The free agent market, by all accounts, is going to be a bloodbath this offseason. We’ve given the opinion here often so far that while some of the guys at the top end of the market are going to get theirs, the middle-to-lower part of the group is going to struggle to get what they want. Blame it on the pandemic, blame it on the recent trend of relying on minor league depth, but there isn’t really hard to see that your Jake Arrietas are going to struggle to get more than a one year deal. So when you see guys like Robbie Ray jumping at the first offer they get, it shouldn’t surprise you. Waiting to see what the market gives you could be a mistake for some guys since teams may just move on to something else a little quicker than in the past.

On to the links.
