    Starlin Castro

    The Cubs picked up shortstop prospect Addison Russell, adding to their bank of highly touted shortstops (Javier Baez and Starlin Castro). There is already talk (of course, there is always talk) that...

    Jeff Kent's mustache.

    Jeff Kent's attitude.

    Jeff Kent's initials.

    Jeff Kent's career and stats? Let's give it a go.

    Come on Kanzler, nobody thinks you can do it. Not even your mom.

    At the beginning of the year, I said I would take the under at 72.5 wins. I'll stick with that at the top end (72-90) and keep pulling for them the rest of the way to hit the over and then some.

    I heard the plays described in the OP, too. It was pretty awful, but no where near the worst play-by-play call I have heard from Gladden (who I don't mind as a color guy). The worst came (I think)...

    I think the summary of this post is that no one should write words. From now on when you write, don't use words.

    Yes, we only have one outfielder. Yes, we have 4 shortstops. Yes, we have 3 catchers. Yes, we're carrying 13 pitchers.

    But we kept our word when we told Kubel and Bartlett and Guerrier that we...

    Not to be Pollyanna here, but technically, they are only a game or so out of the first wildcard spot, so although it is still early, they ARE competing for a playoff spot. That said, I agree that it...

    I am very excited by this. Although there is a good argument to be made that SS needed to be addressed in the offseason, the fact that they are moving on after a month of really, really poor...

    Is that the same batter and at-bat the whole time? If so, what exactly happened between the second-to-last pitch and last pitch that caused center fielder Kanzler to so drastically shift his...

    This seems like a very playtime imagination scenario. I do not see a scenario where Brian Dozier would be traded this season.

    Post All-Star Break 1993 through 2000 was a pretty dark time to be a Twins fan. Particularly the 1994-1995 strike (in general, this greatly changed how I viewed sports), Puckett getting hit in the...

    Presley is a 4th outfielder. If they want him on the roster as a pinch runner and defensive substitute for Willingham/Arcia in the 8th inning, great, keep him for that reason. Give him one start a...

    Agreed. I was hoping he would make the team, partly because when we traded Revere I thought Worley was a nice "right now" piece. Not that I expected him to be an All-Star, but I thought he would...

    I don't think it's a matter of being crazy. There are certainly reasons that each of them could have more time in AAA. But what is really blocking them? For example, how is age 32 and slipping badly...

    Very similar to what I would have predicted. In spite of all the speculation that playing first will have a tremendous impact on his power numbers, I think the uptick will be marginal. Other than the...

    Give me the over, too. At least long enough that I will invest in whoever makes the icepacks and heating pads that are applied to Plouffe's neck from all that looking over his shoulder.

    I'll go with the kid that has the best walk-up music. And that, my friends, is Mr. Oswaldo Arcia. (2013 HRs = 24 in 479 ABs between Rochester and the big club...as a 22 year old!)

    I love prospect lists because I get to see what people who pay attention to this stuff (many as an occupation) think of players I probably have never seen play or even heard of. Generally, if many of...
