I did this just last Friday, but let’s do it again. Here is a list of the most important remaining MLB free agents, topped by the so-called “Boras Four.”
It’s the same list. No one on the list signed between Friday and now.
Michael A. Taylor
I dunno, maybe the Super Bowl had something to do with it, yes, I’m grasping at straws. Maybe people were too busy following Taylor Swift’s plane from Japan to Las Vegas to pay attention to baseball.
There was one minor signing made Sunday:
Spencer Turnbull to Phillies. MLB contract. $2M plus $2M in incentives— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 11, 2024
Spencer Turnbull had talent, but has been injured most of the last three years. Not an unreasonable flyer for the Phillies.
Seriously, though, it’s time for those other guys to get signed. Everyone knows Cody Bellinger and the Cubs are the right fit. You know it. I know it. The Cubs know it. Bellinger likely knows it. Manny Randhawa at MLB.com has predicted it.
Get it done already, Jed and Scott.
As always, this is an open thread for baseball discussion today, and if today’s the day Bellinger signs with the Cubs, of course there will be separate coverage on the front page.
When will Cody Bellinger sign with the Cubs?
This poll is closed
By the end of this week
Between the end of this week and February 23 (the Cubs’ first spring game)
February 24-29 (yes, an extra day, it’s Leap Year!)
He won’t — he’ll sign with a different team
