    Miguel Montero

    According to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Hank Schulman, Miguel Montero has been added to the NL All-Star roster in place of Placido Polanco.  This after Pablo Sandoval was given the spot of Jose Reyes earlier today. So, let’s compile an up-to-date set of All-Star rosters: American League Lineup CF Curtis Granderson SS Asdrubal Cabrera 1B…

  2. Redoing the 2001 draft: picks 11-20

    Jul 7, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Chris Young

    I’m redoing round one of the 2001 draft, pick by pick.  If you missed part one Wednesday, click here. 11. Detroit Tigers Actual: Kenny Baugh Redo: Gavin Floyd (4th pick, Phillies) After an impressive debut in 2001, Baugh suffered a torn labrum and missed the 2002 season. His stuff failed to come all of the…

  4. Derek Jeter’s 3,000 hits: the victims

    Jul 6, 2011, 6:22 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter, Lou Marson

    It shouldn’t take anyone more than a couple of guesses to figure out which pitcher Derek Jeter has the most of his 3,000 hits against.  It is, of course, the one pitcher who has has been on a rival AL East team for the entire duration of Jeter’s career. Here are the 12 pitchers Jeter has…

    Jayson Werth

    Nats 5, Cubs 4: Jayson Werth was getting booed like crazy — especially when he struck out with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh – but then he unexpectedly steals third base in the 10th inning and subsequently scores on a wild pitch, winning the ballgame, and the cheers rained down. His postgame…

  6. We’re doing it wrong: 2011 All-Star Game preview

    Jul 3, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game is supposed to be a grand spectacle, a chance for baseball fans to see all of the sport’s current greats in one stadium on the same night. And it is that. But a rule made official in 2003 now dictates that the winner of the Midsummer Classic is awarded home…

  7. “Final Vote” balloting now open for 2011 All-Star Game

    Jul 3, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    Justin Upton, Derrick Hall

    Major League Baseball named 66 All-Stars during Sunday’s selection show on TBS, but a total of 68 players will be on hand when the Midsummer Classic kicks off July 12 in Phoenix, Arizona. Through a week-long online “final vote,” one additional All-Star will be named to each roster. Ballots can be cast now on MLB.com.…

  8. All-snubs All-Star team led by Paul Konerko, Andrew McCutchen

    Jul 3, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    A lineup of shoulda-been All-Stars: Catcher - Miguel Montero (Diamondbacks): The AL found room for three catchers, while the NL had just two.  It really should have been the other way around.  While it would have been just fine for the AL to leave either Russell Martin or Matt Wieters off the team, the NL had…

    Phillies' Halladay throws in the fourth inning during their MLB Interleague baseball game with the Athletics in Philadelphia

    Some people didn’t like my little tour of the cities thing last week and said that you’d prefer it if I just stuck to the “Team X has won Y of Z games, so look out for Team X!” blather.  I can’t tell if those people are merely trolls or if there is a genuine…

  11. 2012 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 80-61

    Jorge Posada

    Honorable mentions Nos. 111-81 Part two of the top 111 free agents covers Nos. 80-61.

    Geovany Sot

    Sorry it’s coming a bit late this morning. Your author was under the weather last night and decided that rather than stay up watching baseball and reading box scores that an early bedtime was in order. Anyway: Cubs 4, Phillies 3: Ryan Madson had been gold in save situations, but came up pyrite last night: Geovany…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s Scores and Highlights

    Jun 6, 2011, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chad Billingsley, Aaron Miles

    Dodgers 9, Reds 6: Chad Billingsley — altogether now — helped his own cause by hitting  a homer, a double and driving in three.  I was watching the game when he hit the homer. I couldn’t see the beginning of his sentence, but Reds’ starter Travis Wood quite clearly mouthed the words “… homer to…

  14. WAR does the All-Star teams – AL version

    May 20, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Going strictly by Wins Above Replacement (in this case, the Baseball-Reference version of it), here’s your 2011 AL All-Star team of the moment: C Matt Wieters (Orioles) – 1.6 1B Adrian Gonzalez (Red Sox) – 1.9 2B Howie Kendrick (Angels) – 2.2 3B Kevin Youkilis (Red Sox) – 1.9 SS Asdrubal Cabrera (Indians) – 1.8…

  15. The most memorable home runs in each team’s history

    May 19, 2011, 2:46 PM EDT

    Gibson homer

    UPDATE:  I obviously missed a bunch, so here’s a post updating this list. As I mentioned this morning, one of my Twitter correspondents asked me last night to name each franchise’s most memorable home run.  With the caveat that (a) this can be subjective; and (b) in some cases, there are many great choices and…

  16. Chase Utley singles in first minor league rehab game

    May 10, 2011, 10:09 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Utley walks across the field after taking batting practice before a spring training game against the Baltimore Orioles

    According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a single as the designated hitter in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Clearwater earlier tonight. Utley had two strikeouts and a ground out over his first three at-bats, but managed to bloop a single to center field in his final at-bat in…

  17. Andres Torres, Mark DeRosa off DL, into Giants lineup

    May 10, 2011, 6:22 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v San Francisco Giants

    The Giants activated both Andres Torres (Achilles’ tendon) and Mark DeRosa (wrist) from the disabled list Tuesday and inserted them right into the lineup for their game against the Diamondbacks. Torres is returning to his usual leadoff spot, while DeRosa is playing third and batting seventh. As expected, the Giants sent the struggling Miguel Tejada to…

    Yankees Rangers Baseball

    Yankees 12, Rangers 5:  We read a lot of “Derek Jeter is done” commentary last week. Well, whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that Jeter was only mostly dead. And there’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Two homers for The Captain.  As for the game overall, I’ll…

    Apr 13, 2011, 5:58 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth

    Nationals 7, Phillies 4: Heavy matchup. Both literally — Livan Hernandez vs. Joe Blanton — and figuratively as Jayson Werth faced the Phillies for the first time since he signed with the Nats. A signing that the Phillies fans who made the now-customary trek to Washington and decided to boo Werth throughout the game apparently…

    High point of my weekend: a double shot of streptococcal pharyngitis in the Calcaterra household kept me from watching the Braves flail helplessly at Cole Hamels.

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    A night of some lights-out pitching performances. Which can mean only one thing: Bud Selig switched out the juiced baseballs because he knows we’re on to him!

  22. How to use Twitter properly to enhance your baseball experience

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    twitter follow me

    Moshe Mandel had a great post over at The Yankee Analysts yesterday. It’s about Twitter, and he keys on the biggest thing that keeps a lot of baseball fans off it: they misunderstand the point of it all. As an example, Moshe links to a Time Magazine list of the allegedly most important Twitter accounts…

  23. And now, the HardballTalk staff predictions

    Mar 30, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Oracle of Delphi

    Our Springtime Storyline previews are the Official Previews of HardballTalk. But despite our little paragraphs entitled “So, how are they going to do?” their real value is in talking about the issues facing each team, not in providing predictions. And, it should be noted, they are a collective product. For example, Aaron wrote up the…

  24. Joe Biden kept the Blue Jays out of their clubhouse yesterday

    Mar 24, 2011, 1:08 PM EDT

    Joe Biden, Mariano Rivera

    Remember how Joe Biden visited Yankees camp yesterday?  Well, apparently his arrival and all of the attendant security hoopla kept the Blue Jays from being able to get into their clubhouse, and they had to wait patiently behind security until they could do so. I assume this means that Canada will declare war on us…

  25. Who’s the greatest living player for each team?

    Mar 16, 2011, 1:34 PM EDT

    Yastrzemski

    Dan Shaughnessy has a column up about Carl Yastrzemski and what he’s doing these days. It’s a good read and I recommend it. But more interesting to me than the column itself, however, is a passing line Shaughnessy uses: “Fifty years after his rookie season, the greatest living Red Sox player …” That has sparked a…
