Dodgers gave Roberts a 4 year deal. :/

Kenley working on cardio week after his heart surgery. And Magic plus his partners going all in and met with Harper. He probably tried to pull a move he used with Lebron

Trade for Goldschmidt who can walk in a year. Same as Ozuna.

Or just spend on Harper who you can for sure lock up long term.

Nationals are going to heavily regret that deal and just lol @ Yankees fans getting mad because the Yankees are "cheap" for not paying Corbin $23.3 million AAV over six years.

On one side I really hope the white sox don't spend that much on one player that is likely only going to average like 3 WAR during the contract. On the other side it would be nice to have a star player on the white sox again since they really haven't since Frank Thomas (Chris Sale was to some degree but you only got to see him every 5 days)
Yeah, I can't fault the Yankees.
That's a lot of money for effectively 1 good year.

The fact that the reported number the Yankees offered was 5/100 doesn't mean that was their last, best and final.

It assuredly wasn't. There's no reason to put your cards on the table when the guy across from it wants a term you're not willing to do, e.g. a sixth year.

Tucker Barnhart tweeted something suspicious after the Reds blockbuster trade leaked out.
Kluber is gonna be ours :,)

Or Baur
I mean he’s great but his views and personality are gross.

I really hope the Mets don't trade Rosario or Conforto for Realmuto, but a Nimmo led package PLUS a signing of Pollock makes me happy

I'm calling Arizona the winner there.
two former top 100 players (once as recently as this year was 55th) another decent prospect and a draft pick for a 1 year rental.

I mean there is a chance none of them can pan out, but that seems like a really solid return for a 1 year rental.

I guess my viewpoint is its a great trade for both. Cards have pitching they believe can fare better than Weaver, and Kelly looks be supplanted by Knizner. I just don't trust this approach anymore, it burned us w/ Heyward (though that clearly turned out in our favor), but Goldschmidt will likely want to test FA, and Ozuna will for sure.

I also feel that since Goldy was acquired via trade, they still should go for Harper. Either way, you have a guy to build around, and if you extend Goldschmidt or Ozuna depending on how he bounces back, then even better.

I just don't see the Cards going that route. We'll get a few BP arms, and that'll be it. Fowler in RF next year w/ O'Neill as the 4th guy.

Well, I suppose there's always the "trade Goldschmidt before the deadline to the Yankees when you're out of playoff contention" dreams.
