This is the second article in an eight-part series examining this winter’s free agents and looking at potential trade candidates and non-tenders. I’m also predicting contracts and destinations for the major free agents, but given that it’s August, those are to be taken with a grain of salt. Relief Pitchers Mariano Rivera (Yankees) – Even…

The worst part about Jeff Francoeur hitting the game-winning homer? The Atlanta papers will now start agitating for the Braves to somehow bring him back to the Braves.

Five shutouts around baseball last night, one of which may be one of the final nails in the coffin of Jerry Manuel’s managerial career.

Year of the pitcher my butt. Runs came by the bushel last night.

Lots of soggy, steamy rain-delayed games. Lots of pitchers getting beat up. Methinks the dog days are upon us.

We’ve seen bad calls this year and we’ve seen umpires getting all up in players’ faces. Phil Cuzzi manages both in a single inning.

Note: due to the All-Star break, we now bring you a special “Classic” version of “And That Happened.” The following originally ran on July 13, 1969

Since the All-Star rosters were announced Sunday people have been arguing about who should and shouldn’t have made the team, with the focus often being on the biggest snubs. But who are the biggest All-Star snubs, in terms of never being picked for an entire career? Baseball-Reference.com recently added that sorting feature to its amazing…

Today, we are all Clevelanders.

That’s Ken Rosenthal’s assessment, and it’s not a bad one. His thinking: (a) interim GM Jerry Dipoto can’t be expected to have been handed the reins to do a full-blown fire sale mere weeks after taking over for Josh Byrnes; and (b) the Diamondbacks really don’t have a need to slash payroll given that Brandon…

Canada Day and the Blue Jays played a road game and Jason Bay was benched. I spit in your poutine, Major League Baseball.

There’s a Roger Miller reference in here someplace, but I link to Asleep at the Wheel’s version, because the video quality was higher.

OK, it’s a little late this morning, but I smelled it and it’s still drinkable . . .

The Yankees (and Jeter’s hand in that pic) are on top. The Pirates (and Cano’s hand in that pic) are on the bottom. Who’s in between?

Today’s recaps include a one-act play, starring Buster Olney as your wingman at a college bar.

Often in sports there’s talk of “big-name players,” but this post isn’t quite about that (or really about much of anything, as you’ll soon see). Maybe it’s just me getting old and thinking ahead to all the botched pronunciations in my future, but I’ve been amazed by the number of “interesting” names being drafted so…

Jimmy Rollins, who is currently on the disabled list after re-injuring his right calf muscle last month, told Martin Frank of the News Journal that he doesn’t know when he’ll return from the disabled list. At minimum, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said that he doesn’t expect Rollins back by the start of the team’s next…

Tigers 3, Indians 0: So, did anything notable happen in this game? Mariners 2, Twins 1: Between a tornado warning (see the Cubs-Pirates recap at the bottom) and the Armando Galarraga stuff I was unable to pay any attention to Ken Griffey’s retirement before this game. I will remedy that later today. Dodgers 1, Diamondbacks…

Red Sox 7, Yankees 6: For the second time in three days Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera blew a game. This one was way more on Chamberlain — he came into the eighth with a 5-1 lead and the inning ended with things knotted at 5 — but Rivera came in and gave up two…

As part of his “Media Power Rankings” column at SI.com Richard Deitsch followed up on the Twitter/MLB story from last month: NBCSports.com baseball blogger Aaron Gleeman reported that Major League Baseball had cracked down on the Twitter usage of its MLB.com writers, ordering them to stop tweeting non-baseball topics. … SI.com confirmed independently that MLB.com…

Phillies 11, Mets 5: Look, there are about 17 different ways in which Johan Santana’s awful night could be described, but I think the fact that he walked Jamie Moyer with the bases loaded in the fourth pretty much tells you all you need to know. The Victorino grand slam that immediately followed was less…

Brad Lidge came off the disabled list today, and as Aaron pointed out yesterday, there is an open question as to whether he jumps right back into his customary role as the Phillies’ mediocre closer or if, instead, Ryan Madson will retain the job of Phillies’ mediocre closer for the time being. Or at least…

Twins 2, Tigers 0: Francisco Liriano dominates again. Jon Rauch gets his seventh save in eight chances. Jim Thome, Jason Kubel and Delmon Young all get in the game and provide some production. As long as it doesn’t snow during the Twins’ next homestand, I think we’ll be able to say that all of the…
