    David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News has a really good article about Vance Worley, who was traded from the Phillies to the Twins for Ben Revere this offseason. It begins with the amusing story of how Worley learned about the trade from Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. while waiting to pick up an…

    Fun things — and some not so fun things — from today’s voting results beyond the names we talked about already: Falling off the ballot because they didn’t receive 5%: Bernie Williams, Kenny Lofton, Sandy Alomar Jr.,Julio Franco, David Wells, Steve Finley, Shawn Green, Aaron Sele, Jeff Cirillo,Royce Clayton, Jeff Conine, Roberto Hernandez, Ryan Klesko,…

  3. My imaginary Hall of Fame ballot

    Jan 8, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Roger Clemens

    I don’t have a Hall of Fame vote, obviously, but I’ve written enough about it and criticized enough people who do have a vote that I may as well say what I’d do if I had the franchise. Here’s my whole ballot. I include everyone on it because, unlike so many of the voters, I…

  4. Twins and Kevin Correia agree to two-year, $10 million contract

    Dec 10, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    After acquiring right-hander Vance Worley from the Phillies last week in the Ben Revere trade, the Twins have added another starting pitcher. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Twins and right-hander Kevin Correia have reached agreement on a contract. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick hears that he’ll get $10 million over two years. Correia, 32, posted…

  6. Looking back at the HBT writer predictions

    Sep 28, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Oracle of Delphi

    I know we have a few days of the season left, but I figure now would be as good a time as any to look back to April and see how the HBT folks here did at predicting the playoff teams this year.  We made or predictions on April 4. D.J. got seven of the…

  7. You Asked Me Questions on Twitter. So I Shall Answer Them.

    Sep 27, 2012, 10:29 AM EDT

    The Question

    Q: Was this a challenging year for you with Phillies fans not such an easy target? How will you adjust your future trolling? Trolling is like Jiu-Jitsu: you use your opponents’ own momentum against them, cause them to overplay their native tendencies into foolishness. Phillies’ fans’ tendency is to declare their team some unbeatable force…

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:11 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 4, Marlins 3: The Braves clinch a playoff berth on a Freddie Freeman walkoff jack. It only guarantees them a slot in the one-game gimmicky thing next Friday, but that beats the hell out of last September. The only thing that would have made this better is if Heath Bell, as the the Marlins…

    The Question

    I haven’t done one of these in forever. Mostly because they were getting a little tired. Batman. Aquaman. Bourbon. Sure, those are things I love, hate and love, respectively, but a sameness crept in.  Hopefully now that some time has passed, this exercise will seem fresh again. Have at you! Q: I’ve always wondered how…

  10. Some people are born to do Brandon Inge injury updates

    Aug 24, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Brandon Inge Getty

    I went out drinking with a big group of people last night and one of them was a HardballTalk reader who remarked that he can usually tell who wrote posts without actually looking at the bylines. I asked for an example, so he said a few things Calcaterra tends to focus on and a few…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  12. Upton brothers hit 100th career home runs on the same night

    Aug 3, 2012, 9:14 PM EDT

    B.J. and Justin Upton AP

    Here’s something pretty cool. Justin Upton launched a long home run to left field off Phillies’ right-hander Kyle Kendrick in the top of the second inning tonight for the 100th home run of his career. Less than an hour later, his big brother B.J. Upton connected for a solo shot to center field off Orioles’…

  13. Ted Lilly scratched from rehab start after setback with shoulder

    Aug 3, 2012, 8:25 PM EDT

    Ted Lilly Getty

    The Dodgers acquired Joe Blanton from the Phillies late this afternoon in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. While it’s certainly not the flashiest of moves, the acquisition makes even more sense now that Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. is reporting that Ted Lilly was scratched from a rehab…

  14. Ryan Dempster tells Cubs he’d approve trade to Dodgers, Yankees, Rangers

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    UPDATE: Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that Dempster has informed the Cubs he’d waive his 10-and-5 trade veto rights for deals to the Dodgers, Yankees, and Rangers. In other words, Los Angeles has competition. ========== Ryan Dempster vetoed a potential deal to the Braves last week, leading to all sorts of drama, but it…

  15. What does Dave Winfield think about Ichiro wearing his number?

    Jul 24, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Dave Winfield

    This is what he thinks: Everyone’s asking about my thoughts on @yankees latest #31 Ichiro. I don’t know how many wore it before or after me but I wore it the best. — Dave Winfield (@DaveWinfieldHOF) July 24, 2012 Bob Wickman, Javier Vazquez and Hensley “Bam Bam” Muelens beg to differ. For that matter so…

    Dark Knight Rises

    Pardon me if I seem discombobulated, but I’m suffering from weekend movie whiplash. On Friday night I saw “The Dark Knight Rises.” Yesterday I saw “Safety Not Guaranteed.” If you can find me two movies out right now that are more dissimilar in terms of tone, themes, budget and every other single other relevant measure,…

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

  18. Royals want a player, not a prospect, for Jonathan Broxton

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jonathan Broxton

    That according to FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi: Broxton, who was signed to set up Joakim Soria this season, has a 1.99 ERA and 21 saves in 24 opportunities as Kansas City’s closer. Still, the Royals would likely be OK without him, as they’d still have some combination of Greg Holland, Aaron Crow and Tim Collins to…

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  20. Reviewing the rotations; Nats, Dodgers lead the way

    Jun 18, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    David Price

    A couple of months before the season, I used my Rotoworld projections to rank the rotations, based strictly on ERA, from 1-30. Let’s look at that list now and see where each team starters’ measure up about 40 percent of the way through the season. Projected rank – Team – Current rank 1. Phillies: 3.39…

  21. The Blue Jays just lost another starting pitcher

    Jun 15, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Drew Hutchison Reuters

    This hasn’t been a good week for the Blue Jays’ starting rotation. After losing Brandon Morrow to an oblique strain and Kyle Drabek to a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, now it appears Drew Hutchison could be headed for an extended absence. According to Mike Wilner of of Sportsnet Radio The FAN 590,…

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

    The Question

    We did the Twitter questions thing again last night. Let’s go: Q: How do the Braves end up as “your” team if you grew up in WV, TBS? Yep. That and an electric attraction to Andres Thomas. Q: Will Ryan Braun be elected to start the All-Star Game even with the PED cloud over his head? He’s…

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 7, Marlins 0: Brandon Beachy: the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. He shuts out the Marlins on five hits and ups his record to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA. Giants 7, Cardinals 5: Bad Cardinal defense and a little more offense than usual gave the Giants some runs on a day when Matt…

    Clay Buchholz

    Expanding on a tweet from ESPN’s Jeremy Lundblad, here’s the number of times each team in baseball has had a pitcher give up at least five earned runs this season. 14 – Red Sox 12 – Twins 8 – Rockies, Yankees 7 – Cubs, Mets 6 – Angels, Blue Jays, Braves, Mariners, Rangers, Royals, Tigers…
