    Default The MLB Offseason Hot Stove: 2018-19 Style

    While the Red Sox are getting their duck boats in a row, it’s time for everyone else to start making the moves they hope will have them on top next October.

    Can Washington get Harper to stay? Do they want to?

    Which team will be the suckers for Manny Machado?

    Will someone field a pitching staff of pure 2-3 inning guys?

    Harper may land in Chicago with the Cubs and Machado in New York with the Yankees.

    Are home runs, strike outs and walks the future of baseball? They certainly were the story this past season.

    I certainly hope not.

    Will be interesting to see who ponies up for the big free agents.

    Machado is definitely a solid candidate for the pinstripes - a total asshole that nobody likes with a huge price tag. PERFECT Yankee...

    so apparently Realmuto wants out. I was really hoping that he'd see the promise in some of the guys he was around this year and want to stay.

    NYY resigns Brett Gardner on a 1 year deal. Hopefully he has a better year next year.

    RIP #44 Willie McCovey. San Francisco LEGEND.

    While Willie Mays may be the best Giant of All-Time, he was a NY Giant first. Willie McCovey was a SF Giant. HOF player and HOF person for his work around the community for all of these years. He was the guy my Dad and his friends that grew up in NORCAL in the 60s talked about. I saw him play in 1979 & 1980 in his final years in SF. He was a part time player by then, but then you would look on the back of his baseball card and see the stats....DAMN!

    ROY in 1959. MVP in 1969. 6 time All-Star. 521 HR. HOF.

    Help Wanted- Baltimore Orioles baseball team needs GM and Manager. Apply in person mornings 9-noon M-F. Bring resume. Must be able to work with meddling owner and family. We have the worst team in MLB and also the worst farm system. Looking for the type person who can take chicken shit and turn it into chicken soup.

    ^^^

    Is there an updated list since the season was over? I know the Royals farm system was way at the bottom prior to the draft. They went really heavy on college arms, which I think was an excellent move. Low A team won the league championship, and those are the kids I expect to make and impact in the bigs. Gonna take time though. I imagine the O's are in the same boat.

    Here are a couple of the latest MLB Farm System rankings. There are several others on a few other websites as well.

    ..... and no, the Orioles and Royals are not last..... Lower half though....

    Yeah I I told you guys there was no chance he was leaving.

    I have a feeling the Dodgers are going to go all in on that other dickhead Bryce Harper.
