    I don't understand why Paddack is the pitcher you'd get if you're the Mets and you're taking on that Hosmer $$. Especially when you're giving up Smith in the process. I know Smith sucked last year, but I'm not sure I'd trade him for Paddack straight up.

    I also don't understand how a team like Baltimore or Cleveland with no financial commitments isn't sitting there running to take on the Hosmer deal for young pieces in return. Why wouldn't you do that?

    So the reports of all that interest in Manaea were bullshit if they were willing to take this now, right? Maybe Angeles ends up being really good down the road, but this seems very underwhelming considering the pitching market post-lockout.

    That's my Mattingly showing through.

    but seriously yesterday was my regular Saturday to get a cut but we had an Easter egg hunt thing yesterday morning so it got pushed back to mid week. I'll get it cleaned up, boss.

    Spring training stats are dumb, but I’m going to be very annoyed if Julio Rodriguez doesn’t make the Mariners to start the season. He’s hitting .419/.471/.839 this spring and projects to be one of the best (if not the best) player on the team.

    A team that is projected to be in the mix for a wildcard berth and who hasn’t made the playoffs in over 2 full fucking decades.

    you said you would be "stunned." Of course you can have a difference of an opinion through a homer lens, but clearly your view is an outlier.

    I suspect the Mariners will make the playoffs this year but I need to see it to truly believe it. I think they look more like a team with .500 talent than a real playoff contender like most of the AL East

    but they appear to have some actual nice young talent and aside from Houston (who aren't without their own question marks), the West is meh. Expanded playoffs. Oakland is not even trying. Texas added a couple nice bats in Seager (who will almost assuredly hit the IL for 20+ games at some point) and Semien but they're relying on a rotation led by Gray (I'd be fine with him as a #3 starter outside Coors), Pérez and Dunning. That doesn't scare anyone. And while LAA has star power in Ohtani, Trout and Rendon (and Walsh is gonna hit a bunch of homers too), they'll be lucky to get a full season from Trout and/or Rendon. LAA also seems to be relying on a rotation that will need Sandoval to take a decent jump forward (I bet he will but how many innings can he throw?) and Syndergaard to stay healthy (lol) so there's a lot of variance there

    especially on the heels of an offseason where I don't recall any significant upgrades to a team that needed to win like 20 straight games just to make the playoffs last year
