GENY Mets takes a look at the very latest news on Yoenis Cespedes, who still is yet to sign as a free agent. Cardinal Red Baseball argues that the Redbirds would be best off trading with the Rockies for Carlos Gonzalez. As for the defending champions, Around the Horn Talk analyzes the Royals’ new approach to free agency and a couple of pitching targets.

2. Rosters rounding into shape. Cubs beat writer Carrie Muskat has quotes from manager Joe Maddon saying he doesn’t expect any more additions to the roster between now as the start of the season. Dodger Insider points out 11 of the 13 pitchers with starting experience on the Dodgers’ roster will be under 30 when Spring Training starts up next month. The lack of depth in the Yankee rotation and at a couple of key positions has I’m Not A Headline Guy… wishing for a safety net, while Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk sizes up the A’s new-look infield this season.

3. Projecting 2016. The Baseball Haven writes about the sky-high expectations in Chicago, with the Cubs projected to have another standout campaign.

As for Cincinnati, Queen City Beer League sees this as the first offseason domino to fall in the Reds’ rebuild.
