Hope everyone had a merry Christmas and is enjoying a happy Hanukkah.

We had a busy week leading up to the holiday. Did the Phillies make a good move acquiring Clay Buchholz from the Red Sox? Will Ivan Nova continue his solid performance with his new contract in 2017 that he had after arriving in Pittsburgh?

Plus, the biggest name on the Free Agent market has a new home. The Cleveland Indians land Edwin Encarnacion’s big bat for 3 years. We debate if this move makes them contenders again next season.

Finally, will Jose Bautista end up back in Toronto? The possibility is looming and we tell you if is worth it for the Blue Jays.

All that plus the start of our AL West breakdown on the final show of 2016!
