- MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo says Ceda resembles a young Lee Smith, and profiles as a future closer. Ken Rosenthal talked to an exec who drew an Armando Benitez comparison, in a good way.
- ESPN’s Keith Law calls the deal a "heist" for Florida.
- Paul Sullivan takes a look at Wood’s legacy in Chicago.
