Wednesday Night Open Thread

The 2017 season is a make or break year for Aaron Hicks
Scouting the Free Agent Market: Jason Hammel

Earlier today, Nathaniel Grow at FanGraphs wrote about a little known California labor law that could, in theory, allow Mike Trout to become a free agent right now. Section 2855 of the state labor code limits all employment contracts to seven years, and since Trout has been an Angels employee since 2009, he could technically terminate his current contract and seek employment elsewhere. This applies to other longtime California players like Clayton Kershaw and Buster Posey as well. It won’t happen because the inevitable legal battle would be long and costly, but still, it’s kinda fun to think about.

Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening. The Knicks and Rangers are both playing, and there’s some college hoops on the docket as well. You folks know how these things work by now, so have at it.
