    It looks like it’s going to be an all-Los Angeles MVP party

  3. Cole Hamels “would love to be traded” this offseason

    Nov 13, 2014, 9:53 AM EST

    Could that make this man their left fielder? And if so, are there enough antacids in the world for me to endure it?

  5. “Keep in mind that all players are eligible for MVP, including pitchers and designated hitters”

    Nov 13, 2014, 8:57 AM EST

    Clayton Kershaw

    You may not agree that Kershaw is the NL MVP. But please, follow the rules and consider him.

  6. So Curt Schilling spent his evening arguing against the theory of evolution

    This, so far, is my favorite moment of the offseason.

  7. The defamation case against Roger Clemens is still going on

    Nov 12, 2014, 5:30 PM EST

    Today seven hours worth of Clemens’ deposition testimony was released. Spoiler: he still says he didn’t do PEDs.

  8. The Rays may soon be allowed to look for a new stadium site outside of St. Petersburg

  9. David Robertson wants “Jonathan Papelbon money”

    Nov 12, 2014, 1:30 PM EST

    That’s $50 million over four years to you and me.

  10. It’s “doubtful” that the Yankees will get Elvis Andrus

    Nov 12, 2014, 12:30 PM EST

    Elvis Andrus

    He costs a lot and has declined in performance of late. Not exactly the sort of guy you jump at.

    It’s the first step Major League Baseball is taking in the wake of last spring’s alarming number of pitcher injuries.

  12. The Red Sox met with Jon Lester’s agent for an “extended period of time”

    Nov 12, 2014, 11:03 AM EST

    Jon Lester

    It’s confusing to the kids when divorced parents date.

  13. Front office leadership grows more complicated. Especially the titles.

    Nov 12, 2014, 9:58 AM EST

    Epstein Hoyer

    But it’s for a good reason. Baseball has grown more complicated.

  14. Brian Cashman’s expectations for A-Rod: low. Which is pretty smart.

    Nov 12, 2014, 8:51 AM EST

    San Francisco Giants v New York Yankees

    He ain’t gonna be the Yankees starting third baseman, that’s for sure.

    They have 30 days to strike a deal with him.

  16. Curb Alert! The Orioles are shopping Ubaldo Jimenez

    Nov 12, 2014, 7:12 AM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

    A record store I liked back in college had something called “Mr. Free Box” sitting outside. It was where you could get the CD equivalent of Ubaldo Jimenez back in 1994.

  17. Nelson Cruz rejected a three-year offer from the Orioles

    Nov 11, 2014, 5:03 PM EST

    He’s thought of as a back-of-the-rotation starter or a long man.

  21. Some “meat on the bones” for speculation of baseball’s return to Montreal

    Nov 11, 2014, 11:03 AM EST


    It’s still a long shot that baseball will return permanently to Montreal. But some rich people are studying the idea. And that’s how, if something ever happens, it will start.
