Darvish, Strasburg split Dogville

MYRTLE BEACH (SC)—A healthy free agent class boosts BVL salaries for a third straight year. Ten bids result in 7 uniform changes. Payroll jumps 81 shekels and average salaries rise to 6.11s.

Banksville’s Fab Four receive the greatest interest: (1) NYC, TOR, BKL offer Yu Darvish max deals; Dogs bail. Roll off! NYC 5, TOR 9, BKL 9. Upon further review, Toronto’s first-year offer is void; Darvish a Bruiser. (2) Bryce Harper stays in Banksville despite 5 max bids. (3) Kyle Seager goes to Toronto without a fight. (4) Dogs bail on Stephen Strasburg. NEG, NYC, NYK in roll off No. 2: New England 18, NYC 9, NYK 7. Strasburg’s a Hawk.

Foys lose Andrelton Simmons, Jason Heyward to Toronto. Yasmani Grandal waves Scrapper Nation goodbye, signs with HOM. Giancarlo Stanton returns to Knights.

Three crack Norm Cash cap
BCF, TOR, BKL rise above 377s, setting a cap increase for the first time. NYC has lowest payroll, 4.40s per player.
