2021-2022 offseason text

Atlanta won the 2021 World Series. Let's set that aside and at least celebrate that Houston did not.

Time to start looking towards 2022. Some big questions to answer, starting with the CBA expiring at the end of November. Will they reach a new one, will there be a lockout?

Also something to follow during the offseason is player movement, considering MLB's archaic player retention system makes it so that you often don't reach free agency until you're 30. For those under more years of potential team control, who will get tendered, who will be allowed to walk away?

Of those that have actually reached the end of team control and are free agents, these are the top 25 this offseason, according to MLB.com

1. Carlos Correa, SS, HOU
