As I’m sitting here putting together the offseason report card for the Chicago White Sox, I have MLB Network on the television just waiting for a “Breaking News” scroll across the bottom.

Mat Latos could be the steal of free agency

Mat Latos signing with the Chicago White Sox Tuesday will end one of two ways: his rough 2015 will carry over but ultimately not impact Chicago too much, at least financially. Or, his deal worth $3 million is going to become one of the most valuable free agent contracts in recent memory—if only for a season. Several clubs should have been in on Latos. He turned 28 in December...

Why Samardzija’s rumored contract is a problem for MLB

Nothing that Jeff Samardzija has done in his career as a starting pitcher would indicate that he’s worth a five-year deal worth somewhere between $80 million-$100 million.
