Report: Padres, Rays talking Wil Myers trade

The San Diego Padres have made a significant splash this winter in acquiring Matt Kemp from the Dodgers, and they’ve sniffed around some other bats (Yasmany Tomas, Justin Upton, Pablo Sandova) as well.

What To Make Of Tampa Bay’s Crowded Outfield

We’ve reached the month of December, and the Tampa Bay Rays overpopulated outfield has not yet been trifled with.
