Here’s a week with more good than bad!
From Terry Pluto:
According to the L.A. Times, Puig turned down a $10 million offer for one year from a National League team. When a player has a questionable attitude, most teams prefer to pass. With the virus issues, who knows where he’ll play, but it won’t be in Cleveland.
The other factor is when Terry Francona thinks the guy isn’t worth the trouble, that sends a message to other teams. Francona never said it publicly, but it’s obvious the Indians were underwhelmed by Puig. There is a reason he was unsigned 10 days before the season was set to open.
Around the League

- If 2020 season is cancelled, which teams would hurt the most
- Minor league owners are at a tipping point
- Joey Gallo’s quarantine batting practice probably bothers his neighbors
