Astros avert series sweep with win over Blue Jays in finale

Jeff Luhnow didn’t color the offense with empty praise. “Underperforming, for sure,” the Astros general manager said Thursday afternoon. “I think we’ve got a couple guys in the lineup that haven’t got going yet.

Astros get best of Yankees, improve to 2-0

The Astros’ war cry this winter was a promise the bullpen would be better. If nothing else, they would fix the worst relief corps around.

Phillies Sign Third Baseman Josh Fields

The Phillies have made a signing, and it's a third baseman.  However, he is not likely the solution.  Today the Phillies signed third baseman Josh Fields to a minor league contract.    Once a top prospect, Fields will likely go into Spring Training along the lines of the many minor league infielders the Phillies have signed over the years.  Hopefully they will get lucky...
