  1. Rockies decline $4.5 million option on Octavio Dotel for 2011

    Because he was traded during the season Octavio Dotel had the right to reject his $4.5 million option if it was exercised, but the Rockies made that a moot point by choosing a $250,000 buyout instead. Colorado acquired Dotel in mid-September and he wouldn’t have even been eligible for the playoff roster, so it’s no…

  2. Rockies may look to trade for Rays starter James Shields

    Colorado is hoping to re-sign free agent left-hander Jorge De La Rosa, but if his demands prove out of their price range Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies will look to trade for Rays right-hander James Shields. Many teams would be smart to target Shields, because he pitched much better than…

  3. Pirates’ manager search may be waiting for Clint Hurdle

    Despite wrapping up interviews with various managerial candidates two weeks ago the Pirates have yet to name a replacement for John Russell, which has Tracy Ringolsby of FOXSports.com speculating that they’re waiting for the postseason to end so they can talk to Rangers hitting coach Clint Hurdle. Hurdle was the Rockies’ manager from 2002-2009 and…

  4. Carney Lansford replaces Don Baylor as Rockies hitting coach

    Don Baylor

    Don Baylor is out as the Rockies’ hitting coach, which at first glance may seem strange after Colorado scored the third-most runs in the league this season. However, thanks to playing half their games at Coors Field the Rockies always score a ton of runs. In fact, they’ve finished among the league’s top five in…

  5. The Week Ahead: Like it or not, Interleague play is back

    May 16, 2010, 11:57 PM EDT

    Remember the novelty of Interleague play when it first came into existence back in 1997? Fans in Atlanta could see the New York Yankees in person. NL greats like Barry Bonds and John Smoltz would make appearances in AL cities. And places with multiple teams playing in separate leagues – like Chicago, New York, Los…

  6. Report: MLB to seize Rangers, complete sale, get sued

    May 3, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    That’s the logical conclusion if what Sports Business Journal’s Daniel Kaplan is reporting is true: MLB as soon as this week plans to dramatically alter the course of the standoff between creditors and the owner of the Texas Rangers, multiple sources said last week, a development that could include the league seizing the franchise. Were…

  7. The Week Ahead: Two big series for Red Sox

    May 3, 2010, 1:23 AM EDT

    The Boston Red Sox were swept by the Baltimore Orioles over the weekend. I’ll let you take a moment to read that again. Yes, we know that it’s a long season and teams have their ups and downs, but this is the Orioles we’re talking about. A team that was 2-16 not so long ago,…

  8. Tensions escalate between MLB and Dominican scouts

    Apr 26, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    MLB Trade Rumors’ Nick Collias continues to stay on top of the increasingly strained relationship between Major League Baseball and various baseball factions in the Dominican Republic. The latest: scouts have barred members of the Major League Scouting Bureau from watching players at several recent exhibitions on the island. In apparent retaliation, Major League Baseball…

  9. The Week Ahead: Cliff Lee to make Mariners debut

    Apr 26, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee was dominant in his rehab start on Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma, tossing six shutout innings against Salt Lake. The former AL Cy Young winner threw only 68 pitches, allowing three hits and no walks while striking out four. Two of the hits were a bunt single and a fly ball that the center…

  10. Catching up with Davey Johnson

    Mar 19, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    A profile of Davey Johnson in today’s Baltimore Sun.  Gotta love Davey, so it’s definitely worth a read. Johnson, as you probably know, is now a special assistant to Nats’ GM Mike Rizzo. And unlike so many special assistant jobs out there, his isn’t about glad-handing season ticket holders and stuff — he’s actually contributing…

  11. MRI on Huston Street comes back "clean"

    Mar 18, 2010, 8:40 PM EDT

    Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that an MRI on the right shoulder of Huston Street came back “clean.” This at least eliminates the worst-case scenario of season-ending surgery or something of that nature, but according to Heyman, the club “will take it slow with him” and “look for another reliever.” Obviously, Street’s chances of opening…

  12. Jimenez makes spring debut after traffic jam

    Mar 5, 2010, 9:59 PM EDT

    Ubaldo Jimenez was scheduled to make his Cactus League debut during Friday’s split-squad game against the Angels, but was delayed nearly two hours because of a traffic jam following a fatal bus crash that killed more than six people and left more than 15 people injured in an area just south of Tempe. Jimenez elected…
