Seth Lugo will have surgery for bone spurs in his throwing shoulder. He will not be game ready until well into the season.

Mets sign Kevin Pillar. Good bat but declining defense. Hello LF.

Don’t want to wish bad luck on anyone but this won’t help the Mets.

Naming rights for Marlins Park has been sold to a mortgage company called loanDepot. Yes, that begins with a lowercase L. But that's not the headline here: the headline is that the park is going to be officially referred to as "loanDepot park" - that's right they are going to spell park with a lowercase p despite being a proper noun.

Not good for us.
Meh.
Good player but 102 OPS+ last season. And you never know with injuries.

I can't see this turning out to be a good contract.   I can't see him being an above average short stop for the last half of that contract.

Yea. A 102 OPS+ is amusing.

I think signing an OF for 13 years makes more sense than a SS for 10 years.  The owner is rich but at some point they have a budget also.

Lindor generates a lot more of his value from defense than the great SS generation of A-Rod, Jeter, Garciaparra, and Tejada.  He needs to stick at SS until he's 34 or so and play well to make this an OK deal.  As for Turner, the Nats weren't signing him this year, so the real market will be more set by the group of contracts that Seager, Story, etc... sign rather than this one alone. Also, let's see what the next collective bargaining agreement does.  To me, this looks like Cohen not being risk averse.

Whats amusing is your lack of understanding. Dude is a 117 career OPS+ He is in the prime of what looks to be a hall of fame career.

And you're bringing up a 60 game sample size

Just happens to be the latest 60 game sample. Let’s see how he does in the pressure cooker of NYC. Many a free agent has faltered there.

Lindor is already better than Tejada. Jeter's career wRC+ is 119, while Lindor is 117.

Lindor has had 30+ home run seasons in 3 out of the last 4 seasons. Not sure why anyone is trying to play him off as some sort of slap hitting, defensive first shortstop. He's not.

compare his offensive numbers by age through age 27 to that '90s group. He's well below all of them.  If you want to call him a plus bat, I'm going to say you are a smart man, but his D along with his O is what makes his case.  I'll take Story's bat going forward, but he doesn't give you the D.  If they are both 3rd basemen in 6 years, Story will have higher value at that time, but I'll guess Lindor stays at SS 3-4 years longer than Story.  

Note- edited to remove stupid point. Story's defense is fine.  Seager is closer to an average fielder with a bigger bat
