    Greg Walker, Jerry Reinsdorf

    Greg Walker stepped down as White Sox hitting coach as soon as the season ended and Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that he’ll soon interview for the same job with the Braves and Padres. Chicago has filled in most of the coaching staff around new manager Robin Ventura, but have yet to replace Walker…

    Pitching coach Don Cooper and first base coach Harold Baines are staying with the White Sox despite the manager switch from Ozzie Guillen to Robin Ventura and Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago reports that Joe McEwing and Mark Parent will soon join Ventura’s staff.

    Oct 10, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    mark-lowe-rangers

    Mark Lowe hasn’t pitched since September 21 because of a hamstring injury, being left off the Rangers’ roster for the ALDS and ALCS, but the right-hander is still trying to make his way back in case Texas reaches the World Series. Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports that Lowe threw off a…

  4. Zack Greinke just knows how to win … or something

    Oct 10, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    NLDS Diamondbacks Brewers Baseball

    Zack Greinke picked up the victory last night in Game 1 of the NLCS and in doing so became the first pitcher in more than a decade to be credited with a “win” in the postseason while allowing six or more runs. Orlando Hernandez of the Yankees was the last pitcher to receive the long…

  5. Francisco Rodriguez says “of course” he’d consider signing with Mets as a free agent

    Oct 10, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Francisco Rodriguez is on the verge of becoming a free agent and lots of non-Brewers media are covering the Brewers at this point, so naturally he was asked yesterday whether signing with the Mets is something he’d consider. “Of course,” Rodriguez told David Lennon of New York Newsday. “I don’t have no hard feelings for…

  6. Delmon Young is back on the Tigers’ playoff roster, replacing Magglio Ordonez

    Oct 10, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Delmon Young

    Delmon Young was removed from Detroit’s playoff roster after straining his oblique muscle in Game 5 of the ALDS, but Magglio Ordonez‘s fractured ankle and a lack of other outfield options has convinced the Tigers to re-add him to the ALCS roster. Young missed nearly a month with an oblique strain earlier this season and…

  7. More talk of the Marlins being interested in Carlos Zambrano

    Oct 10, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Atlanta Braves

    Connecting all the dots, Florida’s interest in Carlos Zambrano sounds pretty real. As soon as Ozzie Guillen became the Marlins’ manager last month there was speculation about him convincing the team to trade for his friend and last week El Nacional in Venezuela reported that Guillen has already reached out to Zambrano. And now Barry…

  9. Tigers set ALCS rotation: Verlander, Porcello, Fister, Scherzer

    Oct 7, 2011, 4:46 PM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    By defeating the Rays in four games the Rangers got a chance to set up their ALCS rotation in the same order as the ALDS, but the Tigers will juggle things a bit after needing five games to defeat the Yankees. Jim Leyland avoided using Justin Verlander as a reliever in Game 5, so he’ll…

  10. Rangers choose Derek Holland for Game 2 start in ALCS

    Oct 7, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Derek Holland

    Ron Washington waited to see who the Rangers would be playing in the ALCS before announcing their rotation, but it looks like the Tigers will be facing the same starters the Rays did. C.J. Wilson will start Game 1 for Texas, followed by fellow left-hander Derek Holland in Game 2. Washington hasn’t named his Game…

  11. Yankees have struggled in playoffs against non-Twins teams

    Oct 7, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    joe girardi and ron gardenhire

    I’m a Minnesotan and so it has seemed at times like the Yankees are unbeatable in the playoffs, but it turns out they haven’t been so good when they’re not beating up on the Twins. During the past 10 seasons the Yankees’ playoff record is 12-2 against the Twins and 26-34 against all other teams.…

    Oct 7, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova was pulled from last night’s game after two innings with tightness in his forearm and today the Yankees announced that he’s been diagnosed with a Grade 1 flexor strain. Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger reports that the Yankees expect the injury to “heal on its own this winter,” so there’s no…

  14. Phillies are only playoff team left with payroll over $110 million

    Oct 7, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Money Bag

    New York getting bounced from the playoffs last night means that of the 12 teams with payrolls above $100 million this season only the Phillies, Tigers, and Cardinals remain alive. And if the Phillies lose to the Cardinals tonight that would mean none of the nine highest-payroll teams advanced past the first round. Here are…

  15. Stat of the Day: Alex Rodriguez’s postseason production

    Oct 7, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Alex Avila

    Alex Rodriguez is getting a ton of criticism for his poor ALDS performance against the Tigers and the usual talk about how he isn’t “clutch” in the playoffs is once again very loud, so it’s worth noting how his career numbers in the postseason stack up to, say, Derek Jeter‘s career numbers in the postseason:…

  16. With contract up Brian Cashman wants to remain Yankees GM

    Oct 7, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    Brian Cashman’s contract ends later this month, but when asked last night about impending free agency he made it very clear that remaining the Yankees’ general manager is his preference, saying “that has not changed.” Cashman will surely get plenty of criticism following a first-round exit, particularly after he missed out on Cliff Lee during…

  17. Zack Greinke is available out of the Brewers’ bullpen tonight

    Oct 7, 2011, 11:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    In last night’s Tigers-Yankees game we saw both managers turn to top-of-the-rotation starters in relief roles and Zack Greinke may join the fun tonight. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that “Zack would be available and not just if [Yovani Gallardo] isn’t pitching well.” Greinke threw just 86 pitches in his Game…

  18. CC Sabathia side steps questions about contract opt out

    Oct 7, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    Within minutes of the Yankees’ season ending CC Sabathia was asked whether he planned to exercise the opt-out clause in his contract to become a free agent, but the left-hander told reporters that he wasn’t ready to think about it yet. “I can’t even wrap my head around that right now,” Sabathia said. “I’m just…

  19. Sandy Alomar Jr. never even heard from the White Sox

    Oct 7, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Sandy Alomar

    Sandy Alomar Jr. made no secret about his interest in the White Sox’s managerial opening, but the current Indians bench coach admitted yesterday that he never even heard from them. In a surprise move the White Sox hired Robin Ventura to replace Ozzie Guillen, so naturally Alomar told Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer…

  20. Jose Reyes on contract talks with Mets: “Everything is quiet”

    Oct 7, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Jose Rayes

    Last month there were reports that the Mets wanted a quick decision from Jose Reyes, but yesterday the free agent shortstop told Nick Klopsis of New York Newsday that the two sides haven’t even started contract talks. “They’ll probably start up within the next few days, but right now everything is quiet,” Reyes said, reiterating…

  21. Reds sending Aroldis Chapman to winter ball to work as a starter

    Oct 6, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Cincinnati Reds

    Aroldis Chapman has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen since debuting with Cincinnati in August of last season, but the Reds are now sending the flamethrowing left-hander to winter ball in order to build up arm strength to join the rotation next year. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Chapman will stretch out…

    Oct 6, 2011, 4:54 PM EDT

    robin ventura white sox

    Lots of names have been linked to the White Sox’s managerial opening since Ozzie Guillen went to the Marlins on September 28, but in the end the choice came out of nowhere. In a surprise move the White Sox announced that Robin Ventura will replace Guillen as their new manager. Ventura played 10 seasons for…

  25. Ozzie Guillen to keep most of Marlins’ coaching staff intact

    Oct 6, 2011, 1:33 PM EDT

    Former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen gestures as Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria listens during news conference in Miami

    Ozzie Guillen brought bench Joey Cora with him from the White Sox to the Marlins, but it looks like the rest of Florida’s coaching staff is going to remain mostly the same under the new manager. Last week the Marlins announced that hitting coach Eduardo Perez and pitching coach Randy St. Claire would be staying…
