Glad for Gausman. Took a punt on himself and turned it into a massive payday. You are right, AN. I am ok with it being elsewhere.

The big one today is LAD SS Corey Seager to TEX for $325m over 10 years
SEA sign the AL Cy Young LHP Robbie Ray for $115m over 5.
ATL sign RHP RP Kirby Yates for $8.25m over 2
MIA trade RHP Zach Thompson and prospects to PIT for C Jacob Stallings
and unconfirmed LAA RHP Alex Cobb to SF.

Happy with what astros are doing …1 out 1 in plus we get JV back next year…anything he can do will be a bonus .

As for Correa whos going to be the highest bidder…

lost springer last year and we coped can we do it again next year?

Big Papi into the HOF in his first year of eligibilty with 77.9% of the vote.

Bonds, Clemens, Schilling and Sosa all fail to make the cut in the last year of eligibility.

Bonds was a HOF player before that idiotic and frankly narcissistic decision to ‘allegedly’ do PEDs. What a waste.

Universal DH is here.

Never again will a pitcher bat unless it’s a very weird situation (extra innings?).

Personally I’m not thrilled about it. I’m a National League guy who appreciates the old school managerial tactics around pinch-hitting decisions.

I suppose it could be justified considering pitchers have injured themselves enough lately hitting and running the bases.

Oh well… some traditions die I guess.

Logan Webb from the Giants is the last pitcher to ever hit a HR.

I am not a fan of this move to be honest.
