Ariel Miranda looks ready to help the Orioles

Ariel Miranda signed with the Baltimore Orioles this May in a relatively under-the-radar manner. The Cuban-born left-hander did not come stateside with the buzz of a Jose Contreras or Aroldis Chapman. At 26-years-old, the left-hander did not come with an extreme amount of upside, but did post a respectable 3.24 ERA in his final Cuban season. Through five starts at the Double-A level...

The Cardinals Are Terrible Against Aroldis Chapman

I got put down a rabbit hole. For #Cardinals, the ninth is dark and full of Chapman. Behind the speedballers dominance of #stlcards #reds http://t.co/7Q3YkQzYpE — Derrick Goold (@dgoold) August 5, 2015 I knew it was bad. D Goold typed a bunch of words about it.

Trade Deadline Day: What do the Dodgers have left to do?

So, it’s been quite an eventful couple of days. The Dodgers have bolstered their rotation — something everyone thought and knew would happen — they just didn’t do it with a big-name pitcher. Yet. OK, so David Price and Cole Hamels have been dealt, and there is no pitcher of their caliber remaining on the market. But the Dodgers are still apparently in the market for a starting...
