Consider that itch ... well, read the episode title.

Well, at least they didn’t make out, right? Minor subplots aside, this episode was about Mike and his looming trade to the Chicago Cubs. Would he really go? Would he get an at-bat in his final game as a Padre? Would Blip assume his mantle as clubhouse leader? Would Ginny throw a Ken Burns documentary up on the clubhouse TVs? WOULD MIKE AND GINNY KISS?

Andrew McCutchen is on the verge of being trade, but Shohei Otani may be staying in Japan for a while.

McCutchen talks getting deep

Last month, there were rumors of the Pirates once again entertaining the idea of trading Andrew McCutchen after entering into talks with the Nationals last summer. Although Ken Rosenthal noted that the two teams were “unlikely” to return to the negotiating table, that didn’t mean it was completely out of the question. Fast forward to December, and things have intensified to the point where Jayson Stark of ESPN is reporting that the Nationals were trying to make sure a trade was done yesterday.

There is a wait so long (so long, so long). You’ll never wait so long.

Jon Jay's arrival in Chicago means Dexter Fowler is going elsewhere, and the Braves and Mariners make a minors trade.

The biggest changes are on the international spending front.

There are going to be a lot of reactions to this CBA, and, given the makeup of the writer base, there’s going to be no shortage of them that have already told you the things I plan on covering, at least in part. We should also note that some things are still being worked out, and thus what has been reported is subject to any changes that come down the pipeline. In the meantime, let’s get some good old fashioned thoughts on the items that have been announced:

Eric Thames returns from Korea with many home runs, Carlos Ruiz lands in Seattle, and Oakland does a very Oakland thing.

Two-Strike Approach: Eovaldi Evolution

3

Cat Garcia

What does the future hold for Nathan Eovaldi now that the Yankees have cut him loose?

With just a few days until the winter meetings, we are officially one month into the offseason. (Yay! Only four more to go.) Which means it’s time for every baseball person’s favorite activity—speculating! Yes, we love filling our time speculating. Where will Chris Sale end up? What are the Astros trying to do? What does Jon Jay’s signing mean for Dexter Fowler? We have all the questions, and we’re trying to figure out the answers before spring breaks.

Upon hearing that the Yankees released Nathan Eovaldi this week, my question was what that means for the 26-year-old starter who'll spend the 2017 season recovering from two major elbow surgeries. Things are rough right now if you’re Eovaldi. You’re still relatively young in baseball years, you’ve had a career that inspires more “meh” than Star Wars prequels, and you've paired Tommy John surgery with a repaired flexor tendon tear.

Fantasy Categorical Breakdowns: Stolen Base Over/Underachievers

Wilson Karaman

Speed kills, and it's hard to project, too.

Yesterday George Bissell laid out the speed landscape, which last year continued to appear significantly less densely populated than it had in years (and especially decades) past. Go forth and acquire speed, young bloods, for it is an asset in demand. Let’s take a look at some of the players who over- and under-performed relative to pre-season expectations in 2016, before diving a little deeper into the category later this week.

Overachievers

Baseball Therapy: The 26th Man

Russell A. Carleton

LOOGYs? Speed? Defense? Dads? How should teams fill a potential 26th spot on the roster.

Negotiations for MLB’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA) are heating up, and one item reportedly being discussed is the possible addition of a 26th roster spot. It would be the first expansion of active rosters in a very long time and, if it happens, would bring up the question of what teams will do with that 26th spot.
