Blog Kiosk: 2/10/2020 - Dodgers Links & News - So is the Deal Done Now?

After much hand wringing, the trade initially reported last week is in its final stages and it's a bit different than what we were originally told. Sure, it's not exactly the lopsided transaction we heard about, but it's still an extremely good deal for the Dodgers. Not only do we get Betts and Price, but the "live-arm" reliever thought to be going to Boston is actually going to be a Dodger -- Brusdar Graterol. Below is the rundown, via Do-Hyoung Park at
Dodgers get: RHP Brusdar Graterol, OF Luke Raley, 67th pick in 2020 Draft
Twins get: RHP Kenta Maeda, Minor Leaguer, cash 
Red Sox get: OF Alex Verdugo, SS Jeter Downs, C Connor Wong
Dodgers get: OF Mookie Betts, LHP David Price, cash
On another note, the reported trade between the Dodgers and Angels also fell apart. So for now, Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling are still Dodgers. I don't expect that to remain the case. Below are more links to check out:

  • Justin Turner was a bit peeved over the weekend, via his tweet:

“What we saw through our study was that at the end of the day, because of the lack of coaches in underserved communities, because of the lack of funds to actually play the game, the lack of fields, there was so many reasons why kids weren't playing,” she continues. “We developed Dodgers RBI as a direct response to those particular challenges. Over the last six years, we can proudly say we've curated a program that gives kids an opportunity to participate in the sport but participate in the sport to gain social and emotional skills that we really believe can be derived from playing sports. The idea is that if we create adequate quality facilities, if we train coaches, if we give you the equipment, the uniforms and everything you need to play, and in addition to that we provide you with education resources, and health resources, we're helping with engagement. We're helping kids develop those key skills like teamwork, and they have an opportunity to thrive.”
