    They're not. They've been using the media to try to get fans to stop thinking about Correa for weeks. This was them choosing Baez over paying whatever Correa is going to get (assuming Correa didn't already tell them he's not interested first).

    This is what happens when you suck for 5 years and then suddenly decide to spend money. 6/$140M isn't enough for Javy Baez and you have to kick in an opt out after year 2.

    Javy isn't going to be exercising that opt out after he continues to suck for two more years.

    Good lord. You know when you're watching that it's really bad, but sometimes you don't realize it's that bad.

    I'm sensing a lot of it in here this morning. Now I know what Cub fans had to put up with all these years.

    Man. An opt out after 2 years eliminates any (theoretical) upside from Detroit’s perspective. That’s a rough one.

    If they aren't even trying to negotiate the last 7-10 days (and it doesn't seem like they have), when are they actually going to start taking this seriously?

    will another work stoppage halt an otherwise unstoppable run for the pennant by the Expos/Nationals franchise?

    Keep the free agent signings coming. Need to have as much excitement before it all comes to a crashing halt.

    Guessing today is the last day for that. Anything tomorrow means they won't be able to complete physicals and work out all the terms in time.

    Don't have a subscription but here's the summary..

    2 different balls with different performance profiles. According to a new study by Meredith Wills, a Society for American Baseball Research award-winning astrophysicist, the league used two distinct types of baseballs — one lighter and deader than the other — during the 2021 season.

    This is a sport where we don't know what the rules are and are going to be so why not different balls too

    Seems like a dead ball and juiced ball could give massive advantages to one team or another.

    I feel like someone that knew about this probably made a bunch of money betting over/under in games.

    Nice move, Fish. Looking forward to Wendle hitting roughly .600 against the Bravos next season.

    Most likely substantially better than what Misner ever is.

    Misner played A ball this year at 23 and was just ok-ish.

    Wendle is a good hitter and has incredible defensive flexibility at the major league level.
