In 2016, MLB Trade Rumors featured articles from former MLB players Burke Badenhop, Ryan Spilborghs, and John Baker. We also had former Cubs executive Chuck Wasserstrom interview GMs and draft prospects, and former White Sox beat writer Brett Ballantini interview Rick Hahn and Dave Stewart. In 2017, we aim to continue bringing our readers diverse, original articles of this nature.
