    Jun 23, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Lance Berkman

    Here’s the second twenty, free agents Nos. 40-21. The closer run begins here, and I’m also including the one potential Japanese import I felt comfortable enough ranking. I’ll be wrapping up the series Friday morning.

  2. Ronnie Belliard to retire after one final game tonight

    Jun 14, 2011, 5:56 PM EDT

    Ronnie Belliard turns a double play

    Veteran infielder Ronnie Belliard said Tuesday that tonight’s game for the Phillies’ Triple-A Lehigh Valley affiliate will be his last and that he’s going to retire. Belliard signed a minor league deal with the Phillies after failing to make the Yankees out of spring training this year.  He played in 82 games with the Dodgers…

  3. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2011, 5:30 AM EDT

    Florida Marlins v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Yes, it’s Memorial Day. But it’s also Monday, and that still happened.

  4. Corey Patterson keeps on rolling with four more hits Sunday

    May 29, 2011, 4:38 PM EDT

    Corey Patterson, Mike McCoy

    Corey Patterson followed up his 5-for-7 day Saturday by going 4-for-5 with another homer as part of the Blue Jays’ 13-4 win over the White Sox on Sunday. He’s the first player to collect nine hits in two games since Minnesota’s Denard Span did it Aug. 7-8, 2009.  He’s the first player to do it…

  5. Finally given some protection in the lineup, Jose Bautista homers in first at-bat

    May 23, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    The slump is over

    Jose Bautista, who went four straight at-bats Sunday without homering, got back in the swing of things Monday, taking Bartolo Colon deep in the first inning against the Yankees. Bautista now has 18 1/2 homers this season.  We’re giving the other half of this one to Yunel Escobar, who had Colon shaking on the mound…

  6. The American League’s worst by position

    May 4, 2011, 8:55 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Minnesota Twins

    Just as the title says, I’m going position by position here to look for the AL’s weakest offensive situations to date. I’ll do the NL tomorrow. Presented along with the team is the player most responsible. Twins C – 390 (Drew Butera) Twins 2B – 451 (Luke Hughes) Mariners SS – 465 (Brendan Ryan) Red…

  8. Jake Fox has an MLB-high seven homers, but do spring stats really matter?

    Mar 18, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    Fox_Jake

    Yesterday my Twitter feed lit up with Orioles writers marveling at Jake Fox hitting his sixth and seventh homers of the spring, which is good for the MLB lead and suddenly makes his chances of cracking the Opening Day roster a popular topic. While no doubt impressed by the power display, manager Buck Showalter explained…

  9. Indians finalize one-year, $1 million deal with Orlando Cabrera

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:48 PM EDT

    Orlando Cabrera, Jayson Werth

    It took nearly a week to go from reported as done to officially done, but the Indians have finally announced their one-year deal with Orlando Cabrera. He’ll get $1 million in guaranteed money, plus various incentives, and will compete for the starting job at second base with Jason Donald and Luis Valbuena. I’ve seen quite…

  11. The Blue Jays have next to nothing in payroll obligations for 2012

    Jan 22, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    Alex Anthopoulos

    Some teams have all the luck. Just a couple of years ago, the Blue Jays were stuck with massive commitments to both Alex Rios and Vernon Wells. But thanks to some old fashioned generosity by White Sox general manager Ken Williams and Angels general manager Tony Reagins, the Blue Jays don’t have to worry about…

  12. Report: Brewers to acquire Shaun Marcum from Jays

    Dec 5, 2010, 9:09 PM EDT

    Shaun Marcum

    Update: The Jays are expected to acquire 2008 first-round pick Brett Lawrie in return for Marcum. Lawrie, a 20-year-old second baseman, hit .285/.346/.449 as one of the youngest players in the Southern League last year. The Brewers’ No. 1 prospect, he’ll be a candidate to push Aaron Hill to third base in 2012, or he…

  13. Jays and Uggla seem an unlikely match

    Nov 14, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    Dan Uggla

    Not to say it couldn’t work out.   But Buster Olney’s report that the Jays, according to rival executives, have emerged as the favorites to acquire Dan Uggla strikes an odd chord. The Jays not only led the majors in homers last season, but they did it with a total nearly 20 percent greater than any…

  14. Francisco Liriano and Tim Hudson win Comeback Player of the Year awards

    Oct 5, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    MLB announced this afternoon that Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano and Braves right-hander Tim Hudson have won the Comeback Player of the Year awards for their respective leagues. Liriano struggled last year in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, going 5-13 with a 5.80 ERA, but was one of baseball’s best starters this…

  15. Papelbon blows another one: Sox lose to the Jays, 6-5

    Aug 12, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    Jonathan Papelbon doesn’t lead the league in blown saves. But for some reason, it always feels like a bigger deal when he blows one than when someone else does. And he blew another one today, giving Toronto a victory over Boston. John Lackey was cruising throughout most of the game. He had thrown only around…

  16. Morrow loses no-hitter in ninth inning against Rays

    Aug 8, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    Brandon Morrow struck out 17 Rays batters this afternoon in Toronto and came within one out of a no-hitter. He threw 137 pitches — 97 of which were strikes.

  17. Lots of history in today's Rays-Blue Jays game

    Aug 7, 2010, 5:11 PM EDT

    Some good, some bad. I’m gonna throw you for a loop and start with the bad. James Shields tied a modern day major league record by giving up six home runs in this afternoon’s 17-11 loss to the Blue Jays. Shields is the eighth pitcher since 1920 to do it and the first since R.A.…

  18. Rumor: Giants, Jays, Dbacks talk three-way trade

    Jul 31, 2010, 3:42 PM EDT

    And that’s all we know. FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi says San Francisco, Toronto and Arizona have discussed a three-way deal, but he has no additional details for us. It’s well known that the Giants have interest in both Jose Bautista and Scott Downs from Toronto. But I’m struggling to see how the Diamondbacks fit in…

  19. Your Monday Afternoon Power Rankings

    Jul 12, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    The Yankees display the rare “Three-Man High-Butt” in this photo. Why are they so happy?

  20. The Week Ahead: Moment of truth for Blue Jays

    May 30, 2010, 10:18 PM EDT

    The Yankees, Red Sox, and perhaps, the Rays. That was the common thinking on how the AL East race would go entering the season. The Toronto Blue Jays didn’t listen to those projections and enter the week at 30-22. They’re only in third place and 4 1/2 games back. But their record would be good enough…

  21. And That Happened: Tuesday's Scores and Highlights

    May 26, 2010, 5:51 AM EDT

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: In light the Phillies’ struggles against Tim Wakefied and R.A. Dickey (6 IP, 7 H, 0 ER, 7K), the Mets are rumored to have offered contracts to Charlie Hough and Steve Sparks, the Braves are trying to persuade Phil Niekro to come out of retirement , the Nationals have been in…

  22. Springtime Storylines: Is anyone gonna want to watch the Blue Jays this year?

    Mar 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Between now and Opening Day, HBT will take a look at each of the 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2010 season.  Ah, the Blue Jays. The lambs to the AL East slaughter . . . The big question: Is anyone gonna want to…

  25. Jays offense to suffer in wake of Gonzalez signing

    Nov 26, 2009, 2:14 PM EDT

    The Blue Jays are being aggressive early in their bid to hold on to fourth place in the AL East. One day after re-signing backup John McDonald for $3 milion over two years, GM Alex Anthopoulos nabbed Alex Gonzalez to start at shortstop, guaranteeing him $2.75 million. It’s a very, very good start for my…
