Good Morning Cardinal Nation. Here’s what’s I have for you this morning:
The pitching market, as we’ve noted several times on CardsBlog throughout the past couple weeks, has been a very expensive one this offseason. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to think that he might get between $60-80 million in a 4-5 year type deal, similar to the one that Anibal Sanchez received from the Tigers (5 years, $80m). The Dodgers, who seemingly have an unlimited spending budget, have been most often linked to Lohse, so I would expect them to jump on him soon as there are only about 40 days until Pitchers and Catchers report.
— This is a pretty crazy story about a former Pirates infielder from the ’80s, Sammy Khalifa.
