Insight: Nolasco isn't an ace but with such little talent in this year's free agent pool, he still got a big pay day. He'll get his 200 innings in Minnesota and has posted double-digit wins in six consecutive seasons.

Description: The market really seems to be opening up for Ricky Nolasco.
Insight: The former Marlins and Dodgers starter is being pursued by several teams including the Giants, Padres, Phillies and Twins. Nolasco isn't an ace but with such little talent in this year's free agent pool, he should get a big pay day. Fox's Ken Rosenthal reported a week ago that Nolasco has his sights set on a deal similar to the one Anibal Sanchez signed with Detroit last offseason (five years, $80 million).

Description: Ricky Nolasco's first career postseason start lasted all of 58 pitches.
Insight: It was a quick hook for the Dodgers righthander, who allowed three runs on three hits in just four innings of work. Don Mattingly was on the fence about handing Nolasco the ball for Game 4 and in hindsight, he probably should have gone with Zack Greinke. If the Dodgers lose again tonight in Game 5, their season will be over.
 
10/15/2013 5:20:00 PM
