Re: MLB thread

So did this Freeman thing just come down to $$? I like Olson, but I'd definitely take Freeman over him.

My understanding it was contract length, 25 per was ok with Braves…I think the Braves were at 4 years, Freeman & Co were like At 6.

Freeman is 32

If you're into advanced stats, Olson was actually better last year. Or equal, and he is 4.5 years younger. In regards to pure baseball, Olson is probably the better long term bet, but it still sucks to lose FF though. But he will also probably make more money in less yeas.

Olson: .379 wOBA, .379 xwOBA, 146wRC+, and a WAR of 5.0.

Freeman: .379 wOBA, .416 xwOBA, 135wRC+, and a WAR of 4.5.

Re: MLB thread

Rizzo is back with the Yankees.

Looks like it's Dodgers vs. Dodgers for Freeman.

Re: MLB thread

Luke Jackson underwent an MRI recently, which revealed damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Not great. Jackson is expected to undergo further evaluation, but could ultimately be headed for Tommy John elbow reconstructive surgery. Regardless, he's going to be out for awhile. His absence is a significant blow to the Braves' bullpen depth. The 30-year-old righty posted a sparkling 1.98 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 70/29 K/BB ratio across 63 2/3 innings (71 appearances) last year.

This guy was a monster in the bullpen. Big loss

Forearm tightness is always Tommy John. I knew once that was announced his season was over. Don't delay it any further. Get the surgery done now.

Let's look at this from the Von Miller perspective.

He says it wasn't about the bread, but were the Rams offering him (up to) 120 million?

Note - he probably won't come close to that 120 mil because his cap hit in the third year of the deal jumps to 17 million - which is a ton to be paying a 34-35yo pass rusher who already has 160 NFL games under his belt at age 33.

Anyways this is the MLB thread - I'm guessing Freeman wanted to make a lot of money and also play for a title contender - guessing the Braves didn't want to match what the Dodgers were offering in terms of years or money.

Re: MLB thread

Have you guys heard about this device catchers will be using to thwart stealing pitch signs for this season? Pitchcom? Very surprised they're just rolling the news out on this right as the season starts...should be interesting.

I miss a true opening day with all 30 teams starting the season within a few hours of each other but totally stoked for the season.

Re: MLB thread

Even the Braves announcers got rings. Probably great for company morale, but a little weird IMO.

Hopefully they don't actually wear them around town.

Yup...hopefully they don't match the horrible start that the Orioles had in 1988
