The New Year gives us all a date to potentially make any upgrades. For MLB teams — even the best — that’s no different.

Each of the 10 playoff teams from 2018 has something about it that needs to be improved upon. In cases like the Chicago Cubs, Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros, and Los Angeles Dodgers, that probably means adding at least one new player. Other teams, like the Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees, have a resolution that, at least theoretically, could be achieved by the current players on the roster.

With an eye towards self improvement, these are the most pressing New Year’s resolutions for the 10 MLB playoff teams from the 2018 season.
