BP.com's original column launched in 1996, TA has been where Christina Kahrl ponders the implications of recent roster moves, their impact on managerial tactics or how they reflect organizational behavior. Plus a few too many references to things that have nothing to do with baseball.

On the Beat: Day Two of the Winter Meetings

6

John Perrotto

The Mariners consummate an expected deal, the Cardinals sign their veteran pitcher of choice, plus other news and rumors from Indy.

That the Mariners signed Chone Figgins as a free agent Tuesday certainly wasn't a surprise. The story had long broken that Figgins was on the verge of signing a four-year, $36 million contract with a club option for 2014. However, the interesting part of the formal announcement that came during the second day of the winter meetings was that Figgins wouldn't necessarily play third base. That sets the Mariners up to make any number of potential moves between now and the beginning of next season.

Ahead in the Count: Shifting in the Third-Base Market

19

Matt Swartz

Does expanding the pool of candidates at a position create relative bargains?

The recent signings of Placido Polanco and Chone Figgins by the Phillies and Mariners came in at relatively inexpensive deals compared to what the recent value of their performances might suggest. Polanco certainly seems like at least an average hitter for a third baseman, and is likely to play at least average defense at third as well. As I'll get into, the typical market rate for a third baseman of Polanco's abilities as a 34-year-old would be for about $25 million for a three-year deal. However, Polanco signed for $18 million plus a mutual option.

On the Beat: Weekend Update

John Perrotto

The top of the winter crop of free agents, a pair of NL Central teams sort out their off-season plans, plus rumors.

It is generally accepted that Matt Holliday will command the largest contract of any player on this year's free-agent market. Holliday is coming off a fantastic finish to the 2009 season. He hit .353/.419/.604 in 270 plate appearances with the Cardinals to help them win the National League Central championship after he was acquired from the Athletics in a late-July trade. The left fielder is also represented by Scott Boras, and no agent does a better job of consistently getting top dollar for his clients, even at a time when clubs insist they are going to spend less because of declining attendance and a soft economy.

Another post-season spin left the Angels short of the World Series, but was this a last gasp of a great multi-year run?

It was a must-see ballgame in the Bronx, but one man still enjoyed the action from a remote location.

I get accused of bias quite often, so I'm going to cop to one here. When I wrote :

Sorting and separating the best and worst baserunners from the rest.

"I don't really like to run, and that's why I didn't go out for track in high school. I ain't no fool, I see those dudes running around a track for a living. I wouldn't want to run against them. I wouldn't want to embarrass myself."

Derek catches a SoCal interleague Father's Day special, and gets his take on Bartolo Colon's return to action.

The Angels, on the other hand, are in last place, six games out of first place in the AL West, and six games under .500. The team has made the postseason three out of the last four years, but now stands in the awkward position of trying to decide if it's time to fish or cut bait. All season long, prospects who seem to be the future of this franchise have gotten call-ups to fill in or back up when the big club's veterans have faltered. Already, guys like Howie Kendrick (#5 on our top prospects list) Kendry Morales (#26 on our list) and Erick Aybar (#50) have gotten time on the major league roster. Only Morales has seen significant playing time in The Show, but the question lingering over the Angels' season has been when do you give up, deal the veterans, and put things in the prospects' hands?
