    It was reported earlier today that the Tigers “are prepared to spend big, big dollars” to re-sign right-hander Max Scherzer, but general manager Dave Dombrowski is singing a very different tune.

  6. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg says they’d have to be “wowed” to trade Cole Hamels

    Hamels would be a perfectly suitable “Plan B” for the Red Sox or Cubs if they miss out on Jon Lester.

    After acquiring Miguel Montero from the Diamondbacks today, the Cubs are expected to move Welington Castillo.

  11. The Braves told one team that if they wanted Evan Gattis they had to take B.J. Upton too

    Dec 9, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    B.J. Upton

    Which is a neat way of saying “nah, we really don’t want to trade Evan Gattis”

  12. Done deal: Cubs acquire Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero

    Dec 9, 2014, 4:07 PM EST

    Miguel Montero

    Drew Butera

    Perhaps the worst hitter in baseball is on the move.
