Here's a look back at some of the original content from the MLBTR team this past week:
- Tim Dierkes took a look at Josh Willingham's free agent stock and determined he could bring in something in the neighborhood of $16MM over two years.
- Ben Nicholson-Smith provided a free agent arbitration primer for our readers.
- Ben also provided a final update on this year's Rule 5 Draft picks.
- Ben looked at a pair of shortstops when he examined Marco Scutaro's 2012 option and finished his two-part look at Jose Reyes' September. He concluded the Red Sox will pick up Scutaro's option and that Reyes played well enough in his return from the disabled list to keep his hopes for $100MM alive.
- Following the Ozzie Guillen trade this week, Howard Megdal took a look at historical returns that teams have received for managers.
- Luke Adams looked at how the American League playoff teams acquired their starting pitchers and then did the same with the National League playoff teams.
- Ben looked at in-season trades made by this year's playoff teams.
- Tim continued his Arbitration Eligibles series with entries on the Phillies, Mets, Astros, and Pirates.
- Mike Axisa ran down some of the best content from around the blogosphere in this week's Baseball Blogs Weigh In.
- With several managerial decisions coming this offseason, Ben looked at 2011's group of first year managers.
- Tim had the reins for this week's MLBTR Chat.
- This year's Elias Rankings are available exclusively on MLBTR, courtesy of Eddie Bajek, who reverse-engineered the formula.
