Winter Ball Update 2012: Part Four

As we head into the final weeks of the regular season, your current league leaders are the Aguilas Cibaeñas/Estrellas de Oriente (Dominican Republic, both 30-17), the Tomateros de Culiacan (Mexico, 13-7), the Criollos de Caguas (Puerto Rico, 18-10), and the Leones del Caracas/Navegantes del Magallanes (Venezuela, 30-24). Also, I must bid farewell to two players […]

Is Rick Porcello the Starting Pitcher Who Should Be Traded?

Basically everyone and their mother assumes that Rick Porcello, the 23 year old sinkerballer, is on the trade block – this is a big wooden stump that renegades and castaways and albatross contracts get placed on every month or so – and it makes complete sense if you’re a team who is operating on a […]

Anibal Sanchez Remains A Tiger Because Mike Ilitch Said So

After a very confusing 16 hour period in which Anibal Sanchez was signing with the Cubs then wasn’t signing with the Cubs, it appears that the Tigers – more specifically – Mike Ilitch – have won out. Multiple reports say that Detroit has re-signed Sanchez to a 5 year, $80 million contract. Overpay? Yeah. That’s […]

Walkoff Woodward’s First Egraphs Contest Giveaway

Walkoff Woodward’s First Egraphs Contest Giveaway

I was contacted earlier this month by a member of Egraphs, the digital autograph company that launched this past July, and was asked if I wanted to host a contest for the Holiday. Having read about it earlier this year on MLB and ESPN‘s websites (and thought it was a pretty cool idea) I jumped […]

Brayan Pena, Tigers Agree With Each Other

The only reason I’m even posting this bit of news that you could have gotten here or here or here, and probably did at some point this afternoon, is because I loudly proclaimed my love for right handed Free Agent Kelly Shoppach back on November 26th and since they have now signed for Kansas City backstop, Brayan […]

On the Royals and Rays Trade and What It Means for Detroit

We’ve all been hearing rumors about it for weeks, but last night, as we were all settling down for the night, dreaming of another week at the daily grind without the distraction of a baseball game to use as a distraction from our most intrinsic fears, the Royals and Rays finally treated us to the magnificent […]

Scott Hairston and The Rumor Mill

Scott Hairston is a Free Agent. He smacked a couple of dingers and launched some doubles with the Mets last year, and since this is a team that didn’t do much of either in recent years, everyone thinks Scott Hairston is a quality player. Good for Scott Hairston. Good for the economy of baseball. The […]

Winter Ball Update 2012: Part Three

In hindsight, I probably should have posted this last week, since the winter meetings are going to dominate the headlines for the next few days, but it’s too late now and I don’t want to go another week without updating. Anyways, the current league leaders are the Estrellas de Oriente (Dominican Republic, 24-14), the Tomateros […]
