    Trading one former highly regarded prospect who fell off for another, but Grisham struggled in the minors before having a big 2019 while Urias usually did great in the minors and struggled at the majors. The team needs another lefty bat which he brings but there needs to be a move or two with the OFers because they had too many of them already. Urias has more upside but it's not a guarantee that he(or Grisham) will reach his full potential. From the pitchers perspective they add a more experienced but still somewhat young RHP who at times looks great and at times looks bad for a younger LHP who....well same thing. The Padres shouldn't need Lauer with the amount of capable arms they have at the major and minor league levels. I thought they'd get more for Urias, like maybe use him in a trade for a TOR pitcher. Will he turn into a consistent batting title contender and make multiple all star games? It's possible, and with the Padres history wouldn't surprise me at all. We won't really know who benefited most from this trade for a few years. I hope this doesn't hurt their chances of signing FTJ to a longer contract, it seemed like he was good friends with Urias.

    The start of the 2020 Major League Baseball season is less than 4 months away, but it's never too early to begin planning.

    • Texas at Seattle
    • Kansas City at Chicago White Sox
    • Detroit at Cleveland
    • Boston at Toronto
    • N.Y. Yankees at Baltimore
    • Minnesota at Oakland
    • L.A. Angels at Houston
    • Washington at N.Y. Mets
    • San Francisco at L.A. Dodgers
    • St. Louis at Cincinnati
    • Atlanta at Arizona
    • Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee
    • Colorado at San Diego
    • Philadelphia at Miami
    • Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay
    Home openers for the remaining 15 teams:

    March 30

    • Kansas City at Detroit
    • Pittsburgh at Chicago Cubs
    March 31

    • L.A. Angels at Texas
    April 2

    • Chicago White Sox at Boston
    • Toronto at N.Y. Yankees
    • Seattle at Kansas City
    • Oakland at Minnesota

    MLB needs to get their shit together. You don't have openers in Chicago and Cleveland during March. Torture is illegal in most countries.

    Yeah, season starts a month to early. Should start around the last weekend of April. You'd have most of the cold weather out of the way at that point.

    No need to start it that late.
    They can still start in late March by having some of those east coast +/or mid west teams open their seasons in Florida, Texas, or Cali instead.

    Some of those teams should start installing retractable roofs..but then that of course takes away from the natural baseball aesthetic...so it's a catch-22.

    The Brewers are willing to trade Josh Hader for the right price.

    Villar to the Marlins for a minor league pitcher. He was arguably the best player on the Orioles, for whatever that is worth. Pretty good pickup for Miami.

    Reds are gonna make a serious push in the Central.

    I have zero doubt they can pass the Phillies in the standings.

    Per Ken Rosenthal, Zack Wheeler already has at least one offer north of $100M.

    Boggles the mind to think what Cole and Strasburg are looking at.
