If you followed the early years of Neal Huntington’s...

Juan Nicasio (and Ryan Vogelsong and Jeff Locke) and the last rotation spot

It was immediately obvious to anyone at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota this afternoon that Juan Nicasio was making the Orioles look stupid. He made Manny Machado and Adam Jones look really bad by mixing a mid-90s fastball (generally 92-94, but I saw it hit 95 at least once on the scoreboard) and got Pedro Alvarez on a bunt (?!? — I guess he was practicing bunting through the shift...

Veteran pitcher Vogelsong hoping to catch on with Pirates

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) Ryan Vogelsong is hoping his second stint with the Pittsburgh Pirates ends better than the first.

FG on Fox: Is Japan’s Professional Baseball League Unfair?

“I was always pitching to a smaller strike zone,” Ryan Vogelsong said of his time in Nippon Professional Baseball. “That’s just the way it is, it’s the unwritten rule of baseball there, the foreigner’s strike zone is going to be smaller.” Vogelsong is not alone — other returnees from Japan report unfair treatment from umpires […]

Ryan Vogelson a Week 7 Two Start Pitcher of interest

Week 7 Two Start Pitchers: Ryan Vogelsong - San Francisco Giants (1-1, 3.93 ERA) vs ATL (Mike Minor) & vs MIA (Jacob Turner) I like Vogelsong a lot, and trust me it was hard to type that. Vogelsong has been pretty much awful since being lights out when the Giants won the World Series. Vogelsong also started 2014 slow, but as of late he’s allowed only two runs over his last...
