    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    When the Blue Jays signed Maicer Izturis to a three-year deal, $9 million deal in November the assumption was that he’d be their starting second baseman, but then two weeks later Toronto pulled off the blockbuster trade with Miami that brought in another option for the position in Emilio Bonifacio. Yesterday manager John Gibbons told…

  23. This just isn’t the time for Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:04 AM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    As far as I can tell, Alex Rodriguez committed two crimes this month. He played pretty horribly in the playoffs, which hardly put him among the minority of Yankees hitters, and he embarrassed his team by reportedly trying to get a woman’s digits from the dugout. In the case of the latter, absolutely no one…
