Both the San Diego Union-Tribune, MLB.com, and ESPN, all reported that the Padres signed free agent Eric Hosmer to an eight-year, $144 million+ deal. Hosmer was on the K.C. Royals 2015 World Series championship team, and he could be the 2018 Opening Day starter at first base for San Diego. ;)

I'm glad for him, and I'm glad for us.

The Padres are much closer to relevance than we are. They aren't there yet, but it's not inconceivable Hos will play in a playoff game for them before his 5th year (the actual length of the contract in reality) is up. What he meant to us can't be overstated. I'm happy he's not going to have to rot here during the 6-8 year rebuild.

And, for that reason, I'm happy for us, too. We avoid adding salary. We add another comp pick. And we basically let it be known we're going full Cubs/Astros with this thing and building from the ground up. I'm hoping we deal Duffy, Kelvin, and Whit also.

Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for PEDs. Stands to lose $10.3m in salary.

Cobb County Police confirm dead body found at SunTrust Park in Atlanta
By Whitney McIntosh@WhitneyM02 Updated Jun 27, 2018, 12:18pm EDT

A dead body was found at SunTrust Park on Tuesday afternoon, the Cobb County Police department has confirmed to SB Nation. According to police, the body was found in a beer cooler at the stadium.

When reached for comment, the Braves said they do not have any more information on the discovery at this time.

Officer Sarah O’Hara of the Cobb County Police Department released the following statement on the discovery.

Cobb County Police Department responded to a call of a deceased person located at Suntrust Park. The deceased person, a third party contractor, was located by another worker of the same company this afternoon. At this time, the investigation is still ongoing.

The Cobb County Police Department is working with the Atlanta Braves to investigate this incident.


On Wednesday morning, Sarah O’Hara identified the victim as 48-year-old Minnesotan Todd Keeling. O’Hara also shared that there were no other new details to be released at this time.

The Braves are playing the Reds at home Tuesday night as scheduled. We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.


Beer distributor wars?

Can’t figure out how to embed this but it looks like FIFA officials have infiltrated the Mexican baseball league


Seriously how in the hell do both the home plate ump and 1st base ump make this call?

Wow!

However, their league wasn't ****ing around...
The two umpires in the video were suspended by the league for the rest of the season. The other two umps in that crew were warned by the league after not overruling the call.

Very happy there is at least one league in the world who will actually discipline their umpires when the level of officiating is unacceptable.

IMO, whoever wins the AL will win the WS. The ALCS should be very, very entertaining baseball. The closest thing to must-see ball in a looooong time.

And after 2-3 years, they'll send him off to a LA or NY and still pay about $10+mil a year for them to take him.

Yup, I did see that when adjusted for inflation A-Roids original 10yr-$252M contract is still the highest since it would be the equivalent of $368M in todays dollars.
