I'm not convinced that Sale will be good going from pitching in the AL Central which has been the worst division in baseball the last couple years to the AL East which has been the toughest division in baseball for like the last decade plus

If Sale isn't top shelf, David Price is out..that puts a lot of pressure on Porcello to replicate 2016. Not to mention Pomeranz has a bum arm too

Nah still a smart decision to move on from him even with today's news about Price. Just too injury prone and inconsistent the past few years. Had he not tanked his trade value, his time with the Sox would have been over a lot sooner.

Red Sox dodged a bullet with Price. Only needs rest and not surgery so just 1-2 Spring Training starts are missed.

Price underwent an MRI exam on Wednesday after experiencing soreness in his left elbow and forearm. The MRI showed swelling and fluid but was largely "inconclusive." Price then sought a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Neal ElAttrache -- two of sports' foremost orthopedic surgeons -- on Friday in Indianapolis, where they are attending the NFL scouting combine

For the second year in a row, the Mets have stuck to their hardline stance of not negotiating with their pre-arbitration eligible players and simply renewing their contracts. It was deGrom last year, and now Thor. Neither player signed their deals because they disagreed with what the team was offering them.

Reportedly the Mets and Thor were only $9k apart. Seems baffling to me that they'd miff their ace over what amounts to pennies in baseball.

Reports are that he has had elbow issues at Spring Training in years before. Could be just a winter rust situation.

Would also be competing against the Caribbean Leagues players like to go for winter baseball.

Unless MLB ever considers going in a similar route like MLS and NHL does for World Cups and Winter Olympics where they have a special break in the middle of the season, Spring Training is the only real time possible to hold the WBC.

I think they might. If they get hurt they will have the off-season to get better. If they get hurt in the current set up they might miss the season.

Aaron Sanchez is on the Canadian cover. Seems smart to feature different athletes in different countries. They could even have a dozen different covers just in the States and I bet it would help sales....

The Mets have the lost 11 of 55 players from their spring training roster to the WBC, and they have a split squad today.

So they need to use a whole ton of minor leaguers to get through these games. And it's a cheap way to drum up interest in an otherwise meaningless spring game.

Angel Pagan didn't pass the Orioles physical (unsure when) which might be why he hasn't signed anywhere.
Pedro Alvarez signed a minor league deal with the Orioles and he's going to be playing OF in AAA.

DR just came back from a 5-0 deficit against Andrew Miller and Team USA.

At this point I fully expect the DR to run the table on the whole tournament again. They're scary good.
