Here's a look back at the original content we published this week at MLBTR ...
- Mike Axisa took a look at the impending free agency of Rays first baseman Casey Kotchman.
- We're all about player movement here at MLBTR but Ben Nicholson-Smith ran down the five non-moves that shaped the 2011 season.
- Ben Nicholson-Smith spoke to Yankees scouting director and GM candidate Damon Oppenheimer.
- The Arbitration Eligibles series continued with posts on the Tigers, White Sox, Indians, and Twins.
- Twenty position players and ten starting pitchers face contractual options this winter and Tim Dierkes laid out his predictions for all of them.
- We collected the best baseball analysis from around the web in our weekly edition of Baseball Blogs Weigh In.
- Orioles slugger Luke Scott will probably be in line for another one-year, $6.4MM contract next season but Tim Dierkes says that the 33-year-old could be a non-tender candidate.
- Francisco Cordero's $12MM 2012 club option is very likely to be declined and Dan Mennella explained why that's the case.
- It's a safe bet that Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder will command the biggest contracts on the open market this winter. Plenty of clubs will be in the mix but there are 15 clubs that probably won't go after either slugger, says Ben Nicholson-Smith.
- If you missed our weekly chat, you can check out the transcript right here.
- On Monday, we ran down the top free agent at each position.
- Plenty of clubs fell short of expectations this season, but according to MLBTR readers the Twins were the biggest bust with nearly 23% of the vote. The White Sox finished in a close second with almost 18%.
- Heading into this offseason, it looks like the Braves will have a surplus of starting pitching to work with.
