I am sure this is an example of setting myself up for regret (especially with Kris Bryant trade rumors swirling) but friends, let me tell you, this offseason is feeling pretty slow.

As with some previous postseasons (2018 comes to mind as feeling especially molasses-like), it’s simply a matter of waiting for the big move that will set the other dominos into motion. Will it be the Trevor Bauer signing? Perhaps DJ LeMahieu? Perhaps a blockbuster trade that no one saw coming, rather than a free agent signing.

Whatever the move that starts the ball rolling, I can’t wait for it to happen, because this stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas could use a little action.

That said, our digital wordsmiths have been busy since Monday, so enjoy the vast array of links offerings to hold us over until someone gets signed.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
