It’s been a while since I tapped into doing some MLB Content! So, I thought I’d get some reaction to the ongoing Astros and Red Sox scandals along with some Hall of Fame talk.

What an unbelievable day in the world of baseball.

Dallas Keuchel has signed with the Chicago White Sox for a contract worth 3 years/$54-$56 million according to Ken Rosenthal. The 31-year-old lefty waited last season and wound up signing into the season with the Atlanta Braves. Let’s take a look at what he brings to the South Siders.
