If true, I suppose I could see them getting some additional prospects to get Archer and also clearing up the outfield log jam.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

I feel like they should be able to trade Braun without having to take Kemp back.

With these two teams, have to imagine it’s a must due to luxury tax.

5-dimensional chess playing again. He's going to scare Theo into signing Bartolo Colon.

A couple days ago, but the Dbacks DFA'd Yasmany Tomas. That.....worked out well for them.

-2.4 bWAR in three seasons. Still owed $46 million.

Take another off the market after the season

The Rockies have announced an extension with outfielder Charlie Blackmon. In addition to re-working his already agreed-upon 2018 salary, the new deal will cover as many as five additional seasons.

Blackmon will be guaranteed $108MM from the start of the deal, Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports reports (Twitter link). That includes $94MM in new money, $63MM of which comes over the three seasons that are locked in before the player options.

Though Blackmon will receive the same amount ($14MM) he was already promised for 2018, $2MM of that will now come by way of signing bonus. He’ll then earn $21MM annually from 2019 through 2021. Blackmon will consider a $21MM player option for 2022 and a $10MM option for the final season covered by the deal. That last number could escalate by up to $8MM based upon his plate appearance tally and MVP placement.

I wonder if something like this for Rizzo will happen in the next offseason or two once we decide to go over the LT. After this year he’s signed through 2021 with options at a total of $40 million (11 mil in 2019, 14.5 in 20 and 21). Maybe add 3 years and take it to around $80-100 total starting next year making him signed through 2023.
