    Yes, really. They’re going to sign a stop gap SS like Simmons, possibly trade for Olson (which would be the highlight of the offseason) and maybe add a lottery ticket starting pitcher. Otherwise it will be the same team they rolled out there last year, including Gardner. Why should we expect anything different? Start bracing yourself for “getting a healthy Hicks and Severino back will be just like a free agent signing.”

      To be fair the off-season ends in about 2 days. After that, it is straight to spring training.

        I think we will see a flurry of moves by next wednesday cause that lockout is coming.

          You don’t get value without giving value. Why would Cashman even go after an A liner for centerfield? He has Gardner on a year by year.

            Don't worry. Your spirits will go up once Gardy is signed for another season.

              Sure. With the other teams. Just not with our team.

                Well that’s a given. I mean, who else would play CF when Hicks gets injured in May?

                  Well, yeah. YES is already preparing for us for the inevitable. They wouldn't do this unless they knew he's coming back:

                    :lol: Of course. I would be genuinely more surprised if they didn’t bring him back.

                      Brett Gardner: to hell with upside, let's embrace mediocrity.

                          Lol, they have two players that can play CF on the ML roster (Judge, Gallo), a few in AAA, a dozen other needs, and they tease fans with Gardner returning?
                          Q: Who’s the guy on your roster that would have been overlooked if not for analytics? Cashman: Ronald Torreyes. He’s an analytical darling.

                            Right. He was their best player and Marlins (couldn't) didn't sign him. He had a great year. Sandy (Cohen) wanted 3 years but he needed Marte to score runs. What I like is 17%K. I will be comps with Hicks/Gardy (do you want to bet?). What I like about his post was Hicks and we have 4 more years....

                              I don’t think there’s much if any intradivision premium demand when you’re in the position the Orioles are. There’s no reason for them not to take the best offer and arguably it’s more beneficial to move him in division because they take future assets away to flip the script long term. That said this will be an expensive trade to make regardless because Mullins was one of the top players in baseball last year and he’s controlled long term. One of the few guys that might be available that I’d have no qualms moving Volpe for.

                                Padres shopping Hosmer, desperate to unload him.

                                It’s going to be hilarious if Cashman jumps all over him because of his $13 million annual salary between 2023-25, freeing up the Padres to trade for Olson. The fact that Hosmer sucks won’t even matter.
