    A week in the sun and warmth is over. A week of the hottest hot stove action in recent memory preceded it. It’s pretty easy to say that a great bulk of the work teams needed to do before Opening Day 2014 has been accomplished since we tossed the last of our Thanksgiving leftovers. But…

  2. Giants sign Michael Morse to one-year deal

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Looking to get his career back on track following a terrible season split between two teams, Michael Morse has agreed to a one-year deal with the Giants. Morse got off to a great start this year, but then hit just .201 with five homers and a .584 OPS in 64 games after May 1 while…

  3. The Mariners are making Jesus Montero and Justin Smoak available

    Not the biggest surprise in the world given that the M’s added Corey Hart and Logan Morrison yesterday, but: The #Mariners are letting teams know that Jesus Montero, as well as Justin Smoak, are available in trades. — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 12, 2013 Both would seem to be prime candidates for a change of…

  4. Report: The Mariners are still interested in Nelson Cruz

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    After shocking the baseball world by agreeing to a 10-year, $240 million contract with second baseman Robinson Cano last week, the Mariners reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Corey Hart today while picking up Logan Morrison in a trade with the Marlins. However, they aren’t done attempting to remake their offense. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick…

  5. Brewers, Rays and Pirates in the mix to acquire Ike Davis

    The Mariners took two first baseman off the board earlier today by agreeing to a deal with Corey Hart and acquiring Logan Morrison from the Marlins. Could Mets’ first baseman Ike Davis be the next domino to fall? While nothing appears to be imminent, Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio reports that the Brewers, Rays,…

  6. The Brewers are talking to James Loney

    Dec 11, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    James Loney

    The Brewers used to have Corey Hart at first base and tried to bring him back. Then they were rumored to be into Logan Morrison. The Mariners jumped in front of them on both counts because, apparently, they want all of the first baseman. Heck, they now have both of those guys and Justin Smoak.…

  7. Marlins trade Logan Morrison to Mariners

    Not satisfied with adding Corey Hart to the lineup today the Mariners have also acquired Logan Morrison from the Marlins for right-hander Carter Capps, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. Morrison has been mostly injured and ineffective for the past two seasons, hitting just .236 with a .708 OPS in 178 total games,…

  8. Mariners sign Corey Hart to incentive-laden deal

    Dec 11, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Corey Hart

    Corey Hart had an offer on the table to return to the Brewers following an injury wrecked season, but Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that he’s headed to the Mariners on a one-year deal. Hart missed all of this year, so it’s hard to guess where he’s at physically, but during the previous three seasons…

  9. Delmon Young working out at first base to pad resume

    Dec 8, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    You’re never too old to start learning how to play first base. Delmon Young, shockingly only 28 years old, has never played a single inning at first base in his entire professional baseball career, but he has been working out at the position lately in order to make himself more attractive as a free agent,…

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL — Greetings from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort, deep in the dark recesses of the happiest place on Earth. I have been down here with my children since last Tuesday, doing battle with a mouse. The mouse is a worthy adversary. Much respect for him and his hyper-efficiency at separating…

  11. Rays would like to bring James Loney back if he lowers his price

    Dec 7, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    James Loney

    First baseman James Loney had a career rebirth of sorts in 2013 with the Rays and the team would like to bring him back, but not at his current asking price, reports Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Loney is currently seeking a three-year, $27 million deal. If the Rays have to search for…

  12. Robinson Cano signing only bad if the Mariners stop now

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:14 PM EDT

    cano-110316.standard[1]

    No, there’s very little chance that Robinson Cano will resemble a $24 million player in 2023. But at least he’s better than that now. In a world in which Jacoby Ellsbury is worth $22 million annually and middle-rotation starters get $10 million-$13 million per year, it’s hardly unreasonable to value Cano as a $30 million…

  13. Corey Hart cleared for baseball activities

    Dec 3, 2013, 7:57 PM EDT

    Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that free agent slugger Corey Hart was cleared by a doctor on Tuesday afternoon to resume all baseball activities, mercifully bringing to a close his more-than-year-long recovery from both left and right knee surgeries. Hart can now begin showcasing himself to interested teams. The Red Sox, Giants, Rays and Rockies…

  14. Brewers GM Doug Melvin thinks the Mets could make a good trading partner

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    The Brewers need a first baseman, that much is obvious. Long time outfielder Corey Hart is one option, and one that Brewers GM Doug Melvin has certainly considered. Melvin, however, is looking towards the Big Apple as a creative way to round out his roster, noticing that the Mets will be open to moving Ike…

  15. The Phillies to sign Marlon Byrd to a two-year, $16 million deal

    The Mike and Ike Show on 94WIP in Philly is reporting that the Phillies will sign Marlon Byrd Ken Rosenthal has confirmed the deal. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.com reports that the deal is for two years, $16 million.

  16. The Mets are interested in Corey Hart

    Nov 6, 2013, 4:57 PM EDT

    Corey Hart

    Mike Puma of the New York post reports that free agent Corey Hart is drawing interest from the Mets. As are a dozen other teams, apparently undeterred by Hart’s multiple knee surgeries. The Mets seem like an odd pursuer. They have a lot of first base types with Ike Davis and Lucas Duda. Of course one…

    Robinson Cano

    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…

  18. Giants overcommit to Hunter Pence

    Sep 28, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    Now that he’s out from under the Barry Zito (seven years, $126 million) and Aaron Rowand (five years, $60 million) contracts, Giants GM Brian Sabean has the financial muscle to swing for the fences again. And the result: a five-year, $90 million contract for Hunter Pence. For Pence, is a windfall that certainly exceeds any…

  19. Corey Hart says he’ll take less money to re-sign with Brewers

    Sep 19, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    Corey Hart homers AP

    After missing the entire season following multiple knee surgeries impending free agent Corey Hart said today that he’ll take less money to re-sign with the Brewers. Hart is making $10 million this season in the final year of a three-year, $26.5 million contract and revealed that the two sides haven’t had any discussions yet, but…

  20. Do the Brewers want Corey Hart back?

    Sep 13, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Corey Hart Getty

    Corey Hart will head into free agency having missed the entire season following knee surgeries and numerous setbacks. Meanwhile, the Brewers have gotten horrendous production at first base in his absence. So will Milwaukee try to bring back Hart to fill the position next season? “We haven’t even begun to consider it yet,” assistant general…

  21. You can still get a Braun jersey at the MLB.com shop

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun shirt

    While the Brewers’ portal to the MLB.com shop area is now Ryan Braun free, the Braun jerseys themselves are easy enough to find and are still marked at full price. An authentic Braun home jersey costs $298.99 through MLB.com, the same price one would pay for a Brewers jersey featuring the name and number of…

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Rays 3, Red Sox 0: Matt Moore throws his first career shutout and it came in the first game of what, so far this year, is the Rays biggest series. Two hits allowed, one walk four strikeouts as the Rays cut a game off the Sox’ division lead, now sitting a half game back. Reds…

  23. What if the Brewers had kept Prince Fielder over Ryan Braun?

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:33 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder

    The truth is that the Brewers made their choice well before Prince Fielder signed with the Tigers two winters age. As a small-market team already pushing the payroll to the limit in 2010, the Brewers knew they’d have to decide whether to build around Ryan Braun or Fielder. What made it an easy choice was…

  24. Corey Hart to have surgery, is out for the season

    Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has the report: As it turns out, first baseman Corey Hart now is having trouble with his left knee — the opposite knee from the one that has kept him out all season following late-January surgery. Apparently, concentraing so much on rehabbing his “bad” knee caused the other one…
