Mets apparently about to get Brad Hand to go w/May to improve their bullpen.

And the Twins? Gretl and





Apparently they're hung up on waiting on Cruz and Kluber.

The Rays are planning to open the 2021 season with a limited number of fans attending games at Tropicana Field.

Breaking news -Theo Epstein will join the commissioners office as a consultant regarding on field matters. MLB will announce today.

Hopefully will tell Manfred what a bad commissioner is and how MLB can start making up for all the gaffes.

Maybe he will advise MLB to let robots play the game.

Here's how this year's HOF results look so far. These are early returns from those that chose to make their votes public:

Not much support for first-timers

Only one newcomer to the ballot has received double-digit votes to this point -- and seven of the 11 first-timers have yet to receive a single tally. Mark Buehrle is leading the way for first-timers with 13 votes, though it's already mathematically impossible for him to reach the 75-percent threshold this time around.

Tim Hudson and Torii Hunter have received six votes apiece, while Aramis Ramirez has a single vote. The other seven players appearing on the ballot for the first time -- A.J. Burnett, Michael Cuddyer, Dan Haren, LaTroy Hawkins, Nick Swisher, Shane Victorino and Barry Zito -- have not received a vote. Players who receive less than five percent of the total votes will drop off the ballot for next year.

These are all guys who belong in the Hall of Guys Who Were Pretty Good. No real hall of famers in that bunch.

Springer signs 6 - year deal with Toronto

Twins nerd spin: At least he didn't sign with the White Sox
