Put another way: The 2020 Phillies got about 3 WAR from players they "developed," a term we'll define to cover any player who originally lost his rookie status with the franchise. The 2020 White Sox got about 8 WAR from those players. Only seven wins separated the two teams' records in the condensed 2020 schedule.

Jeff Passan: As partial as I am to the Carter/Alomar/McGriff/Fernandez blockbuster trade in 1990, the only answer is the Texas Rangers signing Alex Rodriguez to a 10-year, $252 million deal at the 2000 meetings in Dallas. It's the single most consequential contract in sports history.Cleveland Indians Face Masks

Thankfully, my friend Max is a schoolteacher in South Florida, and he said he'd be happy to hustle over to the police department and request the documents. A few hours and 17 cellphone pics later, we had the full file -- and a story about Chapman allegedly firing a gun indoors that scuttled the Reds' trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, which wound up landing him with the Yankees, and eventually led to the first suspension under MLB's new domestic violence policy.Colorado Rockies Face Masks

Sánchez won a Gold Glove at second base with the Chicago White Sox in 2019. Still, he was cut by Chicago last offseason and spent much of this year with the San Francisco Giants, who released him in August. He re-signed with the White Sox before getting claimed off waivers by Baltimore in late October.

So we started hunting around and found what we thought might be a promising lead: police reports in the area near where Chapman lived. One problem: They needed to be picked up in person. And, well, Nashville isn't exactly driving distance to Miami.Texas Rangers Face Masks

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers hired Chris Young as executive vice president and general manager Friday, bringing the Major League Baseball executive home to work under president of baseball operations Jon Daniels, the club's GM since 2005.
