David Freese is a popular trade target, and the Nationals' rotation plans are still uncertain.

Angels in Talks to Acquire David Freese
The Rangers and Tigers may have already consummated the offseason’s biggest trade, but those fearing a drought between now and next month’s Winter Meetings might not need to worry too much. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Rangers’ division rivals in Anaheim are working on a swap of their own.

One Move: National League East

18

Craig Goldstein

A look at what the Braves can do to stay on top, and what their division rivals can do to improve in 2014.

This is the sixth and final installment in the One Move series. If you'd like to check out any of the previous editions in this series, you can find them here: AL East, NL West, AL Central, NL Central, AL West.

We wrap up the series with a look at each of the teams in the NL East. This was the most painful division for me, as I think most of the teams are where they are, with the Braves and Nationals at the top and the Mets and Marlins at the bottom, and the Phillies planted firmly in 2008. The only obvious move to me was the one suggested for the Nationals, so if you can come up with something better for any team involved, let us know in the comments. I thoroughly enjoyed the debate on the last article.

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.

The Pirates win their 81st game with 24 to spare.

The Tuesday Takeaway
It finally happened. For the first time since 1992, when this writer was two years old, the Pirates have won 81 games in a season, clinching at least a .500 winning percentage and setting their sights on a whole lot more.

Andrew McCutchen got the Bucs going with a solo home run off of Yovani Gallardo in the opening frame, but the Brewers countered with a pair of tallies against Gerrit Cole in the last of the first. McCutchen then teamed up with newcomers Justin Morneau and Marlon Byrd to draw the Pirates even in the top of the third. Three straight singles knotted the score at 2-2.
