P Conner Greene signed a minors deal with the Orioles. I was surprised he is still active.December 7, 2020 at 1:34 pm #148963December 7, 2020 at 2:57 pm #148970December 7, 2020 at 4:01 pm #148977bicyclemikeModeratorPaid - Annual
Richie “Dick” Allen was one of my favorites from my youthful days. I never liked the deal we did trading him away for Ted Sizemore, as that smacked of the infamous “Colavito/Kuenn” deal of a decade before.
When you think “what if”, the ‘72 Cardinals were a sub-.500 team while former members won the NL Cy Young (Steve Carlton) and AL MVP (Allen).December 7, 2020 at 10:59 pm #149001
Right-hander Lance Lynn has been traded to the Chicago White Sox, sources tell ESPN.

Looks like the return for Lynn is Dane Dunning and a lefty prospect. Seems like a good deal for the White Sox.December 8, 2020 at 7:35 am #149008
There’s a good baseball trade. Lynn as a rental fits with a contender and Dunning is better off with the Rangers rebuilding because they have the playing time to commit to his development.December 8, 2020 at 7:46 am #149010
0.8 difference, pretty closeDecember 8, 2020 at 7:50 am #149011
Lynn has just one season remaining on his contract, so this is a win-now deal.
Interesting story how Lynn threatened to opt out last season if he was traded to a team for which did not want to pitch.
The reason the Rangers waited to trade Lance Lynn. https://t.co/r9WVe86M1x

Yep, win now, and I’ll never bash a club for upgrading if they are legitimately in that position. Dunning actually started game 3 in the CWS wild card series (2020).
I’ll call Lynn their current ace, so how do they not pull that trigger? CWS fans should love this “virtual” acquisition 🙂December 8, 2020 at 8:21 am #149015
2020 AL Cy Young voting:
Keuchel CYA-5 (CWS)
Lynn CYA-6 (TEX)
Giolito CYA-7 (CWS)
pretty good!December 8, 2020 at 9:55 am #149028
The White Sox are absolutely loaded. There is no reason they shouldn’t win the AL Central.December 9, 2020 at 1:04 pm #149169
Dominic Leone signed by the Giants to a minor league deal.December 14, 2020 at 7:42 am #149476
In 2020, @DanielDescalso reached 10 years of Major League Service.
Throughout his decade long career, he’s been a World Series champion & a reliable ball player.

Reliever Greg Holland has signed a one-year, $2.75 million deal with the Kansas City Royals, sources tell ESPN. He’ll return to a bullpen that with Josh Staumont and Scott Barlow has a chance to be really good.

Ellis. 28, first joined the #stlcards in the Jaime Garcia trade with AtL four years ago. He pitched in AA and AAA before being taken in the 2018 Rule 5 draft by TEX, then traded to KC and returned to the Cardinals in April 2019. He was released in May 2020. https://t.co/SEcm6nOCPk

Of all those who left with Luhnow, Brent Strom may have been the biggest loss. This article looks into his influences, with considerable focus on his lieutenant with the Cardinals, minor league pitching coordinator Tim Leveque.December 18, 2020 at 9:24 am #149815December 18, 2020 at 9:51 am #149819
Two former Cardinals catchers signed minor league deals for 2021 – Jose Godoy with Seattle and Francisco Pena with Oakland.December 18, 2020 at 10:03 am #149823
Looking forward to seeing Wacha put up his career best ERA and Ks with Tampa next year.
