Schilling was making a joke. Apparently, he's been friends with Smoltz, a well known conservative, for 20 years.

Good article. So many in the sports media rely on access to players to do their work and as a result, take the players position on matters such as PEDs, salary, and how they should be treated. For Gam more »

Sizemore is not a candidate for the "pick one guy and leave him there" solution you advocate. Given his health issues, the Sox are not likely to play him more than three games in a row for the foresee more »

Is this obstruction or interference?

If they sox were lucky, Iggy would have become Brendan Ryan. I doubt any Mariner's fans would be on a ledge if he were traded under similar circumstances.

Iggy was fun to watch on flashy plays, but he projected to be an overall liability with his inability to consistently hit major and minor league pitching. Brendan Ryan is arguably the best defensive more »

Gomes hits lefties well and is 6-13 against Buehrle. I think Farrell wants to make sure he gets maximum ABs against him.

Nice, Pete. Bunting for a hit, I see.

Great article Pete. FINALLY an article about, you know, the game of baseball and how the players are actually playing it. No chicken, no beer, no speculation about players' attitudes and motivations more »

FWIW, for the most part, I agree with Verducci's conclusions and reasoning. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/mlb/news/20130108/hall-of-fame-ballot-steroids-mark-mcgwire-barry-bonds-roger-clemens/?sct= more »

So the Indians get Trevor Bauer for Choo??? Gee, I wonder where we could find a young center fielder with one year of control managed by Boras to trade for a stud young starter?? Wake up, Ben. The more »

â¢The Red Sox signed Venezuelan left-hander Dedgar Jimenez, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports. The 16-year-old obtained a bonus of $175K. Jimenez has a "David Wells-type frame" but good pitchabi more »

I can't remember seeing so many flat pitches grooved right down broadway. Its amazing the score wasn't higher. more »

We have been hearing "its a critical series" for months. The dog is licking your face -- time to wake up. We are 99 games in, in last place, and below .500. This is an unprecedented sellers market wit more »
Posted 07/26/2012 04:16:11 EDT
This is a particularly good year to be sellers as there are an unusually high number of teams with a shot at the playoffs who have not been there recently. I'm sure some of them would overpay for a cr more »

I take him at his word. When I was watching the game last nite with an NL fan I remarked that Verlander was overthrowing. His ball was sailing and he didn't locate and was lighting up the gun. I think more »

From the standpoint of the teams who make it to the WS, any system is going to be somewhat unfair either because it alternates year to year and you have no control over that, or because the team with more »

They sent the pitching coach out to talk with him in the first, I assume, to tell him to take it seriously. He should have gotten the message before he took the mound. Then if he played the fool like more »
Posted 07/11/2012 10:49:22 EDT
Giving it to the team with the best record doesn't make it fair because one team will be playing in a tougher division and the other team will be playing in a weaker division. The old way was to alten more »
