The baseball offseason is always a time when there’s little else to pay attention to aside from the wheeling, dealing, and trading that goes on with teams. You can usually get a pretty good idea of whether a team hopes to contend, or will be satisfied with a “rebuild” based on who they are willing to part with, and who they are willing to pay for.

So for fans and writers alike, we tend to stay pretty attuned to what’s going on with the trade and free agent markets, but often—especially with free agents—we need to wait until the few weeks before spring training to see many moves. Well, teams certainly aren’t wasting much time this offseason making trades and making changes, so let’s dive into the links and see what’s going on.
