MLB Off Season 2018 - 2019

What or who is on your club's wish list here in the off season?

Geography has me following the O's who are taking the "burn it all down" approach that has become so popular (With the exception of continuing to take it in the shorts with Chris Davis' contract).

Coming off the historical season they started right in dumping everything that wasn't young and cheap (*Exception - Chris Davis) and acknowledge the coming rebuild. GM and Manager gone as well.

Ownership reigns were handed over to the sons so there appears to be some acceptance of the more modern process, analytics and international signing possibility. They've got a young GM in Mike Elias who is saying the right things and appears to have the right background to manage the rebuild. At least a couple more 100 loss seasons are completely reasonable but the fan base is seeing some changes. Selection of a new manager is next on the agenda along with building up the scouting department to get good from Summer League on up the chain.

Boston on the other hand appears to be holding what they have and most likely focusing on strengthening their roster. Cora has extended through 2021 so we will see if lightening in a bottle can happen again. League MVP and WS MVP are back in Betts and Pearce. The question as always in the AL East is who has the deepest pockets between the Yanks and Sox.

Winter meetings are coming soon. Hopefully they don't mess around too much with the game.
