  1. “Final Vote” balloting now open for 2012 All-Star Game

    Jul 1, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    final vote

    Major League Baseball revealed its 2012 All-Star rosters Sunday on TBS. But not everything is set for next Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City. Over the next week, online ballots can be cast to send one additional player from each league to participate in this year’s Midsummer Classic. MLB calls it the “Final Vote,” and…

  2. In which I still don’t get Jim Tracy

    Apr 7, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    Jim Tracy

    Earlier today I complimented Kirk Gibson on how he’s worked the No. 2 spot in the order in these first two games, using Chris Young against the righty Tim Lincecum on Friday and Aaron Hill versus the lefty Madison Bumgarner today. Rockies manager Jim Tracy, on the other hand, isn’t really looking for his No.…

  3. Kirk Gibson pushing the right buttons in Arizona

    Apr 7, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kirk Gibson

    Kirk Gibson appeared in over his head at times in the postseason last year, but now he’s back demonstrating why he was the 2011 NL Manager of the Year in the first two games of 2012. After not using him there all spring, Gibson inserted Chris Young into the second spot in the order Friday…

    Justin Upton, Matt Davidson, Chris Young

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Big Question: Was 2011 a fluke year? The Diamondbacks went from 70 wins in 2009 to…

  5. Running down the rosters: Arizona Diamondbacks

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Gerardo Parra, Chris Young, Justin Upton

    Give the Diamondbacks credit; even though all of the team’s key players were already under control for 2012, they didn’t stand pat after winning the NL West crown last season. In writing the team’s postmortem last October, I stated that adding a No. 3 starter had to be the priority. That’s what the team did…

    St. Louis Cardinals' Albert Pujols celebrates his single next to Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder in the 2nd inning of Game 3 of the MLB National League Championship Series baseball playoffs in St. Louis

    Instead of breaking the rankings up further, here’s the entire top 50. Links to the articles for free agents 111-51 can be found below. Again, I’m ranking the free agents based more on how I believe teams view them than how I see the players myself. Personally, I’d take a chance on Vladimir Guerrero over…

  9. Scott Boras takes some shots at the Diamondbacks and John McDonald

    Nov 5, 2011, 6:02 PM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Arizona Diamondbacks

    According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Scott Boras said his client Willie Bloomquist is drawing “a lot of interest” on the free agent market. Yawn. I can’t recall the last time Boras didn’t say that about one of his clients, so the real interesting part of this story is how he ended up…

    Justin Upton celebrates his solo home run against the Milwaukee Brewers with teammate Roberts in Milwaukee

    They were the comeback kids of 2011: the Diamondbacks won a major league-high 48 games in which they were trailing on their way to the NL West crown. Too bad that’s not the kind of thing a team can count on carrying over from year to year. Ian Kennedy, Miguel Montero, Ryan Roberts, Josh Collmenter, Gerardo…

    Three of the four Divisional Series are going the distance, as the Diamondbacks topped the Brewers 10-6 on Wednesday night to create a decisive Game 5 on Friday.

  21. The Diamondbacks pull off a crazy win over the Dodgers

    Sep 28, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

    Ryan Roberts

    The Diamondbacks are still playing for home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. And if they get it, they can thank whatever deity gave them their miracle win over the Dodgers last night. It was tied 1-1 after nine innings. When you see a game like that, you figure that it will…

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

    Aug 29, 2011, 5:35 AM EDT

    David Price

    Rays 12, Blue Jays 0: David Price was dominant, punching out 14 Blue Jays. Not literally. If he actually punched them out he would probably have been arrested. Rangers 9, Angels 5: Josh Hamilton and Elvis Andrus combined to go 6 for 9 with five driven in. Jered Weaver hung tough for a while on…

    Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion

    Four players have confirmed to ESPN that they’ve witnessed Blue Jays hitters being relayed signs from the center-field stands at Rogers Centre. An Outside The Lines reports details the allegations and an incident involving one of the players and Jose Bautista.  The report claims that a man in center field, situated perfectly behind the pitcher…

  24. John Lackey rocked again as ERA rises to 7.34

    Jul 4, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Boston Red Sox

    Last week John Lackey denied speculation that he may need Tommy John elbow surgery and then tossed 7.2 innings of two-run ball against the Phillies, but the Red Sox right-hander was back to his old tricks this afternoon. Lackey failed to make it out of the third inning versus the Blue Jays, coughing up seven…

    MLB sent 66 players to Phoenix today. Here’s 58 who can head to Siberia instead. Presenting your un-All-Stars. (I won’t be taking salaries or expectations into account. Playing time, however, will be a big factor. Basically, I’m looking for the guys who have done the most harm this year.) Catcher AL: Jeff Mathis, John Jaso…
