    Magglio Ordonez‘s retirement inspired Trent McCotter of SABR to note that Ordonez ended his career with an 18-game hitting streak. That’s the longest streak at the end of a career ever, eclipsing the previous record holder, Ed Delahanty, who ended his career with a 16-game streak. This in turn led to some Twitter talk about…

  10. Running down the rosters: Oakland Athletics

    At least to the outside eye, it seems like the A’s have lacked a plan since they shipped off Matt Holliday after 93 games in 2009. It finally appeared that they were going for a full rebuild this winter, but after trading Trevor Cahill, Andrew Bailey and Gio Gonzalez, they re-signed Coco Crisp for $14…

  14. It’s probably not worth taking a flier on Manny Ramirez

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Tampa Bay Rays

    MLB did the fair thing Sunday, disclosing that Manny Ramirez would only have to serve half of the 100-game suspension he was set to receive before he announced his retirement last year. Still, how much of a favor that does the 12-time All-Star remains to be seen. The best Ramirez could do last winter when…
