    Cubs picked up Cole Hamels $20M option for 2019, and in order to save on some payroll, traded Drew Smyly ($7M or $5M for 2019) & PTBNL for a PTBNL to the Rangers.

    Very happy we have brought back Hamels, we lost some rotational depth though.

    Yep, it was either 2 years/$65M for the opt in, so he resigned for 3 years/$93M. Slight discount for the 3rd year.

    I found Sully's perspective on the arrival of off season quite poignant...

    Rich get richer.

    Yanks gave up their number 1, 22 and an unranked prospect.

    Probably means Cruz won’t be returning to Seattle either

    Big risk but hopefully it’s for high reward. Hopefully more to come

    Sounds as though Seattle are tearing it down and starting again

    Seattle tearing it down big time I reckon, Shame as I’m going to be there for first three home games this season.

    Risky move with Paxton but worth the risk especially for what they gave up. Yanks are always win now mode and are going to attract more high end FA. Good move IMO

    Braves sign veterans Brian McCann ($2m) and Josh Donaldson ($23m) to 1 yr deals. Not sure im a big fan of the moves but hoping Donaldson is looking to have a big year as he is a free agent next year - just got to stay healthy. Thought Camargo was good last year but braves prefer him as a utility i think. (also have Riley at AAA who they earmark to play 3B in 2020) McCann will share time with Flowers but think he is past it and not a big fan of this move - will add good veteran presence in clubhouse though

    Having a bit of a crack at it for next year... With Kurt gone to Washington they did need a catcher. Yankees are probably right at getting rid of him, but I suppose we will see how we go.

    Macca will teach the young pitchers a lot, Brent Strom is one of the best pitching coaches around, no doubt Macca would've learnt a lot from him.

    Mets making a few moves, more to come apparently. Cano is getting old but is pretty consistent and diaz is a top shelf closer

    Apparently for 4 years, $67M.

    Bryce Harper and Manny Machado must be looking at these latest deals and thinking “keep ‘em coming!!!”.

    I tend to agree. If the cardinals supplement that trade with other moves and make a run next year, good move for both teams. If the Cardinals don’t make a run next year, the D’Backs will have won the trade. For now Arizona would be happy with the return and the Cardinals as a divisional contender have received a very good player but the take on a lot of the risk,
