2020 off-season thread 

Post#1 » by hermes » Sun Nov 1, 2020 1:55 pm

apparently there are rumors that epstein might be moving on? that would be interesting and might mean the end of the core (that only seemed to coalesce into its potential for like 2 years)

declined lester's option but picked up rizzo's (which i'm happy about, he's one of my favorite players on the team)

Theo officially resigned and replaced by Hoyer. Guess I'm not totally surprised.

Glad Rizzo was picked up. Will miss Lester as really enjoyed all he did for the team.

Going to be a maddening offseason, IMO.

on to a new era i suppose, or a transition period perhaps depending on how much of the core is retained

Schwarber non tendered. Kind of puzzling after years of not moving him for pitching help as clear that ( no matter how much I love him) he was not an everyday player.

the other big names were tendered (bryant, baez, contreas). always felt like they could never find a spot for schwarber, would have been nice to try and get something for him a few years ago but oh well
