    Dec 22, 2014, 4:49 PM EST

    Randy Johnson Dbacks

    I got, like, 17 guys I’d put in. But I’ll pretend I can only pick ten.

  4. They’re playing a football game in Marlins Park

    Dec 22, 2014, 2:37 PM EST

    Houston Astros v Miami Marlins

    And it looks weird. But then again, everything looks weird there, doesn’t it?

  5. Doc Gooden: “Letter to my Younger Self”

    Dec 22, 2014, 2:08 PM EST

    Doc Gooden

    We could probably all write one of these. But ours would be a lot less useful to our younger selves than Doc Gooden’s is to his younger self.

    Who will tell us that they’re “takin’ it one game at a time” now?!

  9. Phil Hughes signs a three-year extension with the Twins

    Dec 22, 2014, 9:04 AM EST

    Understated, it is not.

  12. The Padres have talked to the Phillies about Cole Hamels

    Dec 21, 2014, 5:47 PM EST

    It makes a lot of sense. And now, it seems, the clubs themselves are starting to talk about it.

  13. Report: David Ross to sign with the Cubs

    Dec 19, 2014, 5:18 PM EST

    David Ross

    Jon Lester now has a personal catcher.

  14. More from the underbelly of the A-Rod Conspiracy Industrial Complex

    Dec 19, 2014, 4:47 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    All baseball moves the Yankees make must be construed as pro-A-Rod or anti-A-Rod. There are literally no other reasons the Yankees make baseball moves.

    Dec 19, 2014, 3:25 PM EST

    Minor League baseball

    Dec 19, 2014, 2:30 PM EST

    New York Mets

    It’s complicated. But you can bid on his deferred compensation, payable by the Mets.

  17. The Padres have given their fans something to talk about. Which is badly needed in San Diego.

    Dec 19, 2014, 1:30 PM EST

    A.J. Preller

    The Padres have made a flurry of moves in the past few days. It may help them win some more baseball games. But it will undeniably fire up a fan base that has had nothing to get excited about for years.

  18. Bud Selig to be named “Commissioner Emeritus”

    Dec 19, 2014, 1:00 PM EST

    Bud Selig

    Bud is still going to be CCd on all the imporant emails, it seems.

  19. UPDATE: Nope: David Ross is going to the Cubs.

    Dec 19, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

    David Ross

    One player the Padres did NOT get.

    Dec 19, 2014, 11:31 AM EST

    Cole+Hamels+Atlanta+Braves+v+Philadelphia+64GYsPWwfRzl

    File this under “wild speculation” but it makes all kinds of sense.
