The long offseason is upon us, so it's time start to thinking about possible offseason signings/trades/moves which hopefully will lead to our 2020 vision of our 12th World Series Championship

What would you like to see happen? What would you want our lineup/starting rotation/bullpen to look like?

This thread will be dedicated to that discussion, and stickied/sorted by new. Any new self posts submitted on the front page about possible moves including roster construction will be removed and redirected to this thread.

I can’t wait to see the greatest team in Baseball play their biggest rivals in London. I’m so fucking excited. Only other MLB game I’ve been to is Astros vs Brave at Minute Maid Park whilst on vacation in Houston, so seeing my favourite team in London is gonna be amazing

So my sister lives just outside London. Her fiance contacted me today. Through his work he has access to company tickets to the Cards-Cubs there in June. I just need to pay for the plane tickets. I'm psyched!

Usually I ignore ESPN, but I found this question kind of intriguing. Thoughts?

The Cardinals fan's dilemma: An all-time great manager but being stuck with Albert Pujols

After considerable review of the past 20 years, the Cardinals fan said, "You know, actually, I think I'm good with it all."

But the genie persisted, and rather than hurt the genie's feelings the Cardinals fan allowed that she wishes, back in 2012, when the Cardinals were interviewing Terry Francona and Mike Matheny for the open managing job, they had just picked Francona. Matheny's seven-year run wasn't disastrous, but by Cardinals standards it wasn't successful -- no titles, concluding with the Cards missing three consecutive postseasons for the only time this century -- and the whole time his managing felt heavy, inert.

The genie said fine, but in exchange Albert Pujols would accept the Cardinals' contract offer back in the winter of 2011. This seems like way too much for a simple managerial shift -- Pujols' eight years as an Angel have been below average, and costly in multiple ways, and in Cardinals-land his departure has always seemed like a huge bullet dodged. But (A) the deal would have been for less than the Angels are paying him, (B) Pujols might have aged a little better with continuity, (C) Cardinals fans would have felt none of the bad feelings they felt toward a franchise icon that year and in the years to come, and (D) Pujols would retire a Cardinal, a truly historic franchise icon nearly on a level with Stan Musial, with the whole body of his work doing most of the legacy-lifting. Old Al Pujols would still be hanging around the Cardinals, today and for two more years, but maybe that'd be OK, right?
