Today, we see a manager get introduced, a star getting rumored to be moved and that’s about it. We really need live baseball, friends.
- Since Kris Bryant seems to be the hottest name around Phillies’ Twitter, one article looked at whether the team even has enough to make a move.
- The Astros introduced Dusty Baker yesterday and boy what a press conference. The game missed that guy.
- Jordy Mercer is headed back to Detroit on a minor league deal.
- Wei Yin-Chen is going to Seattle to provide some pitching depth on a team that sorely needs it.
- The Reds continued adding, getting Pedro Strop on a one year deal to help provide reinforcements to their bullpen.
- The Mookie Betts sweepstakes look like they are coming to a conclusion. Two reports yesterday - one from The Athletic’s ($) Andy McCullough and another from Alex Speier - seem to indicate that a deal could be coming soon. Imagine trading away the second best player in the game. Just imagine that.
