    A long-overdue measure will, apparently, soon be in place.

  2. Every team and fan base thinks it’s “blue collar”

    Mar 31, 2015, 11:33 AM EDT

    Blue collar

    But most people can afford tickets or are paid to play the games are decidedly not blue collar.

  3. HBT Extra: Previewing the American League West

    Mar 31, 2015, 11:02 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Jenna and I talk about the Mariners’ dynamite pitching staff, Mike Trout’s need of some support and when the Astros will finally break into the picture.

  4. Domonic Brown will start the season on the disabled list

    Mar 31, 2015, 10:30 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    The Phillies outfield is gonna be a train wreck.

  5. The doomsday clock for the Rays leaving Tampa Bay moves up a couple of minutes

    Mar 31, 2015, 9:50 AM EDT

    Watchmen Clock

    There is still a lot of time before anything can happen, but it’s looking less and less likely that the Rays will stay in Tampa Bay.

  6. Fred Wilpon did not talk to the media yesterday and the media is quite perturbed at this

    Mar 31, 2015, 9:25 AM EDT

    Fred Wilpon

    Really, are there any Mets fans who actually care what Wilpon has to say at this point?

  7. The Collective Bargaining Agreement doesn’t even enter into the Kris Bryant situation, right?

    Mar 31, 2015, 7:49 AM EDT

    Kris Bryant

    Some people have argued that maybe a Kris Bryant/MLBPA lawsuit is not as silly as some of us think. I’m not sure I’m buying that.

  8. UPDATE: Drew Storen leaves game with blister on foot

    Mar 30, 2015, 6:02 PM EDT

    Drew Storen

    That Nationals don’t need another injury. But they may have one.

  9. The MLBPA releases a statement on Kris Bryant, mentions possible litigation

    Mar 30, 2015, 5:30 PM EDT

    Tony Clark

    I’d still be surprised if they went down that road — and I think it’s a bad road to go down — but Tony Clark is leaving the option on the table.

  10. In the wake of the Kris Bryant demotion, Scott Boras’ vocabulary has gone to 11

    Mar 30, 2015, 4:32 PM EDT

    Spinal Tap But it goes to eleven

    The Cubs are playing ersatz baseball, you see. And this is the, um, apogee of something.

  11. Kevin Correia released by the Mariners

    Mar 30, 2015, 2:33 PM EDT

    Kevin Correia

    He just signed on March 9, but after three awful appearances, the M’s have cut bait.

  12. The Cubs assign Kris Bryant and Addison Russell to the minors, option Javier Baez as well

    Mar 30, 2015, 1:07 PM EDT

    Kris Bryant

    Service time manipulation, the depth chart and hacktastic tendencies mean that the future is not quite here for three of the Cubs’ top prospects.

  13. It’s OK for ballplayers to be friendly with one another. Really.

    Mar 30, 2015, 12:30 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 12.11.07 PM

    Baseball technically has a rule against “fraternization.” It’s a dumb rule.

  14. MLB owns a stake in daily fantasy sports

    Mar 30, 2015, 11:35 AM EDT

    Money Bag

    Daily Fantasy Sports is not, legally speaking, gambling. But it is somewhat surprising to see Major League Baseball taking a stake in it.

  15. The New York press is getting desperate in their search for A-Rod intrigue

    Mar 30, 2015, 10:36 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez AP

    A-Rod’s worst offense yet: not giving the press anything to be offended about.

  16. Players are taking home a much smaller percentage of revenue than they used to

    Mar 30, 2015, 10:04 AM EDT

    Tony Clark

    What, if anything, will Tony Clark and the MLBPA do about it?

  17. Vazquez insurance: The Red Sox acquire catcher Sandy Leon from the Nationals

    Mar 30, 2015, 9:00 AM EDT

    Sandy Leon

    Leon looks to have the inside track on the Sox’ backup catching gig.

  18. 2015 Preview: Toronto Blue Jays

    Mar 30, 2015, 8:33 AM EDT

    John Gibbons

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but the Blue Jays look like a club that’ll mash the hell out of the ball but have a hard time with run prevention.

  19. Is spring training “horribly, utterly broken?”

    Mar 30, 2015, 7:24 AM EDT

    Equipment Bags

    The first rule of solutions: make sure you’re employing them to address actual problems.

  20. Mariners pitcher David Rollins suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Mar 27, 2015, 4:13 PM EDT

    David Rollins

    The Rule 5 pick had a decent shot of making the Mariners’ pen out of camp.

  21. Did David Ortiz admit to more than he realized with his Players’ Tribune editorial?

    Mar 27, 2015, 2:01 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    There is only one reason a player should be tested for drugs as often as David Ortiz claims he has been: a previous positive test.

  22. Rob Manfred says it would be hard to reinstate Pete Rose in a limited way

    Mar 27, 2015, 9:39 AM EDT

    pete rose getty

    But it probably doesn’t matter because a reinstated Rose would be pretty limited to begin with.
