On the first stop of his spring training tour, Mike talks to John Farrell and David Ross about whether the cutter caused problems for Jon Lester.
Our MLB Network Radio tour takes me to all 15 spring camps in Florida, so I figured I’d jot down some thoughts along the way.
Sort of a Journal, if you will. We start in Red Sox camp… Read the full article...

After 2012, what should we unlearn about the Red Sox?
One of the difficult parts about fantasy baseball is dealing with perception. When a player hits a home run, it feels like that’s what they’ll always do. Put another way, do you take a guy who just homered out of your lineup? No, of course not. He just homered . Therefore he’ll continue to homer. That’s a good way to lose. I know because that’s what I do best in fantasy sports. The way to do it, so I’ve been told, is ignore that homer. Let your understanding of the player’s value over the course of the season dictate your decisions. A single event, in this case the homer, shouldn’t enter into it. Yet it always does and I always pay the price.

David Wright disputes reports about the state of his extension talks, the Dodgers are determined to go big for Zack Greinke, and the Red Sox shop a player they traded for less than a year ago.
After watching the Angels bullpen blow an American League-high 22 saves last year, general manager
was determined to fortify his late-inning staff. DiPoto made his first move to that end on Tuesday morning, Jerry DiPoto striking a one-year deal with , who missed the 2012 season while recovering from Ryan Madson surgery. Meanwhile, after adding Tommy John to the Cubs rotation earlier this month, Theo Epstein Scott Baker snagged another low-cost righty in , who will reportedly Scott Feldman earn $6-7 million next year.
Here are three other rumors that surfaced amid those signings:

Looking for examples of a similarly strange managerial move.
pinch-hit for Bobby Valentine with two outs and a 2-2 count in the seventh inning of a scoreless game against the Blue Jays. Iglesias wasn’t hurt. Toronto hadn’t changed pitchers. However, the situation had changed slightly: on the last pitch Iglesias saw, Jose Iglesias stole second. Iglesias is a weak hitter (at that point, he was 2-for-28 on the season), so with a runner in scoring position, Valentine called for Pedro Ciriaco to drive him in. Had Ciriaco not stolen second, Valentine would have left Iglesias in to play defense. Maybe he wished he had after Nava grounded out on the next pitch. Daniel Nava Read the full article...
