Rumor Roundup: Replacing the Departed

5

Daniel Rathman

The Pirates look for a lefty-hitting first baseman, and the Tigers talk to Brian Wilson.

Pirates seeking long-end platoon partner at first base
At the end of August, the Pirates obtained Justin Morneau from the Twins to bolster their offensive output at first base by providing a lefty-hitting complement to Gaby Sanchez. The one-plus month rental, at the cost of outfielder Alex Presley, went okay: Morneau posted a .370 on-base percentage in 92 September plate appearances, then batted .292 in the playoffs, though he did not hit a home run.

Fantasy Freestyle: The Fantasy Fallout of the Fielder-Kinsler Swap

Bret Sayre

Covering all the fantasy angles of a swap whose impact goes well beyond the two traded players.

The fantasy impact of the Prince Fielder-Ian Kinsler trade go well beyond the two players involved, so we’re going to tackle its effects one-by-one and with lots of arrows. Who doesn’t love arrows? Let’s start with the Rangers’ side:

Rumor Roundup: AL Rotation Rumblings

0

Daniel Rathman

A Tiger trade might make room in the rotation for Drew Smyly, and the A's try to bring back Bartolo Colon.

Tigers Open to Shuffling Rotation
Our fantasy writers pined throughout the 2013 season for Drew Smyly to find his way into the Tigers’ starting five. If general manager Dave Dombrowski is to be believed, they will get their wish next year.

One Move: American League Central

7

Ben Carsley

What should the Tigers do to stay on top, and what can their rivals do to catch them?

Our whirlwind tour of the “One Move” series continues with the AL Central: a division with three legitimate contenders and two teams better left playing for 2016.

Fortunately, that dichotomy provides us with ample opportunity to explore a wide variety of strategies. Some of these teams should spend now. Others should sell, sell, sell.

Rumor Roundup: Another Winter, Another Tigers Closer Search

1

Daniel Rathman

Joe Nathan could be a fit for the Tigers, Carlos Ruiz could be headed to Colorado, and Rafael Furcal might be a fit for the Mets.

Tigers Looking for an Experienced Closer
Dave Dombrowski’s seemingly eternal search for a ninth-inning force continues this offseason, as Joaquin Benoit ponders his future in free agency. The 36-year-old Benoit performed well during the final season of his three-year, $16.5 million contract, recording 24 saves in 26 regular-season chances while amassing a 2.01 ERA and 2.90 FIP. Benoit is “in the mix,” but Dombrowski has a host of choices in this winter’s free-agent crop.

No prior major-league managerial jobs, no coaching experience, no problem.

Early in the World Series, my girlfriend wondered aloud why FOX was showing so many reaction shots of the same St. Louis player. “Which player?”, I asked. “That one,” she answered, the next time the broadcast cut to the dugout camera. She meant Mike Matheny.

It was an understandable mistake. Matheny can pass for a player because he’s not that far removed from being one. His playing days were done after 2006, his age-35 season, and he’d been retired officially for only five seasons when he was hired to take over for Tony La Russa. Given 25 years and approximately 20,000 packs of cigarettes, a fresh-faced manager like Matheny could come to look like Jim Leyland. (Okay, maybe not Leyland, who looked like this at Matheny’s age.) But that’s a long way away, and Matheny doesn’t smoke.
