Rumor Roundup: Wednesday, January 16

Daniel Rathman

The Nationals' latest move might affect their demands for Mike Morse, Scott Hairston might sign soon, and the Dodgers are looking into Scott Rolen.

The Nationals were widely expected to make a move around this time, a week after they brought Adam LaRoche back on a two-year deal, but that move was supposed to involve trading Michael Morse for prospects or bullpen help. Instead, Washington got the latter in the form of Rafael Soriano, who inked a two-year, $28 million pact on Tuesday, an addition that may serve to create new trade avenues for general manager Mike Rizzo.

What does the Soriano signing mean for Morse?
According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Nationals’ focus in Morse-related negotiations could turn away from relievers and toward other needs in the wake of the Soriano signing. Rizzo was believed to be seeking a replacement for departed lefties Sean Burnett and Tom Gorzelanny in earlier talks, and while Soriano throws right-handed, he has a solid track record against opposite-handed batters. The 33-year-old Soriano held lefties to a .256 TAv in 2012, in line with the .261 mark that they have logged over the course of his career, and Tyler Clippard (.215 TAv in 2012, .217 lifetime) gives manager Davey Johnson another multi-purpose weapon, diminishing the need for a traditional set-up southpaw.

As the bidding on Yoenis Cespedes begins in earnest, take a look back at some prior prospects from Cuba who tried to make the major-league leap.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audiencesend us your suggestion.

It's hard to know what to expect from a free agent from Cuba, but as we wait to see what Cespedes will be, we can take a look at how his countrymen fared courtesy of the John Perrotto article reproduced below, which originally ran on February 15, 2007.

Handicapping upcoming arbitration hearings with our own personal panel.

Love them or hate them, reality shows get big ratings and make lots of money for the television networks. With that in mind, and knowing how much Major League Baseball and its owners love to continually look for new revenue streams, we would like to propose a reality show for the MLB Network.

Tim Raines has his case re-examined, and the remainder of the Hall ballot gets a look.

We all have our pet projects. With the graduations of Bert Blyleven and Ron Santo to the Hall of Fame, mine is now Tim Raines. During his 23-year major-league career, Raines combined the virtues of a keen batting eye, dazzling speed, and all-around athleticism with a cerebral approach that made him an electrifying performer and a dangerous offensive weapon. Yet in four years on the ballot, he's reached just 37.5 percent of the vote, exactly half of what he needs to reach Cooperstown.

John runs down the top candidates for the next GM vacancy.

General managers are never more in the spotlight than they are this week in the days leading up to Sunday's deadline to makes trades without securing waivers on players. How well some of the GMs navigate these next three days could determine their future. Make the right move and get your team to the postseason, and it could result in a contract extension. Fail to improve your club and finish out of the money, and you could be out of a job.
