    Would not be surprised if the musical tastes of the people I work with is that of Creed.

    All I know is this is bogus, man.

    Alriiiiight. Scott Stapp let me back in, baby.

    But, yeah, I don't fault agents or players wanting to maximize the amount of money they receive. Also, I'd say the greatest reason things are the way they are are because 1) the finances of baseball have swung in favor of the players back to the teams - I wouldn't call it "gaming" the system, they just know how much more valuable a GM is (andI'd say baseball GMs do not get paid remotely even close to what they're worth); and 2) the sport from a competitive standpoint needs refining/improvement - and this counteracts #1 as there is plenty of room to argue the idea of collusion in the sport.

    I don't know if it's collusion or just only a few teams can even consider guys like Machado and Harper.  It's not good for the game when only about 5 teams have a chance at signing stars. Heck even the Yankees are looking to be fiscally responsible these days because they don't want to go too far over the luxury tax.   There needs to be a salary cap and salary floor so the finances are spread out more evenly amongst teams.  It will most likely never happen in baseball though.

    Almost every team could afford at least one of them if they wanted.

    I think there's room for improvements; haven't totally fleshed out this idea but maybe you have some kind of deadline for "preliminary" offers, possibly only for "qualified" players or "Type A or B" like they used to be labeled.

    ...sources are giving me word. Look, my hopes are now up due to a text I got. And now you all will share in the pain of disappointment that I am going to feel when it's wrong.

    I was with a Phillies fan for work / play on fice straight days last weekend/week.
    No less than five times I missed with him about news of signing one or both players 
    Great fun .

    This is good but still don’t think his Cooperstown case is nearly what he’s getting

    Of course not, he's getting in because he's dead. But best pitcher of a decade, he'd be getting in at some point anyway so I say go on. Big class this year I believe, love it.

    Guys, we got him. A father on my son's friend's sister's basketball team knows someone with the Phillies and there is a deal in place.
    Alright, alright, alright!

    I'm surprised my leaked info isn't getting more traction in here.

    Halladay goes in as  Blue Jay or Phillie? Couldn't he go in as both? I thought I remember one year someone went in for two teams
