Risks we’d like to see MLB teams take this offseason

9Not every move during MLB offseason is a hit

We’re pretty sure that the St. Louis Cardinals aren’t going to regret trading for Paul Goldschmidt. But not every move made during the MLB offseason is a slam dunk. Some carry some risk.

There are plenty of those that we think should be taken this year. Bryce Harper would be a huge financial risk, especially for a team that hasn’t done much recently. Given his struggles in 2018, Dallas Keuchel would also be a big financial risk. Trade targets like Corey Kluber and Madison Bumgarner would cost a great deal of talent. But the risks would also all provide potentially huge payoffs for the teams taking them.

These are the risks that we’d love to see MLB teams take.
