It's that time again, where the losers of the season come in and talk about how "next year" is their year.

is it in poor taste to post in the offseason thread if your team is in the playoffs

Anyone have suggestions on signing an entire rotation and bullpen in the offseason?

I think we can use a power hitting outfielder.

Cash said he isn't looking for outfield help. He's going to let Judge/Hicks/Austin battle it out for RF.

Bye Dave Stewart. I'm sad that our teams didn't do any significant business!

#Braves will interview Bud Black, Ron Washington, possibly 2-3 others. Already interviewed Brian Snitker and in-house Eddie Perez, Terry Pendleton, Bo Porter

#Braves no longer looking for a starting 3B, after Adonis Garcia improvement during season

#Braves have starting pitching as top priority, at least 2 and possibly 3 added, Coppy said. Still looking for catcher to pair with Flowers

Off-season time! Ms have had best attendance for the last 15 years, never late.

I really don't want us to get any free agents, just gotta make clever trades and I'll hope they don't do something like trade for a fuck boy like Steve clevenger or trade away Kyle Lewis.

It's actually really appalling that TLR destroyed that team and fired the buddies he hired to cover for him after the fact.

Chip Hale did a pretty decent job with the roster he was given.

I don't get that one. They improved vastly last year at hitting. Can't you attribute a lot of that to Bonds?

I wonder if Barry Bonds is legit - maybe he could teach Sanchez/Bird/Austin/Judge/Frazier a thing or two (or hook them up with some "gummies").

Yankees gotta eat some of McCann's deal to move him; same with Ellsbury if possible. Gardner should be easier to move.

I'd love it if they could re-acquire Chapman, and get a starter or two. After that...whatever. Let the chips fall where they may. We're coming for MLB in 2019 anyway.

Hope they bring him back, our 1B situation is a mess, and with the vote still out on Vogelbach I'd still want him around next year. They should be able to bring him back, unless he wants to go back to Japan and get paid there.

Vogelbach looked raw when he was playing last month.

Not terrible, just unrefined. He could stand to lose 20lb too.

Also, anyone else not watch postseason stuff if your team is out or am I just strange like that?

Yeah, I'm not counting Vogelbach out, just that I'm not sure I want to roll into next season with him as our only first baseman. DHL bats the opposite of him, has a great glove for a big guy, and would be great to keep.

The Angels will never let go of Trout, as Frozen has said. But I believe it's because he is such a generational talent that trading for one current stud of a player, or one prospect simply isn't getting enough on return for him.

There was an article posted in the main thread a little while ago about a possible trade of the Rome Braves to the Angels for Trout. That's about the only thing that could even come close to being a good trade for Trout if you are the Angels or any other team.

Think they're talking about Scioscia. In which case he ain't going anywhere. If you as a manager can get a GM fired, you won't be going anywhere.

I believe Atlanta could make a compelling offer for Trout. But if he's on the market, I'm positive another team like the Dodgers or Red Sox could beat them. Actually, probably just those teams. Maybe the Twins if you really like Buxton and they're also willing to give up Sano plus others.
