    The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

    Jeff Luhnow

    That the Astros are in rebuild mode is no secret. In the past, they had been pawning off veteran players in an effort to usher in a youth movement, but GM Jeff Luhnow says the Astros aren’t likely to be sellers at this year’s trade deadline. Jesse Crain and Jerome Williams are eligible to become free…

    Brett Wallace

    To make room for free agent signing Jerome Williams on the 40-man roster the Astros have designated first baseman Brett Wallace for assignment. Wallace was once a top prospect, but it turned out he couldn’t really play third base defensively and never developed into the impact bat many people pegged him for in the minors.…

    Having finished with baseball’s worst record three straight years, the Astros have mastered the art of being bad. And it’s worked out for them; thanks to their early draft picks and some veteran-for-prospects trades, they now boast one of the game’s very best farm systems. That left the Astros with a decision to make entering…

  20. Jerome Williams got his wish

    Dec 3, 2013, 9:45 AM EST

    jerome williams getty

    Jerome Williams (or more accurately, mostly his agent) spent the past week talking about how he hoped to be non-tendered by the Angels because he believed other teams would be willing to give him a full-time rotation spot. And he got his wish last night, as they cut him loose rather than keeping the 32-year-old…

    The Angels signed reliever Joe Smith to a three-year, $15.75 million deal on Saturday, just a day after adding third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas in a trade for Peter Bourjos and prospect Randal Grichuk.
