So the offseason has begun, which means the rumor mill is turning. As of this point we cannot put too much stock into the different pieces of information swirling around.
Counterpoint: let us speculate wildly!
First things first. Bryce Harper reportedly turned down a huge offer from the Nationals:
Important on Harper: Both sides considered this a respectful offer. It wasn’t insulting. It was unprecedented.— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) November 7, 2018
Keep in mind, this would be the biggest free agent deal by total money paid in the history of the four major sports. https://t.co/usq54BAvAt— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) November 7, 2018
A lot has to play out yet, that is for sure, but this is the type of offer Harper is commanding. That is noteworthy and might eliminate a number of potentially interested teams.
As there continues to be speculation about Bryce Harper and the Yankees, a well-placed source emphatically says: “It’s not happening. He’s not going to be a Yankee.”— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) November 7, 2018
Next up some directly Cardinals-related rumors:
Okay so... Andrew Miller is good and the it would not hurt for the Cardinals to have a left-handed reliever. To open the offseason with that type of signing - well, it does not seem like many fans will like it.
That is all I have for now. Until tomorrow!
