    Ike Davis

    On ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, the Braves wasted a strong effort by starter Julio Teheran and a seventh-inning, go-ahead two-run home run by Dan Uggla to fall to the Mets 4-2. The Braves ended their eight-game winning streak and in so doing, also ended the Mets’ five-game losing streak. The two teams, still, are heading…

    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.…

    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…

    Jan 26, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    Roy Oswalt Getty

    ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin reports that the Mets have shown interest in free agent pitcher Roy Oswalt. Interesting, as the Mets just signed Shaun Marcum and now have five starters that I believe most folks would consider to be better than Roy Oswalt is now. Still, depth is always nice. If Oswalt was willing…
