Transactions of the week
Two of the bigger free agents have signed.
Jack Collins heads to Toronto for 6 years and 138 million. Alex Williams goes to Boston for 8 years and 168 million. It's a good winter for people who can play third base.
Portland trades Hansel Wilson and Delvis Winchester to Bay Area for Brad LaRatta. Bay Area then trades Wilson to Detroit for Chris Mendez and Ryan Justice. Bay Area needed pitching depth, and was able to spin Brad LaRatta, a guy who may not have had a starting spot in their outfield, for 3 young arms.
Miami trades Kevin Ribaudo (#1 draft pick), Rich Almanzar, and Jim Payton to Portland for Jesse Paulino, Roman Matos, Peter Rabbit, and a player to be named later.
