  1. Dave Parker: Hall of Fame afterthought

    Jan 4, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Buster Olney doesn’t actually endorse Dave Parker’s Hall of Fame candidacy, but he does throw out a morsel to chew on, courtesy of the ESPN stats department: If you go on the idea of a player being a dominant player in his era being an important qualification: Dave Parker finished in the top five of…

  2. Nobody listens to Joe Girardi

    Dec 4, 2009, 12:15 PM EDT

    There’s a reason why the Yankees focus on free agent veterans: kids these days just won’t listen to Joe Girardi. The Yankee skipper tried to teach the Jets’ quarterback how to slide after getting his left knee banged up while pulling a Jim McMahon last week. So what happens last night? He forgets what Girardi…

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

    Sep 29, 2009, 5:38 AM EDT

    Angels 11, Rangers 0: The Angels clinch the West, and in a fit of wrongheadedness so comically tragic that it strains credulity, they soak the jersey of a victim of a fatal drunk driving accident with beer and champagne in celebration. Here’s hoping that someone in Angels’ management was passing out cab vouchers last night.…

  4. Does Derek Jeter have anything left to prove?

    Sep 11, 2009, 9:22 AM EDT

    SI’s Tim Marchman has a good piece up this morning in which he breaks out what the numbers and career progression would need to look like in order for Derek Jeter to pass Pete Rose for the all-time hits record.  Upshot: it almost certainly won’t happen, but it’s not impossible. Personally I’d like to see it simply because…

  5. Brian Roberts and the art of the two-bagger

    Sep 10, 2009, 12:37 PM EDT

    Last night Brian Roberts smacked his 50th double of the year, joining Hall of Famers Stan Musial, Tris Speaker, and Paul Waner as the only players in baseball history with 50-plus doubles in at least three seasons. Of course, while most fans can cite the significant homer records few people pay much attention to doubles.…

  6. Was Shoeless Joe innocent after all?

    Sep 8, 2009, 8:20 AM EDT

    My recent posts about Pete Rose led a lot of you to bring up Joe Jackson, either (a) in support of keeping Rose banned (“Rose shouldn’t be let in as long as Shoeless Joe is banned!”) or (b) as a second guy, in addition to Rose, who should be let in (“the Hall of fame…

  7. Bruntlett's jersey is Cooperstown worthy?

    Aug 25, 2009, 10:21 AM EDT

    We had quite a lively debate yesterday about whether Pete Rose should be in the Hall of Fame.  I’d have to guess, however, that even the most ardent Rose haters — of which I am not one, no matter what a lot of you think — would agree that Rose has a better claim to Cooperstown immortality…

  8. Link-O-Rama: Six more starts for Chamberlain

    Aug 20, 2009, 11:50 AM EDT

    * After meeting with manager Joe Girardi and pitching coach Dave Eiland to discuss his workload, Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to make six more starts this season. Chamberlain has averaged 5.5 innings per start so far, and if that continues he’ll end up throwing 160 innings spread over 29 starts after logging 100 innings between…

  9. Science proves you're not a Hall of Famer

    Jul 27, 2009, 10:26 PM EDT

      Somebody has been stealing your research money, and this is what they came up with: The Wall Street Journal reports that a pair of professors have invented a formula to predict whether a player will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Shockingly, it’s the players with awesome stats who will get in. But if…

  10. Mazzaro's career starts with 13.2 shutout innings

    Jun 8, 2009, 12:36 PM EDT

    A’s rookie Vince Mazzaro tossed 6.1 shutout innings against the White Sox in his MLB debut last week and followed that up with 7.1 scoreless innings against the Orioles yesterday afternoon. Mazzaro becomes just the ninth pitcher since 1954 to begin his career by allowing zero runs in back-to-back starts of at least six innings.…

  11. The Angels had interest in acquiring A.J. Burnett from the Phillies

    Aug 30, 2014, 10:20 PM EDT

    The Angels, searching for a rotation upgrade after losing Garrett Richards to an injury, had interest in A.J. Burnett of the Phillies, but the right-hander’s player option for 2015 was a deterrent.

  12. Report: The Braves and Cubs discussed a B.J. Upton, Edwin Jackson swap

    B.J. Upton

    Bob Nightengale reports that the Braves and Cubs nearly swapped beleaguered, expensive players in B.J. Upton and Edwin Jackson, but it never materialized.

  17. Orioles are now willing to give up their pick to sign a pitcher

    Feb 15, 2014, 11:20 PM EDT

    Ubaldo Jimenez AP

    The Orioles have arguably had the worst off-season of any Major League team. They had the much-publicized contract snafus with closer Grant Balfour and outfielder Tyler Colvin, backing out of contracts with both at the last minute. They traded closer Jim Johnson and, as some have stated, whiffed on the return. Most importantly, though, the…

  18. Is Derek Jeter the Most Important Yankee Ever?

    Feb 13, 2014, 9:23 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    The frustrating thing about the whole Derek Jeter conversation is that even if you — as I do — acknowledge him as an all-time great, inner-circle Hall of Famer and can’t find a bad thing to say about his professionalism, character or overall significance as a figure in the game, there are still people who…

  19. Phillies sign Ronny Cedeno

    Ronny Cedeno Getty

    Journeyman infielder Ronny Cedeno has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Phillies, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Cedeno split last season between the Astros and Padres, hitting .242 with three homers and a .617 OPS in 89 games for a disappointing follow-up to a very solid 2012 season with the Mets. At age…

  20. Rays sign Jayson Nix

    Jayson Nix, who spent the past two seasons as a utility man for the Yankees, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rays. Nix has experience all over the field defensively, including filling in for Derek Jeter at shortstop last season, but he’s a 31-year-old career .218 hitter and hasn’t cracked a .700 OPS…

  21. Royals sign Ramon Hernandez

    Kansas City has signed veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Hernandez is coming off a two-year, $6.4 million contract with the Rockies, but he only made it through one season in Colorado before they cut him loose. Last year he played…

    I feel like everyone is sick of Hall of Fame talk. Even those of us who never get sick of Hall of Fame talk. The announcement is at 2pm on Wednesday. But before then there will be hours and hours of Hall of Fame talk: The announcement will be part of a three-hour live show…

  23. Twins sign Kurt Suzuki

    Dec 20, 2013, 10:46 AM EDT

    Kurt Suzuki

    Minnesota wasted little time finding a new veteran catcher, adding free agent Kurt Suzuki one day after trading Ryan Doumit to Atlanta. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Suzuki and the Twins have agreed to a one-year deal and the 30-year-old will compete with rookie Josmil Pinto for playing time behind the…

    According to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, free agent Jeff Francouer recently had LASIK surgery and has decided to go to a lighter bat in an attempt to salvage his career. The soon-to-be 30-year-old Francoeur finished last season out of the league after being let go by the Giants in late August. On the heels of a…
