There was actually a slew of news over the weekend thanks to some signings late on Friday and into Saturday. It could be a sign that with the season scheduled to start on time, perhaps owners are starting to feel a little more comfortable spending money because they believe there will be some fans in the stands. That has always seemed like the case with the lack of free agent signings. The losses from 2020 are done and over with, but if owners were not sure about the coming season, they’d be less likely to spend money as freely. If there have been signals from MLB that the greenlight on limited capacity stadiums will be given, maybe the owners will loosen the purse strings a little more.

Or not.

I don’t know.

On to the links.
