Can't help but feel bad for him though. Was in line for a nice payday, now you wonder if he'll ever get that chance again

Given the dearth of catching in MLB, I think he'll get a lot more than you think.

I think this one will be interesting. He isn't young (not old either), is coming off a poor second half and had a really bad injury. It's unlikely he gets any kind of big money this season and will absolutely have to reestablish his value at some point

I've got to think we'd be interested in him.

I think swoosh is going to be shocked when he signs his contract. Catching just so sparse now. I personally wouldn't but there's a sucker out there.

Question RE: MLB 2016-17 Hot Stove Thread
Braves sign R.A. Dickey to one-year deal with option to eat up some innings and bridge to their still young starting pitching in the low minors. Even brought out knuckleballer and HOFer Phil Niekro for this one:

Braves sign 42-year-old knuckleballer Dickey for 1 year, $8 million

and Braves now sign Bartolo Colon. last team to have 2 guys 42+ yrs old start 10+ games- 1990 Texas Rangers with Nolan Ryan and Charlie Hough.

For Mets- IMO a huge blow. They have no backup for their starters.

Welp, when Copollela said he needed to sign two starters who wouldn't be here for long, he wasn't kidding. The kids on the farm don't have anything to worry about so far.

interesting trade with Arizona and Seattle. Arizona gets Taijuan Walker and Seattle gets Jean Segura. I like Arizona getting Walker- he's underachieved a bit so far- but him getting to work presumably with Greinke to me is a winner.

wow interesting with Fidel Castro passing away. Not sure if this will mean anything with Baseball- but it sure could.
