REPORT: Dodgers Out Of Lester Sweepstakes

According to Hall of Fame sportswriter Peter Gammons, the Dodgers are no longer in the hunt for Jon Lester—or Cole Hamels or David Price, for that matter. Reportedly, the Denizens of Chavez Ravine are now concentrating on the back end of their rotation and their bench. Of course, all of this could change in a nano-second.

Cardinals Acquire Justin Masterson for Some Reason

The trade deadline is a mere 26 hours away and it looks like the first domino has fallen; Justin Masterson has been traded to the Cardinals according to trusted MLB source Peter Gammons.  Masterson was not the source of many rumors and his 5.51 ERA may have something to do with that. The issue that I have with this is that the Cardinals already have 7 capable starting pitchers already...

Tonight’s Game is in Xandervision

As the great Peter Gammons pointed out, since the Drew signing was announced, Xander Bogaerts is hitting .390 with a 1.042 OPS. That tells me two things: nothing motivates like the threat of being replaced, and Xander Bogaerts is the motherf%^king man. The X is exhibiting more and more of the brilliance we saw flashes of during the 2013 playoffs. And, like Chad Finn, I can’t wait...

Gammons: Baseball needs to make dramatic changes to pick up pace; relievers must face 3 batters

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.

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...
