Episode 81: Ten Game 163s is better than Two

Jen, Sarah, and Mary discuss the biggest signings and trades that happened over the holiday break, including Yusei Kikuchi, Zach Britton, David Robertson, and Yasiel Puig. They also explore the frequency of “weird” contracts and what trends these deals might suggest. Then they move on to the unsurprising but joyous news that Ichiro will play in Japan for the Mariners’ opening series. Finally, they consider which teams might sign Harper and Machado and when. The episode concludes with This Week in Baseball History.

Very sad to hear this podcast is ending. The only fantasy baseball podcast where nobody shouts over anyone else. Thanks for a fun run!
