We made it folks. We made it to the weekend. It’s just like 2019 to make it’s New Year’s Eve on a Tuesday so that we can have two days of work before heading into the weekend. IT’s tough this time of year. Not much happening, but yesterday there were some interesting tidbits to digest.
- Corey Seidman looks at the pitching staff and how, after the money that has been plowed into it, it still looks the way it does.
- Will Josh Donaldson determine who is the favorite in the NL East?
- As always, take a look around The Good Phight at the different pieces we have for you.
- The trend of locking up players before they even set foot in the majors continued yesterday, as White Sox wunderkind Luis Robert locked in his arbitration years with a 6 year/$50 million contract that also includes two club option years.
- The Nationals continued using the money earmarked for Anthony Rendon to strengthen their bullpen, signing Will Harris to a 3 year/$24 million contract. I wouldn’t lose too much sleep on this one, folks.
- Yankees right-hander Domingo German was suspended for the first 63 games of the season after an investigation into a domestic violence allegation.
- You know what’s a smart thing to do? Seeking a trade partner for your best player! Apparently, the Dodgers have inquired about the availability of Mookie Betts, with some whispers that the team could take on David Price as well.
- Josh Donaldson might be getting the four year deal he wants.
