It’s a new year, but MLBTR is bringing you the same up-to-the-minute transaction news and market evaluation. Lest there be a lull in the action, the MLBTR staff occasionally puts out original content. Let’s take a minute to gather that material and make sure you aren’t missing a beat. Here is some of the original content from MLBTR writers over the past week…
- Connor Byrne checked in on the Top 10 Remaining Free Agents and released his All-Decade Team. If you’ve got a bone to pick with Connor, join the club and find him in a weekly chat.
- The free agent market chugs right along, but just in case you missed anything, you can take stock of the starting pitching market here or the centerfield market here.
- From a team perspective, there are plenty of roster holes left to fill. To see where your team’s needs lie, check out the Remaining Needs Series, wrapped up with the AL East on New Year’s Eve.
- If you’re feeling combative, join us in a free agent faceoff!
- Jeff Todd did the uncomfortable work of reflection this week, putting together a list of The Most Notable Trades of the Last Decade.
- As always, we are eager to hear your opinion. Weigh in during our weekly chats or in the comments section of most posts, but always take the time to make your vote count in one our many weekly polls. This week, MLBTR readers voted Clayton Kershaw as the Starter of the Decade, pegged the Reds for between 85 and 89 wins, and denounced the Twins’ rotation additions by grading their offseason work with a C (an A grade received the least votes). Meanwhile, readers are split about whether the Rockies should trade Nolan Arenado, while firm to the tune of ~68% that the Cubs will trade a star, and that star is likeliest to be Kris Bryant.
- Lastly, a Dominic Smith trade has long been rumored, but he’s still a New York Met for now. Take a look at his trade candidacy – before it’s too late.
