The Hot Stove League is Starting Up

For my readers who are not baseball fans, The Hot Stove League is speculation and rumors about free-agent signings and trades made during the off-season.  All teams are trying to improve themselves to be in contention for the 2021 season.  All teams also have budgetary constraints especially since they did not get revenue from ticket sales in 2020.

The Mets should have a new owner very soon who is a multi-billionaire.  He has to be careful not to spend big bucks on mediocre players.  The Mets' biggest need is a catcher, but what will the price by for J.T. Realmuto?  They also need to need to improve their starting pitching.

The Yankees will be under pressure to make some moves since they have not won a World Series since 2009.  How much will D.J. LaMahiew command on the open market?

Let's also hope the 2021 season will be "normal" with full stadiums on opening day.
