Blue Jays, Indians discussing possible trade: MLB Rumors

The Cleveland Indians rumor mill is starting to heat up a bit more. Michael Bode and I have covered a ton of possible outfield and infield targets the team could acquire via trade this offseason. I’ve looked at the non-qualifying offer free agent market for potential options, too. The most logical avenue for the Indians to drastically improve the 2016 roster remains a trade. And...

MLB Moves That Need to be Made: Edwin Encarnación, Toronto Blue Jays

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

The Worst Called Ball of the Season

The playoffs are over, and as balls and strikes go, the tournament wasn’t overly controversial. There were some misses, sure. There was that called strike against Ben Revere at nearly the worst possible time. That wasn’t great, and I’m sure there are some Blue Jays fans who are still fuming. Shortly before that, there was a similar called strike against Dioner Navarro. Rough...

Identifying Potential Strike Zone Disputes

There’s this thing about the World Series: It’s the only baseball left. There are two teams, and they need to finish before the offseason can begin. This is the most meaningful baseball on the calendar. After all, the World Series is the whole point. So you’ve got everyone focused on at least four games — and maybe as many as seven. There are days off in the lead-up,...

Sunday Notes: Revere, Hutchison, Ortiz, Chemistry, more

Ben Revere puts the bat on the baseball. His 4.0 swinging-strike% is fourth lowest among qualified hitters, with only Michael Brantley, Daniel Murphy and Ben Zobrist whiffing less often. His 97.2 Z-Contact% is topped only by Murphy’s 97.7. Putting balls in play is working out well for the left-handed-hitting former Phillie. Revere is hitting .342/.390/390 since joining the Blue...

WATCH: Ben Revere goes Jose Canseco on a fly ball

In a move straight from the Jose Canseco playbook, Toronto Blue Jays left-fielder Ben Revere gift-wrapped a solo home run for Baltimore Orioles’ first baseman Matt Wieters in the sixth inning of last night’s 10-2 Orioles’ victory. Revere seemed to have a bead on the ball, but he came up just short and batted the ball over the top of the fence for a home run. For Wieters, who...

StaTuesday: Twins may not have 15-steal player for first time in 30 years

From Dan Gladden and Chuck Knoblauch to Torii Hunter and Ben Revere, the Minnesota Twins have, over the past few decades, always had a player that could swipe a bag or 40. While as a group, they rank right in the middle among MLB teams in steals over the last 30 years, individually they really seem like a burgling bunch. Indeed, in every season since 1985, the Twins have had a player...

5 reasons why Ben Revere should replace Tulowitzki at leadoff

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY SportsFive reasons why Ben Revere should replace Troy Tulowitzki as the Toronto Blue Jays leadoff hitter. 1. Tulowitzki hasn’t done much in that role since his first few games after the trade to Toronto, and he’s never been a leadoff hitter. Being a great hitter does not automatically make you a great leadoff hitter. Tulowitzki had never been placed...
