    Pretty amazing to be able to do that with an off hand. Our analytics will show him how to utilize switch pitching and how he can be effective against any lineup.

    Pitch him before Keuchel. It will make Keuchel's fastball look blazing fast.

    I want Yu hands down more than any other pitcher. His stuff can be downright filthy.

    if it's about winning (based on last year), Yankees and Astros would be the top 2, then Cubs, Twins and Rangers.

    So do the Dodgers just have zero interest in bringing him back?

    He doesn't fit into their budget. Strange to say that, but....

    So, do we think this is a Cole or Darvish thing, or does it makes sense / reasonable, to acquire both?

    Wouldn't surprise me at all, Vegas boy going to LA makes perfect sense. I just know that they were admittedly trying to shed payroll this offseason.

    Harper or any number of free agents. Basically, they don't want every free agent costing them 50% more than every other team as a repeat luxury tax offender.

    I think Harper becomes a Cub and joins his BFF KB

    Thinking it'll come down to Astros and Cubs. Yankees would need to drop some salary, Dodgers are waiting for a lower price, Rangers are as well. Twins would probably have to pay a lot.
