    Buster Olney

    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 ...

    Keith Law

    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 ...

    Doug Mittler

    The free agent pitcher under the most intense scrutiny at the winter meetings was Jon Lester. Now that Lester has landed a $155 million deal with the Chicago Cubs, the attention shifts to Max Scherzer, who, at the very least, will end up as a very ri...
