Lowdown: Frozen Trade Talks

Nick Doran gets you up to date on the holiday week's rumor mill, trade talks and free agent signings in Friday's Offseason Lowdown

It's time for the September rankings update. As always, players are ranked based on how I believe they'll perform in 5x5 scoring over the rest of the season. I try to list players at the positions at which they're most valuable, so if you can't find that second baseman you're looking for, check shortstop instead.
