They're kinda out of options at 3rd, so Youk coming back is probably the right move.

There were talks of them being interested in Jarrod Saltalamacchia. I don't really see any point of that. You can get a sub .300 OBP and around 20 homers out of Flowers, IMO.

Not to mention Saltamacchia is coming off a very poor year defensively

Everytime I saw the Redsox he was screwing up with an error or passed ball

Rangers offered Mike Olt for Andrelton Simmons... and the Braves turned it down. Pretty stupid of them, IMO.... but I'm a huge Olt fan.

Good signing. Pretty good pitcher, coming off of TJ surgery, low risk guy you can flip in July if he pitches well. Maholm part 2.

1 year, $5.5 mil with incentive that can add $1.5 mil to the contract.

I don't love Olt, but I don't love Simmons either. Simmons showed some nice stuff during the season though.

They were trying to get Simmons because the D-backs want him for Upton.

Yup, and they don't want to give up Andrus or Profar. Agree on Profar, not on Andrus.

Marlins fire sale is on in full force. Buehrle, Johnson, and Reyes to Toronto for Escobar and Hechavarria.

What a joke of a franchise.

Hey, Steve and Bill are diehard Panthers fans.

And the Leafs board is amazing right now.

Well, if they get Gose, Niccolino, and D'Arnaud plus all that cash, it's not a bad deal at all considering how much money was tied up there.

That trade is absolutely pathetic ,, MLB should have a backbone and block it

Marlins payroll drops from 100M ovening day to now 16M pre arbitration ,, After all the money they robbed Miami voters of with false promises of spending and competiting
