  1. Miguel Cabrera named Player of the Year by his peers

    Nov 5, 2012, 9:57 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera Getty

    We have to wait until next week for the awards voted on by the writers, but the Players Choice Awards were announced earlier tonight on MLB Network. Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera was voted as the Player of the Year by his peers, beating out finalists Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen. So, um, cue the…

  2. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  3. Gavin Floyd may not be long for Chicago with White Sox open to trading starting pitching

    Nov 5, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    After picking up Gavin Floyd‘s option and signing Jake Peavy to a two-year contract the White Sox have more rotation depth than most teams and new general manager Rick Hahn is hinting that he might shop a starting pitcher for help in other areas. “I suspect given this market for pitchers that is out there…

  4. Brett Myers is open to being a starter or a reliever

    Nov 3, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

    Brett Myers Getty

    The White Sox declined Brett Myers‘ $10 million club option for 2013 earlier this week, instead paying him a $3 million buyout. Now that he’s a free agent, Myers tells Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com that he’s willing to market himself as both a starting pitcher and a reliever this winter. “I’ve got the mentality, I…

  5. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    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,…

  6. White Sox interested in re-signing Kevin Youkilis after declining his option

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Chicago declined its $13 million option on Kevin Youkilis earlier this week, buying him out for $1 million instead, but the White Sox are interested in bringing him back at a reduced salary. New general manager Rick Hahn said during a radio interview with ESPN-1000 that he laid out the situation to Youkilis when informing…

  7. John Danks ahead of schedule in recovery from surgery

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    John Danks

    By bringing back Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd the White Sox now have five starters in place even with John Danks out following shoulder surgery. However, it sounds like Danks might be back on the mound sooner than initially expected. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Danks has already started a throwing program three months…

  8. “Pursuing A-Rod makes sense for the Phillies”

    Oct 31, 2012, 4:39 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    It’s the offseason and free agents can’t even sign yet, so what better time to start some good old fashioned shootin’-the-poop over almost certainly not going to happen roster moves? Today: Corey Seidman and the CSNPhilly.com gang talking about A-Rod to the Phillies! Pursuing A-Rod makes sense for the Phillies, who have a glaring hole…

    Major League Baseball is revealing the 2012 Gold Glove Award recipients tonight during an hour-long program on ESPN2. We’ll list this year’s winners below as they are announced.

  10. White Sox sign Jake Peavy to $29 million contract, decline Kevin Youkilis’ option

    Oct 30, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    The White Sox’s 2013 rotation is set to look a whole lot like the 2012 group after all. The team today re-signed Jake Peavy to a tw0-year, $29 million deal and picked up Gavin Floyd‘s $9.5 million option for 2013. The team also announced that it had declined Kevin Youkilis‘ $13 million option and Brett…

  11. Gold Glove finalists announced

    Oct 29, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

  12. Who are these agents and executives anyway?

    Oct 28, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    The following passage on a couple of free agent pitchers is from Buster Olney’s ESPN Insider column Saturday: [Anibal] Sanchez could get anywhere from $30 million to $60 million as a free agent, some agents and executives predict, and Kyle Lohse could get a deal in the $77.5 million range, as C.J. Wilson did last…

    I’ll be doing some projection reviews over the next couple of weeks, starting with catcher here. Along with running down my preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each position, I’ll also present a few more that are of interest. Requests of players not listed can be made in the comments. 1. Carlos Santana –…

  16. Marco Scutaro named NLCS MVP

    Oct 23, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT

    Marco Scutaro Reuters

    Who else were you expecting? The Giants defeated the Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 of the NLCS tonight and the MVP of the series was a pretty easy call. Marco Scutaro, who managed to stay in the lineup after Matt Holliday‘s takeout slide in Game 2, was named the MVP after hitting a scorching .500…

  17. This just isn’t the time for Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    As far as I can tell, Alex Rodriguez committed two crimes this month. He played pretty horribly in the playoffs, which hardly put him among the minority of Yankees hitters, and he embarrassed his team by reportedly trying to get a woman’s digits from the dugout. In the case of the latter, absolutely no one…

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    At least part of it?  Here’s some speculation from Heyman that actually makes sense: The White Sox would like to re-sign third baseman Kevin Youkilis. But some see the rival Indians, who’ve hired his friend Terry Francona to manage, as a potential threat to try to sign Youkilis now. The Indians’ interest is mostly in the speculative…

  19. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    trout getty

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

  20. When’s the last time the Yankees were such big underdogs?

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    underdog

    Justin Verlander and the Tigers are -180 favorites against the Yankees tonight, which means someone betting on Detroit would have to risk $180 to win $100 and for that bet to be profitable the Tigers would have to win 65 percent of the time. That got me thinking about the last time the Yankees were…

  22. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Oct 4, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 12, Rangers 5: Oakland shocks the world. No one on the planet had them pegged as a playoff team and, as recently as a week ago, no one figured they had a chance in hell at the division crown. Well, that’s what you get for pegging and figuring. As for the Rangers … just,…

  23. Dunn, Granderson have worst ever 40-homer seasons

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    By OPS anyway. Adam Dunn and Curtis Granderson both entered Wednesday’s season finales with .800 OPSs. Dunn didn’t play and thus avoided overtaking Mark Reynolds for the single-season strikeout record (he had 222, Reynolds finished with 223 in 2009). Granderson did play and hit two more homers to finish with 43 homers and an .811…

  24. Dan Johnson hits first three homers on season’s final day

    Oct 3, 2012, 10:47 PM EDT

    Dan Johnson

    Sure, Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown. But that’s only because no one wanted to give Dan Johnson 550 at-bats. Johnson hit his first three homers of the season for the White Sox in a 9-0 win over the Indians on Wednesday. He took David Huff deep in the second and fifth innings and then…

  25. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Oct 3, 2012, 6:09 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…
