    Rob Neyer

    New York Yankees (29-23) For all the dithering and complaining that's been going on in the Bronx, the Yankees have the second-best record in the American League, propelled by the best offense in baseball. Russell Martin (.253/.363/.479) has been ...

  8. Giants find easiest way to win: Play better

    Rob Neyer

    Did Bruce Bochy out-manage Ron Washington in Game 1? Not really. Cliff Lee gave up seven runs, and there wasn't any obvious point at which Washington should have removed Lee before most of the damage was done. With any other pitcher, maybe? But Le...

  9. Rangers had 'em all the way

    Rob Neyer

  13. Rangers' Cliff Lee never really went away

    Rob Neyer

    The Texas Rangers' 5-1 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of the ALDS suggests one thing you might not have known (or might have forgotten), and one thing Joe Maddon and his bosses might not have known. What you might not have known is t...

  14. M's still facing questions about prospect

    Rob Neyer

    Mariners prospect Josh Lueke has some crazy strikeout numbers in the minors. He's also got some crazy baggage, and a lot of people are still trying to figure out what the Mariners knew before they traded for him, and when they knew it. Geoff Baker (w...

  15. Does revenue-sharing 'work'?

    Rob Neyer
