  1. There were a record-setting 6,105 home runs in 2017, and the ones that came at the extremes were wild. From the hardest-hit homer to the longest to the slowest tater trot time, Statcast can share the year's most interesting dingers.
  2. To get this offseason rolling, we need a big, old-fashioned, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping trade. The deal would be one of those massive multi-team transactions involving a dozen players and giving fans something to dissect and second guess for the remainder of the offseason.
  3. Cue the frozen-pond music as the Peanuts cast skates, watch Kevin apply some aftershave and all aboard the Polar Express. It's that time of year when the world falls in love, when people shop for big deals, when we watch holiday movies and when we look for meaning in the new season.
  4. These pitchers saw balls fly off the bat that would be hits -- sometimes home runs -- in almost any circumstance. But whether because of a sensational defensive play, perfect positioning or even the ballpark itself, each turned into an out. As you enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend, here are some of the plays pitchers were most thankful for in 2017.
  5. When Greg Holland declined the 2018 player option in his contract last month, the 32-year-old veteran immediately became one of the more sought after relievers hitting the free-agent market this offseason.
  6. It was easy to overlook just how special Lou Whitaker really was during his playing days with the Tigers. How special was he? The more you look at the history of baseball, the more you understand how rare of a complete player he really was.
  7. When baseball players plan their offseason workouts, they don't usually involve shoveling dirt, lining fields and painting dugouts. But Mitch Haniger had something different in mind last week, and it landed the Mariners right fielder in Hilo, Hawaii, getting down and dirty with dozens of happy kids.
  8. Bakery makes special Cy cake for Scherzer
  9. Tigers ace Jack Morris recalls his adventures getting his team pizza after the team won the 1984 World Series.
  10. One of the best parts of free agency is watching the different strategies teams utilize. Some will pounce early, while others are willing to wait out the market.
  11. A late bloomer to superstardom, Jake Arrieta has hit free agency ahead of his age-32 season. His story has been well-chronicled -- a fringe pitcher who was nearly out of the game resurrected his career in Chicago -- and his next chapter is waiting to be written.
  12. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, who defected from Cuba to sign with the Phillies organization, and pitched briefly for Philadelphia at the Major League level in 2014, died Thursday in an automobile accident in his home country, the club confirmed. He was 34.
  13. A couple of players with big league experience have reached agreements with the Marlins on Minor League contracts with invitations to Spring Training.
  14. As you enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend, here are some of the least likely hits from the Major Leagues this year. From homers that rarely clear the wall to behemoths squibbing tappers through the defense, these hitters all had something to be thankful for in 2017.
  15. Over the years, we've seen plenty of big baseball deals made on Black Friday, including the Blue Jays acquiring Josh Donaldson from the A's in 2014 (he won American League MVP Award the next year), and the Red Sox getting Curt Schilling from the D-backs in 2003 before winning their first World Series in 86 years the next fall. With that in mind, here's a look at five Black Friday deals I'd like to see this year, listed in order of the likelihood of them happening, with the trade I deem most plausible at the top.
