    Kimbrel isn't even the most unlikable closer in the AL East. You guys have Aroldis Chapman.

    Kimbrel is just late-2010's Papelbon.

    Such punchable faces the two of them.

    Come on y’all can’t be that dense “want to talk about what it’s like playing in philly”

    That **** should have happened months ago.. yeah he might sign with them but the explanation is stupid

    I wouldn't read too deep into it the verbage.

    Money wise, they probably have a deal in place. Might be a formality in terms of signing in person. Especially for a deal that's supposed to be historic

    Your annoyed by Kimbrel's face?

    Papelbon was annoying to me because he was loud and corny. Kimbrel just seems like he does his job (most of the time) and keeps his mouth shut.

    The MLB The Show Twitter account seems to think he’s going to Philly.

    Would not like that :lol: literally anywhere else is cool with me.

    Rumor on the street is that his signing is going to coincide with the cover release for the Show

    Would not be surprised to see Phillies get both or Machado to the White Sox. All the reports I've read in the last 24 hours indicate that the Yankees are out

    Not sure if he is more unlikable but Machado is in the discussions.

    Nats are getting ready to give Rendon 20+ milli per year ... He's a better player than Harper ... I like a Rendon + Turner in exchange for Harper ... But the Nats lineup looks slim on power:

    Eaton
    Turner
    Rendon
    Zimmerman
    Soto
    Gomez
    Dozier
    Robles

    Max, Stras, Corbin ...

    We will have to make a trade for a bat when Zim gets hurt inevitably ...

    I still don’t see the Nats letting Harper stay in the division unless Philly goes OD with the $.

    Lerner pays for big names. He’ll prioritize Harper and the revenue he brings in over Rendon.

    Nats will always suck. I hope they pay Harper 500 mill so they can always be trash for the next ten years.

    Brodie signing Lowrie for 2/$20 :smile:

    adding more depth and versatility. Plus hes got some pop too.

    Mets havent added a "power bat" perhapsfrom Ramos. But the pieces hes added all have a decent BA and have some power as well (Lowrie, JD Davis, Braxton, Ramos).

    Brodies making the Mets competitive :smile:

    The NL east might be the most competitive division on paper by the end of this off-season.

    LGM !

    Hope Lowrie does well over in New York. He was great for us the last couple of years.
