Unsigned 2013 Draftees

Last weekend, I was trying to find a source for information on unsigned 2013 amateur draftees by team. I found a couple that had up-to-date-ish information, but each source was missing some...

His leave of absence for medical reasons will extend through the end of the season.

Jorge Soler, Free Agent


Jorge Soler is officially a free agent.

Where In The World Is John Burnson?


Does anyone know what happened to John Burnson? A couple of years ago he was publishing Heater Magazine and writing at The Hardball Times. He seems to have completely disappeared. I hope nothing bad happened.


It's Tanner Time

With Felix slated to miss at least a couple of week (let's hope it's just a couple) with his high ankle sprain, I'm hoping that JG and crew will give Phillip Tanner some prime time touches at RB. I...

An anonymous "baseball source" claims that the Rangers will throw a "boatload of money" at Sabathia if he opts out of his contract.

Derek Holland's Glove


He really has Dutch Oven on his glove! Screen cap credit to Rich Anderson.

Rangers High A To Myrtle Beach


Per Baseball America's Twitter feed, the Rangers' High A affiliate is moving across the country to Myrtle Beach. Goodbye Cal League, hello Carolina League!

AP: Rangers Sign Luke Jackson


This is the only confirmation I've found, but it's pretty spare of details. Would love to see confirmation on Ragira and Davis, too, but I don't think those guys are going to sign.

Judge Moves Auction Date to August 4th


Interesting nugget at the end: "Greenberg-Ryan will receive a $15 million 'breakup' fee if it loses, Lynn said, to cover their expenses to date and 'partly to shut them up' -- in other words, forestalling possible legal action." Sounds like Judge Lynn is tired of everyone involved in This Thing.


First Thoughts On The "It's Too Hot To Win" Theory

As noted here and elsewhere this past week, Rangers pitcher Derek Holland drew some attention with a quote regarding the role of the August heat and humidity in his last outing at The Ballpark....

Arangure: Guillermo Pimentel Signs With Mariners


"Trainer confirms OF Guillermo Pimentel signed with #Mariners for $2m. Contract was signed as the clock struck midnight on July 2"


Padilla Through Pitch f/x

No one is happier than I am that it's getting easier than ever to grab Pitch f/x data; when we see the result of pitching performances visualized it can at least let us know what it looks like when...

Pictures From Game 3 Versus The Indians


Here's a link to a Flickr photo set of pictures I took at the Indians game yesterday afternoon.


OT: The One True Ho Signs With The Phillies

ESPN.Com, aka TMZ Sports, has taken time out from playing he-said-she-said over the Dallas Cowboys to report that Chan Ho Park has signed a one year $2.5 million dollar deal with the Philadelphia...


OT: Former Ranger Hideki Irabu Arrested

Our bullpen is gassed. We need some disposable arms for the stretch. I've peered into the crystal ball that is the New York Post and found the answer: Hideki Irabu. Seems as though he could use...


Joba & His MRI On Their Way To Birmingham

For those non-medheads out there in the audience, when a pitcher takes his MRI results to Birmingham, Alabama, it's to go see Dr. James Andrews. Per ESPN: ARLINGTON, Texas -- New York Yankees...


A Tale Of Three Joshes?

G/F Josh Childress signed a 3 year $20 million dollar deal with Greek team Olympiakos today, bolting the Atlanta Hawks for the Euroleague. Childress' deal sounds sweet...3 years, $20 million after...


Neftali Feliz...Andrus and Borbon, Too

Last night my friend Rich and I ventured across to Dr. Pepper Ballpark to see Neftali Feliz pitch against the Arkansas Travelers. Coincidence that the Angels' Texas League affiliate is in town at...


OT - Brett Myers Demoted To AAA

Since the Phightin' Phils were just in town and there was some good vitriol directed at Brett Myers here on LSB, I thought it would be relevant to share this: If you've had a bad day, then maybe...


I'm Convinced Benoit Is Injured

This fanpost started out last night as a "it's all Mark Connor's fault that Joaquin Benoit is on the skids this season" rant. I admit up front I don't like Mark Connor; I think he's a lousy...


Warriors, Davis Far Apart On Contract

Warriors' PG Baron Davis and the Warriors management are apparently pretty far apart on the details of his contract extension. How far? Apparently far enough that Davis is considering opting out of...


Tom Hicks: How Not To Win Friends And Influence People

The Liverpool mess just keeps escalating from one level of meltdown to the next. From feuding with the fans to feuding with Liverpool's business manager, Tom is now feuding with fellow owner George...
