Never trust a man with two first names.
The Situation: , Marco Hernandez and Pablo Sandoval are all on the DL and the Red Sox don’t need a fifth starter until Saturday so they have a chance to add a bat. Welcome to the bigs, Brock Holt . Sam Travis
The origin story of Marlins Man, Padres Fall Apart, and the moral certitude of Bronson Arroyo.
A handy guide for how to enjoy baseball amidst a) the nuclear holocaust, b) massive cultural appropriation, or c) a widespread epidemic.
A Brewers prospects gets a lesson in justice, minor league teams carve out niche markets through naming, and baseball history, told by the players who made it.
The backstory behind mascot-on-mascot crime, the irony of cinema and minor league baseball colliding, and how ballplayers are speaking with their eyes.
Bad days are compared, bad players are broken down (and broken), and bad memories are cherished.

Can the Indians overcome their beat-up rotation? Can the Red Sox offense carry them?

Despite the big names being off the market, there's still plenty of activity to come and these teams still have work left to do.
So, the Cubs have won the winter, and are probably the best team in baseball. That’s one thing we have pretty well nailed down. It’s easy to talk about the Cubs, but you’re exhausted by talk about the Cubs by now. Surely, you can’t stand just one more minute of Cubs talk. You want to hear about
your team. You want to know who’s going to sign the next big free agent. You want to know what the teams who aren’t anywhere near done are going to do between now and spring training, not how pretty the Cubs (who probably, though not certainly, are done) are sitting.
That’s an invitation to be titillated, misled, and left wanting, but okay. It’s worth doing. For all the talk about how this winter would be bonkers, we’re hurtling toward Christmas without anything quite like what happened over the same span last winter.
was traded again; so was Shelby Miller . A ton of starting and relief pitchers have gotten paid wild sums.
