Dodgers trade Gonzalez, Kazmir, McCarthy and Culberson to Atlanta for Matt Kemp

"Lifting the no-trade clause is the hardest decision I have ever made in my career due to the fact I loved every single second being a Dodger", Gonzalez wrote. The move could allow the Dodgers to get underneath the $197-million luxury-tax threshold in 2018 while maintaining flexibility for next winter, when Clayton Kershaw could join a star-studded class of free agents that includes Bryce Harper.

Matt Kemp is heading back to Los Angeles and the path is officially cleared for superstar prospect Ronald Acuña after the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers completed an expensive five-player blockbuster. Ten pitchers started games past year even as they enjoyed a relatively smooth 104-win season.

Bears Rookie TE Adam Shaheen Inactive Against Lions
Fans on social media were particularly irked when the Bears , facing a 4th-and-1 at midfield in the first half, opted to punt. Thanks to two field goals and a touchdown in the first half, the Lions are nearly there and had a 13-3 lead at halftime.

McCarthy, 34, signed a four-year deal with the Dodgers in December 2014 and in his three seasons with Los Angeles, went 11-7 with a 4.51 ERA in 29 starts. He hit his 1,500th career double and became the first Braves player to have a three home run game since 2008.

Even after dealing Kazmir - who will make $16 million in 2018 - and McCarthy ($10 million) the Dodgers are still long on starting pitching. They can roll the dice on adding Kazmir and McCarthy to their 2018 rotation in the hopes that either or both have a bounce-back campaign, which will give the Braves a chance to move them midseason for farm system pieces.

Ashish Jha told Stat News, the decision to censor the seven words will likely force staff to self-censor their work. "HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions".

Gonzalez, 35, was acquired by the Dodgers from the Boston Red Sox in August 2012 and was instrumental in helping Los Angeles win five straight National League West Division titles. Gonzalez was designated for assignment.

This trade represents completely different philosophies for the Braves and the Dodgers. With the Miami Marlins headed for a awful 2018 campaign the Braves can, at the very least, show their fanbase that not only are they no longer the worst team in the National League East, but that their future is brighter than it has been in a long time.
