    Might as well start talking about 2021

    FWIW, for years the conventional wisdom was to look at Rockies' hitters' road numbers to try to get a better sense of how they'd perform if acquired by another team, but in recent years there has been very clear research that Rockies' hitters' road numbers are artificially low because it is so...

    Sure, but Molina is a FA and Perez is in KC for one more year, $14M salary and $10.5M AAV. If KC is willing to move him this offseason for a reasonable price, that could work too.

    Some smoke around all of Schwarber, Kluber, Molina, to NY. I wanted Salvador Perez a couple years ago to team with Sanchez and Molina would be similar, someone who could work with Gary alongside the coaching staff. It wouldn't be too fair to Higgy but also he has not shown the ability to stay...

    Baseball Is Broken (off the field/labor relations etc.)

    It is batshit insane that NL teams are having to make personnel decisions without knowing if there will be a DH in the NL in 2021 or not.

    Kyle Schwarber too, the Yankees have been after him since 2016 although unless he can back up Voit at 1B (he has almost no experience there), he’s not a great fit for their current roster although they really could use the LH power.

    Julian McWilliams of the Boston Globe voted him 5th, no one else voted for him, that was enough to end up 12th. https://bbwaa.com/20-al-mvp-ballots/

    Non-tender deadline tomorrow, NY will certainly tender Sanchez around $5M and the only other decisions are marginal relievers like Heller and Cessa and Holder.

    They are a combined 4-19-1 outside the division, so that makes sense.

    Yu Darvish has 3/63 left on his AAV (3/59 in actual money), I thought it was more. I have always liked him and he had a ridiculous 93/14 K/BB ratio this year in 76 innings, I would bundle some of that young pitching depth and take a run at him as a #2 behind Cole.

    MLB clearly needs to do the right thing here and reverse the trade with the Cardinals. :)

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    Actually Morton had tons of interest but just as in his previous free agency two years ago, he only wants to play for a team near his Florida home, so he only really considered ATL and TB.

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    It was an unusual situation, but to be clear, he was bitching about being skipped after putting up a 10.29 ERA in his first two starts this year. If you want your team to happily pay you $17M the following season, you need to be more reliable than that IMO. I wouldn't really hold that against...

    MLB Offseason 2020 News & Notes

    Bauer is an even more perfect fit if he really still wants just a one year deal since the Mets just got a $24M windfall from the Cano suspension (NY still gets the $4M from SEA somehow).

    FWIW, Voit has a .915 OPS in 892 regular season PAs for NY, LeMahieu has a .922 OPS in 871 PAs for NY. If you factor in that 161 of Voit's in 2019 were while trying to play through a sports hernia because everyone else on the team was hurt (.715 OPS), I think Voit is a slightly better offensive...

    He is likely a platoon corner OF, .717 career OPS against RHP, .912 against LHP.
