  1. Gold Glove finalists announced

    Oct 29, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

  2. 2012 projections review: second base

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

  3. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    trout getty

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

  4. My MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year picks

    Oct 5, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Here are my picks for the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards for each league. Obviously, these are all for fun. I’m not a BBWAA member and do not have ballots for any of these awards. Feel free to flame away. AL MVP 1. Mike Trout 2. Miguel Cabrera 3. Robinson Cano 4.…

  5. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Oct 3, 2012, 6:09 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…

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

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, White Sox 1: Did you know that if you win the AL Central that you contract a horrible disease? If you answered yes, you must be either the Tigers or the White Sox. That’s five straight losses for Chicago. Jered Weaver wins his 19th, allowing one run over six and a third. Kendrys…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  8. Adrian Beltre hits for the cycle against the Twins

    Aug 24, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    Adrian Beltre Getty

    While Matt Harrison‘s no-hit bid was broken up with two outs in the seventh inning tonight against the Twins, the fans at the Ballpark in Arlington still got to witness a little history. Adrian Beltre hit for his second career cycle as part of an 8-0 victory. He had an RBI triple in the bottom…

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

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

  10. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aug 19, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Houston Astros

    The longest current winning streak in the National League belongs to the 61-59 Arizona Diamondbacks. With center fielder Chris Young going 4-for-5, right fielder Justin Upton finishing 2-for-6 and second baseman Aaron Hill driving home three, the Snakes cruised to their third straight victory on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, stomping the Astros 12-4.…

  11. All-Star starter Dan Uggla now hitting seventh for Braves

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Dan Uggla

    There’s been a lot of hostility directed Tony La Russa’s way for all of the NL All-Star snubs this week. Really, though, it’s the fans as a whole that made things more difficult than they needed to be by voting Dan Uggla, Rafael Furcal and Pablo Sandoval into the starting lineup. The Braves tonight dropped…

  12. Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

    Jul 4, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    Yu Darvish

    With one day remaining in the “Final Vote” contest for All-Star spots Rangers starter Yu Darvish leads the AL balloting and Cardinals third baseman David Freese leads the NL balloting. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the…

  13. Chipper Jones texts Bryce Harper, calls him “very classy”

    Jul 3, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    stay_classy

    Bryce Harper and Chipper Jones are pitted against each other in the “Final Vote” contest for an All-Star spot, with most people assuming that the Nationals phenom will win. Harper said Sunday that he’d vote for Jones because “I think a Hall of Famer should be able to go to the All-Star game his last…

  14. See the Brewers win on a double-error

    Jul 2, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Brewers

    When Carlos Gomez scored to give the Brewers a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, it was the first time since 1993 that a game ended on a play with two errors. Here’s the video: And this is one of the things about errors: the game-ending miscues here were charged to catcher Miguel Montero…

  15. Bryce Harper would vote for Chipper Jones for All-Star Game

    Jul 1, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper has to be considered the favorite to win the NL Final Vote for the last spot on the All-Star team, but he said after Sunday’s game that, “I’d vote for Chipper.” Harper and Chipper Jones are in the mix along with Michael Bourn, Aaron Hill and David Freese in the Final Vote, but…

  16. “Final Vote” balloting now open for 2012 All-Star Game

    final vote

    Major League Baseball revealed its 2012 All-Star rosters Sunday on TBS. But not everything is set for next Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City. Over the next week, online ballots can be cast to send one additional player from each league to participate in this year’s Midsummer Classic. MLB calls it the “Final Vote,” and…

  17. In which I still don’t get Jim Tracy

    Apr 7, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    Jim Tracy

    Earlier today I complimented Kirk Gibson on how he’s worked the No. 2 spot in the order in these first two games, using Chris Young against the righty Tim Lincecum on Friday and Aaron Hill versus the lefty Madison Bumgarner today. Rockies manager Jim Tracy, on the other hand, isn’t really looking for his No.…

  18. Kirk Gibson pushing the right buttons in Arizona

    Apr 7, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kirk Gibson

    Kirk Gibson appeared in over his head at times in the postseason last year, but now he’s back demonstrating why he was the 2011 NL Manager of the Year in the first two games of 2012. After not using him there all spring, Gibson inserted Chris Young into the second spot in the order Friday…

  19. Springtime Storylines: Was 2011 a fluke for the Arizona Diamondbacks?

    Mar 26, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Justin Upton, Matt Davidson, Chris Young

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Big Question: Was 2011 a fluke year? The Diamondbacks went from 70 wins in 2009 to…

  20. Running down the rosters: Arizona Diamondbacks

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Gerardo Parra, Chris Young, Justin Upton

    Give the Diamondbacks credit; even though all of the team’s key players were already under control for 2012, they didn’t stand pat after winning the NL West crown last season. In writing the team’s postmortem last October, I stated that adding a No. 3 starter had to be the priority. That’s what the team did…

  21. Top 111 Free Agents: the post-Prince Fielder update

    Jan 24, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    National League first baseman Fielder of the Brewers watches three-run home run in fourth inning during Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Phoenix

    Here’s an up-to-date list of how the top 111 free agents have fared to date. Note that the list below doesn’t include Yu Darvish or Yoenis Cespedes, two of the remaining gems available to major league teams. 1. Albert Pujols (Cardinals): Angels – 10 years, $254 million 2. Prince Fielder (Brewers) 3. Jose Reyes (Mets):…

  23. 2012 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Nov 7, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols celebrates his single next to Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder in the 2nd inning of Game 3 of the MLB National League Championship Series baseball playoffs in St. Louis

    Instead of breaking the rankings up further, here’s the entire top 50. Links to the articles for free agents 111-51 can be found below. Again, I’m ranking the free agents based more on how I believe teams view them than how I see the players myself. Personally, I’d take a chance on Vladimir Guerrero over…

  24. Scott Boras takes some shots at the Diamondbacks and John McDonald

    Nov 5, 2011, 6:02 PM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Arizona Diamondbacks

    According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Scott Boras said his client Willie Bloomquist is drawing “a lot of interest” on the free agent market. Yawn. I can’t recall the last time Boras didn’t say that about one of his clients, so the real interesting part of this story is how he ended up…
