Less than 72 hours until a likely lockout and MLB is in the midst of a spending spree! Byron Buxton, Marcus Semien, Kevin Gausman and more are cashing in. Ken explains why teams are emptying their wallets despite the uncertainty around the next CBA. Then in the mailbag...
-After signing Steven Matz, could Cardinals still go big on more pitching?
-Is Danny Salazar attempting a comeback?
-Who's more likely to leave their long-time homes, Freddie Freeman or Clayton Kershaw?
-Will the Yankees spend before the lockout
-When will Cubs make a splash again?
-Would MLB be better off with an economic system closer to the NFL's?
-What if teams were forced to lower ticket prices if they don't spend enough?
