    Christina Kahrl

  2. Leyland uses every bullet, not just best

    Christina Kahrl

  4. Porcello, Boesch put Tigers back on top

    Christina Kahrl

  6. Position production: At the corners

    Christina Kahrl

    Are first basemen doing more to put runs on the board today than they did 10 years ago? How about 25 years ago? How do you make broad comparisons like this? With any question like this you can get hung up on the differences between eras. Run-scori...

  7. The Cubs-Pads double-dare deal

    Christina Kahrl

    Say good-bye to all those Prince Fielder rumors. The Cubs kept denying they were playing at that table, and by trading for Anthony Rizzo, they made it clear they were serious. When you talk about "challenge trades" you're usually referring to a st...

  9. NL Central: Three fixes for each team

    Christina Kahrl

    Christina Kahrl

    MILWAUKEE -- Tony Plush's tweet war! K-Rod crabs about role! Prince says this is probably final year in Milwaukee! National League Central lead shrinks by five games in eight days! With headlines like these, you'd think everyone's hair was on fire. I...

    Christina Kahrl

    PHOENIX -- Expectations were high for Monday night's Home Run Derby, in one of the best home run ballparks in the majors. And there was a good chance to see a decent chunk of change go to charity, thanks to State Farm's promise to donate $18,000 per ...

  13. Who are the real 'RBI guys?'

    Christina Kahrl

    In the age of new metrics for player performance, the RBI is mired in tough times. The snarkier analysts will chuck it out entirely as an unfortunate statistical footnote. It isn't something you'd go to WAR for, after all, not when the analysis commu...

  14. Ryan Braun's deal and the Prince-ly sum

    Christina Kahrl
