I have little doubt that he will be a stud player for us.
I am imagining all of those stolen bases and the hit and runs that score from second.

It is going to be awesome.

I guess they finally got off the fence and realized that the AL East is primed for the taking.

The O's are known for shopping for bargains and making moves at the end of free agency.

They have a below average farm system and have serious holes at the corner outfield spots and in their starting rotation.

Since they're not in rebuild mode, it makes no sense for them to head into the season at status quo since most of their top pieces, Adam Jones, Chris Davis, Matt Wieters, Zach Britton, are in their prime now and they are probably No. 4 or 5 on paper in the division at this point.

From ESPN Mets reporter Adam Rubin:

"Jenrry Mejia is the first major or minor league player to ever receive a permanent suspension under MLB's drug-testing program."

I am curious to see how Chapman's time with NYY plays out. From the arbitration settlement I would guess that they plan on using him for one year and then taking the comp pick.

I hope he has a stellar season and we re-sign him. Always wanted him to be a Yankee.
Though the domestic violence allegations are disturbing.

I hate this. What in the world would Ian Desmond bring to this team, other than a contract with money that could be spent elsewhere? So, let's say he takes them from 70 wins to 74 wins - what's the point?

Even if we completely overperform this season, we're still in the best division in baseball. I would rather take our lumps, and put away the money for next season.

Really liked having him on the Mets last year. Great clubhouse guy and still a good ballplayer.
