  10. Does Nathan signing hurt Neftali's value?

    Eric Karabell

    I love what the Texas Rangers did in signing Joe Nathan to be their closer, thus moving Neftali Feliz to the rotation (though a year too late!). This bold move makes the team better as it seeks a third consecutive trip to the World Series, and there ...

  15. Podcast: Phillies still top power rankings

    Eric Karabell

    Here are the top five reasons why Monday's Baseball Today podcast with Keith Law and me is a must-listen: 1. Posada-gate is hopefully over, but who was right, who was wrong and why will it be so much worse when one of Jorge's teammates keeps decl...
