Huge thanks to the Braves for signing Josh Donaldson today. My fear of this off-season ending with us overpaying josh donaldson has been disposed of early!

  Any interest in signing this guy to take Shields' spot in the rotation?

Cubs pick up Johnny Field. Hunnie must be about ready to throw up.

Transactions:

11/20/18    Chicago Cubs sent RF Johnny Field outright to Iowa Cubs.



....so he's eligible for the Rule 5 draft on December 10th.

Some interesting names in the non-tender list.

Wouldnt mind taking a run at Boxberger, Owings, Schoop, Blake Parker, Shoemaker. Fiers, Tim Beckham.

Billy Hamilton also available but he's looking for a starting job and we have enough contact issues.

Re: the Robertson article.  When your guaranteed to make $23,000,000 over two years how much of an incentive is it to get an extra $50,000 for being al All Star?

Yanks sign Tulo and DJL, i think they are likely out on Machado at this point. If its between the Sox and Philly, I like our chances. Unless Harper signs somewhere soon and philly opens the checkbook wider for Machado.
