The biggest question of the offseason is a two-parter.

1. Will Clayton Kershaw opt out of the final two years and $65 million of his contract?2. If he does opt out Freddie Freeman Jersey , will he consider signing elsewhere, or will it just be to get more years from the Dodgers?He did little to put Dodgers fans minds at ease with his recent comments."I would be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind," Kershaw told reporters when asked if he had thought at all about how he may have made his last home start at Dodger Stadium.The chances are he'll opt out, as the security that comes with adding a few years' worth of guaranteed money will be too appealing to pass up.It's hard to envision the free-spending Dodgers letting their homegrown star get away, but there's always the possibility that someone makes him an offer he can't refuse.Another postseason that doesn't end in a World Series title could also convince the 30-year-old that his best chance of winning atitle may be elsewhere.We shall see.Prediction:Kershaw opts out, re-signs on a five-year, $175 million deal with the Dodgers.Patrick CorbinMatthew Stockman/Getty ImagesIt's been a breakout season for Patrick Corbin.An All-Star for the second time in his career, he's gone 11-7 with a 3.23 ERA http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , 1.06 WHIP and 242 strikeouts (3rd in NL) in 195 innings for 4.4 WAR.The 29-year-old picked the perfect time for a career year. A case can be made he's the top starting pitching option on the market if Kershaw decides to stay put.So which team is the early favorite to sign him?As a Syracuse native, Corbin grew up a Yankees fan, and it sounds like he's open to the idea of donning pinstripes."It would definitely be great to play there," Corbin told Bob Nightengale of USA Today. "I grew up a Yankee fan. My whole family are Yankee fans. My mom, my dad, my grandpa, everybody. Really, every generation of my family has been Yankee fans.I know the Yankees have had some interest in the past Bob Uecker Jersey , and there were a lot of rumors this winter that got my family excited. It would have been cool."With J.A. Happ, CC Sabathia and Lance Lynn all headed for free agency, the Yankees have a clear need in the rotation. It stands to reason that bolstering the starting staff will trump making a run at someone like Bryce Harper or Manny Machado.Prediction:Corbin signs a four-year, $72 million deal with the Yankees. Charlie MortonStephen Brashear/Getty ImagesIf there's any player this year who might consider accepting a qualifying offer, it's Charlie Morton.The 34-year-old has become a different pitcher since joining the Houston Astros last season, going a combined 29-10 with a 3.39 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 360 strikeouts in 310.2 innings for 5.0 WAR.He's earning just $7 million this season and has earned roughly $40.7 million over the course of his career, according to Spotrac.Morton has hinted at potentially retiring at the end of the 2018 season in the past. The chance to return for one more year and earn what figures to be a salary north of $18 million by accepting a qualifying offer could be too tempting to turn down.His decision on the future could also impact the market for Dallas Keuchel.If Morton does return Tyler Flowers Jersey , the Astros might be more inclined to let Keuchel walk in free agency. Losing both standout starters would be a tough pill to swallow for the defending champs, though.Prediction:Morton accepts a qualifying offer and returns for one more year.All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, unless otherwise noted. The Boston Red Sox will go for a series victory when they close out a four-game set against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field.Boston (94-43) leads the majors in wins and has posted a 38-14 record since July 2. The Red Sox need a victory on Sunday to match their high-water mark for the season at 52 games above .500.The trajectory is not as kind in Chicago (54-82), which guaranteed its sixth sub-.500 season in a row after Saturday’s defeat. The White Sox are building toward the future but have shown promise lately by winning 12 of 18.Article continues below ...“I think we’re all pulling in the same direction, and it’s a lot of fun to be a part of right now,” rookie right-hander Michael Kopech told reporters after his most recent outing. “Since I’ve been here, we’ve been a winning team, and hopefully it stays that way for a long time.”Boston rallied to win Thursday’s series opener 9-4 http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , fell short 6-1 on Friday night in a game delayed by rain, and returned the favor with a 6-1 victory on Saturday evening.The Red Sox improved to 46-25 away from Fenway Park. The White Sox claim a home record of 26-42.Boston left-hander Brian Johnson (4-3, 4.02 ERA) will try to maintain the positive momentum in his 12th start of the season and the 18th start of his career. The 27-year-old former Florida pitcher will try to win his fourth decision in a row after going 3-0 with a 4.36 ERA in seven games (six starts) since July 26.Johnson has not faced the White Sox in his career.Chicago will counter with veteran right-hander James Shields (5-15, 4.54 ERA), who will make his 29th start. Shields has pitched at least six innings in nine of his past 12 outings and has been better than his record suggests.In 28 career starts against the Red Sox, Shields is 9-14 with a 4.40 ERA. He has walked 56 and struck out 151 during 173 2/3 innings. He frequently faced the club while he was a member of the division rival Tampa Bay Rays.White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Shields and other starters had done their job well even if they did not necessarily have the victories to show for it this season.“We’re trying to get through the back end of ballgames to complete what those guys on the front end have done,” Renteria said recently to reporters. “Right now, we’re going to try to find out a lot Phil Niekro Jersey , so we’ll see how it goes. But it doesn’t ever take away, regardless of the outcome at the end, it never takes away from what those guys have done at the beginning of the ballgame.”The Red Sox and the White Sox split their first six meetings of the season.As other teams scrambled to add veterans this week for a possible playoff push, Boston stayed the course.“There wasn’t one player that we had interest in that we would have liked to pursue that ever got back to us (in the waiver order), which we understood kind of thinking going into August,” Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowksi said to MassLive.com. “Some guys got through waivers. But we didn’t significantly pursue any of those players.’
