On the Beat: Friday Update

John Perrotto

One writer's picks for the All-Star Game rosters, along with notes from around the major leagues.

The fan balloting ended at midnight and the managers, players, and coaches have also cast their votes. Thus, the only thing to do is wait it out until Sunday afternoon when Major League Baseball announces the roster for the All-Star Game, which will be played July 13 in Anaheim.

Ahead in the Count: The No Turnover Standings

26

Matt Swartz

What would happen if players had to stay with the teams who originally drafted or signed them as amateurs?

"Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify because the players are always changing, the team can move to another city, you're actually rooting for the clothes when you get right down to it. You know what I mean? You are standing and cheering and yelling for your clothes to beat the clothes from another city. Fans will be so in love with a player, but if he goes to another team, they boo him. This is the same human being in a different shirt! They hate him now! Boo! Different shirt!! Boo!"

Welcome to the odd fistful of clubs that has payrolls which fit in anyone's budget.

From high rollers to low-stakes players, you can find examples of both in the National League East. Continuing our look at the 2010 payroll forecasts (we’ve covered the NL Central and the AL Central), let’s take a look at the Phillies, Braves, Marlins, Mets, and Nationals.

Prospectus Today: NL Shopping Lists

25

Joe Sheehan

With the Winter Meetings about to begin, here's what to expect from every National League team.

I'm not going to be in Indianapolis-with Kevin, Will, John, and Christina on-site, think of my absence as the Secretary of Agriculture being assigned to skip the State of the Union, to assure continuity of government should disaster strike. That doesn't mean I'm not as geeked for the Winter Meetings as any fan is. I'm not sure we'll get much in the way of transaction action, but the anticipation of movement makes for a fun four days.

On the Beat: Pre-Winter Meetings Shopping Lists

John Perrotto

'Tis the season for who needs what at what price, and poor-mouthing high and low, as the industry heads for Indy.

INDIANAPOLIS-Since it's the time of year to make a list and check it twice, all 30 major-league general managers are in the spirit. Not the spirit of the holidays, but the spirit of baseball's annual Winter Meetings, which begin here Monday. As GMs begin to converge on Indy today, all of them have wish lists, some longer than others. In order to fill those lists, though, they might have to give something up in return. With that in mind, here is a look at where all 30 teams stand on the eve of the winter meetings:

On the Beat: Rust Belt Teams Rusted Out?

5

John Perrotto

Hue and cry in Pittsburgh and Cleveland risks overlooking the gains made to teams that needed change.

Contrary to popular opinion, the Pirates have not been rebuilding forever. It just seems that way. Since Sid Bream beat Barry Bonds' throw home to rally the Braves to a 3-2 victory in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game Seven of the 1992 National League Championship Series, the Pirates has been undergoing one rebuilding program after another.

With a Yankees/Dodgers tandem up top, it's as if we're back in the age of Casey and the O'Malleys all over again, but will trades shake up the rankings?

Baseball's rumor mill got an early kick-start last week when the San Diego Padres reached an agreement to trade ace right-hander Jake Peavy to the Chicago White Sox.

Each team's got a list and is checking it twice, but not everybody gets everything they want this time of year.

As has been well-documented, the free-agent market has been extremely slow to develop; to date only 11 of the 171 players who filed for free agency have signed contracts. There is no word yet if Donald Fehr has asked Congress for a bailout.

Every Given Sunday: One Man's Ballot

26

John Perrotto

One member's picks for the various BBWAA awards, friction in San Diego, and long schedules afford extra options in playoff rotations.

It will not be an easy task for the Baseball Writers Association of America, those who have been asked to select the American League's Most Valuable Player. Ballots filled out by the 28 voters (two in each city in the league) must be e-mailed back to the BBWAA headquarters by the time the postseason begins on Wednesday afternoon, and it is easy to picture a many of them mulling over their choices until the very last minute, because there is no easy choice.

Every Given Sunday: Winding Down

John Perrotto

Possible changes coming in the GM landscape, the Astros are irked, and Cubs players envy how the other half lives.

A few months ago, it appeared that there would be wholesale changes made among major league general managers in the offseason, but now that no longer seems to be such a certainty. One team that will definitely have a new GM in 2009 is the Phillies, as Pat Gillick has already announced that he is retiring at the end of the season. It is conceivable, though unlikely, that the Phillies could be the only team to change GMs.
