In Episode 253, Jeffrey and Craig chat about various sports free agencies and then discuss five mostly baseball topics.

Listen to “Five and Dive, Episode 253: Pitch F(tx)” on Spreaker.

1. Houston, we now have a problem: James Click is out in Houston…and uh…Jeff Bagwell is in?

2. 19.65 Million Reasons to Stay: Qualifying Offers are in and we make some predictions about them that were wrong within hours of recording. Same as it ever was.

3. Rumor Has It: Not much has actually happened, but there are free agency and trade rumors floating around the game.

4. Around the Horn: Some relievers re-sign and some hardware is given out

5. Thanks I Hate It: We hate the FTX story, but we love the Money Stuff about it.
