MLB 2018 Hot Stove Thread
Figure may start this now...

Just saw that Boston has indicated that John Farrell won't be back as manager next year. Can't really say that i'm surprised.

4th manager change already- joining Mets, Phillies, and Tigers. Same number as last season.

How many managers get fired after winning their division?

J.D. Martinez is going to be one of the hottest names on the FA Market.

I really hope the Dbacks can re-sign him, but not sure they have the cash to do so.

Another 30+ year old OFer who isn't good on defense and will add a ton of money to a payroll that already leads the league in future commitments? We need to be shedding salary and rebuilding, not doubling down on a guy who played 120 and 119 games in 2016 and 2017, respectively. If the Giants truly want to avoid a rebuild and are willing to spend oodles of money, their plan should be: trade for Stanton, sign Otani and then sign Machado. It'll make for a very top heavy roster, with way too many salary commitments for decline years, but it would make them a WC contender. That roster would absolutely not contend for the division, but they'd probably win a WC

I am a Dbacks fan :)

But the points about Martinez are well taken, and something we debate on the Dbacks Board.

i know. When I said "we," I was referring to the Giants and me as a fan of them.
