Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig and Alex Wood have been traded to the Cincinnati Reds, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Homer Bailey is one of the players going back to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The return for the Dodgers clearly will be more.

This clears about
40 (actually around 17-20) million dollars in payroll for the Dodgers. Honestly this is a terrible trade if it doesn’t end up with Bryce Harper in Los Angeles. Otherwise I am truly done with the Andrew Friedman regime. We’ll have more on this later when I’m not at work. What a stupid trade. (Unless the Dodgers sign Harper)
