Fanrag: Alex Cobb Destinations

Gotsulias can tie him to three clubs.

Plenty of teams need a solid starter but won’t break the bank — Cobb fits the bill. He’s also younger than some of the other more expensive free agents such as Yu Darvish and Jake Arietta, which makes him an attractive target. MLB Trade Rumors sees Cobb getting a four-year deal worth $48M.

SF Chronicle: A’s Interest in Yelich, Ozuna

One item on Oakland’s wish list this winter is an outfielder with several years of team control remaining, sources told The Chronicle on Wednesday. And with Miami’s new ownership looking to shed payroll, the A’s have interest in Marcell Ozuna and, though their preference is for a right-handed hitter, possibly Christian Yelich.

Oakland will have money to spend after trading many of its higher-priced players in July. Plus, Billy Butler’s contract is now off the books. Though the A’s won’t entertain moving any of their core young major-leaguers, apart from designated hitter-corner infielder Ryon Healy, the team has compiled some good minor-league talent over the past several years and could be willing to part with some of it in exchange for a big bat.

Sun-Sentinel: The Case for Trading Stanton

All the arguments for shopping Stanton in one place.

“Honestly, if you’re going to lose, lose a series, it’s whatever. I don’t really care,” Stanton said. “If it’s not enough to help win, then personal stuff [doesn’t matter]. I’ve had enough personal stuff. If we don’t win, it’s not that fun.”

It’s not hard to extrapolate that to the Marlins’ situation overall. Eight years into his career, Stanton has never played on a winning team. He’s had enough of the losing.

Of course, remember to be careful what you wish for.
