Isn't the definition of a mystery team, that it's a team no one knows about? Once the team is exposed, it's no longer a mystery

Any.....minute



the super bowl was the only thing more boring than the baseball offseason.

I can't believe pitchers and catchers report next week, and neither of these guys has signed.

My extremely uninformed opinion is that Bryce returns to the Nats and Machado goes to the South Side. He'll fit right in with their fan base.

Up to now, this offseason had been like the bar scene in A Beautiful Mind where all the mathematicians decide that they’d all be better off not hitting on the hot chick and hitting on her plainer friends instead.

Except in this version, they’ve all decided that they’d be even better off than that by not hitting on chicks at all.

If he doesn’t want to win for the majority of his contract since they’re absolutely stuck and in a horsefeathers spots with contracts and age and see his career counting numbers suffer playing in that park. Then yeah, it’s a great fit

that's what has cracked me up about the "lets just send heyward to the giants with alzolay!" or whatever talk. Why wouldn't they just sign bryce harper for *checks notes* the exact same amount of money

We’d be taking some combo of Cueto, Melancon And Samardzija back. In that scenario. I don’t think anyone thought we’d dump his whole deal.

Also, at the very least, in a hypothetical Heyward trade Cubs pick up the 20mill deferred signing bonus, then he's down to 5/106 left on his contract. Harper will do much better than that or MLB should be shut down.

that's a difference of like $8-10m AAV, if you are willing to give butt-ass jason heyward 20 mil a year you should be shot if you aren't willing to give harper 30 mil
