Swihart is a catcher who can hit and while his bat is advanced, it's not so advanced that a position switch wouldn't result in a dramatic reduction in his value. Yes, Biggio was a catcher as was two-t more »

The headline of this article is so stupid, only a sportswriter could have written it. more »

That's because the saga of millionaires negotiating with billionaires over amounts of cash that stagger the imagination is not exactly a heart wrenching story. Volin's fanboy article, expressing dism more »

This is what a Sunday baseball column is supposed to look like.

Wouldn't be a Shank column without a gratuitous shot a someone. This time its "know-it-all" Bill James. Maybe Dan meant "knows-a-lot-more-than-me" Bill James. Probably not.

The rules of negotiation are established through the collective bargaining of the NFLPA and the NFL owners. Are they slanted toward one party or the other? You be the judge, but when Gaspar says "Wi more »

Just curious, Dan, but why must Greg Schiano be a "stooge"? Just can't get through a column without a gratuitous disparaging reference, can you?

Ah! The equipment truck is poised to leave, pitchers and catchers are soon to assemble, and David Ortiz is bellyaching about his contract. In Boston, these are known as the rites of spring.

Why all the vitriol? Is this not a question that many fans have pondered? I know I and others have. Tough being a writer these days.

Why the gratuitous shot at the Patriots and by extension, BB. "has it all and knows it all" ? Really? C'mon, Chris
Posted 12/13/2013 08:55:00 EST
Really, Chris. Just watch the games. It will be better for everybody.

But Adam did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night

Good of Bob to make his comparison of the two players while totally disregarding the fact that, by any measure, including untrained eyeballs, Trout was a near spectacular defender and Cabrera may have more »

He should be paid according to the market and BB's decision on whether that market price is compatible with optimum roster construction. That's it. Any other motivation is counter to the best intere more »

1. The Sox are not getting King Felix. They don't have nearly enough to offer. 2. Ellsbury for Andrus is laughable. Sox fans overestimate Ellsbury's value while having no appreciation for the value more »

This column is the inevitable result of what happens when even the best sportswriters, and make no mistake, Bedard is among them, stray from the areas in which they possess a modicum of expertise and more »

Do I remember Joe Kapp? Of course. I even remember that he was right-handed. more »

I'm not sure how trading Seymour makes BB "bloodless" unless, of course, Dan subscibes to Jose Canseco's diatribe indicting the Oakland A's. Remember Jose's line "that's the trouble with Oakland. All more »
