    Fuck the Yankees, fuck baseball with its non-salary cap rules.

    At least the Jays get fucked over also, seeing as they'll never win the AL East while that duo is in the heart of the Yankees order...

    Yankees could possibly be making a move for Manny Machado.

    Rangers are expressing interest in Zack Grienke. Rangers are NOT a team in his no-trade clause.

    Reds listening to offers for Billy Hamilton, but no movement.

    Talks of Santana or JD Martinez heading to Boston are heating up in the wake of Stanton deal.

    Baseball is going to be hella interesting in 2018 and I LOVE IT!!!

    Dervish is asking people about the Twins, mainly Chris Gimenez who,was his personal catcher in Texas. It’d be a big tone shift, that is desperately needed.

    I’d be surprised if the Dodgers brought him back. High payroll and their searching for bats. Twins would be huge for Darvish and most likely keep them in the AL hunt. Unfortunately for them, it will mean nothing come October.

    Twins sign Michael Pineda to a two year deal. I like the signing, but we need at least one more starter, and a bullpen arm or two.

    Looks like he'll miss most of the year recovering from Tommy John.

    True, but hopefully he could be ready by August/September to provide aide.

    Marcell Ozuna traded to the Cardinals. Not sure who was dealt to Miami, but I imagine pitching prospects.

    Love the move, think this will pay off more than the Stanton trade and am relieved a bit that it's gone this way.

    Well, Minnesota is saved. Fernando Rodney coming to the Twin Cities!

    Honestly... I didn't know he was still pitching. Oh well, bullpen arms are welcome.

    I don't mind it. Especially if they add another arm. 1.19 WHIP last year. 65 Ks in 55 innings. That seems to be a bit of an aberration. I would expect him to have a WHIP around 1.35

    Hope the Twins are stocking up on pine tar for him.

    Quote from Dick Williams, GM of Reds...

    "We will sign relievers in January, when they don't cost 15 million for 2 years."

    Well... he didn't say that exactly, but you get the drift.

    Welcome back Matt Kemp

    Matt Kemp back to LA for Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon McCarthy, Scott Kazmir and Charlie Culberson. Interesting trading away 3 bad contracts for 1 bad contract. A-Gon has already been DFA'd by ATL.

    Don't hate the player hate the game.

    The Yankees re-signed CC and even if they land Machado they'll STILL be under the luxury tax threshold.

    I didn't want to seem like I was bragging about the pickups that will win the Mets a World Series. It wouldn't be becoming of a POTTY contender.

    It sounds like the Yankees are in talks for Gerritt Cole. I’m not sure you have the prospects to get both.

    If New York offered Clint Frazier for Gerritt Cole, Pittsburgh would be dumb to decline. That said, unless NY is trying to run the table for 2 years and say fuck the future, they would be dumb to trade Frazier. Their pitching is not that bad.

    I'm going to have a tough time seeing Longoria in a Giants uniform. He WAS the Rays to me. Unlucky @Torn.

    On the other hand he always was a Jay killer so I'm glad to see him gone from the division.

    Agree, hes not even close to what he once was.

    Orioles threatening to pull Machado off the market. Apparently they are not getting the offers they want. Should be noted that they will not allow the new team to negotiate a contract extension with him prior to trading.

    Giants are reaching to be a contender in a division where they can not contend with the roster they have and the moves their failing to make. The Longoria trace felt like a desperate attempt to bring in a star player to sell tickets and drive power. It won’t work. And they’re sacrificing their future in the effort.

    Giants are going the way of the Phillies and Tigers for sure. Ageing team on expensive deals. This was a 64 win team last year! The Rays had 80..

    Longoria was THE cornerstone of our franchise but it's undeniable he's on a downward trajectory and what once was arguably the best contract in baseball is heavily backloaded into his mid 30s. This is purely about salary and sadly the deal is happening now because in 2 years time the $53 million left on his contract is gonna be very hard to shift.

    Is anyone actually happy with this one? We lose the most iconic and beloved player in franchise history for what I would consider not much in return (including taking on Denard fkn Span's shitty albeit soon to expire contract) and the Giants fans are unhappy about trading for an ageing player in decline

    Let's see what's next for Archer/Colome/Kiermaier

    Wow it must be tough when .Evan Longoria is your 'Franchise'

    i wonder if folks today understand that phrase was coined 50 years ago on an incredible pitcher who came to the rescue of the worst bunch of misfits to ever put on a uniform in baseball history, the New York Mets.

    And his name was The Franchise, Tom Seaver.

    Not that I'm bragging about David Wrong mind you.

    Christian Arroyo was the #1 prospect in the Giants farm system and the #3 ranked prospect overall. He is now your #4 ranked prospect in Tampa Bay, not to mention 2 pitchers that you can develop. It was a nice return, and much more than the Marlins got for Stanton or Ozuna, so kudos to Tampa Bay in my opinion.

    The Mets extended GM Alderson's contract.

    Now that Loria is out of baseball, are the Wilpon's the worst owners in MLB?

    The Mets managed to out-Met themselves and decided to bring back former GM Omar Minaya as a special assistant to GM Sandy Alderson. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

    Wade Davis to the Rockies. 3 years, 52 million. Their bullpen looks really good now. Too bad I can't name a starter they have outside of Jon Gray.

    Sounds like Gerrit Cole is heading to the Astros. Defending champs will have Kuechel, Verlander, and Cole as their top three starters. Real scary.

    EDIT: Guess not, yet...

    Hey, if they could trade Dickey again for a Syndergaard-esque pitcher I'd be all for it.

    Jays and Donaldson agree to $23 million dollar deal for next year. Apparently it is a record for arbitration standards.

    If the baby comes 1-2 days later than expected, I can be on leave for Opening Day. That would be fantastic.

    Guess the Mets aren't interested in Duda any longer as they signed Adrian Gonzalez. Can't hate this move as it's pretty much low risk, high reward since they're only on the hook for the league minimum and the Braves pay for the rest.

    2018 Hall of Fame class:

    Jim Thome - 89.8%
    Vlad Guerrero - 92.9%
    Trevor Hoffman - 79.9%
    Chipper Jones - 97.2%

    All 4 deserve it. And as much as I hate Larry Jones, he definitely deserves it the most.

    In a big spot I wouldn't trust Trevor Hoffman to close a door.

    Oh but the numbers, the numbers.

    Billy Wagner was a better closer.

    The numbers don't tell the whole story. Mike Mussina still isn't in and the numbers don't blow your mind, but he pitched during the steroid era in the AL East his entire career.

    Speaking of the steroid era, just let them all in.

    There's so much bullshit with the writers voting for the Hall of Fame.

    "Oh, this guy didn't talk to us, he was mean to me, Curt Schilling is a political wacko so I can't vote for him."

    The best ever being "No one should be a first ballot hall of famer."

    What the fuck?

    Looking like the cubs will end up with darvish after all. Not a done deal but the fact they went out and got darvish's catcher buddy seems to indicate we are on that track.

    Quote possible Arrita pulls a big balls move and sits out the 1st half of the season to drive his price up since no one is getting close to his demands.

    Brewers with a couple solid moves today. Love the Yelich pickup, he’s gonna be a beast at Miller Park. Getting Cain is gonna hopefully shore up the outfield defense, and allows them to make a trade for a pitcher.
    Hoping they can pry Archer from @Torn Tampa Bay Rays

    Definitely good moves for the brew crew. Made them a lot more intimidating in the central.

    I wonder if they ever thought that maybe Wisconsin people just aren't as interested in going to the game as they think? Guess we will find out.

    Darvish finally signs, 6 years with the Cubbies. Not a fan of it for them, I mean it gives them a solid, steady 1-2 with Lester but I think they should've found a way to keep Arrieta instead.

    Uh, think you forgot about hendricks and quinta there bud.

    Great rotation. On top of that got a phenom in the farm system getting close to coming up.

    Seeing a few things happening this weekend.

    Hosmer to the Padres, an 8 year deal with opt-out after 5. 8 year at $139 mil if he stays. I think this will be another signing resembling a few seasons ago they went wild with acquisitions, J. Upton, Kemp, Kimbrel, etc. And this means likely moving Myers to OF. Should be an adventure.

    Twins getting Odorizzi from Rays for a a bag of golf balls, not a bad consolation prize missing out on Darvish.

    CJ Cron traded to Tampa, Nunez resigning with the Sox as well.

    JD Martinez signs with Boston.

    They still won’t beat Houston.

    Don't worry, with Donaldson leaving after this year (probably midseason trade) the Jays are basically in the same position, we just haven't admitted it to ourselves yet.
