Good morning folks! While I'm here on the east coast having a blast and building snowmen, baseball things are happening. What things, you might ask? These things:

  • Jay Yencich at U.S.S. Mariner discusses the new Baseball America top-10 prospect list for the Mariners.
  • Jay also analyzes an interview Andy McKay had and wonders what the state of the player development department is going forward.
  • Carlos Peguero has signed a minor league deal with the Cardinals.
  • Jeff Sullivan at Fangraphs tries to figure out why velocity is up in baseball.
  • Dave Cameron is confused by A.J. Preller's lack of activity in this offseason.
  • Aroldis Chapman will not be charged in his alleged domestic abuse case.
  • David Laurila talks to Billy Eppler, the reported runner-up for the M's GM job and the current GM of the Angels, about his time so far in his new organization.
  • The Mets made a huge splash, signing Yoenis Cespedes to a three-year contract with a one-year buy-out.
  • Dave Cameron notices a trend with the Mets most recent moves.
  • Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon hit a ridiculous shot at a Nuggets basketball game.
  • David Eckstein's name was apparently the password used to hack the Astros' system.
