Dugout Digest – opening moves

The Hot Stove is already smoking. Geovany Soto re-upped with the Rangers for one year. David DeJesus is staying with the Rays (writeup coming today). Lloyd McClendon is the new manager of the Mariners. Qualifying offers have been exercised. The finalists for MLB's awards were announced.

We also kept rolling out our offseason primers, looking at the Marlins, Phillies, Brewers, Rockies, and Mets. And hey, don't be so consumed with free agency: trades will happen too!

Enjoy your offseason, everyone.
