  1. The Royals are considering an eight-man bullpen

    Theoretically you could have a 25-man bullpen. We’ll probably see it in practice by the mid-2020s.

  2. Of course you want a dress made out of used Mets baseballs. Who wouldn’t?

    Feb 19, 2015, 10:30 AM EDT

    Since they’re Mets’ baseballs, I presume they’re barely used at all, of course. Certainly not damaged in any appreciable way.

  3. Jay Z thought David Wells was Curt Schilling. Asked him about the bloody sock

    Maybe not great that a guy who runs a sports agency doesn’t know one ballplayer from another?

  4. The Diamondbacks are signing a billion dollar TV deal

    old TV

    Broadcast rights fees continue to explode

  5. Yankees fans: would you give up the 2009 title just to be rid of A-Rod?

    At least one columnist thinks that’d have been a good deal. What say you?

  6. An Indians minor leaguer was suspended for amphetamines

    On the first day of spring training, man. Talking about getting off on the wrong foot.

  7. Hiroki Kuroda says his years in the majors were “tougher than they were enjoyable”

    This describes any given seven-year stretch in most of our lives, though, right?

  8. Miguel Cabrera has been cleared for “limited baseball activity”

    Miguel Cabrera

    It’s still possible that the Tigers’ slugger will be ready for Opening Day.

  9. A scorching-hot A-Rod take reveals Mike Lupica’s ridiculousness, ignorance and simple cruelty

    Feb 18, 2015, 2:56 PM EDT

    Lupica

    I’d never expect a reasoned or measured response from Mike Lupica. But you’d think he’d at least aspire to basic human decency.

  10. Remembering the team owner who moved his team to get away from black people

    Feb 18, 2015, 1:44 PM EDT

    Calvin Griffith

    There are pieces of work. Then there was Calvin Griffith.

  11. Tim Lincecum is the Giants’ fifth starter

    Feb 18, 2015, 1:07 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    It was thought he’d compete for the fifth slot. Today Bruce Bochy made it sound like the job is his.

  12. Andy Pettitte: “I don’t really believe I tried to enhance my performance”

    This defense seems to work for Andy Pettitte when it does not work for any other PED guy.

  13. Wanna buy Gene Tenace’s six World Series rings?

  14. Must-click link: Alex Rodriguez: “the cheating stops now”

    That’s not about cheating in baseball. Not by damn sight.

    Many have already reported. Here are the deadlines for pitchers and catchers for all 30 teams.

  16. The Orioles are close to signing Everth Cabrera

    He’s no one you want for millions a year, but on a cheap deal on the eve of spring training? Not too shabby a pickup.

  17. Let’s pump the brakes on the Pablo Sandoval waistline watch, OK?

    Feb 18, 2015, 8:28 AM EDT

    Pablo Sandoval

    Is it possible Pablo Sandoval is out of shape? Sure. But maybe we should wait for the Red Sox to say so before slamming the guy.

  18. A-Rod derangement watch: handwriting analysis edition

    Feb 18, 2015, 6:47 AM EDT

    A newspaper which has won 34 Pulitzer Prizes turns to wholly discredited pseudoscience.

  19. Minor leaguers suing baseball over unfair labor practices get a small victory

    If you’re suing your employer, it’s better to be in California than Florida. Minor leaguers suing baseball get to sue their employer in California.
