Free-Agent Spotlight: Curtis Granderson
There’s some decent power to be found on the free-agent market this winter, but only one player who has two 40-home run seasons in the last three.
That would be Curtis Granderson.
Granderson is among a class of power-hitting outfielders that includes Nelson Cruz and Carlos Beltran, and is something of a star attraction after having spent the last four seasons as a member of the New York Yankees.

State Attorney’s Glib Nature of Jameis Winston Press Conference Was All Wrong
This was uncomfortable. Embarrassingly so.
The gravity and seriousness normally associated with allegations of rape were apparently lost on Florida’s State Attorney, William Meggs, during his press conference Wednesday to announce that no charges would be filed against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston following accusations of sexual battery against the star quarterback.

Brian Wilson’s Dodgers Deal a Perfect Platform for Earning Big Closer’s Payday
It seemed possible that Brian Wilson would be able to find a job as a closer somewhere this winter. Notably, the Detroit News reported that the Tigers were heavily involved with Wilson before turning their attention (also their checkbook) to Joe Nathan.

Anthony Pettis Expected to Be Sidelined Six to Eight Months, Hopes for Nate Diaz
On the heels of an impressive victory to capture the UFC lightweight throne, current champion Anthony Pettis has come down with the injury bug, again.

Now, after securing a first-round submission to win the belt and with worthy contenders waiting in limbo, Pettis has once again hit the sidelines.
