MLB Trade Rumors: Mariners Looking for an Outfielder

The Seattle Mariners have had a strong first half. If they were in the American League East, their 49-41 record would put them in a tie for first place.

For all intents and purposes, the Mariners are in a battle for one of the two wild card spots. The Mariners...

MLB Play of the Day: Yasiel Puig Makes Absurd Catch, Turns 2

Yasiel Puig has done it again. In the bottom of the 8th inning of yesterday’s Dodgers game against the Colorado Rockies, Drew Stubbs hit a somewhat routine fly-ball to right field and Yasiel Puig misjudged it completely.

Rockies need to think long-term at trade deadline

Remember back in December when Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort told Troy Renck of the Denver Post that the Rockies should make the playoffs twice every five years? Well, the last time the Rockies made the playoffs was 2009, and a injury-riddled June doesn’t inspire optimism about their chances in 2014. All of which begs the question, if the Rockies aren’t going to start hitting...
