Roberts telegraphed it a couple of days ago.  Then the story of the player giving up #17.    It was a long, convoluted process to end up at the logical destination.    All of the other deals should start happening now.

I assumed you would go with some xenophobia, too.  Sad.

I like that you ask somebody else what their comment has to do with the topic…when his comment was a response to you bringing up Hunter Biden in an MLB thread. Lol.

Wow I was hoping he’d pick the Cubs but glad they didn’t pay $700M for him.

Not to sound like a Change Bank commercial (great SNL skit if you haven’t seen it) but I think I’d rather spread out $700M amongst several players. Give me three $20M players and a $10M instead of putting all your eggs in one basket.

Good for him though for getting that money.  I wonder how much money Friday’s Blue Jays speculation added.

I just can’t get on board any joy for anyone getting a contract this obscene. 

But great to see the Dodgers finally get a free agency win, there’s that.

I would rather have a player (or players) get it than an owner pocketing it.

I do think concentrating that much into one player isn't the best way to build a team though.
