    Anything is an upgrade. Hopefully it's not an 8 year deal.

    Only way it’s okay is if we use the savings to sign another guy like Chris Taylor. Otherwise, if our only free agent signings are Baez and Rodriguez, it will be a garbage off season. Hopefully Avila is leaking this news to jock sniffer Morrosi, to try and put pressure on Correa.

    Fuck this owner and franchise. Hopefully Hinch leaves after this season and puts up the bird to Chris Illitch. Fucking cheap ass sell the team already.

    All the MLB guys are reporting this. And other reports I've seen are that Baez probably goes before the lockout. Which means this feels like his agents leaking to the rest of the league "We'll sign with Detroit if you don't come for us! I swear we'll do it!!"

    I'm kind of shocked by how negative the response I've seen on twitter from Tigers fans on the Baez thing. Curious how much is "I don't want Baez" compared to "he's not Correa".

    I would say most of it’s the latter, but I also think there is a subsection of analytics people that are a vocal minority that are also against the deal.

    The analytics of Baez actually aren't as bad as people might think from an overall perspective. That's not why I don't want him. He's a good defender and the bar for offense at SS is low. Even when he was bad in Chicago this year he was on pace for a 3-4 win season.

    I just can't stand watching that kind of approach every night. I still hate Pudge 15 years later for it.

    Should help set the amount Correa gets. Get off your ass Avila. You got two days to get this done.

    Good for Semien. If that's the market, I'm cool with sitting out and seeing what happens when the CBA dust clears.

    Take on 3 extra years for Correa and that’s 10 for $250 million. And you figure he’s worth about $5 mil more per season, gets you 10/$300 million.

    I think we have a SS by tomorrow night. Maybe another starting pitcher, too.

    If Seager signs with the Rangers here, Correa pretty much a lock to go to Dodgers.

    LAD has Trea Turner at SS. If they're letting Seager walk, it's because of that.

    why do all the writers have LA as possible landing spot for Correa then?

    I haven't really seen that. Maybe they go after him. I just kind of doubt it. They traded a lot for Turner last year, and Turner's about to go into his FA season. I don't think he's going to have any interest in playing anywhere but SS.

    I could see the Angels jumping in for Correa before the Dodgers, but who knows.

    Angels and signing another high priced positional player instead of pitching…Correa makes complete sense to Angels

    People are saying Seager will sign somewhere today, so if he goes to the Rangers, that would be something.

    The Baez rumors over the weekend have made me decide I want Seager, so it would be really cool if somehow that breaking news happened today and it was us.

    I have no clue what to think of Ray going forward. Happy for him getting his $$, but I'm also happy we weren't the ones banking 5 years on that one season.
