  1. Astros make a nice pickup; Royals don't

    Keith Law

    Jed Lowrie has agreed to terms with the Houston Astros and will be paid about what I expected, getting three years and $23 million with a fourth-year option for another $5 million. It's a deal that underpays him based on expected performance but pric...

  2. Moving Rollins the right move for Philly

    Keith Law

    The Philadelphia Phillies threw up the black flag about a year or so too late, but appear to be finally acknowledging that their major league roster was too damaged to repair and that it was time to begin the process of weeding out the old guard. In ...

  3. Kemp's not cheap, but Padres get a bat

    Keith Law

    The Padres' 2014 offense was one of the worst in big league history, and acquiring Matt Kemp is a huge boost toward fixing that weakness (although I'm not sure that any one player, even Mike Trout, could do that by himself). Padres left fielders hit ...

  4. Dodgers' creativity prevails Wednesday

    Keith Law

    The Dodgers created an opening at second base with their trade of Dee Gordon to the Miami Marlins early in the day Wednesday, and filling it with Howie Kendrick was a quick one-or two-win upgrade over what they could have reasonably expected from Gor...

  5. Dodgers did well to trade Dee Gordon

    Keith Law

    The Los Angeles Dodgers need a shortstop, so of course they traded their second baseman. Meanwhile, the Miami Marlins needed a second baseman and got one, but I think the price they paid exceeds what they got in return. In Dee Gordon, the Marlins ...

  8. My predictions for the ALDS matchups

    Keith Law

    I'm of the opinion that most playoff series odds are no better than about 55-45, even when one team is clearly superior to the other, because of the randomness inherent in short series and in baseball in general. The two AL Division Series matchu...

  9. 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...

  13. Trout deal makes sense for him, Angels

    Keith Law

    The Miguel Cabrera deal seemed like it might pose big problems for the Los Angeles Angels as they tried to lock up Mike Trout, the best player in baseball in each of the past two seasons, to a long-term extension, but the Halos and Trout were apparen...

    Though only 17 years old until August, Julio Urias was my No. 14 prospect coming into 2014 and he's already showing big league stuff. He performed very well in a brief stint in the low Class A Midwest League last year and threw an inning for the Dodg...

  16. Dee Gordon's hitting still a concern

    Keith Law
