    2017-18 MLB Offseason Thread

    Since there's no thread for a MLB offseason thread, I would like to start one to keep up with offseason player signings, firing and hiring of managers, and so on.

    Anyways, here's perhaps the biggest news of the offseason yet:

    The New York Yankees and Miami Marlins have agreed to a trade that would send reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the Bronx, according to multiple reports Saturday.


    The trade has yet to become official, as Stanton must still agree to the terms as stipulated by his no-trade clause and pass a physical.


    Yankees infielder Starlin Castro would go to Miami as part of the deal, a source familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. New York would also send prospects Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers to the Marlins in the trade, according to multiple reports and first reported by the New York Post.

    Stanton, 28, is owed $295 million over the next 10 years. The Yankees would be on the hook for $265 million of that, with the Marlins kicking in $30 million as part of the deal, according to multiple reports and first reported by The Athletic.
    That's a huge move by the Yanks to get the hottest batter in the league no doubt. They need to go after pitching cause Sabathia's getting on up there with age and Tanaka's their marquee pitcher of the team. I won't be surprised if the Yanks were to go after a big name pitcher later in the offseason.

    Fucking hell.

    At least that answers my “what’s worse than Stanton to the Giants?” question.

    It's crazy to think that the Yankees now have two of the top 4 players in WAR last season. As a Jays fan all I have to say is that sucks.

    Fuck I love Stanton as a player, but Castro going to the Marlins is a steal even with the money involved going their way. Judge and Stanton together can we just throw up the White Flag already?

    I think I drafted him in Fantasy last year he played with the Cubs last Season before being traded right? Yeah I had hopes he would do well, but he was too damn frustrating a player to keep on my team fuck him

    Re: 2017-18 MLB Offseason Thread

    The Marlins for 2018 is starting to shape up like the Marlins of 1998 when they sold all their talent to other teams:

    The disbandment of the Miami Marlins roster continues, as the team has traded All-Star left fielder Marcell Ozuna to the St. Louis Cardinals, a source confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday.

    The deal, first reported by SiriusXM, is pending a physical. It is unclear what the Marlins are getting in return.
    This "fire sale" of the Marlins isn't doing them any good. I don't know what the hell Jeter's doing to this team, but it's certain that they won't reach the playoffs anytime soon.

    Its not really Jeter. The only questionable move I've seen from him is not going to the winter meetings, which makes no sense to me at all. But it's the owner who wants to clear off all the money he can and Jeter is just the face. Big move for the Cardinals though, and I am EXTREMELY excited about this upcoming season. The Yankees are back. We still could use another SP, but at least we have Severino, Tanaka, and Gray. CC should be resigned to a one year deal I would guess. I also saw they may try to trade for either Gerritt Cole or Chris Archer.

    I feel bad for Marlins fans. It's gotta be insane trying to follow a team and be loyal when this happens every couple years. Even with new owners.

    Curious to see what happens with Yelich. I doubt the Braves would part with an actual surplus package to get him but it sounds like the Marlins took a bit of a light package for Ozuna. It's been fun reading proposals and thinking about a Yelich, Ender and Acuna outfield at least.

    It really is ridiculously unfair to Marlins fans especially after they had to pay so much for that new stadium just for the team to be as cheap as possible.

    I read Yelich isnt on the market now that they traded Ozuna, but you never know with them.

    He already wanted out. I can't imagine he wants to stay now. I think the usual suspects will end up being serious bidders. Giants/Sox and maybe even someone like the White Sox and Cubs.

    So is Ozuna going to be playing CF in St. Louis? I really want to see him move back to CF.

    Don't know much about their squad but I think they moved him from center for a reason. I think he mostly projects as a LF

    I suppose you can somehow make sense out of him paying himself $5 million a year while he guts the team to "cut costs" and trades the NL MVP to his boys in NY.

    How there wasn't an investigation into this trade is hilarious. At least just for show after they decimated us for doing the same shit internationally as everyone else.

    We got anthropolous out of it and I'm cool with that. But an obvious spot check on collusion would have been nice.

    Also the fact that when the Blue Jays made that huge trade with the Marlins a few years back there was an immediate investigation.

    They were too busy laughing at the other trade the Jays made where they traded Thor for RA Dickey’s 36 mph fastball.
