FA Coming......What to do?

SDS

I'm 2 seasons out from my FA. Currently trapped in AZ with one of the worst lineups in the league. But thanks to this pandemic I'm flying through seasons at a rate of 4 days per season.

So what to do when FA comes? Pick the best team, most money, or short porch stadium (Yankees?)? I've seen a few teams with 4-5 guys in their lineups with over 90 ratings. Just imagining where I would fit in that lineup. I'm rated 99.

SDS

I'm looking at the Hou lineup:

3B Gustafson - 73
CF Tucker - 94
LF Alvarez - 97
RF Yelich - 96
2B Torres - 99
SS Baez - 99
DH Conforto - 90
1B Olson - 86
C Lee - 95

I'm thinking I should switch positions to a 3B.

SDS

If you can pull off a switch to 3B, that would be great. After toiling away for a bad team, it's always nice to join a winner.

SDS

Can you ask your agent for a change in position? or edit your player?

SDS

I believe so yes, i think you jist have to say your unhappy and tell him you would like a change of positions. No guarnties it works though.

SDS

Guess I'll find out near the all-star week. Though I like being a 2B. I had a horrible season (my standards) last year and still won a silver slugger. Weak position.

SDS

Update - So I could change my position but only to SS. So I edited my player to have 3B and SS. I'll have to see what my Agent says.

SDS

Another thing: I hit free agency recently and got no offers from the teams that I wanted to play. If you reach Spring Training without a team, you can choose where you want to play and after ST ends they will offer you a contract. Just FYI in case the team you want to play doesn't offer you a contract.

I have to ask did you get one of the bats for reaching a rating of 99?

As far as free agency goes money doesn't mean much so go for the best team or a team you would want to play on in my opinion. Skipping until trying out for a team at spring training is a option. You could even spend 1 season on a team and then go elsewhere if you wanted to.

I got a Cookies and Cream Diamond Bat. Not sure my I got it. I thought it was because I hit a GS during a Boss Challenge when I selected homer for a prize and power boost.

SDS

I got one more season with Angel's it's me Mike trout kris Bryant Paul de Jong on batters side pitching we loaded with aces like aaron NOLA pitcher from Yankees last name start with S white Sox pitcher reynaldo sean newcomb(he alright on some games) should I stay or go we won four world series back to back to back & back my overall is a 96

SDS

Hell I would stay in that lineup. I'm on the Diamondbacks. Can't wait to leave.

SDS

FA is here!!!! Man not looking good. First two weeks I've only gotten offers from teams with losing records. All small market teams as well. Ugh.

SDS

Well that didn't go as expected. Pretty lame only 3 teams can compete for your services at a time. I signed with Col after spending 6 years with AZ. I did a 4 year deal due to other teammates contracts and age. Don't want to be somewhere that's going to be rebuilding after a 3-4 year window. Ranked 2nd overall.

Does playing in Coors affect your offensive stats?

I LOVED playing in Coors. One of my players was drafted by the Rockies. I was a "Small Ball" player and managed to hit 35 HRs in my rookie year.

SDS

I'm starting to think Col was a bad idea. The bullpen blows ever lead over and over and over. 3rd best team in the league allegedly.
