    Today’s word of the day is ‘Chuck Norris’ as in Walker, Texas Ranger as in the Texas Rangers now have the most expensive middle infield in the history of baseball. That’s right. Corey Seager, 10-year, $325M… Marcus Semien, 7-year, $175M. Holy! The team just opened up a new stadium last season, but now they’re spending like they want fans there.

(16:30) Yankees fans are FURIOUS with Brian Cashman right now. The team has yet to pay big money for a free agent yet. Why not? Is it a smart business move? Is it fear of the market?

Dude this game ,

Wanna talk to SAMSONNNNNN

With Byron Buxton and the Twins agreeing to a heavily incentivized contract extension, why did the player’s union approve of such a contract?

Knox Oxensoxen ,

Always informative

David always breaks down the business of sports better than anyone. I wanna talk to Samson: How often does a quality player get traded due to personality, and did you ever trade a player simply because you didn’t like them?
