    A New York Team Didn't Sign Roy Oswalt?

    The Texas Rangers are probably the best team in baseball, and that is, in large part, because they are also the smartest. Nolan Ryan took a gamble today, and it's the best kind of gamble: one that doesn't cost a lot of money and one with a good probability of delivering some dividends. Roy Oswalt i ... More >>

    Michael Pineda: Let's Hold The Worry

    What a difference four miles per hour can make. Actually, three. If Michael Pineda's fastball down in Tampa was slamming into catcher Russell Martin's mitt at just 95 mph -- and I say "just" because it was known last year to hit 96 and sometimes 97 -- Pineda would not be on the verge of pushing Ma ...

    With Cliff Lee, Will the Phillies Rotation Be the Best Ever?

    ​Does the acquisition of Cliff Lee give the Philadelphia Phillies the best rotation in baseball history? That's a little premature, but you can certainly make a good argument. Right now, Roy Halliday, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels certainly look to rank with the 1954 Cleveland In ... More >>

    Jockbeat: Mets Shut Out in Halladay Contest For Distance in Florida?

    ​Curiouser and curiouser. The story of how NYC's two teams -- with the most potential revenue in baseball -- could have been shut out of deals involving the three best free agent pitchers in baseball seems as baffling today as it did yesterday.

    ​By now you may have heard about the huge three-team swap involving the Toronto Blue Jays, Philadelphia Phillies, and Seattle Mariners.

    Mets Keep Manuel, Minaya; Said to Refuse Halladay

    Mets general manager Omar Minaya (pictured) confirms that both he and manager Jerry Manuel have been told they'll keep their jobs next year.

    Cheek, in Review: 7 Days of Runnin' Scared

    The Sotomayor hearings commenced with protesters. Chuck Schumer did his bit. Lindsey Graham copped out, or so the rightwingers said -- so he hassled Sonia on her temperament. Jeff Sessions tried to get cute. A rightwing Representative and a "flaming liberal" discussed the case amicably. Finally ... More >>

    Jockbeat: Can the Yanks Get Halladay? Of Course They Can

    Can the Yankees get Roy Halladay? Of course they can.  Toronto GM J.P. Ricciardi says, "We're not inclined to move him, but we're going to see what's out there." That means: "Yes, we're willing to trade him." Do the Blue Jays want too much for him? Of course they do. No matter what they wa ... More >>

    From a non-groaner perspective, Roy Halliday was in great form and the Blue Jays had a good night. Yankees bloggers see it differently. The Yanks' loss to the Jays last night is, you guessed it, "now the front runner for worst loss of the season," says Pinstripe Alley. "The Yanks continue to lose t ... More >>
