  1. Quote of the Day: Peavy is '50-50' to pitch again this season

    Jul 16, 2009, 3:01 PM EST

    Padres general manager Kevin Towers, on Jake Peavy’s chances of returning from an ankle injury to pitch in the second half: I think it’s 50-50 if Jake will pitch again this season. We’ll know more when he comes out of the cast. I can’t speak for Jake, but I’d much rather have him ready for…

    Jul 15, 2009, 6:49 AM EST

    If you followed along with our liveblog last night some of this may be redundant for you, but I kept a quasi-running diary of the All-Star game and here are some of my random observations: Pregame – I really enjoyed all of the presidents talking during the Everyday All-Stars thing. Obama looks like he’s growing…

  5. 10 most likely to be traded – Relievers

    Jun 23, 2009, 5:43 PM EST

    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.…

  6. Projecting the NL All-Star roster

    Jun 1, 2009, 5:24 PM EST

    The current NL All-Star balloting totals are out, and it looks like shortstop and the third outfielder may be the only spots still up for grabs.

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

    Apr 3, 2013, 6:10 AM EST

    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 EST

    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…

    Twitter logo

    It seems like only yesterday … One year ago today, the #Marlins hired Ozzie Guillen to be their manager — Joe Capozzi (@joecapMARLINS) September 28, 2012 And now, 66 wins, 90 losses, and just a little bit of off-field drama later … well, there are only three years and $7.5 million left on his contract.

  10. Indians place Travis Hafner on disabled list with foot injury

    Aug 22, 2011, 4:53 PM EST

    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…

  11. Some initial post-trade deadline thoughts

    Jul 31, 2011, 5:18 PM EST

    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…

  13. Orioles ship Derrek Lee to Pittsburgh for Aaron Baker

    Jul 30, 2011, 11:38 PM EST

    Derrek Lee

    As we hinted a few hours ago, the Pirates are getting a first baseman. The Orioles have sent Derrek Lee to the Pirates for fellow first baseman Aaron Baker, a 2009 11th-round pick hitting .285/.353/.474 with 15 homers for Single-A Bradenton this season. Lee was always movable for the Orioles, but Baltimore pretty much had to…

  14. MLB tweaks the humidor procedure at Coors Field

    Apr 5, 2011, 9:33 AM EST

    Coors Field

    Last year there were rumblings — primarily from the Giants, but from others as well — that the Rockies were messing with the baseballs from the humidor at Coors Field, giving their pitchers the deader ones and the opposing pitchers the good old, high-flying dried out balls. Baseball now has a new policy, explained by…
