Can Braves' McDowell work magic again with Rodriguez or Wang?

It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future, is a line has been credited to Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill and two of baseball's most quotable philosophers, Yogi Berra and Casey Stengel.

White Sox Sign Chien-Ming Wang, Trade Dylan Axelrod

The White Sox had a busy Thursday ahead of the second half of the regular season getting underway Friday evening.

As fill-in starters, both have been tremendous for this team, but it’d be silly...

FOUND: The Juju key to the 2014 Yankees winning the World Series

It's simple, it's so obvious, how didn't I see this before Sunday? I could have spared us those two horrible losses in Tampa.Last week, after the Yankees took three from Beard Town, and then stomped the Tampaoans in game one, I found myself so confident about this team that I actually pondered the possibility of winning six in a row. What absurdity! What hubris! I was drunk and stoned...

Chien-Ming Wang is a Red, and somewhere old George's statue is weeping

Chien-Ming Wang, the last great homegrown starting pitcher for the Yankees, took a minor league deal yesterday with Cincinnati. It's cheap, but larded with incentives. Basically, the Reds are willing to roll the dice on Wang, and we were not.I have no clue if Wang can still pitch. Last year, Toronto neatly shoplifted him from our system, and he fell apart after two half-promising...
