Most importantly Homer Bailey is gone.  I’m good with this trade.    Didn’t really give up a big name prospect.

Arbitration filing day. As expected, lots of players settled with their teams on one year deals to prevent arbitration hearings.

The Reds have made out like bandits so far compared to the projected salaries by MLBTR:

Tanner Roark           $10M          ($9.8M proj)  +$200K
Yasiel Puig               $9.7M         ($11.3M)       -$1.6M
Scooter Gennett       $9.775M     ($10.7M)        -$925K
Anthony DeSclafani  $2.125M     ($2.1M)         +$25K
Jose Peraza              $2.775M      ($3.6M)        -$825K
Curt Casali               $950K         ($1.3M)        -$350K
Michael Lorenzen      $1.95M        ($1.9M)       +$50K

Total savings versus projections = $3.425M

Alex Wood has not been announced as settling, so he will be the only player to head to arbitration. He has been projected at $9M.
Oh Dandy...you came and you gave without taking!

Really hoping Machado and Harper sign soon. Tired of wading through Twitter rumors as a White Sox fan

Yankees signed Adam Ottavino for 3/27.  The bullpen is stacked yet again with Chapman/Britton/Bettances/Green/Ottavino/Holder and more depth in the minors.  I like our rotation better than most, there's questions with everyone in it for sure, but the ace bullpen makes up for it

Reportedly close to dealing Sonny Gray now too

I like Cash's offseason moves so far, Tulo was a super low risk gamble and DJ will be a very useful super utility guy.  And I still think a big trade from infield/prospect surplus is possible, and you can never rule out an 09 Tex like FA splash for Harper or Machado

I guess this will be another year where the big FA fish aren't caught until pitchers and catchers report.
