  1. 2015 Preview: Baltimore Orioles

    Mar 17, 2015, 8:00 AM EDT

    Buck Showalter

    The Orioles lost two key players in Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis. But they’re getting three back, in whole or in part, who didn’t really contribute much last year. Is that enough for them to repeat?

  2. Of course you want to see Tommy Lasorda dancing to “Turn Down for What”

    Mar 16, 2015, 11:35 PM EDT

    Tommy Lasorda

    I think it’s just about the time for me to leave Arizona.

  3. The Phillies place Cliff Lee on the 60-day disabled list; will attempt rest/rehab

    This decision is, perhaps, the only possible way in which Lee’s career can continue. And even then, only for a short time.

  4. You need to read about Del Webb, the former Yankees owner

    Mar 16, 2015, 3:41 PM EDT

    Del Webb

    Both America and baseball were built on questionable fortunes, conflicts of interest and power plays. And Del Webb was better than anyone at that stuff.

  5. Red Sox starter Joe Kelly leaves game with apparent injury

    Mar 16, 2015, 2:51 PM EDT

    Joe Kelly

    He has been beaten up pretty badly this spring, and left today’s game abruptly.

  6. Pete Rose has applied for reinstatement; Rob Manfred is considering it

    Mar 16, 2015, 2:15 PM EDT

    Could the Hit King be back on Major League fields soon?

  7. A morning of champions at Royals Camp

    Mar 16, 2015, 1:45 PM EDT

    The Royals proudly, and justifiably, called themselves champions here in Surprise, Arizona this morning.

  8. My last day in Arizona will take me to visit the Kansas City Royals

    Mar 16, 2015, 9:20 AM EDT

    My previous two days in the desert took me to a couple of cool places.

  9. Drew Storen had surgery on his non-throwing hand

    Mar 13, 2015, 5:13 PM EDT

    Drew Storen

    He’s not going to miss much time, though.

  10. Zack Wheeler has elbow tenderness

    Mar 13, 2015, 4:53 PM EDT

    Zack Wheeler

    Which is not as sexy as you might think based on what it’s called.

  11. The Mets have settled the lawsuit brought by former vice president Leigh Castergine

    Mar 13, 2015, 3:47 PM EDT

    Jeff Wilpon photo

    And the public statement released seems to chide the Mets a bit.

  12. The Rockies just had a brilliant idea

    Mar 13, 2015, 3:16 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 12.08.26 PM

    Every day should be Prince Day.

  13. Joe Maddon on the Will Ferrell thing: “I thought it was brilliant”

    Mar 13, 2015, 2:27 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 11.25.55 AM

    He thinks yesterday’s fun — and other things like it — may keep baseball from dying, you guys.

  14. Dontrelle Willis has decided to retire

    Mar 13, 2015, 1:26 PM EDT

    D-Train’s latest comeback has ended. And it looks like the end of the line.

  15. Ned Colletti: not a fan of a Ned Colletti Twitter parody account

    Mar 13, 2015, 12:06 PM EDT

    Ned Colletti

    In other news, old Ned has a lot of time on his hands these days.

  16. The Padres are . . . relaxed

    Mar 13, 2015, 7:00 AM EDT

    Matt Kemp

    Chemistry doesn’t win ballgames. But it doesn’t hurt, and the Padres seem to have it in spades.

  17. R.A. Dickey stole Daniel Norris’ VW Van

    Mar 12, 2015, 3:50 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    Put an APB out for a grimacing man without an elbow ligament. Probably driving more slowly than most, but in crazy, unpredictable patterns.

  18. I get to see Will Ferrell play center field today and that’s OK

    Mar 12, 2015, 1:24 PM EDT

    Will Ferrell

    This is not really about baseball or Will Ferrell, really.

  19. Joe Maddon doesn’t want his players to “pimp” home runs

    Mar 12, 2015, 10:30 AM EDT

    Joe Maddon

    Even though, in the past, Maddon has defended his own players who have pimped home runs.

  20. Mets’ Josh Edgin weighing Tommy John surgery

    Mar 12, 2015, 10:00 AM EDT

    mets logo

    His ligament is not torn, but it is compromised.

  21. Maybe if everyone ignores A-Rod’s homer it didn’t happen?

    Mar 12, 2015, 9:37 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    If an A-Rod hit a home run and no one was there to tweet about it, would it still go over the fence?

  22. Peter Moylan to be a player-coach in the Braves minor league system

    Mar 12, 2015, 8:49 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    And he compares the team to an ex-girlfriend

  23. Your weekly “Barry Bonds with some cheesy rando” picture has arrived

    Mar 12, 2015, 7:00 AM EDT

    Barry Bonds Glass

    The Home Run King was party to some Bold Flavors last night.
