I’m not going to go into any scouting reports or stuff, that’ll be for the Giants Top 5 prospects - assuming Bumgarner makes it, of course.
I have a hunch he might.
I just can’t remember any pitcher so consistently dominating for this kind of stretch at any level. In his last ten starts:
- 67 IP, 69 […]
Let’s take a look at this monster deal. It looks like:
To the Red Sox; Jason Bay
To the Dodgers: Manny Ramirez, a lot of $
To the Pirates: 3B Andy LaRoche, RHRP Craig Hansen, OF Brandon Moss, RHSP Bryan Morris
So let’s look at this by team.
The Red Sox got rid of a giant headache in Manny Ramirez, […]
… for Casey Kotchman and Stephen Marek.
This is a great trade for the Angels, obviously. Teixeira is a substantial upgrade over Kotchman for the balance of the season, and Marek isn’t exactly a huge part of their future. If they re-sign Tex, great, if not, they’ll have two picks to console themselves with. However, that […]
Casey Blake has been traded to the Dodgers for prospects RHP Jon Meloan and C Carlos Santana. The Indians are sending cash to the Dodgers to help pay off the rest of Blake’s contract this year.
Blake is essentially what Xavier Nady is, except five years older. He can be counted on to produce position-average offense […]
According to a lot of sources (BP, Heyman, Rosenthal), The Pirates have traded Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte to the Yanks for Jose Tabata, Ross Ohlendorf, George Kontos and Phil Coke.
This is not a good trade for the Pirates, and I’m extremely disappointed. Ever since Neal Huntington took over for the Pirates, I’ve been very […]
There was a prospect trade involving the A’s. Did anybody think I wasn’t going to talk about this?
Christina Kahrl over at BP is far from a fan of this trade, but I think she’s looking at this the wrong way. Perhaps people’s hopes were brought up after Jayson Stark suggested a Harden package would have […]
Injuries have given two prospects the opportunity that the Rays didn’t want to.
To open the season, uber-prospect Evan Longoria (#3 here at The Hub) was demoted in favour of the has-a-chance-to- be-decent-but-not-quite-uber Willy Aybar (career 110 OPS+, but 97 in his last healthy year).
Jeff Niemann (unlisted, could’ve made a top 105 list) was demoted behind […]
I am far more excited about this than I should be.
My first season as a baseball fan was 2001. If you remember, Randy Johnson was coming off of three straight years of 300 or more strikeouts, and 2001 was as big of a year as any. In 249.2 innings, Randy Johnson put up a […]
This is a very strange and disappointing story, so stay with me.
Braves prospect and probable 2009 starting CF Jordan Schafer has been suspended 50 games for steroid usage. Many minor leaguers have received steroid suspensions, but Schafer is the first truly big name. I have him ranked 22nd, BA has him 25th, BP has […]
