Phillies got Zack Wheeler pretty happy about that. The Pitching Rotation was terrible last Season he'll make it better for sure. Get another Pitcher or two and a good hitter and we'll be contenting hopefully.
Red Sox have traded Mookie Betts and David Price to the Dodgers for a bunch of peanuts. It’s crazy that they ended up making a payroll cutting move, all because they opted not to spend the money re-signing Mookie. Boston is normally a big spender, and this move is the kind of thing you’d expect from a small market team like the Rays.
Recently released Mets player Andrew Church has harsh words for his former team: "They knew I would never say no to competing and would fly me around to fill in for anyone that got injured. I realized this wasn't in my best interest when my delayed flight finally landed in the 3rd inning, and I was on the mound in a Triple-A game for the first time, without any warm up throws. My UCL originally tore that night. Instead of seeing doctors like I asked, they sent me back to High A to pitch in the playoffs."
Church goes on to state, "I hadn't pitched in a competitive game in over a year, but they needed a filler because someone got hurt the night before. I took a red eye flight, to one stadium, a seven hour bus trip, another flight, and a taxi to the stadium I would be pitching in. Again, I was in a Triple-A game with no worry about my well being."
Well, baseball is officially coming back with a 60 game season. I’m glad they finally got a deal done. Some players are declining to participate though. David Price is the biggest name that I’ve seen back out so far.
