Because of the lack of player personnel movement, all of the national publications and national writers are creating the best of the remaining lists. Where will the top 10 remaining free agents land? How about where will the top 15 free agents and major trade personnel land? They all have opinions, and some of them are well thought out. However, while they have much better contacts, none of them no anymore until just before the player signs or the trade is made. Nobody predicted the Dodgers Reds trade, because nobody knows what Andrew Friedman is thinking. Nobody believes that Friedman will include Cody Bellinger in any trade. Why are they asking? Why not?

Pre-draft players have Perfect Game scouting reports. But none of us have access to the Dodgers inside scouting reports. Before people knock the Joel Ibarra minor league signing, please let us know how your personal scouting report graded him.
