Good morning, McCoven!

Hopefully you had an enjoyable weekend. Long weekends are nice for relaxing, visiting family, and reflecting on the holiday that was.

But you know who wasn’t resting this weekend? Farhan Zaidi and crew. No time is safe from breaking news under this leadership. I thought I could go to a family member’s baby shower on a Sunday afternoon in the middle of a three day weekend in November, thinking it would be safe from breaking news. I. THOUGHT. WRONG.

We now have a new general manager, and very soon we’ll have a new manager. And there’s already talk of trading Brandon Belt. Well, I guess that last one just makes this a standard off-season. But still! He’s not the only one included in the trade talking points. I think it’s fairly safe to say that this will be an off-season unlike any other we’ve seen in quite some time.
