The article presents information on developments related to baseball in the U.S. The best unsung trade of the winter meetings was the Chicago White Sox's acquiring super-utilityman man Rob Mackowiak from the Pittsburgh Pirates for lefthanded reliever Damaso Marte. The oddest move of the meetings was the Washington Nationals' acquiring second baseman Alfonso Soriano to play left field. Soriano has resisted moving to the outfield, yet the Nationals want him to do it in his free-agent year as he moves from an extreme hitters park in Texas to an extreme pitchers park in D.C.
