    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez posted a .764 OPS in the second half of the 2012 season and went 3-for-27 (.120) in the playoffs.

    Yunel Escobar

    While there are bigger names out there to be had, perhaps no player is more likely to be traded this week than new Marlins infielder Yunel Escobar.

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Some players with partial no-trade clauses choose to put the teams they really don’t want to play for on their block list.

    My strong presumption is that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens will not make the Hall of Fame this year.
