Time for offseason discussion for us less fortunate fans. 

Any rumors/minor news can go here. Start a new thread for any notable trades/signings.

Nationals ownership and upper management are flying out to Vegas to make one last attempt to re-sign Bryce Harper.

Honestly, unless the Lerners are willing to go over the luxury tax threshold again, I cant think of anything more disastrous than inking Bryce to a 30+ AAV contract. They simply have too many holes/question marks on the current roster.

Two questions I have going into this offseason

1. Does David Price opt out? He has seemed to be unhappy in Boston,  but I wonder how much that has to do with his poor performance until the second half of this season.

2. Do the Yankees deal Sonny Gray, and if so, for what?

Harper should be a fun situation to watch. Given the Cubs loss last night I expect them to make an offer.

1.  I believe he's already said he won't be opting out, hasn't he?  I see no way he does.  

2.  I think they roll the dice with him again next and see if he can right the ship over the offseason.  They wouldn't get much at all for him if they dealt him, and he won't be that expensive.

Cubs were going to be in on Harper regardless of the season outcome.  Their funny money is going to start rolling in this year and they purposely stayed under the cap this year so that they can blow way past it in 2019 and 2020.

The Diamondbacks are trading David Peralta and letting Corbin/Pollock walk in FA.  Bring on the rebuild.

I missed that Pollock was a FA this offseason.  He's gonna be a sneaky good pickup for someone this year.  

I'm thinking Corbin signs a really big deal with the Yankees.

Corbin to NYY seems like a foregone conclusion, unless the Yanks are scared off by his poor EV-against.

Yanks, Dodgers, or Phillies for Machado. Harper to Cubs or Boston (*vomits*). Maybe Harper takes a one year do-over deal with Washington because the vets are still good and he can bounce back from the latest hidden injuries that cratered his season again.

Harper getting a 1 year bounce-back deal would basically be a 10 year contract at a slightly lower expect AAV with tons of player options. Which is what I expect Boras will be gunning for anyway.

Giants are eyeing Brewers assistant GM Matt Arnold to take over for Bobby Evans as GM. First name that has been associated with the opening.

Haha. I'd be surprised if he's the one. How often do we see the first name associated with an opening be the guy that is actually hired?

I know but our FO is about to get raided. Arnold and Ray Montgomery are each going to be up for jobs.

Hopefully we POBO Stearns and GM Arnold.
