  • Rosenthal: Kinsler surprised, excited to be traded
    November 21, 2013, 9:57 AM EST

    Ian Kinsler is in Hawaii, vacationing with his family. His agent, Jay Franklin, said that for he and Kinsler, news of the trade sending the second baseman to the Detroit Tigers was like "getting smoked on the left side of the head." But in a good way

  • Rosenthal: A-Rod in A-ttack mode, and there's more noise to come
    November 20, 2013, 8:14 PM EST
    Some people will buy it. Maybe not a lot, maybe only a lunatic fringe, but some. Some people will view Alex Rodriguez as a martyr, and there is nothing baseball can do about that now.
  • Rosenthal: Dodgers' Kemp doesn't want trade but accepts it's possible
    November 20, 2013, 2:56 PM EST
    Matt Kemp does not want to be traded, but understands why the Los Angeles Dodgers could move him, and that his preference – if it happens – would be to join a winning team.
  • Keeping stars will cost Nats
    November 18, 2013, 12:09 AM EST
    Ian Desmond and Jordan Zimmermann aren't as well known as other Washington standouts, but the team needs to start looking into locking them into pricey deals.
  • Should O's trade catcher, closer?
    November 14, 2013, 1:37 AM EST
    The Orioles could gain flexibility by trading Matt Wieters and Jim Johnson. The team then could find cheaper alternatives at both positions, and turn aggressive in free agency.
  • Who will Angels deal for pitching?
    November 13, 2013, 12:58 AM EST
    The Angels are determined to add starting pitching. But which hitter are they willing to trade?
  • Ruiz would make sense for Red Sox
    November 12, 2013, 10:08 PM EST
    The Red Sox might be willing to overpay Carlos Ruiz on a two-year deal. Here's why it makes sense.
  • Why suburbs will suit the Braves
    November 12, 2013, 1:22 AM EST
    Despite their success, Braves have financial challenges. Moving to new ballpark will help the bottom line.
  • Santana's agents come well-prepared
    November 11, 2013, 9:01 PM EST
    Ervin Santana's agents have done their homework as they seek megadeal on free-agent market.
  • Kinsler, Andrus in Texas squeeze-out?
    November 09, 2013, 6:42 PM EST
    With a logjam of middle infielders in Texas, a trade of second baseman Ian Kinsler or shortstop Elvis Andrus is starting to look inevitable.
  • Red Sox run rampant in early rumors
    November 09, 2013, 11:03 AM EST
    Early in free agency, one agent says, “every team is interested in every player.” While that is an over-statement, most clubs generally cast a wide net, and their interest in some free agents is greater than their interest in others.
  • Tulowitzki, Dodger vets top trade talk
    November 07, 2013, 11:22 PM EST
    MLB's Hot Stove is turned to 'high,' with rumors of the Rockies trading Troy Tulowitzki to the Cardinals, and the Dodgers moving one of their expensive veteran outfielders.
  • Santana, Nolasco looking to cash in
    November 07, 2013, 7:18 PM EST
    Ervin Santana is seeking more than $100 million. RIcky Nolasco wants $80 million. Free agency opened Monday and club officials already are complaining of sticker shock.
  • Why Granderson could test market
    November 07, 2013, 8:19 AM EST
    One school of thought on Curtis Granderson is that he will accept the Yankees' qualifying offer, return on a one-year, $14.1 million contract and re-enter the free-agent market next off-season. I wouldn't bet on it.
  • Scherzer, Nats could be good fit
    November 06, 2013, 12:12 AM EST
    The Nationals want to add an elite starting pitcher in a trade, according to major league sources. Rays left-hander David Price is an obvious possibility. But Tigers righty Max Scherzer would be an even better fit.
  • Bidding starts clean on Cano
    November 05, 2013, 4:53 PM EST
    Just because Robinson Cano asked the Yankees for more than $300 million doesn't mean he will require that sizable an amount in free agency.
