Award week is over, and things are about to heating up in free agency over the next couple of weeks.
- Melky Cabrera agreed to a 2 year $16 million deal with the Blue Jays. I had little hope that the Yankees would take a risk with him, but he was still a good match for the team. Now he’s playing against them, and the Blue Jays are looking more and more deadly. Their payroll isn’t getting any smaller at this point.
- Earlier, I wrote about how the MVP award is largely influenced by the voter’s audience. Beyond the Boxscore had their own debate about how advanced statistics should best be presented, and further pushed into broader audiences.
- It’s About The Money Stupid wraps up the Arizona Fall League numbers. There’s the good, there’s the bad, and then there’s Slade Heathcott who was unworldly. There’s a chance he wins the league’s MVP award.
