This article is 4 years old but I'd completely forgotten about this. He batted .340 in Fresno last year. It's a paywall article so maybe Google is your friend? Anyway it's a really nice article.

His was the first perfect game I was around for/aware of. Before that I didn't really have a handle on what it meant.

Oh wiki says he came within one inning of a second perfect game. Went 8 innings before giving up a double in the ninth...

Interesting stats: Alfredo Griffin was the first player in major league history to have started three times for the opposing line-ups in a perfect game: against Len Barker (Cleveland) in 1981 for the Toronto Blue Jays, then against Tom Browning (Cincinnati) in 1988 and Dennis Martínez (Montreal) in 1991, both for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
David Cone only threw 88 pitches in his perfect game.

Tom Browning, the former 20-game winner and World Series champion who crafted the only perfect game in Reds history, died Monday. He was 62.

I initially was wondering whether Turner wanted to make sure he would play shortstop, but it appears Padres are moving Tatis to outfield (?). I believe Turner lives in Florida. I heard he prefers to be on East Coast.

Ex-Nationals of note: Harper, Turner, Schwarber (although only one season in DC) in Philly. Scherzer on Mets. Josh Bell on Guardians. Rendon on Angels. Nationals are in a major rebuild.


Doh. Forgot Soto on Padres.

That is true regarding the Phillies.  Turner and Harper are friends from their time in DC, which many feel was the real deciding factor.  The Padres also offered Judge more than the Yankees.  

Not sure what San Diego is doing...attempting to hoard all of the shortstops in the game?

Mets signed Verlander around same time as Phillies signed Turner.

Aye - a lot of blockbuster deals going on in a short period of time.

41-year-old shortstops are a rarity. I figure 100 million of that was intended as a rude gesture to Fernando Tatis. SD fans and I imagine ownership is pissed at that guy. They've spent decades lambasting San Francisco as dirty...

Outbid by the Padres of all teams. 11 years I heard, which is crazy. Not sure how much of it is guaranteed. Any short stops in the fahm system?

From many sources I read or heard that Xander Bogaert has been talking to many owners other than the Sox front office which doesn’t bode well for us.

Red Sox sign OF Masataka Yoshida:

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story...

Yoshida, 29, locked in a deal with the Red Sox on the first day he was eligible to sign after the Orix Buffaloes, the reigning Japan Series champion, posted him. A corner outfielder, Yoshida hit .335/.447/.561 with 21 home runs, 80 walks and just 41 strikeouts in 508 plate appearances this year.

...

Yoshida spent seven seasons with Orix, distinguishing himself as one of the best players in Japan. Over his career, he has batted .326/.419/.538 with just 307 strikeouts in 3,251 plate appearances. Minnesota Twinsleadoff man Luis Arraez was the only player in MLB last year with a lower strikeout rate than Yoshida.



Only setback is he doesn’t have an arm, but playing in LF at Fenway might equalize that out.

Who knew they have Buffaloes in Japan?


I guess Orix is the company, not a town, so that's weird, but an oryx is a bovid, as are buffaloes. I thought that part was awesome.
