2012 ZiPS Projections - Toronto Blue Jays
  by Dan Szymborski
Is there any team more happy about baseball adding a second wildcard spot than the Toronto Blue Jays?

2012 ZiPS Projections - Tampa Bay Rays
  by Dan Szymborski
The Rays plan to win in 2012 the same way they usually do: pitching, defense, and catching just enough lightning in a bottle on offense around their core. The team is, at least by ZiPS, just behind the Red Sox for 3rd place, but the winter is over and given how relatively quiet the team has been ...MORE

Mariners - Acquired Montero
  by Ron J

Seattle Mariners acquire C Jesus Montero for P Michael Pineda and P Jose Campos

ZiPS projected Montero at .271/.333/.486 in Yankee Stadium. Good enough for a 112 OPS+. He’s going to a much tougher place to hit, so the raw stat line is not going to be nearly as pretty to get the same value. Let’s ...
