Happy Tuesday, everyone!
I approve of the Lindor Funko Pop. The “Pittsburgh Started It” shirt may seem a bit awkward at this point, however.
Around the league
- As indicated in the title of this article, the Indians did not, in fact, acquire Jonathan Villar. He instead went to the Marlins for *checks notes* Easton Lucas, a LHP in A-ball.
- James McCann got a hefty raise as well, signing a 1-year deal with the White Sox for $5.4 million.
- Mike Moustakas is headed to the Cincinnati Reds with a 4-year, $64 million contract.
- Jurickson Profar is headed to San Diego in exchange for catcher Austen Allen.
- The Cubs decided that, after two years of having domestic abuser Addison Russell on the team, it was time to move in a different direction.
- If Ryan Zimmerman can’t get a contract with the Nationals, he will likely retire.
