  1. Astros clean up in Jarred Cosart trade

    Keith Law

    The six-player trade between the Astros and Marlins was the most interesting one of the day because, unlike most of the other deals at this exciting deadline, it included actual prospects -- minor leaguers and very young big leaguers going in both di...

  2. Yankees prove productive at the deadline

    Keith Law

    The Yankees were busy on Thursday, and managed to add a pair of small upgrades without doing any damage to their farm system. I argued all spring that the Yanks should sign Stephen Drew to play one year at third base, then slide him to shortstop a...

  3. Red Sox ace Andrew Miller trade

    Keith Law

    It's a small deal relative to the others we saw on Thursday, but the Red Sox acquiring lefty Eduardo Rodriguez from the Orioles for two months of left-handed reliever Andrew Miller was the best value move of the day -- a great return for Boston, and ...

  4. A shockingly low return for David Price

    Keith Law

    I'm floored that this is all the Rays got for David Price -- as are some of the execs I've talked to so far -- and I can't imagine that the return this winter would have been any worse. The three-way trade that sends Price to Detroit, Nick Franklin, ...

  5. Boston's return for Lackey merely OK

    Keith Law

    With Michael Wacha potentially out for the season, the Cardinals needed a better starter than Justin Masterson to shore up their rotation. John Lackey fits the bill, especially because they didn't have to dip into their farm system to acquire him. To...

  6. A's built for October, Sox for 2015

    Keith Law

    Strange as it seems, the 2014 A's don't lack offense, so they could afford to part with a player as productive as Yoenis Cespedes in a deal that makes the team better overall. Even if Jason Hammel hadn't had one of the worst four-start stretches ...

  7. Cleveland gets useful return for Masterson

    Keith Law

    The Cardinals needed another starter with Michael Wacha on the shelf for at least a few more weeks and possibly limited the rest of the way, but in adding Justin Masterson in a trade with the Cleveland Indians today, what they get is a low-end soluti...

  8. Scouting Royals, White Sox prospects

    Keith Law

    Some notes from a pair of Class A games I attended in the past week, beginning with a matchup between the Royals' and White Sox's high-A affiliates: • The Wilmington Blue Rocks' lineup is down two bats of note following last month's promotio...

  9. Giants fill critical need with Peavy

    Keith Law

    The San Francisco Giants get a huge boost to their rotation, shoring up a surprising weakness in their club, while the Boston Red Sox clear some funds and acquire a fringy starter prospect and a solid relief arm that has had trouble staying healthy. ...

  10. Mariners hope for Morales of last year

    Keith Law

    The Seattle Mariners need the 2013 version of Kendrys Morales -- they really needed him all year, but their need now remains acute -- and it's not clear if that player is coming back. Morales has looked old and slow since returning from his long l...

  11. Soria deal makes sense for both teams

    Keith Law

    The price for Joakim Soria is steep, as you'd expect for a pitcher of his pedigree and present performance, but he fills the Detroit Tigers' most critical need and is likely to help them in the postseason as well. The Tigers needed late-game relie...

  12. Padres missed chance with Headley

    Keith Law

    The biggest criticism of the Josh Byrnes era in San Diego has to be the move he never made. The former Padres general manager held on to Chase Headley even after Headley had a career year in 2012, and we're now into a second successively worse season...

  13. Midseason top five farm systems

    Keith Law

    Ranking all 30 organizations based on their minor league talent is a major undertaking each winter, which is why I always decline to do a re-ranking during the season. There's simply no way I could do it justice given the amount of work it requires. ...

  14. Padres come out ahead in Street deal

    Keith Law

    The Los Angeles Angels were desperate for a closer in the best year they've had since acquiring Albert Pujols and the San Diego Padres had a spare closer lying around whom they didn't need, but the amount of talent heading to San Diego in exchange fo...

  15. Astros' failure to sign Aiken a total fiasco

    Keith Law

    In the story of the Houston Astros' failure to sign two of their top draft picks on Friday, there are neither villains nor victors, only victims left holding empty bags. The first overall pick in the draft, Brady Aiken, declined to sign with the Astr...
