The MLB bets we would make in 2019

The Astros to win the AL West? Sure, if you like easy money. How about Yasiel Puig for MVP or the Rangers to win a playoff game? Those are just two of the long shots our writers and reporters are eyeing.

McKeon, 88, remains active as Nationals adviser

Jack McKeon, serving as a special adviser to Nationals GM Mike Rizzo, will spend the season in Washington. He'll help minor league managers and coaches, and he'll evaluate prospects.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

A little dig at the Washington Nationals from Bryce Harper? This is what he answered when asked whether it was good for homegrown stars to remain with the same team: "If any other guy can really do that, stick with one team for his whole career, it has to work on both sides. The Angels were able to make that happen. Colorado was able to make that happen for (Nolan) Arenado. When you're able to do that, it's special. If you're able to spend it with one team, it's very special. It's good for each organization. It's good for the game to be able to get a superstar player like that the amount of money that he got, and (Trout) is very deserving of that."
