    Starlin Castro

    Making official what was first reported two weeks ago, the Cubs have finalized a seven-year, $60 million contract extension with shortstop Starlin Castro that includes a team option for 2020. Castro is making the minimum salary this season and would have been arbitration eligible for the first time next year. And as a “Super Two”…

    Bryce Harper has come back down to earth following a great start to his career, hitting just .214 with a .594 OPS in his last 40 games and .171 since the All-Star break. His overall OPS is in danger of dipping below .750 for the first time since May 19 and the 19-year-old told James…

  3. So far Bryce Harper is the best 19-year-old hitter of all time

    Bryce Harper

    Last night Bryce Harper launched a mammoth home run and then gave the leader in the clubhouse for best quote of the season, and he’s already followed that up by hitting a double this afternoon against the Blue Jays. Midway through his 41st career game Harper is now hitting .309 with a .391 on-base percentage…

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper joined Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones, and B.J. Upton as the only 19-year-olds to bat third in a big-league game since 1980, but now he’s on the move in the Nationals’ lineup again. Harper, who debuted as a No. 7 hitter before shifting to the No. 3 slot, is batting No. 2 tonight…

  5. Erick Aybar settled way too cheap

    Erick Aybar

    More power to him if Erick Aybar loves Southern California and didn’t want to play anywhere else. He still should have done better than $35 million for four years in his new extension with the Angels. $8.75 million per year is less than Julio Lugo got in his four-year deal with the Red Sox six…

    Edgar Renteria

    Two weeks ago Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported that Edgar Renteria planned to play this season, but that is apparently no longer the case. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com spoke to Renteria’s agent and writes that the 35-year-old “does not plan to play this season and is leaning toward retirement.” His lack of job options no…

  7. Edgar Renteria intends to play this season

    Edgar Renteria

    You know someone we haven’t heard much about lately? Edgar Renteria. There was a report in early December that the Royals met with his agent at the Winter Meetings, but they ultimately signed Yuniesky Betancourt to serve as a backup infielder. Getting passed over for Yuni? That’s a real blow to the ego. Even though…

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Zack Cozart was in attendance at Redsfest yesterday and confirmed to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that he was cleared to resume full baseball activities beginning Monday. Cozart suffered a season-ending injury to his left (non-throwing) elbow in mid-July and eventually underwent Tommy John surgery in August. “It’s been rehab for three months ever since the…

    General manager Walt Jocketty revealed last week that he’d talked to Edgar Renteria‘s agent and today John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that “it’s believed that the Reds have an offer out to” the veteran shortstop. Last month the Giants reportedly offered Renteria a one-year, $1 million deal to re-sign after winning World Series…

  10. Giants offer to bring back World Series MVP Edgar Renteria as a bench player

    Renteria running

    Last month the Giants declined their $10.5 million 2011 option on Edgar Renteria just three days after he was named World Series MVP, but John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports they’ve offered him a one-year contract “to be a utility infielder.” Renteria has never started a game at a position other than shortstop…

    Conor Glassey of Baseball America dug through the magazine’s archives and found their scouting report on a 20-year-old Edgar Renteria from 1995, when he was the No. 1 prospect in the Marlins’ farm system and about six months from his big-league debut. The whole thing is definitely worth reading, but here are a few particularly…

  12. Pitchers’ duel turns into a laugher as Giants take 2-0 lead

    You wouldn’t know it by the lopsided 9-0 final score, but Game 2 of the World Series was actually an outstanding pitchers’ duel for six-and-half innings Thursday night. Seriously. Matt Cain extended his postseason scoreless streak to 21.1 innings with his third straight gem and C.J. Wilson nearly matched him pitch for pitch before exiting…
