    You need Spring Training to work on your spelling.

    Lance “made out of paper” McCullers. Not sure he was worth his contract because he’s always injured.

    It isn't my spelling that is at issue, it is my typing

    In situations like this I blame my Eurapeein spell checker.

    My phone's auto corrector is horrible. It takes perfectly spelled words and turns them into unrecognizable words or changes them to the wrong word I have to watch it all the time.

    Bregman must be extended and retire an Astro.

    Altuve as well but he has to be open to a DH role.

    I generally think Harold Reynolds has horrible takes, though I agree with his picks other than Hunter Brown. I think Brown will get to 150Ks.

    Bregman signed his first extension after his 7.0 WAR season and before his 8.9 WAR season which was his last CC year. The extension covered his 3 arbitration years and his first 2 FA seasons. His FA values at that point were valued at $28.5M with the signing bonus evenly distributed boosting value to $30.5M.

    5 years (2025-2029; age 31-35) and $155M looks to be a good starting point for discussions. I'd definitely take the over, but not by a crazy amount. Maybe settle at 8 - $240M?

    I hope he kept most of his speed. That's a lot of weight in a half year

    It really threw me off at first when he said "the Mariners are better". I thought he meant better than the Astros and I thought he must have had a stroke or something. But then he said the Angels were better and the Rangers were better and I figured out what point he was making. I do think it is funny that he's so old school he just scoffs at the complete game count by Framber. And his cohost didn't even seem to understand the point he was making.
