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.
