Rounding up this week’s content from the MLBTR staff…
- We are nearing the end of MLBTR’s Offseason In Review Series, capping baseball’s long offseason with a retrospective on each team’s winter journey. This week the Yankees’, Indians’, and Reds’ offseason reports hit the MLBTR wire. Keep an eye out as this annual series wraps up shortly with the Dodgers’ 2018-2019 winter review.
- Connor Byrne polled MLBTR readers about the presumptive contenders who have disappointed thus far in 2019. MLBTR readers were generally bullish on the Red Sox and Yankees, while there was less confidence in the Rockies and Cubs chances of rebounding.
- Meanwhile, the baseball calendar waits for no one, so make sure to check out a status report on every 2018 Rule 5 draft pick, and a preview of opt-out decisions looming before the 2020 season.
- And of course, don’t forget to come chat with the MLBTR staff: Steve on Monday, Tim on Tuesday, Jeff on Thursday, while Mark Polishuk held his usual Sunday night chat on Saturday this week.
