    There was only one Mr. Cub. And he was one of the greatest men in baseball history.

  2. I think we’re just about to the nadir off the offseason

    Ichiro Suzuki

    It has been long-rumored, now it appears to be happening.

    When you go by your first name only, you need very little introduction.

  6. Jesus Montero is in The Best Shape of His Life, Part II

    Seattle Mariners v Chicago Cubs

    It’s make or break time for the former top prospect. He’s at least trying to make it.

  7. James Shields would prefer to pitch on the west coast

    Jan 23, 2015, 9:30 AM EST

    James Shields

    I’d prefer to work on the west coast too, but that’s not how life is working out. Maybe it’ll work out better for Big Game James.

  8. David Price would consider a long-term extension from the Tigers

    The first half of this season will mean a lot to both the Tigers and David Price’s future with them.

  9. The 2015 Braves have “gravitas” and “veteran leadership” and will have dirty uniforms. Just kill me now.

    I’m sorry, Mr. Calcaterra. All the tests are back. There’s no delicate way to put this, so I’ll just say it. Your team has . . . gravitas.

    National League New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana during first inning action in Washington

    He’s not dead yet. Just mostly dead.

  13. The 17th greatest GM of all time was unemployed for a decade

    Jan 22, 2015, 1:00 PM EST

    Dan Duquette

    And sandwiched an awful lot of winning on either side of that time in the wilderness.

  14. The Padres are sniffing around James Shields

    Jan 22, 2015, 11:33 AM EST

    James Shields

    He’s still available, you guys.

    All Mets fans, on some level, are dead inside. But eventually all Mets fans will be literally dead. When that happens, we have the perfect gift for them.

    Jan 22, 2015, 9:50 AM EST

    If only there was a person whose job it was to provide leadership for a team and make sure the clubhouse doesn’t get out of control.

    Paging a Mr. Godwin. Godwin, please go to the nearest white courtesy phone.

  19. The Marlins have offered a one-year, $2 million deal to Ichiro

    Jan 21, 2015, 4:01 PM EST

    Seems like that’s about as much as Ichiro can expect at this point.
