|Overall, this is a relatively thin market lacking the superstar power of the last couple of offseasons. Still, there are some valuable options. Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto, Astros outfielder George Springer, Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu and Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna are the top position players, with the Reds' Trevor Bauer the top pitching option, followed by the Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka. Liam Hendriks of the A's, who was one of baseball's best closers the past two years, is another intriguing name. Other position players include Justin Turner of the Dodgers, Oakland's Marcus Semien, the Twins' Nelson Cruz, Michael Brantley of the Astros, Jackie Bradley Jr. of the Red Sox and the Phillies' Didi Gregorius. Other pitchers on the market include Taijuan Walker, Jake Odorizzi and Trevor May.
Rogers: The Cubs' signing of Lester in 2015 was on the verge of falling apart at times before it finally came together. Both sides were unsure if the other was being completely honest about leaks, but when the deal came to pass, all were thrilled. But it came close to not happening. Afterward, the Cubs' party began in their suite and moved down to the hotel bar for a long night of celebrating.MLB Face Masks
"Dick was a sensitive Black man who refused to be treated as a second-class citizen," Schmidt said in a speech. "He played in front of home fans that were products of that racist era [with] racist teammates and different rules for whites and Blacks. Fans threw stuff at him, and thus Dick wore a batting helmet throughout the whole game. They yelled degrading racial slurs. They dumped trash in his front yard at his home. In general, he was tormented, and it came from all directions. And Dick rebelled."Atlanta Braves Face Masks
Gonzalez: What I'll miss the least is the overall concept; it got to a point when executives hardly ever appeared in the lobby, which at times made it seem rather pointless to report on site. And so what you had was a ton of loitering media members, a few of them scrounging for any morsel of information -- much of it, because of the circumstances, either inconsequential, misleading or incomplete -- and a few others merely pretending to work. What I'll miss most is the nights -- gathering with reporter friends over dinner, everyone anxious over the threat of major news interrupting everything, then congregating at the hotel bar and not knowing which executive or coach or agent or even player might be there. That's when the real reporting happened.Cleveland Indians Face Masks

Gonzalez: Relative to their revenue streams, I'll go with the Miami Marlins in 2011. They were heading into a new, taxpayer-funded stadium, ownership promised to spend on the rosters, and so Jeffrey Loria, David Samson and Michael Hill patrolled the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas like wannabe mobsters, negotiating with the agents of all the biggest free agents and at times pressuring them into quick decisions. They ultimately signed Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell over a five-day stretch -- and it went about as poorly as you could imagine. Seven months later, the Marlins traded away most of their good players and went into another full-scale rebuild.
With the Major League Baseball season suspended due to Covid-19, resources that would normally be reserved for making jerseys will instead go toward masks and gowns for healthcare workers.
Fanatics, the company that manufactures MLB jerseys for Nike, has temporarily converted its 360,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Easton, Pennsylvania, to create up to 1 million masks and gowns, per MLB.
According to Fanatics executive director Michael Rubin, the company has halted production of jerseys entirely, instead re-focusing a staff of 100 social-distanced employees on making masks and gowns from jersey materials. They will be donated to hospitals and emergency management personnel in Pennsylvania with plans to expand to the New York City region, which has become the epicenter of the outbreak.
MLB jerseys are made with polyester, which could retain germs for a longer period of time compared to cotton. But the jersey-made equipment could still help prevent the spread of Covid-19 by way of coughing, spitting or sneezing. Some form of prevention is better than none as healthcare workers are already struggling with a lack of resources amid the outbreak and are being told to reuse masks.
