E-Rod Heads to D-Backs for Many C-Notes
Dan Szymborski’s take on Arizona’s most recent big free agent acquisition.
Nobody asked me, but I think @Dbacks have made fantastic moves so far with Suarez at 3B, and Rodriguez in the rotation. Both are meaninfgul veteran upgrades to a solid baseball team. They are better today than they were at the end of the World Series IMO. A lot better.— Bernie Pleskoff (@BerniePleskoff) December 9, 2023

The Yankees may have already made the big deal to acquire Juan Soto, but the Bronx Bombers are apparently not done yet.
Braves Acquire Max Stassi and David Fletcher
This is the second major move of the offseason by Atlanta in which it sems one of the players acquired is destined to be flipped.
Red Sox Acquire Tyler O’Neill

For some reason, Arizona does not show up on this list. It is somewhat interesting to note that Lourdes Gurriel, Jr. is tabbed as being a great fit to return to Toronto to play left field for them.
