wouldve loved that deal for the cardinals, especially with the opt-out after 5


There is 0.00001% chance Machado will execute that opt-out, unless the deal is insanely front-loaded. Especially since there will be a new CBA between now and then.


Yup. I'd say the odds are better than 50/50 that there is a strike after the CBA expires in 2021. And I think a lot of the things we're talking about like younger players getting paid what they're worth and older players not getting massive overpayments will come to fruition. It's nice for Machado to have that opt-out in the event that doesn't happen, there is a new CBA amidst increasing popularity for the game, and veterans are still getting big money.

Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

That’s like saying that buying a nice, well made jacket at full retail is a steal.

I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.
