  2. The Tigers have expressed no interest in Damon

    Jan 15, 2010, 3:12 PM EDT

    As I’ve said over and over again, when you get a Jon Heyman-reported, almost-nothin’-to-it rumor connecting a Scott Boras client to a second team there’s a more than decent chance it’s noise designed to trick the first team into thinking it’s a bidding war.  Damon’s talking to the Braves, and then suddenly the Tigers are…

  4. Are the playoffs fair?

    Oct 7, 2009, 9:20 AM EDT

    I’ve been going on for years about how the playoffs are a total crap shoot and how they rarely if ever guarantee that the best team makes it to the World Series, let alone wins it. Of course, I’m also a Braves fan, so it’s fair for you to ask whether or not my complaints are…

  5. Daily Dose: High Five for Buchholz

    Sep 30, 2009, 12:56 AM EDT

    Clay Buchholz pitched his way into the Red Sox’s postseason rotation by going 7-3 with a 3.21 ERA through 14 starts, but turned in a disastrous outing Tuesday against the Blue Jays. Buchholz served up a career-high five homers after allowing a total of seven long balls through his first 84 innings this year, coughing…

  6. Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 111-91

    Sep 17, 2009, 4:27 PM EDT

    Welcome to a revised and slightly expanded edition of the Top 100 Free Agents. Now it’s 111 free agents-to-be. With four months more to go on, there have been a lot of changes that this article was first published in May. Along with each player’s age, as of April 1, 2010, I’ll be noting where…

  7. 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…

  8. And That Happened: Tuesday's scores and highlights

    Jul 29, 2009, 5:09 AM EDT

    Padres 3, Reds 2: If the recaps suffer a bit today it’s because I was at a bar saying goodbye to a good friend last night (a friend longtime ShysterBall readers will remember, actually). Mark and I used to work at the same law firm together, and once I left at the end of last…

  9. And That Happened: Tuesday's scores and highlights

  10. Has Hochevar turned the corner with back-to-back strong starts?

    Jul 27, 2009, 12:38 PM EDT

    Prior to last week Luke Hochevar seemed destined for a career as a solid but unspectacular mid-rotation starter, which while certainly not a bad thing would qualify as a big disappointment for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft. Hochevar had a mediocre 92/39 K/BB ratio in 123 innings at Triple-A and then…

  11. And That Happened: Monday's scores and highlights

    Jul 21, 2009, 5:48 AM EDT

    Pirates 8, Brewers 5: Pittsburgh snaps their 17-game skid against Milwaukee, and the Brewers look pretty damn immature in defeat, plunking Jeff Karstens in what I guess was retaliation for him hitting Ryan Braun back in April. This despite the fact that they hit three Pirates the day after the Braun thing, and had an…

  12. Daily Dose: Brewers add Lopez at second base

    Jul 19, 2009, 11:48 PM EDT

    Craig Counsell and Casey McGehee have done a nice job platooning at second base following Rickie Weeks’ season-ending wrist surgery, but the Brewers went for a change anyway Sunday by acquiring Felipe Lopez from the Diamondbacks for a pair of marginal prospects in Cole Gillespie and Roque Mercedes. Lopez hit .305/.368/.416 in 84 games with…

  13. Daily Dose: Sell high for the second half

    Jul 14, 2009, 12:06 AM EDT

    While the baseball world pauses for the All-Star break, here are a dozen players who fantasy owners should be looking to cash in for maximum value … Jason Bartlett – Bartlett is batting .347 compared to his career mark of .286 and has already homered eight times in 68 games after never going deep even…

  14. Daily Dose: Second opinion for Beltran

    Jun 30, 2009, 1:44 AM EDT

    Placed on the disabled list last week with a bone bruise in his right knee, Carlos Beltran is currently in Colorado being examined by the same doctor who did Alex Rodriguez’s hip surgery. Assistant general manager John Ricco denied Monday that surgery has been discussed as an option for Beltran, but also described the injury…

  15. Stick a fork in 'em – the 2009 Nationals

    Jun 15, 2009, 4:48 PM EDT

    It could have been done before the end of April, but I didn’t have the idea for the segment back then. So let’s officially declare the Nationals dead for 2009 and look ahead to 2010. The 2010 depth chart Catcher: Jesus Flores (Arb.), Wil Nieves (Arb.), Josh Bard (Arb.), Luke Montz Flores, who hit .311/.382/.522…

  16. Daily Dose: Big Papi heating up

    Jun 12, 2009, 1:06 AM EDT

    David Ortiz has finally broken free of his season-long slump, taking CC Sabathia deep Thursday for his third homer in five games. It’s certainly not time to say that Big Papi is back to his usual self yet, but he’s now 9-for-29 (.310) with three long balls already this month after batting .185 with one…

  17. And so it begins: Boras starts to over-sell Strasburg

    Jun 10, 2009, 3:52 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg and agent Scott Boras held a media conference call this afternoon and Boras predictably explained to all the reporters on the line that Strasburg is “a different breed of cat” and worthy of a mold-breaking signing bonus. Here’s more from the agent who’s never met a player he couldn’t over-sell: I don’t think…
