    The 2019/2020 MLB Hot Stove League Thread

    The series is over..the parade is done (Dozier looked like he was having the time of his life!!).

    Now it is time to start thinking about what teams are going to look like next year when spring training rolls around...

    We already know that Strasburg has opted out. We know that Rendon is going to the highest bidder.

    What are the Red Sox going to do with Betts & Martinez?

    Where is Gerritt Cole going? - Feels like the Angels is a natural destination for him.

    Very true - have seen some of the nominees, for most categories, it has been the players that most of us have been talking about all season!

    JD Martinez opts to stay in Boston for at least one more year at about $21 million. Has another opt out in his contract after the 2020 season.

    The Yankees don't put a qualifying offer on Didi, so no compensation if someone else signs him.

    Yordan Alvarez is the AL Rookie of the Year.

    Pete Alonso is the NL Rookie of the Year.

    Don't think either of those results are a surprise - had Tatis not gotten injured, think it would have been a much tighter race in the NL...

    In other news - Mike Fiers said in an interview that the Astros have been illegally using cameras to steal signs and relay them to hitters. If any part of allegations are true, it would feel like the Astros are becoming the Patriots of MLB!

    I know it was Soroka/Tatis in 2nd/3rd in the NL.

    But didn't see who finished 2nd/3rd in the AL. -- Just looked it up and it was John Means and Brandon Lowe. Eloy finished 4th, Cavan Biggio 5th. Vlad nowhere to be found...

    A lot more information starting to come out about the Astros and their sign stealing. Curious to see how MLB deals with them. Have to assume a major fine, and probably draft picks lost??

    Trout/Bellinger are your MVP's for the year. No argument with Bellinger, but Trout seems to be a bit of a stretch, since he missed at least a month with injury - felt like a good year for Bregman or LeMahieu to win it.

    Missed this one - do you happen to know what he signed for?

    Saw where Boras said it seemed likely the FA's would be signing much quicker this year - will see if that pans out.

    Gerardo Parra will be taking Baby Shark over to Japan and playing for the Yoriumi Giants. Hope the folks over there can rock Baby Shark like the folks in DC!
