MLB 2020 Farm System Overview: Chicago White Sox

While we wait for the 2020 MLB season to get underway, it’s time to take a closer look at players who could one day be on opening day rosters. For the next month or two, we’ll be examining each team’s farm system, which will contain several prospects that will either one day be contributors for them, or could be used to acquire impact major leaguers.  … Continue reading MLB 2020 Farm System Overview: Chicago White Sox

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: St.Louis Cardinals

Considering that they barely had a winning record at the end of the first half, the fact that the Cardinals make it to the NLCS is certainly an accomplishment. It’s been reported that they don’t have much room to spend this offseason, so perhaps this will be a quiet offseason. Still, doing so could compromise their chances in the NL Central- I doubt they don’t … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: St.Louis Cardinals

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: San Francisco Giants

The Giants will need to put controversy aside after hiring manager Gabe Kapler, but with him and general manager Scott Harris on board, President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi has the personnel in place to guide San Francisco through their rebuild. Still, this is a fanbase that demands winning, so Zaidi likely will open to doing literally anything this offseason, with a focus on getting … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: San Francisco Giants

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Oakland Athletics

The A’s may have a very small budget, yet they’ve won over 90 games in back-to-back seasons, albeit only to lose in the wildcard game. Expect this to be a typical offseason for Billy Beane, who’ll look to add some cheap impact players to round out a roster that should be good enough to compete for the playoffs. Expected Direction: The Same Offseason As a … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Oakland Athletics

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Minnesota Twins

The Twins were arguably the most pleasant surprise of the season last year, winning over 100 games and breaking the home run record. They could walk into next season with the same roster and probably win the division, but if they fill out their offense, and more importantly, improve their pitching staff, this could be a serious World Series contender. Luckily for them, they have … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Minnesota Twins

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Los Angeles Angels

Is this the offseason the Angels build a contender around Mike Trout? They’ve been linked heavily to star pitcher Gerrit Cole, who may want to go back to Southern California. That is, if they offer him the largest contract, and even then, they’re not one player away from competing for a championship- general manager Billy Eppler needs to be smart in adding premier talent. Expected … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Los Angeles Angels

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Detroit Tigers

Owners of the #1 pick in next year’s draft, it’s safe to say the Tigers are in the middle of a very painful rebuild- their farm system still isn’t great and they have little to zero trade chips on their major league roster. So, what should general manager Al Avila do? Outside of shopping starting pitcher Matthew Boyd and buying low on some cheap veteran … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Detroit Tigers

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Chicago Cubs

Few teams have tougher decisions to make this offseason than the Cubs, who are contemplating making serious changes. That means potentially breaking up their World Series core in an effort to add to their farm system and fill needs- third baseman Kris Bryant and catcher Wilson Contreras are two players who could be on the move this offseason. With it looking like 2020 could be … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Chicago Cubs

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Chicago White Sox

The White Sox couldn’t reel in Manny Machado or Bryce Harper last offseason, but since that money hasn’t been spent yet, perhaps it can be used to sign one of the top free agents this year. Patience is clearly running out for them, as their rebuild has yet to show any signs of progressing- this could be a boom-or-bust offseason for general manager Rick Hahn. … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Chicago White Sox

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Atlanta Braves

Although their season ended in disappointing fashion, the Braves still have the financial flexibility and the young talent needed to be a sustainable winner in the future. The time for them to make a World Series push is now, and they should be expected to have a busy offseason. Expected Direction: All-In Braves Sign RP Will Smith Contract Details: Three Years, $40 Million Grade: 8.5/10 … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Atlanta Braves

Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Arizona Diamondbacks

Though they’ll likely be less active than they were last offseason, when they traded franchise icon Paul Goldschmidt, the Diamondbacks are in a very peculiar situation. They did win 85 games last season, but the focus has also been on restocking their farm system- it will be interesting to see what approach they take. Expected Direction: Remaining Competitive While Focusing on The Future Dbacks Sign … Continue reading Offseason Tracker and Analysis: Arizona Diamondbacks

2020 MLB Top Ten: First Basemen

After projecting who the top ten catchers would be next season, it’s time to continue on with our next position- first base. To no one’s surprise, this is a position stacked with sluggers, and unlike with the catcher list, nine of the ten players on this list were easy choices for this list, although the last spot came down to 5-6 qualifying players. So, who will … Continue reading 2020 MLB Top Ten: First Basemen
