Marlins News

Bronson Arroyo may have been taken off the market by the Washington Nationals, but the Marlins are still interested in such names as Tim Lincecum and Cliff Lee, among other veterans.

The changes made to the fences at Marlins Park will hopefully boost the offensive production of a Fish lineup which saw fairly significant differences in home-away splits last season.

Yoenis Cespedes has opted to stay with the Mets. How does that affect the race for the NL East crown in 2016?

Cespedes isn't the only offensive standout in the division, as Giancarlo Stanton and Bryce Harper will also lead their respective teams in what is shaping up to be a strong division this season.

Around the League

The Dodgers have had a relatively quiet off-season, apart from losing arguably their best pitcher last year, Zack Greinke. Their NL West rivals have all made major moves, but LA is still being dubbed the team to beat.

The Dodgers will need more from Yasiel Puig in 2016, though, if they want to make that prediction a reality.

The Cespedes deal was a compromise on both sides; the outfielder signed a shorter contract than he ideally wanted, and New York spent more money per year than they wanted.

The ball from the final out of the World Series went to Series MVP Salvador Perez, right? Wrong.
