San Francisco Giants interested in Aroldis Chapman

The San Francisco Giants have been connected to several big name arms as the trade deadline approaches, including the likes of Cole Hamels. Behind Madison Bumgarner, their rotation leaves much to be desired (although the return of Jake Peavy has helped a bit). While it appears unlikely that the team will add a big name starter (ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick calls it a “long shot...

Why are Tony Cruz and Pete Kozma still on the Cardinals?

Excuse me while I complain about the team with the best record in baseball(and fans for that matter, according to popular opinion and Deadspin). The St. Louis Cardinals have won a lot of games(63 to be exact) and when a writer picks at that shiny emblem of greatness, he can be scolded. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago via KSDK, John Mozeliak’s roster management is troubling at...

New York Mets stay busy, acquire Tyler Clippard from Oakland Athletics

The New York Mets made another solid move on Monday, when they acquired closer Tyler Clippard and cash from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for minor league right-hander Casey Meisner. While the Mets have been in heavy pursuit of an outfielder in recent days, they found another way to deepen their team by adding a veteran arm to their bullpen. The 30-year-old Clippard went 1...

Cubs Fans: DON’T PANIC (redux)

So I know what you’re thinking.  Bottom of the ninth, down a run after the Chicago Cubs bullpen had blown yet another save against a subpar-on-paper team.  The Cubs, in fact, were down to their last out in the game.  But before we get into that, let’s talk about a pregame quote: ."It's every fan's right to panic, but we can't." -@Cubs manager Joe Maddon on the pregame show...

Cubs 9, Rockies 8 (7/27/15)

OSS: MY EMOTIONS Three up 1. Kris Bryant saved the day with a walkoff bomb in the bottom of the ninth, after the pen had blown the lead. He ended the game with a WPA of 0.98. 2. The offense woke up in the fourth inning, batting around on a previously-cruising Jorge de la Rosa. My dogs were very disappointed that the Cubs did all this scoring without any home runs, because no cookies...

Video: Kris Bryant hits first career walk-off home run

The Chicago Cubs were swept by an awful Philadelphia Phillies team over the weekend and appeared to be heading into the tank. On Monday night things looked bleak again against the Colorado Rockies, but rookie phenom Kris Bryant turned that narrative on its head with one swing. The Cubs led 7-4 heading into the top of the ninth, but the Rockies scored four runs off of Jason Motte...

When Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig stormed into Major League Baseball as a 22-year-old and posted a WAR of 5.0 in just 104 games while galvanizing the entire Los Angeles Dodgers franchise?

Blue Jays Hope Tulo Makes It Through Customs Without Injury

Late last night, Troy Tulowitzki was traded to the Blue Jays. Both hammys, his quads, his obliques, his elbow tendons, both groins. Why does he have two groins again? Maybe we don't need to know. The Rockies getting rid of Tulo makes me think of when a kid is dropped off at the airport to fly alone. A flight attendant walks with the kid, trying to make conversation, waits with...
