Updated Free Agency Rankings. The best (Adrian Beltre) and worst (Derek Lowe) contracts of this offseason. (U.S.S. Mariner)

The Dodger Offseason: An Outsider’s Positive Review. Analysis by Mitchel Lichtman. "[Shawn Green] is barely an above average player anymore at either first or in the OF. He is only worth 3-4 mil per year. Didn’t the Dodgers save 6 or 8 mil by trading him and subsidizing his contract? That was a great move by Depo; he completely suckered the D-Backs. And they got a good prospect in Navarro to boot! Catching prospects who can hit are like gold, by the way." (Dodger Thoughts)

Rivals in Exile: Everybody Was Wrong. Ben Jacobs and Larry Mahnken on the Yankees' non-signing of Carlos Beltran. (The Hardball Times)

Prospectus Triple Play: Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers. "So, the Astros have lost the player who helped power them to the postseason last year. But even as the Astros suffer from the disappointment of Beltran's departure, and begin the search to replace his production, could it be that they'll be better off in the long term having him walk?" (Baseball Prospectus)
