Unsolicited, sure.

Mets GM is fired over the sex-harassment texts.

"The Mets’ general manager, Jared Porter, was fired on Tuesday, just a month after being hired by the club. The swift decision came after the publication of an ESPN report on Monday night that claimed Porter sent over 60 unsolicited text messages, including one of a penis, to a female baseball reporter in 2016.

“We have terminated Jared Porter this morning,” Steven Cohen, the team’s owner, tweeted. “In my initial press conference I spoke about the importance of integrity and I meant it. There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”

I removed the Springer post, hasn't been confirmed by any of the usual MLB reporters yet.

Well,,

Morosi tweets: “Sources: #BlueJays now are the frontrunners to sign George Springer. @_bkuh_ and @RadioVendetta each have reported tonight that the Jays and Springer have a deal in place pending a physical exam. “

Him staying out of the NL and leaving the country appears optimal

Passan tweets that it's 6 years, $150 million.  Yeah, Rizzo wasn't going near that one.

Yates to the Blue Jay's. 1 year, 5.5 million, with 4.5 million in incentives

The Jays appear serious.  6 years is a long time for Springer.  But you have to overpay for the big name free agents.

Brantley to the Jays... I feel like he was the best hitter available this year.

Maybe they’ve got a sign system waiting to be deployed in the stadium McDonald’s

was maybe the OF we should have pursued.  and if Yates was $5.5MM, then we have to come up with Hand or Colome.

There was some risk with Yates.

Hand is the only option, as far as I'm concerned. Hes a lefty and he's elite. If you're going to saddle yourself with Lester and Ross, you have to have the ability to win games in which they barely go 5 innings. Hand does that.

Brantley actually re-signs with Houston on a two-year / $32 million deal.

Heyman says the Phillies are believed to be offering Realmuto 5 years at around $110 million.
