  • Let’s get excited about the year Oakland is going to (hopefully) have!
  • The Rangers are having casual extension talks with Yu Darvish and Jonathan Lucroy, casually.
  • Baltimore is considering Pedro Alvarez.
  • Jose Bautista is in active discussions with the Blue Jays, so Toronto fans rejoice.
  • The 2016-2017 offseason hasn’t been the most exciting one we’ve seen. Here’s whose winning, whose losing, and those burning questions that no one can seem to answer.
  • Can someone just make a decision on Brian Dozier please.
  • Are the Braves heading for another rebuild?
  • If your favorite team is looking for a catcher, feel free to direct them to this Target bargain bin of guys who can kinda sorta play behind the plate.
