Matheny seems to be a good bet for KC based on early reporting. 

Joe Maddon to Angels, of course.

Mark DeRosa thinks Mark Kotsay to SF.

I think Girardi gets Phillies or Mets.

Showalter supposedly in consideration for Philly, Kapler to SFG?

Weird, since Zaidi and Kapler are pretty much on opposing sides in the analytics department.

Zaidi and Kapler worked together pretty closely with the Dodgers.

Maddon to the Angels official. 

 

I hear the Angels plan to "spend big" to fix their problems.  Well, the Angels spent a gargantuan amount of money on an aging Albert Pujols, and they broke the bank for Mike Trout... how much "bigger" do they expect to spend?  

Putting all your eggs in one basket and signing one big name free agent is dumb... you don't win by doing that.  In baseball, one player isn't going to change your fortunes.

The Twins did it right.  Once  that Mauer contract came off the books, they took that money and brought in several players who turned them into a playoff team.  The Nationals said goodbye to Bryce Harper and hello to the World Series.  Coincidence?  Maybe yes, maybe no.

Sure, which requires being able to target successfully Tier B/C players to supplement a young core.

Whether Cron or Odorrizi (they were one year early on Lynn, but had right assessment...the late start killed him in 2018), Cruz or Schoop, Pineda (before PED's), Martin Perez or Marwin Gonzalez, they ended up with one solid contributor after another.

We've gotten ONE over the last 3 cycles, McCann.
