$40 mil per season? The way the Pirates are looking to shed payroll, Harper could very well be making damn near 50% of a teams' entire payroll in two years if he gets what he wants...

Harper won't get less than a penny than what Stanton got however...

If Kris Bryant is up for 40 million a year, say over five years, and he's helped the Cubs get at least one or two more titles, I hope Chicago pays it.

Brian Cashman is probably already filling up the dump truck full of money to deliver to Bryce Harper.

Chris Sale to the Red Sox. 

Well with the Nats missing out on Sale, hopefully they will now be willing to include Giolito or Robles in a trade for McCutchen. The Pirates need to get a tangible return in a trade after last years' fiascos with Walker and Liriano, though when the owner demands you to eat a nickel and shit out 6 pennies, a GM can only do so much when other GMs know your hand is already tipped.

The Red Sox got him cheap too, they probably tried to rob the Nats and the Yankees.

Fuck. A stud 27 y/o lefty ace for relatively cheap. They gave up a lot but with all their young talent already this team is fucking scary. 

How about that weird Matt Holliday signing?

Yoan Moncada is an amazing prospect - I wouldn't consider that to be a cheap price.

Pretty solid for a 21 year old who was regarded as the #1 prospect at the trade deadline by BA.

I was referring to what Sox are actually paying Sale per year. Moncada is a stud, no doubt.

So, Sale breaks down by the all star break, right?

Kinda amazed that the Sawks got Sale. When I went to bed last night everybody was reporting that the Nats and ChiSox were "finalizing" a deal to send him to Washington. Chicago got themselves some real nice prospects in return, but I figured in this market, and with Sale's very friendly contract, they'd get more for him.

I don't think it was that weird. They have a history of signing veterans for one or two tears. I remember them doing that with Tim Raines and Chilli Davis.

Margaret Whitton aka Rachel Phelps passed away at the age of 67. I think I'm going to watch Major League in tribute.

Cubs send Jorge Soler to the Royals for Wade Davis. Guess they won't be bringing Chapman back.

I don't think that was ever the plan. I do believe they want Edward's Jr. to grow into the role.  With one year of Davis, that should allow him to season up.  If Davis is spectacular, he'll still command less than Chapman most likely, should they decide they want to resign him.
