    The Marlins and outfielder Giancarlo Stanton avoided arbitration on Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $6.5 million deal for the 2014 season. As MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports, however, the two sides haven’t discussed a contract extension: For months, Miami had stated it was open to discussing a multi-year deal with the 24-year-old right fielder. Such conversations…

    Now that Robinson Cano has joined the Mariners, Jay Z has a new Yankee in the fold at Roc Nation Sports. It’s left-hander CC Sabathia, who tweeted out the following picture earlier this evening: #RocNationSports La Familia pic.twitter.com/DvFKr3PpN7 — CC Sabathia (@CC_Sabathia) January 17, 2014 Sabathia was previously represented by Brian Peters of Legacy Sports.…

    The Yankees can finally move forward with their plans for 2014 now that Alex Rodriguez has received a 162-game ban which also includes the postseason. And they have to be pretty happy with how things have worked out. It’s easy to see the benefits of having Rodriguez off the books for 2014, as he was…

  4. The Mariners could add intrigue to the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes

    Japanese pitching star Masahiro Tanaka will be courted by a handful of interested teams, including the Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Rangers, and Diamondbacks, but as ESPN’s Andrew Marchand details, it may be the Mariners who emerge victorious by the January 24 deadline. Marchand cites some reasoning laid out by Dan Szymborski also at ESPN — that…

    Following up the ranking of the five best off-seasons thus far, let’s take a look at the five worst. 26. Minnesota Twins — The Twins won 66 games in 2013 but help is on the horizon. They have one of the best Minor League systems around and it’s only a matter of time before the…

  6. Ranking the best off-seasons so far

    Carlos Beltran

    We’re almost into 2014, which means we’re only about a month and a half away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training — the official start of baseball. Most of the big name free agents are off the board and thus most teams have already finished shopping or have done most of the heavy…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue. Stars denote players who received qualifying offers and thus will cost their new team a draft pick if they sign elsewhere. (Non-tenders have…

  8. The Rays are in no rush to trade David Price

    After the Mariners signed second baseman Robinson Cano to a ten-year, $240 million contract two weeks ago, many predicted that the next shoe to drop would be a trade with the Rays for David Price. But reports indicated that the Rays would only let go of the left-hander if the Mariners included Taijuan Walker in…

  9. Fun with Free Agent Numbers

    Another free agent domino fell earlier today as outfielder Shin-Soo Choo signed a seven-year, $130 million deal with the Rangers. With Choo gone, Nelson Cruz is the last remaining elite free agent hitter left on the board while Stephen Drew, Matt Garza, and Bronson Arroyo are some of the top remaining players beyond Cruz. With…

  10. Yankees Hot Tub Time Machine

    hot tub time machine

    It just gets better and better with the New York Yankees. They just signed Brian Roberts. I wrote before (in my Ichiro Suzuki essay for the 100 greatest players) that this Yankees team would look awfully good … in 2006. But by essentially replacing Robinson Cano with Brian Roberts, they have — in a weird…

  11. Yankees “likely” to sign second baseman Brian Roberts

    Dec 17, 2013, 12:05 AM EST

    brian roberts getty

    New York already has Kelly Johnson around as a potential Robinson Cano replacement at second base, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Yankees are “likely to sign” Brian Roberts too. Roberts was once among the best all-around second basemen in baseball for the Orioles–consistently hitting for high batting averages with tons of doubles…

  12. Darwin Barney could be an option for the Yankees

    Dec 14, 2013, 10:01 AM EST

    Darwin Barney Getty

    Many viewed Omar Infante as the most likely replacement for Robinson Cano, but that possibility is off the board now that he has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $30 million deal with the Royals. Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago now wonders whether the Yankees will revisit the idea of trading for Cubs…

    Tremors from Geoff Baker’s earth-shattering piece in the Seattle Times are still being felt. At the same time the Mariners were closing in on a ten-year deal with second baseman Robinson Cano, many were questioning the authenticity and direction of GM Jack Zduriencik’s front office as a result of revelations in Baker’s piece, reliant on…

  14. Report: Royals agree to a deal with Omar Infante worth about $30 million over four years

    Dec 13, 2013, 5:52 PM EST

    Omar Infante Getty

    ESPN’s Buster Olney is reporting that the Royals and Omar Infante have agreed to a contract in which the free agent infielder will earn approximately $30 million over four years. Infante solves an obvious middle infield need for the Royals, who are loading up for a run at the AL Central in 2014. Infante, who…

  15. Major League Baseball to investigate Randy Levine for tampering as a result of Mike Trout comment

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EST

    Randy Levine

    This seems pretty dumb: Major League Baseball plans to investigate Yankees president Randy Levine’s comments about Mike Trout today to see if they constitute tampering. In case you missed it, Levine said this earlier today when asked about why the Yankees were unwilling to give Robinson Cano a ten-year contract: “If Mike Trout was here,…

  16. Robinson Cano, Yankees trade barbs about “disrespect”

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Robinson Cano

    The divorce is over and each of them has found a new love, but Robinson Cano and the Yankees have still decided it’s worth trading barbs about “disrespect” in the past 24 hours. Here’s Robinson Cano at yesterday’s press conference when asked about his dealings with the Yankees before accepting the Mariners’ $240 million offer:…

    A week in the sun and warmth is over. A week of the hottest hot stove action in recent memory preceded it. It’s pretty easy to say that a great bulk of the work teams needed to do before Opening Day 2014 has been accomplished since we tossed the last of our Thanksgiving leftovers. But…

  18. Reds have interest in Omar Infante, but need to move Brandon Phillips first

    Dec 12, 2013, 7:30 PM EST

    Omar Infante

    Another potential suitor has joined the Omar Infante sweepstakes: the Cincinnati Reds. But, as Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY reports, they would need to move current second baseman Brandon Phillips first. Recently, the Yankees — sans Robinson Cano — and the Royals have had the strongest links to Infante. As for Phillips, the Reds offered…

  19. Highlights from the Robinson Cano news conference

    robinson cano and jay z

    The Mariners just held a news conference where they introduced new second baseman Robinson Cano after he officially signed his ten-year, $240 million contract. It was your standard presser involving a star player, but Cano and GM Jack Zduriencik both raised some eyebrows with some comments. Via Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune: “I…

  20. Wanna watch Robinson Cano sign his contract with the Mariners?

    Dec 12, 2013, 5:55 PM EST

    New York Yankees v Houston Astros

    The Mariners just posted this Vine, showing Robinson Cano adding his signature to his ten-year, $240 million contract with recently-embattled GM Jack Zduriencik to his right and agent Jay-Z behind him. As beard aficionado Aaron Gleeman pointed out earlier, Cano is sporting a nice new beard which would have violated the Yankees’ personal grooming rules.

    Boras sulking

    Jay Z lured Robinson Cano away from Scott Boras and then got him a $240 million contract with the Mariners, so naturally Boras took a couple shots at Beyonce’s husband yesterday: It’s very different to be the creator of the umbrella versus those who stand under it. … When you’re bringing the prettiest girl to…

  23. Report: The Mariners are still interested in Nelson Cruz

    Nelson Cruz

    After shocking the baseball world by agreeing to a 10-year, $240 million contract with second baseman Robinson Cano last week, the Mariners reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Corey Hart today while picking up Logan Morrison in a trade with the Marlins. However, they aren’t done attempting to remake their offense. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick…

    UPDATE: Well, now it makes more sense. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman was told by an NL source that before the Yankees turned down the deal, Phillips asked to the Reds re-open his contract and give him more money as an incentive to agree to a trade. Phillips has a limited no-trade clause which allows him…
