Some young MLB players are signing team-friendly contract extensions

What could it mean for some of the young Cubs core? While star players such as Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and Craig Kimbrel sit at home waiting for a 2019 (and beyond) contract, this happened earlier this week: The Philadelphia Phillies and starter Aaron Nola are in agreement on a four-year, $45 million deal that includes a club option for a fifth season, league sources tell ESPN.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 13, 2019 Nola was to be in his first arbitration year in 2019, so this contract buys out all his arb years and at least one and possibly two of his first years of free...

The Yankees’ complete lack of interest in Bryce Harper is alarming

Remember when the Yankees talked to every big free agent? Good times.

Then right on cue, a report emerges insisting the Yankees have no interest in signing Harper whatsoever. Andy Martino appears to relish the chance to proclaim the Bombers out; he has done so all offseason long. “[The]...
