But according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, a trade isn’t happening, as it doesn’t make sense for the Yankees given the current state of the Alex Rodriguez situation. The Yankees will need a third baseman if and when Rodriguez is suspended, but the decision regarding A-Rod won’t come until December. Therefore, as Sherman theorizes, any move in which the Yankees acquire a third baseman before then would likely involve a left-handed hitter, such as Eric Chavez, or someone, like Stephen Drew or Jhonny Peralta, who could play both third base and shortstop. Freese is a right-handed hitter capable of playing only third base.

McCutchen wins NL MVP, but Molina deserved it

ST. LOUIS -- As many statistics as there are in baseball, at least one more is needed. There needs to be a number to measure the intangibles, those hard-to-quantify factors that can't be found in the box score (or even on fangraphs.com). Otherwise, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina never will win what he deserved to win Thursday night: The NL MVP award. Instead, Molina finished...

Searching For the Value of Yadier Molina

The official 2013 National League Most Valuable Player is Andrew McCutchen, who was terrific. From what anyone can tell, he’s a very deserving winner, but the voting still came with a few little controversies. For one, Paul Goldschmidt didn’t pick up a single first-place vote, and all season he was incredibly clutch. For two, a pair of first-place votes went to Yadier Molina...
