    I'll kick this thread off with great news for Cardinal fans, but bad news for Trout:

    Dexter Fowler traded from STL to the Angels. The Cardinals had to eat almost the whole contract to find anyone willing to take this jerk. And of course MLB ass-kissers say it "solidifies" LA's OF which is of course laughable. It give the Angels a "black" hole in the lineup and this jerk was signed by STL to play CF then they found out he sucks and isn't capable so they had to move him to RF. Also, many say STL signed him because at the time they were getting a lot of heat for not having any blacks on the roster, so he was awarded a huge contract.

    ANAHEIM -- The Angels solidified their outfield on Thursday, trading for Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The Cardinals are also sending the Halos $12.75 million as part of the deal, so the Angels are on the hook for only $1.75 million of Fowler's salary in 2021.

    yep his room brightening smile got him an $85 million contract:

    "I think there's a couple things we really liked, and No. 1, the guy," Angels general manager Perry Minasian said. "It's an outstanding human being. It's a high-energy player, which over a 162-game season is really important. And this guy brings that smile, that energy on a daily basis and we still think he can play. We think there's a lot left in the tank. He had a down year last year and he's the first one to tell you that. But the homework we've done. He's put a ton of work in this offseason."

    not to worry, Fowler will be released by mid June, just lip service as baseball exposes weaknesses in a ruthless manner

    Fowler is a below average ball player - He hit .300 once and that was playing his home games in Coors field. He's 34 years old and has never been anything more than average at best and mediocre most of the time. Looking forward to baseball coming back - last year was a cheap joke - half a season due to a "pandemic".

    Yeah actually sounds like a great trade from Angels view. Cardinals are still on the hook for 90 percent of this bums salary and as @wokewhite232 said he'll like be cut.

    Another trade passing two mediocre non-whites between teams. At least the Rangers acquired a potential starting catcher in Jonah Heim. Khris Davis is no doubt and HGH user - 5'11" 205 lb players don't just jump from 27 HRs to 42 the next season especially when being a sub .250 hitter for his career. Andrus has been an average offensive player during his whole career but a good defensive player - it's ok to be "latino" and be a liability offensively as long as the defense is there.

    Rangers acquired C Jonah Heim, DH Khris Davis and RHP Dane Acker from the Athletics for SS Elvis Andrus, C Aramis Garcia and cash considerations.

    Heim was overshadowed by fellow catching prospect Sean Murphy in Oakland, but will get an opportunity to establish himself as an everyday option at the major-league level in Texas. The 25-year-old switch-hitting backstop registered a pedestrian .211/.268/.211 batting line across 41 plate appearances in 13 games at the major-league level last season. He posted an impressive .310/.385/.477 triple-slash line with nine round-trippers across 327 plate appearances between Double-A and Triple-A back in 2019. He'll compete with Jose Trevino for the Rangers' starting catching job this spring. Fantasy managers in deeper mixed leagues should keep him on their radar screens.

    Lol whatever I guess we just keep losing since no one has enough cajones to say enough is enough?! Can't expect people of high profile to stand tough, how can the average Joe.

    Just like everything else - each of these teams is mandated by their handler - the MLB to adhere to the anti-white viewpoint being pushed. Just like every globohomo million/billion dollar corporation has a full out anti-white communist HR department to push the anti-white agenda. I could care less about this guy getting canned as the Mariners have not been a real white friendly organization.

    On a side not I am getting my notes together for the 2021 season. I'll probably be waiting until early March to get my MLB preview written up - it just doesn't feel right to post it before Spring Training starts.

    He made comments on a Japanese player's poor attempts at learning English, made a similar comment about a latino ballplayer's English and another remark about keeping a promising prospect (who is white) in the minors early in the season so the Mariners don't have to fulfill contractual obligations (pretty sure this is a fairly common practice in the MLB). So yes totally tame in a non-pussified society. Here is the story from BSPN. This Jeff Passan guy seems like a real SJW Beta type:

    Dexter Fowler had 3 good seasons from 2015 to 2017. I give Fowler a 25% chance of hitting over .250 with 15 or more HR in 2021. But most likely he will struggle with another weak season at the plate. As mentioned above, the Angels are paying him only $1.75 million, so it's not much of a risk on their part.
