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

    Jul 31, 2010, 3:42 PM EDT

    And that’s all we know.’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…

  3. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 2009's best 'comeback' seasons

    Oct 4, 2009, 8:09 PM EDT

    Because everyone likes a good comeback story.

Carpenter finished the…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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.…
