I think LA did great on that deal.

By: Torpedoman

In the salary discussion, LA knocked off $17.5M from their 2019 lux tax payroll. They needed to deal with their OF surplus to improve roster flexability. They were done with Alex Wood (currently injured in Cincy), They've struggled trying to get Puig out of the org. Farmer was probably our 7th catcher. They coveted both Jos. Gray and especially Jeter Downs, both of whom they intend to keep. Downs is our #7 and Gray #18 org prospects. Kemp was 'done' at the AS break last season and was going to get bought out unless they could fashion a deal, so the Bailey deal worked for them.
