    Liverpool has been put up for sale by JH. Should have a little more spending money if it goes through.

    Mets stated they were prioritizing Diaz and Nimmo. Wonder if they are going to overpay Nimmo as well?

    My guess would be yes.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    Someone else might overpay the Mets overpay.
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?

    Possibly, but Steve Cohen seems like he wants to be the biggest wallet in the room these days...

    Yes, so maybe he signs Judge, instead!

    Will Cohen please go so far over the tax threshold that his penalties can pay what Henry will owe in taxes so Bloom can actually sign some good big leaguers this winter?

    He obviously couldn't announce that prior to the WS ending. Would be glorious if he did that.

    James Click, GM of the Astros parts ways with team.

    Wow! You win a WS and get offered a crappy 1 year deal.

    Rumor is David Sterns has long been coveted by Jim Crane.

    It seems like a Jerry Jones-Jimmy Johnson type of thing where the owner wanted more credit. Maybe it's a Texas thing.

    Or a “My male enhancement medication works better than yours” type of thing.

    And that was just something I never wanted to know about Jimmy Johnson…
