    How so? The Eaton trade?

    4% is the going rate. I think your calculator malfunctioned.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Wearing his yellow sleeve.

    Actually it was more like 28-29 games at first base, the rest at DH back in late 90's. It was laughable then, and baseball writers (or whoever makes the awards) took some heat for it.

    Good question. Maybe he made zero errors that year, and that was all it took. I don't know. You can ask the same question about Palmiero getting a GG years ago when he only played 19 games or so at first base and was a DH the rest of that year.

    My baseball network of fans has a few Cardinal lovers. They all say Ozuna is awful in LF in every phase of defense. I would rather play Rutherford out there in spring training. Or Avi. Plus, why does he wear that stupid yellow sleeve? Why is it even allowed?

    Slight exaggeration. Have you been all over? Or are you just speaking in a baseball context?

    Padres / rays: Tommy Pham trade

    Looks like Rays prefer Renfroe to Avi.

    Is Nova available?

    Joc Pederson - Is it goin down?

    Bellinger is supposed to be full time outfielder next year, making Joc expendable. IOW, don't give up too much.
  11. Sorry, I can't remember everyone's roster at that time. Chances are, Yanks would have gone elsewhere to dump Chapman only to re-sign him that off season. I have no idea what their (Yanks) second best option would have been. I wasn't privy to those negotiations. I can tell you that at the time I thought Cubs gave up too much for Chapman. It would have been like Sox giving up Robert last August for a reliever with two months of service left, assuming Sox were contending for Division title. Sometimes you just have to walk away. Theo didn't, and he got played by Yanks GM.
  12. Disagree. Chapman was so readily available, I didn't believe at the time that Cubs had to give up that much. Still don't. Theo had other ways to help his bullpen without giving up Torres. Theo got played by Yank GM.

    Brewers are not going to trade Hader. IMO. He's a bargain.

    Jonathan Villar traded to the Marlins

    Maybe not. Maybe he is too heavy and has limited range for infield, and maybe they feel that he cannot duplicate 2019 offensively. Maybe he is the team asshole. How many times have you seen him play?

    Burr DFA'd

    Jack, do you also dislike RBI's? e.g. Abreu had over 100 RBI's in 2019. Runs Batter Ins.
