Links for Saturday...
- ESPN.com's Buster Olney breaks down the 2009 Royals and considers them an improvement over last year's team.
- According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Brendan Ryan is not yet out of options because of the time he spent on the DL back in 2006.
- Yahoo's Tim Brown writes that the Nationals lack stability. He wonders "if the organization really is getting anywhere."
- Chico Harlan of the Washington Post heard that Ryan Zimmerman thinks the time is right for a long-term deal with the Nats, despite the weakened market and his 2008 injuries.
- Wallace Matthews of Newsday thinks Hank Steinbrenner should have let Alex Rodriguez sign elsewhere after 2007 because the slugger's become a "toxic mortgage" to the team. Say what you will about A-Rod, it's hard to match his production.
- The Tigers don't have the organizational depth they did when they dealt for Miguel Cabrera, but FanGraphs examines what's left in the minors.
