    Looking forward to seeing Ohtani, more young players coming through, and the Orioles imploding.

    Here's to an exciting year of baseball!

    I don't care what happens this year as long as Boston and Baltimore fail.

    Is there anyway to get Juan Soto and Carter Kieboom from the Nationals? Can we catch them in a "win now" mode before Harper leaves via free agency? Would that be the type of package we'd want for Osuna?

    SD has reportedly offered Hosmer a 7 year deal. Yikes.

    A.J. Preller can draft and scout with the best of them, but the man is clueless when it comes to assessing major league talent for some reason.

    Even if they think they can get a discount on their annual balance sheet by offering an extra year or two - just a bad move. There are way more sensible options whether it be other 1B's or sticking with the one they have.

    He's the anti-J.P. Riccardi

    A first basemen with a career 111 wRC+ is going to get $200M. This can't possibly go wrong.

    That's absurd. I actually really like him at 4 years. He's a good hitter who pounds the ball in to the ground. If you could get him on board with the flyball revolution he could become elite. But there's a chance that never happens and 7 years is just way too long for him.

    Who are the Padres even bidding against? There's no market for Hosmer. If they really want him, he can be had a on 5 year deal.

    Also this would mean Wil Myers back to the OF. That'll make for some fun highlights.

    Themselves, like the M's... extra years just to get him to sign, where he likely doesn't want to.

    Matt Adams signed for like 1 year/4 million and is like the same hitter.
