Dodgers - Re-signed Juan Rivera

Los Angeles Dodgers - Signed OF Juan Rivera to a 1-year, $4.5 million contract with club option for 1-year, $3.5 million.

Honestly though this isn’t an objectively terrible signing. I can’t readily identify 60 better...

Rangers might make run at Pujols, Fielder

IRVING, Texas It's been nearly a week since the Rangers somehow lost Game 6 of the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals, so fans across North Texas aren't far along in the recovery process. On the positive side, if such a thing exists, those of us who grew up here never envisioned a time when Rangers fans would be borderline despondent over not winning a World Series...

Pujols, Fielder may bail out Dodgers

If the Dodgers' new owners were in place, do you think they would bid on Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder? You bet they would, given the team's need for a slugger at first base. Which begs the question: Why shouldn't the Dodgers sign Pujols or Fielder right now? They should -- and call it a parting gift from their ever-generous owner, Frank McCourt. A whopping free...

Rebuilding my Cubs

Ok, so I live in Northern California and you likely care a whole lot more about the Giants, for good reason.  Heck, you might even like the A's and if so, good for you.  However, I am a Cubs fan and they have issues, BIG issues, and those issues are on my mind.  Lots of talk about them signing Prince Fielder but I think that would be a mistake, not because he isn't a great...
