    - I provided 14 moves that were either trades of established full-time MLB players, or free agent signings for guaranteed MLB deals (and two more on the 23rd). There has, I believe, been one such transaction this offseason.
    - You refuse to concede that this year has, in fact, been significantly slower than last year to this point, despite the fact that it has quite clearly been slower than last year (and 2015, and probably 2014 etc...).
    I thought my Grant troll was an obvious giveaway. I agree nothing major has happened up to this moment, and certainly more moves had been made at this stage a year ago, but my point is that the offseason is still very young so there's not much to get anxious about. Having been confirmed that Ohtani will be posted, along with the Braves/Coppolella scandal seem like pretty significant events even if they aren't a team acquiring someone, neither of those are things that happen every year.

    Ohtani and Stanton are holding everything up. Might have to wait a few weeks before anything major happens. The free agent market being absolute dog shit is likely a factor as well.

    You're probably right. He really is the perfect fit though. Switch hitter, lead-off, can play infield + outfield.

    We're probably not gonna get one of these utility types that are already established since they're so hard to come by. Gonna have to take a gamble and trade for someone unproven like the Dodgers did with Chris Taylor.

    So, has anyone noticed that the offseason is off to a slow start this year? I think Stanton and Ohtani might be holding things up.

    That would be the smart route. There are two players I always bring up that I won’t mention by name to avoid Brownie being triggered, but those two plus others who are blocked on other teams or coming off down seasons should be explored. There has to be a middle ground between overpaying for Nunez and counting on Ryan Goins again.

    Most boring offseason in recent memory. Looks like we have another 30 days of this shit to look forward to!

    MLB should have new rules forcing teams to trade/Sign players every week!! This is just too quiet, not to say a dead offseason.
