And Bryce goes to Philly. A weird 13 year, 330M no opt-out deal.

Really don't get this for either side. Is it really worth saving a few bucks per year to have Bryce at 39? And why did Bryce take less AAV than Manny?

I feel like something like the Manny deal: 10 years, 300M would've made more sense.

Nolan re-upped for what I assume will be the remainder of his career. That's all I care about--the Greatest Rockie of All Time stays put.

There IS, however, an opt-out clause built in, but I think only Nolan can trigger it, which I suppose puts Rox management on notice to have their shit together AT LEAST by then, if not this upcoming season.

Gerardo Parra is a good guy to have in the clubhouse, if nothing else he'll keep things light in there.


Giants brass and fans are kinda excited he's on board, which maybe stems from their unsexy offseason, but he's drawing rave reviews for his arm and has decent speed and defence. With no hope of hitting homers at home, Parra can hopefully keep his typically high BABIP up and spray some doubles in the gaps.

If he matches his .340 OBP of the last two seasons, steals 12 bases, keeps his K% around the 15% mark (very doable for him), he won't be that much of a black hole offensively for them, even if the main stats are less than impressive.

Jays are working on implimenting a 50%+ pay increase across the board for their minor leaguers and that's awesome. Someone did the calculations and it's expected to cost less than 1M across the entire system and quite frankly they just paid $38M for Tulo to NOT play for them. Less than 3% of that money will make a massive difference for a ton of young ball players. Such a microscopic drop in the bucket that the stupid, short-sighted fucks at MLB actively lobby to prevent having to do.
