So much and so little happening. Not really enough for posts on their own, but too much to ignore. So for the next few days, let’s discuss it all here.
Also, here’s some music to get you through the day:
The big news is that the Feesh are having a fire sale so magnificent that Houston and Chicago are saying they’ve gone too far. This takes tanking to a whole new low. Poor Christian Yelich is probably wandering around the desert looking for another human soul. Jeter, please take pity on this poor Pete Davidson look-alike and trade him.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals did something really amazing and touching. And you guys know if I’m saying this, it must really be something. They traded Stephen Piscotty to the Athletics. Now, on the surface that’s nothing too special. But… Piscotty’s from the Bay Area, and his mother was recently diagnosed with ALS. Piscotty is very close to his mother and had been trying to figure out a way to help take care of her. The Cardinals, in a display of beautiful humanity, traded him to a hometown team to allow him to do just that. Huge respect to the St. Louis organization for reminding us that sometimes teams do good things because they actually care about the player and not just the bottom line.
The Cubs are out here signing every reliever and fourth man on the market – Tyler Chatwood, Brandon Morrow, and Drew Smyly.
Fernando Rodney is taking the show on the road to Happy’s neck of the woods.
Ohtani shocked us all by signing with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Orange County, California, United States, North America, Milky Way Galaxy. Then we were all shocked again when it was revealed that he has a partial UCL tear.
The Dbacks are shopping my boy Zack Greinke?????? Why?
Let’s discuss, fam.
