  2. Reds' Leake, Frazier have big parts to play

    Christina Kahrl

    When you look at the Reds and Pirates, it's easy to get caught up in the big stars: Andrew McCutchen and Joey Votto, both National League MVPs, both leading candidates for the face of the game, both of them engines to power the possible in two NL Cen...

  7. Early trends: Bruce, Fielder, Rizzo, Heyward

    Mark Simon

    We've reached the point in the season where the first calls are coming into sports-talk radio. You know the kind. The ones that say "Bench (fill in the blank), he's terrible" or "(fill in the blank) is finally going to be a star." But there are us...

    Christina Kahrl

    After pounding his 496th home run, you could feel a little bit of joy for Albert Pujols. Big money or no, the Los Angeles Angels slugger had taken quite a tumble from his days as the game's best ballplayer. He's apparently healed up completely from l...

    David Schoenfield

  12. Time for the Braves to cut Dan Uggla

    David Schoenfield

    I've always liked Dan Uggla, a guy who has fought for respect his entire career. An 11th-round pick in 2001 out of the University of Memphis, the Arizona Diamondbacks never really considered him much of a prospect. He spent parts of three seasons at ...

  13. Padres smartly sign Gyorko to extension

    David Schoenfield

    Jedd Gyorko is off to a slow start for the San Diego Padres, but he's one of my favorite young infielders in the game, a power-hitting second baseman who has a chance to turn into an All-Star-caliber player. In what is no longer a trend but almost a ...
