       Greedy? More like smart.

      The Yankees are the ones that gave him this option in the first place. He has done basically everything they could have asked for in terms of production.

      I’m also pretty damn sure that his agent has a lot of influence in this.

      I guess we are all greedy then.If my boss put in an incentive for me as an employee to make more money, I would do it in a second.The Yanks gave CC the ability to opt out, CC would be a fool not to use it.

    The Astros in the American League West is not a good idea.The Astros are already at least five years away from being competitive, now you want to put them in the American League.The only silver lining is they would be in the west, which I believe is the weakest American League Division.

    If Watt likes the smell of fresh air, he better not even consider trading Votto.I don’t think the fans in cincy will take that one two well.

    I wonder what’s the market for aging shortstop.I only see a two years deal in Rollins future, and not with the Phillies.
