  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. Chase Headley a solid re-sign for Yankees

    Keith Law

    The Yankees have all kinds of issues with their infield right now, and while re-signing Chase Headley -- which they did today for four years and $52 million -- doesn't solve the age problem, he's a very good (and slightly underrated, at least by fans...

  3. Cabrera an overpaid upgrade for Chicago

    Keith Law

    I've liked what the Chicago White Sox have done so far this offseason, as they've repositioned the major league club to make it more competitive while the Detroit Tigers, winners of four straight American League Central titles, seem to be sliding bac...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Mat Latos could be bargain for Marlins

    Keith Law

    The Reds needed to clear some payroll to be able to make more changes to the major league roster, and moving Mat Latos, which they did Thursday, seemed to be a priority given dissatisfaction in Cincinnati with his makeup and the shoulder issues that ...

  7. Red Sox, Tigers address needs Thursday

    Keith Law

    The Red Sox's need for starting pitching drove them to trade for Wade Miley on Wednesday and now has led them to cash in some of their outfield surplus to land Rick Porcello, the somewhat forgotten member of the vaunted Tigers' rotation. Porcello rea...

  8. A rebuild of Boston's rotation begins

    Keith Law

    The Red Sox need major league starters badly, front-line guys and mid-rotation horses, preferably with some years of control involved. Left-hander Wade Miley has three years left, all arbitration years, and has thrown right around 200 innings in each...

  9. 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...

  10. 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 ...

  11. 'Lovable losers' are winning this offseason

    Keith Law

    I said in early August the Cubs were two very good starting pitchers from contention in 2015. Well, they just landed one of those two starters, and given the alternatives out there in free agency and on the trade market, this was the guy they more or...

  12. Liriano, Pirates take the safe route

    Keith Law

    The Pittsburgh Pirates' re-signing of Francisco Liriano looks like a preemptive strike to lock him up before Jon Lester signs some kind of seven-year, $172 million deal that sends the losers in that market scurrying for the next-best available lefty....

  13. Cubs catch D-backs having clearance sale

    Keith Law

    The Chicago Cubs lost out on the one true everyday catcher available in free agency, Russell Martin, when he signed a five-year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, which meant they'd either have to patch something together from part-time players or take...

  14. Scouting 'other guys' in Samardzija deal

    Keith Law

    Oakland's teardown of their 2014 wild-card team continues unabated with the Monday trade of Jeff Samardzija for a package that seems to emphasize quantity (especially in terms of total years of control remaining) over quality, the inverse of how they...

  15. White Sox fill two major holes on roster

    Keith Law

    The White Sox do not have time for your so-called "rebuilding process." Their Monday night acquisition of starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija via trade and signing of closer David Robertson continues Chicago's acceleration back into contender range, ...

  16. Cubs bet on Hammel returning to NL form

    Keith Law

    The Chicago Cubs used Jason Hammel exactly as a non-contending team should last year: They signed him to a low-base, one-year deal, got three great months from him and flipped him to a contender for a prospect; he was part of the Jeff Samardzija trad...
