Cinci hasn't been able to fill that no-hit-run-like-hell slot since they lost Billy Hamilton

Interesting move by the Rangers to trade for Welington Castillo's club option and international bonus pool money.  They traded a non-prospect and paid Castillo's $500K  buyout in exchange for the privilege of spending $250K more on international free agents.

Carlos Beltran is the NYM manager. 

I heard someone say he was analytical in a way that most great players aren't, and compared him to Ted Williams and Tony Gwynn.

Pablo Sandoval's 2020 option was bought out by Boston so that contract is finally over.  With the $5M buyout, it was $95M for five years of below replacement performance.  The Giants got 1.2 rWAR for their half of the term, the Sox got -2.

He replaces Don Mattingly as the active manager with the best playing career.

Who would have thunk we would see the day a 31 year old player would opt out of 4 years 100 million dollar guaranteed contract.

The Brewers trade Chase Anderson's club option to Toronto for a non-prospect who's not Rule 5 eligible.

They also declined Eric Thames' option.

Good riddance to the Diamondbacks' terrible dark gray uniforms.

Can't wait for those to be a cool throwback option in 2039

I'll get used to 'em but I don't like the SwooshTM on the 2020 jerseys.

I'm with you. I feel like it's one of those things that will bother me for 6 weeks and then I'll never notice it again.

The Philadelphia beat writer for The Athletic had an article listing the myriad of reasons for Kapler's dismissal, and one reason that stuck out was his going "rogue" when it came to the analytical reports from the front office. It seems that Kapler would take the daily scouting reports and alter them to his specifications before passing them out to the players. In particular strategies regarding defensive shifts, and instructions for that day's starting pitcher in the way to attack the opposing lineup.  

That meltdown Jake Arrieta had about the defense makes a lot more sense, now.

Will Smith (the RP not the C) to Atlanta for 3/$39M.

He was a good Giant, glad to see him get paid.

Saw that there is trade interest in Jon Gray, could be very interesting on another team(even though his Coors numbers are actually pretty solid).
