Marmol's market

1

The Chicago Cubs have already prepared their closer for a trade. The team has told Carlos Marmol to expect a deal to happen, just not before the season starts.

Mo's moving on

3

It was the worst-kept secret in baseball, but Mariano Rivera has officially announced he will retire after the 2013 season.

AL Central Notes: Sox Sale(ing)

+

The American League Central has been busy in the rumor mill lately. They also jumped in to the contract news arena with the Chris Sale extension. But there's sure to be more from the AL Central to...

Buckel up

2

Sometimes, you can have it all. No, it's not a tag line for a cheesy movie. Cody Buckel, a pitching prospect in the Rangers' organization, pitches professionally and can officially call himself an...

USA vs. Italy schedule and preview

Italy looks to continue its surprising run while the United States tried to bounce back. While Italy is all but guaranteed a spot in the next round in Miami, Team USA could soon be facing...

Mexico drops U.S. 5-2

+

Now it feels real. The Unites States has finally played a game. Unfortunately, they weren't able to get past Mexico.

Zimmerman on target for OD

+

Although Ryan Zimmerman still had a decent season for the Nationals last year, the club is excited to get him back completely healthy. Zimmerman is getting closer, and he is on target for Opening...

Yankees: Why not Cuddyer?

WBC: Japan's thriling victory

As the big guns start really getting into the action, we have been given some great games in the World Baseball Classic. Today's games were no different.

Cash for Carp

+

The Seattle Mariners still haven't received their final compensation for trading away Mike Carp. That will change by the end of the month.

When Puigs don't fly

+

Forget about that east coast bias for a minute and come out west. There are prospects trying to make the big league club, surgery preventing tournament play, and a veteran closer looking for a job.

Rockies wanted Lowe

+

It's a little too late now, but the Colorado Rockies wanted Derek Lowe. Instead, Lowe signed with the Texas Rangers.

Bedard's butt strain

2

There are plenty of perfectly acceptable strains and sprains in baseball. A wrist strain, an elbow strain, and ankle strain, etc. But a butt strain?

NL Central movin' and achin'

+

Time to get caught up on all that is the National League Central. Injuries, trade rumors, more injuries; that's how the Central rolls.

NY, NY: the pain and questions

+

The New York Yankees are in full-on crisis mode. But they're not the only team in town. The Mets are looking for answers and trying to get better everyday.

Cubs news & rumors

+

The lovable losers are going to have a hard time becoming the lovable winners with all the injuries the team is faced with. Updates on Ian Stewart, Starlin Castro, and Matt Garza.

Dick's gives me goosebumps

+

It's not often that a commercial can give you goosebumps, but Dick's Sporting Goods nailed it with this one (there's a joke to be made there somewhere).

A week of rumors, injuries, and contracts

+

The first full week of spring training usually gives us plenty of injury news. However, this past week had contract news galore...and injury news.

Garza's gone 'til May

+

So much for that trade value. Matt Garza could find himself on the DL until May, and the Cubs could find themselves without a trade partner come July.

Lohse on Rangers' Radar?

+

Despite the fact that no team seems truly interested in Kyle Lohse right now, the Texas Rangers have not completely ruled the pitcher out.

WBC Sunday schedule

It's time for countries to fight for supremacy. The World Baseball Classic is underway and we've got all your coverage here.

Werth's Beard Progression

+

Imagine a stop motion movie showing the progression of Jayson Werth's beard. Now remember that I can't do that, and settle for this.

Best of Blogs: Week 9

+

Is Ian Kennedy an ace? Can Adrian Gonzalaez bounce back? Is Delmon Young the answer? We have more questions than answers in Best of Blogs this week.

Papa Grande heading back to Detroit?

+

If it were up to Jim Leyland, Jose Valverde would be back already. The Detroit Tigers' manager has expressed his desire to have the club's former closer back on the roster.

Cano's cash and more

+

The New York Yankees aren't quite in panic mode. They have Mariano Rivera coming back after all. However, if that's all they needed, things would be so much easier. Here are some updates from...

Ramirez sprains knee

+

The Milwaukee Brewers have already had a serious knee injury this spring with Mat Gamel. Now, they have another knee injury with Aramis Ramirez. Luckily, Ramirez's knee injury does not appear to be...

Trout's trapped

16

Mike Trout is entering his second year of Major League play. No one expected him to get a big raise, but Trout's agent is not happy with the amount of money his client will make in 2013.

AL Central Update

+

Jim Thome trying to be king of the American League Central. At least it seems that way. The future Hall of Famer headlines our AL Central division news.

Breakout Braves

+

The Atlanta Braves have an uncanny ability to continue winning. Sure, they haven't won the division lately, but they are still a team to be reckoned with. With a little bit of help and production...
