The Dombrowski news is still reverberating throughout the game. The New York market is worrying about it’ll affect their operations, the Phillies market still is wondering what to make of it and the free agency market waiting for what he’ll do. It’s an interesting thought process.

What questions does this raise? Was Realmuto never really a target? Did he want too much money or too many years or both? Why was he not signing on the line in New York?
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens!
