free agent OBP machine Carlos Santana. They could move Edwin Encarnacion to first base and use guys such as Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis at DH, or maybe use the small amount of money they have to spend on a second-tier free-agent first baseman like Mitch Moreland, Danny Valencia or Adam Lind.
They also can hope for a bounce-back season from Kipnis and improved production from Bradley Zimmer Authentic Rickey Jackson Jersey in his second season. Here's a primary reason the Indians can win 100 games again: The AL Central will be terrible. FanGraphs currently projects the White Sox, Royals and Tigers among the seven worst teams in baseball. Their pitching staffs ranks 30th (White Sox), 27th (Royals) and 26th (Tigers) in projected WAR. The Twins' pitching staff isn't much better.
The Indians finished third in the AL in runs and that can happen again with the all the bad pitching the Indians will face. (Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor are pretty good as well.) Los Angeles Dodgers (Projected record: 93-69)
The Dodgers have a few more obvious concerns than the Astros and Indians, in part because they had more http://www.texansfootballsprostore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_WILL_FULLER_JERSEY.html surprise contributors -- particularly Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor -- which is why their projected win total at the moment is a little lower. On the other hand, FanGraphs also projects Bellinger and Taylor to be worth just 4.7 WAR after they combined for 9.0 in 2017. I'll take the 9.0 again over the 4.7.
The Dodgers also have http://www.bengalsofficialonlinestore.com/Nick_Vigil_Jersey a couple of youngsters who could make an impact in pitcher Walker Buehler and outfielder Alex Verdugo, although the roster is so deep that neither is guaranteed a starting position and both could open in Triple-A. Re-signing Brandon Morrow -- or another setup guy -- will be necessary.
Other than Yu Darvish and Morrow, however, all the key guys from 2017 are under contract -- and they get out from some big contracts including Carl Crawford ($21.8 million in 2017), Andre Ethier ($17.5 million) and Alex Guerrero ($7.5 million), Eric Staal Womens Jersey which means they might have an estimated $40 million or so in payroll flexibility.
Yes, the Dodgers have talked about lowering the payroll, http://www.authentichoustonastros.com/Jose-Cruz-Jr-Jersey and with Buehler and Verdugo, they have the ability to add two more low-cost rookies to the roster, but come on: They finished one game short of glory.
They're going to make a big addition in the offseason. Maybe it's Giancarlo Stanton -- although Andrew Friedman sounds as if he's reluctant to bring on that contract. Maybe it's Shohei Ohtani.
Maybe it's Eric Hosmer, with Bellinger moved to the outfield and Joc Pederson traded for some pitching depth. Or maybe it's a combination like Ohtani and Hosmer. No matter, you know the Dodgers aren't going to sit back and rest after 104 wins and a seven-game World Series defeat without doing something big. So, the powerhouses should be powerful once again. Now let's see how the rest of the league reacts this offseason.
A few years ago, the Hall of Fame Jimmie Foxx Youth jersey altered its voting rules, reducing the number of years that a player could be eligible for election by the Baseball Writers Association from 15 to 10 years. At the time, that change was a mortal blow to the chances of Mark McGwire ever being elected into the Hall, because he had already burned through most of his 10 years of eligibility, and now, Clemens and Bonds each have only five more years to be considered.
At the same time that rule was rewritten, the Hall turned aside a request from the writers to consider increasing its ballot beyond the 10-player limit, because of how the list of candidates was stacking up like cars at a Womens Steve Largent Jersey cash-only toll both. Players like McGwire, Bonds, Clemens, Mike Piazza, Sammy Sosa and others were lingering on the ballot year to year, and for a lot of writers -- in some years, more than 50 percent -- that meant there were far more worthy candidates than the 10-player limit.
