- The St. Louis Cardinals and ace Jack Flaherty have not agreed to terms on a 2021 contract and they swapped figures for salary arbitration Friday.
How did the non-tender deadline change our list? Here's our look at everyone on the open market, from big-name stars to bargain options.

Boog Sciambi joins Buster to discuss to being named the new play-by-play voice of the Chicago Cubs, his run-in with Harry Caray in a restroom, the Padres looking like a superhero team-up and the slow winter market. Then Alden Gonzalez stops by to talk about when Spring Training may start, the arms race between the Padres and Dodgers and if Los Angeles will re-sign Corey Seager or Cody Bellinger.

This was a baseball season like no other. And here are the numbers that prove it.

From historic heists to modern blockbusters, we examine the reasons for the most memorable deals in baseball history.
With Major League Baseball reducing the number of affiliated farm teams, here's a look at where things stand.
Dick Kaegel, who covered the Cardinals and Royals and edited The Sporting News during a career of more than 53 years, has won the Hall of Fame's J.G. Taylor Spink Award.
Pitcher Adam Wainwright has won the Roberto Clemente Award, given annually by MLB for community involvement and philanthropy.
With baseball's offseason set to begin in earnest, we rank each club's roster and look at what work needs to be done.
Come for the trash talk, stay for the competition: Baseball players use fantasy obsession to help those in need.
Adam Wainwright, who has spent his entire 15-year MLB career with the Cardinals, is unsure of his future with the team entering free agency. "We just don't know what they're going to be offering -- or if they will offer," he said.
A three-time All-Star with the Astros, Springer is the top hitter on the market. Could he be coming to your team?
Heading into an unusual offseason, we look at the key action items for every team in MLB's senior circuit.
The biggest buzz this offseason surrounds the potential trade of Francisco Lindor. We break down every team's chances of adding the Indians superstar.
Lindy McDaniel, an All-Star reliever who appeared in nearly 1,000 major league games over 21 seasons, has died. He was 84.
The top honors for 2020 have just been handed out, but we're already looking ahead to next year's MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year races.
The NL Cy Young is also the top ace on the free-agent market. Here's where he could be taking his talents next.

Instead of judging a team's success -- or failure -- based on a shortened season, Sam Miller lists one positive memory each club can hold on to this winter.
The finale of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season goes up against the scandals, scapegoats, superstars and, yes, the Yankees of the past. Sam Miller judges every October since 1903.
Jesse Rogers joins Buster to discuss Justin Turner refusing to stay isolated during the postgame celebration, his take on the Blake Snell situation after covering the Rays during the World Series and free agency already looking ugly for the players (8:15). Then, Tim Kurkjian hops on to talk about the wackiest season ever, giving credit to the teams for adapting to an usual lifestyle while playing, their concern for the sport and if Turner will be suspended (22:33). Next, Hembo stops by to be the only person in civilization to defend Kevin Cash (35:14). And finally, Todd Radom administers the last quiz of the season (42:31).
St. Louis declined Kolten Wong's $12.5 million option for 2021, making the longtime Cardinals second baseman a free agent. The Cardinals will pay Wong a $1 million buyout.
Sure, the 2020 season just ended. No, we haven't a clue how the offseason will play out. We're ranking all 30 MLB teams for next year anyway.
