Saturday Night Open ThreadBy
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend, especially those of you still dealing with the fallout from Hurricane Sandy. The baseball offseason officially started today with the open of free agency, and the first free agent to come off the board was former Yankee Bartolo Colon. He re-upped with the Athletics for one year and $3M. If Bart got that coming off a suspension, you can all forget about signing Melky Cabrera for one year and like, $4-6M. Teams have lots of cash available and few places to spend it thanks to the draft and international free agent spending restrictions, so these guys are going to get paid. Handsomely.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening. There’s college football and NBA action on, but the Arizona Fall League Rising Stars Showcase will be on MLB Network at 8pm. Yankees farmhands C Austin Romine, IF David Adams, and RHP Mark Montgomery will play in the game. Feel free to talk about anything you like here (no politics!). Enjoy.
