    Collin Cowgill’s walkoff homer in the 14th was something. Yoenis Cespedes’ throw in the eighth was even more something.

    On HBT Daily yesterday I said Johnny Cueto would give up more than two runs in a game before Masahiro Tanaka got his first loss. Both happened yesterday, but I’m pretty sure the Nats got their third run off Cueto before the Yankees-Cubs game ended, so I’m gonna claim victory.

    There are valid reasons for the Dodgers to bat Yasiel Puig leadoff this season, but this logic from manager Don Mattingly is interesting: Mattingly still thinking of Puig as leadoff man, says Puig "hasn't proven himself to be a RBI guy yet." — Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) February 22, 2014 According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com,…

    ellsbury

    These huge, later-career deals never turn out great. The best you can hope for when you sign a 30-something baseball player to a hugely expensive long-term deal is that he will have a couple of good years on the front end to boost up his value, have a nice rebound year somewhere in the middle,…

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Opening monologue: How many players in baseball history have a name as incompatible as “Prince Fielder?” Crazy, right? It would be like Bud Harrelson being named “Crown Batter” or Randy Johnson being named “Elfin Junkballer,” or Alex Rodriguez being named “Innocent victim.” Am I right? And what’s the deal with all the questions they ask…
