    What if teams could not trade players or sign free agents? What if their roster was limited, for all time, to players they drafted and signed as amateurs and developed through the minors? What would that league look like? Domenic Lanza of It’s About the Money tries to figure that out, setting forth all home-grown…

    Jul 24, 2013, 7:07 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…

  4. Locking up Dustin Pedroia is more about sentiment than sense

    Jul 20, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia

    There’s something to be said for rewarding a star player who has been underpaid most of his career. Dustin Pedroia is one of the two faces of the Red Sox, he’s a legitimate All-Star candidate every year and it’s possible he’ll go into the Hall of Fame someday. If he were a free agent this…

  5. Freddie Freeman Mania! He leads Puig in All-Star final vote

    2013 All Star Game Logo

    I have this funny feeling that the MLB All-Star “Final Vote” thing — in which fans pick the last member of the All-Star roster — is ultimately gonna have Yasiel Puig join the NL squad. It’s what the league wants, what fans, on the whole, probably want and it’s what will prove to be more…

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

  11. Yasiel Puig named NL Player of the Week, then moved into cleanup spot

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Yasiel Puig was much more of a cleanup hitter than a leadoff man in his first week of the majors, and now he’s one officially, as the Dodgers have inserted him behind Adrian Gonzalez in Monday’s lineup. The lineup was announced not long after Puig was named NL Player of the Week for smashing four…

  12. Brewers’ Jean Segura is first in four years to collect six hits

    Jean Segura

    Jean Segura tied a Brewers record Tuesday by going 6-for-7 in a 14-inning loss to the Twins.  All of Segura’s hits were singles. The last was a liner to right that would have been caught by a better defender than Ryan Doumit, but it was still hit pretty sharply. It made him the first player…

    Adrian Gonzalez hit a homer in the first inning of last night’s Dodgers-Rockies game. He had what should have been a homer in the third inning too, but Dexter Fowler decided one was enough: The game was long and blah and most of the crowd left before it was over, but that is one nice…
