    David Robertson to the Phillies for 2 years, $23m. Their new closer, I presume?

    According to Rotoworld, it will be a committee. Robertson won't be the sole closer.

    Yasmani Grandal to the Brewers on a one year deal. Talk about a misplayed hand. He shlould fire his agent immediately.

    Wow, yeah, I mean, it could work out for him if he has a monster year, and this is a good spot for him to try that--great park and line up. But man, I don't see turning down 4 years and 60 mil if I'm his level of player. Sure, one can blame the agent, and he should. and he should totally fire the guy. But ultimately, he has to be captain of his own ship. He made the final call and he must be feeling pretty shitty about it right now. or super motivated to prove everyone wrong. He sure has a lot riding on a great 2019. I'm actually talking myself into targeting him as I type.

    For what reason, exactly? Cano plays 1B and blocks Peter Alonso? Lowrie plays 3B and blocks Jeff McNeil? Todd Frazier is a very expensive pinch hitter?

    Sounds like they're going to play him at 1B, 2B & 3B, so I think he would impede on Alonso and McNeil the most.

    Is he gonna be an every day player for them? I have him cheap and I'm not happy about this signing, as it seems he is gonna be a utility player who may eventually drop playing time when Alonso is ready.

    Lowrie signing is the first one under Brodie’s regime where I scratched my head. The rest were so clearly appealing to me. Is he planning to trade McNeil? Is Lowrie just insurance in case 1) Cano is hurt; 2) Peter Alonso isn’t ready; or 3) McNeil isn’t enough to unseat Frazier at 3B? Useful insurance but seems expensive for that.
