As noted in the comments, the Rule 5 draft came and went without a single player coming to or going from the Nationals organization. No married or divorced players, either.
I’d been waiting to finalize the 2021 Watchlist until this, so that’ll probably be my next post. But after that? Yikes.
Perhaps we’ll still be talking about the aftershocks of the MLB takeover. Field of Schemes notes that the 18 SOL teams were recipients of $249MM in public funding. As previously noted, there may be cause for lawsuits, but will there be the stomach to pursue them in the current climate?
Otherwise, I think we’re looking at another long, cold, slow winter.
