Congrats to the Gnats.

Damn that autocorrect!

Anywho, what about 2020? Hot Stove League starts, well, managers have shifted around already.

You forgot to include the way-too-early Power Rankings from ESPN.

Thank you! Always important info there that assumes no changes will be made between now and April. Nothing ever changes in the off-season anyway. Why bother even having it? Let's start with up with 2020 now! Woooooo!

It is what it is - "Way Too Early." Nothing wrong with 2020 vision

Will be a very interesting offseason for quite a few big market teams

Cubs
Dodgers
Yankees
Red Sox

all have to make some big moves this winter to get where they want to be next year

Hot stove heating up
Moustakas 4/$64M to Red
Wheeler ~5/$120M to Phillies
Hamels 1/$18M to Braves

I’m liking the Braves deal for Hamels. He’s not a top of the rotation guy anymore, but a solid starter that can help provide leadership for the Braves young arms. At his age he could rapidly decline next season, but that’s not any lasting damage given a 1 year deal.

Braves should check him out for a half-year, trade (if not worth it) or sign another one-year deal (if worth it) in July.
Repeat as necessary.

That's pretty much my thoughts on the deal.
