    Indians celebration

    The Tribe walks off against Texas, MadBum was dominant and V-Mart goes yard again. Note: if you were not a baseball fan, you would have no idea what any of the stuff in the previous sentence meant. It’s just barely English, yet we all get it. Cool, huh?

  2. Scott Kazmir is back and better than ever

    Jun 20, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

    Scott Kazmir

    Scott Kazmir finished last season very strong with a 2.57 ERA and 43/4 K/BB ratio in five September starts and pitched well overall for the Indians, but when it came time to cash in as a free agent teams proved skeptical about his career being back on track after he fell all the way down to independent ball.

    You could hear the collective shriek from Orioles fans on Sunday when Nelson Cruz was struck on the left hand by a Scott Feldman fastball. But all is well. Cruz is in the Orioles’ starting lineup for Tuesday night’s series-opener against the Rangers.

    Freddie Freeman

    Lots of shutouts and a handful of two-homer games. And one game that looked Xeroxed from another.

    Kemp Ramirez

    Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season.

  11. Astros choose Scott Feldman as Opening Day starter

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Scott Feldman

    Houston has named Scott Feldman as its Opening Day starter after signing the veteran right-hander to a three-year, $30 million contract as a free agent this offseason. Feldman is 31 years old with a 4.62 career ERA and it would be easy to make some jokes about him being the Astros’ choice, but whatever. They’re…

  12. Jeff Samardzija on extension talks with Cubs: emotional attachment “only goes so far”

    The Cubs and starter Jeff Samardzija recently agreed to a salary of $5.345 million for the 2014 season to avoid arbitration. It offered nothing in the way of progress between the two sides, who have been discussing a multi-year contract extension. The Cubs reportedly offered the right-hander $55 million over five years back in December,…

  13. Jake Arrieta expected to miss start of season after bout with shoulder soreness

    Jake Arrieta was expected to compete for a rotation spot with the Cubs this spring, but it sounds like he’ll have to wait to get his opportunity. According to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said today that Arrieta felt shoulder tightness over the winter and is not expected to be ready…

  14. What are the Astros aiming for exactly?

    astros logo new

    Having finished with baseball’s worst record three straight years, the Astros have mastered the art of being bad. And it’s worked out for them; thanks to their early draft picks and some veteran-for-prospects trades, they now boast one of the game’s very best farm systems. That left the Astros with a decision to make entering…

  15. Cubs sign Pedro Strop to a one-year deal to avoid arbitration

    Jan 17, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    The Cubs and 28-year-old reliever Pedro Strop have avoided arbitration with a one-year deal worth $1.325 million, reports Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. This was Strop’s first year of arbitration eligibility. The Cubs acquired Strop along with Jake Arrieta in a trade with the Orioles on July 2 last season. They sent Scott Feldman…

    Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News shares the update: The Texas Rangers acknowledged on Tuesday that left-hander Derek Holland underwent micro-fracture surgery on the left knee last week. The procedure underscores why the Rangers have said they are planning on Holland to be out until the All-Star break. In the surgery, Rangers medical director…

  18. Jason Hammel is looking for three or four years

    jason hammel getty

    ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that free agent right-hander Jason Hammel is looking for a three- or four-year deal in free agency. This is an excellent market for starting pitching, with Phil Hughes and Scott Feldman both recently receiving three-year deals, but it’s not that good. While Hammel was one of the Orioles’ best starters in…

  19. Astros sign reliever Chad Qualls to a two-year contract

    Dec 7, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chad Qualls Getty

    One day after inking right-handed starter Scott Feldman to a three-year, $30 million contract, the Astros have signed veteran reliever Chad Qualls to a two-year deal with a club option for 2016. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that Qualls will make $6 million guaranteed in the deal while the option is worth $3.5 million. Qualls,…

  20. Astros sign Scott Feldman to $30 million deal

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Scott Feldman

    After going 12-12 with a 3.86 ERA for the Cubs and Orioles last season, Scott Feldman has landed a fat three-year, $30 million contract from the Astros, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. Feldman had similar peripherals in 2012 with the Rangers, but since it resulted in a 5.09 ERA, his best offer was a one-year,…

    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…

    Ian Kinsler

    Rangers 7, Rays 1: The Rangers finally snap the skid. Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus homered and drove in three runs each to pull Texas back into a tie with Tampa Bay at the top of the wild card standings. Indians 5, Royals 3: Kansas City took a 3-0 lead into the sixth with the Indians…

  23. Chris Davis hits home run #48 while teammate Scott Feldman blanks the White Sox

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hadn’t homered since August 28, which created a bit of tension as Miguel Cabrera attempts to win another Triple Crown. Cabrera, though, has played once since the 30th, so the four-homer gap between the two remained until tonight, when Davis blasted #48 off of White Sox starter John Danks in…

  24. Ivan Nova holds Orioles to three hits in first career shutout

    Ivan Nova Getty

    Ivan Nova tossed his first career shutout while Robinson Cano did the heavy lifting for the offense as the Yankees defeated the Orioles 2-0 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Nova gave up just three hits (all of them singles), one walk, and two hit-by-pitches while striking out five batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and…

  25. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:56 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki, Miguel Gonzalez

    CC Sabathia hardly delivered an ace-like performance last night, but fortunately for him, his offense was there to pick him up. On the strength of a five-run fifth inning, the Yankees defeated the Orioles 8-5 at Yankee Stadium and remain very much alive in the AL Wild Card race. Miguel Gonzalez failed to get an…
