MLB free agency officially got underway this week and by all accounts the stove will be hot!
With free agency kicking into gear tomorrow, sources around the game believe the market is going to be robust early. A number of free agents could sign early. And after the GM meetings this week, the sense of the trade market will be far clearer. Gonna be an awfully busy winter.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 3, 2018
What’s more, Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich has dropped hints that the Rockies will be involved in a substantial way this year:
Over the next several weeks we’re going to be offering some free agent profiles (like this one on Patrick Corbin) as well as profiles on potential trade targets for the Rockies. But what I want to know (inspired by Max Rieper at Royals Review):
Which free agent(s) should the Rockies target and what kind of contract would you give him?
In case you need help, Grant Brisbee profiled the top 50 free agents and Jon Heyman found an “expert” to offer predictions for the top 131 free agents. Pick a name (or series of names, if you’re ambitious) and make the case why he would be a valuable addition to the 2019 Colorado Rockies. Points for coherence, plausibility, and creativity (but the rules are made up and the points don’t matter so do what you will).
Write up a FanPost (if you’ve never done one here are a couple handy guides for you) and tell us all about it. Make sure to include “FPF” in the title and we will post some of our favorites on the front page next week.
