Mets and Cespedes agree to amended contract. Wonder what contract clause he violated that let the Mets lower the value. Union usually frowns on that.

Must be however he broke his ankle. Not all contract clauses are that terrible an action, like playing basketball. He might have something involving horses, especially while rehabbing his feet

Funny, Van Waggonner bioth negotiated the deal and rescinded it

Actually have over filled the rotation. Wacha (who signed first) wants to be a regular starter.

So, I it appears there will be another move, unless someone like Matz gets moved to the pen

Apparently penalty on Astros expected in next two weeks.

It's interesting that both teams have been very quiet this offseason, with rumors of Red Sox trying to trade David Price (and possibly Mookie Betts) and Astros trying to trade Correa.

All points to Alex Cora, on the Astros' bench in 2017, manager of Red Sox in 2018.

Some posters here will ignore his cheating and want him elected to the Hall of Fame for his managerial genius.

Take away all of their draft picks for a few seasons.
