White Sox acquire Thyago Veiria from Mariners for INTL Bonus Pool Money

The #WhiteSox have acquired minor-league pitcher Thyago Vieira from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for international signing bonus pool money. — Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) November 16, 2017 Big trade today for the White Sox as they ship some of their INTL Bonus Pool Money they can’t use (thanks to the Luis Robert signing) for the Mariners #8 prospect, Closing Prospect Thyago Veiria. While this may not be as impactful long term as the Jimenez or Giolito or Rutherford trades, I am PUMPED about this acquisition by Rick Hahn.

MLB Free Agency Predictions

Just like we did last year, were here to give you our predictions on the Top 25 MLB Free Agents. Check back after every big signing to see how far off we were (If Lorenzo Cain signs with the Brewers like Nick Anton believes, I vow to never watch another MLB game) Wooding likes the Los Angeles Angels (Davis and Moose) and Philadelphia Phillies (Martinez and Arrieta) to make huge splashes this off-season, as the Angels attempt to supplement the Trout-Simmons-Upton core with real MLB talent, and the Phillies attempt to speed up their rebuild as all the MLiB...

Turner vs. Verlander. Correa vs. Jansen. The list goes on. This year’s Fall Classic marks the first time two 100-win teams have faced each other in the World Series since 1970. With such successful regular-season records, this matchup seemingly shouldn’t have been too difficult to predict. However, most of the LMBF crew had other ideas with their...

A Storybook Ending for LA LA Land

Dodgers Advance! Game 5 of the NLCS may not have featured the dramatic flair of a certain Kirk Gibson home run, but the Dodgers of 2017 wasted no time in leaving their own mark on franchise history. After a dominating team effort, Los Angeles has returned to the World Series. Their drought may not have lasted 108 years, but the 29-year wait was long enough. On a night when Clayton Kershaw continued to purge his postseason demons with six innings of one-run ball and Kiké Hernandez became only the tenth player in history to hit three home runs in a...
