Also Crawford is an immediate and substantial upgrade in LF defensively. From what I see here, LF defense is a growing area of concern.
Plus Wood is a youg controllable SP

For the sake of clarity, the others are Alexi Ogando and Craig Breslow.
So Wood and Crawford for Sandoval, Ogando and Breslow.

Dodgers GM Andrew Friedman calls you up and proposes a deal involving Alex Wood for Pablo Sandoval?, among others. But youhave to ttake back Carl Crawford. You in or out?

He is considered a bust because two of the other 44 players to defect from Cuba were immediate superstars, and he hasn't been one.

The chances Ortiz is on the Red Sox next year are somewhere in between 99% and 101%. And this decision will not be made by a hashtag. And Ramirez is probably only a hair less likely. He'll be in L more »

Hopefully they don't waste time trying to get Cashner or Ross. One guy never listed from Cleveland is Danny Salazar, who is not signed to a cheap extension like Carasco and Kluber, which does make h more »

There are a lot of late bloomer starting pitchers enjoying success around the majors. deGrom, Kluber, Carrasco, Mike Fiers, Collin McHugh. Probably a couple others. It's really tough to peg the ne more »

If I was to bet on it, my money would be on Swihart in Boston in 2016. Certainly he could switch positions. Another option might be LF, and hevpushes Hanley to 1b. That's looking at least ss lik more »
