Ok, so now the sterioid era is over (for all intents, I'm sure some guys are still finding a way to hit the roids, HGH or whatever) what's next?
We sort of kicked this around a while back talking about the next "moneyball" skill. But what sort of era is the game going to enter now?
Will it be an era of the resurgance of speed & defense? Another pitcher dominated dead-ball era? A time where station-to-station high BA low SLG guys excell? A time when a team of mostly tallented guys can whip up on a team of one superstar surrounded by crap?
On the team-building front, the trend is to hold onto prospects with a deathgrip. However, at this last deadline (and into August) most of the deals involved superstars/stars being shuffled around. What's the trend moving forward?
What sort of era are we heading into, and how will it effect the construction of teams in the years to come?
