Baseball’s winter meetings open Monday, a four-day session that often turns into a fan’s delight. There’s always the promise of blockbuster trades and major free-agent signings
Brian Cashman is willing to play the waiting game when it comes to acquiring a talented starter — and will not let the market force him into overpaying.
Teams offered 26 players arbitration, of which six were Type A free agents. A new club signing one of those premier players would lose a top pick in June’s amateur draft, and a team that offers arbitration and loses one of those players would get two extra selections as compensation.
Some of the priciest gifts purchased around this holiday season won’t arrive in a bow. Here are predictions as to where baseball’s Top 5 Free Agents will end up.
C.J. Wilson may be the most talented starter on the free agent market but the Yankees should turn to other targets if his salary demands are too high.
The Marlins appear to be ready to do what it takes to bring Jose Reyes to South Beach. Do the Mets have a chance of retaining their superstar shortstop?
Brian Cashman should turn his full attention to free agent starter Mark Buerhle. The former White Sox ace can fill the Yankees’ craving for a reliable starter.
It feels incongruous and sad put a post-mortem a baseball season with so much life, to go from frantic and fantastic to flat-line in a few frigid hours.
There are plenty of unbelievable stories and stars in the amazing 10-9 win by the Cardinals over the Rangers in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. What about the significant, but already forgotten, play in the bottom of the eighth?
The triple homer World Series game used to be the exclusive territory of the Yankees—Babe Ruth in 1926 and again in 1928, and Reggie Jackson in 1977. Welcome to the club, Albert Pujols.
On Sunday night, Derek Holland kept Albert Pujols in the ballpark — and the Texas Rangers in this World Series.
Albert Pujols joined elite World Series company by hitting three home runs in a World Series game. Pujols equaled Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson in the Cardinals’ 16-7 Game 3 victory over the Rangers.
While everybody immediately accepted that Albert Pujols made an error in the top of the ninth inning last night, the reality is that the rules say something else entirely.
Pinch-hitter Ryan Theriot hit a a go-ahead double with the bases loaded in the seventh inning and the St. Louis Cardinals came back to beat the New York Mets 11-6 Tuesday night.
Ben Ulene, 15, of Scarsdale, really hit a home run, and he didn’t even have to swing a bat.
