A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR this past week:
- Ben Nicholson-Smith detailed the scenarios in which the Nationals and Adam LaRoche can remain together in 2013.
- Mike Axisa examined the future payroll obligations of the Red Sox in the wake of their historic nine-player trade with the Dodgers.
- Ben suggested Dexter Fowler is a candidate for a contract extension from the Rockies.
- Ben hosted the weekly live chat.
- Mark Polishuk continued the Free Agent Stock Watch series with a look at the prospects of David Ortiz.
- Ben asked MLBTR readers which American League GM made the best moves this past offseason. Nearly 34% of you gave Billy Beane his due, as his A's are leading the AL Wild Card race.
- Ben reviewed the moves Beane made this past winter when he acquired one-third of the team’s starting lineup, its setup man, and two-fifths of its starting rotation.
- Mike gathered the best the baseball corner of the web had to offer in Baseball Blogs Weigh In. This week's edition featured posts on the Dodgers, Red Sox, and Yankees.
- Ben updated the list of players who have been placed on revocable waivers one final time before the August 31st deadline for teams to trade for players and be eligible for postseason rosters.
- Trades can still be completed this month, however. Mike chronicled some of the more noteworthy deals from Septembers past.
