Trevor Story and Carlos Correa are still out there, but they'd break the bank.
Other than that, the SS market is pretty dry.
Not sure who's got the money. Might not get as rich as they think.

Likely Dodgers are gonna spend on Freeman, so who else has the cash and cap?

P.S. He's a West Coasty, don't see him going to Toronto
Also, why would Toronto do that with Vlad at 1B?
Where did everybody go?

Freeman was born in the US but both his parents are Canadian.

So where does Freddie go? Jays or Dodgers?
Dodgers I bet

BTW....this is a huge upgrade for the Braves even though the media insisted they re-sign Freddie

So the big budget teams are all capped out (like anyone but Uncle Stevie would really care, and even he doesn't see: The Cohen Tax).

So which of the cheapy teams, aka the 4A, are going to pay for Story or Correa?

The $168 million is fully guaranteed. Plus, he's from Atlanta so I think he gave them a Home Town discount.
He'll be getting $22 mill a year and his market value was $23 so it's really not that far off.

Kind of surprised Carlos Correa took a 3 year deal. Perhaps he wants to hit the open market again when he's still only 30 years old?

With Nick Castellanos going to the Phillies, about the only big name left is Trevor Story.

Identical twins pick up the save and loss during SD/SF game last night.

I know baseball has been around a long time but it seems crazy that this is the fifth time twins have been in the same game.
