he just opted out of 4 years. He’s getting at least 5 imo.
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.
Moustakas gets 4 years, $64 million from the Reds. Good on him
Thanks for the last 2 years, Mous
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

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.
I hear you, man.
It is what it is.
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.
They could make a serious run at 4th place in the NL East......
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.
There’s going to be some expensive Cole in some teams stocking this Xmas.....
He's going to make Price's deal look like pocket change.
Cole Hamels is an Atlanta Brave.
No such thing as a bad one year deal, but I hope we still get MadBum
Coming faster now.
Zack Wheeler to the Phillies, 5 years, somewhere north of $100M
