Johan versus Livan in Citi Field in a grudge match of sorts.

Unhappy chance puts me in New York now instead of Chicago tomorrow to see the Cubs' home opener, but the usual formula for what to do with lemons applies in the Empire State as much as the Land of Lincoln. Today's game in Flushing gave me a shot to see Citi Field for the first time, with a chance to see Johan Santana on the mound, Jim Riggleman steer a patchwork roster, and Jose Reyes play in his second game since his activation from the DL.

The best comments and observations from a year's worth of David Laurila's incomparable interviews.

For the third year running, I had the pleasure of authoring the Prospectus Q&A series here at BP, and I continue to hope that you, the reader, find it to be both informative and entertaining. We heard from a number of interesting people within the game in 2009, and from the insightful to the head-scratching to the sublime, here is a selection of what they had to say:

Interim no more, the Nats' skipper discusses the role of defense in pitching, Stephen Strasburg, and which losses eat at him the most.

When the word "interim" was removed from his title in November, many were surprised that the Nationals had kept Jim Riggleman on board as their manager. Promoted from his bench coach position when Manny Acta was fired in July, Riggleman is more old-school than his predecessor, and some felt that the franchise was in need of younger, more progressive leadership in its quest to become competitive in the NL East. It is not, however, fair to label the 57-year-old former skipper of the Padres, Cubs, and Mariners a dinosaur. Riggleman wasn't weaned on sabermetrics, but he does understand the importance of balancing statistical analysis with old-school sensibilities. Riggleman talked about his approach to the game, and the role he'll play in the Stephen Strasburg era in the nation's capital, during the Winter Meetings in Indianapolis.

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.

On the Beat: Weekend Wrapup

John Perrotto

Skipper shuffling, who's whammying who in the AL, what's brewing in Milwaukee for the offseason, and more.

Just two in-season managerial changes have been made this year in the major leagues. As a result, t will be interesting to see how many there will be once the season ends in two weeks. Of the two made during the season, one has been credited for making a major impact. and the other has restored some measure of respectability to a franchise that seemed headed towards challenging the big-league record 120 losses compiled by the 1962 Mets.

Wrigleyville woes, drama in Philly in the absence of stretch drama, taking it one day at a time in DC, plus news from around the game.

Though the Cubs are playing out the string in what has turned into a disappointing season, there is still intrigue surrounding a franchise that will now make it 101 consecutive seasons without a World Series title. That's because Tom Ricketts has agreed in principle to buy the Cubs and Wrigley Field from Sam Zell and the Tribune Company for $845 million.

Changing directions in Seattle, trying to find one in Washington and Pittsburgh, plus more news from around the majors.

Jack Zduriencik is the general manager of the Mariners but, first and foremost, he is a scout. He spent the first 25 years of his baseball career as a scout or scouting director, including a notably successful stint with the Brewers that helped transform the one-time laughingstock franchise into a contender. When the Brewers made their first playoff appearance in 26 years last season, they did so because of the contributions of many of Zduriencik's draft picks.

On the Beat: Buyers Rush Nearly Empty Shelves?

John Perrotto

With sellers heavily outnumbered, how can everyone get what they want at the deadline?

The grumbling among most general managers is that it is too hard to make a trade in the current climate. Just 15 days remain until the July 31 deadline for making trades without securing waivers on players. However, 18 of the 30 major league clubs are still within five games of a playoff spot as the teams begin returning to action from the All-Star break tonight. Just nine teams can be considered definite sellers with the deadline approaching, leaving 21 clubs either looking to buy or at least stand pat. Thus, it is truly a sellers' market.

ANAHEIM ANGELS Placed RHP Al Levine on the 15-day DL (shoulder tendinitis), retroactive to 6/27; recalled RHP John Lackey from Salt Lake. [6/28] I don't disagree with the idea of bringing up John Lackey to move into the rotation. Lackey is the organization's best upper-level prospect, and he's obviously ready to go.

Recalled RHP Matt Wise from Salt Lake; optioned RHP John Lackey to Salt Lake. [6/25]
