    MLB 2018-19 MLB Offseason Thread




    The 2018-19 MLB offseason is here! So let's get some discussion going.

    Here's some news that has happened so far: Clayton Kershaw has signed a three-year extension with the Dodgers through 2021.

    I think it's obviously a smart move to keep him in Los Angeles for awhile. I know the previous season was rough for him, but I believe he can bounce back in his true form in 2019. He's young and he's still one among the best stud pitchers in baseball today.

    Well my Phillies are thirsty as fuck to be a viable team in the NL East again with plenty of money to spend and I want Harper as well. Machado is a FA as well I'm sure the Dodgers will want to throw him a bone to keep him, but wherever he goes he's going to make some serious bread.

    It's very scary to think if the Yankees get him, cause they got a very good batting roster consisting of Sanchez, Stanton, Gregorius, Andujar, and Torres. Adding him to the roster, and maybe a good pitcher, that team would be a force in the league, and could make the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry the most intense in ages.

    If Harper went to the Cubs, the batting roster would be much more stronger. I'd rather have Harper go there besides the Yankees.

    But it would nice if he went to Braves, but the organization won't bother taking risks of spending money on players like Harper.

    When did he claim to want to play for a specific team?

    Maybe he's referring to that time in the summer when Harper trolled Cubs fans by posting a pic of himself with Kris Bryant? Or the one the other day where he was wearing a Bulls hat? Either way, sounds like OMB may have gotten worked and buried.

    I'm waiting to be depressed at the massive trades we make and the prospects we give up.

    If Kluber is really being moved he would be perfect for the Braves. Don't know what the cost would be. Without really looking at surplus values I'd be ok including Inciarte + Wright and other stuff. Let's go nuts and sign Brantley and Pollock then figure out catcher and the bullpen.

    I would absolutely love to see Kluber play for the Braves in 2019.

    This is a big opportunity for them to make a huge move to upgrade our pitching rotation with Foltynewicz, Newcomb and Teheran.

    Please make it happen.

    I'd start the offer with Inciarte and Newcomb. Then get into the next tier of prospects. We have enough starters ready to play that we can cash in whatever value Newk has for a real upgrade.

    I'd bet that Soroka/Touki would put up comparable production to Newk.

    We need a lot more than that. Bullpen was terrible and upgrading at catcher would be nice. The Rangers cutting Chironos was a huge surprise so that adds another possibility to the mix.

    I'll eat my own dick if we sign Harper. If we're spending 30M+ on an outfielder I might prefer trading Ender especially in a package for Kluber/Carrasco and then signing 2 of Brantley/Pollock/Cutch and tendering Duvall to rotate.

    No opt outs. He'll get a better deal from someone. I wouldn't be surprised if he signed for like 5 years at big dollars with an opt out after 3 or something

    Harper's gonna get paid big no matter what. TBH, I wouldn't want the Braves to sign him because he's a hassle despite his skills he displays on the field. It's his attitude that I don't like. It's crazy for him to turn down a 10-year $300 million contract from the Nationals to keep him, he probably doesn't want to be with them. Most of the news are saying that he may sign with the Phillies, which I'm confused why exactly? I'd rather stay with them rather than go to the Phillies because they have more talent on the roster than the Nats.

    He's gonna go wherever he gets the higher AAV. Phillies are desperate for starpower and I can see them overpaying for Harper and/or Machado.

    Phillies can be a real threat next season
