Getting this one started:

A hometown boy comes home--that would be utility infielder Greg Garcia. Garcia was claimed off waivers by the Padres, from the Cardinals. Smile

And a Dodger legend is re-signed--CK will be back for three years. By the time that's up, I would imagine he'd be ready to retire, after a 14-year career.

Yes, I am hopeful that Greg will do well for his hometown team!

I assume you are happy with the Kershaw news.

Length of the contract is just right at three years. He'll be 31 on Opening Day next season, and while his best years are still behind him, as I was telling another fan--Walker Buehler is going to eventually assume role of ace, and having CK there to guide him along can only be a good thing, while still contributing to a solid rotation.

He should retire after having pitched his entire career in Dodger Blue.

It should be interesting to see where Bryce lands since he rejected the Nationals offer.

It was good while it lasted, but Christian Villanueva has been designated for assignment by the Padres. He will now head to Japan to play for the Yomiuri Giants. Article from padres.com

Even as a fan of the opposition, I found Villanueva to be intriguing to watch when he was on his game.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers have released two relievers, RHP Erik Goeddels and LHP Zac Rosscup--details from dodgers.com.

Also, catcher Ryan McCann will return to Atlanta, having signed a one-year deal with the Braves.

I've noticed that Garrett Richards announced via Twitter that he's now a Padre. Well, how do you like that? Meanwhile, the Angels have acquired infielder Tommy LaStella from the Cubs.

LHP Patrick Corbin has signed with the Nationals for six years, pending a physical.

I am tired of hearing about where Bryce and Manny will end up. Let these meetings get going already.

And the Cardinals land a big one--first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who was traded to St. Louis.

And thankfully he is now OUT of the National League West! Exclamation Exclamation
