    Aug 19, 2009, 4:04 PM EST

    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: Beckett aims for 15th victory

    Aug 18, 2009, 4:51 PM EST

    - Josh Beckett can become the first major leaguer to 15 wins this year by beating Toronto and Ricky Romero tonight. He’s gone at least seven innings in six straight starts, allowing nine runs in the process. His ERA, which stood at 7.22 at the end of April, is now 3.10, the sixth-best mark in…

  3. Royals hit new low; demote Gordon to Triple-A

    Aug 18, 2009, 4:21 PM EST

    In what looks like one of the most shameful service-time manipulations in baseball history, the Royals demoted Alex Gordon to Triple-A on Tuesday to make room for Kyle Farnsworth on the roster. Ready or not, Gordon, with just one season as pro under his belt, was rushed from Double-A to the majors to begin 2007.…

  5. Tigers get their bat, add Huff from Orioles

    Aug 17, 2009, 5:33 PM EST

    It was quite a surprise that the Tigers didn’t add any offense at all before the deadline, but they had the strategy right: acquire pitching then, because quality arms are less likely to slide during the waiver process, and pick up some offensive help in August. On Monday, they got Aubrey Huff from the Orioles,…

  7. What we're watching: Carpenter vs. Haeger

    Aug 17, 2009, 4:11 PM EST

    - Francisco Liriano will attempt to build on a strong effort against the Royals when he faces the AL wild card-leading Rangers in Texas.  It will be his second start in Arlington in a month, as he allowed three runs — two earned — in six innings in a no-decision on July 19.  The Rangers…

  9. What we're watching: Kershaw to duel Haren

    Aug 14, 2009, 6:05 PM EST

    - The pitching matchup of the night pits Clayton Kershaw against Dan Haren as the Dodgers take on the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Kershaw currently ranks seventh in the NL in ERA, two spots behind Haren. The two are going in opposite directions, though. Kershaw has a 1.55 ERA since the beginning of June and a…

  10. Glass to take interest in $100 million investment

    Aug 14, 2009, 5:44 PM EST

    9 1/2 years after spending $96 million to buy the Royals, David Glass has decided to check out first-hand just what is wrong with his team. Reports The Associated Press: Glass said Friday that he plans to clear his schedule to attend more games and see why the Kansas City Royals are having one of…

  12. Nuts! Mariners' Beltre shelved due to testicle injury

    Aug 13, 2009, 7:53 PM EST

    The Mariners revealed Thursday that Adrian Beltre could be lost for the rest of the season with a damaged testicle, the result of a bad-hop grounder during Wednesday’s game. Beltre, who does not wear a cup, suffered tearing of the testicle and apparently some internal bleeding. Surgery would cost him a month and perhaps end…

  14. What we're watching: Pedro's Philly debut

    Aug 12, 2009, 5:10 PM EST

    - Hopefully, Tuesday’s incident took care of the bad blood between the Tigers and Red Sox, but with noted hothead Josh Beckett on the mound tonight, another flareup is a possibility. Kevin Youkilis, who charged the mound after being hit in a second straight game last night, chose not to appeal his five-game suspension, so…

  16. Golden Baseball League stats

    Aug 11, 2009, 5:54 PM EST

    Aaron’s mention of Scott Spiezio signing to play in the Golden Baseball League got me curious, so here’s a look at the stats of the notable and semi-notable players participating in the league this year. Walter Young – .329/.394/.482, 3 HR, 8 RBI, 15/5 K/BB, 0 SB in 85 AB Hulking first baseman got a…

  17. What we're watching: Nats go for ninth straight win

    Aug 11, 2009, 4:54 PM EST

    - Junichi Tazawa will make his first major league start in front of a home crowd at Fenway as the Red Sox play the Tigers tonight. Fortunately, Boston was able to halt its six-game losing streak last night, taking some of the pressure off the 23-year-old import. The Tigers will also be starting a rookie…

  19. Jays give away Rios, White Sox take advantage

    Aug 10, 2009, 7:03 PM EST

    <a href=”http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/32364650/ns/sports-player_news/”>Score another one for Kenny Williams</a>.  It almost never happens that players as talented Alex Rios can be acquired without surrendering anything in return.  The White Sox didn’t even have to outbid 29 teams or surrender a draft pick.  In Rios, they brought in a player who is about to start getting expensive, but…

  21. What we're watching: Can Tigers add to Boston's misery?

    Aug 10, 2009, 4:17 PM EST

    - Finally back home, if only briefly, after losing six in a row at Tampa Bay and New York, the Red Sox will face the Tigers to start a four-game series tonight. The opener, though, looks like the toughest matchup of the series for Boston, as Edwin Jackson and the struggling Brad Penny are due…

  22. Now you're just making stuff up, Kenny

    Aug 10, 2009, 4:34 AM EST

    FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal thinks the Jays should let Alex Rios depart on waivers, deleting his contract while getting nothing in return. It’s an arguable position, except that Rosenthal doesn’t put forth much of an argument. Instead, he starts off with this: The “trade” would not be Rios for whatever meager package the White Sox might…

  23. Yankee drubbing ends Smoltz's Boston tenure

    Aug 7, 2009, 5:29 PM EST

    And I still think he has something left. The Red Sox, though, decided it was no longer in their best interests to wait and see if Smoltz could turn it around. It’s hard to argue with an 8.32 ERA, and his outing last night against the Yankees was truly awful after a decent first two…

  24. What we're watching: Lincecum aims for 13th win, 200 Ks

    Aug 7, 2009, 4:52 PM EST

    - Matt Cain and Jason Marquis have both failed twice and Johan Santana and Adam Wainwright once apiece, so now Tim Lincecum will have a shot at becoming the first NL pitcher to reach 13 victories.  He’ll be facing the Reds for the first time in 80 career starts.  I’m not positive about this, but…
