    Does anyone know if the posting fee counts against a team's payroll and the Balance tax?

    Yamamoto's posting fee could be around $40 million and was wondering how it would affect payroll like $4m a year for 10 years (assuming it's a 10-year deal)?

    No, that money goes to the Buffaloes of the NPB.

    Yerry De Los Santos looks very solid here in this video. Really nice fastball tail with nice command. Looks to be developing the slider and the change. Looks like a promising arm. Maybe a #3 starter.

    If you think for millisecond that MLB isnt watching all of this stuff extremely closely and needs a pitcher to let them know of anything that some random surgeons say, you're dreaming.

    Always knew sherzer was a whiny bitch. Velocity is way up last couple decades and guys like George Kirby/young pitchers in general are just softer. Itís the whole generation thatís the problem. Ungrateful.

    I guess I just noticed that you kept railing on for signing primarily shitty hitters to boost the offense lately that I may have gotten confused about what you wanted the team to do. Seriously, the last 3 signings I recall you advocating for were for the likes of the 3 I listed, including a passionate defense about signing Josh Donaldson. I don't know if Atkins can afford to take many if any gambles on unlikely bounceback candidates this offseason given the pressing need to add offense to the lineup. He's done a good job signing short term free agents of this nature but all of the guys he signed had typically experienced only one rough season, including the likes of Semien, Belt and Kiermaier.
    Lmao at your time zone response.

    If you've actually read through a lot of my other posts, I've been pretty active in discussions regarding offseason moves and have advocated for the Jays to target solid players like Juan Soto, Rhys Hoskins, Jorge Soler, Teo Hernandez, Paul Goldschmidt (if the Cards were selling), Pete Alonso, and I could go on. Heck, I'm even on the Ohtani train if Atkins could make it happen! But sure, I recently suggest some names to go after if they come cheap and who wouldn't be bad as last resorts, though I guess that outlines my top offseason targets in your eyes. Where did I say or suggest Atkins could afford to take all those gambles as well? Obviously the Jays aren't the Oakland A's, but I'm sure the Jays take a gamble on a bounce back candidate somewhere if they can't get their top targets. Again, you're trying to twist my words around in order to pick an argument for no reason to make yourself sound superior. All at 2AM on a weekend as well haha.

    It's a baseball forum FFS. I'm actually mentioning names and trade ideas to try and spark offseason discussion. You should go back and read a lot of my other posts to see that those names weren't the only names I have mentioned. But sure I recently comment on Joey Votto, or Josh Donaldson, or a non-tender candidate like Austin Meadows and suddenly those are my top targets for the offseason lol.

    Yeah I really don't bother any more with some of these guys. It's not worth it. They've made this message board insufferable at times and are the reason why we aren't getting new posters and why some posters have stopped posting as much as they have. It's good to have discussion and debate respectfully, but guys like Max love to just argue and act snobbish for the sake of it.

    Hall of Fame ballot was unveiled yesterday.

    Adrian Beltre leads the list. He should get in on the first ballot no questions asked!

    Will be interesting to see what happens with Joe Mauer down the road. If he makes his way into the HOF in a couple of years, should be a good sign for Russell Martin.

    Would be nice to see Beltran and Wagner get in this year or next. They're both close.

    Bautista eligible now for the first time. Can't believe he's been out of baseball for 5 years already.
