That's a good team.  NL East is a bear.

Nats could go get Keuchel, now. Philly, Kimbrel. Those are moves that each can afford, and would be very beneficial to each team. We will see what happens.

Just took a look at the Sox schedule, they open the seaon with 11 road games (West coast).

Preseason whining is bad form.

No whining-just a fact of which I just became aware.

The Sox open the season on the road for their first 11 games.

Harper gets bakers dozen with the Phillies.

13/330 no opt outs.

According to Jeff Passan

"Bryce Harper’s deal with the Philadelphia Phillies will be for $330 million, a new record for overall dollars, topping the $325 million of Giancarlo Stanton, league sources tell ESPN."

whether this is "stupid money" remains to be seen.
What is the over/under for the date the first D Battery is thrown at him by Phillies fans?

Still smarting from Thome going to Philly, I see.

Sad.

Is that where he went? I remember him jumping to a shitty team somewhere, but we replaced him with Pronk, so that was ok.

1948 is the last time the Cleveland Racists won the World Series.

You could look it up. That's 71 years ago. 71 long years. Why, you could live your whole live in northern Ohio or southern Michigan and never see that banner go up, or have that parade; if you call living in northern Ohio or southern Michigan a life.

Of course, it was the first openly gay baseball team to win a Series, so that's a bit of unknown history for most of you Cleveland sports buffs.



 


That's Larry Doby on the right, who was Billy Bean before Billy Bean. 

1948

Guess that's why Chief Wahoo is truly red-faced.

A dumb-ass deal.  He turned down 300 over 10 years for this?  180 over 4 years for this??

Supposedly it is his dlgoal to finish his career with one team. Though I suspect Phillie fan may get him to change his mind.

Its a bad deal for Bryce unless he plans to just get lazy and stop trying.   Then it's a great deal for Bryce.  Bad deal for the Philistines.

No. They get  a left handed power hitter in the second most friendly to lefties stadium in the Bigs, they keep the luxury tax down, and they still have the flexibility to add Trout in two years, or whatever pitching they need as the season(s) unfold. 



I think it's a good deal for all sides. Including Boras.

One thing it does, too, is show how the Wilpons continue to stand in the way of the Mets.

Yeah. Bad deal for the Phillies:Before the Bryce Harper news broke yesterday, the #Phillies had sold roughly 200,000 more tickets than at this same point last year. They have sold about 100,000 tickets since, #Phillies senior VP of ticket operations John Weber said. Hard to say, but it might be a 1-day record.

a little early for me to declare a 13 year deal good or bad, but it seems the Phillies have secured their future DH
