    Figure we could use a thread for random stuff not worthy of it's own thread.

    Some rumblings of Thor being available. One idea I saw floated out there, would a Syndergaard for Correa trade make sense for the Mets/Astros?

    Always a fun off season in baseball. Always good to follow the trade speculation, see who goes where in free agency and who gets into the Hall of Fame.

    For anyone who's interested here is a Hall of Fame tracker ran by Ryan Thibodeaux:

    Interesting on Cron,guy did good last season. Got to think if he's made available there'll be a bit of interest in him.

    The 2018 Cron release = The 2017 Corey Dickerson release.

    I said moment he was DA that he would be a Twin

    The obvious was made a reality today.

    Hypothetical, if the Yankees got Harper, is that the best 3, 4, 5 in our lifetime (on paper at least)?

    Trout, Hamilton, Pujols seemed incredible on paper and completely fizzled out.

    It'd be up there, I heard Goldschmidt possibly to the Phillies today as well. If they get him as well as Harper then that'd be a good lineup as well.

    that would be a lot of power with Hoskins/Goldschmidt/Harper.

    Corbin met with Yanks/Nats/Phils this week.

    Reportedly seeking a minimum of 6 years.

    He's coming off a fantastic year, but that seems like a hefty demand for a guy who also had an ERA north of 4 in 2016-17 with blah peripherals.

    He's young, left handed, and only getting better, and it appears he's got a bit of a bidding war started.

    I think he's gonna get it.

    There is significant momentum toward a deal that would send Robinson Cano and Edwin Díaz from the Seattle Mariners to the New York Mets, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. While they characterize a deal as not done yet, there is an increasing expectation a trade will get finished.

    Not sure how I feel about this. The price tag is obviously outrageous but I still believe he has some left in the tank. If they eat salary or they take enough back in return it may be doable.
