Nelson Cruz could be elected to the All-Star Game. Melky Cabrera and Ryan Braun, too. Shouldn’t the public be more upset about this?

Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was placed on the disabled list on Saturday morning with a broken left thumb that he suffered Friday night when he was struck by a Paul Maholm pitch. After a visit with hand specialist Dr. Tim McAdams, the situation is looking even grimmer.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle tweets that the Giants have considered free agent Mike Morse to fill their left field vacancy, but they think they can do a better job making a trade. Schulman added that he would not be surprised if the team made a trade over the upcoming winter meetings. Morse…

The worst part of narrative-driven sports journalism is that it usually results in those who engage in it bending the facts to fit the narrative rather than identifying a narrative that springs logically from those facts. As an example I give you John Feinstein’s column on the Nats. Which came out today, but which you…

The O’s could use a DH/corner bat and the Mariners have one. So this would make sense: Orioles are actively pursuing both Mike Morse and Oliver Perez of the #Mariners today, accdg to a source. Would like a combo deal. — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) July 31, 2013 As for Perez, the Orioles’ greatest strength…

First baseman Ryan Howard, 33 years old and still suffering lingering effects of an Achilles injury suffered in Game Five of the 2011 NLDS, should be on the trading block according to David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News. The lefty slugger entered tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks with a .262/.299/.476 line and is in…

A.J. Burnett turned in his third consecutive solid effort, holding the Reds to three runs over six innings tonight, striking out eight. Since 2000, there are only ten occurrences of a pitcher tossing at least five innings and striking out eight or more in at least his first three starts of the season. Randy Johnson…

Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

Justin Upton went 4-for-4 and homered yet again while Paul Maholm pitched one-hit ball for seven innings in the Braves’ 2-0 defeat of the Marlins on Monday. Upton leads the majors six homers, one more than Seattle’s Mike Morse, and he also chipped in with his second double tonight. He scored both runs for the…

Boston’s pursuit of Adam LaRoche ended with the signing of Mike Napoli, but the Red Sox are still talking to Nick Swisher, CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reports. ESPN’s Jayson Stark says the Red Sox are also considering Cody Ross and Shane Victorino as they seek to round out their outfield. Signing one player from that group…

The Rays just got James Loney, but ESPN’s Jim Bowden reports that the team is talking to the Nationals about a trade for Mike Morse and Danny Espinosa in exchange for pitching. Just because Loney is in the fold doesn’t mean this makes zero sense — after all, Loney is actually a downgrade from Carlos…

Jayson Werth still hasn’t been cleared to swing a bat yet 10 weeks after breaking his wrist on May 6, but Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the wrist is healed and the Nationals continue to target August 1 for his return date. According to Zuckerman “that may be a bit too optimistic, but the…

Six weeks ago Jayson Werth was given a 9-12 week recovery timetable for his broken left wrist and he’s basically still on that same track, with manager Davey Johnson saying yesterday that the Nationals hope to have the outfielder back around August 1. Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that Werth is no longer wearing a…

After missing the first 50 games with a strained lat muscle Mike Morse is off the disabled list and hitting cleanup for the Nationals tonight in his season debut.

Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia is having a pretty awful start to his season: .063/.118/.156 in 35 plate appearances. That’s pretty rough, especially because when you’re a major leaguer, people notice that sort of thing. Eric Mirlis of the New York Sports Exchange radio show noticed, and he tweeted about it, saying that Arencibia’s stat…

As expected Mike Morse will begin the season on the disabled list, with the Nationals making the move official today. Morse has been out since March 13 with a lat injury and received platelet-rich plasma injections as part of his treatment, but won’t have enough time to be ready by next week. Morse’s injury opens…

Fact: Mike Rizzo and the Washington Nationals have been Scott Boras’ huckleberry for a few years now. Nothing wrong with that. They’ve signed some great guys by being willing to play ball with Boras in ways that some teams have chosen not to. But it is pretty obvious that if Boras has a big name,…
