The ice cold MLB free agent market might be starting to thaw, with one of the winter’s biggest targets apparently landing in a new home. The San Diego Padres have reportedly agreed to terms with first baseman Eric Hosmer, per Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
This is just the third free agent contract longer than three years this winter, along with Yu Darvish to the Cubs (6 years, $126 million) and outfielder Lorenzo Cain to the Royals (5 years, $80 million), the latter a teammate of Hosmer’s in Kansas City for seven seasons.
Wil Myers hit 58 home runs, 58 Ted Ginn Jr Jersey doubles and stole 48 bases the last two seasons as San Diego’s first baseman while hitting .251/.332/.462, a 112 OPS+, reportedly told the team in December he would be willing to move to the outfield if the Padres signed a first baseman this winter, per AJ Cassavell of MLB.com.
The NHL decided that pausing its season for a few weeks and letting players risk injury for someone else wasn’t worth taking advantage of a once-every-four-years chance to grow the sport locally and internationally.

The winner of the Finland-Sweden game will advance to face Kendall Coyne and the American women in the semifinal with a trip to the gold medal game on the line. A dozen years ago, Sweden pulled off one of women’s hockey’s biggest upsets by knocking out the U.S. in the semifinals, so they’ll try to pull off that miracle again starting with a win over Finland.
The other three men’s games will see Switzerland take on South Korea, Slovenia face Slovakia, and Germany against Norway. The Slovenia-Slovakia game will be of particular interest to U.S. fans as that result will have an impact on the final results in Group B.
The Americans can clinch the top spot in Group B with a win over the Russians on Saturday, which would earn a bye to the quarterfinals.
