  2. Starlin Castro pulled after his mental error allows a run to score

    Starlin Castro

    Cubs manager Dale Sveum decided to remove shortstop Starlin Castro from the game after he forgot the number of outs in the top of the fifth inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Matt Carpenter hit a lazy fly ball to shallow left field where Castro ran it down. As he casually slowed down,…

    Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was hit twice by Braves pitchers last night, the second of which, thrown by reliever Luis Avilan, garnered a standing ovation from the home crowd in Atlanta. Braves pitchers have been at fault three of the four times Harper has been hit by a pitch this year. Recall that the benches cleared…

  4. Bryce Harper out with the flu

    Bryce Harper is out of today’s game against the Giants due to flu-like symptoms. He came down with it yesterday. Scott Hairston will take his place. I highlight this only as a reminder of the Nationals’ discriminatory flu policies.  A couple of weeks ago Drew Storen had the flu and the Nats not only made…

  5. The Mets are hesitant to trade Marlon Byrd

    After a lost year, Marlon Byrd has exceeded all expectations this season by batting .263 with 15 home runs, 49 RBI, and an .804 OPS through 77 games  With the Mets unlikely to make a run at things, many have logically speculated that the club will attempt to sell high by the trade deadline later…

    Scott Hairston

    Looking for another weapon to combat left-handed pitchers, the Nationals picked up Scott Hairston from the Cubs on Sunday night, a source told FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. Rosenthal says the Cubs will get a minor league pitcher in return. Hairston had to be expecting a bigger role than the one he found in Chicago after signing…

  8. Report: Cubs “on the fringes” for free agent outfielder Michael Bourn

    UPDATE: So much for that. Carrie Muskat, who covers the Cubs for MLB.com, writes that Bourn to the Cubs is “not happening.” Could this be a case of Bourn’s agent, Scott Boras, making a last-ditch effort to create a market for his client? 8:06 PM: There’s been plenty of chatter over the past couple of…

    There has been a lot of chatter about the Mets and Michael Bourn in the past day or so. It breaks down like this: John Harper of the Daily News says that he has been told that the Mets have a real interest in Bourn. He also reports that the Mets not signing Scott Hairston,…

    FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cubs have signed free agent outfielder Scott Hairston to a two-year contract. It’s only pending a physical exam. Exact financial details have not been disclosed. Hairston batted .263/.299/.504 with a career-high 20 home runs and 57 RBI in 398 plate appearances last season for the Mets. The 32-year-old…

  12. Bargain-hunting Rays still have some holes

    Jan 18, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    Joe Maddon, Andrew Friedman

    The Rays have spent some money this winter, adding Yunel Escobar for shortstop, James Loney for first base and Roberto Hernandez to the pitching staff. Their rotation is fine even with James Shields gone and the infield might be set, if Ben Zobrist plays second base, but the team still has some needs as is.…

  13. The Mets counteroffer to Scott Hairston was … low

    Jan 16, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    Yesterday Heyman reported that the Mets “balked” at Scott Hairston‘s asking price of $8 million over two years. Mike Puma reports that it was less of a balk than it was a brushback pitch: On another front, an industry source confirmed the Mets have rejected Scott Hairston’s asking price of two years and $8 million.…

  14. The Mets “balked” at Scott Hairston’s contract demands

    Jan 15, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    Not that they were exorbitant demands. Heyman says that Scott Hariston asked the Mets for two years and $8 million. That’s a considerable raise for Hairston who has never made more than $2.45 million in a year, and only made $1.1 million a year the past two seasons with the Mets. He’s never had a multi-year…

  15. Report: Mets interested in trading for Justin Upton

    Jan 11, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    We heard earlier today that the Mets are looking at free agent Scott Hairston as a “fallback option” and will only sign him if they can’t find someone better for their outfield. It’s not a surprise who they have on their wish list. Sources tell Marc Carig of New York Newsday that the Mets are…

  16. The Mets view Scott Hairston as a “fallback option”

    Jan 11, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    The Mets have been rumored to be a finalist for Scott Hairston‘s services, but now Jon Heyman is saying that the Mets view him as a “fallback” option, and that they’ll only move on Hairston if they can’t get anyone better. Which, considering the Mets haven’t been strongly rumored to be in on any other…

    After weighing his options for most of the offseason, Scott Hairston is close to making a decision on where he’ll play in 2013. And chances are he’s not going far. According to Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York, it appears that the Mets and Yankees are the finalists for Hairston’s services. Casey Close, the outfielder’s…

  18. The Mets should have a cash infusion of over $160 million

    Mayor Bloomberg Makes Announcement With MLB Commissioner Bud Selig And Mets Owner CEO Fred Wilpon

    Craig passed along a story yesterday that the Mets received $700 million in loans to refinance their debt, but as Richard Sandomir of the New York Times reports, the devil is in the details. The resulting stability and financial muscularity of SNY and similar networks make them low risks to banks. Late last month, SNY…

  19. The Yankees are still interested in Scott Hairston

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    In past years I would not make much of an effort to post about the Yankees’ possible interest in role players, but in a world where their failure to land guys like Jeff Keppinger and Nate Schierholtz actually upsets people, this is relevant: The Yankees starting outfield is Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki ……

    Yesterday the Rangers made their one-year deal with A.J. Pierzynski official, adding the veteran catcher to the lineup following his career-year for the White Sox, but general manager Jon Daniels also said that he’s still searching for another hitter after losing Josh Hamilton and Mike Napoli to free agency. “We’re looking at that now,” Daniels…

    The Mariners acquired Kendrys Morales from the Angels this week in exchange for Jason Vargas, but they aren’t done trying to add bats. George A. King III of the New York Post reports that the Mariners have “serious interest” in Raul Ibanez. It’s a bit of an odd fit on the surface, as the club…

    FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal provides the scoop: The Yankees, sources say, are among the possibilities for [Vernon] Wells — the teams discussed him at the winter meetings, and Wells could fill the Yankees’ need for a right-handed hitting outfielder. Wells has batted just .222 with a .667 OPS over the past two seasons and is owed…

    We saw a premature report out of Japan late last month, but it appears that Ichiro Suzuki will indeed be back with the Yankees next season.
