This move reminds me of what Stearns did several years ago (2016 or 2017 maybe?) when he signed a few discounted veterans late in the free agent season and then traded them off for prospects in July.

Is 7m for Sanchez a discount?

I think so. Being only a 1 year deal most likely means it's pretty low risk.

Keith Law has the brewers as the #2 farm system in baseball, behind only the Orioles.

Will be watching how the pitchers develop.  Have infielders galore.

Hall, Gasser, and Misiorowski could all become stars - or they could just become #4 or #5 starters. One or two could even end up in the pen.

Bad news is that all 5 Central teams are in the top half of farm systems right now.

I trust them to develop arms

Woody back on a 2 year deal is nice. I’d imagine it can’t be very big money. High upside, but shoulder injuries are definitely the worst injuries for pitchers.

Tell me about Hiura and Canha.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Hiura was awesome until the Brewers tried to change his launch angle and now he can’t hit anything at the major league level. He’s a 4A player. Rakes in the minors. Ks and roll over grounders in the majors. Rickie Weeks 2.0.

Dominic Smith. David Peralta. 

Cubs not letting Sox corner the market on mediocrity.

Yesterday, Ricketts said they haven’t started negotiations with Bellinger.

Has anyone checked the water in Chicago?

Did he stop hitting cause the Brewers changed his swing? Or did MLB pitching just figure him out.

Anyone ever been to Spring Training in Clearwater?

Never been big into Spring Training, but seeing as the Phillies are less than 15 min away, I was considering heading over the once or twice.  It will be cooler when my son is a bit older and able to appreciate it, but still interesting
