With the federal holidays falling on a Wednesday in 2019-20, it feels like everyone has taken last week and this week off. I went back to work yesterday, but judging by the roads and the office, most people have not.
It’s been forever since Baseball America or MiLB has let us know about free-agent signings; we’ve only heard about them on the Twitters or in the comments. BA informs us this because they’ve been too busy with the handbook and the magazine. MiLB, I presume, is waiting for the interns to come back.
As the headline says, I’ve begun writing the player reports for the 2020 Watchlist and have finished a few pages. It’s usually pretty easy until I get the outfielders and/or the right-handed pitchers; then it’s a slough.
The purpose of this post, like many in the months of January and February, is to let you know we haven’t gone dark. It’s just really slow.
Until next time…
