Kershaw may be on the block at this point.

Look at the kind of money he'd be walking away from. I don't think there is any way the Brewers would be in the bidding.

He's got Cubs written all over him.

I'm rooting for Kershaw to become a free agent because it would increase the Brewers extremely slight chance to get Patrick Corbin.

I'm thinking Rangers. Kershaw is a Texas guy. Go back home and get huge money, and be part of the Rangers rebuild.... Maybe

I could be in the biggest market in the world and I wouldn't touch Kershaw with a 10 foot pole. He's lost over 2.5 MPH off his fastball over the last two seasons. He's only averaged 162 innings over the last three seasons. When looking at his individual pitches, only his slider plays up at this time and that's bad news for a pitcher entering his 30s. And when he's hit the DL over the last few years, it hasn't been due to hamstring problems. Back and biceps issues. The ERA, FIP, WHIP are all still eye-popping and look great, but there are red flags all over this guy when one takes a look past the stats on paper.

No question he will opt out, if nothing else to get a longer commitment from the Dodgers. As of now the Dodgers would have him under contract for 2 more years at about 70 million. Certainly he should think he'll get way more than 70 million even if it's spread over a longer term. I'm thinking he can probably turn this into a 4 year, 136 million dollar extension from somebody, most likely the Dodgers.

If he opts out it's only to re-sign with the Dodgers for more total $. The only way that doesn't happen is if his ask is truly ridiculous.

Yea I'd guess they work out a compromise and tack on an extra couple of years for him at similar yearly or a bit less.

Kershaw would be foolish to leave Dodger stadium at this point in his career.

I am not a gambler, but I enjoy looking over the MLB free agent odds at the start of the off-season. Below are the current Bovada odds for three of the starting pitchers on the market (odds are for which team they will begin next season with).

PATRICK CORBIN
New York Yankees: -190
Arizona Diamondbacks: +300
Milwaukee Brewers: +850
Seattle Mariners: +850
Washington Nationals: +850
Los Angeles Angels: +1100


CLAYTON KERSHAW
Los Angeles Dodgers: -150
Houston Astros: +375
Texas Rangers: +375
Chicago Cubs: +800
San Francisco Giants: +800
New York Yankees: +850
Cincinnati Reds: +1600


DALLAS KEUCHEL
Houston Astros: +230
Los Angles Angels: +230
New York Yankees: +230
Los Angeles Dodgers: +650
Philadelphia Phillies: +650
San Francisco Giants: +650

Kershaw will opt out if he isn't given a new contract. Otherwise, he's leaving $150M or more on the table if he doesn't.

I'm guessing that right now Kershaw is looking at the Dodgers and saying, "Want to keep me off the market? $35M per year, 7 years."

The Dodgers are probably trying to get it down to six years instead of seven. Or maybe shave off a few million bucks here and there.

If the Dodgers let him hit FA, then someone will give him a monster deal. Maybe it won't be $35M and 7 years - but it will still be $200M+.

Whomever pays Kershaw will regret it in a couple of years for sure. I hear the Cubs could use a starter?

Unless it's the Cardinals. If that is the case, he is the NL Cy Young the next 5 years.

Very few things would make me happier this offseason than if Kershaw signed for 6/190 with the cubs.

I'm surprised at the Kershaw deal. I thought he's get a 6-7 year deal with the Dodgers. Getting the biggest deal obviously wasn't his primary concern. Still, I think he could have done 6 years with an opt out in 3 years - $30M+.

Dodgers should be thrilled they aren't on the hook for such big money on a guy who goes into his mid/late 30s.

From MLB Trade Rumors regarding the Brewers interest in J.A. Happ...

Speaking of Happ, the veteran left-hander is generating a lot of buzz in free agency. In addition to the Phillies, the Angels, Astros, and Brewers are new teams who Morosi adds to the already-lengthy list of clubs (the Blue Jays, Reds, Twins, White Sox, and Yankees) who have previously been rumored to have some level of interest in Happ’s services. Of the newly-cited teams, Milwaukee and Houston offer Happ the best chance of competing for a World Series in 2019, while the Angels and Phillies are a few steps behind at this point of the offseason, though obviously L.A. and Philadelphia each have designs on significant roster upgrades this winter.

Happ just turned 36 and sounds like he’s looking for a 3 year deal

Wouldn’t want to invest in him for those ages

Happ might make sense if he wants to play for a contender and will take a reasonable 1-2 year deal as a result, but otherwise no thanks.

I sure hope this is just kicking the tires with Happ as we reportedly look into everything. If this was our big offseason splash I would be pretty disappointed. Rather resign Miley.
