Talking baseball: Marc Topkin answered your Rays questions

In advance of the winter meetings, our baseball writer will take your questions on the Rays and the rest of MLB.

Wondering what the Rays plans are for next season, take a look at the comments section below? Who they are looking to add or trade as they seek to build on their solid 2018 season and make to the playoffs next year?

What about the moves they've made so far, such as adding catcher Mike Zunino while letting go of Mallex Smith and C.J. Cron?

And how about the other teams, as the Rays try to close the gap on the Red Sox and Yankees? Where are the big-name free agents, such as Bryce Harper and Manny Machado likely to end up?

In advance of the winter meetings that open Sunday in Las Vegas, Times baseball writer Marc Topkin will take your questions Friday, starting at noon, right here on the newly redesigned

So bring your best questions or just follow along to see what others are asking and spend your lunch hour with us talking baseball.
