Jon Heyman -  Yankees see Anthony Rizzo as the realistic good first base option now, and will try to make that work. Their expectation, as is the case with most, all along has been that the Freeman sweepstakes is between the Braves and Dodgers.

Joel Sherman -  My perception of Freeman market: 1. Dodgers make sense, but how far will ownership take payroll without clarification on Bauer's playing (and paying) status for season. 2. BlueJays are stalking horse. Other clubs perceive they have $$ to spend and could form a super lineup with Freeman. Would he go there? 3. Yankees really comes down to if Hal Steinbrenner allows long-term expenditure when wants to also extend Judge and has Cole/Stanton on books already into late 30s -- plus now Donaldson for $50M over next 2 yrs. Rays they are the backup plan to the backup plan, but they haven't surrendered and are seeing what happens to the field in front of them. 5. As my friend, Jon Heyman points out regularly, there are almost always mystery teams. Boston? Seattle? Texas?
