  1. Cubs may start to answer questions

    Jesse Rogers

    PITTSBURGH -- Amidst the tiring back-and-forth of the Wrigley Field renovation project (including a silly dalliance with the city of Rosemont), a greater interest in their minor leaguers and the promise of the upcoming No. 2 overall pick in the draft...

    Doug Padilla

  4. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Texas Rangers

    Jonah Keri

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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...

  7. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Seattle Mariners

    Jonah Keri

    Writing up the Mariners now might seem a little unfair, given they've already played two regular-season games. But check out these two box scores — do they tell us anything we couldn't have guessed about this team beforehand? Dustin Ackley h...

    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...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Arizona Diamondbacks

    Jonah Keri

    The Diamondbacks finished dead last in 2009 and 2010. Then they hired Kevin Towers as new GM and Kirk Gibson as new manager. Presto, D-Backs win the West. Well, not quite. Going by runs scored and runs allowed, the 2010 club would have been expect...

  12. 2012 MLB Season Preview: San Francisco Giants

    Jonah Keri

    Brian Sabean and Bruce Bochy have teamed up to assassinate the Giants' offense. The league's second-best pitching staff might be golfing in October as a result. The $126 million contract Sabean (and his bosses) gave Barry Zito five-plus years ago ...

  13. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Washington Nationals

    Jonah Keri

    Stephen Strasburg is coming back. Bryce Harper is coming soon. The Phillies might be waning. No wonder the Nationals were one of baseball's most aggressive teams this offseason, raiding the farm system for Gio Gonzalez and signing Edwin Jackson to a ...

  14. 2012 MLB Season Preview: Miami Marlins

    Jonah Keri

    Armed with a shiny, taxpayer-funded new stadium green-lit by feckless government officials, the Marlins decided they'd finally spend some money this offseason. The plan went as follows: Get Albert Pujols, get Jose Reyes, get one of the best starting ...

  16. 2012 MLB Season Preview: New York Mets

    Jonah Keri

    Should the Mets trade David Wright? It's sad to come into a season with the possible trade of your franchise players as the biggest question mark. But the Mets own the dreaded double curse: They're bad now, and they're likely to remain bad for the...
