The MLB Winter Meetings are in full swing so a lot of things are happen. Instead of picking a topic to write about, I am just going to throw all of the information at you. Have fun!
Bryce Harper/Scott Boras stuff:
Boras said teams have been creative in pitches to Harper, including...”very graphic pictures” (?)— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) December 12, 2018
Boras not spilling specifics on Harper but said he would consider a team’s long-term plan to win even if they might not win in 2019. But also, Harper keenly interested in every aspect of franchise, including who is riding from minors. #sfgiants— Henry Schulman (@hankschulman) December 12, 2018
Scott Boras has moved on from boat analogies when discussing Bryce Harper negotiations. He has shifted to automobiles.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) December 12, 2018
Boras: "This is not a race where every car is labeled."
“They sit on the big bank of St. Louis.” — Scott Boras on whether the Cardinals are a fit or have a big enough market for Bryce Harper. #stlcards #MLB— Derrick Goold (@dgoold) December 12, 2018
Sources: #Reds remain active in trade discussions for Sonny Gray and Marcus Stroman. They believe there’s a better chance of acquiring one of them than Corey Kluber. @MLBNetwork @MLB— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) December 12, 2018
Former Redbirds skipper Mike Shildt meeting with the media at @WinterMeetings!— Memphis Redbirds (@memphisredbirds) December 12, 2018
He’ll bring his @Cardinals team to @AutoZone_Park for a #BattleOfTheBirds exhibition game on March 25! pic.twitter.com/WbZd9yD7bv
Asked Shildt about the use of Waino as a potential fireman, multi-inning reliever, he said that Wainwright is coming to camp as a starter.— Jeff Jones (@jmjones) December 12, 2018
Later, in listing off starters, he named them in this order: Wacha, Flaherty, Mikolas, Waino, Martínez. That sounds like today's rotation.
Other teams stuff:
Free agent starter Charlie Morton and the Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a two-year, $30 million deal, sources told Yahoo Sports.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 12, 2018
Charlie Morton's two-year, $30 million deal with the Tampa Bay Rays includes a third-year "Lackey" option that would offer the Rays cost certainty if Morton were to miss significant time with an injury. Details at Yahoo Sports: https://t.co/EF0AgFpuAM— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 12, 2018
Walking this back. Indications are #Yankees are close on Happ, but no agreement in place. https://t.co/FvR5bwUVDw— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December 12, 2018
So that about does it for now!
