    You’re never too old to start learning how to play first base. Delmon Young, shockingly only 28 years old, has never played a single inning at first base in his entire professional baseball career, but he has been working out at the position lately in order to make himself more attractive as a free agent,…

  2. Rays would like to bring James Loney back if he lowers his price

    Dec 7, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    James Loney

    First baseman James Loney had a career rebirth of sorts in 2013 with the Rays and the team would like to bring him back, but not at his current asking price, reports Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Loney is currently seeking a three-year, $27 million deal. If the Rays have to search for…

    Robinson Cano

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  4. The Astros lost their final 15 games

    Sep 29, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Chris Carter

    The Yankees brought half a team to Houston, but that was enough to get a three-game sweep and conclude the Astros’ historic season with 15 straight losses. They’re the first team since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders to lose their final 15 games. The Astros ended up 51-111. They’re the 12th team since 1900 ever to…

  5. It’s great to have the Pirates back

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    At some point in the eighth inning, I remember going out to concourse of old Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta and watching Atlanta Braves fans slowly shuffle toward the exits and their cars and another long baseball off-season. It is all well and good to say that baseball fans should stay to the end but…

  6. Andy Pettitte solid in final start at Yankee Stadium

    Andy Pettitte Getty

    In his final start at Yankee Stadium this afternoon, starter Andy Pettitte went seven innings, holding the Giants to just two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out six. The lefty is scheduled to make one final start against his former team in Houston on Saturday. As good as Pettitte was, though,…

  7. Alex Rodriguez limited to DH duties due to sore hamstring

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Bothered by a sore left hamstring, Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start out of the DH spot this afternoon against the Red Sox. He’s nowhere close to 100 percent at the moment, as he had the chance to score the go-ahead run last night on a double by Robinson Cano, but had to…

  8. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

  9. Alex Rodriguez scratched from lineup with flu-like symptoms

    According to Chad Jennings of the Journal News, Alex Rodriguez was scratched from today’s lineup against the Orioles due to flu-like symptoms. In his absence, Mark Reynolds will slot in at third base while Lyle Overbay will play first base. Rodriguez is hitting .333 (7-for-21) with two home runs and four RBI during his current…

    Brandon Moss

    Athletics 14, Tigers 4: We had this game on for a bit, got bored and decided to watch some random stuff we had recorded. When the show ended we went back to the game to see the A’s up 14-1. Allison let’s out a big “oh for f***’s sake!” and quickly turns on the “Awesom-O”…

  11. Mark Reynolds is the Yankees starting second baseman tonight

    Aug 28, 2013, 5:37 PM EDT

    New York Yankees first baseman Mark Reynolds makes a sliding catch for the out against the Tampa Bay Rays during the first inning of their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    With Robinson Cano day-to-day after being hit by a pitch, Eduardo Nunez was supposed to play second base. Except, Eduardo Nunez was scratched just a minute ago so … Nunez can’t go. Mark Reynolds will play second. Let’s get weird. — Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) August 28, 2013   Dear Lord, this is going to be…

    Not every player in pinstripes is in celebration mode on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, infielder Jayson Nix was diagnosed with a fractured left hand after getting plunked with an R.A. Dickey pitch in the bottom of the second inning. Nix is going to be reevaluated on Thursday,…

    Aug 16, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    In the lineup at first base in his first game as a Yankee, Mark Reynolds made it count. Reynolds blasted a two-run home run to left field off of Felix Doubront in the second inning, bolstering the Yankee lead to 3-0. Meanwhile, outfielder Alfonso Soriano continued to stay red hot. The former Cub entered the…

    Aug 15, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that former Indians corner infielder Mark Reynolds has signed a deal with the Yankees. The Indians released Reynolds on Monday as he had been slumping badly, posting a .484 OPS since the start of June. Overall, Reynolds has a .680 OPS on the season with 15 home runs. The…

  15. Indians release Mark Reynolds

    Aug 12, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

    As expected no other teams wanted anything to do with the $2 million remaining on Mark Reynolds‘ contract, so he cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week and the Indians released him. However, now that Reynolds is available to sign with any team for any salary it seems likely that he’ll generate some…

  16. The Orioles want Mark Reynolds back for some reason

    Aug 8, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    mark reynolds getty

    Mark Reynolds was just DFA’d by the Indians. Now some old friends may want to bring him back into the fold: The Orioles do have interest in reacquiring Mark Reynolds IF the Indians secure trade waivers on him (which they have not done) — JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) August 8, 2013   I guess people skew…

  17. Indians designate Mark Reynolds for assignment

    Aug 8, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

    Mark Reynolds was supposed to provide a big right-handed bat in the middle of the Indians lineup, but after signing for $6 million he’s hit just .215 with 15 homers and a career-low .680 OPS in 99 games. And today the Indians designated him for assignment, cutting the 29-year-old loose following a 21-game stretch in…

  18. Could Babe Ruth make the adjustment to today’s game?

    Jul 5, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    Ruth Called Shot Baseball

    Fun article from Bob Klapisch talking about what it might be like for Babe Ruth to adjust to the modern game. Clearly there were huge differences: Ruth played only against white players, only played day games and didn’t have to deal with bullpen specialists. By the same token, what would he have been able to…

  19. Position player Casper Wells outpitches White Sox pitching staff in blowout

    Jun 28, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    The Indians and White Sox are slated to play two games tonight, but they may have exhausted all their weapons in game one. The two clubs combined for 29 runs over a nine-inning affair, hanging up crooked numbers in seven different innings as the Indians won 19-10. All but two members of the Indians’ starting…

  20. Indians call up Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A

    Jun 18, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Lonnie Chisenhall

    Lonnie Chisenhall began the season as the Indians’ starting third baseman, got demoted to the minors after hitting just .213 with a .604 OPS in 26 games, and is now back in the majors after crushing Triple-A pitching for a month. Chisenhall hit .390 with six homers and a 1.132 OPS in 27 games at…

  21. Trevor Bauer gives the Indians a really bad season anthem

    May 30, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Chris Perez is injured, I’m not sure that Mark Reynolds bats cleanup all the time and, frankly, Bauer’s flow leaves something to be desired. Bu I’m sure some people will like this:

  22. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  23. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 24, 2013, 6:59 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Boston Red Sox

    Indians 12, Red Sox 3: The Tribe’s bats had a nice night with Yan Gomes, Mark Reynolds and Michael Bourn all racking up multiple RBI. Oh, and you may or may not have heard this, but Terry Francona, currently the Indians’ manager, used to be the Red Sox manager and this was his first time back in Boston since he…

  24. Joey Votto reaches base six times as Reds rout Phillies

    May 18, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    If you needed a reminder that Joey Votto is the best pure hitter in baseball, you got one this evening as the Reds defeated the Phillies 10-0. Joey Votto came to the plate six times and reached base all six times, including a two-run home run in the top of the ninth that served as…

    Robinson Cano homered twice while David Phelps had the longest outing of his career as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Brandon Morrow, who was recently skipped twice in Toronto’s rotation due to neck and back tightness, gave up five runs in five innings in the loss. Cano did…
