  4. Tigers don't get enough for Doug Fister

    Keith Law

    The Washington Nationals seemed like a good bet to go after an undervalued starter for the back of their rotation (I guessed Brett Anderson, who was originally drafted by Mike Rizzo in Arizona, in a post earlier on Monday) and they did just that, sen...

  9. Setting expectations for recent call-ups

    Keith Law
