Jason Cole catches up with the Mariners' top pitching prospect.
There’s no doubting Mariners prospect
’s immense raw talent. Ranked by Baseball Prospectus as Taijuan Walker Seattle’s no. 1 prospect (and no. 9 in baseball) entering this season, the right-hander has all the tools a scout wants to see in a potential big-league starter. Walker and his sky-high ceiling have been well-publicized in recent years; he isn’t exactly a pop-up prospect. Read the full article...

The fourth installment of a five-part series on the pressing questions confronting each team in 2013.
In the week leading up to Opening Day, we're asking and answering three questions about each team in a five-part series ordered by descending Playoff Pct from the Playoff Odds Report. Today, we continue with a look at the group of six teams with the second-worst odds of winning at least a Wild Card. As a reminder, you can find links to our preview podcasts for each team here.

Sofa-scouting the mechanics of two high-profile pitching prospects.
first edition of Bush League, I discussed the viability of sofa-scouting high-level prospects by scouring the archives of MiLB.tv (for a modest subscription price). I also noted the advantages when evaluating pitchers as compared to position players, given the additional off-camera variables that exist for scouting hitting and defense, along with the caveat that pitchers can have volatile mechanics during their development years. The subjects of the original piece included the top two picks from the 2011 draft, and Gerrit Cole , and today we’ll take a look at another Pirate-Mariner combination of high-end pitching prospects. Danny Hultzen
and Jameson Taillon were both high-school products of the 2010 draft. Taillon was selected at number two overall by the Pirates, behind top pick Taijuan Walker , and Walker was chosen 41 picks later by the Mariners during the supplemental round. I reviewed both pitchers back in July with a brief study of their Bryce Harper back-to-back one-inning stints in the Futures Game, and the early returns were impressive. The mechanics of minor-league players are fickle and a pitcher might show different looks on any given day, especially when making a rare relief appearance in a nationally-televised showcase, so the offseason presents a great opportunity to take a deeper look into the performances of these two high-profile prospects.

The Orioles play deep into the night and emerge with yet another extra-inning victory.
The Tuesday, er, Wednesday Takeaway
It took five hours and 44 minutes, 16 pitchers, and 536 pitches, but when all was said and done at Safeco Field early Wednesday morning, the Orioles came away with their 14th consecutive extra-inning victory and their third in a row overall.
kept the visitors off the scoreboard for the first eight innings of the game and carried a 2-0 lead into the ninth thanks to Erasmo Ramirez ’s fourth-inning homer, but he could not complete the shutout. A two-run single by Miguel Olivo , off closer Chris Davis , knotted the tally at 2-2. Then the madness began. Tom Wilhelmsen Read the full article...
