    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season.

  2. Dusty Baker thinks Clay Hensley pitched in the World Series

    I’ve always been confused by the notion that mediocre players somehow deserve extra credit for being on championship teams, which is a fairly prevalent cliche in all sports. You’ll see a random role player referred to as “a winner” all the time thanks to his having great teammates–count the ringzzz and all that–but this note…

    Jim Joyce

    If anyone was still holding the Armando Galarraga stuff against Jim Joyce, I believe the ledger is more than balanced by now. Scott Miller of CBS Sports.com reports: Joyce administered CPR to a Diamondbacks’ game-day employee in a tunnel leading to the umpires’ dressing room minutes on his way into the ballpark Monday, saving her…

    Let’s be clear about something at the outset: this is not the bizarro Armando Galarraga/Jim Joyce play. This is not an egregiously bad call that should have anyone renting one’s garments nor gnashing one’s teeth. But it is inescapable: Johan Santana caught a lucky break on a missed call in the sixth inning of last…

    Nearly two years after he was almost perfect against the Indians, Armando Galarraga has signed a minor league contract with the Astros. Galarraga owns a 4.69 ERA over 86 starts and nine relief appearances in the major leagues. The 30-year-old right-hander has a 5.10 ERA in 29 games since first base umpire Jim Joyce infamously…

    UPDATE: Barra responds. Fair enough: he’s not upset about the call, he’s upset at the media’s reaction to it, Fox not showing the reruns, etc. 10:31 AM: Because my parents had the kids and me over for dinner — and because my parents are old people who like to have dinner at 4:30pm — I…

    After sitting out the chase for Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, the Orioles are staring down a fifth straight last-place finish and a seventh consecutive 90-loss season. Such is life in the AL East. Rotation Jason Hammel – R Zach Britton – L Jake Arrieta – R Wei-Yin Chen – L Tommy Hunter – R…
