Here's a look at the original reporting and analysis delivered by the MLBTR writing staff this week..
- Several contenders are already dealing with injuries in the bullpen and it seems likely that trade suitors will be checking in with the Padres on Huston Street, writes Dan Mennella.
- Dan checked in on the free agent stock of Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier.
- This week's edition of Baseball Blogs Weigh In includes pieces on Derek Jeter, Jason Bay, and the Rays.
- It's a Make Or Break Year for Blue Jays first baseman Adam Lind, writes Mark Polishuk.
- Nearly 62% of MLBTR readers don't think that Josh Hamilton will play for the Rangers in 2013.
- Delmon Young's representatives at Wasserman Media Group will seek a multi-year deal if he replicates his 2010 performance but he'll be limited to one-year offers if he doesn't perform. It's an important season for Young, Ben Nicholson-Smith writes.
- More than 9,000 of you weighed in on Mike's poll asking if the Phillies will sign Cole Hamels to an extension and the votes were just about split.
- Ben conducted MLBTR's weekly chat and you can check out the transcript right here.
- Mike writes that fair or not, the Yankees are going to have to give Robinson Cano a larger contract than what Ian Kinsler and Brandon Phillips received if they intend to keep him beyond next season.
- Ben wrapped up the Offseason In Review series with a look at the Indians.
- Want a rundown of all of MLBTR's regular features? We got you covered.
- Ben looked at recent extensions for pre-arbitration eligible players.
- Mike Pelfrey could be in for a big payday if he delivers in 2012, Mike writes.
- I asked MLBTR readers when they expect the Dodgers to start contending and most see next season being the turning point for Los Angeles.
