Day three of baseball’s Winter Meetings still didn’t bring any movement on prize free agents Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke, but a resolution for at least one of them could be coming sometime this week. In the meantime, there were still some minor moves to help teams keep filling out their rosters and addressing their needs. Among today’s signings was...

Dan Haren

The best team in the Majors during the regular season last year is doing what it can to maintain that status going into 2013. Earlier today, the Washington Nationals signed starting pitcher Dan Haren to a one-year, $13-million deal. The Nats are hoping for a bounce-back year from the right-hander after one of the least productive of his career...

Mike Napoli

The MLB Winter Meetings were underway for just a few hours before the Boston Red Sox made the first big move, by signing catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli to a 3-year, $39-million deal. Between the needs he fills and the fact that the team tried to bring him to Boston two years ago, it was no secret that Napoli was...

Francisco Liriano

There's a famous episode of Seinfeld known as "The Two Face." Jerry meets a girl who looks absolutely amazing in certain lighting and absolutely hideous in others. Francisco Liriano is baseball's version of a two face. As a Twins fan, I've seen him go from 2006 All-Star, to minor league demotion, to a 14 win, 200 K season, to bullpen...

Tommy Hanson

Two quality hurlers are swapping coasts as their new, and former, teams address their pitching needs. The Atlanta Braves sent young starter Tommy Hanson to the Los Angeles Angels for reliever Jordan Walden. Last year, Hanson posted a 13-10 record with a 4.48 ERA and 160 strikeouts. Walden, meanwhile, appeared in 45 games for the Angels in 2012, posting...

Denard Span

It only took two years, but the Nationals finally completed their long quest to land underrated (in my opinion) Twins Centerfielder Denard Span. But they did have to give up one of their big prospects. And I mean big literally, in the form of 6'9" pitcher Alex Meyer. So who got the better of this trade? Let's analyze: When the...

Starlin Castro, Darwin Barney, David DeJesus, Tony Campana, Adrian Cardenas

Since the Cubs last World Series title in 1908 we have seen: 19 different US Presidents, 18 recessions, the conquering of human flight, the rise of the horseless motorcoach, Germany taking over Europe, then getting split in half, then reuniting, then becoming obsessed with David Hasselhoff, 4736 "Real Housewives" shows and 1 Honey Boo Boo. Is 2013 the year the Cubs...

Evan Longoria

The MLB Winter Meetings begin in a week and that’s when negotiations really begin to heat up. The big free agents remain unsigned, but teams have not been waiting until December to make moves. Among the biggest news of the offseason, so far, is the Tampa Bay Rays committing long-term to the cornerstone of their franchise. Third baseman Evan...
