  1. Restoring the rosters: No. 6 – Montreal/Washington

    Sep 3, 2009, 5:43 PM EDT

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  2. What we're watching: Lincecum vs. Pedro

    Sep 3, 2009, 4:45 PM EDT

    - The Red Sox and Rays will finish off their three-game series with young guns Clay Buchholz and David Price on the mound. Buchholz took a shutout into the ninth and struck out nine in a win over the Blue Jays last time out. Price is also coming off one of his best starts of…

  3. Classic moments in BBWAA buffoonery: Take 1

    Sep 3, 2009, 4:13 PM EDT

    Since it seems we’re all set up for at least one and and maybe two potentially lousy choices in AL award balloting, I thought it’d be fun to look at some historical low points. I’ll take suggestions for future episodes — I could probably do a week’s worth of blogs on 1987 alone — but…

  4. Schilling considers bid for Kennedy's Senate seat

    Sep 2, 2009, 5:18 PM EDT

    It’s a long shot, but that won’t stop all of the fun specuation. Retired 200-game winner Curt Schilling on Wednesday told NECN that he hadn’t ruled out running for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy. The AP story can be found here.

  5. Restoring the rosters: No. 7 – Colorado

  6. What we're watching: Beckett looks to bounce back

    Sep 2, 2009, 4:33 PM EDT

    - Brad Penny makes his first start for the Giants in a big game against Philadelphia. The Phillies won a sterling contest 1-0 last night, as Cole Hamels pitched a two-hit shutout to outduel Jonathan Sanchez. That allowed the Rockies to reclaim a one-game lead in the wild-card race. The Giants will likely need a…

  7. Giants add top prospect Posey to aid postseason push

    Sep 2, 2009, 4:03 PM EDT

    In a surprising turn of events, the Giants have opted to call up 2008 first-round pick Buster Posey to help out with Bengie Molina still struggling due to a strained right quad.   The Giants had indicated that Posey would finish the season in the minors and then get a break before taking part in…

  8. Notes from Tuesday's moves and callups

    Sep 1, 2009, 6:48 PM EDT

    - The White Sox brought up both Tyler Flowers and Josh Fields to help fill the void left by Jim Thome’s departure. Fields’ return was never in doubt, but he may not see as much playing time as expected if the White Sox want to see if Flowers is ready to hit in the majors.…

  9. What we're watching: Hudson returns against Marlins

    Sep 1, 2009, 5:16 PM EDT

    - Fresh off a sweep of the Rockies to move into a tie for the wild card lead, the Giants will begin a three-game series in Philadelphia tonight. The opener will feature dueling left-handers in Jonathan Sanchez and Cole Hamels. Sanchez, who pitched poorly enough in the first half to be bounced from the rotation…

  10. Restoring the rosters: No. 8 – Boston

    Sep 1, 2009, 4:39 PM EDT

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  11. Arms race in NL West: Dodgers add Thome, Garland; Rockies get Contreras

    Sep 1, 2009, 1:19 AM EDT

    The Brad Penny pickup set off a chain reaction in the NL West, as the two remaining contenders also picked up pieces before the Monday night deadline to have new acquisitions qualify for postseason play. The Dodgers landed a potential Hall of Famer in Jim Thome, but right-hander Jon Garland may well prove to be…

  12. Restoring the rosters: No. 9 – Toronto

  13. Giants look to bolster rotation with Penny

    Aug 31, 2009, 4:49 PM EDT

    It’s worked out well for the Cardinals, so now the Giants will try to give their rotation a boost by picking up one of Boston’s castoffs. In this case, it’s Brad Penny, who went 7-8 with a 5.61 ERA in his first and possibly last stint in the American League. Penny’s lack of success wasn’t…

  14. What we're watching: Kawakami vs. Johnson

    Aug 31, 2009, 4:31 PM EDT

    - Tim Hudson versus Josh Johnson would have been tonight’s premier matchup, but the Braves have pushed Hudson back and opted to go with Kenshin Kawakami instead. Kawakami has lost both of his starts against the Marlins this season, amassing an 8.44 ERA in 10 2/3 innings. The last loss was in a matchup against…

  18. What we're watching: Hanson vs. Pedro

    Aug 28, 2009, 4:55 PM EDT

    - The Braves got a much-needed win Thursday to avoid a home sweep at the hands of the Padres. Now they could really use two out of three games this weekend in Philadelphia. They’ll try to start the series right with Tommy Hanson on the mound against Pedro Martinez. Hanson, who will be facing the…

  19. Report: Kazmir will go to Angels in waiver deal

    Aug 28, 2009, 4:33 PM EDT

    A deal rumored in July was surprisingly near completion Friday, as the Angels reportedly acquired Scott Kazmir from the Rays for prospects Alex Torres and Matt Sweeney. As a 25-year-old lefty with a 55-44 record, a 3.92 ERA and 874 strikeouts in 834 innings, Kazmir hardly seemed to be a likely candidate to be part…

  20. Yankee greed costs Carter his best shot

    Aug 27, 2009, 11:29 PM EDT

    For no other reason than to tweak their two biggest rivals, the Yankees stepped in Thursday and claimed Boston’s Chris Carter off waivers, preventing him from immediately becoming a Met as a player to be named in the Billy Wagner deal. In so doing, they kept the Mets from adding a legitimate bat to their…

  21. Nats lose Morgan to broken hand

    Aug 27, 2009, 6:34 PM EDT

    Well, that’s one of the risks that comes with stealing bases. Nyjer Morgan broke his left hand on a head-first slide on Thursday and will likely miss at least a month, if not the rest of the season. Morgan, who had excelled as the Nationals’ center fielder since coming over from the Pirates, was hurt…

  23. We're No.1 (or maybe No. 2)!

    Aug 27, 2009, 4:02 PM EDT

    This is very exciting news, though the results are far from official. As I’ve mentioned in this spot previously, I’m participating in Tom Tango’s Forecasters Challenge, which has 22 forecasters and projection systems playing out 1,000 runs of the season using teams of preranked players. I gave a rundown of what my teams looked like…

  24. What we're watching: Red Sox aim for sweep

    Aug 27, 2009, 3:27 PM EDT

    - After one minor league start, Vicente Padilla makes his Dodger debut tonight in Colorado. The 31-year-old right-hander went 8-6 with a 4.92 ERA for the Rangers before being released early this month. He’ll be facing off against the surging Jorge De La Rosa, who has gone 10-1 in his last 12 starts. De La…
