  2. Fantasy ranking the rotations

    Feb 9, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    In light of Craig’s response to Buster Olney’s blog, I’ve thrown this together. It’s a ranking 1-30 of how the top six pitchers in each team’s rotation fare in my fantasy projections. This isn’t meant to be taken very seriously. For one thing, I’ve simply added up the totals, so the No. 6 starter is…

  3. Cardinals sign Schumaker to two-year deal

    Feb 8, 2010, 9:33 PM EDT

    The Cardinals signed second baseman Skip Schumaker to a two-year, $4.7 million contract on Monday, avoiding arbitration. It’s a modest surprise, given that the two sides had to close a wide gap for 2010. The Cardinals proposed a $1.45 million salary for Schumaker’s first year of arbitration, while Schumaker requiested $2.75 million, nearly twice as…

  12. Gregg a waste of money for Jays

    Feb 4, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Sometimes a team just wants a proven closer. It doesn’t matter if he’s any good or not; it’s just the safe play. If the proven closer fails, then it’s his fault. If the unproven closer fails, it’s management’s fault. The 2010 Blue Jays, a team destined to finish in fourth or fifth place, now have…

    Feb 1, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

  21. Mariners add Byrnes to outfield picture

    Jan 29, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    Outfielder Eric Byrnes is on his way to Seattle after signing a one-year deal Friday. Terms weren’t announced, but it’s certainly for the minimum, given that the Diamondbacks were on the hook for $11 million under the terms of the three-year, $30 million extension he signed in Aug. 2007. Since he came at such a…

  22. Setup man Brocail opts for retirement

    Jan 28, 2010, 6:36 PM EDT

    As expected, free agent Doug Brocail has chosen to retire, according to MLB.com’s Alyson Footer. Brocail, 42, was injured for much of 2009 and finished with a 4.58 ERA in 17 2/3 innings. He reemerged as a solid setup man during the latter part of the decade despite missing three entire seasons from 2001-03 when…

  23. Report: Royals interested in Bedard

    Jan 28, 2010, 6:27 PM EDT

    The Kansas City Star’s Sam Mellinger says the Royals are showing some interest in Erik Bedard, though he thinks it’s unlikely that they’ll sign him. Since he’s not yet able to throw for teams following shoulder surgery, the 30-year-old Bedard hasn’t found much of a market for his services. The oft-injured left-hander went 11-7 with…

  25. Edmonds should be threat to Hart, not Gomez

    Jan 28, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Never finding the kind of deal he wanted, even after he hit .256/.369/.568 in an 85-game stint with the Cubs, Jim Edmonds sat out last season. Now that his itch to play again outweighs his pride, he’s accepted a minor league contract in an attempt to make the Brewers. The initial thought will be that,…
