Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Tony La Russa has not yet made a decision on whether he’ll return as the Cardinals’ manager in 2011. According to Goold the Cardinals “made a formal offer last week” and La Russa previously indicated that he’d have an answer by early this week, but…

Matt and I look into the crystal ball. Is everything coming up Cliffy?

I the article, Jim Edmonds says “I’m done,” but that’s referring to the season. Would he still consider playing in 2011? “I’ll have to ask the wife about that,” Edmonds said. He also said that the idea of coming back would be more appealing if he could be a backup first baseman somewhere. He said…

Billy Wagner’s phenomenal career ending with him leaving a save situation and limping off the field before being replaced on the playoff roster due to an oblique injury is all kinds of not fair, but the diminutive flame-thrower remained a badass until the very end, agreeing to a pair of injections for the slim chance…

OK, fine, I was suckered. But it was kinda worth it.

Giants closer Brian Wilson, on “whether he would pay to see” the NLCS Game 1 matchup between Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay: No. They are paying me to see it. For some reason that cracked me up, maybe because the guy saying it looks like this.

I’m trying to walk back my emotions on all of this. I mean, he’s not dead or anything. And despite what he says about “not putting on the uniform again” he’s almost certainly going to be back hanging around the Braves spring training, probably in uniform as some special advisor or something like Tom Kelly…

This news comes qualifies as too little, too late for the Braves this season, but it sounds like Jair Jurrjens will at least be healthy heading into the offseason. Sidelined since mid-September with a partially torn meniscus in his right knee, Jurrjens threw six innings in an instructional league game yesterday and reported no problems.…

The fact that this man is still playing while the Braves are home organizing their fishing gear is proof that there is no God. Or that he exists and has a great sense of humor.

All things Billy Beane have lost quite a bit of gravitas over the past few years, but the A’s general manager still makes headlines when he weighs in on various topics and said yesterday that he thinks Sandy Alderson would be the perfect fit as the Mets’ next GM. There’s no question he would change…

Limited to 13 innings last season and 18 innings this year, Damaso Marte is now expected to undergo shoulder surgery after shutting down his rehab. “We’re going to pull the plug on Marte,” general manager Brian Cashman told Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. “He’s attempted to come back, but it just hasn’t…

Just as I was surprised that there is controversy over the Giants starting Madison Bumgarner over Barry Zito, I’m surprised that there’s controversy over the Rangers starting Jorge Cantu over Mitch Moreland at first base tonight against David Price. But apparently there is: When the sun went down on Monday, Rangers manager Ron W ashington…

Deciding who to root for once your team has been eliminated is a lot tougher than you might think.

I have no idea if the bidding for Liverpool FC is actually able to be reopened — the board did approve the Red Sox’ bid after all — but a Singapore businessman has just offered 20 million pounds more for the team than John Henry’s bunch wants to pay. I’m a bit rusty with my…

I roll my eyes when sports figures actively try to teach us life lessons. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t draw some important life lessons from watching them in action.

Just because there are, technically speaking, two possible answers to a question doesn’t mean that it’s a “terrific question.”

The Giants move one. But really: is there a pitching controversy in San Francisco?

The Giants move on. And so too does Bobby Cox.

Some more to-and-fro in this one. Derek Lowe got Freddy Sanchez to ground out to begin the top of the seventh inning, but was pulled in favor of Peter Moylan after loading the bases. Juan Uribe followed with a groundball to Alex Gonzalez, who pulled Omar Infante off the second base bag with the throw…

It looks like another nail-biter as we move to the top of the seventh inning at Turner Field. Cody Ross homered to tie the game at 1-1 in the top of the sixth inning — the first Giants’ hit of the evening, by the way — but Brian McCann just answered with a solo home…
