Once the World Series is over, it'll be time for teams to make some adjustments and moves to either make a run for next year's World Series or build for the future. Obviously, that should go without saying. Anyways, these following teams should make specific adjustments to ensure a brighter future.
New York Yankees: Hire A Manager That Will Work Well With The Young Players: With the Yankees unceremoniously letting Joe Girardi go from his managerial position last week, the Yankees are now in pursuit of a new leader. The new manager must be able to build the younger Yankees on the team and help Aaron Judge with his strikeout woes. Other players like Gary Sanchez and the upcoming call-ups will want a manager who will help enhance their game. Dusty Baker has been linked to the Yankees job. Even though that sounds nice, Dusty's postseason resume is uninspiring. Maybe hire John Farrell to the helm?
Detroit Tigers: Make One More Move Just To Be Sure: It's become apparent the Tigers are in a rebuilding mode after a disastrous season this year. In turn, they've traded away pieces like Justin Verlander, Justin Wilson, and J.D. Martinez to build for the future. Detroit already has the #1 pick in next year's draft. But the Tigers should try for one more move, shopping either Nick Castellanos or Michael Fulmer around in order to get a top prospect or two.
Miami Marlins: Get Everybody On Board For The Future: New CEO Derek Jeter has expressed interest in wanting to try for a rebuild in Miami. Although superstar Giancarlo Stanton has expressed his discontent with the rebuild, Jeter should talk with everyone from the front office to the player personnel and get on the same page regarding the future of the Marlins. Will they contend next year? Will they blow it up the way the previous owner Jeffrey Loria loved to do when things quickly turned south?
Chicago Cubs: Revamp The Rotation: Theo Epstein and crew will have some turnover in the rotation come the offseason. John Lackey will likely retire and Jake Arrieta will become a free agent. This will be the time to go after some pitching, maybe by acquiring the likes of Yu Darvish and/or Shohei Otani. The Cubs should also look to getting players like Anthony Rizzo back on track.
Minnesota Twins: Look For A Steal In The Market: Like the Cubs, Minnesota is in need of some rotation help. Unlike the Cubs, the Twins don't spend a lot of money just to lure free agents to the Twin Cities. The Twins have a promising young lineup with players like Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton, but will need to look for a low price veteran or two on the free agent market to get the Twins back to the playoffs.
Atlanta Braves: Take The Next Step: Teams like the Houston Astros and the Chicago Cubs have tried the tanking process and have had great success, getting their squads to the World Series later on. Atlanta appears to be the next team that has tried the process to take that next step after a 72-90 season. What the Braves should do is to go after one or two big-name free agents. Should the Braves go after Arrieta? Should they re-unite with Justin Upton should Upton opt out? Should they try for J.D. Martinez? Anyways, Atlanta needs a big move or two to take that next step.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
