On this week’s episode, we begin by discussing Fernando Tatis’ record fourteen-year, $340 million extension with the San Diego Padres, which will keep him in Southern California through his age thirty-five season. From there, we recap a series of moves in New York, including Brett Gardner and Justin Wilson returning to the Yankees, and Kevin Pillar and Taijuan Walker heading to the Mets.
