  1. Will Bagwell get lost in Cooperstown crowd?

    Rob Neyer

    The Hall of Fame ballot is out there and in the hands of longtime BBWAA members (which leaves me out). In my mind there's just one big question but more on that in a moment. First the source material: Suspected steroid users Rafael Palmeiro and ...

  2. Is Javier Vazquez' fastball gone for good?

    Rob Neyer

    From a recent edition of Hey Bill (subscriber-only): Bill, As a Marlin fan I like the new acquistion of Javier Vazquez. My question to you is Vazquez lost a few MPH last year off his pitches. Barring an unknown injury that caused the MPH drop off i...

  3. Victor Martinez's price too high for Red Sox

    Rob Neyer

    To this point, it's not been a great offseason for the Red Sox, who lost one of their best players when Victor Martinez signed with the Tigers. Here's Alex Speier on the (non-)move, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia's apparent ascendance: So, why did the S...

  4. Johnson almost lost in Cy Young shuffle

    Rob Neyer

    The National League Cy Young balloting has seemed like a foregone conclusion for some time. Which, in the event, it was. In the SweetSpot Network balloting, Roy Halladay was the unanimous choice: 19 ballots, 19 first-place votes for Halladay. More...

  5. Should Girardi have used Mo in Game 3?

    Rob Neyer

    Lost in Cliff Lee's continuing wizardry was the Yankee bullpen's ninth-inning meltdown, which turned a 2-0 nailbiter into an 8-0 blowout. And as It's About the Money notes, it didn't have to end that way: Rather than bring Mariano Rivera in to face...

  6. Monday Mendozas

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links all have been implanted with microchips. So if one of 'em gets lost, we'll find it ... I don't have any idea if Bobby Valentine will finally manage the Marlins, or some other club. I hope so, though. Baseball's more fun when Valent...

  7. Gardenhire powerless against Yankees

    Rob Neyer

    There is a parallel dimension -- actually, an infinite number of parallel dimensions -- in which the Minnesota Twins scored four or five runs Saturday night against the New York Yankees. In this dimension, the Twins still lost the game, because the Y...

  8. Braves helpless against Giants' strikeout machine

    Rob Neyer

    It's sort of hard to believe that Tim Lincecum threw only one shutout during the regular season. But then, shutouts are something of a lost art. Last year Lincecum threw only two shutouts ... and tied for the National League lead (with four other ...

  9. Maybe this 'loss' is really a win

    Rob Neyer

    The Mariners lost today, 1-0. Felix Hernandez lost today, 1-0. This doesn't sit well with Aaron Gleeman: Hernandez is now 12-12 despite a league-best 2.31 ERA in a league-high 242 innings. Clearly he just doesn't "know how to win." After all, if...

  10. National League won't miss Mo

    Rob Neyer

    Joe Girardi just lost his security blanket (for one night, anyway): Due to inflammation in his right knee and a sore oblique, New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is going to skip this year's All-Star Game. Rivera said he thought he could continue...

  11. Does Derrek Lee make sense for Angels?

    Rob Neyer

    So are we supposed to believe this one? Excellent baseball sources are telling us the Angels and the Cubs may be involved in trade talks that could send Derrek Lee to L.A. The Angels lost their starting first baseman, Kendry Morales, last weekend ...

  12. When it was 'Lima Time' in Kansas City

    Rob Neyer

    Of Jose Lima's 89 career wins in the majors, only 13 came as a Kansas City Royal. But when I think of Lima, I always think of Lima Time circa 2003. In 2002, the Royals lost 100 games In 2004, the Royals lost 104 games. But for five months...

  13. Waiting for the save situation ... forever

    Rob Neyer

    From the mailbag a good question from a Mets fan (and no, not that Mets fan) ... Rob, as a fan of both the Mets and common sense, I simply can't take this any longer. The Mets lost two extra-inning games in Cincinnati this week, and K-Rod pitched i...

  14. Monday Mendozas

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are so worried about Javier Vazquez's psyche that they can hardly think of anything else ... * With his continuing lack of faith in Chris Iannetta's talents, Jim Tracy's lost some credibility with the seamheads. But he's going to ga...

  15. Will Iannetta get religion in C-Springs?

    Rob Neyer

    Boy, Chris Iannetta's 2010 tryout sure didn't last long. Off to a slow start, Iannetta's not only lost playing time to Miguel Olivo; now he's lost his roster spot. Here's Jack Moore with the gory details: This is just another exercise in the dange...

  16. Pierzynski cheats, Romero loses no-no

    Rob Neyer

    Andy Behrens on what happened just moments before Ricky Romero lost his no-hitter last night: Romero skipped a pitch in the dirt to Pierzynski leading off the eighth inning -- not a terrible pitch, mind you, because AJ had been hacking at similar of...
