As the winter meetings concluded, many Detroit Tigers fans were left to wonder why team officials even showed up. The reality is that Detroit’s roster is pretty well set in stone at this point. Yes, a change at shortstop could happen, and another right-handed bat might be added to the outfield mix, but by and large, the Tigers have all hands on deck.
The Tigers did make a few moves...

The Detroit Tigers, at least as far as Jim Leyland and GM Dave Dombrowski have let on, have not chased Rafael Soriano much yet, if at all. Continue reading →
The Red Sox’ offense is starting to take form after the additions of Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino. Now Boston will try and bolster the front end of their pitching rotation.
The Red Sox’ lack of pitching was at the epicenter of their 90-loss 2012 campaign and it will be key in bringing about a successful 2013 season. While Boston will not get Zack Greinke, since he signed...
With Zack Greinke finally off the market, teams will now key in on free agent pitchers Kyle Lohse, Ryan Dempster, Edwin Jackson and Anibal Sanchez.
The best of these pitchers is undoubtedly Kyle Lohse who is coming off another solid season and is now drawing interest from the Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels, but that list could grow now to include the Toronto Blue...
Each year, officials from the 30 Major League teams come together for the Winter Meetings to make deals via trades or free agent signings. Of course trades and free agent signings happen all year, but some important deals happen during the Winter Meetings. Some teams make a big splash, some teams just show up.
