  1. Nationals make out like bandits in trade

    Keith Law

    Today's three-team, 11-player trade was a rarity for its focus on young players, both major leaguers and prospects, with just two backup catchers as the veterans in the deal. The San Diego Padres got something they wanted, but at a substantial cost; ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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 ...

  7. '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...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. 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, ...

  11. Indians upgrade offense with Moss trade

    Keith Law

    When healthy, Brandon Moss, who was traded by the Oakland Athletics on Monday to the Cleveland Indians for minor league infielder Joey Wendle, is an excellent platoon player, capable of handling first base or left field and is adequate in right, with...

  12. A no-brainer trade for the Yankees

    Keith Law

    The New York Yankees have acquired shortstop Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team deal. The Yankees sent pitcher Shane Greene to the Detroit Tigers, while Detroit sent pitcher Robbie Ray and minor league infielder Domingo Leyb...

  13. Markakis deal is a head-scratcher

    Keith Law

    I've liked much of what the Atlanta Braves have done this autumn, starting with replacing most of their front office and continuing with the trade of Jason Heyward, but the Nick Markakis contract doesn't make much sense in any context. He'd be a grea...

  14. Trade: Cards go all-in, Braves get younger

    Keith Law

    Monday's trade between the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves indicates the Cardinals are going all-in for 2015. Jason Heyward is just a year from free agency, but that one year will be a very valuable one, even if he just maintains the status...
