    I did love this line particularly:

    "That’s the kind of sophistication you don’t find in small market front offices like the Yankees. "

    "After all the top free agents sign with other teams, I can’t wait to see what Cashman finds diving into the dumpster. Hooray bargains. The whole reason I watch baseball is to root for players signed to below-market deals. "

    Encarnacion is not part of 3-way deal. He was discussed in trade but would go to Tampa in separate trade at later time i
    Nightenfail and Ken Rosenfalse are the best.

    "The Marlins are not wavering. They want a top 0-3 year player, someone like Cody Bellinger or Ozzie Albies, and on top of that they want some good prospects."
    Sorry you got fleeced when you gave away 2 MVPs because of payroll bullshit, but that doesn’t mean you can make up for it by treating Realmuto like he's Johnny Bench. Jeter’s such a tool.

    Grandal to the Brewers on a 1-year, $18.25M deal, which is just about $350k above the QO from the Dodgers that he turned down. I mean, he couldn't have just gone back to the Dodgers and asked them for the extra $350k? Seems like a spiteful move.

    Benching in the World Series probably the reason... but he deserved it.

    It's looking like if Machado takes the White Sox's 8-year, $250 million offer, the Phillies probably go all-in on Harper. So, thanks, nerds, for trading Puig for nothing so then you can go full cop out and roll out Alex "I Used To Be A Prospect" Verdugo as the starting right fielder. This after you passed on Verlander and J.D. Martinez so you can get under the tax. It cost us a World Series twice. No big deal.

    at least you didn't get under the luxury tax to blow a ton of money on a 2B who can't even get to league average batting in Colorado and a RP who blew his Achilles and seems to give up a run every appearance. Not to mention we did the same with Verlander.
