Braves Official: Mets Pitching A Force To Be Reckoned With

Peter Gammons polled baseball execs, coaches and scouts on which young pitchers turned some heads in Spring Training and unsurprisingly, Noah Syndergaard ranked No. 1 in his survey. “Physical, hard, power sink. Absolute potential star,” says one pro scouting director. “Has the power pitcher mentality.” What I found pretty cool were a couple of comments made by a Braves and...

Gammons: Don't Bet Against Drew To Detroit

An interesting Red Sox connection might result in free-agent Stephen Drew winding up in MoTown. Because former Sox phenom Jose Iglesias is likely headed to the DL with "shin splints", Detroit needs a reliable shortstop. Word is that Drew might be the answer—and Hall of Fame writer Peter Gammons thinks it might happen.

MLB Storylines: Could Sano be headed for Tommy John?

Top Stories: Miguel Sano, a top prospect of the Twins organization and a consesus top five prospect in all of minor league baseball, is headed for an MRI after suffering an injury to his throwing elbow. His agent, Rob Plummer, tells Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he fears the worst -- a torn UCL. Plummer made clear, however, that nothing is yet known for certain...

Hanging Chads To Decide Dell Replacement?

While there are still some 'hanging Chad Bradfords' to be counted from certain readers in Florida, our latest FenwayNation Poll is the very definition of a dead heat. As we stand this morning, Jamie Erdahl is clinging to a one-percentage-point lead over Jen Royle (44%-43%). Unless one of the candidates pulls ahead in the next day or so, it looks like this matter will be referred...

Gammons Says Drew Will Eventually Sign With Mets

The Red Sox have made a two-year offer to free agent shortstop Stephen Drew according to what a source told Jim Bowden of ESPN. The value of the deal was unreported. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson reiterated last week that the Mets are “unlikely” to sign Drew, despite the shortstop’s perceived lack of suitors on the free-agent market. “We haven’t ruled it out, but...

James Shields: Report that he's seeking Greinke-type deal 'inaccurate'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals right-hander James Shields said a Peter Gammons report recently that suggested he would be seeking a "Zack Greinke-type" deal after the 2014 season is inaccurate. "That's absolutely not true at all," Shields said Friday during the Royals FanFest at Bartle Hall. "I have no idea where he got that from, to be honest with you. I...

So, You Want To Win The Wild Card?

The Padres last made the post-season in 2006, losing in the divisional round to the St. Louis Cardinals. There was of course Game 163 which was technically a regular season game but certainly felt like a post-season game. That was 2007. Since then? Not too much in the way of October baseball. But that could all change if Buster Olney and Peter Gammons are right. Olney was more confident...

There's plenty of interest in AJ Burnett

Peter Gammons is reporting today that the Orioles are very interested in AJ Burnett and that the Rays have some interest in him as well. I won't pretend to know what's on Burnett's mind, but at this point it seems pretty unlikely to me that the Pirates will get into a bidding war for Burnett's services. The Pirates offer Burnett a locatino closer to his Maryland home...

Report: Orioles ‘All In’ Trying To Sign A.J. Burnett; Rays Also In Mix

The Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays appear to be intrigued by A.J. Burnett hitting the open market. The Orioles are going “all in” on trying to sign Burnett, according to Peter Gammons. The Rays reportedly are in the mix for the right-hander, too, although Gammons notes that it’s still early in the process. Reports surfaced earlier this week indicating that Burnett plans...

Jack Edwards vs Peter Gammons: round 1

You know, Peter Gammons commenting about hockey is like me commenting about women’s fashion. It’s just absolutely not his spectrum. He has no validity. He has no credibility. If the guy were at the rink all the time, maybe we’d consider his opinion. That was one of the comments famed NESN Bruins play by play announcer, and possible insane person, Jack Edwards had for Peter...

When You Had a Bad Day...

You've heard the news by now, that Theo's white whale got away, snatched up from the open sea by his old nemesis the S.S. Yankees. The contract numbers are absurd (7 years/$155M, opt out after 4 years), but we knew that eyeball popping was going to be required once the dust settled. There's been no confirmation that the Cubs were willing to be as absurd, although the...

Jack Edwards takes a swipe at... Peter Gammons?!?

Our favorite crazy hockey announcer is back with another typically spellbinding moment in the broadcast booth.  NESN announcer Jack Edwards gets more revved up for hockey fights than he does for hockey games as he challenges his inner Howard Cosell.  But there was something that stood out as he called this recent scrap between Jordan Nolan and Milan Lucic.

Jack Edwards Makes Fart Noise, Taunts Peter Gammons After Lucic Fight

A.B. After Milan Lucic pounded LA Kings Center, Jordan Nolan, for a “high hit” on Torey Krug, Boston Bruins’ NESN announcer, Jack Edwards, made some interesting comments – even for Edwards. This is the same guy who compared a Bruins vs. Canadiens Game 7 to the Boston Tea Party. Edwards didn’t seem to enjoy Gammons’ tweet on Sunday about the NHL being a minor sport. “What...
