How did Rockies fare at winter meetings?
The Rockies signed free-agent outfielder Ian Desmond to a five-year, $70 million contract and expect him to play first base. Did Colorado win the most at the winter meetings? Dan Szymborski breaks it down. Surplus values after winter meetings (Insider)
Buster Olney talks to Jayson Stark and Bob Nightengale about everything that went down at baseball's winter meetings. Plus, Alex Speier on Chris Sale, David Ortiz and the Red Sox.
The Oakland A's need to fill a void in center field, and could look at the surplus of outfielders in Colorado.
Agreeing to a deal with Ian Desmond does not mean the Rockies are out of the Mark Trumbo sweepstakes.
The Rockies and Blue Jays have reportedly discussed a trade centered around Toronto pitcher Marcus Stroman and Colorado outfielder Charlie Blackmon.
The Rockies had a hole at first base and were willing to spend to fill it, but nobody saw Ian Desmond-to-Colorado coming. What's the Rockies' plan?
There's little that makes sense about bringing Desmond to Denver. Colorado gave up a valuable draft pick for a player who doesn't fill a need.
Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer
Coors helps greatly alleviate concerns that Ian Desmond's 2016 fantasy numbers will regress, so while he was my No. 108 overall player and OF31 as a free agent, he's now my No. 60 overall and OF19 as a Rockie. Until the team makes other moves, though, I'd wonder: How high in the order does he hit? He might drop a few rankings spots if the Rockies are already done with their lineup.

Ian Desmond is expected to play 1B for the Rockies, a position he hasn't played in the minors or majors. He moved from SS to OF last season.
The Rockies have agreed to terms on a deal with free agent Ian Desmond, a source confirmed to ESPN's Jim Bowden.
The Red Sox appear to be out, while the Indians and Rockies are showing legitimate interest. Regardless, Edwin Encarnacion's market has slowed.
Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer
The best indication that Edwin Encarnacion isn't getting the offers he's looking for: Agent Paul Kinzer telling teams there's no hurry to get him signed. Indians, Rockies interested. But Red Sox appear "very unlikely."
There have reportedly been "preliminary talks" between the Rockies and White Sox regarding Chicago first baseman Jose Abreu.
