Underpants signs with Giants. Dang, I thought he was a solid veteran platoon.

Apparently he turned down a bunch of other offers and wanted to return to SF

I’m surprised he got $3 million plus incentives.  Not a bad deal considering how old he is.

Gordy Bexx going to Padres camp in his age 33 season.

More proof that not being an asshole pays off if you haven't been a very good player.

Also helps being available for vet minimum vs. asking for several million dollars.

Sox should claim Kyle Garlick, who was just DFA'd for Mookie.

RH hitting OF.  Two options remaining. Mashed in AAA last year and played well in minimal MLB action.  Not sure off hand how the glove grades, but would be at worst good AAA depth for Eloy or Mazara injury, and could even be an MLB bench piece / platoon option for Mazara.

Maybe have to trade for him, but Sox should do it.  The two options remaining is very valuable.

He signed a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.  Not much of a payoff.

CBS new power rankings. Respect is still an illusion. Sox at 18 Twins 3. Fair to suggest that the Strohs may be falling back a bit.

I think that's a solid list IMO. I'm very happy with 18 going into the season, we have so many young guys and our SP's have very little track record so we are going to have to prove it to move up the list. 

Being ranked about Trout+rendon's Angels and the Padres is actually pretty surprising TBh.

Very lazy/boring list, but then power rankings usually are.  After making a big deal up front about how "2020 is not 2019" they basically just reproduce power rankings from the end of 2019 with a few little tweaks.   It would be fun if one of these would actually take a position and predict huge jumps/huge declines that will inevitably happen over the course of the season.

Did the Cubs sign Jason Kipnis or Stan Ipkis? 

I love that movie. Young Cameron Diaz looking good.

Me too, and absolutely about young Cameron Diaz. 

You know who else loves it? Eloy Jimenez.

If you keep posting this in multiple threads, multiple times a day, eventually they will sign one. At this point, we all know who is left.
