Posted on June 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The best player in baseball is officially sidelined with an injury. The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Mookie Betts on the 10-day DL Friday night because of an abdominal strain on his left side. The move comes after Betts has missed the team’s last five games. However, the […]

Posted on March 19, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite winning the AL East with a 93-69 record the past two seasons, the Boston Red Sox haven’t won a postseason series since claiming the 2013 World Series. The natives in Bean Town are starting to get restless, even as the competition in the American League gets […]

Posted on February 20, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine With spring training getting underway, the Tampa Bay Rays are working on a fire sale. After parting ways with Jake Odorizzi and Corey Dickerson last week and Evan Longoria earlier this offseason, the Rays have now traded away outfielder Steven Souza Jr. In a three-team trade, the […]

Posted on February 19, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The biggest fish in the free agent pond has finally been caught. After a long, drawn-out saga, J.D. Martinez has finally agreed to a deal with the Boston Red Sox. According to reports, the two sides have reached a deal on a five-year contract worth $110 million. […]

Posted on February 13, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After a long and fairly uneventful winter, spring training is finally here. Outside of the Miami Marlins trading away their top players, there hasn’t been a ton of player movement this offseason. However, things are finally starting to pick up on that front. Even with more movement […]

Posted on February 8, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Everyone seems to be chiming in on baseball’s slow free agent market. In recent days, a war of words has developed between Major League Baseball and its players. Last week, agent Brodie Van Wagenen got things started with a suggestion of collusion among the 30 owners. Earlier […]

Posted on February 7, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite a proverbial game of chicken between free agent J.D. Martinez and the Boston Red Sox that has seemingly been going on all offseason, the odds have always been good that Martinez would end up in Boston when all is said and done. However, recent reports indicate […]

Posted on February 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine It seems hard to believe, but the start of spring training is less than two weeks ago. It’s hard to believe in large part because so many of the top free agents remain unsigned. There are a lot of theories as to why the market has been […]

Posted on February 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine A slow free agent marke this offseason has not sat well with MLB players, even the ones under contract. Prominent agent Brodie Van Wagenen spoke out on the issue Friday in an open letter he posted via Twitter. In the letter, Van Wagenen says that this year’s stagnant […]

Posted on January 11, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The baseball offseason has been historically slow this winter. Unfortunately, there appears to be no end in sight. At the top of the market is outfielder J.D. Martinez. In many ways, teams and other free agents are waiting for him to sign to set the market price. […]

Posted on January 10, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Miami Marlins have already traded away three of their core players this offseason, and they don’t appear to be done. Recent reports indicate that the Marlins are still willing to trade several players. More importantly, there are plenty of teams interested in acquiring several of their […]

Posted on January 2, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The baseball hot stove has been quite cool this offseason. Even with Christmas and New Year’s behind us, there has been little movement outside of a few marquee moves. Many of the top free agents remain available, most notably outfielder J.D. Martinez. Agent Scott Boras had high […]

Posted on December 28, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Miami Marlins have undoubtedly been the biggest headline makers of the baseball offseason thus far. Of course, they are doing so for all the wrong reasons. Miami is slashing payroll and it seems like every player must go. Thus far, Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon, and Marcell […]

Posted on November 19, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Much of the baseball offseason thus far has revolved around the Marlins possibly trading Giancarlo Stanton. There has also been a good amount of focus on J.D. Martinez. However, one of the other free agents who figures to land a lucrative contract is Cleveland Indians first baseman […]
