Have the Winter Meeting Moves Made the Los Angeles Dodgers Better?

Baseball’s Winter Meetings were held in San Diego this year. But it was another California city that stole the show. No team, save for Billy Beane’s Oakland A’s, has had a more radical transition to a roster this off-season. Consider everything that went down for the Dodgers since just Wednesday. In the middle of the afternoon, the Dodgers traded for the Philadelphia Phillies’...

Be very afraid of the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers

Just when we had gotten use to the new Los Angeles Dodgers and their bottomless, oft-used wallet, they’ve gone and changed it up once again. There was once a time where the Dodgers couldn’t say no to an expensive veteran and could give a contract extension to just about anyone on the roster. They were a good team, but not the elite team many had thought they could become. But...

Tigers make Winter Meetings splash, getting Yoenis Cespedes and Alfredo Simon

Sometimes, there’s a reason baseball trade rumors just won’t die. They just need time to become true. Ever since the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and announced he would play left field, Yoenis Cespedes became the odd man out of the Boston outfield. Actually, he was probably on the outside looking in before Ramirez was signed, as the Red Sox roster was loaded with outfielders...

Wade Miley, Who Is Better Than You Think

Everyone knew heading into the offseason that the Red Sox starting rotation was going to need some help, and so the first thing they went and did was sign Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval. Those guys are not pitchers, so while it gave the Red Sox perhaps the best lineup in the MLB, they still […]

The Night That Blew Up Baseball

I’m shocked. I’m floored, really, at what’s happened in the last 12 hours. I’m sad that Dee Gordon is gone, because he was immensely fun to watch and probably the nicest ballplayer I have ever spoken to, and thrilled in the manner in which he left. I feel for Dan Haren, another good guy who seemed so happy to be able to pitch back at home, and pleased that he’s no longer...

Will Middlebrooks Wants To Stay With Red Sox Despite Not Fitting ‘The Mix’

Will Middlebrooks, much to his chagrin, looks like the odd man out. Middlebrooks is still on the Boston Red Sox roster, but many think it’s only a matter of time before the third baseman is traded. The writing for a deal certainly appears to be on the wall after the club invested more than $180 million in Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez — two players...

Chili Davis Drawn To Boston Red Sox By Club’s Winning Culture (Video)

The Boston Red Sox fell on hard times in 2014. One year doesn’t make or break an organization. Just ask hitting coach Chili Davis, who was hired by the Red Sox this offseason after Greg Colbrunn opted not to return for the 2015 season. Davis, who served as the Oakland Athletics’ hitting coach last season, told NESN’s Tom Caron on Wednesday that Boston’s winning culture...

Where Do the Red Sox Stand in the AL East Right Now?

MLB’s offseason has only just begun, but already the Red Sox have dipped into the free-agent market. While Boston still has work to do (have you seen the club’s projected starting rotation recently?), Ben Cherington has spent nearly $200 million in adding Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval to the roster, and it’s only December 3. For the most part, the Red Sox are probably...

Xander Bogaerts Similar To Young Hanley Ramirez, Says Red Sox Coach

This embed is invalid" /> The similarities are apparent. Xander Bogaerts is a 22-year-old shortstop with power who bats from the right side. He’s also tall, slender and full of offensive potential. In many ways, Bogaerts resembles a younger version of Hanley Ramirez, who last week signed a four-year contract with the Boston Red Sox reportedly worth...

Red Sox Searching for Starting Pitching

Following the signings of third baseman Pablo Sandoval and now-left fielder Hanley Ramirez, the Boston Red Sox are starting to put their weight in the starting pitching market this offseason. For the Sox, it is obvious that they have their choice of starting pitching. The Red Sox appear to have Jon Lester at the top of their pitching search, as Michael Silvermann of the Boston Herald...

Indians Offseason May Require Some Patience

Major League Baseball names, both big and small, have been flying off the free agent and trade shelves at pretty fast pace over the past couple of weeks. Boston’s spending spree to snatch two the winter’s biggest prizes in Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez really got the hot stove heated up. It seems a lot of teams have been actively adding talent via trade or free agency. Then...

The Appeal of Yoenis Cespedes

The hot stove is still on fire in the Major League Baseball world, and the one name that seems to keep the water boiling is Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. The 29-year-old Red Sox slugger has dodged the Red Sox hype when it came to Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, but his name was still being thrown around like a hot potato since Ramirez is supposedly set to play left field...

VIDEO: How credible is a “baseball insider”?

With the help of @kenny1918, and his collecting of tweets (conveniently compiled in this /r/baseball post), we were able to piece...

Shane Victorino Feels Good Despite Red Sox’s Uncertain Outfield Situation

With Hanley Ramirez being added to the Boston Red Sox’s already crowded outfield Tuesday, Shane Victorino’s situation became even more unclear. But the right fielder doesn’t seem to think so. Victorino played just 30 games in 2014 thanks to lingering back problems that led to season-ending surgery. Still, he told WEEI’s Rob Bradford on Thursday...

How Well Do the Red Sox Need Hanley Ramirez to Field Left?

Hanley Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox is making a relatively unprecedented switch from shortstop to left field, a move that could revitalize his career. Fielders typically transition from shortstop to third base and then eventually the outfield. The shortstop position plays its toll on the body of a fielder, particularly one north of 30 […]

Tribe Targets: Allen Craig

If the first few weeks of the baseball off-season have taught us anything, it’s that the Boston Red Sox are willing to spend a lot of money in an attempt to rebuild themselves into playoff contenders for 2015. Earlier this week the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval four year deals, with Ramirez’ signing for $88 million and Kung Fu Panda’s for $95 million. On...

Analyzing the Next Potential Yankees Shortstop

The Derek Jeter era has come to an end in New York. For 20 seasons, the Yankees could rely on Jeter to bring energy, heart, and of course his talent to the baseball diamond. He played in nearly 85 percent of all Yankees games since 1995, and if his 1995 inaugural season and injury riddled 2013 were to be excluded, he played in over 93 percent of games. However, the Yankees, who...

Who plays shortstop for the Dodgers in 2015?

Now that Hanley Ramirez has signed to play left field (oy) in Boston, the Dodgers have a massive, gaping hole at shortstop (and in the lineup). One could argue that the hole at short is greater than the one behind the plate. There are a couple internal options to fill the void for 2015 – Erisbel Arruebarrena and Miguel Rojas. But let’s be real. Arruebarrena is coming of a less...
