On SportsNite, Moose and Sal determine how big a blow it is for the Mets that George Springer is heading to the Toronto Blue Jays in a 6-year $150 deal.
Outfielder George Springer became the most prominent among baseball's free agents to reach an agreement, a $150 million, six-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. Springer, who turned 31 in September, is a three-time All-Star who spent his entire seven-season career with Houston and was World Series MVP when the Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games for their first title in 2017. A slow free agent market saw only 21 of 181 players who became free agents following the World Series enter Tuesday with finalized agreements.
The Cubs rotation's mass exodus continued Tuesday with Jos Quintana leaving for the Angels in free agency.
