  13. Pirates “continue to monitor” the Mets’ Ike Davis

    Feb 18, 2014, 6:23 PM EDT

    ike davis mets getty

    The Pirates got an underwhelming .768 OPS from the first base position in 2013 and lost Justin Morneau this winter to free agency. If the 2014 season started today, Gaby Sanchez and his .258/.337/.417 career batting line would be Pittsburgh’s primary option at baseball’s most premium offensive position. And that’s not ideal. According to Jayson…

    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe passes this report along in his always-info-packed weekly Sunday notes column: Kendrys Morales, 1B/DH, free agent — Morales fits what the Pirates need, a first baseman/middle of the order hitter. There’s mutual interest, but while the Pirates would love him on the right contract, they may also pursue a…

    You’re never too old to start learning how to play first base.

    Ian Kinsler

    Minutes ago, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that the Tigers and Rangers had been discussing a trade involving first baseman Prince Fielder and second baseman Ian Kinsler.

Pierzynski DH Nelson Cruz 1B Mitch Moreland LF Craig Gentry CF Leonys Martin P Martin Perez Cruz in the lineup will cause some moralists to get the vapors, but maybe they can fan themselves with the CBA…

    Sep 27, 2013, 6:32 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 6, Angels 5: They were up then down then bang! Jurickson Profar with the walkoff blast. This one would’ve been way easier, however, if Mitch Moreland, Ian Kinsler and Adrian Beltre all hadn’t committed errors in the second inning, allowing three unearned runs. But it was a must-win game and the Rangers won. Indians 6, Twins 5: A win,…
