    The pitcher denies there were issues. But now he’s off to Boston, so I guess it doesn’t matter.

  2. So, apparently we’re sweating the Matt Kemp physical now

    And if it blows up, it could impact the Jimmy Rollins trade too.

    Right team, even if he picked the wrong position.

  5. The Wil Myers trade is “nearing the finish line”

    It appears as though it’ll only be a two-team trade, with Myers heading to San Diego.

  6. The United States will seek to normalize relations with Cuba

    Cuba

    Which could have some baseball implications

  7. No, it’s not crazy to pay a free agent for what you think he’ll do in the future. That’s the bleedin’ point.

    A columnist takes a strange approach to criticizing the Brandon McCarthy contract. And his reasoning for doing so is pretty clear.

    Seems like a bad idea. And that’s even if the field would even fit. Which it may not.

  9. Meanwhile, on Dan Shaughnessy’s Hall of Fame ballot

    Dec 17, 2014, 6:56 AM EST

    Tim Raines

    Tim Raines and Alan Trammell improved in the past year, apparently, returning to their 2012 quality. But some guys “just don’t look right.”

  10. It is perfectly clear that A-Rod is the Yankees’ DH. At best. So there will be no drama, right?

    Dec 16, 2014, 4:30 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    The Yankees have handled the A-Rod situation about as well as it could possibly be handled. Will the media recognize that, or will it try to create some “A-Rod circus!” storyline?

    The Rays’ young relief ace will start the season on the DL.

  12. White Sox GM says Melky did the time for his crime, so lay off

    Dec 16, 2014, 2:05 PM EST

    Melky Cabrera

    The guys who stake their jobs on players like Melky Cabrera are way less worried about them than are the guys who merely write about them.

  13. The White Sox sign Brad Penny to a minor league deal

    Dec 16, 2014, 1:14 PM EST

    Brad Penny

    In other news, Brad Penny is still kicking around.

  14. Charlie Manuel might become the Orioles hitting coach after all

    Dec 16, 2014, 11:03 AM EST

  15. The seats at Great American Ballpark are falling apart, but ex-inmates are fixing them

    The key part: they’re saying they’re going to preserve the field.

  18. The Marlins are close to signing Mike Morse

    Dec 16, 2014, 8:16 AM EST

    It doesn’t have to be kitschy or retro. But the Padres need to embrace their identity.
