  3. United States loses, baseball wins at World Baseball Classic

    Mar 15, 2013, 11:07 PM EDT

    World Baseball Classic - Second Round - Miami - USA v Puerto Rico

    Let’s face it: the World Baseball Classic’s uphill climb as an event worth watching wouldn’t gain any momentum if Team USA ran away with it. That’s why it has to be pretty exciting for MLB to see Puerto Rico advance past the U.S. and join the Dominican Republic, Japan and The Netherlands in the WBC semifinals. While…

  4. Team USA considering Ike Davis to replace Mark Teixeira

    Mar 5, 2013, 11:23 PM EDT

    ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin spoke with “an official familiar with the process” on Tuesday night about how Team USA is planning to replace first baseman Mark Teixeira for the 2013 WBC. One option, the official confessed, is the Mets’ Ike Davis, an Arizona native. Though that same official noted that “a lot of names…

    Mark Teixeira

    Yankees and Team USA first baseman Mark Teixeira suffered a strained right forearm hitting off a tee Tuesday before an exhibition against the White Sox and will miss the World Baseball Classic. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, he’s currently slated to miss 7-10 days. FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi confirmed through an official that Teixeira would…

  6. With scouts watching, Rick Porcello turns in gem

    Mar 4, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Rick Porcello

    At least according to the numbers, Rick Porcello turned in one of the best outings of the spring so far Monday, striking out six in four scoreless innings against the Astros. The watchers were likely pretty impressed, too. With Porcello rumored to be available in trade talks, today’s performance came in front of a “ton”…

  7. Prince Fielder trains mixed martial arts with his kids

    Feb 28, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Jon Jones, Mauricio Rua

    Within a ClickOrlando.com story about the increasing number of kids getting into mixed martial arts is an interesting little tidbit about Prince Fielder, his kids, and being bullied: “It happened to me as a kid, and it happens to them as well,” says Prince Fielder, the All-Star first baseman for the Detroit Tigers. Even a…

  8. Octavio Dotel on Miguel Cabrera: “I don’t see him as a leader”

    Feb 20, 2013, 7:58 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Chicago White Sox

    Eric Adelson of Yahoo! was in Lakeland and he spoke to Tigers reliever Octavio Dotel. Who is still stinging, apparently, that his efforts to get Miguel Cabrera to be go all rah-rah team leadery during the playoffs last season were unsuccessful: “You have to step up and say something. Miggy’s more about his game. I…

  9. Mat Gamel is out for the season with another knee injury

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    gamel getty

    Mat Gamel aggravated his surgically repaired right knee over the weekend, but as of yesterday the Brewers seemed optimistic that it was a minor issue and he could resume workouts as soon as today. Unfortunately because Gamel has basically the worst luck ever Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that he’s going to miss the entire…

  10. Brewers revert to thrifty form

    Feb 9, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Ron Roenicke

    The Brewers’ offseason opened with speculation about a push for Josh Hamilton. 3 1/2 months later, their biggest pickup has been Tom Gorzelanny. Mark Attanasio’s Brewers won 96 games and went to the NLCS in 2011, and while the team lost Prince Fielder afterwards, it was able to bring in Aramis Ramirez as a replacement.…

  11. Brewers might give up a draft pick to sign Kyle Lohse if his price tag drops enough

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Kyle Lohse Getty

    Kyle Lohse‘s market has been crushed by having draft pick compensation attached to his free agency and as recently as three weeks ago he hadn’t received a single offer despite coming off back-to-back career-years. Lohse and Michael Bourn are the only two unsigned free agents who turned down $13.3 million qualifying offers from their original…

  12. Phil Coke, Prince Fielder talk to kids about bullying

    Jan 25, 2013, 8:28 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Last April Tigers reliever Phil Coke testified before a federal anti-bullying panel.  Coke and his teammates are keeping up the good work in this area as, yesterday, he and Prince Fielder went to a middle school to talk to kids about bullying: Loud cheers broke out when Fielder and Tigers pitcher Phil Coke took the…

  13. Michael Bourn is still waiting for some love

    Jan 20, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    Considered by many as the No. 2 free agent hitter available this winter, Michael Bourn has now gone three months with seemingly no market developing for his services. The Braves struck early to sign B.J. Upton to replace him. The Phillies also targeted Upton and then traded for Ben Revere after coming up short. The…

  14. Corey Hart to have knee surgery, miss 3-4 months

    Jan 18, 2013, 3:37 PM EDT

    Bad news: the Brewers just announced that Corey Hart will have right knee surgery next Tuesday. The recovery time: three to four months. Hart missed time last year with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. It was his first season as the Brewers’ first baseman, where he took over for Prince Fielder.  Mat Gamel will likely cover…

  15. Miguel Cabrera cruises to American League MVP award

    Miguel Cabrera AP

    The debate has raged on for months. And now we finally have a winner. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera was named the American League MVP this evening by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Despite the impassioned and often contentious arguments dating back to the summer, the balloting wasn’t all that close. Cabrera received 22…

  16. Torii Hunter signs a two-year, $26 million deal with the Tigers

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Torii Hunter

    It’s not 100% done yet — it’s pending a physical — but Ken Rosenthal reports that the Tigers have signed Torii Hunter to a two-year deal. The deal is for $26 million. Hunter and the Tigers are a perfect fit.  He can slide right in to right field — or left and can probably still…

  17. Brewers not working on contract extension with Corey Hart

    Corey Hart homers AP

    UPDATE: Both general manager Doug Melvin and Hart himself have denied Rosenthal’s report that they’re working on a new contract. ========== Corey Hart is heading into the final season of a three-year, $26.5 million contract and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that he’s “discussing a new deal” with the Brewers. Rosenthal writes that Hart is…

  19. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

  20. Two of Pascual Perez’s greatest hits

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Pascual Perez fight

    Still bummed over the news of the death of Pascual Perez.  When I first started thinking about him I, and probably a ton of other people, immediately first thought of him being lost on I-285, desperately looking for the ballpark and ultimately missing his start because of it. A ballpark that was not, it should…

  21. Autopsy Report: Detroit Tigers

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants pitcher Romo strikes out Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera to win the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    I prefer to think of this as an autopsy and not a eulogy, because an autopsy deals specifically with the cause of death. A eulogy, in contrast, takes in the deceased’s whole life and tries to draw some lessons from it. I don’t think anyone can draw any intelligent conclusions about the Tigers’ entire 2012…

  22. Miguel Cabrera, Tigers still wondering what hit them

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:53 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera walks back to the dugout after being called out on strikes to give the San Francisco Giants the World Series during Game 4 of the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    Triple Crown winner and likely American League MVP Miguel Cabrera took an 89-mph fastball from Sergio Romo right down the pipe to end the World Series on Sunday night. An 89-mph fastball. With Quintin Berry looking nothing like a major league No. 2 hitter ahead of him and Prince Fielder flailing away behind, Cabrera certainly…

    Posey Getty

    Buster Posey has had a pretty quiet postseason with the bat. But he just struck at the right time for the Giants. Posey turned on a Max Scherzer change-up in the top of the sixth inning for a two-run homer to give the Giants a 3-2 lead. The ball landed just inside the left field…
