Vote: Offseason priorities for all 30 teams

MLB

With free agency kicking off the MLB offseason, we're asking you to weigh in on the top priorities for all 30 teams. Here's a team-by-team rundown ... 

AL East

 Baltimore Orioles: A last-place finish and the worst starter's ERA in baseball mean the O's have a lot of work to do. Vote: Offseason priorities


 Boston Red Sox: With a new manager in tow and sky-high expectations, should Boston shoot for the moon in free agency? Vote: Offseason priorities


 New York Yankees: One win away from the World Series and in search of a new manager, how can New York take the next step? Vote: Offseason priorities


 Tampa Bay Rays: An offense that ranked 25th in runs per game and a payroll that ranked 28th present challenges for Tampa Bay in a division with the Red Sox and Yankees. Vote: Offseason priorities


 Toronto Blue Jays: After two straight ALCS appearances, the Blue Jays took a step back in 2017. How does Toronto rebound in the increasingly competitive AL East?  Vote: Offseason priorities

AL Central

 Cleveland Indians: After blowing a 3-1 lead in the 2016 World Series, the Indians finished with the AL's best record in 2017 but coughed up a 2-0 lead in the ALDS. Should solidifying the outfield be Cleveland's top priority?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Minnesota Twins: The Twins experienced one of baseball's biggest turnarounds last season and reached the playoffs as a wild-card team. How can Minnesota make sure its ascent continues?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Kansas City Royals: Since winning the World Series two years ago, the Royals have descended into mediocrity. Where is Kansas City's path back to the top, especially with so many key free agents potentially leaving?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Chicago White Sox: The rebuilding White Sox didn't win very many games last season, but they boast one of baseball's best farm systems. Is patience still the biggest key on the South Side?   Vote: Offseason priorities


 Detroit Tigers: A last-place finish and the worst bullpen ERA in baseball mean the rebuilding Tigers have a lot of work to do.  Vote: Offseason priorities

AL West

 Houston Astros: The World Series champions are young, talented and feature one of the best offenses in recent memory. Should the Astros prioritize pitching this winter?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Los Angeles Angels: The Angels came up short in the AL wild-card race as reigning MVP Mike Trout missed significant time with an injury. Where do the Halos go from here?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Seattle Mariners: Baseball's longest postseason drought reached 16 years as the Mariners once again failed to qualify. How should Seattle work toward snapping that streak?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Texas Rangers: The Rangers missed the playoffs for the first time in three years as their pitching staff ranked dead last in strikeout rate. Should Texas focus more on shoring up the bullpen or the rotation this winter?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Oakland Athletics: A last-place finish and near the bottom of the league in defensive runs saved mean the A's have a lot of work to do.  Vote: Offseason priorities

NL East

 Washington Nationals: With a new manager on board after another disappointing October exit, how should the Nats navigate their winter decisions?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Miami Marlins: The Marlins enter the offseason after missing the playoffs for a 14th straight year. Should Miami's new ownership group consider trading Giancarlo Stanton?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Atlanta Braves: The rebuilding Braves exceeded expectations with their third-place finish in the NL East; what's their next step?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 New York Mets: Injuries crushed the Mets' expectations, but their pitching was also a point of distress. How can New York regain a competitive edge in the NL East?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Philadelphia Phillies: The rebuilding Phils have holes all over the diamond ... so where should they start? Vote: Offseason priorities

NL Central

 Chicago Cubs: The Cubs were unable to repeat as champions after their bullpen unraveled in the postseason. How should Chicago approach its winter decisions?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers surprised many by challenging the Cubs in the NL Central before ultimately falling short of a postseason berth. Where does Milwaukee go from here?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 St. Louis Cardinals: A middling offense and a second straight October without baseball in St. Louis has the Cardinals searching for answers. Should the Redbirds add a big bat this winter?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Pittsburgh Pirates: The Pirates' anemic offense resulted in their worst record since 2011. Should Pittsburgh try to reel in a big bat this winter?  Vote: Offseason priorities


 Cincinnati Reds: A last-place finish with one of the worst pitching staffs in the league means the Reds have their work cut out for them.  Vote: Offseason priorities

NL West

Los Angeles Dodgers: The Dodgers fell just one win short of a World Series title. Should they focus on securing some of the pieces that got them there, or try to make a big splash during free agency? Vote: Offseason priorities


 Colorado Rockies: The Rockies finished 2017 with their most wins since 2009. Where should Colorado go from here?  Vote: Offseason priorities 


 Arizona Diamondbacks: The D-backs recorded their most regular-season wins since 2011, but they couldn't make it past the Dodgers in the NLDS. What is Arizona's biggest need this winter? Vote: Offseason priorities


 San Diego Padres: The Padres improved slightly in 2017, but they were still far away from making the postseason. What should San Diego prioritize during the winter?  Vote: Offseason priorities


San Francisco Giants: The 2017 season was an ugly one for the Giants. What moves should San Francisco make during free agency? Vote: Offseason priorities
