            Pablo Sandavol is seeking at least a six-year deal, his agent, Gustavo Vasquez, told the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday. “Pablo is 28,” Vasquez said, according to the Chronicle. “He is still young.

Mets360 MLB Project: Chillin’ With The Champs

If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen that we here at Mets360 were engaged in a project where each of us got to be the General Manager of an existing MLB team…for a week.

Ryan Vogelsong Is Getting The Biggest Velocity Boost

Take a look at Ryan Vogelsong‘s career fastball velocity from Brooks Baseball: So, yeah, he always gets a velocity boost when October rolls around. When I asked him about it, he mentioned making some “adjustments mechanically” that helped him this time around. But he admitted: “At the same time, there’s adrenaline, no question… It’s going […]

MLB Game Picks - Saturday: October 25, 2014

I was correct and I was wrong. I ultimately picked the Giants, which was wrong. But I did say the Giants would be in deep trouble if they did not get the lead off of Jeremy Guthrie in the first five innings. They did not and that was the correct part. Still, it ends my win streak and instead of finally bouncing back to .500 (from the lower depths), I am back to two games under...

Bochy starting Vogelsong in Game 4, not ace on short rest, is right call

SAN FRANCISCO — If it was an elimination game, OK, you try to save the season. You ignore that San Francisco left-hander Madison Bumgarner has never pitched on three days' rest. You ignore the history of starting pitchers struggling on short rest in October. You go for broke, knowing there might not be a tomorrow. Game 4 is not an elimination game. The Giants trail the World...

Royals Take World Series Lead With 3-2 Win Over Giants At AT&T Park

SAN FRANCISCO — Sparkling defense, a stingy bullpen and just enough timely hitting. That winning formula of fundamental baseball has put the Kansas City Royals ahead in the World Series. They even looked comfortable in the tricky territory at unfamiliar AT&T Park. Jeremy Guthrie outpitched fellow World Series newcomer Tim Hudson, four Royals relievers combined on four hitless...

Vargas to take on Vogelsong in Game 4 of Series

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Even though Jason Vargas will be making his World Series debut for Kansas City in Game 4, the Fall Classic atmosphere in San Francisco will not be foreign to him.

World Series preview: Will Giants or Royals win it all?

Well, this wasn’t supposed to happen. The San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals will square off in the 110th World Series beginning Tuesday. The matchup is one of the most improbable in history, as both teams won less than 90 games during the regular season and needed to win a winner-take-all wild card game. Perhaps fighting for their playoff lives from the onset benefitted...

Brian Sabean’s Underated Moves

Resigning Ryan Vogelsong #455505328 / gettyimages.com Resigned last off season for a one-year $5 million, this is starting to look like a bargain. I don’t think anyone will argue that he has hasn’t been a solid fifth starter. ( 8-10, 3.90 ERA and 1.26 WHIP). Especially with Matt Cain splitting time between the DL and being terrible his signing was invaluable. Otherwise Sabean...
