A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR the last seven days:

  • MLBTR's 2013-2014 Offseason In Review series continued with Charlie Wilmoth's recap of the Indians and Reds, Jeff Todd's rundown of the Dodgers and Rockies, Mark Polishuk's assessment of the Rays, and Steve Adams' look at the Angels.
  • Tim Dierkes was the first to report Braves left-hander Mike Minor joined Jet Sports Management, which is headed by B.B. Abbott. Minor had been represented by Bo McKinnis.
  • Tim provided a scouting report on Odrisamer Despaigne after speaking with an international scouting official, who has seen the Cuban right-hander three or four times in person and has seen him dating back to 2010.
  • Speaking of Despaigne, Tim broke the news he swapped agents leaving Jaime Torres for Charisse Dash of DPX Sports.
  • Tim ranked agencies by total 2013 wins above replacement, 2013 WAR per player, and the number of four-win and three-win players.
  • Steve asked MLBTR readers how the Tigers should replace shortstop Jose Iglesias. You were fairly split between signing Stephen Drew (36%), making a trade before Opening Day (28%), and using in-house options (22.5%). 
  • Steve hosted this week's chat.
  • Zach Links compiled the latest edition of Baseball Blogs Weigh In.
