    I've been reading rumors that the Yankees may have a good chance of landing Machado. You already got Sanchez, Stanton, Judge and Gregorius, that's a dangerous lineup if they sign him this offseason.

    They’ll lose the wildcard.

    I think every award was correct this year.

    You maybe right, if Boston were to retain all of their roster for 2019. I would love to see the Yankees lose because they are so overrated.

    I don't think Machado puts NYY over the top. It's going to come down to the rotations again. Paxton is good and really fits the mold of that team. They don't need him throwing 180 innings with that bullpen. But it really depends on what else happens this off-season.

    I didn't even read any news anywhere, but it seems like it's official that the Miami Marlins is changing their look for 2019.

    Here's the team logo and cap insignia:



    Here's the video showing snippets of the new uniforms:



    I think the logo sort of resembles a minor league baseball team. The look of the uniforms almost looks unchanged but the wordmark of Miami and Marlins. I don't know whether to call it a upgrade or not, because it's not gonna make their team better anytime soon.

    I think the logo is fine but the uniforms are atrocious.

    Machado has literally admitted that hustling isn't a part of his game. I get he's a great talent, but if I was a GM, there is no way I could ever give him a 8+ year contract worth $200-$400 million.

    His production is still elite. It's just bad optics with what he said and how he acted in the postseason. There will always be primadonnas but you have to weigh the production vs the headache. I think you give him a deal in line with what is projected with some early opt outs and hope he gives you there elite seasons and then leaves. Especially if he's hellbent on playing SS.

    Adrian Beltre retired after 21 season.

    A top talent, probably HOF bound.

    I think right after the season. They either moved it or are planning to because it's supposedly going outside the stadium.

    Josh Donaldson signed a one year contract with the Atlanta Braves. Brian McCann is also going back to Atlanta.

    I like the deal with Donaldson, and it didn't cost them a lot of money. $23 million is how much he's getting paid. I really hope his calf injury is behind him.

    As for McCann, It's great to see him back with the Bravos after his worst season yet with the Astros. He'll feel well rejuvenated now with a stellar lineup behind him. This is shaping up to be a promising upcoming season for them, if they keep making smart moves like they did today.

    Amazing deal. It's a lot of money on the surface but it's a low risk move with crazy upside. If he gets injured again or bombs they can slide Camargo back in. Camargo has been outperforming his peripherals so there's a really good chance he crashes back to Earth hard.

    If Donaldson goes out and crushes we get to offer the QO and get back a draft pick.

    McCann coming back is fun more than anything. For 2Million it's another low risk move. I don't feel like he's better than Kurt Suzuki offensively at this point but his bat should play well at STP and I feel being around Freddie and Snit again might unlock some hidden juice. I'm fine with Mac and Flowers in a platoon and prefer that over unloading the farm for Realmuto.

    So is that Mariners/Mets trade official yet? I looked it up and sometimes places say it’s a done deal and some don’t.

    If it is what a crazy trade. Diaz and Cano to the Mets.
