Let’s be honest: New Year’s resolutions almost never work out. Of course, that’s no reason not to make them in the first place. 

Looking around the big leagues, there are resolutions—both big and small, bold and not so bold—that all 30 MLB clubs need to be making. 

For teams like the Washington Nationals and the Detroit Tigers, it’s resolving whether it’s time to part with a free-agent-to-be ace. For other teams, like the Cleveland Indians and the Philadelphia Phillies, it’s a matter of resolving to ditch an underperforming and high-priced veteran who’s nothing but dead weight. 

There are also clubs, like the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners, who should be resolving to end their playoff-less streaks. Plus, there’s even a dark horse or two who should be resolving to make an unexpected October run.
