Note: you may not want to go to Port St. Lucie in February and March. Why? Because Andy Martino, who covers the Mets for the New York Daily News, and who used to cover the Phillies, has a promise to keep.  From a report he made from the Winter Meetings last week:

Here’s some of what we’ve been able to gather during the first day here in Florida. Lots of information swirling around the Twitter, some of it questionable. For example, if the Phillies sign Cliff Lee, I’ll cover spring training in a Speedo.

And the people in the Port St. Lucie press box thought I was annoying last spring!

LAS VEGAS — The White Sox have acquired pitcher Ivan Nova from the Pirates. No word yet on what the Pirates are getting back. The deal is except for the medicals, Ken Rosenthal reports.

Nova posted a 4.19 ERA and 114/35 K/BB ratio in 161 innings across 29 starts in 2018. He’s basically an innings eater at this point who can probably be expected to be around a league average pitcher. He’ll make $8.5 million in 2019.
