Day 2 ended in similar fashion to Day 1, with news of a big free agent name heading to Chicago. This time it was Jon Lester heading to the Cubs for 6 years/$155M. Good for him. Today’s big news, so far, is Jimmy Rollins heading to L.A. after 15 years in Philadelphia. I say so far because with the Winter Meetings on the west coast, the big news items have been breaking well after midnight on the east coast so we’ll see what happens tonight. Could it be Max Scherzer heading out of Detroit? Who knows but with the way reporters are hanging onto Scott Boras’ every word, it’s a possibility.
Anyway, here is your Day 3 recap:
- Here are more details on the Rollins trade.
- Oh hey, it’s Yankees news! Brian Cashman says that Brandon McCarthy is seeking a deal in the four year/$46M range. Hmmm. Not sure about that one.
- The Astros really want to win the World Series in 2017 and in order to make that a reality, they added relievers Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek to their roster.
