Below, a back-and-forth.
Michael Bourn finally got signed, right before the start of spring training. Bourn’s signing leaves only Kyle Lohse among available free agents of consequence. Lohse, of course, is going to sign somewhere eventually, if only because spring training means sta...
BEST OF MAXIM
While the Cleveland Indians and St. Louis Cardinals are not
expected to be a fit for free agent Kyle Lohse, the Washington Nationals could
attempt to sign the right-hander, according to Adam Kilgore of The Washington
The Nationals await a ruling on left-hander Gio Gonzalez’s
tie to Biogenesis. As a result of his connection, Gonzalez could face a 50-gameban from...
Everyone says you can never have too much starting pitching. Well, almost everyone. My six-week old son doesn't say that because he can't talk and also has a tiny, stupid brain. Babies are very stupid, so I'll amend that first sentence to everyone who knows about baseball and has a fully developed brain says you can never have too much starting pitching.
To that point...
At long last, we have completed our team previews. Well, we did the best we could with player movement, but obviously guys like Michael Bourn and Kyle Lohse won’t be seen here.
As we said at the beginning of these, the numbers you saw throughout these are the projections of the individual writer and not necessarily what you’ll see in our Draft Kit, which comes out on February...
Michael Bourn is officially a member of the Indians and that means talking to the press, but he was far from alone. Bourn showed up with Indians GM Chris Antonetti, his agent Scott Boras, and his son who could be heard murmuring into the mic when he wasn’t cracking up the presser by being what Bourn referred to as a “show off.”
“Every team was on my radar,” Michael Bourn...
The Cleveland Indians pulled a dual surprise by signing both Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn, and while they’re unlikely to complete the trifecta by signing Kyle Lohse, the recent Bourn acquisition has people thinking about the Indians as a dark-horse American League playoff contender. Everybody likes an underdog, the Indians have put themselves in the headlines, and they do possess...
The Indians outfield defense is going to be really good. As Jeff Sullivan noted, the addition of Michael Bourn makes the outfield defense very good as it pushes two good center fielders (Michael Brantley and Drew Stubbs) to the corners. That last part is what really struck me about the move. Over my roughly 17 years of watching baseball, I’ve always been told that a corner outfielder...
Two days into camp and the Mets have already taken two shots.
The first was inevitable, that Michael Bourn signed elsewhere. Come to think of it, so was the second when Frank Francisco was shut down with elbow inflammation. The proviso was Francisco would be the closer if healthy and he is clearly not.
Terry Collins told us that it may be a while before Francisco throws a baseball...
Sandy Alderson told reporters that the 5th year option was the big issue with signing Michael Bourn, and also that indications changed whether or not they would keep the 11th pick after an arbitrator ruling. This according to Kevin Burkhardt.

The long and dragged out pursuit is over, and the Mets came up empty. The Cleveland Indians have signed Michael Bourn...
Love is in the air between TD and sports. Specifically, TD is no longer NBA free as he and his family were wooed by the Cavaliers and their gameday experience at the Q last night. We talked about that and a great many other topics. There was one quick technical dropout in the middle, but it shouldn’t be too distracting.
