Many MLB experts have said this offseason that the Cleveland Indians boast one of the best starting rotations in baseball. Few think that they shouldn’t trade their key arms since they are both very good and very cheap. ESPN’s Buster Olney (insider only) believes that is true as well, as he ranks the Indians’ starting rotation second-best in MLB. Olney writes that the rankings...

Marlins may be considering a trade of Jose Fernandez

A second baseball writer is abstaining from Hall of Fame voting

Last week, we brought you the story that ESPN’s Buster Olney would abstain from voting on the Baseball Hall of Fame this year due to a backlog in candidates and the Hall’s refusal to remove the ten player cap on ballots.
