    I thought the word was there was really no "lead", no negotiations, a team just has to meet their (reasonably) very high price or they aren't talking.

    Preller and the Padres are always in the lead for everyone

    Seattle has a lot of chips to deal, and a GM who's willing to gamble. I can see them going all in, unless they think that Ohtani is a possibility, he'd fit in GREAT in Seattle...

    ive read that when the Red Sox sell, Xander and JDM and Eovaldi are the first to go. Could be quite the shakeup.

    I would love the Padres to acquire Ohtani if possible. For the price of Soto they could get several pieces which upgrade the roster but none as singularly productive as Soto

    Either way the Padres are going to blow past the cap so they might as well go all in

    The Tigers are likely dealing Barnhart, Grossman and Fulmer. Also Candy, Jimenez and Chafin have been rumored to go. Soto too but I can't see the Tigers dealing him with Fulmer going. Avila says phones haven't been ringing. I wonder why.
