  1. Podcast: Robin Ventura talks CWS

    Rob Neyer

    I'd argue that whenever SweetSpot blogger/editor David Schoenfield co-hosts the Baseball Today Podcast that's all the reason you need to listen, but Thursday's show was indeed a particularly special one, because ... 1. Former All-Star third basem...

  2. Joe Maddon's bullpen mix-up

    Rob Neyer

    Monday night in the sixth inning, Joe Maddon got the wrong pitcher. He wanted Randy Choate to face Curtis Granderson, and instead he got Grant Balfour. And of course Granderson hit a three-run homer. It's still not clear exactly how this happened, bu...

  3. Scherzer makes deal look even better

    Rob Neyer

    Gleeman on a deal that's worked out quite nicely for the Tigers (if not well enough, this season): When the Tigers demoted Max Scherzer to Triple-A in mid-May he was 1-4 with an ugly 7.29 ERA, but since returning following a two-week stint in Toled...

  4. How young will Yankees go?

    Rob Neyer

    More from the mailbag: In your post about Matsui, I don't follow your reasoning about the Yankees "get-younger impulse." I'd see it if what they had done was sign Curtis Granderson as a free agent to replace Johnny Damon. In reality they had a chea...

  5. If Godzilla's benched in an empty forest ...

    Rob Neyer

    Just another thing that's gone wrong for the Angels this season. Bill Plunkett: Angels manager Mike Scioscia's defense of Hideki Matsui has been far more consistent this season than Matsui's production. With Matsui in the depths of yet another slum...

  6. Granderson's back ... but to play every day?

    Rob Neyer

    Curtis Granderson's in, and Randy Winn's out. Or off, actually. The Yankees are essentially releasing Winn. As Steven Goldman writes, Granderson is hardly the first, or the best; the Yankees once released Jimmy Wynn, and they once released Tommy J...

  7. Early returns on last winter's mega-trade

    Rob Neyer

    We never like to rush to judgment here, but on the other hand if there's a chance to make the Evil Empire look bad ... It's still very early in the season, but so far, the Detroit Tigers have to be feeling O.K. about the Curtis Granderson trade....

  8. Granderson willing to move (but probably won't)

    Rob Neyer

    GrandersonFormer Detroit Tiger Curtis Granderson would accept a shift to leftfield from the New York Yankees. Curtis Granderson just continues to burnish his Good Guy credentials. From the Freep: An All-Star centerfielder with Detroit, Granderson...

  9. Trading Curtis Granderson

    Rob Neyer

    Detroit4Lyfe's Bob Biscigliano considers the prospect of the Tigers trading Curtis Granderson, then discards it: All in all, there's only one grand reason why trading Granderson would make sense for the Tigers: MONEY. He's making a lot of money ...

  10. Making sense of Granderson's slump

    Rob Neyer

    Remembering when we were debating who was the greatest center fielder in the game, Grady Sizemore or Curtis Granderson. Now that seems like a long time ago. Sizemore's out for the season, with a variety of surgeries in his future. And Granderson ...

  11. Granderson's power surge

    Rob Neyer

    As Dave Cameron notes, Curtis Granderson has now hit as many home runs (16) as Prince Fielder and Justin Morneau, and Granderson's now just seven homers off his career high. Is Granderson stronger this season? Maybe not. A lucky fluke? Maybe not ...
