The Today's Game committee got the Las Vegas edition of the winter meetings off to a festive start by electing both Harold Baines and Lee Smith to the Hall of Fame. The pair will join whomever makes it next month in Cooperstown next summer.
Cardinals acquisition Paul Goldschmidt says he's focused on playing for his new team and that free agency, which is looming in 2020, "won't be on my mind."
Before Wednesday's trade headlined by Paul Goldschmidt, the Arizona Diamondbacks and St. Louis Cardinals were relatively even on paper.
First baseman Paul Goldschmidt, a six-time All-Star who hit 209 home runs during his eight seasons with Arizona, is headed to St. Louis as part of a multiplayer trade.
The MVP-caliber hitter could provide St. Louis with the power it wanted to help end a three-year postseason drought.
Arizona added two players who should contribute in 2019, a solid prospect and a key draft pick in a trade that makes sense for both sides.

Something to keep in mind with Paul Goldschmidt's trade: Arizona's Chase Field had only the 11th-highest runs scored park factor, and the 20th-highest home runs factor, last season. The ballpark change isn't nearly as dramatic as it might've been pre-humidor.

Paul Goldschmidt has played basically a full season against the Dodgers. He's a .302/.376/.551 hitter in 562 career plate appearances against them, with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs. Now, with Goldschmidt reportedly going from the D-backs to the Cardinals, Dodgers will see him 12 fewer times in 2019.
With the winter meetings upcoming in Harper's hometown of Las Vegas, we look at the free-agent outfielder's quest for baseball's biggest contract.
Left-hander Chasen Shreve, who went 1-2 with a 3.07 ERA after the Cardinals acquired him in July, agreed to a one-year, $900,000 deal with St. Louis on Friday.
While this winter's crop searches for new homes, we look ahead to the big decisions that loom for some of the game's top stars -- Nolan Arenado, Chris Sale, Paul Goldschmidt and Gerrit Cole among them.
The Royals claimed Conner Greene off waivers from the St. Louis Cardinals and designated fellow right-hander Burch Smith for assignment on Monday.
GMs such as the Phillies' Matt Klentak have long action lists before next season. Can they deliver on their teams' needs?
Your favorite team probably isn't going to get Bryce Harper or Manny Machado. But another move -- maybe for a top pitcher -- could make all the difference this winter.
Want to make a hot-stove splash? Start with these bold trades and free-agent additions.
Milwaukee seems due for some regression, the Cubs don't figure to throw money at their problems and the Cardinals might be looking to add some star power.
Bryce? Manny? Both? ... Or steer clear. We examine how every team in baseball should approach a historic pair of free agents.
Before the season, we said winning the World Series isn't everything. Some teams proved that. Others, well, not so much.
