And quite interesting how close our respective teams are performing overall. You're noticeably outperforming my pitching but offense & defense pretty much a wash. I think your depth in pitching, especially in the pen, will perhaps be the difference maker. My entire offense continues to be essentially from 4 main players (Merrifield, Escobar, Hicks & Sano). And certainly can't rule out KC. They're obviously better than their results show.

It's not everyday you see a player like Altuve get waived.  I can't afford him, but maybe somebody else might pick him up and end this Oakland outperformance.

Interesting move that I don't quite understand.

Only a few teams have room under their break even to pick him up, but plenty of competitive teams would still be under the hard Cap.

Certainly someone will grab him who is making a run.  I guess we'll see Tuesday night.

Andrew Miller on waivers now too! 

So much buyers remorse.  Miller is cheaper, but that 5 year contract is tough to stomach.

This is really effing stupid.  Sign a massive contract, and waive him 3 months later.

I guess we have something else to discuss in the winter.
