    Evan Longoria

    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 2014 season. Next up: The Tampa Bay Rays. The Big Question: Is this a championship offense? The Rays have led the American League in ERA…

  17. The Astros are playing dirty pool with a top prospect

    Mar 19, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    George Springer

    We know this is how it works. Phenoms get fewer September callups than they used to, and they rarely debut on Opening Day. Instead, it’s June that’s become the popular time for debuts, all in the name of delaying arbitration and free agency eligibility. On the one hand, it kind of sucks: much of the…

    Grady Sizemore, who turned down a deal with the Reds to sign a $750,000 contract with the Red Sox, arrived at spring training yesterday and sounded pretty optimistic about his health status after sitting out all of 2012 and 2013.

  20. Three thoughts on what ‘valuable’ means (yes, it’s more AL MVP discussion)

    Nov 15, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    miguel cabrera getty

    So here’s the explanation from Bill Ballou of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, who voted Mike Trout 7th on his MVP ballot: I am a strict constructionist re: “valuable”. If the award were Player of the Year, Trout would get my vote. I’m of the school that in order to have “value” you have to…

  21. Trout? Cabrera? Doesn’t matter much. They both had MVP seasons

    Nov 15, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    A quick thought on the Miguel Cabrera-Mike Trout MVP race. As you might know, I had a vote this year. And I voted for Trout. I suppose that won’t be a shocker for anyone on this site. I’ve never hidden my strong opinion that while Cabrera’s the best hitter in the game, Trout is the best…

Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…
