    The Mets would have quite the glut of extra players with Lindor and Bryant on the left side. They also have Alonso and Smith who should be at 1B, Davis who can play 3B or LF, Nimmo, Conforto, and McNeil in the OF. Something would seem to have to give.

    The Cubs have put themselves in a tough spot. I fully expect Bryant to test Free Agency. The Cubs want top prospects for him. I am not sure there are many clubs that will be willing to part with a top prospect in return for one year of Bryant.

    “can play all 3 OF positions”
    laughable

    “at a fairly reasonable rate (~18-19M)”
    So now the equivalent to the Q-offer is a reasonable rate? Looks like Heyman is earning a paycheck.

    I guess some people can’t see through him, but based on social media reaction, Casino Jon is not well liked.

    Theo wasn’t gone long…

    Maybe he can start by fixing those “unfair” competitive balance draft picks! 😉

    Manfred had better be careful. He may be hiring his replacement.

    How blasphemous! Hiring a baseball man to run baseball could be disastrous!

    “The executives, like me, who have spent a lot of time using analytics and other measures to try to optimize individual and team performance have unwittingly had a negative impact on the aesthetic value of the game and the entertainment value of the game in some respects,” Epstein said when he resigned. Copy and paste from ABC Sports article.

    Maybe a light in the darkness. I can only hope.

    He is right, but he can say that now that he wears a different hat. Last month at this time, you can bet your bottom dollar he would have done anything and everything in his power to gain an edge, no matter how slight.

    I hope he can make progress, too, but he is one voice against the 30 who actually hold the power… Telling competitors to compete less is going to be a tough sell…

    Agreed, but the fact that they hired a guy who had just said that is reason to hope.

    I wonder if he thinks the price of a beer and dog has negatively impacted the fan experience.
