Wow! I thought the Padres had the best shot. If he lives up to the hype, him and Trout will be a formidable 1-2 punch.

I figured he'd go with the Mariners. I can't wait to see him play.

This makes the future of the AL way more interesting too. Angels are just a couple pieces away from being contenders.

It will be interesting to see if he is anywhere near as good as the hype. Looking forward to seeing the kid play.

The Angels are an interesting choice. I was figuring the Mariners as well. I think the Angels are more than just a few pieces away from competing but this guy is a big step up for them if he is for real.

We need to get on the phone and offer up Abreu to the Angels. They are in big need for corner IF.

I bet we could pry away Jo Adell and other parties for Abrue.

They are paying Pujols 25 mil the next 4 years and Ohtani is going to DH...

No thanks on Adell either

Mariners traded off six prospects for international cap money targeted for him and he winds up going to a divisional rival.

Wow. Does that international cap money roll over from year to year or do you lose it if you don't spend it?

Hence, "lolMariners". This is Mets-level of incompetence we're looking at here.

Somewhere "unbiased journalists" Dave Kaplan and Gordon Wittenmyer are weeping uncontrollably. LOL.
