Around the league...

  • Andrew McCutchen signed on for another year with the Pirates, which was pretty much inevitable once he decided he was going to play in 2024.
  • The Padres are reportedly closing in on a deal with left-handed reliever Yuki Matsui, who will be playing in Major League Baseball for the first time after spending 10 years in NPB.
  • In a minor trade, the Giants acquired outfielder TJ Hopkins from the Reds.
  • The TV deal fallout continues...

Anders’ picks...

  • This holiday season, one of our beloved Lookout Landing writers has fallen on hard times and is in need of assistance. If you have the means, please consider donating to our GoFundMe so we can help them find housing, food, and accommodations for their family and pets. Consider it a holiday gift to the staff. Thanks for your consideration!
