well Jake Lamb Jersey , at feet.Major League Baseball and the players’ association ended a footwear flap Thursday, agreeing to loosen restrictions on the colors of spikes that may be used.Ben Zobrist, Kyle Schwarber and Steve Cishek of the Chicago Cubs wore black spikes in May despite a warning from the commissioner’s office that they were violating a regulation requiring that at least 51 percent of the exterior of a player’s shoes be the club’s designated primary shoe color. For the Cubs, that color is blue.The majority requirement was eliminated under the new agreement. Players may now wear shows with black, white, any colors on the team’s uniform and additional colors approved by the team.Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says “we believe that this agreement strikes the appropriate balance between the shared goal of permitting players to express their individuality while maintaining reasonable restrictions on shoe colors and designs.”The new rules take effect for next season.“Players welcome the expanded opportunity to express themselves and engage with fans through innovative design,” union head Tony Clark says.

Miami’s lone All-Star in 2018 took home the National League’s Silver Slugger award for catchers. In his breakout year, the 27-year-old hit .277 in 2018 with career highs in home runs (21) and RBIs (74) in 125 games for the Marlins. His recent performance combined with the lack of catching star power in the majors right now makes him one of the most valued trade targets as the meetings approach Dec. 9-13 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.But why would the Marlins want to trade their highest-value player? The Fish reportedly offered Realmuto two contract extensions during his breakout season. Both proposals were countered, but the two sides remained very far apart in terms of contract length and average annual value. They have not made any progress to a deal since then. Multiple teams are willing to trade with the Marlins for the coveted Realmuto Jeff Mathis Jersey , but the Marlins’ asking price remains high. The New York Mets have been the most aggressive in pursuing Realmuto. The Mets are willing to offer one of their three core players—BrandonNimmo, MichaelConforto and AmedRosario—for the Marlins’ backstop. According to MLB Network’s Jim Bowden, the Marlins would either need Conforto or Rosario included in the trade to start talks with their NL East rivals. Other landing spots for the catcher include the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros.Keep in mind, the Marlins will also likely "buy" at this year’s Winter Meetings to address several other roster concerns. They had the worst bullpen ERA in the majors in 2018 at an abysmal 5.34 ERA. Some of the top free-agent candidates to strengthen a young bullpen include Adam Ottavino (age 33), Joakim Soria (35), Jeurys Familia (29), David Robertson (34) http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey , and Oliver Perez (37). Long-time Marlin-killer Tyler Clippard (34) is on the free agent market as well. Any one of those names mentioned should bring both late-game experience and a veteran presence. The Marlins bullpen will develop with time, but it needs a veteran to mentor and stabilize the hard-throwing bullpen.Thursday’s Fish Stripes roundtable offered plenty of other possible fits.The Marlins began to address their power issue by signing former Pittsburgh Pirates first-baseman Pedro Alvarez. Alvarez, 32, accepted a minor league deal with an invite to spring training last week. Alvarez will compete with Peter O’Brien and Garrett Cooper for the starting first-base job in spring training.The Winter Meetings will conclude with the Rule 5 Draft on Dec. 13. For the time being, the Marlins’ 40-man roster is full, so they would need to make room between now and then in order to participate in the major league phase of the draft.
