The Major League Baseball offseason continues on today—and even though there were tweets a few days ago about teams hurrying to sign players because of the possibility of a work stoppage, nothing is really happening in terms of free agent signings. However, there is some news to report:
• Over in the Inferior League, Dave Roberts was the MOTY choice.
• The Tigers and Giants are discussing a JD Martinez trade. Music to our ears. Get that dude out of this division!
• Chris Sale could be headed to the Atlanta Braves (!?) which would seemingly weaken the AL Central even more in 2017. Great farm!
• Mike Montgomery "had nothing" when pitching the Cubs to their final World Series out. Which is totally fine, because you don't need anything in order to get out Michael Martinez. #MMMM
• Dave Cameron has picked 5 free agents that he thinks will get paid too much money by professional baseball teams this winter.
• Bench coach news! The Astros hired Alex Cora to be theirs.
