    wrigley

    There are so many great ballparks in baseball right now, but Wrigley more than any of them – more even than Fenway Park, I think, though that’s a great debate – is the one that clings hardest to the past.

    Corey Kluber

    It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

    Every ten years or so, the Tigers get a walkoff grand slam. Like, every ten years or so, basically to the week.

    Clayton Kershaw no-hitter

    Clayton Kershaw was nearly perfect. And, at least by one measure, was better than a lot of guys who have thrown perfect games.

  13. Cubs hand fifth spot in rotation to Carlos Villanueva

    Carlos Villanueva didn’t exactly impress in his 17 2/3 innings in the Cactus League, but the Cubs’ other options didn’t fare any better. That’s why, as Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports, the Cubs have given the fifth spot in the rotation to Villanueva. Villanueva posted a 5.60 ERA during the spring. Chris Rusin,…

    Jake Arrieta was expected to compete for a rotation spot with the Cubs this spring, but it sounds like he’ll have to wait to get his opportunity. According to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said today that Arrieta felt shoulder tightness over the winter and is not expected to be ready…

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    The Cubs and 28-year-old reliever Pedro Strop have avoided arbitration with a one-year deal worth $1.325 million, reports Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. This was Strop’s first year of arbitration eligibility. The Cubs acquired Strop along with Jake Arrieta in a trade with the Orioles on July 2 last season. They sent Scott Feldman…

    Russell Martin

    The Pirates pulled another trick out of the bag tonight, hitting back-to-back-to-back home runs to erase a 3-0 deficit against Cubs starter Jake Arrieta. After Andrew McCutchen and Justin Morneau made two quick outs to start off the bottom of the fourth, Pedro Alvarez hit an inside-the-park home run to right-center. Russell Martin then cranked…

  18. Dodgers acquire Carlos Marmol from Cubs for Matt Guerrier

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    In a swap of relievers who were designated for assignment, Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that the Cubs have traded Carlos Marmol and about $200,000 in international signing bonus money to the Dodgers for Matt Guerrier. Marmol certainly has a lot more upside than Guerrier, who’s been little more than middle relief-caliber since signing…

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:49 PM EDT

    Trading season is officially upon us, as Keith Law of ESPN.com reports that the Cubs have traded right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger to the Orioles for right-hander Pedro Strop, right-hander Jake Arrieta, and about $400,000 in international signing bonus slot amount. It’s tough to have a good feel for how valuable the international…

    We heard yesterday that Edinson Volquez is drawing interest from multiple teams, but don’t take that to mean that the Padres are sellers. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Padres will attempt to upgrade their starting rotation leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. While the club currently sits at 38-38 on…

    Padres-Angels Spring Baseball

    MASN’s Roch Kubatko notes that Freddy Garcia may opt out of his contract with the Orioles after he makes his next start with Triple-A Norfolk, meaning the team will soon be forced to make a decision about the right-hander. The 36-year-old currently has a 2.61 ERA in 25.2 innings with a cool 16-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio.…

  22. Orioles demote Jake Arrieta to Triple-A

    Apr 22, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    Jake Arrieta

    Jake Arrieta has started 62 games for Baltimore since debuting as a 24-year-old top prospect in 2010, but the Orioles finally decided they couldn’t keep trotting the right-hander and his 5.40 career ERA out there every fifth day. This season Arrieta’s struggles have included a league-high 16 walks in 19 innings and that got him…

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house.
