First time in 20 years the Mariners might be ready to make the playoffs? Work stoppage sounds about right. 

Baseball fans in Montreal have reason to be excited? Work stoppage sounds about right

Mark Berman -  MLB sources: The Astros have offered free-agent shortstop Carlos Correa a five-year contract worth $160 million, averaging $32 million a year.

Now double the years and add another $100+ million.

Yeah.....it's been widely reported as a loser offer - but I dont follow the Astro's close enough to know how badly they want him back - or if they can afford him.
I know the Yankees aren't gonna pony up the years and money he's being talked about getting.....or at least I dont think so.

I hope he signs with the Tigers to reunite with Hinch.  He can be our vet leader while Greene and Tork come up this year and we can add an arm or two to go with him.  Should make us at least competitive in the Central since we had one of the best records after our 4-21 start.  We have a low payroll now but the Illitch family isnt afraid to spend when it matters, and it finally matters.  If not Correa, they will be trying for Seager, Story, and Baez.

It's the standard "Look, we offered $32 AAV for him but he just didn't want to resign here" type of offer that teams always make to outgoing superstars from their own team to try and take the heat off themselves with the fanbase.
