It's never a good thing when you lose two guys in the Rule 5 draft

This morning, the Yankees lost two prospects in the mysterious MLB Rule 5 draft, an event that nobody but lawyers understand.We lost Jake Cave to the Reds, and what stings more deeply is that he was the second player picked, which means he was probably a goner from the gitgo. Cave looked like a nice, up-and-coming outfielder, and it's rare for the Yankees to have enough of them to...

Prospect rankings are inherently subjective and there are few checks and balances. Minor-league baseball, unlike college football or college basketball, unofficial development leagues for the other major sports, plays out largely obscured from the public view.

Braves-Nationals Preview

The Nationals look to complete a four-game sweep of Atlanta while dealing the Braves their longest road losing streak in 92 years Sunday. Washington (70-65) sat alone atop the...

Iceberg dead ahead: The Yankees visit two last place teams going nowhere. What could possibly go wrong?

It's been a while since I watched a game in Atlanta, but I can't wait! What a joy it will be to see Ted Turner and Jane Fonda, sitting behind the dugout, leading the "Tomahawk Chop!" Do the Braves still have that big guy with the facial mole? Dale Somethingorother? That thing was huge. Didn't he have it surgically removed, and then never hit again? Scary, eh? Oh well, Atlanta!
