  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. Yankees come out ahead in McCarthy deal

    Keith Law

    The New York Yankees' acquisition of Brandon McCarthy upgrades a beleaguered rotation that's not getting any help from the farm system, while the Arizona Diamondbacks don't capitalize on one of their most valuable trade assets and get nothing in retu...

  5. Examining Ike Davis trade, prospect notes

    Keith Law

    On Sunday, the Mets and Pirates put a face on the "player-to-be-named" component of the trade from earlier this season that sent Ike Davis to Pittsburgh, with New York acquiring lefty Blake Taylor, the Pirates' second-round pick from last year's Rule...

  6. Rangers should shop Adrian Beltre

    Keith Law

    The obvious solution to the Texas Rangers' latest injury crisis, losing Prince Fielder for the season, would be for the Rangers to call Scott Boras and try to sign Kendrys Morales to a one-year deal through the end of 2014. Unlike Stephen Drew, w...

  7. Breaking down Doumit trade and more

    Keith Law

    We've had a slew of minor moves over the past 24 hours, and I figured it would be easiest to wrap them all into one post. Doumit to the Braves for Gilmartin (trade details) Ryan Doumit's best attribute was always his bat, as he's never had a re...

  8. Chicago does well in Addison Reed deal

    Keith Law

    The Chicago White Sox get to accomplish several things at once with the trade of reliever Addison Reed to the Arizona Diamondbacks for third baseman Matt Davidson -- they fill a chronic hole at third, which also happens to be a position of scarcity a...

  9. Hart, Morrison carry similar risk for M's

    Keith Law

    The Seattle Mariners made two more moves Wednesday, signing Corey Hart and trading for Logan Morrison. In signing Hart, they gained one of the best short-term candidates of the offseason; he missed all of 2012 and was willing to sign a one-year de...

  10. Anderson a sensible snag for Rockies

    Keith Law

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The trade for Brett Anderson is exactly the kind of deal the Colorado Rockies should be making -- rolling the dice on a pitcher with some upside, accepting the risk as the price they have to pay to get someone whose stuff an...

  11. Angels win the three-team Trumbo trade

    Keith Law

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The three-team deal involving the Chicago White Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels feels very lopsided, with one team clearly ahead (on paper), one in the middle and one clearly behind, in large part because tw...

  12. Astros-Rockies trade a real surprise

    Keith Law

    The Houston Astros-Colorado Rockies trade might be the one move of the crazy past 48 hours that truly came out of nowhere for me. I knew Dexter Fowler was available, but didn't think Houston was a suitor and thought the Rockies would get more for him...

  13. Michael Choice a nice snag for Rangers

    Keith Law

    The Oakland Athletics traded some long-term value for short-term value in acquiring outfielder Craig Gentry and right-hander Josh Lindblom from the Texas Rangers, but the Rangers walk away with a potential everyday player in outfield prospect Michae...

  14. 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...

  15. Kazmir a shrewd investment for A's

    Keith Law

    The Oakland Athletics probably have outgrown their reputation as a team operating on a shoestring that forces them to shop in the bargain bin during free agency and in the trade market, as they've handed out a few larger deals -- such as the four-yea...

  16. Cards do better in Freese-Bourjos deal

    Keith Law

    Two players who had been squeezed off their current rosters by better players find themselves in new homes with the promise of more playing time, as the St. Louis Cardinals dealt third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas to the Los Angel...
