    In accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club was allotted $2.9 million to spend on the international market during the signing period that began last July 2.
    This year’s international signing period…all clubs won’t have the same amount to spend. Those number have changed according to each team’s record in 2012, with the pools ranging from just under $4.25 million for the Astros, who had the Majors’ lowest winning percentage, to just under $1.15 million for the Nationals, who had the highest..clubs are allowed to trade pool money.
    Like last year, there are exemptions. Clubs can sign six players for bonuses of $50,000 or less, and those do not count against the allotment. All bonuses of $10,000 or less are also exempt.
    Dodgers have $1,412,900

    Tigers DFA “proven closer” Jose Valverde. Apparently for very excellent reasons.

    Please remove all communications devices from Ned Colletti. Yes, Ned, we realize the bullpen by and large sucks. But let’s don’t make it worse, even if a “proven (35-year-old) closer” is now available.

    And sorry, Tink. I seem to have stopped your commenting for the cycle.

          Good to hear from you again. Yes, I might call him Aussie Pete to replace the old Aussie Trent !
          Not sure if you saw, but I was telling everyone how excited I was about opening day/s next year in Australia!

    Now I see Isotopes are in Omaha tonight but back in NM tomorrow, so the Dodgers most likely never intended to have SVS play tonight in AAA in spite of stories on their web-site that said he would begin a rehab Friday.

    Totally off topic but my 5 year old says. oh look daddy Kershaw is pitching he is our best pitcher..and he says who is our 2nd best. I say Greinke.and he says oh i know why they call him Greinke-it’s cause he is angr-y all the time

    Our ace is off.

    The offense must score at least 5 runs.

    Silver Lining Dept: It doesn’t look like the bullpen will blow it for the Kid today.

    So Stauffer might get a win out of this, even though he didn’t go 5 and Richard didn’t face a single batter?

      I’m not sure about the exact rule, but it’s my understanding that when the starter doesn’t go 5, the official scorer has discretion on who gets the win.

    Come on Yasiel

    Well, we did avoid the dreaded bases loaded situation.

    The Dodgers often can’t turn a DP, but they can sure hit into them!

  21. I repeat, rats.

    The Dodgers are at a HUGE disadvantage — they don’t get to bat against their own bullpen or defense.

    I just got home after umpiring a youth baseball post-season doubleheader. At least Puig has two more hits.

      Silver Lining Dept.: we’re almost halfway to the end of this sad season.
      My head says continuing to follow them borders on masochism — but my heart is loyal and I DO believe they can start performing to their potential.

    • Fortunately for me, I have none.

    As I’m sure Vin will soon be reminding us, the Dodgers have never come from 10 games back to win.

    I thought Wonderama was an east coast phenomenon. I got tickets to the show when I was about 5 and Bob Mcaliister even sat next to me during introductions to Guess Your Best. I still remember that the more you fingel, the less you heimer.
