    There were rumors of Jackie Bradley Jr. being on the trade block, but DD says otherwise. DD says they're still looking for a 1B/DH bat.

    Manny Machado would be the icing on the cake. Would be a historic Yankees lineup.

    Headley was moved, you have to think to get Machado. The Yankees get Machado they have another dynasty on their hands IMO.

    Wouldn't a Sabathia ornament bring the tree down?

    Probably, and yeah, that is from 2016.

    Apparently the Cardinals are after Donaldson. I think the Blue Jays have to consider trading him. Sure Donaldson's a good player but trade him now as 2018 looks to be a down year for Toronto.

    please no, I don't want to see one of my favorite players wear a Cardinals uniform. :(

    Yep same here. Just need to find a 5th starter unless Jordan improves this winter

    Montgomery is better than most team's #4/5 starters IMO. The only issue I see with him is he needs to pitch deeper in games, but the peripherals look pretty solid (8.3 K/9, 3.0 BB/9, 4.07 FIP, 4.45 xFIP). Steamer projects him to have a 4.42 ERA and 2.1 WAR.

    Surprising

    Red Sox bring back Mitch Moreland for 2 years

    Wonder if they are out now on Hosmer

    Must be. Certainly a much cheaper alternative. Gotta get JD Martinez now and hopefully DH him while getting rid of Hanley to avoid his 2019 option vesting.

    Literally the cheapest 1b free agent alternative out there. Wasn't even on the top 50 list of MLBTR. (Although they probably could have gotten Duda cheaper).

    Steamer projections predict a bit of a rebound for Moreland and some regression from Hosmer.

    I'm definitely not disappointed about Hosmer. Just thought a run at Logan Morrison might have been worthwhile.
