Pablo Sandoval has been quite the story throughout his time in San Francisco, from fluctuating weight and long hitting streaks (both good and bad) to his three-homer performance in Game 1 of the 2012 World Series vs. Detroit.

But with Sandoval being a free agent this winter, Wednesday's wild-card showdown with Pittsburgh could potentially be his last game in a Giants uniform. And there's reason to believe that Boston could make a big push for him this offseason.

D-Backs keeping same outfield in 2015?

Before Kevin Towers was dismissed as Arizona's general manager, he went on record saying that he hoped to add a high on-base percentage type of outfielder over the offseason.

Under new Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart, that apparently won't be the case.

Ron Roenicke is the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers, at least for now.

The Brewers were a first-place team for the first five months of the season before a 9-22 finish dropped them clear out of the playoffs. The seat under Roenicke would appear to be red hot, but his fate will not be decided until next week, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

It is a knee-jerk reaction to connect the New York Yankees to any high-priced free agent, but that may not necessarily be the case this winter.

The Baltimore Orioles have until 10 a.m. ET Thursday to finalize their roster for the American League Division Series against Detroit, but manager Buck Showalter indicated that he may make up his mind today, says Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com.

With Manny Machado out for the season following knee surgery and Chris Davis serving a suspension, the Orioles face a tough call at third base, where Ryan Flaherty, Kelly Johnson and Jimmy Paredes have split time over the last few weeks.

Is Jackson the M's future in CF?

Monday is a disappointing day for the Seattle Mariners, which on Sunday finished one-game short of a potential shot at their first playoff appearance in 13 seasons. As the team picks up the pieces in an otherwise uplifting and unexpected 87-win season and looks ahead to 2015, it will certainly look towards upgrades in the outfield.

Again, that was a weakness on this team in 2014, with Dustin Ackley in left, James Jones in center until the trade-deadline deal for Austin Jackson, and everyone from Michael Saunders and Endy Chavez to Stefen Romero in right. One player expected to stick around for at least another season is Jackson, who came at the expense of infield prospect Nick Franklin, and is arbitration eligible this winter. But is Jackson is Seattle's long-term plans?

Pitching a big concern for Giants?

Pitching is the primary reason the San Francisco Giants were able to rattle off World Series Championships in two of the last four years, and by pitching we mean all phases -- the starting staff, the setup men and a lock-down closer (first Brian Wilson, then Sergio Romo).

But with Tim Lincecum far from the dominant ace he once was, Matt Cain (elbow/ankle) out for the season and Tim Hudson (9-13) recording the first losing season of his long career, this is a Giants team that will enter Wednesday's wild-card game against Pittsburgh that will have to rely on a difference recipe to win ball games in October.

Will Cespedes end up in RF in 2015?

Yoenis Cespedes has one of the strongest outfield arms of anyone to have ever played the game. A bold statement? Perhaps. But it's one that's hard to argue against if you've seen throws like this one from June, when Cespedes's laser from left field beat a stunned Howie Kendrick to home plate.

Incredibly, though, in 275 career major league games Cespedes has yet to appear in right field, the position where most strong-armed sluggers call end up calling home. But, according to one story out of Boston, that's likely to change in 2015.

Is Ichiro ready to call it quits?

This morning my little nephew was wearing the same Seattle Mariners' Ichiro shirt that my son once wore years before, and it got me thinking about Ichiro, a player once regarded as one of the best in the game.

Is good 'ol Ichiro ready to hang 'em up? Has he played his last game? Or is the soon-to-be 41-year-old outfielder committed to playing in 2015? A story from over the weekend helped shed light on that.
