Free Agent/Trade Predictions

SDS

It’s going to be a slower hot stove this off-season. The economic state of the 2020 season will definitely impact the free agent and trade markets, as will the uncertainty regarding the universal DH and expanded playoffs.

With that said, let’s hear some predictions on what uniforms the high profile free agents and trade candidates will be wearing come the start of the 2021 season.

Free Agents:

Trevor Bauer
JT Realmuto
George Springer
Marcell Ozuna
DJ LeMahieu
Marcus Stroman
Didi Gregorius
Masahiro Tanaka
Liam Hendriks
Michael Brantley
Justin Turner
Marcus Semien
James McCann
Andrelton Simmons
Joc Pederson
Jose Quintana
Nelson Cruz
Jackie Bradley Jr.
James Paxton
Taijuan Walker
Kolten Wong
Brad Hand
Corey Kluber
Yadier Molina
Charlie Morton

Trade Candidates:

Kris Bryant
Francisco Lindor
Nolan Arenado
Trevor Story
Lance Lynn
Josh Hader

Who do you see moving where? Which team makes a move to take that next step? Who is left on the outside looking in like Puig last off season? What are your thoughts?

Honestly, I have no idea. 🙂
I am sure that I am just tired, so my brain isn't working correctly. I might have some predictions for these tomorrow. 🙂

Mets Wish list:
Re-sign Stroman
Sign SP depth like Tanaka
Sign George Springer
Sign JT Realmuto
Trade for Arenado

Obviously that isn't all going to happen.
The most realistic of those would be to resign Stroman and hopefully sign one of Springer or Realmuto

One of Bauer/Springer in a Jays uniform. Book it

You'd have to think the Tigers are the favorite to land Springer with the AJ Hinch hire. Hinch just seems to know how to get his guys to hit better.
