I have a bet that it will snow less than 15 inches between yesterday and next Thursday. Do you think I will win that bet?
Here’s a picture of my dog, Zeppelin, playing in the snow.
With all that out of the way, let’s get onto the links!

Around the League...
- Former Mariner Chris Heston is got a shoutout for a recent uptick in velocity.
Some interesting pitchers still available. One is Heston, who was good for the Giants in 2015 and can benefit from velo uptick.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 8, 2019
Another, who was very good in 2018: reliever Alex Wilson, who's generating interest from a number of teams after putting up a 3.36 ERA for the Tigers. https://t.co/Be6AnXbs3r
- The Marlins were asking for quite a bit before they agreed to trade JT Realmuto to the Phillies.
Most others in on Realmuto were willing to surrender 1 big piece but not a 2nd big piece. Marlins sought 2 of May, Lux, Ruiz and Smith from LA (after it was clear Bellinger was going nowhere) and 2 of Riley, Pache and a big pitching prospect (ie Wright, Wilson, Anderson) from ATL— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 8, 2019
- Baseball Prospectus added a new writer who previously covered the Diamondbacks.
My free agency is over. I am joining the team at Baseball Prospectus (@baseballpro) starting next Monday! I'm excited about the opportunity to work with some tremendous people and write about baseball at-large again. Disclaimer: my first post is #Dbacks-heavy.— Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24) February 8, 2019
