Free Agent Squad- $2M and Below

With a shrewd eye for talent, savvy business sense, and luck, a bargain can still be found in the free agent market. I composed a 25-man roster of free agents signed last offseason to contracts of $2 million or less. Aside from a shaky back-end of the rotation, this team could compete. Payroll - $26.75 million (via Cot's Baseball Contracts)WAR - 33.1 (via Baseball-Reference)Catcher...

Cubs End of Season Awards

Despite their 5th straight losing season, 2014 should be considered a success. With the arrivals of some top prospects it is clear the Cubs have turned the corner on the rebuilding process. Dectractors will point to another Cubs losing season and how they have had other “top prospects” were busts, etc. History will never be on the side the Cubs but since June 1st after a 20...

Dugout Digest – the Royals are fading away

I think it’s a bit misleading to say that the Kansas City Royals are fading, which I did in the subject of this post, but Kansas City has lost two in a row to Detroit in interesting fashion. The Royals got pummeled from pillar to post on Friday, and barely lost on Saturday, thanks in large part to a controversial call in the sixth inning. But let’s not put all of the blame on...
