    The Stanton deal is huge. But don’t listen to those who claim it is insane.

    The once-excellent closer has been completely ineffective for years now. Someone will still likely invite him to spring training, however.

  3. Doc Gooden: “I never thought I would make it to 50″

    Neither did we, Doc. But we’re glad you did.

    As a ballpark, the cold and drafty Candlestick Park will make for a nice retail center.

    Yeah, I’ll believe it when I see it. And even then I may not believe it for a little bit.

  7. A guy you never heard of got the Giancarlo Stanton contract details before anyone

    Which is kind of neat, even if it reminds us how weird scoops are.

  8. Tony Bosch said Scott Boras suggested a Manny Ramirez PED coverup. Boras adamantly denies it

    Kansas City Royals v Houston Astros

    Personally, I tend to take sides of the people who aren’t admitted drug dealers.

  9. MLB declares Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada a free agent

  10. Terry Collins expects the Mets to make the playoffs in 2015

    Nov 15, 2014, 10:45 AM EST

    Terry Collins

    For the first time in a long time the Mets are talking about winning. Not just talking about thinking about winning.

  11. Confirmed PED-liar Andy Pettitte tells A-Rod that he just needs to come clean

    Nov 15, 2014, 10:00 AM EST

    Andy Pettitte

    A man who lied about his PED use and then, later, admitted to only what he had been caught red-handed doing says that A-Rod needs to “just get everything out.”

  12. Four NPB pitchers combine to no-hit the MLBers in the Japan Series

    Nov 15, 2014, 7:38 AM EST

    Japan Series

    One of them was this fellow, Kazuhisa Makita. Who I suspect may be a bit of a submarine pitcher.

    Fifteen pounds of muscle for the once and possibly future Mets closer.

    He managed both the Giants and the Athletics to the World Series.

  16. Scott Boras once again stumps for a neutral site World Series. Which is dumb.

    Scott Boras AP

    It’d be great for people who like big fancy corporate-sponsored parties. But beyond that it wouldn’t do much for baseball.

  17. The Phillies sign Jeff Francoeur, seven others to minor league deals
