I mean, other than finding out that Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Alex Wood and Kyle Farmer are each carrying around some sort of communicable brain-melting virus, I can't think of any reason why Dick Williams and Nick Krall would say no.

The Los Angeles Dodgers traded some big names and opened up some salary cap space in a blockbuster seven-player deal between the Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds on Friday.

The Dodgers, in the meantime, will receive pitcher Homer Bailey and two prospects as of right now.

In return, the Dodgers took on the bloated contract of struggling right-hander Homer Bailey, who will be subsequently released, and acquired two prospects in middle infielder Jeter Downs and right-hander Josiah Gray.

"I think if you look back over last few years, a hallmark of our teams has been depth on our roster", said Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers' president of baseball operations. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates; San Diego Padres; San Francisco Giants; St. Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals. He went 1-14 last season with a 6.09 ERA. He was an all-star for the Dodgers in 2017, going 16-3 with a 2.72 ERA.

Wood went 9-7 with a 3.68 ERA in 27 starts and six relief appearances last season for the Dodgers, who lost to the Boston Red Sox in the World Series.

Kemp, 34, batted.290 with 25 doubles, 21 homers and 85 RBIs last season, when he was an All-Star for the third time.
