The 2018 MLB Winter Meetings are happening, and there are rumors about deals and free agent signings everywhere. Beneath all that buzz, the Hall Of Fame vote lurks. On January 22, 2019, the 2019 Baseball Hall Of Fame class announcement occurs. Curt Schilling will not be matriculating. Schilling is the equal of John Smoltz. Smoltz sailed in on his first chance in 2015, while Schilling is still waiting. Why is that?
The Red Sox have re-signed Nathan Eovaldi to a 4 year, $67.5 Million deal. The Postseason horse is back in the barn. Because of the lack of home grown talent, and a shallow free agent pool, this was a move the Red Sox needed to make.
