    Not satisfied with the All-Star rosters? There’s one last chance to make a difference.

  2. Projecting the 2010 NL All-Star team

    Jun 22, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    With voting close at several positions, there aren’t as many sure bets for the NL All-Star team as the AL squad. That’ll make things a bit more challenging today. Still, I’m going to give projecting the 21 hitters and 13 pitchers a try. Catcher Locks: none Possibilities: Yadier Molina, Brian McCann, Miguel Olivo, Rod Barajas,…

  3. Your Tuesday Morning Power Rankings

    Jun 8, 2010, 10:23 AM EST

    Last week’s Power Rankings are all curdled and sour and are no longer fit for human consumption. Here are some new rankings, fresh out of the cow.  Or maybe it’s bull. You be the judge. Nevertheless, these rankings reflect data and impressions through play on Sunday night — which was when I came up with…

  4. So who's on the trading block?

    May 28, 2010, 3:15 PM EST

    Jon Heyman runs down the big ticket trade targets this summer.  Heyman’s candidates: Cliff Lee.  Makes sense to me on some level but I’m a bit skeptical. The Mariners are a disappointment this year, but I don’t think they’re a team that thinks it’s tearing down and rebuilding. If they have a chance to sign…

  5. And That Happened: Tuesday's Scores and Highlights

    Apr 21, 2010, 5:44 AM EST

    Braves 4, Phillies 3: Troy Glaus hit a two-out, two-run homer to kick off the comeback in the ninth, and Nate McLouth hit the walkoff job in the tenth, but make no mistake about it: Jason Heyward — whose two-out solo shot tied things up right after Glaus’ jack — is The Man. I keep…

  6. And That Happened: Monday's Scores and Highlights

    Apr 20, 2010, 5:45 AM EST

    Mets 6, Cubs 1: A pitchers’ duel until the 7th when the Mets unloaded on the Cubs’ bullpen, courtesy of an Angel Pagan homer, a Jason Bay double, an Ike Davis single and a Sean Marshall wild pitch. The Pagan at bat was hilarious. Jose Reyes was on first base, getting a few throws over,…

  9. Buster Olney defends his Pujols-Howard story

    Mar 16, 2010, 1:15 PM EST

    Everyone has had a lot of fun with Buster Olney’s report about the Phillies having internal discussions about trading Ryan Howard for Pujols.  Today Buster strikes back. After making it clear that he never said that any St. Louis-Philly negotiations took place and that neither team was inclined to make such deal, Buster says he…

  12. Winter meetings preview: NL teams

    Dec 6, 2009, 8:05 PM EST

    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…

  14. Pouliot's thoughts on Wednesday's moves: Andruw, Liz, Hulett

    Nov 25, 2009, 5:47 PM EST

    *White Sox sign outfielder Andruw Jones, who had been with the Rangers, on a one-year, $500,000 contract. Surprisingly, the deal includes just $1 million in incentives. Jones must have looked at what happened to guys like Jim Edmonds, Geoff Jenkins and Shannon Stewart last season and decided that taking an extremely modest deal was better…

  16. Link-O-Rama: Uggla expects to be traded by Marlins

    Sep 17, 2009, 3:22 PM EST

    * Due a big raise this offseason via arbitration, Dan Uggla indicated yesterday that he expects the Marlins to trade him. Uggla isn’t much of a defender at second base, but the former Rule 5 pick has posted an OPS above .800 in each of his four seasons in Florida while going deep 27, 31,…

  17. And That Happened: Wednesday's scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2009, 5:41 AM EST

    Cardinals 5, Brewers 1: Albert Pujols hits two homers and Adam Wainwright throws seven shutout innings to claim his 18th win. Tony La Russa was asked after the game if Pujols should win the MVP. What’s Tony say? “Those are the kind of questions that are distracting and I don’t answer them.” Pujols is hitting…

    Aug 19, 2009, 4:04 PM EST

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  19. And That Happened: Sunday's Scores and Highlights

    Aug 17, 2009, 5:32 AM EST

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: A lot of people experience anxiety about taking a day off work. They check their email a lot, allow themselves to be preoccupied, and generally feel as though the office can’t get by without them. This is baloney, of course. The world goes on fine without you. No one is so…

  20. Daily Dose: Beaning sends Wright to DL

    Aug 17, 2009, 12:05 AM EST

    David Wright spent Saturday night in the hospital after getting beaned in the head by a 94-mph Matt Cain fastball, but was released Sunday after being diagnosed with post-concussion symptoms. Corey Koskie’s career was ruined by the aftereffects of a concussion and the Mets saw how much it hurt Ryan Church last year, so certainly…

  21. Trade talk: What happened, what could've been

And while you’re contemplating the fortunes of your favorite team, let’s ponder the huge deal that was discussed on Friday. A deal that was closer to happening than anyone believed, including…

  22. Trade deadline winners and losers

    Jul 31, 2009, 7:47 PM EST

    So, I’m mostly trade deadlined out after about 90 tweets and writing up all of the finalized deals over at Rotoworld, but I think I have enough left for a winners and losers blog. I’m focusing strictly on Friday’s action. Looking at the big picture, I’d say the Pirates and Dodgers would also figure into…

  23. Trade talk: Roundup of Thursday's rumors

    Jul 31, 2009, 2:43 AM EST

    Thursday was a rough day for the Red Sox and their fans, for reasons we won’t get into here. It looks like they will dominate talk in the final hours leading up to the trade deadline as well. Pick a big name sitting on the block, and Theo Epstein appears to be feverishly working behind…

    Jul 30, 2009, 2:06 AM EST

    With Cliff Lee off to the Phillies, and Matt Holliday already making himself at home in St. Louis, the trade market has lost a bit of luster. But there is still a lot going on out there as we march closer to Friday’s trade deadline. Let’s take a look at what’s going on: ROY HALLADAYThe…
