Re: Offseason Transactions



I'm sure MLBPA will be all over the Braves when Acuña starts 2018 in the minors, just like with Bryant and the Cubs.

No, its to avoid the harsher penalties from being repeat offenders next offseason. They're re-setting for next year's monster free agent class.

Re: Phillies make a Smooth deal

Seems like a weird signing for an NL team that already has Rhys Hoskins.

Re: Winter Meetings 2017 thread

Tomorrow is the rule V. Anyone interesting? We’ve talked about Burdi, an easy injury stash with an arm. RHP Jose Almonte from the D’Backs and LHP Jordan Guerrero from the White Sox seem interesting but not sure this is the roster for them. Twins RH Jake Reed might have a shot as a sinkerballer. Don...

Re: Marcell Ozuna Traded to the Cardinals

Looking at the numbers I’m not seeing much difference between Alcantara and Alzolay other than Alcantara had a nominal MLB stint this past year. So if Passan is right and Yelich is available and Nightengale is being his usual buffoon self even if the asking price is “substantially higher” Happ and ...

Meh. Would rather see the Cardinals part with Reyes, Flaherty and/or Weaver.

Re: Bullpen Options

Assuming its an oversight, since we've not signed a guy since Theo said we're still looking for at LEAST one more pen arm. But Rosenthal didn't mention us in his list of teams still shopping. At any rate, I can see us trading for our other guy. If not, maybe we're holding off until we know for sure...

Re: Smyly for the camera

I was thinking maybe a shorter term option is on the table, now that I look at the rentals Corbin is the only name that would conceivably make sense. J.A. Happ might be another guy if the Jays decide to punt. The Cubs probably wouldn't have to give up an actual asset to get Edinson Volquez from the...
