Hosmer scares the pee out of me. He's not likely to immediately be James Shields v2.0, but the back half of a six year deal could be ugly as homemade sin. There are a LOT of 4-3 groundouts in his future. Maybe that's the Ohtani hangover talking.

            Am i crazy to be hoping for Machado? I just cant understand the Hosmer thing. And this Headley arbitrage thing seems weird but I suppose I'll reserve judgment to see where they land. Shades of 2014,... more

              I mean, I can admit I've thought that they should be saving their money for Machado anyway. But, come on now....there's no 400MM contract that they're capable of doing. Mark
