Major League Baseball’s annual offseason is a test of patience for fans, of smarts in general managers, and of determination in players. Generally speaking, if you work hard on your flaws in the offseason, when nobody is watching, it pays off when 50,000 fans pack into a ballpark to see your team play in October.
This goes for players who, from the early parts of November until spring training, condition themselves for the long haul of the summer months. It goes for GMs, who are tasked with constructing a team to contend with anyone else’s club, be it through savvy free agent signings or trades that send shock waves through the sport.
And for us fans, it’s no different. It’s a test of discipline for us; we can’t make the season come any faster, all we can do is find entertainment in the offseason moves by MLB’s 30 teams. If you’re a hardcore baseball fan, it’s likely that you pay full attention to the offseason, even though it can be boring, uneventful, and anticlimactic.How well do you remember the 2018-19 @MLB offseason.
