Don Draper sure loves their women. Take a look at all the women of his life, professional and otherwise.
If the Reds can meet their CAIRO projections and win 87 games, their window is officially open.
Looks like with the deep farm system, they’re sit up to contend for years to come.

#2 ranked by John Sickels,#1 by Keith Law. Color me impressed.
They need to win now while they have their current squad on the field and under contract.
82 wins sounds crazy right?
I love watching this team, especially with Hosmer on my fantasy keeper league. With a string of top B-rated prospects coming up, this team should be pretty good, very soon.
The Pirates have alot of top former prospects up in the bigs now, but with a few more, including Gerrit Cole, they’re looking to compete sooner than later.
Doesn’t look like they have all that depth in the higher levels of the minors.
Not very deep in terms of prospects, but there’s 4 or 5 guys that should get Astros fans excited.
Updated from my week 9 look at this.. how has the Niners defense and special teams rank against the rest of the league? We keep hearing that it’s been a major part of their success.

Amongst the possible additions, are some old timers like:
Luke Scott (ok, he’s not that old)
and at 1B, Derrek Lee.
How will the Rays replace the possible losses of Johnny Damon and Casey Kotchman?

How might the Dodgers go upon replacing the likes of Casey Blake, Aaron Miles, and Jamey Carroll? The answer is with one defensive minded second baseman, and a couple of utility guys, one named Hairston.
A year after the Giants win the WS, they’re looking to get back to contention. While they’re replacing their OF and SS positions, how might they go upon replacing the run production lost to FA?
How might the Pirates go about replacing the runs lost due to 4 position players leaving due to FA?
Over at Beyond the Boxscore, we asked the question, Why Kubel? Is Jason Kubel’s signing a wash, or an upgrade to Gerardo Parra in LF?
It’s been a month since Matt Schwab has last started and as he was placed on IR, Texans fans gasped, and probably wondered what was going to happen with their QB situation for the rest of the season. Matt Leinart started, briefly, and also got hurt. TJ Yates has stepped in and won 3 out of 3, not turning the ball over, while only completing 54.8% of his passes. Surely, it’s not his play that has been winning every game right?
When I was researching my All I Do Is Win - Ode to Time Tebow graphic, I noticed some similarities. It’s the Texans dominance in a few categories.
-#1 in AFC, Time of Possession
-#1 in AFC, Rushing First Downs and Rushing Attempts Per Game
-#1 in AFC, Team Takeaways
-#1 in AFC, Opponents Passer Rating and Completion %.
Once again, consider me impressed. Keep up the good work.
I said it, sign Prince Fielder and give the Phillies a run for their money in the NL East. Here’s how his addition, with others can improve their wRC (weighted runs created).

Is losing Pujols a deal breaker in terms of the Cardinals chance of repeating 2011 production? Turns out it’s not.

The signings of David DeJesus and Ian Stewart has helped fill the holes at 3B and OF, but how else can the Cubs replace run production lost to FA?
Excited about this whole Winter Meetings madness, lets take a look at what contracts have been the most valuable to their respective teams. Surprisingly, the $100M contract Pujols just fulfilled, was a deal in terms of the production they got of The Machine.
