  1. 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…

  2. 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…

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

    Jul 23, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    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,…

  4. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 17, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    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…

  5. 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…

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

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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,…

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

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    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…

    May 18, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    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…

  12. Red Sox, Twins pitchers lead the way when it comes to getting shelled

    May 5, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    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…

    The Question

    Q: What would you do if you joined the BBWAA for 10 years? Vote for Jay Bell and Bill Mueller for the Hall of Fame? Act petulantly and intellectually dishonest while appealing to authority if and when I was called out for my irrationality?  Anything I wanted to, really. Q: Should sports reporters/analysts be able to…

    The Question

    Another round of Twitter questions, some of which I held back for the next edition of HBT Extra. These, however, did not make the video cut. Which is cool, because as we all know, the non-video ones are usually more fun. Anyway: Q: So…what would you say, ya do here? Well look, I already told you!…

  15. And now your HardballTalk writer predictions

    Apr 4, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Oracle of Delphi

    We’re so wrong about these things all the time I’m not even sure why we do them. Yet … we do them. All I ask is that when you all accuse us of hating the Phillies, you remember that this post is floating around the archives, with all four of us picking them to win…

  16. HBT-endorsed candidate wins spot in MLB Fan Cave

    Mar 8, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    mlb fan cave

    Last month when MLB announced the final 50 candidates for this year’s “Fan Cave” we gave Lindsay Guentzel the official HardballTalk endorsement for the gig, so I’m happy to say that she made the cut as one of nine fans chosen to participate all season long. Lindsay will be joined in New York by Ashley…

  17. Shane Victorino softens stance on demand for five-year deal

    Mar 2, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies  v Los Angeles Dodgers

    One day after saying he wanted a five-year contract extension from the Phillies free agent-to-be Shane Victorino backtracked a bit, telling Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer: “I made it seem like I want a five-year deal, but I’d love to stay.” Most of all, Victorino said, he’d like to get a new contract figured…

  18. Running down the rosters: Miami Marlins

    Feb 21, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Marlins Spring Baseball

    The hopes are high with LeBron James having one of the greatest statistical seasons in NBA history and the Dolphins potentially landing Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn as their new quarterback. Also, the baseball team has a new name, a new stadium and a new star shortstop. Let’s see if that does the Marlins any…

  19. 2012 projections: top 10 second basemen

    Feb 8, 2012, 12:17 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    The top 10 at second base is led by the one player at the position I have projected to hit .300 this year: .882 – Robinson Cano (Yankees) – 638 AB – .882 in 2011 .859 – Ian Kinsler (Rangers) – 560 AB – .832 in 2011 .855 – Chase Utley (Phillies) – 532 AB…

  20. The worst All-Stars of all-time

    Jan 31, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Ken Harvey

    Even with rosters expanded and more and more players seemingly sitting out the game, there aren’t quite as many bad All-Stars as their used to be, at least not by my research. The list of the worst All-Stars is mostly comprised of old timers, but I’ve squeezed a couple of more recent players in. Here’s…

  21. Pat Burrell and the Class of 1998

    Jan 30, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    Pat Burrell, Charlie Manuel

    Pat Burrell, the first overall pick in the 1998 draft, is expected to announce his retirement in the coming days. J.D. Drew, another top player from the same class, may do the same. So, here’s a look at the top players from the 1998 draft, as judged by Baseball-Reference’s version of WAR (the list only…

  22. Miguel Cabrera is in the Best Shape of His Life

    Jan 26, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    I share Aaron’s dubiousness about Miguel Cabrera playing third base for the Tigers.  And I laughed during the Prince Fielder press conference when Fielder said this: “I’m confident in Miguel doing a good job. That’s where he started out, at third base.” Which is why Chipper Jones will be playing shortstop for the Braves, Jim…

  23. Tracking the non-tenders: Joe Saunders, Luke Scott, Hong-Chih Kuo

    Dec 13, 2011, 12:54 AM EDT

    Luke Scott

    Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery. The Orioles could re-sign him for significantly less…

  24. 2012 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 111-91

    Nov 1, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Andruw Jones

    With Monday’s option deadline having passed, here’s take two of the winter’s top 111 free agents. Please note that I rank players not on how I rate them but rather on how I believe teams will rate them; essentially, I’m ranking them according to how valuable their contracts will be. (All ages are as of…

  25. None of the top-nine payroll teams are still alive in the playoffs

    Oct 8, 2011, 11:55 AM EDT

    Money Bag

    Just a quick update on something Aaron mentioned yesterday. With the Phillies eliminated, we can now say that none of the top-nine payroll teams made it through the first round of the playoffs. In fact, the Tigers and Cardinals are the only teams left with a payroll north of $100 million. Here are the payroll and…
