    Right-hander Nick Martinez and the San Diego Padres are in agreement on a four-year, $20 million contract, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN. Martinez, 31, starred for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks in Japan this year (1.62 ERA) and gets opt-outs after first and second year.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    The Brewers have acquired OF Hunter Renfroe from the Red Sox in exchange for OF Jackie Bradley Jr. and INFs David Hamilton and Alex Binelas.

    Surprised the Red Sox reunited with Bradley after foregoing them re-signing him. I mean he was awful last year. I know he put him better numbers in Boston though. I guess they must like Hamilton and Binelas as younger pieces as well.

    Seems like just buying players.

    So Suzuki got posted on the 22nd, I guess the freeze also freezes his clock, so he still has 22 more days to negotiate a contract from w/e point the Players and Owners agree to terms.
    And potentially since he isn't a member yet, he could continue to negotiate, he just can't sign with anyone until the new bargaining agreement.

    However, the Japanese League will start their spring training Feb 1st, and it's basically unheard of for guys to show up late. So if the negotiations drag out, he might be in a situation where he just goes back to Japan for another year.

    So John Heyman released his ballot, and he didn't vote for 10 players, which makes it very confusing that he voted FOR Bonds, but didn't vote for ARod or Clemens.
    I don't understand how someone can only support the Hall Of Fame candidacy of just one of them.

    Bonds was clearly a more productive player than both, holds numerous major records, and is on the ballot for the last time ever. Having said that, I'd vote for both Bonds and Clemens. I'd vote for Rodriguez somewhere down the line as well.

    IDK if I could say that, Clemens has over 4600 K's and a rWar of like 140 with 360 wins.
    He won 7 CY Youngs.

    We could go down the list for all 3 about why their worthy of the Hall of Fame.

    Had Bonds retired in 2000, he would have been elected to the Hall in 2005. His choices after that may keep him from being elected during his lifetime.

    Of course I do. 1986. He was the best player in the NL during the 1990s. He would have been a shoo-in for Hall of Fame induction had he retired in 2000, rather than making the choices he made.

    Bud Selig is in. He allowed it to happen. So Bonds, Clemens, etc. should be allowed in as well.
