"We're going to continue to focus on how we can continue to improve our roster," new Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said.

Cubs Land Jon Lester in Late-Night Strike, and Dreams of Contending Soar — SAN DIEGO -- Suddenly, in the middle of the night on the East Coast, construction on the Chicago Cubs' roster dramatically blew past the construction that is remodeling Wrigley Field. Ace free agent Jon Lester is a Cub. Your move, outfield bleachers in Wrigley Field.

Aggressive White Sox Swing for the Fences as San Diego Winter Meetings Heat Up — SAN DIEGO - You looked at the foundation pieces of the Chicago White Sox.

Early Signs Point to Winter Action Sparking Another Red Sox Resurrection — Stephan Savoia/Associated Press The smartest thing the Red Sox have done over the past few months is not sign Pablo Sandoval (though that was good).

Scott Miller's Starting 9: With Nelson Cruz, Mariners Can Win Now-and Later — Who knew it would start raining bats in Seattle? Robinson Cano last winter. Nelson Cruz this winter.

Weary Yankees Appear Ready to Give Alex Rodriguez a Most Unwelcome Return — Pass the mashed potatoes, please, while we count our blessings. Family? Definitely. Friends? Absolutely. Food on the table and a roof over our heads? You bet. Mom's homemade pumpkin pie? Yessir (with whipped cream, please). And then there are the Yankees. They're thankful for Giancarlo Stanton and his new record-smashing $325 million contract.

Sheriff Miller bows out with sharp words for dirty politics, unlimited spending, the GOP, the daily press and his opponent — Proprietor's note: To the surprise of many veteran political observers in Monterey County, sheriff's deputy Steve Bernal upset the incumbent, Sheriff Scott Miller, in the Nov. 4 election.
