For as much focus as the Dodgers’ payroll receives, their farm system is among the strongest in the game, something that has little to do with their financial advantages. They built that pipeline without the luxury of picking high in the draft and instead have done it through astute scouting and coaching.

We weren’t the only ones surprised by the Kings late outburst.
The Chicago Sun-Times wrote, “The Hawks had been 42-0-0 when leading after two periods, dating all the way back to the start of the last season. The last team they coughed up such a lead and lost? Game 7 of the Western Conference final in 2014, against these same Kings.”
Gaborik with the OT winner!
Carter and Gaborik tie it at two
2-0 after 2 periods
“Yes, Jason Heyward. He’s my top free-agent target for the Dodgers — even ahead of guys like Greinke, David Price and Johnny Cueto. Heyward is a difference-making player who would help stabilize the Dodger outfield. Let’s take a deeper look at him.
The first thing that should stand out is his age. He turned 26 in August. Guys who are entering their age-26 seasons don’t hit the open market with regularity — especially those who are as good as Heyward is. He’s coming off a 6-win season (the second of his career) and has been worth more than 4.5 wins per season in his young career.
Secondly, he’s an elite defender. He’s the best right fielder in baseball by a wide margin…”
It, also, would have the added bonus of taking someone off the Cardinals roster.
I hope everyone who ends up covering Kane remembers to follow him out and across the blueline when he circles back in the offensive zone, the way Regehr used to.
