    Well we needed it to get under the luxury tax threshold. This entire time, I'm convinced that we're going to go after him next offseason, a la Chapman with the Yankees a few years ago

    I am not convinced that we are going to go after him, and I really hope that we don't. Unless we can get him for about half of what he is asking for in both $ and years.

    I'm not convinced either. I don't think Henry hired Bloom to act like Dombrowski.

    And the news on Sale can't be doing much for Henry's opinion of big contracts.

    I Betts only gets 6/90, the economy has completely collapsed or Mookie has a serious health concern.

    But if the economy has collapsed and Mookie signs here for 6/90 then ticket prices will go down..... won't they?

    Hi everyone! With baseball on hiatus, we are going to use @ootpbaseball to run a simulation of the 2020 season and post the stats on a special section of our site so you can follow along! However, there are a couple logistical Qs about trades & FAs that we need YOUR HELP deciding


    Anyone else ever use Out of the Park Baseball?

    The team's Instagram page shared a nice video that I put on my story, and the MLB sent out two very well put together videos

    Agreed. I don't think Henry is looking to hand out any more large contracts.

    MLB.TV has opened up its archive of games from 2018 and 2019, including all postseason games.

    For anyone really jonesing for baseball, you can watch any of those games for free.
