Re: Offseason Transactions

Where does the LT penalty money go? Do non-offenders get it paid to them divided up evenly? Does it go to the poor/small market teams? Does it go to just some general MLB fund? I found this on Wikipedia, sourced from MLBPlayers.com: On December 2 at the end of each contract year, the Commissioner's...

The box score says the was blowing 22mph in from CF at game time. Either those winds died or he hit a bullet.

Re: 2017 Draft Thread

Potential top 10 pick: https://twitter.com/joseph_duarte/status/850553430716370945 Apparently it's not his first suspension. He seems to have attitude issues of some sort. He was suspended his first 2 starts of last season for conduct detrimental to the team. He made his start last Friday, but viol...

Reading through Black's tweets, it looks like Carson Sands also had surgery.

Re: Mock Offseason Thread

If we're doing a deal with the A's for pitching, I would like to see us try to get Frankie Montas too. I think he could be a good multi-inning bullpen option.

Re: ITT: Raisin & Tom/King Kong Obsess Over Shohei Otani

Otani has now hit a double that disappeared into the ceiling of the stadium: https://twitter.com/sung_minkim/status/797769112348831744/video/1 Edited to add: I originally thought it was a homer, but was called a double. Here it is in real time: https://mobile.twitter.com/sung_minkim/status/797770561...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I wasn't really sure where to post this, but I noticed today that Jacob Hanneman and Corey Black are playing for Cangrejeros de Santurce in the Puerto Rico winter league.

Their team has only played 7 games. Black has earned 2 saves in 4 games, Hanneman has only gone 2-25 so far.

Re: Cubs offseason thread

The Rangers outrighted their former closer, Shawn Tolleson, at the end of the season and he chose free agency. I think he could be an interesting bounce back candidate. He was really good in '14 and '15 before falling off a cliff this year. He turns 29 in January. Kris Medlen is another name that ha...

Re: Football is not enough, Tim Tebow wants to be bad at baseball.

Today was Tebow's first instructional league game, it happened to be against the Cardinals' team. Tebow homered on the first pitch he saw: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/2016/09/28/tim-tebow-home-run-first-at-bat-instructional-league-mets/91221144/ I am now a bigger fan of Tim Tebow.
