MLB: NLDS-Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

It’s almost time, friends. It’s almost time to get your daily popping of mitts, pitchers calmly and collectedly walking over hurdles, and equipment bags shown in the foreground of a picture that displays green grass and bright sunshine. It’s spring training. It’s here and it’s glorious.

  • After fits and starts, Mookie Betts is finally headed to Los Angeles along with David Price. This time, it’s even worse in exchange for the previously mentioned Alex Verdugo and Jeter Downs and Connor Wong.

Not only that, but the prospect that was supposed to go to Boston in the originally reported deal, Brusdar Graterol? Yeah, he’s going to Los Angeles in exchange for Kenta Maeda. You have to at least admire the Dodgers for what they’ve done.

  • You know who’s not happy about all this? Possibly Joc Pederson. Why? Well, turns out he’s not going to the Angels after all!
