Mets Offseason

NYM- Mookie Betts
BOS- Noah Syndergaard

Betts solves the Mets RF issue and helps solidify the top of the order. Syndergaard seems to be out-of-favor in NY. By resigning Wheeler, Noah becomes expendable.

RP Dellin Betancis 3 years $36 mil

LF- Jeff McNeil

CL- Edwin Diaz

You do realize that Cespedes will be back in RF next year right, I know Betts is younger and better, but you just created a bigger problem.

2.) 16 Nov 2019 17:14:06
Betts would start. Cespedes, if he's even healthy, would go to the bench.

Not that much of a problem.

White Sox Offseason

Chicago only has roughly $35 million in payroll taken up for 2020. With the young cheap talent they have, they can go out and make some moves.

Free Agents
SP Gerrit Cole 6 year $200 million
OF Marcel Ozuna 5 year $150 million
DH Jose Abreu 3 year $60 million

C- James McCann

DH- Jose Abreu

SP- Gerrit Cole
SP- Lucas Giolito
SP- Reynaldo Lopez
SP- Dylan Cease
SP- Michael Kopech


1.) 08 Oct 2019 18:54:34
They will not have to go anywhere near 3/ 60 for Abreu. Think more 2/ 20 or 1 with a mutual option.



19 Jun 2019 20:55:16

Cleveland says no to Eaton.

2.) 21 Jun 2019 16:34:55
Tribeaholic4Life, either way, they can get something for him. Whether it's Cleveland or another playoff team. However, their recent surge may change their plans. If they decide to sell I can see them dipping right back into the FA market because they have a lot of young controllable hitters that they need to take advantage of.

3.) 22 Jun 2019 17:29:22
The Indians have a long history of wanting to deal with controllable contracts that are club friendly. They have of's on the caliber of Eaton what they should have been doing for a couple of years is acquiring a corner of (rh) with some power. Passed up too many opportunities to do so in the offseason and it's glaringly obvious by what's happened this year.



22 May 2019 17:02:49

SD- Trevor Bauer
CLE- Luis Patino, Ryan Weathers & Josh Naylor

Bauer has a year and a half left on his contract. He is perfect for SD who can let him go if his price is too high after his contract. SD has a ton of arms in the minors who will be ready by 2020/2021. He also gives them a Bonafide Ace for a playoff push this year.

SD- Zach Wheeler
NYM- Cal Quantril

Wheeler gives SD a very solid #3 who is a FA at the end of the year. He is a place holder for Gore who will be up in 2020 and a he gives them a 3rd pitcher for a playoff series.

C Francisco Mejia
1B Eric Hosmer
2B Luis Urias (call up)
3B Manny Machado
SS Fernando Tatis Jr
LF Will Myers
CF Franmil Reyes
RF Hunter Renfroe

SP Trevor Bauer
SP Chris Paddack
SP Zach Wheeler
SP Matt Strahm
SP Joey Lucchesi


1.) 24 May 2019 15:45:55
That is a ton that the Padres would be giving up to a guy that is due for his last arbitration year and a pay increase. You're getting rid of 2 of the best arms that they have coming up in 2020/ 2021 like you alluded to. Patino from what i've heard is close to off limits. Weathers and Naylor could be had though.

The wheeler deal would be perfect for them.



28 Dec 2018 16:00:30

Is it just me, or have the Mariners had a really good offseason and actually have a decent team to put out for 2019 while they focus on the future.

C- Omar Narvaez
1B- Jay Bruce
2B- Dee Gordon
3B- Kyle Seager
SS- JP Crawford
LF- Mitch Haniger
CF- Mallex Smith
RF- Domingo Santana
DH- Edwin Encarnacion

SP- Felix Hernandez
SP- Mike Leake
SP- Erasmo Ramirez
SP- Wade LeBlanc
SP- Justice Sheffield

Dont get me wrong this team won't compete in the West, but there is a lot of good young talent on the roster, and they have completely revamped their farm. I think they have had one of the better offseasons.


1.) 28 Dec 2018 16:17:54
They will be average like always.

2.) 28 Dec 2018 18:23:23
Mediocre at best and they aren't done trading, Encarnacion, Bruce, and Leake could still or will be traded.

we found the Cubs fan, everyone.

2.) 19 Mar 2019 01:55:32
The Cubs winning the division by 16 games is the most ridiculous thing I've seen on this site, perhaps ever.

3.) 20 Mar 2019 15:10:38
1, not a Cubs fan.
2, in the past six seasons, at least one team has won their division by 12 games or more.
3, the Cubs now have Hamels and Darvish (combined for 20 starts for CHC last season) replacing Chatwood and Montgomery (4.75 ERA combined last season) .
4, They get Bryant back (missed 60 games last season) .
5, They're one of the deepest teams in the league to offset injuries.

They may not win by 16, but they will win 100 games and easily win the division.

4.) 20 Mar 2019 15:31:57
The NL Central is probably the best division in baseball. The Cardinals got better. The Reds got better. The Brewers are really damn good. To suggest the Cubs, who didn't even win the division last year suddenly take an improved division by 16 games is completely laughable.

You also have the Brewers losing 12 more games from 2018. Did you think last season was a total fluke?

As far as "deepest team". I'm confused by that suggestion. They have literally zero farm system. Their bullpen is atrocious. Their bench depth isn't what it was praised to be. And several of their "stars" aren't that good (Zobrist, Schwarber, Heyward, Happ) .

They might win the division. It will, by no means be "easily".

5.) 21 Mar 2019 16:23:44
Flawed logic, you completely ignore the Brewers won the division last year and yes it was because of the one game playoff. But they have improved from last year, the Cardinals have gotten better, and the Reds have gotten better, and the Pirates are the Pirates, so winning the division by 16 games and winning 100 games in that division won't happen.

6.) 01 Oct 2019 18:14:00
That Cubs prediction. Yikes.



29 Jan 2019 16:00:33
I think Machado and/or Harper should sign a contract with an opt-out after 1 year. The market just isn't there this year. I don't see them chancing it and signing a 1 year deal, but i think they will require an opt-out after year one to give them a chance to enter next year (age 27) to see if the market is better.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 00:29:20
Both Arrieta and Hosmer signed very generous deals late into the winter. Arrieta didn't even sign until March 12th last year.

There is zero reason for either of those guys to panic yet. They'll get paid.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 15:00:21
Although i agree they shouldn't panic, my comment was more towards what i think would be best for them. Outside of Philly and Chicago (AL) there doesn't seem to be anyone willing to give Machado anywhere near what he is wanting. As for Harper, i think the only teams in are Philly and Washington. Unless another team comes from nowhere (which is very possible) and offers a crazy deal, then i could easily see them pushing for an opt-out after year one to at least give them an option.

3.) 20 Mar 2019 15:33:43
23 years, $630 million combined.

The market seemed to work out just fine for them.

White Sox 2020

The Farm and available money the Sox have is exciting for 2020. They will not compete in 2019, but if they can sign 1/2 good FA this year, then sign 1/2 more next year this team has a legit shot to make a very fast turnaround.

Potential 2020 Roster

C- Yasmani Grandal (sign 19)
1B- Paul Goldschmidt (sign 2020)
2B- Yoan Moncada
3B- Manny Machado (sign 19)
SS- Tim Anderson
LF- Eloy Jiminez
CF- Luis Robert
RF- Blake Rutherford
DH- Yonder Alonso

SP- Gerrit Cole (sign 2020)
SP- Micahel Kopesh
SP- Lucas Giolito
SP- Dylan Cease
SP- Dane Dunning


1.) 18 Dec 2018 15:50:50
to poke some holes in this, I also know this is hypothetical, but for first base why not just resign Jose Abreu? Personally I don't see them getting Machado or Harper, but I could be wrong. Garret Cole huh, good luck outbidding the Yankees who have wanted him since they drafted him in 2008 and tried trading for him last offseason. I also want to point out that the biggest contract they every signed a free agent to was Abreu for 68 million. They say they have all this money, but they never use it.

I did it with Roster bc i think people are overlooking their overall roster. They have made some under the radar moves. They're really only one, maybe two moves away from actually being a contender in the Central.

In terms of big moves, yes. I think they make a bullpen and a bench move, but i think they're in a spot where they will be a respectable team with a solid core and they are hoping for a few breakouts that will put them in the playoff tier.
