    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…

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

    Nov 25, 2009, 5:47 PM EDT

    *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…

    Sep 17, 2009, 3:22 PM EDT

    * 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,…

    Aug 19, 2009, 4:04 PM EDT

    Aug 17, 2009, 5:32 AM EDT

    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…

  9. Daily Dose: Beaning sends Wright to DL

    Aug 17, 2009, 12:05 AM EDT

    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…

  11. Trade deadline winners and losers

    Jul 31, 2009, 7:47 PM EDT

    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…

    Jul 31, 2009, 2:43 AM EDT

    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 15, 2009, 6:49 AM EDT

  19. 10 most likely to be traded – Relievers

    Jun 23, 2009, 5:43 PM EDT

    Huston Street (Rockies) – Street appeared to be a lock to go a few weeks ago, and it seemed likely that the Rockies wouldn’t even wait until the deadline before making a move. However, their recent surge, combined with the loss of former closer Manny Corpas, is going to make trading him much more difficult.…

  20. Projecting the NL All-Star roster

    Jun 1, 2009, 5:24 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers pitcher Darvish reacts after a hit by Houston Astros' Gonzalez goes through his legs in their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    Rangers 7, Astros 0: Part of me feels like if the Rangers didn’t score all those runs in the eighth and ninth innings that Darvish would have been fresher and finished this thing off. Part of me feels like if he wasn’t facing the Astros that it would have been over in the sixth. But…

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Koji Uehara

    Random middle reliever rumors don’t exactly jazz me, but I like it when they remind me of fun things. So, from Rosenthal: The Phillies, in their search for a setup man, are asking around about Rangers righty Koji Uehara, whose $4 million salary in 2013 might be more than Texas is willing to pay. I like…

    Travis Hafner

    Travis Hafner exited yesterday’s game with a sprained right foot and the Indians have placed the designated hitter on the disabled list. Hafner also missed time with a foot injury in April and spent a month on the DL with an oblique strain around midseason, but he’s been very productive when healthy enough to be…

  25. Some initial post-trade deadline thoughts

    Jul 31, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    - I was stunned that the Yankees didn’t make so much as a minor deal, but they definitely stand out as obvious candidates to be busy in August.  Just how busy could hinge on Rafael Soriano‘s performance.  Still, whether it’s Wandy Rodriguez — who could clear waivers and again become a possibility to be dealt as soon as Wednesday…
