2016 Winter Meetings Open Thread: Tuesday

The first day of the 2016 Winter Meetings came and went without a move for the Yankees. Two of their reported free agent targets, Rich Hill and Mark Melancon, signed with other teams. Now that Matt Holliday is on board as the DH, pitching is the top priority, and Brian Cashman is being open-minded. “From […] The post 2016 Winter Meetings Open Thread: Tuesday appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Red Sox notes: Dave Dombrowski prioritizing finding 8th-inning reliever, will wait out designated hitter market

OXON HILL, Md. — As it turned out, the signings of Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran weren’t all that big a deal to the Red Sox, after all. And that bit of news was just part of the eyebrow-raising that Dave Dombrowski’s meeting with the media elicited Monday evening. “There were not,” said the Red […]

DH target Pedro Alvarez grew up loving Red Sox, even though he’s from Bronx

The Red Sox have had dalliances with Pedro Alvarez over the years. Could he finally join them? With the Red Sox in the market for an affordable DH on a one-year deal, and higher-profile performers like Carlos Beltran (Astros) and Matt Holliday (Yankees) leaving the board, someone like Alvarez could be a fit. That would […]

The meaning of Matt Holliday in New York

Cardinals, we love you but you’re bringing us down. As the Winter Meetings get underway, news broke late yesterday afternoon that Matt Holliday has signed a one-year contract with the New York Yankees worth $13 million. Before the end of the 2016 season, the writing was on the wall that it was very unlikely that Holliday would be back with the Cardinals for 2017. The club announced at the tail-end of September that they would not be picking up his $17 million option, and once the offseason hit its stride there was virtually no talk of an amended contract between the two sides. Holliday...

Baseball Winter Meetings live updates: Latest news, rumors from Day 1

The Detroit Tigers wont be pursuing many free agents this year, but they could be active in the trade market. NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. -- Baseball's annual Winter Meetings begin in earnest on Monday, although news started percolating early as baseball officials arrived in the Washington, D.C., area on Sunday night. The Yankees signed St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday to a one-year, $13 million contract; attention turned to free-agent slugger Edwin Encarnacion; and former commissioner Bud Selig and longtime team executive John Schuerholz were selected for...

Yankees sign Matt Holliday to one-year deal, further shrinking Red Sox DH market

Cross another potential Red Sox DH off the list. The Yankees on Sunday agreed to a one-year, $13 million deal with veteran slugger Matt Holliday, according to multiple published reports. Holliday, who turns 37 next month, hit .246 with 20 homers last year for the Cardinals, who did not pick up his $17 million option. […]

Beltran's Gone, Sox Turn Lonely Eyes To Holliday

World Series 2007 At Fenway ()In his valiant effort to avoid exceeding the MLB luxury tax threshold, John Henry has allowed the former apple of Dave Dombrowski's eye (Carlos Beltran) to flee to Houston. Sometimes, being cheap has positive outcomes. So, now, Henry is fixed on some other relatively inexpensive DH-types to cobble onto to an an otherwise young roster. Enter Matt Holliday. The rational is that he has a "relationship" with John Farrell—going back to Oklahoma State. Huh? Who they heck cares? Last season, the soon-to-be-37-year-old Holliday showed up to play 110 games—and hit...

Re-visiting the potential of a Chris Sale trade

A trade for Chris Sale likely starts with Alex Reyes Much of the focus of the Cardinals offseason has been on the position player side. After letting Matt Holliday and Brandon Moss go to free agency and moving Matt Carpenter to first base, the team has a pretty easily identifiable spot to fill in the outfield. On the pitching side, the team has Adam Wainwright, Mike Leake, Carlos Martinez, Lance Lynn, Michael Wacha, Alex Reyes, and Jaime Garcia all under control for next season. Starting pitching doesn’t seem to be a need, but if Chris Sale is available, the Cardinals still need to make a...
