    Jayson Werth

    He served his time and is trying to be a better citizen. But he still doesn’t think he endangered anyone by driving 105 m.p.h. on an urban freeway.

  5. I may need a disguise when I visit Giants camp this spring training

    Feb 20, 2015, 7:18 AM EDT

    Bruce Bochy

    If anyone needs me, I’ll be spending the second week of March getting my rear end kicked by this man, probably.

  6. Mike Scioscia says he’s leaning toward batting Mike Trout second

    Feb 19, 2015, 5:20 PM EDT

    A pretty SABR-savvy move for a manager not often lauded as SABR-savvy.

  7. Danny Espinosa’s mustache is in The Best Shape — no, not really. It’s hideous.

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

  13. 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.

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

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

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

    Feb 18, 2015, 2:56 PM EDT
