Can Mike Trout ever get traded?

Mike Trout is the best player in baseball. He's also the most untradeable.

How big of a free agent misstep is Jacoby Ellsbury?

As his fourth year in New York begins, it’s hard to believe that Jacoby Ellsbury is, at best, an afterthought on the Yankees. In 2011, then on the Red Sox, Ellsbury was a near shoo-in for the AL MVP. This, after slugging a career high 32 home runs and hitting .321/376/.522 with 39 stolen bases. That year turned out to be something of an oasis in his Boston career. Most notably...
