If you thought that the 2013 season wasn't jam-packed with strange but true feats on and off the diamond, Jayson Stark's here to disabuse you of that notion.
Jayson Stark picks the winners and losers of the offseason to date, considering the winter meetings couldn't match the activity from the previous week.
It was one of the strangest, quietest trade deadline days of all time, but there were some significant moves made in July.
Tiebreakers and weather could turn the first week of Bud Selig's new October into a logistical nightmare.
The Phillies, Dodgers, Rangers, Giants and Cubs are teams that could be big players leading up to the trade deadline.
What's new? From Albert Pujols in L.A. to the playoffs to Marlins Park in Miami, the 2012 season has a much different look.
The Rangers got exactly what they wanted and needed at the trade deadline, heading the list of winners. The Yankees did nothing, and for that they lead the list of losers.
Free-agent pitcher Brandon Webb has agreed to a one-year contract with the Texas Rangers, pending a physical, an official of a club that had interest in Webb told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark.
Amazingly, another half-season is already in the books, so let's hand out the major awards as we hit the All-Star break.
It's safe to say that the first half of the season was filled with crazy injuries, nutty box-score lines and a fair share of no-hitters.
Relief pitchers, even the great ones, are rarely given serious consideration for Cy Young or MVP. The time has come to establish a new major award.
It's time to bid farewell to another season that was filled with highs, lows and so much in between. With that said, here come the awards.
A swarm of bees at Petco Park. A flock of sea gulls at Progressive Field. A Nat with almost as many homers as his team has wins. Yeah, it's been one bizarre first half, for sure.
From Cy Youngs and Cy Yuks to MVPs and LVPs to some of the stranger moments on the diamond, we look back at the first half of the 2009 season.
From Most Valuable Players to Cy Youngs to Cy Yuks, it's time for Jayson Stark to start doling out his annual midseason awards.
Due to a weak free-agent class, many trades could be made at the winter meetings.
