Harper recruits Rendon to Phillies

This is probably the Nationals' worst nightmare, even after their improbable championship run, but it's going to happen. Bryce Harper said all the right things as Washington marched to the World Series without him, but watching the title run surely had to hurt. Now, he'll get a measure of revenge by stealing the Nats' MVP candidate. Harper will make the call to Rendon - his old teammate and a fellow Scott Boras client - and lure him to Philly with a bit of brotherly love.

MLB 2019 preview: Five bold predictions for the upcoming season .

There's a natural fit on the field, too. Maikel Franco appears to have finally worn out his welcome in Philly, creating a natural hole at third for Rendon. A lineup of Rendon, Harper, Rhys Hoskins, J.T. Realmuto, and a healthy Andrew McCutchen would be extremely difficult for opposing pitchers to work around, especially in the cozy confines of Citizens Bank Park. Rendon might just be the piece that finally pushes the Phillies back to the playoffs. A Harper-Rendon reunion makes a lot of sense, and Harper knows it. The Phillies' $330-million man will stop at nothing to make it happen. - Sharkey-Gotlieb

Indians trade Lindor to Rays

After a shocking postseason run, the Rays will pull off another stunner by acquiring Francisco Lindor from the Indians. The 2019 season showed that Tampa Bay has a solid base but still needs a superstar to anchor the offense and compete with the Astros and Yankees in the AL. With the Indians unwilling to give Lindor a massive extension, the club will instead opt to move him with two years of control remaining in order to maximize the return.

The beginning of the offseason is ripe for prediction making. SI' s MLB staff weighs in with a bold proclamation on how this winter will unfold. The Red Sox have stated their wish to shed payroll in the coming years, and a new contract for Mookie Betts next offseason would necessitate a complete

The Rays are an excellent trade partner due to their strong farm system that boasts top prospect Wander Franco. And if the Indians wish to receive MLB-ready talent, Willy Adames could serve as the focal point of a package that also includes Matthew Liberatore and Shane Baz. The Rays have money to spend and could absorb the roughly $40 million or so that Lindor will be owed over the next two seasons through arbitration. - Bradburn

Yankees sign Cole for $300 million

It'll take a boatload of money for Cole to go somewhere other than his home state of California. Enter the New York Yankees and their need for starting pitching. General manager Brian Cashman has long sought an ace to lead the staff, and he'll be able to attract Cole by flexing the club's financial muscle. In the end, Cole will sign the richest free-agent deal ever given to a pitcher, which will far exceed David Price's seven-year, $217-million contract (most total money) and Zack Greinke's six-year, $206.5-million pact (highest average annual value).

4 Bold Predictions for Alabama vs LSU Heavyweight SEC Matchup

  4 Bold Predictions for Alabama vs LSU Heavyweight SEC Matchup Saturday will provide us the biggest matchup of the 2019 college football season so far when Joe Burrow and No. 2 LSU travel to Tuscaloosa to lock horns with Tua Tagovailoa, Nick Saban, and No. 3 Alabama. Given how potent these teams are on both sides of the ball, this game could turn into a Burrow-Tua shootout just as easily as it could a 14-7 slugfest like the Bama-LSU games of yesteryear. While these matchups rarely go according to plan, here's our best stab at what you can expect to see at Bryant-Denny. 4.

The MLB landscape has been altered greatly for the 2019 campaign after a tumultuous offseason . There will be plenty of familiar faces in new places this season Here we make five bold predictions for the new season . 1. A National League record will be set for lowest average to win a batting title.

The regular season has finally started and baseball is back. Every year certain teams and players that weren't expected to excel do, and some that had very high expectations can't live up to This year will be no different, and here are my five bold predictions for this year that might catch you by surprise

It's been more than a decade since New York landed CC Sabathia in 2008 with a seven-year, $161-million contract. Sabathia, who also grew up in California, spurned the Angels franchise and went east. Cole will do the same. - Ruminski

Red Sox trade Martinez to White Sox, freeing up cash for Betts

J.D. Martinez's Red Sox tenure has gone remarkably well through two seasons. He's won a World Series, he's crushed 79 home runs, he's knocked in 235 runs, and he's considered one of the AL's best players. However, the suddenly cash-strapped Red Sox now see Martinez's large salary as a burden.

Martinez, who decided against opting out of his deal this offseason, won't play another game for the Red Sox. Boston's front office - run by new chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom - will trade the 32-year-old to the South Side of Chicago in order to free up cash for Mookie Betts, who will sign a monster extension. With the White Sox, Martinez will provide another middle-of-the-order veteran bat while mentoring youngsters Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, and Yoan Moncada. - Mcwilliam

Five bold predictions for the 2020 Yankees

  Five bold predictions for the 2020 Yankees Lindor to the Yankees? Where do Andujar and Frazier play next year? Does Cole end up in the Bronx?These two young players have had key moments with the Yankees, both good and bad. They seem to have major league bats and have proven they can hit at this level. That said, both of their performances with the glove haven’t been impressive in any way.

With that being said, here are five bold predictions for the 2019 season This almost happened last season as it took a monster September for Christian Yelich to pass up Tony Gwynn' s record (.313) in 1988, but no other player has yet to pass that number with Scooter Gennett finishing second at .310.

Padres accelerate rebuild by trading for Syndergaard, signing Strasburg

The Padres likely have some buyer's remorse when it comes to massive contracts dished out to Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers in recent years. And general manager A.J. Preller has already seen one attempt at going all-in blow up in his face after briefly investing in James Shields, Justin Upton, Craig Kimbrel, and Matt Kemp. If the current iteration of the Friars doesn't bear fruit in short order, Preller may not be in the driver's seat much longer, so he'll be motivated to make some big moves this offseason.

First, he'll bring in San Diego native Stephen Strasburg, who opted out of his contract with the Nationals after being named World Series MVP. Second, the club will use its minor-league depth to swing a deal for Syndergaard. While this won't address certain offensive shortcomings, a 2020 rotation that features some combination of Strasburg, Syndergaard, Chris Paddack, Garrett Richards, Dinelson Lamet, and Joey Lucchesi will be very difficult to beat. Those arms could finally allow the Padres to legitimately challenge the Dodgers in the NL West. - Wilson
