    I wanna play poker with Jon Daniels. MLB.com’s Richard Justice talking about Rangers GM Jon Daniels in the Dallas Morning News: “I think Nolan Ryan leaving really put the pressure on Jon Daniels to make a dramatic move. He’s the only GM that I heard last week at the meeting saying, ‘Our needs can’t be…

    Sandy Alderson

    Mets GM Sandy Alderson recently said he won’t target players expected to take home a nine-figure contract, like Jacoby Ellsbury or Shin-Soo Choo, but he did state that the 2014 season will be “a new day” for the franchise. Newsday’s Marc Carig writes that Alderson spent 45 minutes on the radio, between WFAN and ESPN…

  4. Report: Mariners want Cruz & Beltran, not so much Ellsbury

    Nelson Cruz

    ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick has the Mariners aiming for a couple of outfielders, but not the center fielder they’ve long been connected to. #Mariners are ambitious: Heard they’d like to find a way to add both Nelson Cruz and Carlos Beltran. Hey, they’re trying. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) November 12, 2013 If what I’ve heard here…

    The Mets have some money to spend this offseason with the contracts of Johan Santana, Jason Bay, and Frank Francisco coming off the books, but don’t expect them to go after any of the big ticket items in free agency. Alderson pledges aggressive approach this winter but unwilling to go over $100 million for a…

    The Nationals acquired Denard Span from the Twins last offseason to serve as their leadoff man and regular center fielder, but they are already considering making a change.

    Curtis Granderson AP

    In a report which should come as no surprise, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News passes along word that the Mets have shown “preliminary interest” in free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson. It would be more noteworthy if the Mets weren’t putting out some early feelers, as they are known to be on the…

    Here’s the wrap on how Monday’s qualifying offer deadline went down.

  11. Tigers will be hard-pressed to make big signing this winter

    Nov 3, 2013, 7:10 PM EST

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

  12. Where will the Red Sox spend this winter?

    Masahiro Tanaka

    With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter. Even without signing any replacements, they have a perfectly legitimate 25-man roster ready to go: SS: Xander Bogaerts: $500,000 RF: Shane Victorino: $13 million…

  14. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EST

    131031-david-ortiz-dynasty-

    These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…

    World Series - St Louis Cardinals v Boston Red Sox - Game Six

    As the Red Sox celebrate their third World Series victory in a decade Wednesday, the likelihood exists that several key players won’t be back in 2014.

Ellsbury and Drew in particular delivered big games on Wednesday, with Ellsbury reaching…

    BOSTON — In between the third and fourth inning of Game 6, the Boston Police Department issued a statement that the Bars around Fenway Park were at full capacity so, please, don’t bother coming down here. Based on what I saw in and around Fenway Park this evening, I am 100% certain that no one heeded…

  20. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny not doing his team any favors

    World Series Red Sox Cardinals Baseball

    It started with the lineup: Mike Matheny chose to go with Shane Robinson in center field in Game 5 and had him bat second, with Carlos Beltran dropping into the cleanup spot. On the surface, it didn’t seem like a great move. Maybe it would have turned out better had leadoff man Matt Carpenter gotten…

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    ST. LOUIS — We thought of Game 1 as a battle of aces. It didn’t turn out that way. Game 5, however, gave us what we had been expecting. Adam Wainwright vs. Jon Lester and this time they were both on their game. But Jon Lester was better than Wainwright and, just as importantly, was…

    Going into his sixth-inning at-bat against Cardinals reliever Seth Maness, Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes was 0-for-10. He had reached base just once on a walk in the fifth inning. Fans complained that he had started Games 1 and 2 in lieu of Daniel Nava. He wasn’t even supposed to start Game 4, but Shane…
