The problem with Gallardo's physical is his shoulder.

Oh yeah so what Bautista really meant when he said the rumours were false is that he wants MORE than 150mil lolol

So Fowler signed with the Cubs moments ago to a one year deal. That was somewhat random.

Yeah this is what I don't get. He's not really guaranteed to be a full time starter and he turned down a boat load of money in Baltimore for $8 million in 2016. I'm confused


Edit: I guess Baltimore refused to give him an early opt out so he told them thanks but no thanks

So the orioles were signing Fowler and a presumably healthy Gallardo a couple days ago. Now all that's happened is they gave up their first rounder for an alright pitcher with a bad shoulder.

Now's when you find a way to back out of the Gallardo deal.

Saw the A's traded Aaron Brooks for him. Dude has a chance to be a decent end of the rotation guy as long as he's able to control his mechanics.

Jake is the only player of those 3 that legitimately bums me out. We essentially traded Strop for Steve Clevenger who we traded to Seattle for Trumbo. Not mad about that

I respect the betting on himself aspect and can't really blame him for wanting to be on a good team, but can't the Cubs offer him another QO next year?

I don't think they can.

nevermind, they can because he rejected the initial QO. my bad.

Also, the FA Market is shit next year so he'll probably get a better deal.

Indians for the World Series win. It won't be like when I was 12 in tears when a missed ground ball to 2nd in the 11th inning cost us the ring fuck tony Fernandez! Fuck the Marlins and fuck the Atlanta braves. 1995 and 1997 has so much emotions for a young Indiana fan

Maurer with new eyes. Hughes lost some weight. A full year of Smell Drugs. Gibson might have a break out year. Iffy bullpen. Taking a chance at DH. Putting their best hitter in the RF when he should be at third. I could see the Twins 2 games above/below .500

Dan Haren was on Jonah Keri's podcast, he was amazing. One of his best lines was about how he dealt with being booed, "I didn't get booed much last year though, the cubs were really good and no one went to the games in Miami."
