What a wild ride the last few days have been. After a few seasons worth of relatively relaxed free agent markets, where signings linger for months, the most recent offseason has been red hot, with one blockbuster deal happening after another, and so much activity it can be hard to keep track of.

Big names like Max Scherzer, Corey Seager, Javier Báez and more have been signed to sizeable deals, so let’s round up some of the big news of the week before getting into the non free agent chatter of the week thus far. Then we’ll move on to the biggest lingering story of the offseason: what’s going to happen between MLB and MLBPA in regards to the CBA?

First the free agent news!

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
