    Fair number of on field incentives.
    Glad Buxton will be back, but they should have done something like $150k/game played.

      • The only thing it took to spur an actual fun hot stove off-season is a looming cripling labor strike by baseball.

        Ugh. Why do the sports I love (baseball/hockey) have to hurt me so badly?

          Max Scherzer’s deal with the Mets is done, per source. Three years, $130 million, an opt out after the second season.

              If he can keep his stuff together and deGrom comes back for a full year he might get another ring.

              We (Escobar, Canha, Marte, Scherzer) might not be done (Baez and/or Gausman). SAC is Honey Badger.

              Edit: Not Gausman (Toronto).

                      The Chicago teams and Milwaukee (and Cardinals to an extent) are hard to place. You’d have to break up some deep rivalries, both historic and geographic. Plus, with relocations and expansion cities up in the air, that adds a ton of other variables. Vegas and Montreal are expansion or relocation options, Raleigh/Charlotte, Nashville, and Portland are always thrown around for expansion.

                          But in my world there are no wild cards -- we go back to a single best-of-5 NLCS.

                          Since obvious they are money-grubbing pigs, we will wind up with top 2 in each division plus 2 wild cards, first round best-of-3 while the champ of each division gets a bye.

                              I think the idea is revenue sharing enable owners like Pittsburgh to cheap out because the other owners are paying them to be Little Sisters of the Poor.

                              If everybody has to sink or swim, the deadbeat owners are squeezed out and salaries will rise faster overall.

                              The players want an MLB owned by 32 SACs.
