Oakland is looking for a dependable closer. This should get real interesting, given the rumor mill....

Could they actually spend?

I don't understand how a guy that played in the 2019 playoffs, and played over a third of the games in the 2020 season can still win rookie of the year in 2021?? 2021 was technically Arozarena's 3rd year in the league!!

It's because he barely had any playing time for the first two years.

In 2019 he had only 23 plate appearances.
In 2020 he had 76 plate appearances.

You need 130 or more at bats to not be a rookie anymore. Now, I originally thought because of 2020 he would not be considered a rookie anymore but he only had 76 in like 23 games out of 60 so that's probably why.

12 years and $185mil guaranteed for Wander Franco. Not bad for a 20 year old. That's a pretty great deal for the Rays.

Things are getting hot now:

Max Scherzer has just signed with the Mets. It's a 3-year deal. These guys have had a very aggressive weekend, having also signed Canha, Marte, and Escobar to short-term deals. Don't be surprised if they can squeeze in someone else.

The Rangers have also been aggressive, rather surprisingly. Two big moves have solidified their infield: They got Marcus Semien and Corey Seager. That's pretty huge, considering how far from contention Texas actually is.

In Houston, the Astros have reportedly replaced Kendall Graveman with Hector Neris (from Philly). I'll be spending some time watching some of his highlights.

Seattle is getting very serious, too. They are in the process of finalizing with Robbie Ray to 5 years. This on the heels of nabbing Adam Frazier in a deal with San Diego.

We'll see what tomorrow brings before this lockout happens.

Yea I don’t understand the value they gave to Seager.

With his injury history, when did 25 HR’s and 90 RBI’s become elite level contract worthy?

Now he has the added pressure to live up to 300+ million.

Well, howz about these apples? Sonny Gray is now a Minnesota Twin. He's going in there in exchange for a first-rounder to Cincy.

Sounds like the Nats signed Nelson Cruz (according to people on Nats Twitter) and the Gary Sanchez era in the Bronx is mericifully over as he's part of a trade that send Josh Donaldson to the Yankees.

Phillies resigned Herrera.. Meh.




He's.. Not a horrid player.. Not that great a person.. but.. The baggage with him. Think both sides would have been better off with a clean start.

Looks like, short of Harper, they're kinda going to a platoon outfield. Or.. Staying with it I should say.
