  1. The Best and Worst Uniforms of All Time: The Milwaukee Brewers

    Nov 10, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    1982 Brewers

    The Best: The 70s and the early 80s were a disaster for so many teams, but man, I really like the old Harvey’s Wallbangers look. Lose the pullovers if you must — that’s what they do for throwback day now — and I suppose the powder blue is negotiable, but the Brewers without pinstripes, yellow…

  2. Adrian Gonzalez’s shoulder surgery may be more significant than initially believed

    Nov 10, 2010, 12:46 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    Adrian Gonzalez repeatedly making it clear that he has no plans to remain in San Diego long term could motivate the Padres to trade the All-Star first baseman with one season left on his contract and now Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that there’s some doubt about Gonzalez’s health status as well. Three weeks ago…

  3. Edgar Renteria: don’t give me a party, use the money to aid flood victims

    Nov 10, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Texas Rangers, Game 4

    Edgar Renteria just doin’ what Edgar Renteria does: World Series MVP Edgar Renteria has asked that a celebration in his honor be called off in his home country, with the money donated to Colombia flood victims . . . Renteria says there are “more important things back home” and it’s critical to tend to the…

  4. The Best and Worst Uniforms of All Time: The St. Louis Cardinals

    Nov 10, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Stan Musial

    The Best: The Cards’ uniforms are all about process of elimination: they adopted the two birds on the seesaw look in 1922, and it’s pretty choice. No design before that look or after it without the seesaw (and there were a few before it took firm hold) can qualify as the best.  They switched from…

  5. Rob Picciolo replaces Ron Roenicke as Angels’ bench coach

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    Rob Picciolo

    Normally bench coach news isn’t one of our focuses, but since Joe Maddon and Ron Roenicke both landed manager gigs after serving as Mike Scioscia’s right-hand man it seems worth noting that Rob Picciolo has been named the new Angels bench coach. Picciolo has served as the Angels’ “roving infield instructor” for the past five…

  6. The Mets want a manager in place by the end of the month

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Sandy Alderson

    As we mentioned this morning, the Mets will be on to their second round of managerial interviews shortly. Yesterday, Sandy Alderson said that he wants this wrapped up by the end of the month at the latest: “It would probably be helpful for us to have a manager by the end of the month,” the…

  7. Japanese reliever Hiroyuki Kobayashi eyeing move to MLB

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    hiroyuki-kobayashi-japan

    Japanese reliever Hiroyuki Kobayashi is reportedly looking to sign with an MLB team and because the 32-year-old right-hander is a free agent he won’t require a “posting fee” to negotiate with like starter Hisashi Iwakuma and infielder Tsuyoshi Nishioka. Formerly a starter, Kobayashi moved to the bullpen this season and saved 29 games with a…

  8. The Best and Worst Uniforms of All Time: The Cincinnati Reds

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Big Red Machine Reds

    The Best: When I did this a couple of years ago I decided that the classic 70s and 80s uniforms were tops just because so much good baseball was played in them. I’ve changed my mind on this. While a team having its glory years in a given uniform is a plus in its column,…

  9. Braves sign independent league standout Beau Torbert

    Nov 10, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    beau torbert braves

    Beau Torbert spent four seasons playing in Houston’s farm system after the Astros made him their 17th-round pick in 2004, but the 6-foot-4 outfielder hit just .250 with one homer and a .642 OPS in 93 games between Double-A and Triple-A in 2007 and was cut. Since then he’s been playing for the independent league…

  10. Dave Trembley lands a job with the Braves

    Nov 10, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    Dave Trembley 2

    I never worry about what Bobby Valentine or Joe Torre are going to be doing next season, but I always wonder what happens to the lower-profile baseball lifers when they lose a job.  I even kind of worry about them a little bit, as irrational as it sounds. Maybe I’m just projecting here — I’m…

  11. Minnesota woman charged with stealing Grady Sizemore’s nude pictures

    Nov 10, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    hacking for dummies

    Last offseason some not-safe-for-work pictures of Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore popped up on the internet, after which Sizemore’s lawyers sent cease-and-desist letters to various websites that posted them. Sizemore later apologized for the photos becoming public, saying that he meant for them to be seen only by his girlfriend, former Playboy centerfold Brittany Binger.…

  12. Charlie Samuels screwed up the Mets’ clubhouse

    Nov 10, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    Charlie Samuels

    More dirt from the increasingly fascinating case of Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels.  The Daily News reports that Samuels was essentially a clubhouse mole for the Wilpons for years, with both Willie Randolph and Jerry Manuel believing that he was reporting on them — and passing along players’ gripes — to the front office.  He…

  13. Camden Yards is getting a face lift

    Nov 10, 2010, 9:40 AM EDT

    Image (1) camden%20yards.jpg for post 5172

    Camden Yards — the flagship of the new era of ballparks — has been undergoing some minor renovations over the past couple of years. The team announced the latest round yesterday: At the request of the Orioles, the club level and upper deck at Camden Yards will be furnished with wider seats that will be…

  14. Report: The Yankees are flying to meet with Cliff Lee today

    Nov 10, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    Lee-cliff-101031

    Bear season began in Arkansas on Tuesday (really).  The Yankees are on their way down there, loaded for it according to MLB Trade Rumors: The Yankees are flying into Arkansas personally today to meet with Cliff Lee Good scoop by MLBTR.  It’s pretty obvious that the Yankees won’t be denied. Or if they are to…

  15. What they’re saying about Jeter’s Gold Glove

    Nov 10, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    Jeter error

    I haven’t seen an award decision that had such uniformity of negative opinion about it since Jethro Tull beat Metallica for Best Heavy Metal Performance Grammy in 1988. Or maybe it was Taste of Honey beating Elvis Costello for Best New Artist in 1978.  To be honest, we should probably rename the Gold Glove the…

  16. Jorge Posada to have knee surgery today

    Nov 10, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    posada

    The reason? Torn meniscus. Not a biggie, of course, but also not the sort of thing that will help him in his efforts to avoid being moved to the DH slot to make way for Jesus Montero. And it seems that, despite the efforts of some to set this up as a showdown, Posada is…

  17. The Mets are giving Wally Backman a second interview for some reason

    Nov 10, 2010, 6:22 AM EDT

    backman walking on field

    That’s what Steve Popper and Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record are reporting. And good for Backman, because it would seem that wowing ‘em in person is the only shot he has, what with his extraordinarily thin resume for the job. No, I’m not one of the Backman haters. I like a manager who’s fun.…

  18. Rumor: Phillies “could be interested” in Jason Varitek

    Nov 9, 2010, 9:31 PM EDT

    varitek

    A source tells Boston-based writer Maureen Mullen that the Phillies could be interested in signing Jason Varitek as a backup catcher to Carlos Ruiz. How seriously should we take this one? Hard to say. Unless the Phillies find a taker for Brian Schneider’s $1.5 million contract for next season, it doesn’t sound like a very…

  19. Laynce Nix declares free agency

    Nov 9, 2010, 8:20 PM EDT

    Laynce Nix

    Laynce Nix declared himself a free agent today after clearing waivers and refusing an outright assignment, according to the Reds’ official Twitter feed. Nix, who turned 30 last month, batted .291/.350/.455 with four home runs, 18 RBI and an 805 OPS over 165 at-bats this past season. He sprained his left ankle on August 23…

  20. Trevor Hoffman keeping his eye on the Diamondbacks

    Nov 9, 2010, 7:38 PM EDT

    Trevor Hoffman

    Just one day after we learned that Trevor Hoffman would return for another season if given a chance to close, the all-time saves leader tells Barry M. Bloom of MLB.com that he sees a potential fit with the Diamondbacks. The chances of Hoffman finding another closing gig are slim, but he isn’t completely off base.…
