Chasing The Storm 2039-8 Offseason Plans

Post by njherdfan » Sat Sep 07, 2019 10:19 am

Now that Seattle's disappointing 2039 season is in the rearview mirror, it's time for GM Nathan Eagan and his team to figure out what comes next for the Storm, and what the team will look like next season.

Seattle's biggest path to improvement, of course, is simply hoping that Ken Walter returns to good health and can pitch as well as he has in the past. If that happens, Walter will likely be better than any free agent signing that Seattle could hope to pull off. If Walter can return, a rotation of Walter, Hector Marquez, Luther Summers, Gordon Graves and really anyone else should be more than enough to compete with just about anyone.

On offense, everyone from the 2039 lineup is poised to return. Of course, it's fair to ask if that's entirely a good thing, based on some of the disappointing performances from some Storm hitters (looking at you Jose Cortes). With that in mind, it will be interesting to see if Seattle's top offensive prospect in AAA, Aires Penharanda, will begin knocking on the door to the major league team next season. By all accounts, he's pretty close to being ready for the major leagues.

Seattle's biggest offseason decision will come in the form of closer Jose Souza. More specifically, Souza will be a free agent and he's coming off of a very successful 2039 season. Seattle will be coming close to the salary cap next season, and it's not clear if they will be able to retain Souza, and there isn't a clear alternative closer waiting in the wings. There are rumors of potentially converting a starter to the bullpen, but it's not clear who that might be. Ultimately, that will be the biggest issue facing Seattle this offseason, and it could play a key role in determining the Storm's success next season.

I'm going to have to strike up an I-5 Rivalry with Seattle next season as well.

After years of focusing mainly on YS, TC, Des Moines, and Omaha, it's going to be fun and interesting to see what these other teams have. I truly haven't looked hard at the teams in the other divisions hardly ever.
