This is why teams are really eyeing McCann

In a catching landscape short on hitters, free agent James McCann’s bat alone would be enough to garner plenty of looks this winter. Never much of a threat over his first five seasons, McCann’s offense came alive after he signed with the White Sox prior to 2019: he’s been a top-five offensive backstop since then, […]

Dave Gettleman’s press conference on Tuesday was pure comedy, but perhaps nothing was more outrageous than his comments on impending free agent Leonard Williams. Gettleman traded a 2020 third round pick and a 2021 fifth round pick to the Jets at the trade deadline for the former first-round pick. “Basically it was a three and […]

Nick’s stick is solid — but his glove? Not bad either

Castellanos has not been a good defensive player to dateThis is unarguable, and so we have to start here.
