    YOU CANT FLIM FLAM THE Z-MAN
  2. Eli Manning is retiring

  3. Astros get the hammer dropped on them-Lunhow/Hinch fired

    My money is on the Giants. They implemented it in the playoffs

    Probably a year too late, but okay. Maybe they'll be smart and trade Bell if he gets out to a hot start this year.

    Oh I think that is the best case scenario for both teams. I think Betts wants to get paid. If the Sox have the highest offer, then he'll come back to the Red Sox. But it's obvious that he wants to get to free agency. I dont think keeping him on 86 win team that misses the playoffs is going to help re-sign him. Certainly not nearly as much as dumping Price's salary will do. Or moving Betts for prospects who become quality major leaguers that offset his 40 million AAV in 2023.

    Meyers and Price have the same time left on their deals. So swapping them is about a 12 million AAV dollar decrease in payroll for the Red Sox. I get wanting to get rid of Price's contract. I even understand packaging Betts to get someone to take him. And I even understand trading Betts now since you wont get a "home town discount" on an extension, so it gives you the chance to do what the Yankees did with Chapman. I just dont get the Meyers part. Even at his best, he was a decent bat, but that's it.

    I dont get it. That's trading Betts for okay prospects and like ~15 million AAV in payroll relief.

    Myers + prospects for Betts seems extremely counter to the Sox stated goal of cutting Payroll. They probably want to stick David Price in this deal.
  9. Derek Jeter and Larry Walker elected to HoF

    2800+ hits and maybe the best glove at shortstop should be enough to get you into the HoF. If there hadn't been such an outpouring of support for Walker and adjusting his numbers for Coors, then Walker probably doesn't get in. Seems pretty clear that the voters wanted Jeter to get in on a drama-free card.

    I'd rather not have cheating. If that means a strike, so be it.
  11. Montez Sweat vs Preston Smith

    Yea, we certainly put that extra cap space to work
  12. Derek Jeter and Larry Walker elected to HoF

    In what world are Bernie Williams and Kenny Lofton versions of each other?
  13. Braves sign Ozuna (1/18 million)

    This is a really good deal for the Braves. They get to give Waters a year to develop, and not lose much production with the departure of Donaldson. Give Enciarte another year and in 2021, the Braves starting outfield is Waters-Pache-Acuna, and they will have figured out if Riley is worth keeping or not by then.
