Abreau gets 3 years from Astros

DeGrom to Rangers, 5 years, 185 million

Kershaw re-signs in LA for 1 year, 20 million

Verlander to Mets on 2 year deal worth 86 million

Trea Turner signs 10th, 300 million dollar contract in MLB history locking into the Phillies for 11 years and 300 million.

Some other more minor moves so far
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

I knew it was going to be a big number for Judge, but man that is big.  9 years, 360 million to stay with the Yankees.

I should have written it down, because that's what I was predicting.  My guess was nine years at $40 million AAV. I didn't think it would be the Yankees, though. 

Hopefully the last several years of that deal end really, really poorly for them.  Most sluggers -- particularly taller sluggers -- don't do much in their late 30s.  But, Judge has turned into a Yankees icon, so I see why they're taking the risk.  They can afford it.  Unlike the Red Sox, they're spending like a large market team that wants to contend.

As usual for MLB free agency. Those people deal in Monopoly money.

Not Bogaerts but still a significant move!

Intriguing signing. Kinda surprised the Sox are willing to pay $100M for a player thatís 29 years old and has never played MLB. Not a huge baseball fan, but I will definitely tune in to see how he does.

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

Happy to pay some unknown Japanese player who has never played in MLB but not their star homegrown shortstop who is really good. SMH. The Sox management is trash.

Based on all the tweets and reporting it does sound like Bogaerts will return. Maybe an announcement tonight or tomorrow

Wow. Adios, Xander.

And another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust Ö

Now we just wait for Devers to leave, or get traded, and the teardown will be complete.

Yeesh. I like Xander, but thatís just a ridiculous contract for a 30 year old player who batted .307 with 15hrs and 73RBI. Henry better pay Devers. Otherwise, sell the team.
