Jesus, the effing Dodgers.

I'm gonna have to start hating them.

Yeah, start.
Dodgers, catcher Will Smith agree to 10-year, $140M extension

Catcher Will Smith and the Dodgers signed a 10-year, $140 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, the latest deal in an offseason of massive spending by a Los Angeles team that is locking up its core members....

The $140 million is the third-highest guarantee ever for a catcher, behind Joe Mauer's eight-year, $184 million contract with Minnesota and Buster Posey's nine-year, $167 million deal with San Francisco. The deal, negotiated by Apex Baseball, includes a $30 million signing bonus -- to be paid in two installments by January 2025 -- and around 30% of the remaining salary deferred, sources said....

Smith's extension follows the 10-year, $700 million deal signed by Ohtani this winter, as well as Yoshinobu Yamamoto's 12-year, $325 million contract, Tyler Glasnow's five-year, $137.5 million extension and a one-year, $23.5 million pact for outfielder Teoscar Hernandez.

Altogether, the Dodgers have committed more than $1.35 billion in future salaries this winter....
:roll: :obscene-birdiered:

How large is the Cubs' commitment?

A pittance by comparison. Honestly, don't see how the Dodgers are sustainable.

Ouch, very rare occasion where a ground rule double hurts the batting team, one run denied in a tie game in the 7th.

Orioles kicked Angel ass 10-2 :clap:

Rough opener.

Lose your ace, blow the game.

That was exciting, sorry. Their bases loaded was better than yours.

Ten feet to the right and it wouldn't have been.

I found the missing fans:
A's fans protest move by watching opener in parking lot

Thousands of Athletics fans gathered in the Coliseum's south parking lot before Thursday night's Opening Day game against the Cleveland Guardians to try out a new way of displaying their displeasure with the team's ownership: showing up but staying away.
"Thousands" :thumbup:
In what might be the beginning of the team's final season in Oakland, fans waved hundreds of "SELL" flags, ate free tacos and listened to live music. What most of them didn't do was enter the stadium to watch the game, choosing to continue the party through the night by watching the game on a blowup projection screen. The announced crowd for the game -- 13,522....

The fans partied on the cracked asphalt of the Coliseum parking lot, in the shadows of the crumbling bleachers once rolled into the stadium for Raiders football games. The longest line was for the tent manned by members of Schools Over Stadiums, a political action committee of the Nevada State Education Association, which is attempting to stop the allocation of $380 million in public funding to help A's owner John Fisher pay for a new ballpark on the Las Vegas Strip.

Nick Danoff, an Oakland resident volunteering for Schools Over Stadiums, worked the crowd, handing out cards showing fans how to donate to the effort to put the issue in front of Nevada voters. An anonymous donor agreed to a one-day match of up to $100,000....

Brilliant. Even baseball fans do strong political action in the East Bay.

You'd think the Padres had won the Series by all the whoopdedoo over an opener win. After the experience of last years star-studded team going down before the playoffs, it's clear that at least in some baseball fans, hope rises eternal. Maybe this is what it's like to be a Cubbie fan?
