Mets, Brewers trade for Carlos Gomez falls apart

Earlier tonight, news began to break about a trade between the Mets and Brewers that would send Carlos Gomez from Milwaukee to New York. Hell, we even wrote about it, and we generally don’t do that until something is official. Naturally…this trade fell apart over concerns about some of the medicals involved. You know what […]

Cole Hamels is getting traded to the Texas Rangers

The trade has seemingly years in the making, but it’s finally happening – the Philadelphia Phillies are trading Cole Hamels to the Texas Rangers. All in all, I think this was a solid deal for the Phillies, and probably the best they could have expected after all of the chaos surrounding Hamels in recent years. Yes, […]

Mets get their big bat, nabbing Carlos Gomez from Brewers

Going into Wednesday’s play, the Mets were only one game behind the Nationals in the NL East. That close to the top, general manager Sandy Alderson had to make a move and add some punch to a lineup that has scored the fewest runs (353) in MLB. With several slugging outfielders on the market before […]

The Tigers are officially “rebooting”

The question about whether or not the Detroit Tigers are buyers or sellers has reportedly been answered – they’re selling. Specifically, they’re “rebooting” and listening on some of their impending free agents, including both David Price and Yoenis Cespedes.

Diamondbacks interested in Aroldis Chapman for some reason

If your team is three games under .500, seven games out of first place, and 6.5 games out of a playoff spot, you know what you need? AN ELITE CLOSER! While it may seem ridiculous, that’s apparently the logic going through the head of Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart, who confirmed his team is interested in […]

Angels fill outfield, add David Murphy & David DeJesus

The Angels have recently stormed back to take over the AL West lead, largely thanks to their offense, but outside of Mike Trout, the outfield has been a major issue. Collin Cowgill is on the 60 day DL and Matt Joyce is on the 7 day concussion DL, but the Angels may be happy about […]


Phillies agree to deal sending Jonathan Papelbon to Nationals

The Jonathan Papelbon saga is over. The Philadelphia Phillies finally pulled the trigger on trading their closer, agree to deal him within the NL East to the Washington Nationals for AA pitcher Nick Pivetta. Interestingly enough, as part of the agreement, Papelbon will be Washington’s closer in 2015 and his option for 2016 will become guaranteed. […]

The Blue Jays offense gets even better with Troy Tulowitzki acquisition

This is a sentence I can’t believe I’m typing – the Toronto Blue Jays have acquired shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and reliever LaTroy Hawkins from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for shortstop Jose Reyes, minor league pitchers Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and Jesús Tinoco. The Blue Jays lineup, somehow, just got even more potent. Tulowitzki will enter the […]

Rockies blow minds, trade Troy Tulowitzki to Blue Jays

Remember all the talk about the Colorado Rockies not wanting to trade Troy Tulowitzki because he was the face of the franchise? Yeah, it was a bunch of crap. Tulowitzki is heading to the Toronto Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and a package of minor leaguers. Tulowitzki struggled early on for the Rockies this season, […]

Johnny Cueto gives the Royals their ace in the hole

The Kansas City Royals finally added a true number one starter to their pitching staff. And as a result, they just may leave the rest of the American League in their wake. Johnny Cueto was the best right handed starter available on the market and the Royals acted swiftly and decisively to get him, sending […]
