I selfishly don't like it, I'm a displaced fan in the central time zone. 5:30 weeknight start times are rough for me, the games are usually over before I get home from the office. But they should make decisions based on the people who might actually go to the games.
That's something that can only be determined in hindsight. Lots of options and lots of flexibility this offseason to really set the team up for the next 2-3 years. I'm very curious to see how it plays out. Checking my crystal ball, I don't see Aroldis Chapman anywhere on the program
Spin rates and stuff like that are very good.
I'm hearing that Naoyuki Uwasawa will be posted soon by his NPB team. His K rates haven't been amazing in Japan, but he has some interesting characteristics to his stuff. His fastball vertical movement (19 IVB) and spin (2650 RPM) would be top 5-10% percent in the league.

2 I’m guessing he’ll want a starting gig or stay in Japan. He will probably leverage that. His K per 9 doesn’t scream high leverage reliever imo
3 see #2
4 Well that will cost money for his contract and posting right?
