IAN DESMOND RUMORS & GOSSIP

Top 10 MLB first basemen for 2017

There are few positions that are both more fun – while simultaneously difficult – to breakdown than first base. It is annually the home many of the most impressive hitters in the game, and limiting that assessment to simply a top 10 ensures there will be some impact players left on the outside. But is also guarantees an all-out fight to make it to the top. This year’s list...

Report: Padres in talks with Ian Desmond

Padres general manager A.J. Preller learned his lesson last offseason when he shopped ’til he dropped on the free agent market. Ironically, he then witnessed the team actually drop (in the standings) as their mismatched roster of big-name talent largely failed to come together.

Ian Desmond got into the Montreal Expos nostalgia tonight

So there was baseball in Montreal on Friday night, albeit exhibition baseball between the Mets and Blue Jays, and lots of nostalgic talk of the Expos making the rounds. And so, it only makes sense that Ian Desmond (drafted by Montreal in 2004) got into the spirit (photo via @IanDesmond20) All these expos hats got me goin down memory lane. #OG pic.twitter.com/64prGWanmn ...
