A look back at the original reporting and analysis found on MLBTR the last seven days:
- There were five installments of MLBTR's 2013-14 Offseason in Review series this week: Braves and Phillies (by Jeff Todd), Athletics and Astros (by Steve Adams), and Blue Jays (by Mark Polishuk).
- Jeff asked MLBTR readers which recent extension given to an infielder with between 1-3 years of service time (Andrelton Simmons, Jason Kipnis, and Matt Carpenter) is the best value. You gave a slight nod to Simmons (39%) while the rest were evenly split between Kipnis (32%) and Carpenter (29%).
- MLBTR was the first to report Chris Archer, if he does not earn Super Two status, is guaranteed $20MM from his new contract extension.
- Tim Dierkes was the first to learn the Padres were nearing a deal with Cuban right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne.
- Tim was also first with right-hander Nick Struck signing a minor league deal with the Dodgers.
- Steve hosted the MLBTR live chat this week.
- Zach Links put together the best of the baseball blogosphere in Baseball Blogs Weigh In.
