). Universal DH as well which helps us get another bat in the lineup.

60 games is not ideal, but F it...I just want baseball. The summer just doesn’t feel the same without it. And hey, at least we get to see Mookie actually play a meaningful game in a dodger uni

Yes, 60 games: 40 within the NL West (10 games each vs. each team), and 20 against the AL West (5 games each vs. each team, which includes the Astros).

It appears that the free agent market this winter is going to take a major hit because of the decreased revenues and there could also be issues with next season as it relates to COVID-19, not to mention the possibility of more labor unrest. So perhaps Betts will choose to take a short-term deal, perhaps even one year, because there just may not be a team willing to pay megabucks this winter. We'll see what that means later.

With spring training being shorter now, I'm guessing you're going to see a lot of short starts at the beginning of the season. And with bigger rosters at the start of the season, there should be more pitchers on the big league roster, allowing teams to mix and match a bit easier during the course of a typical week, let's say.

Geez 60 games sucks ballz, a common or low grade injury can cost a guy a quarter of the season lol. Kersh want be can't afford his annual month long injury list hiatus or basically that's it for his 2020 campaign.

Also we lose the ASG as soon as the stadium is refurbed and spruced up to host after nearly 40 years.

I'm guessing his issues were always more than just "anxiety" issues. I hope he gets the help that he needs, and that the Dodgers provide it. Sadly, if he is dealing with the mental issues that I suspect he's dealing with, these situations never seem to end well. Such a shame.

Damn, not even a single start from him, better safe than sorry as this was no easy decision to forfeit his prorated $11.8m salary for 2020.

Looking at our starting rotation as of now after losing our no. 3....

Kershaw (L)
Buehler (R)
Urias (L)*
Wood (L)*
May (R)*
*Gonsolin, Stripling, Nelson if necessary

Yep, our starting depth is pretty weak imo....so we gonna lament the Ryu, Hill and Maeda departures?

Stripling will likely move into the starting rotation, at least initially. Keep in mind that the starts are likely to be quite short for a while, so you'll probably see a lot of Gonsolin and May piggybacking.
