The top offseason priority for all 30 MLB teams

Your favorite team probably isn't going to get Bryce Harper or Manny Machado. But another move -- maybe for a top pitcher -- could make all the difference this winter.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The next stop for Adrian Beltre: Cooperstown. The Rangers third baseman announced his retirement after 21 seasons and with 3,166 hits, 477 home runs, 1,707 RBIs and five Gold Gloves, he's an easy first-ballot Hall of Famer. Beltre was a true two-way force, one of the best defensive third basemen ever who finished in the top-10 of the MVP voting six times. He's in the argument as one of the top five third basemen of all time -- his 95.7 WAR trails only Mike Schmidt and Eddie Mathews and ranks ahead of Wade Boggs, George Brett and Chipper Jones -- and he'll be remembered for his joy for playing the game ... and not wanting anybody to touch his head.

WS loss gives Rangers manager bond with fans

New Texas manager Chris Woodward, former Dodgers third base coach, said the sting of losing a second World Series helps him understand the disappointment Rangers fans feel. The Rangers were the last team to lose the World Series in back-to-back years.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

A source tells me Joe Espada, who was one of the finalists, is out of the running for the Rangers' managerial opening. Supports reports that Chris Woodward is the frontrunner for the job.

Suit: Braves should've acted before '15 fan death

A lawsuit filed by the family of Gregory Murrey, who died in 2015 after falling from the upper deck at a Braves game, contends fan deaths at other parks, including the Rangers', should have led MLB to demand all teams have higher guardrails.
