    Michael Baumann

    The Houston Astros are known nowadays for chasing the unorthodox. Their raid on the brain trust of Baseball Prospectus, their tandem starters in the minor leagues, their complete disinterest in competing at the major league level until they've develo...

  5. The MLB Over/Unders I'm Not Touching

    Jonah Keri

    Wednesday was a special day here at Casa Keri. Upon reading the big news, I stripped down to my custom-made Youppi Underoos, poured a case of Great Divide's finest over my head, and ran headlong into walls on four non-consecutive occasions. That's ri...

  10. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Texas Rangers

    Jonah Keri

    After five decades of existence in D.C. and in Texas without winning a single pennant, the Rangers have stormed to the World Series in each of the past two seasons. More impressively, this is a team with success that's built to last. Through shrewd d...

  11. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Los Angeles Angels

    Jonah Keri

    Let's get a few things out of the way first. There's a good chance Albert Pujols doesn't earn out the $240 million the Angels will pay him over the next 10 years, at least not directly. Also, one player rarely turns a merely decent team into a title ...

  12. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Oakland A's

    Jonah Keri

    They might not win much, might not score many runs, might not get much national attention. But the Oakland A's are going to be interesting this year. For that, they can thank Yoenis Cespedes. Stick your small sample sizes in your ear: In the seven...

    One of the top 15 players in the game in Troy Tulowitzki. A young star entering his age-27 season in Carlos Gonzalez. A potential future ace in Jhoulys Chacin. Plus ... Jamie Freaking Moyer! The offseason relocation of Grantland's baseball headqua...

  15. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers

    Jonah Keri

    So that happened. Frank McCourt's $2 billion sale of the Dodgers to a consortium led by Mark Walter, Stan Kasten, and Magic Johnson should eventually prompt a big spending spike for a team that fell to middle-of-the-pack status in major league pay...

  16. 2012 MLB Season Preview: San Diego Padres

    Jonah Keri

    In 2011, no team underperformed its expected record by a wider margin than San Diego. The Padres scored just 18 runs fewer than they allowed, netting an expected record of 79-83; they went 71-91 instead. With a young nucleus led by Mat Latos, Cameron...
