    A.J. Preller

    It’s been nearly 48 hours since the Padres’ last deal. A.J. probably has the shakes.

    Clint Barmes

    The Padres began their overhaul shortly after signing Clint Barmes to a one-year deal. He wasn’t quite expecting to be on a team expected to seriously contend with the Dodgers in the NL West.

  13. Buster Olney doesn’t think Vizquel, Tejada, Nomar were shortstops

    Feb 24, 2014, 6:00 PM EDT

    Buster Olney

    Let the record show that I gave fair warning: I thought Buster Olney might adjust his lists from Monday’s ESPN Insider column after being presented with the glaring omissions. Alas, I was ignored. The bulk of Olney’s column today was designed to point out how totally not overrated Derek Jeter is. He dives into the…

  14. Pirates re-sign Robert Andino

    andino getty

    Pittsburgh has re-signed veteran infielder Robert Andino to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training. Andino was traded from the Mariners to the Pirates in July, but spent the final two months of the season at Triple-A. He was a regular for the Orioles in 2011 and 2012, totaling 942 plate appearances while…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

  16. Pirates re-sign Clint Barmes

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Clint Barmes has had back-to-back terrible seasons for the Pirates, hitting a combined .221 with a .579 OPS in 252 games, but Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that Pittsburgh has re-signed the 35-year-old shortstop for $2 million. Obviously the Pirates like Barmes for his defense, which has always been strong, although at age 35 that’s…

  17. “A bunch of teams moving quick” on Stephen Drew

    Nov 10, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

    stephen drew throwing getty

    Because he received a qualifying offer from the Red Sox and signing him will require the forfeiture of a top draft pick, there was some thought that free agent shortstop Stephen Drew might struggle to attract multiple lucrative offers on the open market this offseason. But that apparently won’t be the case. A source told…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  19. Top-of-the-order struggles doom Pirates in NLDS

    Oct 9, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Division Series - Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    It was the bats that failed the Pirates in the end. Starling Marte finished the NLDS 1-for-19 with one walk and a hit by pitch from the leadoff spot. Neil Walker, right behind him batting second, was 0-for-19 with two walks. It’s tough to generate much offense when your top two hitters reach base a…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    The Pirates put a bunch of runners on base in the bottom of the sixth inning and in doing so, chased Cardinals starter Joe Kelly. Andrew McCutchen led off the inning with a walk. Following a lazy fly out by Justin Morneau, Marlon Byrd continued his torrid hitting with a double to left, putting runners…

  25. Pirates bench shortstop Clint Barmes for Game 2

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Clint Barmes was the Pirates’ primary shortstop this season, but after going 0-for-2 with an error against the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLDS manager Clint Hurdle has decided to bench him for Game 2. Jordy Mercer will start at shortstop, which is definitely an offense-for-defense swap. Mercer hit .285 with eight homers and…
