Here is a breakdown of what happened so far with all the Qualifying Offers and draft picks. The Angels lost their second highest draft pick plus $500,000 in international signing pool money when they signed Noah Syndergaard.
The Red Sox have finalized their coaching staff. I think the Angels still might have a vacancy or two. The Padres have also finalized their coaching staff. Finally, it looks like Mark Kotsay will be the new field manager for the Oakland Athletics.
The lockout drags on. There was a meeting last Thursday, but it doesn’t seem like they got very much done.
Left handed pitcher Andrew Suarez signed with the Yakult Swallows while right handed pitcher Colin Rea signed with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. If all the marginal pitchers go to Japan who is Perry going to sign? Gregory Polanco might also go to Japan.
Have you ever seen an umpire get ejected from a game?
This outfielder is nuts as far as I am concerned.
I’m not exactly sure what this guy was thinking.
