MLB Hot Stove 2018
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:24:31 pm »
Winter meatings are upon us.

What are your teams biggest needs and which players would you like to see them pursue ?

Giants need middle relief help and an upgrade in CF (/OF) wouldn't hurt.
Linked to Bradley Jr and Stanton. I'd take JBJ before Stanton for sure. Looking for a backup to Posey as well.
Giants have a bottom 5 farm league so it's all or nothing in 2018.

Cubs

Need pitching.  Arrieta and Lackey are free agents.  Arrieta is going to be too expensive to keep. 
Closer Wade Davis is also a free agent, and probably too expensive.

Hoping they can keep Arrieta (slim chance) and also grab Alex Cobb from the Rays. 
Zach Britton from the Orioles would be a good closer, but not sure what they'd have to give up for him.

Giants in the mix for Ohtani. Yankees, Rangers and Mariners there too.

Anyone know about this "phenom"?
I certainly know his "ability" to pitch and play anywhere in the field won't transfer to the MLB but whatever. He's kind of a cheap investment when it comes to the current CBA.

Cards acquire Ozuna from Marlins.  And they needed some offensive help.  Then they turn around and trade Piscotty to Oakland so he can be closer to his family (his mom is suffering through Lou Gherig's Disease).  Classiest organization in sports.

Twins fans will be lining up to buy flat-bill, crooked-wearing hats in honor of Fernando Rodney.

Nats so far - Matt Adams and re-signing Howie Kendrick. Still need a 5th starter but the rest of the team looks filled out although rumors have been swirling that they're interested in Yelich and Realmuto if the Marlins deal those guys. Not sure what it would take but Mike Rizzo is feisty when it comes to getting a deal done. Biggest acquisition of the offseason is Dave Martinez who will hopefully be the 1st manager here not to have postseason idiot brain freeze.

Easily the most underpriced, highly talented dude left around the stove who clearly wants to be moved.
Rumors say he's furious with Marlins front office. I'm still holding hope the Giants grab him somehow, been hoping this since the winter meetings in December but a near 100 loss season has the Giants wanting to escape the luxury tax again. 
Signed the same year as Stanton's 10 year 743838mm deal, he took a team friendly contract to win. Thems the breaks.
