Sox re-up Mitchy 2-bags for 2 years.

So out on Hosmer.

Still need a middle of the order bat.

Hosmer's girlfriend will be sad, but it simplifies things.

Zach Britton tears achilles during a workout

Out at least 6 months.

Some of these guys go too hard with the offseason stuff.

http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/rays/2017/12/20/tampa-bay-rays-trade-franchise-cornerstone-evan-longoria-to-giants/

The Rays have been reluctant to deal Longoria because of his talent, leadership and the commitment he has shown to them, twice signing long-term, below-market deals.

But they changed their thinking this off-season with the opportunity to shed his $13.5 million salary for 2018, and the overall $86 million he is guaranteed, with a 2023 option pushing the total to $94 million, as part of an effort to trim payroll.

An additional factor is that in April, by having 10 years in the majors and at least five with the same team, Longoria will gain no-trade rights, which the Rays refuse to agree to include in contracts because it limits their flexibility.

Carlos Santana says Phils "believe me"

I think he meant believed IN me. 

This would indicate Mets did not really go hard sell after Big C.  Typical Alderson.  He will take the same path with Adrian Gonzales, who may be the better value if we can get him

Meanwhile, this guy thinks Sox should have nabbed Santana - and was saying NYET to Hosmer definitively

Before they showed us the Mo'ne (Davis), there was Peanut Johnson:

The police don't care when you rob from each other, but when you start robbing white folks---another creative excuse for a lawsuit:

No one wants to sue the police, we just don’t want to be preemptively treated as criminal in our own neighborhood.

I’m sure you can understand that...
