I’m calling it winter. The wind is howling through my windows this morning and I needed two blankets last night.
Next month MLB’s Winter Meetings take place. After observing the just-concluded GM meetings, here are Jerry Crasnick of ESPN’s thoughts about what to watch for at the upcoming gathering:
- How active will the trade market be?
- How serious are the Cincinnati Reds about making trades?
- What do the Detroit Tigers need to do to become relevant in the AL Central again?
- How can new team president Mark Shapiro and interim GM Tony LaCava plug the pitching holes in Toronto?
- How do the St. Louis Cardinals move on from the loss of Lance Lynn to Tommy John surgery?
Here is a post from ESPN with upcoming important dates in the offseason and a bunch of links from their writers to stories of free agency, offseason storylines and trades already made.
