BUSTER OLNEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Can the Bills finally end the Patriots’ reign?

A few years back, I read a book by Buster Olney about Yankees teams of the 90s. The book was titled “The Last night of  Yankees dynasty.” The premise of the book was how their dynasty fizzled out after  losing the 7th game of the 2001 World Series against the D’backs. Its a great book and I recommend it to anyone even if you don’t care about the Yanks.  I’m sure you...

Olney: ‘Could Be A Quiet Offseason In New York’

According to a report filed by ESPN analyst Buster Olney, the Mets and Sandy Alderson expect their 2015 payroll to be similar to their 2014 payroll. Currently, the Mets have the 22nd highest payroll in baseball, sandwiched in between the San Diego Padres and the Chicago Cubs. The magic number for 2014 stands at $89,051,758 and if we understand the report correctly, this should be...

Buster Olney to write book on childhood friend who assaulted and killed his niece

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Buster Olney is working on a book. The subject, though, isn’t what you would expect from Olney. Vermont Public Radio has an interview with the ESPN baseball analyst on his plans to write a book about a childhood friend who is serving life in prison for assaulting and killing his niece. But this week, the Randolph native found himself in an...

Source: A-Rod blew his chance to take a deal for a 50 game suspension

Buster Olney wrote something that turned my head today. That A-Rod had a plea deal possible back in the spring — for a low, low, number of games — and turned it down: If Rodriguez had agreed to something last spring, before MLB investigators had all the Biogenesis details from Bosch, Rodriguez might’ve been able to barter for a suspension for something close to 50 games, or...

Buster Olney rips Reds for 'bunt addiction' in extra-inning loss

Anyone who watched the 16-inning affair between the Reds and Cardinals Wednesday night had to have come away scratching their heads at Cincinnati's puzzling insistence to bunt. All in all, four different Reds hitters in the span of two innings made an attempt to lay down a bunt from the bottom of the 14th inning on. First, Zack Cozart tried to sacrifice pinch-runner Billy...

Phillies and Olney’s Top 10s: Are You Worried?

Buster Olney of ESPN has produced a pretty fun series of articles this week. Day by day, Olney has posted on his Insider blog Top 10 lists for infield, outfield, rotation, line-ups, and Top 10 overall teams. Olney’s rankings are comprehensive but can be confusing; for instance, the teams with the two highest ranked line-ups, the Angels and Brewers, are not in the overall Top 10...

Olney: Reds boast sixth-best outfield unit in baseball

Jay Bruce in right, Shin-Soo Choo in center, and Ryan Ludwick in left -- this appears to be the outfield trio manager Dusty Baker will be penciling in on a regular basis in 2013. Chris Heisey, Xavier Paul, and perhaps Billy Hamilton will be called upon to patrol the GABP grasses at times next season, as well. So, how does Cincinnati's outfielding unit compare to those...

Buster Olney: Reds feature one of the top rotations in baseball

Great pitching hasn't exactly been a staple for the Reds in years past. The franchise has been traditionally known for its offensive prowess rather than its ability to get batters out. But that perception may be shifting thanks to the latest developments in Cincinnati. The Redlegs have been relying on pitching and defense and ESPN's Buster Olney has taken notice. In his...
