I don't like the Dodgers but you have to respect and admire the way they have been playing. I mean, wow, this team is something historic. I got tired of the parity bs, let's see some 100-game winners!

Apparently the Giants moved up Bumgarner for tonights game which thickens the plot if there is a plot given the amount of damage the Dodgers have done in the standings.

"7:29pm: The Tigers are expected to make a trade involving lefty Justin Wilson this evening, sources tell MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand." Just where the southpaw might be headed isn’t yet clear, however.

"7:58pm: There’s active bidding between the Cubs and Dodgers, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today."

C'mon F & F. Make it happen.

Go Dodgers.

ETA - "9:25pm: The Cubs, Dodgers, Astros, and Nationals are the four teams still vying to acquire Wilson, according to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press."

"The Cubs are finalizing a deal to acquire two more pieces for the stretch run. If the swap is finalized, both southpaw reliever Justin Wilson and catcher Alex Avila will reportedly head from the Tigers to Chicago in exchange for infielder Jeimer Candelario and young shortstop Isaac Paredes, along with cash or a player to be named later."

Hate to see the Cubbies get stronger. The LAD have scouted many other lefties, and will make a deal if they don't have to overpay.

Anything can happen in the post season but I've never seen a Dodgers team like this since I started watching in 1992.

Heck I have been following them since they moved to Ca in 1958 and to a slight degree even before that when I was a kid. Probably one of the few girls that followed baseball when they were teens and younger. In fact hubby says he fell for me cause I was the only girl he had ever met that followed sports and loved to cook. Anyway, this year is probably better even going back to the 1960s when they were so unbelievable. Then know how to make an old lady feel young again.

The Dodgers lost out on Wilson, but maybe they can pick up Brad Hand. He won't be a FA until 2020. Just over two hours left. Go Dodgers.

Got two lefties and Yu Darvish. Front office did everything they can to address needs for the ball club. Really didn't give up much IMO either outside of Willie Calhoun and who knows if he even gets a chance with guys like Taylor on the team now.

And IMO, they got Darvish on the cheap!! I am loving this trade because we still keep our top two prospects in Alex Verdugo and Walker Beuhler.

Wow. Still digesting all of this. Never expected the Dodgers to get Darvish, since the Rangers had asked for our top two prospects. In return Texas received our #17 and #27 prospects, plus Calhoun, who probably would never have had any success in the NL, as he has no speed, is expected to add even more weight, and is "barely passable" on defense. He would be a good fit as a DH in the AL.

I agree with the naysayers, in that Darvish will most likely not be signed by the Dodgers in 2018, for a variety of reasons. However, his value in the playoffs can not be underestimated, as he will take a load off of CK.

The other two - Watson and Cingrani - could work their way into the best bullpen in baseball. At least they didn't cost very much, and I wish SVS well with the Reds.
