Are the Miami Marlins primed for a breakout in 2014?

Calling the Miami Marlins a dumpster fire in 2013 is an insult to waste receptacles. The club started the year 1-9, was 35-58 in the first half, and finished the season at 62-100, the second-worst mark in the majors and in the team's 21 year history. Their season was just a complete mess. However, things […]

Yasiel Puig arrested for reckless driving

Just when all the "play the game the right way" moralists thought they could take it easy for the winter, Yasiel Puig had to go and get himself arrested. According to the Naples Daily News, Puig was arrested in Florida on Saturday morning on charges of reckless driving. The report states that Puig was allegedly […]

Do the Tampa Bay Rays need to trade David Price?

The Tampa Bay Rays possess one of the most valuable trade chips on the market this offseason in 28-year old left-hander David Price. The 2012 AL Cy Young winner still has two years of team control left, and won't be a free agent until after the 2015 season. But there have been trade rumors about […]

The Twelve Days of Hot Stove

It’s a slow week in the baseball world and it’s Christmas, so why not combine the two? In honor of one of the busiest off-seasons we’ve seen in a long time, here are The Twelve Days of Hot Stove. Because any time you can take the words of a famous Christmas carol and replace them […]

Nelson Cruz is in an enviable position on the free agent market

After Shin-Soo Choo signed with the Rangers on Saturday, there's just one free agent outfielder unsigned out of our top ten – Nelson Cruz, last of those same Texas Rangers. And keep in mind, that top ten list isn't filled with players like Jacoby Ellsbury and Choo – guys like Corey Hart, Michael Morse, Jason […]

The Phillies ask: “What’s the Phanatic say?”

I'm sure everyone is familiar with "What's the Fox Say" by now. That's spawned legions of parodies, including this incredibly creepy one put together by the Philadelphia Phillies. In addition to the Phanatic, the video also features various local Philly mascots, including those from the team's farm system and Philly's college teams. If you want […]

Five teams that still have plenty of offseason work to do

On Monday, Joe Lucia listed five MLB teams who appear to be done with their offseason shopping, at least in terms of major moves. But there are several other clubs that still have much work to do in improving their rosters for next season, with many options available on the free agent and trade markets. […]

Which one year starting pitcher contract will work out best?

The price for starting pitching has gone through the roof this winter, and the top tier options haven't even signed. With the uncertainty surrounding Masahiro Tanaka's posting, guys like Matt Garza, Ubaldo Jimenez, and Ervin Santana have been in a holding pattern. That's led to middle and back-end rotation options getting more money than you'd […]

Angels change offseason strategy, end up better

The Los Angeles Angels have never been afraid to spend money in the offseason. From Vladimir Guerrero to Gary Matthews Jr. to Torii Hunter to, more recently Albert Pujols, C.J. Wilson, and Josh Hamilton, the club has sunk significant resources into improving themselves and winning another pennant. Unfortunately for the Angels, they have reached the […]
