    The Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a 2 year deal with C/DH Wilson Ramos pending a physical. Ramos was one of the best catchers in the National League last year with the Washington Nationals before tearing his ACL after 107(ish) games.

    Red Sox also signed Mitch Moreland today to a 1 year deal for $5.5 Mil. He'll split time with Hanley Ramirez allowing the former to play more DH and clearing up the 3B for Pablo Sandoval to return to the Hot Corner.

    He hit .233/.298/.422 with 22 HR 21 2B 60 RBI and 118 Ks.

    He also won a Gold Glove last year commiting only 2 errors at 1B and leading all AL 1Bs with a 6.4 UZR.

    White sox should be arrested for robbery. Adam Eaton is no where close to being worth the #3 prospect in baseball, let alone 2 other prospects in return. Bad move for the nats. Giolito is currently the best pitching prospect in baseball...

    Stupid idiot move by Chapman and the Cubbies. Why wouldn't Chapman stay with the Cubs and build a dynasty. Instead he goes to the team that traded him away last season.

    I don't think chapman cares about a "dynasty". He already earned his WS ring and now was his time to get paid, which he did. The loved the Yankees and the Yankees loved him so why wouldn't they both want to come back together? They traded him so he had a chance to win somewhere else (which he did).

    Chapman is a head case so I think the Yankees fit him well. Anyways a random source on the twinsdaily said that dozier will be dealt to the dodgers in 24 hours. Probably DeLeon and Bellinger coming the twins way.
