    If they say he's signing by the end of the week, he'd have to reject (or sign) today.

    The leaks and rumors certainly have picked up... wonder which side that's coming from.

    What passes for baseball reporting these days in a nuthsell:
    So, all that geographical preference is... bullshit? Got it.

    Reading the rumor mill it sure seems like Verlander was intent on having firm offers in hand before the QO deadline. Probably smart. I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t sign before Thanksgiving.

    If the Yankees 2 years- 23-25 million/year… up to 30 with incentives…. Opt out after 1 year… deal is presumed to be true, I’d say that’s probably the best possible offer he could have. He should thank the Angels for that signing yesterday that basically re-adjusted his market overnight.

    Peter Gammons' tweet is... intriguing. I hope that comp pick becomes a HOFer.

    Let's get Kershaw.

    Sounds like crickets from The Astros so far. Gives the impression that Verlander was never in their plans, and that both sides have known this for a while

    More Yankees tears - I love it!

    Let's hope we can keep Correa too. I don't want him going to the Yankees.

    1 year, 25 mill, per Berman.

    Includes a player option for a 2nd year.
