So the Barves just went out and made the first move on a big name free agent for this offseason, signing Josh Donaldson — The Bringer of Rain — to a one-year, $23 million make-good contract. I suspect that our beloved Prof will be on-board with this move.
Check out the following post on MLB.com, where Will Leitch lays out seven take-aways from this signing, from how it affects the Barves’ chances in the 2019 post-season, to how it affects other NL East teams (especially the Nats and Phillies), as well as other free agents (from Harper to Moose).
All I will say is that Freddy Freeman has to be ecstatic at having Donaldson potentially batting behind him in the lineup. As the title of this post says, I expect to see some rain being brought down in Georgia next season.
