MLB news:

  • Juan Soto appears to be on the move from the Padres and the Yankees happen to be the winner of that sweepstakes. They are giving up a lot, but will this include an extension? We shall see...
  • Speaking of the Yankees, with waning interest in Ohtani, they have turned their attention to Japanese star and free agent, Yoshinobu Yamamoto. The bidding is already said to be intense as the superstar pitcher will eclipse over 300 million. Will it come down to the two New York teams in the bidding war?
  • It seems the entire off-season rides on where Shohei Ohtani lands to get the rest of free agency sorted out. According to some, that should happen before the weekend is out. Who do we think it will be? Dodgers? Giants? Cubs? Blue Jays? MYSTERY TEAM???
