Kind of what I figured but somebody has to lose significant time in the field right?

So does jacoby basicly get paid yo go away?

A part of me is happy that "the yankees are kind of likable" lasted like six months.

Baseball sucks.


So now that they aren’t gonna get Harper, does this mean a stronger push for Machado?

As long as there are yankees fans, the yankees will never be likable.

And that's mostly because PA isn't about letting players take less money.

You can't just blow your team off after 29 years. This last season was probably the most fun I can remember. My penance was choosing the Jets over the Giants as a kid.

The minor leaguers #Marlins are getting are Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers, who is Rafael Devers' cousin.

The league let a group with no cash buy the team because Jeter was the face, when they had a Miami-based billionaire also bidding on the team, so of course they don't care about trades.

Heyman said the dodgers offered better prospects but they wanted too much money and the Marlins liked receiving an actual major league in return.

The Yankees also don't receive any cash until Stanton's opt out, if he leaves the Marlins don't have to pay.

The Marlins ownership group is said to still be $250m short of all the money they need. That's part of why they're trading everyone. But they're still trying to add investors.

Now that Starlin is gone, wouldn't Gleyber force Didi to 2nd or is he better defensively?

Also, Cubs moving on Brandon Morrow. Will probably assume the closer role if they nab him.

Didi's arm is wasted anywhere but short. Even if he wasn't a better defender.

Gregerson to the Cards for 2/11 and Morrow to the Cubs on a two year deal for supposedly 10-11 a year.

Feel like the Giants have to do something, St Louis probably has more flexibility and he was just a luxury to the Dodgers.
