Now that the 2018 MLB season is in the books, let's take a look ahead...

No shoulder surgery expected for Chris Sale

Clayton Kershaw agrees to 3-year, $93 million deal to stay with Dodgers

Indians will listen to trade offers on veteran players

And a look back...

Willie McCovey’s presence was one of a kind

I was lucky enough to watch Willie McCovey play in spring training games in Phoenix when I was a kid, and I was a fan. He was a giant in more ways than one and from all accounts, an admirable human being.

Best,

Geoff

that offer was made on September 26th. It had been said all along that a 10 year, $300 million offer was the starting point. That offer was never going to be taken. All that being said, the Nationals won't be a better team without him but I believe he will sign somewhere else. The Nats have a really good outfield without him and have more pressing interests including starting pitching.

Anyone would be crazy to give him a long-term contract with his questionable knee health. It’s just too important for turning on a baseball, taking an extra base, cutting off a ball in the gap. I can’t think of another body part that takes more punishment in baseball.

Harper will be grossly overpaid relative to his talent. He's had a couple good years but overall he is far from the dominant force he was projected to be, even putting aside the considerable injury problems. And yet from a short term ticket sales standpoint, the executives for some big market teams will decide a big contract makes sense and they will be correct. So Harper will make 4 times as much as players who are 75% as good as him.

He puts people in the stands. Kids love him. Moms love him. This is what elevates his contract, and seperates him from superstar players such as Manny Machado. As good as Machado is, he does not draw fans just to see him. Bryce Harper does. So yes, it is a business decision seperate from a baseball decision as well.
