  1. If Mariners are done with Lopez, suitors should be plentiful

    Nov 24, 2009, 4:29 PM EDT

    It’s been suspected by some, but never phrased so strongly. Seattle Times writer Geoff Baker — our most trusted Mariners news source — wrote Tuesday that he “seriously doubts” second baseman Jose Lopez will still be a Mariner by the start of spring training. No legitimate Lopez rumors have sprung up yet, with the little…

    Free Agency Preview – Catcher Free Agency Preview – First base & DH This is part three in a series of columns looking at this winter’s free agents, trade candidates and non-tender possibilities. I’ll be making predictions for the key free agents, but try not to take them too awfully seriously. Here are the second…

  4. Shin-Soo Choo gets boned, and other thoughts on the Silver Slugger Awards

    Nov 13, 2009, 9:20 AM EDT

    The Silver Slugger Awards were announced last night. Like the Gold Gloves, the Silver Slugger is voted on by managers and coaches and stuff. Which makes little damn sense. We’ve long been in a world where offensive contributions can be quantified objectively — especially compared to defense — so why there’s a vote involved is…

  5. 2009's best 'comeback' seasons

    Oct 4, 2009, 8:09 PM EDT

    Because everyone likes a good comeback story. Chris Carpenter: After being sidelined for much of the past two seasons following Tommy John surgery, Chris Carpenter has not only become a near-lock as the NL Comeback Player of the Year, but he could be in line for his second Cy Young, as well. Carpenter finished the…

  6. Just take your base, Jorge

    Sep 16, 2009, 2:36 AM EDT

    Take your base Jorge. Just take your base. That’s what you do when a pitcher throws a pitch behind you. A pitcher on a team that is not going to come anywhere near sniffing the playoffs. Yes, Jesse Carlson threw that ball near your backside on purpose (somehow he missed). He was trying to hit…

  7. Daily Dose: Pena's unique season ends

    Sep 8, 2009, 12:02 AM EDT

    Carlos Pena’s strange season came to an end Monday when CC Sabathia broke two fingers on his left hand with a fastball in the first inning. Pena will miss the remaining four weeks after hitting .227/.356/.537 with 39 homers and 100 RBIs in 135 games, leaving him with the highest OPS in baseball history among…

    Aug 31, 2009, 5:02 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Big Papi back to putting up big numbers

    Aug 27, 2009, 12:41 PM EDT

    Remember when David Ortiz was hitting just .185 with one homer through two months and people were quick to write him off as washed up? Turns out, not so much. Ortiz went deep twice last night, including a walk-off blast that curled around Pesky Pole in the bottom of the ninth inning, and has now…

  11. And That Happened: Sunday's scores and highlights

    Aug 3, 2009, 7:00 AM EDT

    Hello all. I’m pinch-hitting for Craig as he works on perfecting his Perry Mason imitation. Go easy on me. I can’t even imitate Rusty Hardin. Dodgers 9, Braves 1: Chad Billingsley struck out nine in five innings, but Joe Torre sat him down after the pitcher came down with a cramp in his hamstring. Billingsley’s…

    Jul 15, 2009, 4:29 PM EDT

    I went with Zack Greinke as AL MVP one-third of the way through the season, but he’s fallen back to the pack by posting a 3.97 ERA since the beginning of June. The focus will return to the position players this time around. Here’s the top 16, according to VORP: 1. Joe Mauer – 46.22.…

  15. Five Breakthrough First Half Performers

    Jul 4, 2009, 2:17 PM EDT

    This Fourth of July weekend I’ll take stock of a few breakout performers and duds of the first half and possible breakthrough performers for the second half. First, five breakthrough stars of the first half: Edwin Jackson: Doesn’t It feel like we have been talking about this guy forever? Blessed with a mid-90s fastball and…

  18. Daily Dose: Cardinals bring in help for Pujols

    Jun 28, 2009, 11:45 PM EDT

    Acquired from Cleveland for Chris Perez plus a player to be named later, Mark DeRosa jumped right into St. Louis’ cleanup spot Sunday and went 0-for-3 with a walk hitting behind Albert Pujols. While not a prototypical cleanup hitter, DeRosa has batted .280/.364/.473 with 34 homers and 43 doubles since the beginning of last year,…

    Jun 25, 2009, 5:45 AM EDT

    Marlins 5, Orioles 2: Ricky Nolasco has been a completely different pitcher since his little jaunt to New Orleans to get his pyloric valve opened or whatever the hell is was. In his four starts since his return, he’s given up two earned runs, two earned runs, one earned run and last night zero earned…

    Following yesterday’s attempt at the guessing the NL roster, here’s a preview of the potential AL All-Star roster. Catchers Starter: Joe MauerBackups: Victor Martinez Martinez is listed as a catcher on the ballot, so he’s the obvious choice to back up Mauer. If the AL goes with three catchers, then Jason Varitek and Mike Napoli…

  22. RAR has Longoria, Ibanez as MVPs through May

    Jun 1, 2009, 1:08 PM EDT

    Fan Graphs is a site that I couldn’t live without and has a great stat called Runs Above Replacement (RAR) that combines offensive and defensive contributions while comparing players to “replacement-level” guys at the same position. For example, how many runs would the Cardinals lose if they had to replace Albert Pujols with a random…
