The defending champions are bringing back one of their most notables beards in the form of Mike Napoli after agreeing on a two year deal worth $32 million which was first reported by Rob Bradford of WEEI. You might remember that after he originally signed in December, a hip issue altered the deal from a three year contract to a one year deal in January. So, after it is all said and done – Napoli […]
I was taking a look at a month old post from Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, who enlisted the services of one unbiased agent and one unbiased GM to put together their free agent predictions for this 2013-2014 offseason. I was curious to see where they had LaTroy Hawkins, Marlon Byrd and Josh Johnson pegged and surprising all three signed for far less than what many expected. Here is what they came up with: Hawkins […]
Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports is reporting that right fielder Carlos Beltran is looking for a three or four year contract and is expected to reject Cardinals’ one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer. That’s probably what the cards were hoping he does as they get ready to usher in the Oscar Taveras era. Beltran, 36, is looking for a deal that will carry him to retirement and with a 3-4 year demand, it’s safe to say he […]
The Phillies are targeting big-time free-agent outfielders and baseball people expect them to be in the mix for Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo, Nelson Cruz and possibly Curtis Granderson according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The Phillies have a team built around superior starting pitching and veteran infielders, Heyman writes. But have a clear weakness in the outfield, where they got sub-par production this past year. One person familiar with their situation said they were even prepared to try to bring back Hunter […]
Wednesday night marked the beginning of the World Series and the two teams which have been praised all postseason long for having outstanding systems and team building began to battle one another for the championship. While the manner in which these League Champs were built is certainly much more complicated than the way the mass media is letting on, here are the basic structures of Boston and St. Louis in a nutshell. Boston added multiple […]
Red Sox vs Cardinals Sunday, 8:00 PM ET • Busch Stadium What a stunning way to lose Game Three of the World Series last night, as the Boston Red Sox fell to the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 after a bizarre final play that culminated in an obstruction call on third baseman Will Middlebrooks. Despite the shocking finish and all the futile arguing by the Red Sox, the bottom line was that the umpires got it […]
Live Blog From Citi Field Pressbox Top First: It starts to rain right after the anthem and moment of silence for Boston and Texas. The weather isn’t Minnesota-Denver bad, but I thought there would be more people here for Harvey-Strasburg. Harvey strikes out his first hitter and gets out of the inning with a runner on second. Bottom First: Jordany Valdespin leading off again. Glad to see Terry Collins running with this. Valdespin reaches on […]
The world awakens this morning seeking to right itself after a pair of explosions rocked Boston yesterday afternoon. Lost are three souls, with no fewer than another one hundred and thirty-two injured. Also lost in the day’s events, a nation’s sense of security when it comes to sporting events. Long thought to be a potential target, major sporting events are often subjected to increased security measures. To date, the United States had been successful (or […]
