  1. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EST

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  2. The Indians are going to have an Albert Belle bobblehead day. And it’s glorious.

    Feb 14, 2013, 6:38 AM EST

    Albert Belle bobble

    Albert Belle was widely reviled when he played. He committed all manner of bad acts on and off the field and he really, really pissed off reporters. When he retired, Bill Madden wrote this: “Sorry, there’ll be no words of sympathy here for Albert Belle. He was a surly jerk before he got hurt and…

  3. GM downplays odds of Cardinals re-signing Kyle Lohse after Chris Carpenter’s setback

    Feb 5, 2013, 2:49 PM EST

    kyle lohse getty

    Today’s news that Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch in 2013 and may end up retiring seemingly opens the door for the Cardinals to bring back Kyle Lohse. After all, Lohse remains unsigned as the draft pick compensation attached to his free agency has scared teams off and the Cardinals wouldn’t have to forfeit a…

  4. Deep Thoughts: MLB Network and Miami edition

    Jan 31, 2013, 12:04 PM EST

    Newman Seinfeld

    Some random thoughts from a busy morning: I was on MLB Network’s Hot Stove this morning talking about A-Rod. In a lot of ways I was presented as the heel, in the pro wrestling sense. Or, as host Matt Vasgersian put it, I was the Newman to Ken Rosenthal’s Seinfeld. Which is about right, I…

  5. Angels finalize five-year, $125 million contract with Josh Hamilton

    Dec 15, 2012, 12:25 PM EST

  6. The Phillies are “asking around” about Koji Uehara

    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…

  7. The Dodgers are “aggressively pursuing” Torii Hunter…or not

    Nov 10, 2012, 3:59 PM EST

    Torii Hunter

    UPDATE: Hold your horses, everyone. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers’ interest in Hunter has been overstated. Hernandez hears that Hunter’s agent approached the Dodgers, who agreed to take a meeting with him. You know how agents used to try to get the Yankees involved in order to get other…

  8. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EST

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

  9. Jeff Nelson made one of the worst safe calls you’ll ever see

    Oct 14, 2012, 7:49 PM EST

    Omar Infante, Robinson Cano

    My belief isn’t that we need more instant replay in baseball because umpire’s are incompetent. My belief is that it’s needed because a lot of things happen in baseball that are way too tough to call at normal speed. This, however, was not one of those plays. In the eighth inning of Sunday’s ALCS Game…

  11. Why Roger Clemens is going to pitch for the Astros

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:13 AM EST

    Roger Clemens

    I was totally not surprised when it was revealed yesterday that the Astros are going to scout Roger Clemens’ September 7 start for the Sugar Land Skeeters. Heck, I was not surprised when the September 7 date was announced itself, because that set things up for a normal four days rest allowing Clemens to pitch…

  12. Dodgers set to get Gonzalez, Crawford and Beckett from Red Sox

    Aug 25, 2012, 8:23 AM EST

    Carl Crawford Getty

    8:23 a.m. EDT update: Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the deal is “pretty much done.” Beckett and Crawford have waived their no-trade rights and both teams have signed off on medicals, so we’re presumably waiting on approval from the commissioner’s office. 6:40 a.m. EDT update: According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, the blockbuster deal…

    Derek Norris

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  14. Kevin Youkilis expected to be traded soon

    Jun 23, 2012, 3:52 PM EST

    Kevin Youkilis Reuters

    UPDATE, 9:35 PM ET: According to Rosenthal, the Indians are now considered a “longshot” to land Youkilis and the Dodgers have only had “minimal contact” with Boston’s front office. It sounds like it might come down to the White Sox and Pirates. 3:52 PM ET: Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM…

Both groups have submitted bids of $800 million, which includes $600 million for the team and $200 million as part of the team’s TV deal with FOX Sports San Diego.…

  16. Barry Bonds appeals his conviction

    May 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Barry Bonds Convicted Of One Count Of Obstruction Of Justice

    Barry Bonds lawyers filed a 60-page brief yesterday, appealing his obstruction of justice conviction.  The heart of it is basically something we’ve noted here all along: that it’s pretty weird to convict someone for not answering a question when they actually, you know, answered the question: “Any competent English speaker would understand Mr. Bonds’s initial…

  17. Yoenis Cespedes signs with the Oakland Athletics

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:22 PM EST

    cespedes

    We weren’t expecting this:  Tim Brown of Yahoo! reports that Yoenis Cespedes is on the verge of signing with the Oakland Athletics.  Susan Slusser added that the deal will be for four years, $36 million. That’s a bit lower than anyone thought he’d get.  Is it possible that his short, lackluster stint in winter ball hurt…

    Toronto Blue Jays v St. Louis Cardinals

  21. MLB Network is going to cover the living hell out of the Hall of Fame vote announcement

    Jan 3, 2012, 1:39 PM EST

    Barry Larkin

    The “Powell doctrine” mandates the use of overwhelming and decisive force in order to achieve the stated objective. Based on the press release I got a few minutes ago, MLB Network adheres to that doctrine when it comes to coverage of the Hall of Fame vote announcement on Monday: The results of the 2012 National…

  22. Mike Cameron chooses Nationals over Indians

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    Mike Cameron

    Washington and Cleveland were reportedly fighting over Mike Cameron. I’m not sure if this qualifies as winning or losing the fight, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the 38-year-old outfielder has decided to sign with the Nationals. Cameron defied father time for years, remaining very productive offensively and excellent defensively into his mid-30s, but…
