Another round of links as we head into the evening...
- Nationals team president Stan Kasten told Bill Ladson of MLB.com Saturday that he feels his organization is headed in the right direction. "I'm not happy about the season," said Kasten, "and it signifies a horrible year on the field, but it has not been a horrible year in terms of progress toward our goal." The Nats are hoping to find a veteran arm on the free agent market this winter.
- Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post Dispatch believes super agent Scott Boras will be able to convince a GM to "wildly overpay" Rick Ankiel in a new contract this winter. Boras is apparently trying to spin the outfielder as "a combination of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio,[and] Duke Snider."
- SI.com's Jon Heyman calls the Red Sox's acquisition of Victor Martinez "the best move any AL team made this summer." V-Mart is batting .335/.403/.505 since arriving in Boston and has 102 RBI on the year.
