Off Season Thread

Post by Shedman »

This is a thread in which I will rate all major league acquisitions by all teams. I will score them from 0-5 based upon the quality of the acquisition. I do not score minor league acquisitions or arbitration deals unless they include a FA year. So far the Off Season has been pretty slow with only a few moves as follows.

The Marlins sign Miguel Rojas for a 2 .

Rockies -Cron(3)Senzatela(1)............................................................................................................4
Cardinals -Wainwright(3).................................................................................................................3

White Sox - Kimbrel(3)....................................................................................................................3

Giants - Posey(3)...........................................................................................................................3

Nationals - Escobar(2).....................................................................................................................2

Marlins - Rojas(2)..........................................................................................................................2

Marcus Semien has hired Scott Boras, so he is looking for a big payday.

I sure would like to see Kole Calhoun in a Pirate uniform next year. Time for Cherington to step up.

Uh-Oh, I didn't know that Boras was Reynolds agent. Looks like he is about to become a clubhouse cancer.

The Mariners have declined Kyle Seagers option for next year. He look to be next year's Adam Duvall. Come on Ben!

The Pirates don't need an old 3rd baseman.

Regardless of age, 35 HR's is 35 HR's.

.285 on base percentage.
Decreasing defensive skills.
Increased strikeout rates.
34 years old.

Not what a rebuilding team needs.
