"If there’s a theme that connects these two teams, it’s that neither improved over the winter, something we discussed in the spring. Each kept its roster together at great cost (Judge, Diaz, Nimmo) or made like-for-like replacements (Verlander/Jacob deGrom; Rodon/Jameson Taillon) and counted on young players to improve the team from within. Each front office may have overestimated the talent on hand, especially in the middle of the roster, where both teams have been undercut by older players hitting their decline phase hard."
