<p>Been with ESPN.com since 1995FacebookTwitterPinterestEmailprintcommentJustin Turner's ascendancy from utility infielder to top-10 MVP finisher has been one of the most unexpected surprises in recent seasons. The New York Mets non-tendered him after the 2013 season, even though he produced at a league-average rate in just more than 200 plate appearances. Terry Collins liked him, but there were reports that the Mets were upset with a lack of hustle and were perhaps turned off when he described himself as a hitter not "looking to walk." Maybe they were simply too cheap to give him the small raise he would have received in arbitration.</p>
<p>The bottom line is Montero wears his emotions on his sleeve. That can be a good thing but also sometimes can work against him. If he and Maddon are cool, then the catching rotation becomes obvious for 2017: Contreras is No. 1 with Montero the backup and also perhaps catching Arrieta on a regular basis. Contreras has the superior arm, so he and Jon Lester seem like a natural fit there. Maddon easily could mix and match with one right-handed-hitting catcher and one left-handed one.</p>wholesale NFL jerseys,
<p>• The union fought for months against the owners' push to institute an international draft -- and ultimately won that fight. Instead, the two sides agreed to a hard cap on total annual spending for foreign-born amateur players, of about $5 million for every team. With no exceptions. And no flexibility to go above that amount.</p>wholesale jerseys
<p>1. The initial perception is that management got exactly what it wanted in the international market, even if the headline is different. Players didn&rsquo;t like the idea of the international draft, because they believe it limits the opportunities and leverage for players in the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and others. But the hard cap in spending will effectively do the same thing for the owners as the draft-slotting system in the domestic draft: contain costs.</p>

<p>Author of "The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty"Follow on TwitterFacebookTwitterPinterestEmailcommentThe negotiations on the new labor deal aren&rsquo;t completely finished, and not every detail has emerged. But there were no enormous shifts in principle in the labor negotiations, no foundation-altering changes, which, for some in the industry, only reinforced surprise that the two sides went down to the wire. The most important thing is that it got done, as Jayson Stark wrote.</p>

<p>Dodgers president Andrew Friedman would like to bring back both infielder Justin Turner and left-hander Rich Hill, but Friedman is not sure he likes the length (in years) and average annual value it&rsquo;s going to take to get either deal done. However, his team matches up really well with his former club, the Rays as Longoria and Archer would actually be upgrades at both positions for the Dodgers, and both are already signed to reasonable multiyear contracts. The Rays are always looking for young prospects and non-arbitration-eligible players, and the Dodgers have plenty of those with which to make a blockbuster trade of this magnitude happen.</p>
