Subject: Why Giancarlo Stanton would choose to play for the Giants

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

My job today is to explain how the 2018 Giants won't be nearly as awful as they were in 2017. You might think that my reputation as a Giants fan with a history of explicit bias would hurt my ability to be impartial, and you'd be right. Just not in the way that you think. See, I had to watch 162

The Rays aren't going to get Shohei Ohtani or Gianacarlo Stanton. Stanton, the star slugger being shopped by the Marlins, was never under serious discussion by the Rays, given the $295-million remaining on his contract, and is said to be considering accepting a trade to the Cardinals or Giants, or

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

For years, the hype around Shohei Ohtani alone made in highly unlikely he'd ever end up a member of the Cincinnati Reds. As the two-way superstar emerged as a dominant force both on the mound and at the plate in Japan, it became easy to assume that when he ultimately made his way to the US and MLB

The Cardinals just added a starting pitcher who can eat reptiles as well as innings. And the team paid a premium for him, too — $15.5 million for two years, according to Yahoo! Sports. So, yes, Miles "The Lizard King" Mikolas should have a clear shot at the starting rotation at those dollars

Subject: Yankees would be wise to acquire Kyle Schwarber to fill DH role after missing out on Shohei Otani

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The Yankees wanted Shohei Otani mostly for his pitching, but they were also willing to let him hit as a DH when he wasn't on the mound, so his refusal to consider playing in the Bronx raises the question of who will get those at-bats. GM Brian Cashman could plan on dividing them up among his surplus
