I wondered about that, too. Quite an injury history and he really had only one good season.

My Padres are said to be pursuing Manny. I do not see that as realistic/very likely. I think it is all talk to keep fan interest up.

If you believe all the rumors I am hearing you would think my Padres are in the running for Bryce, Manny, Realmuto, & Gio Gonzalez. I never thought we would get into February without Bryce or Manny being signed. I do know A.J. met with Bryce in Vegas. I cannot imagine we would be able to afford him but the good news I have heard for awhile now is that the payroll strategy in the last couple of years means we have cash to spend. So I just play a waiting game, not expecting much of anything. If I see Tatis Jr. in the majors soon I will be happy enough.

After all that talk about J. R. Realmuto he ended up with the Phillies! Catcher goes from Marlins to Philly for 3 players, catcher Jorge Alfaro, RHP Sixto Sanchez, & LHP Will Stewart.

I heard the Padres made an "aggressive" push for Manny! Who would think pitchers and catchers are reporting and still 3 or 4 big name FAs are not signed?

Whoa!!!!! I guess that "aggressive push" paid off because they just signed Manny for ten years! Surprised Surprised Surprised

I have to say I was surprised when I heard that news! And I have mixed feelings about it. First I heard a lot from you Dodger ladies last year about being disappointed in him. So my preference would have been we signed Bryce instead. But it was looking more and more like they were going to get one or the other. I have to hope for the best, but I am not happy with the long term contract because those are becoming such burdens anymore. I also am still wondering he will "hustle" for us at that price. You all remember how excited I was at the beginning of the 2015 season. I will not get as excited this year until I see how things go in the first couple of months. I am more excited about when Fernando Tatis Jr. will take his first at bat as a Padre! But I am going to be a fan of anyone who plays in this brown & yellow uniform so, go Padres!
