I'm more excited about people dumping their baseball cards in favor of poonini football cards so that I can buy them for super cheap.

Looking forward to the craziness after a few months of baseball-free sadness

Now that the World Series is over I fully expect MLB to hand down their punishment to the Braves in the next few days.

And then flip him for a good prospect or 2. Bucs need to move him and Cole for guys to shoot for playoffs in 2019. Couple nice young starters that will be up next year would be perfect. Having Meadows, Tucker, Newman, and Kramer up by mid-season ‘19 they could make a good run.

To defend their title, Houston needs to add to their bullpen. I wonder if they will go after Zach Britton still. Or since they have a title, they will no longer trade prospects for him and look for free agent signings instead.

Also won't happen but I would love it if they could get either Darvish(yes he choked thankfully) and or Otani.

I wonder if Tucker and Whitley make the team.

Topps is just now putting the finishing touches on the 2018 Series One cards for all the players who's contracts expired at the end of this season. They like to stay ahead of the announcements of player releases that start tomorrow.

White Sox trade Avisail Garcia & Jose Abreu for more prospects to finish the unloading part with trades of their rebuilding. The last thing for them is to let James Shields go, my thinking is in August. He'll have around $2.5 million still owed to him by the Sox (Padres remember is paying half of his salary), plus they will give him his $2 million buyout for next year. Then it's time to buy and contend in 2019.


I'm really looking forward to seeing Jimenez & Kopech being called up in 2018.

I believe Stanton will be traded to one of four teams - Cardinals, Dodgers, Yankees, or Mets.

I read Tanaka has until midnight Saturday if he wants to opt out. Glad this decision will come rather quickly and hope he doesn't opt out. Big potential offseason chip.

You are being sarcastic but I wouldn't mind it. He struggled against a team he pitched against his whole career imagine that.
