    $5 million fine

    Beltran off the hook, but Cora may be in some trouble.

    Seems like a reasonable conclusion - of course, if you are desperate enough to win, that would be a minor deterrent if you end up grabbing the ring!
    Doesn’t hurt Astros this year, they don’t have a pick until #72 and they have enough young talent to hold them over.
    So I don’t really see any real deterrent for them.
    Cora could be interesting though! He was warned before, so penalties could be huge for him.

    Hinch and the GM fired by the Astros. And Cora fired by the Red Sox. hopefully anyone else involved gets let go as well. Not sure if the Mets can let Beltran keep his job at this point.....

    Add Beltran to the list of coaches gone due to the cheating scandal. And now rumors of electronic buzzers under the jerseys. Curious to see how far this ends up going and if any players end up losing time due to suspension - despite the commish coming out and saying that wouldn't happen.

    Hopefully in left field for the Cardinals along with Arenado at 3rd base
    Just a set builder for the most part. If you can't help me on sets I can always use Oscar Tavaras, Michael Wacha cards. Also been picking up some Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, and Ozzie GU and Autos. Thanks for the help and GO Cards!!

    Saw that Kris Bryant lost his grievance with the Cubs. For some reason I can't find any reason to feel bad for him. So what if he has two not one years to sign the $20 mil.a year contract.

    To the Reds along with Pedro Strop!

    The Phillies still need a 3rd baseman at this point - not sure what direction they will end up going.

    Congrats to Derek Jeter and Larry Walker for making it to the HOF. My favorite Walker moment was the ASG where Randy Johnson hummed a fastball about 20 feet out of the strike zone and Walker flipped to the RH batters box and put his batting helmet on backwards.

    Betts and Price heading to LA. Verdugo and a Twins pitching prospect heading to Boston. Maeda heading to the Twins. I think that has to be considered a blockbuster. Thought for sure that the Red Sox would be able to get more back from a trading partner, guess Betts only being under contract this year made that difficult.

    While the Dodgers obviously do well in this trade - Betts, DUH! I think the Twins make out sneakily well, picking up a front of the rotation SP to go with that crazy good lineup they have put together!
