With the World Series officially over, all eyes will turn to the off-season and the pending MLB free agency period.

With the World Series over and the Washington Nationals crowned the 2019 Champions, it is time to descend upon one of the baseball writer’s favorite time of the year: MLB free agency.

The off-season is a magical place where trades, free-agent signings, and free agency rumors dominate baseball’s headlines. A time when front office staff and management personnel across the league are doing everything within their power to improve their respective ball clubs.

Some teams are looking for that one player who could be the next piece of a World Series team, someone who could fill the last hole on a squad destined and ready for October baseball.

Other teams are looking for a fresh start, trading veteran fan-favorite players away in order to make the club younger, building the team from the ground up in hopes of creating a dynamic core that baseball historians will talk about for ages.

MLB free agency and the off-season can be a dramatic time for both the organizations and the players, as many players are vying for roster spots in which only 26 people can take part of. Whether you have athletes looking to cash in on mega contracts or veteran players looking to get back into the game, free agency can be both a friend and a foe of any player.

Just ask Dallas Keuchel, who had to wait until 1/3 of the season was over and the June Amateur Draft had passed, a victim of the qualifying offer and poor advice from his agent Scott Boras.

Regardless of what happens during the off-season, there is always plenty of drama and tribulations, underdogs making big splashes and blind trades which have fans either cheering in jubilation or crying for managements head on a stake.

Now that the World Series is over the fun begins.
