Here are your morning MLB Leftovers -- lots of good stuff coming in and you can tell we're almost to the hot stove. Now's the time to get excited!

No multi-year deal for Melky in the works -
"General manager Dayton Moore was very pleased about center fielder Melky Cabrera's bounceback season but doesn't see a long-term deal coming out of it immediately." <-- To understand this, you have to see what GMDM has already done with Franceour's extention and know has prospects still knocking on the door.

"The Nationals are expected to retain Davey Johnson as their manager, according to a baseball source. An announcement would be made after the World Series ends."
