  • KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Admit it: Most of the time when you look at a bobblehead, you are slightly amused by the resemblance -- or lack thereof -- to the player or coach being depicted. And after that, you typically don't give it another thought. Well, the Royals' 2015 bobblehead editions are bound to hold your attention just a tad longer. Specifically, the bobbleheads of thir... read more...

  • When the off-season began, we were all resigned to the fact that James Shields would be pitching in 2015 with a new team. It was a foregone conclusion that some team would give him four or five years at $20+ million per year and we'd be left remembering the 455 regular season innings he gave the Royals in two years with a 3.18 ERA. We'd remember the leadership he provided ... read more...

  • While the two right-handers will no longer suit up for the Sox, they will remain a major part of Red Sox history that was the starting piece in bringing a World Series title to Boston just a year after finishing in last place.... read more...

  • We’re just a few days away from the beginning of February, and James Shields is still a free agent. Shields is far and away the best free agent left on the market, and while we’ve seen pitchers dangle in the wind this deep into the offseason before (Matt Garza, Ubaldo Jimenez, Kyle Lohse, Ervin Santana to name four), they all had more red flags than Shields. Yet, Shields ... read more...

  • Last season, the Kansas City Royals shocked everyone by making it to the World Series. The last few seasons, James Shields has been a model of consistency. This past season, he went 14-8 and finished with a 3.24 ERA with 180 strikeouts, but should the Royals re-sign him? In terms of big-name pitchers, this off-season has seen some mega-contracts. Jon Lester signed with the... read more...

  • So how bad is the Tigers’ farm system? Pretty damn bad if you ask Keith Law…. In his latest set of rankings for Major League farm systems, Law not only had the Tigers outside the top 15, he had them dead last in all of baseball. My ranking of all 30 MLB farm systems is now up for Insiders: http://t.co/8uOppDP6R1 — keithlaw (@keithlaw) January 28, 2015 Here’s what he ha... read more...

  • Doesn’t it feel like Ian Kinsler’s older than 32? A consistently productive player who’s arguably had just one down season in his nine-year career — 2010, and it wasn’t that down —  I just keep waiting for that fall-off-the-cliff year. Honestly, I don’t really know why I keep waiting for it. All he does each season is top 700 PA, score 100 runs, tally at least 70 RBI, and... read more...

  • The results are in for the 2015 class eligible for baseball's Hall of Fame and former Red Sox pitching great Pedro Martinez is heading to Cooperstown. Martinez, Randy Johnson, and John Smoltz -- all in their first year of eligibility -- were voted in along with former Astros second baseman and holdover candidate Craig Biggio.... read more...

  • The Detroit Tigers are “the worst.” So says ESPN’s Keith Law. Tigers’ fans by and large are not fans of Keith Law and the Tigers organization and Keith Law are not fans of each other so the ranking of the team’s farm system at dead last should come as a surprise to no one–though it should […] ... read more...

  • Former Tampa Bay Rays utility player Ben Zobrist paid an emotional farewell to Rays fans with this full-page ad in Sunday’s Tampa Bay Times. Zobrist was traded to the Oakland Athletics (along with teammate Yunel Escobar, already traded to the Washington Nationals) earlier this offseason. Ben Zobrist and his wife, Julianna, took out an ad in today's Tampa Bay Times. pic.tw... read more...
