  1. Bud Selig and John Schuerholz voted in by the Veteran's committee. The various vet's committees have voted in 13 managers & executives vs. only 3 players (Santo, Joe Gordon and Deacon White) over the past decade. I realize that's the only avenue to the Hall for the off-field contributors and I don't disagree with either 2017 inductee but it seems kind of screwed up to have them competing on the same ballot with players.
  2. I like Do They Know It's Christmas? Always have. My only criticism and the one I made earlier in the thread is that the list of performers contained very few A-listers.
  3. 9.xx - Do They Know It's Christmas? - Richard Cheese - Novelty Pays the same Spotify royalty rate to African famine relief as Saint Bob's version.
  4. 2/$4M for Mathis seems a year too long but maybe David Ross has raised the market for gritty veteran Cs. Arizona favored Mathis over Welington Castillo who was non-tendered. Castillo is the better fantasy option but GM Mike Hazen is our next genius so I trust his judgement on backup Cs. They also released Rubby de la Rosa who Hazen is familiar with from Boston. De la Rosa has always had stuff but never much success. He's an injury question too. I'm curious to see where he ends up.
  5. Shoulder is a big question mark. Preller decided it wasn't worth $10M to find out the answer.
  6. Crappy catcher dominoes starting to fall. First Castro, then Norris, now Jeff Mathis to the Diamondbacks. Mathis needs to go 11 for 11 this year to bring his career AVG above the Mendoza line for the first time since 2009.
  7. I don't hate the Norris trade. The need was there and the price was right. Norris is a left handed bat and should bounce back offensively a bit. His defensive metrics behind the plate seem OK although his CS% isn't.
  8. He mashed lefties to the tune of .203/.289/.339 last season.
  9. Derek Norris back to Washington in exchange for a minor league arm. He can't be as bad as he was in 2016, right? The Nats also non-tender Ben Revere.
  10. A number of established Latin stars reported lobbied the union in opposition to the international draft
  11. Let's finish round 8 this afternoon. Feel free to post a 9th rounder and make-up picks anytime this weekend.
