  2. Spring training questions: Oakland Athletics

    Feb 25, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be looking at a few of the questions facing each team this spring. 1. Can Ben Sheets and Justin Duchscherer hold up at the top of the rotation? Sheets would seem to have the better chance of the two. He hasn’t put in a full season since 2004,…

  6. Your pre-arbitration filing deadline signing scoreboard, Part II

    Jan 19, 2010, 1:22 PM EDT

    More of the arbitration filing deadline insanity Part I is here (UPDATE: We now have a Part III too!).  All are one-year deals unless otherwise specified: Jeff Francoeur, Mets, $5 million.  I’d lay into the guy here, but at this point I’d be like ripping on that awful, horrible girl you used to date but…

  9. Chapman is a good gamble for the Reds

    Jan 10, 2010, 4:52 PM EDT

    Jon Heyman tweets his initial reaction to the Cincinnati Reds’ unexpected signing of Aroldis Chapman: I think the Reds are cracked giving Aroldis Chapman $30 mil. There, I said it. I disagree. In fact, I think that reaction — and many others like it you’ll see in the next 24 hours — is borne more…

  10. Winter meetings preview: NL teams

    Dec 6, 2009, 8:05 PM EDT

    Here’s a quick look at what the National League teams could be trying to do this week in Indianapolis. Arizona – The Diamondbacks should have some money to spend, and they need a starter, a setup man, a first baseman and a closer. They probably won’t do any long-term deals, though, and they may well…

  11. Amaro had his reasons for the Polanco deal. Bad reasons, but reasons all the same

  12. A's get infielders Fox, Miles from Cubs

    Dec 3, 2009, 6:29 PM EDT

    ESPN Chicago is reporting that the A’s have acquired Jake Fox and Aaron Miles from the Cubs for reliever Jeff Gray and two prospects. It’s hard to imagine that the A’s actually wanted Miles. Instead, taking all or a portion of his $2.7 million salary was part of the price to get Fox, who is…

  21. Previewing Saturday's Rising Stars Game

    Nov 7, 2009, 3:52 PM EDT

  22. It's all on Pedro's shoulders now

    Nov 4, 2009, 4:05 PM EDT

    The Phillies managed to score four runs in six innings against a fully rested Andy Pettitte in Game 3 of the World Series on Saturday. Given that he’ll be working on short rest tonight, it seems doubtful that they’ll be shut down entirely. Pettitte hadn’t even started on four days’ rest since Sept. 5. His…

    Jayson Werth and Shane Victorino homered and Ryan Howard extended his streak of postseason games with an RBI to a record seven, but Sunday night was all about Cliff Lee. The left-hander pitched eight shutout innings and struck out 10 in the Phillies’ 11-0 victory. This one was over quickly, as the Phillies scored four…
