For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick. The teams with the 10 worst records have their first round pick protected if they signed a qualified free agent this offseason.

I thought you liked managers to have big contracts...
Castillo looked like he was gonna wrench Rizzo's back to hell coming out of the home plate scrum!
Tony Four Sacks
The RIZZOmeter just went up to 10!!
WELCOME BACK RIZZO!
Everyday I pop out of bed and thank god for Luis Valbuena. He's like the Tony Gwynn of players who totally suck.
I did some math and it turns out without Mike Olt's stats this year the league wide K numbers would have been right around average.
Reds lineup is something...
Hamilton, Negron, Frazier, Mesorasco, Y. Rodriguez, J. Bourgeois, R. Santiago, J. Elmore, A. Simon
good day for Travis to find himself.
13 through 6 for deGrom, 88 pitches
There's a very good chance he's in a caretaker role, I'll grant you that.
12 K through 5 for deGrom, 74 pitches so far...
I've been in that camp at times this year, but the more I think about it that's being pretty generous. Bosio has overseen the pitching every year and it's always great. Rizzo and Castro might have just been left alone and gravitated back to the mean, and they're underachieving for their run differential. I think he's gone by the serious playoff runs in 2016 2017 etc.
twitter says it tied modern record with our pal Jim Deshaies, who did it in 1986 vs. Dodgers
pitcher gets a single off him and then Yelich grounds out
42 pitches through 3, 8 K's
Jacob deGrom with 7 K's...first 7 hitters.
