Found December 20, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Free-agent lefty Tom Gorzelanny agreed to a two-year deal with the Brewers, according to a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report. The deal is contingent on a physical, which is scheduled for Friday.

He worked out of the bullpen in 2012, but has started in the past. Gorzelanny posted a 2.88 ERA in 72 innings last season, spread out over 45 games.

The enigma of Edwin Jackson's market

Unless Edwin Jackson is signed by a team he has already played with, he will be pitching for his eighth team in 2013. He is 29 years old. Switching teams is common for relief pitchers.

On the Nationals’ Interest in Adam LaRoche

After having his 2011 season ruined by injury, Adam LaRoche had a nice comeback in 2012. He hit .271/.343/.510 (127 wRC+), including a career-high 33 home runs on the way to the postseason with Washington. The Nationals and LaRoche had a mutual option for 2013, but LaRoche turned down his side of it and opted for free agency as he entered his age-33 season. LaRoche is reportedly...

Brad Lidge’s Memorable Moment

If we were to sit down and create a list of the five most memorable baseball moments of the 21st century, the home run Albert Pujols hit off Brad Lidge in Game Three of the 2005 NLCS would be on it. It’s not even a question of if it would be on the list, but where. Baseball has a way of making your jaw drop — think David Freese, Aaron Boone, Bill Buckner — and that homer certainly...
