  1. Restoring the rosters: No. 9 – Toronto

    Aug 31, 2009, 5:02 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. 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…

  3. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  15. The beatdown goes on: Ollie latest Met set for surgery

    Aug 26, 2009, 4:22 PM EDT

    The Mets announced Wednesday that Oliver Perez will undergo surgery for the sore right knee that has bothered him for most of the year, sidelining him for the duration of the season. He’ll become the 13th Met currently on the disabled list. Here’s a rundown of what those players are making: Johan Santana – $20…

  16. What we're watching: Wolf looks to quiet Rockies

    Aug 26, 2009, 3:59 PM EDT

    - Joe Saunders returns after missing just three turns with shoulder tightness that he said had been a factor since spring training. The Angels have been pretty aggressive in handling him even though they still have the game’s second-best record and his health could play a huge role in determining their fortunes in October. Before…

  17. Rough day for three potential free agents

    Aug 25, 2009, 6:14 PM EDT

    Along with the big Johan Santana and Billy Wagner news today, there were three lesser items that figure to negatively impact a few of this winter’s potential free agents. – Wanting to make room for Chris Davis, the Rangers placed Andruw Jones on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Jones’ OPS stood at…

  19. What we're watching: Streaking Rockies face Dodgers

    Aug 25, 2009, 4:21 PM EDT

    - Adam Wainwright can become the first National League to reach 15 wins, but to get there, he’ll have to outpitch Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, who is 12-7 with a 2.89 ERA that ranks seventh in the NL.  Wainwright is fifth at 2.61.  Oddly enough, Rodriguez is 3-7 against the Cardinals in his career, even…

  21. Johan joins the Mets' MASH unit due to sore elbow

    Aug 24, 2009, 4:51 PM EDT

    It simply had to happen. The Mets had already lost Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado and plenty of others. Now perhaps the most valuable player of all has gone down: Johan Santana has been scratched from his start Tuesday because of a sore elbow. According to manager Jerry Manuel after today’s loss,…

  22. What we're watching: Niemann vs. Halladay

    Aug 24, 2009, 4:17 PM EDT

    - Jeff Niemann could further his Rookie of the Year case by outdueling Roy Halladay as the Rays and Jays play tonight.  Niemann has already done it once this season by limiting Toronto to one run over 7 1/3 innings in a 4-1 victory on June 29.  Halladay is coming off his shortest start of…
