I'm all for chaining Mookie to the ground next time we play.

Marlins hire Kim Ng as GM. She's the first female GM of any pro men's sport. Ng has been in MLB for 30 years as a member of the White Sox, Dodgers and Yankees FO's. She does have 3 World Series rings

And now the Phillies have said they wouldn't trade Babe Ruth or Ted Williams for Wheeler. Technically, I agree with them. It's a bad move to sign dead players.

The Angels signed former Braves minor leaguer Ray-Patrick Didder. Didder became a MiLB free agent after the 2019 season and signed with the Padres but was then cut loose by them when several minor leaguers were loose by teams after the MiLB season was cancelled.

I suspect a few former Braves may find their way to Anaheim.

They also signed one of my favorite recent prospects, Izzy Wilson.

So what would that package look like?

The braves have so many good arms that would probably flourish with Tampa.

Catcher. The Rays are desperate for a catcher!! Mike Zunino is a free agent and won't return and their other catcher from 2020 (Michael Perez) was claimed on waivers by the Pirates. Neither one hit a lick for the Rays so they let both go. They need a massive upgrade at catcher. Braves have catching depth they can spare. Plus, as you said we've got arms we can send them and they've proven to be able to develop pitching.

Rays Randy Arozarena was arrested in Mexico for assault. He allegedly assaulted his daughters grandfather while trying to take the girl from her mother. Mexican authorities said more info will be available in the coming days. He will face discipline under MLB's domestic violence policy. 

He better hope his punishment is completely dealt with in the United States. Going to jail in Mexico is not a good thing.

Cano will get the lifetime ban if he fails another test. This was his second fail. Another Met, Jenrry Mejia is the only player to fail 3. Manfred allowed Mejia to return after 2 years. 

ESPN had an interesting update on this.

MLB stopped doing PEDs testing in March. With so much in flux, nobody expected them to pick it back up in 2020.

Apparently, Cano and some other players thought they could cheat without repercussions.

MLB became aware of it and quietly started testing again late in the summer.

Cano and anybody else who gets busted were trying to take advantage of the pandemic.

I know a couple of people around here are familiar with him, but John Calvagno, formerly of Notes from the Sally, passed away after a bout with sepsis. Incredibly sad.

 

One of the kindest fans I ever had the pleasure to talk to regularly. Bumped into him at a random Danville @ Greeneville Appy League game in 2017. Very knowledgeable and passionate about the game. I learned more about evaluating sliders talking with him for 15 minutes than I did in my previous lifetime.

Absolutely heartbreaking.
