Rays, Padres talking Wil Myers

The Rays and Padres are reportedly discussing a massive deal - in scope and number of players - according to Ken Rosenthal. We heard earlier in the Winter Meetings that Wil Myers's name had emerged as a trade candidate, and it was unexpectedly. The former Rookie of the Year's contract will remain affordable for a long time, and he's coming off what should be considered a down season after a sophomore slump and a broken wrist during a fielding blunder. Myers is also somewhat without a position, given the emergence of Kevin Kiermaier and the availability of defenders Ben Zobrist and David...

Dock of the Rays: who could afford a Ben Zobrist trade?

"Irresponsibly Speculating on the Return From a Hypothetical Ben Zobrist Trade" Last week during the Winter Meetings, we saw the market set the bar pretty high for a Ben Zobrist trade, with Andrew Friedman's Dodgers trading the second best left handed pitching prospect in the game for Howie Kendrick, one-for-one.

In the wake of a relatively unproductive trip to baseball's annual Winter Meetings, Mariners General Manager Jack Zduriencik has been remarkably coy about his plans to fill Seattle's right field openings. Most of the high-profile targets (like Yoenis Cespedes and Matt Kemp) appear to be off the board, and while the team continues to pursue Melky...

Market sets value for Ben Zobrist trade

Andrew Friedman has himself a day -- Winter Meeting Recap: Day 3 Unable to acquire Ben Zobrist, as it would seem, Andrew Friedman and the massive front office from Chavez Ravine unloaded three trades on the baseball world yesterday to make something else work. Finally, the Winter Meetings have turned into what they're supposed to be: chaos -- and with great implications for the Rays. *** The first move the Dodgers executed has been described as a blockbuster, with recent All-Star middle infielder Dee Gordon, veteran right-hander Dan Haren, infielder Miguel Rojas and cash going to Miami in...
