This seems to set up that only about 7 teams intend to compete next year with all the rest in reset or rebuild mode.
Good news is that the Yankees will probably only s...

This is more a wish list, but will show how the Twins can proceed if they decide to spend the money.

Mauer Retires

Ryu or Evoldi 4/60 - 70
Herrera - 3/42
One or two more RP types mid range 2/15 each

Oderizzi traded probably would have to absorb part of contra...
