MLB free agency, trade market to heat up soon — We pause now to consider an offseason that's about to get interesting. Check the calendar. Teams feel some urgency to get things done as the holidays approach and New Year's Day closes in. Happens every year around this time.

Jordan Zimmermann deal makes sense for Tigers — Only four pitchers in this offseason's free-agent marketplace qualify as elite starters. That's four guys who can reasonably be counted on to pitch 200 innings with an ERA of 3.00 or below. Zack Greinke and David Price head this class. No question about either of those guys.

Dodgers may not trade Yasiel Puig — We acknowledge that Yasiel Puig occasionally drives the Dodgers crazy. OK, maybe more than occasionally. He's not always -- let's phrase this delicately -- punctual. He's not always the hardest-working guy in the building, and there are days his attitude could use an adjustment.

Dave Roberts stands out with decency, smarts — The Los Angeles Dodgers intend to hire one of the nicest and most genuine men on the planet. As qualifications go for a job like this one, that's an excellent place to start. To know Dave Roberts is to like Dave Roberts.

The @Dodgers are hiring one of the most genuine men around. How's that for an endorsement of Dave Roberts? via @mlb

No award but Mike Trout's greatness undisputed — Mike Trout is the best baseball player on the planet. That's one of the things of which this season reminded us. Was he baseball's best player in 2015? No, probably not. Bryce Harper was plenty deserving of the Best Major Leaguer Award (and National League Most Valuable Player Award), and Josh Donaldson was a worthy American League MVP.

Fans win by seeing Harper, Donaldson play — To understand the greatness of Bryce Harper and Josh Donaldson, check out the players who finished just below them in the BBWAA Most Valuable Player balloting: Just behind Harper in the vote for National League MVP were the following: Paul Goldschmidt, Joey Votto, Anthony Rizzo and Andrew McCutchen.

MLB, FOX streaming deal a great thing for fans — Your ace is rolling into the middle innings, and you didn't make it to the ballpark, and you're still a half-hour from home. This day is for you, too. Baseball got more accessible for millions of fans on Thursday when Commissioner Rob Manfred announced a three-year deal with FOX Sports in which 15 teams will allow in-market streaming of games on phones, tablets and other devices.

Baseball fans had a great day on Thursday. Yep, in-market streaming is that important. via @mlb

Take 2: Indians 1 of 15 teams to have in market-streaming of games for 2016. Must subscribe to FOX broadcast.

Yankees building roster through young stars — DALLAS -- This was progress, real measurable progress. In the end, that's what the 2015 season represented to the Yankees on so many levels. It wasn't just that they returned to the postseason, although that's the ultimate measuring stick. It was how they got there that was so impressive.

5 teams that could trade for Aroldis — If the Reds wanted to add a touch of theatrics to this thing, they'd set up shop in the lobby of the Winter Meetings next month and ask teams hoping to trade for closer Aroldis Chapman to take a number. The Astros certainly would be there to grab one.

Mike Rizzo has built strong foundation for '16 — BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Once he was able to digest the whole disappointing season, Nationals general manager and president of baseball operations Mike Rizzo took a couple of deep breaths and arrived at two reasonable conclusions: * He's going to have a team good enough to win the World Series in 2016.
