Scott Kazmir returns to Los Angeles and Stephen Drew becomes the second most popular second baseman to sign with the Nationals in the last week.

Ben and Craig do a mock draft of their own, based solely on name quality, and it's a strong class.

With the year winding to a close, Baseball Prospectus is revisiting some of our favorite articles of the year. This was originally published on June 5, 2015.

There are lots of MLB mock drafts happening right now. Some variations rely on “MLB Insider” information to try and accurately predict which players will end up where. Others take a more educational approach, teaching fans about players they’ll see years down the line in a fun format. A third type is the classic “here’s what I’d do” mock draft, in which experts essentially roll out a ranking. All are entertaining, all are valuable and all generally tell you something about a player you didn’t know beforehand.

There Is No Offseason (TINO) is a Baseball Prospectus fantasy podcast focusing exclusively on dynasty and long-term keeper formats. We will discuss both the major and minor league sides of the game, but all within the spectrum of long-term value, and never missing an opportunity to take a jab at Craig.

The risers and fallers down in the desert.

It’s been a bit since we brought you a prospect progress report, but with postseason play entering its final week and the Arizona Fall League earning more of the spotlight going forward, we thought we’d take a look at some players who got off to interesting starts. This isn’t necessarily just a check in on box-score stars, but rather players who have dynasty value and have seen that value shift one way or the other over the course of the season, and who will be worth keeping tabs on throughout the AFL.

Son of Raul has a chance to make his major-league debut in the golldarned World Series.

The Situation: The Royals are seeking some additional flexibility at the end of their World Series roster, and Raul Adalberto Mondesi will provide the middle-infield depth that Terrance Gore cannot, while still offering speed to burn as a pinch-runner.

Background: Signed for $2 million in 2011, Mondesi has made impressive strides while being aggressively challenged his entire career as a professional. While he’s spent a full season in each level at which he’s played, Mondesi was always one of the younger players at his levels, and he hadn’t faced a pitcher younger than him until this season at Double-A. While he’s made believers out of many with his glove, speed and arm, the aggressive schedule designed by Kansas City has left his offensive future cloudy with no chance of bases on balls. But viewing his production through the lens of age relative to level, merely surviving is a success, and he has done that—if just.

The Dodgers fired their manager, who did fine.

When I was a kid, I earned the nickname “Donny” from my sister thanks to my habit of breaking into a discussion by asking “what’s going on? what are you talking about?” and the recent success of The Big Lebowski. I can’t count the number of times I was told I was out of my element. It’s this phrase, heard in the thundering tone of John Goodman’s Walter Sobchak, that came to me throughout Don Mattingly’s tenure with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Stolen bases are down across the league, so where can fantasy owners turn to find swipes for their squads?

There were 2,505 stolen bases last season. Sounds like a lot, right?
