Cardinals just traded a lot to get Paul Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt is fantastic player.

Rockies signed Daniel Murphy for 2 years. I was hoping the Cubs could keep him but not to be. He's a great hitter.

I'm also hearing Machado going to the Yanks. Harper is more of a wild card but thinking Philadelphia.

That would suck for my Cubs.

Speaking of which, they really hurt themselves with the Darvish, Chatwood, and Heyward signings. Reached on all three IMO. Hopefully, they can bounce back because they are paying for it in this free agency.

You think teams would learn throwing guaranteed money at these players is never going to work.
MLB needs to model contracts like the NFL where only signing bonuses are guaranteed. Way too many pitchers go down with injury every year and no one can throw a complete game. In the NFL, you get hut and it's see you later with an injury payout.

The Players Union will never allow it.

That plays a huge part in it. Anyways, I'm pulling for the Yankees to get Machado. Get Didi back hopefully at some point and make a trade with Andujar at some point. Lock up Didi after the season is over and the left side will be locked up with top of the line defense along with the offense they bring.

Machado could really help them but he could really hurt them financially. The Yanks have been shedding payroll for awhile. They would be right back at that tax hit if they sign him.

Itís like my Cubs, I want Harper but not at that price. Maybe they can find someone stupid enough to take on Heywards contract.

As expected Andrew Miller to St. Louis:

https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2018/12/21...lion-contract/

He really did have a bit of a down year in 2018. Interested to see how well does in St. Louis. A pretty hefty contract honestly for his production last year, but he's been dominant before.

That's part of it too. No one plays 162 games any more. They all need at least one day of rest a week, Pathetic

Cubs still may go after Harper. Him and Bryant are boys and his dog's name is Wrigley. Make it happen Theo. I also like this idea, as I feel it'd make Bryant want to stay long term. Philly or Chicago Cubs? Easy decision for me.

I thought all this too. But, everything Iíve read, not including your sticky you posted has indicated that the Cubs are cash strapped. I hope Iím wrong.

Dodgers are the hot team now with the Harper rumor mill. The Cubs obviously have a number and are more than likely to go a tad beyond if they wanted a call before he signed with another team.

Nationals re-offered him at a very high figure. Either way, wish him and Machado would sign, as it would really open up the direction of this FA.

Robertson to Philadelphia for 2 years:

Yeah, in typical Boris fashion he slows the market down. It doesnít look like neither one liked Philly. Iím guessing Dodgers or Yanks at most. Nobody else is going to pony up that type of money. However, I did see the White Sox made an offer to Machado

I don't have it yet but my little brother is sending me a Pro-Preferred PROS12-2PRO 12 inch. I have a glove I played with somewhere in my house, it about 22 years old. I couldn't even tell you the model, other than it's a Rawlings infielders glove.

Yanks added to their pen by signing Ottavino. But more importantly now we're getting close to Spring Training and Machado and Harper are still without a team. I feel like the Yanks are done for the most part so its interesting to see where and how much these two get. Longer it goes I think Harper back to the Nats and Machado the Philly. That's my best guess.
