Ari in Philadelphia and Gerry in Piscataway, the baseball crew, return to chat about the slow offseason so far in MLB.   The two biggest names, Bryce Harper currently of the Nationals, and Manny Machado who last played with the Dodgers, have yet to sign with a team for 2019.   We discuss the lack of activity, why owners are getting so cheap, and how the practice of holding out for free agents is hurting the sport.  Later, we cover moves that actually took place, including the Dodgers trade of Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp to the Reds and the subsequent signing of OF A.J. Pollock.  The Yankees add some depth with 2B D.J. LeMahieu and RP Adam Ottavino, plus others, and the Mets... Ari will break down what the Mets did.  All this and more as we cover the MLB Offseason so far in the City.
