    The Official 2019 MLB Thread

    With pitchers and catchers due to start reporting in a little over a month, probably time to move on from the 2018 thread.

    Pardon me while I reminisce on 2018 for a moment....




    A lot of unsigned talent is still out there in the free agent pool so it will be interesting to see what unfolds with that prior to the beginning of Spring Training.

    The Red Sox are currently the odds-on favorite to win the 2019 World Series followed closely by the Astros, Dodgers and Yankees.

    Sox and Betts avoid arbitration and agree to a $20M contract, basically doubling his 2018 contract. No end in sight if he keeps playing the way he has since entering the league.

    His contract will be insane.

    No doubt. I wish they would just go ahead and bite the bullet and lock him up long-term. The longer it goes, the bigger the $$$ is going to be.

    I hope Kansas City stays in double digits for losses. They are at least a few years from resembling 2014 and 2015.

    Hearing trade rumors that the Indians are looking to get rid of Kluber. I surely hope we do not, some of the earlier trades were questionable but I could see the reasoning behind them as they freed up salary cap space. I feel getting rid of Kluber would be a huge loss for us and really be the point where the majority of fans begin questioing the front office.

    Yeah its been the rumor for the last few months, but nothing has come from it. Evidently SD wants him to then flip to the Reds but it doesnt sound like its happening.

    I think since they moved Alonso and then Encarnacion their payroll reduction plan should be ok

    I just hope we (Redsox) have a good year. We always have a down year or two after winning it all. My hope is we can string consecutive years together and be good. Fingers crossed.
