Good morning and happy hump day, baseball fans!

Here’s a roundup of what’s going on in the National League East.

  • The Rangers are the latest to join the long list on teams interested in Jose Quintana.
  • Oh, and the Pirates too. The last time I’ve seen large groups of men zero in on someone with such intensity was a season of The Bachelorette.
  • Speaking of highly sought after players this offseason, Cleveland is being fantastically extra to get Edwin Encarnacion on their roster.
  • On the other side of the spectrum...if you’ve ever been rejected over and over again by various people, you now know what it’s like to be Ryan Braun.
  • We’re not gonna lie, this winter’s stove is less than piping. So what needs to go down to get the temperature up? These trades.
