Atlanta general manager Frank Wren's goal is to find a left fielder who can lead off. So far, he has come up empty. The Braves had no interest in going as high as the three-year, $39 million deal that free agent Shane Victorino got from the Boston Red Sox. That left Wren concentrating fully on trade options, but he left Nashville without being able to make a match. The Braves have interest in Emilio Bonafacio, who this fall was part of the Miami-Toronto blockbuster trade. The Blue Jays, though, seemed reluctant to deal the speedy and versatile veteran. Earlier, the Braves had talked to Minnesota about Denard Span. However, the Twins dealt him to the Washington Nationals, the National League East champs. Then the Braves inquired about the Twins' Ben Revere, but Minnesota traded him to ...

Two seasons and two second-place finishes in the National League East were enough to convince the Atlanta Braves that they want manager Fredi Gonzalez around long-term. The Braves picked up Gonzalez's contract option for 2014, the team announced Wednesday at the winter meetings. "I think he did a terrific job of leading us to the playoffs in 2012," Braves general...
So I heard that this Mike Trout kid had a pretty good year. For a position that was already top-heavy with elite talent, outfield was infused with two phenomenal rookies who should be top-10 talents for years to come. We end our outfielders week with 12 observations from the past season, but if you haven’t checked out the 5 surprises or blind resume yet, make sure you make some...
It's difficult to like what the Los Angeles Angels have done this offseason, particularly when they seem likely to lose free-agent right-hander Zack Greinke.
I wrote recently about the different approaches of the two L.A. teams . But the Angels' starting-pitching choices may not be as illogical as they appear.
