The BBWAA awards finalists were announced yesterday afternoon.
Ruben Amaro Jr. is a candidate for the Angels General Manager position. Giancarlo Stanton wisely opts in to the remaining seven years of his contract with the Yankees. A couple more NPB pitchers could be posted this off season. The most prominent name is Tomoyuki Sugano. To the surprise of no one, the winter meetings will be held virtually this year. The Cardinals and three other clubs are in touch with Yadier Molina. The identity of the other three clubs is not known but this article includes the Angels among it speculations. News flash! Rob Manfred has a terrible idea for how he wants to change baseball. Here is a list of the top free agents at every position. Jon Lester apparently bought thousands of beers for Chicago fans. Blake Parker was outrighted by the Phillies for the second off season in a row.

Virtual winter meetings. Reagins could’ve made those on time…..probably.
His internet crashed. Stupid ATT.
The fact that a person with Ruben Amaro’s track record, is even supposedly being considered for the GM spot, is depressing as a mofo.
Serious, Wasn’t he known as Ruin Tomorrow Jr.?
edit: I see RF already mentioned that.

By the FSM’s Noodly Appendage! NO NO NO to Ruin Tomorrow Jr.
Part of me feels like Manager of the Year should be voted on after the playoffs.
Incongruously, the White Sox congratulated Rick Renteria on being nominated as Manager of the Year shortly after they fired him.
….and Tony LaRussa was seen babbling incoherently like Lloyd Bridges in “Hot Shots”
