So what’s next?
Las Vegas! Site of the 2018 Winter Meetings. Home of Kris Bryant and some other guy named Bryce Harper, the kid who was on the cover of Sports Illustrated at the ripe old age of 16.
Think he’ll be hanging around the Mandalay Bay, home of the Meetings, that week?
But we digress. Here are a few of the biggest names that will be available next winter, barring an unforeseen trade-and-sign-an-extension deal between now and then: Charlie Blackmon, Josh Donaldson, Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Clayton Kershaw (if he exercises his opt-out next winter), Dallas Keuchel, Craig Kimbrel, Andrew Miller and David Price (he has an opt-out as well).
As any Dodger fan would attest, there isn’t a name in that group that wouldn’t look good in Dodger blue come Opening Day 2019.
Granted, some of them might not fit well, position-wise, on the 2019 Dodgers roster, but I’m sure Dave Roberts and his staff could find a way to fit in a Bryce Harper or Manny Machado.
