    Joe Kaiser

    As the Boston Red Sox and fantasy owners know all too well, inconsistency has plagued Clay Buchholz over the course of his big league career. But the 30-year-old righty has pitched better of late. Has he turned the corner? He'll have to prove it o...

  2. Morning Notes: TanakaPalooza

    Andrew Marchand

    TAMPA, Fla. -- It will be 3 a.m. Sunday in Japan when the Phillies-Yankees exhibition begins today, but that won't stop two Japanese TV stations from broadcasting the Yankees' spring training game. The fuss, of course, is for 25-year-old, $155 mi...

  4. Soriano hopes to remain a Cub but open to change

    Bruce Levine

    CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano says he would like to finish out the last two years of his contract with the team. The 37-year-old power hitter is, of course, realistic about his role on a team that is building a young base of...

  5. Of course, they are old

    Andrew Marchand

    With the Yankees just waiting on Kevin Youkilis' physical and Ichiro Suzuki about to become official, the idea is back out there that they are too old. Of course, they are. This may blow up in the Yankees' faces, but there was no real alternati...

  8. The Mariners should trade King Felix

    David Schoenfield

    Felix Hernandez made his debut for the Seattle Marines when he was 19 years old. It's easy to fall in love with the kids, of course, especially ones who throw fastballs from heaven and curveballs that opposing hitters would suggest were from hell. ...

  9. 2012 All-Star Game: Running diary

    David Schoenfield

    It's easy to be cynical about the All-Star Game. Of course it is. As a 10-year-old kid in 1979, I sat in the left-field bleachers at the Kingdome in Seattle for the All-Star Game. I still vividly recall the details from that game -- most memorably...

  10. Madison Bumgarner has Cy Young potential

    David Schoenfield

    Thirty years ago, many baseball executives would have looked at Madison Bumgarner's 3.21 ERA and 13-13 record and said he doesn't know how to win. We know better now, of course, which is why the San Francisco Giants signed the 22-year-old left-han...

    Eric Karabell

    There's a memorable scene near the end of the Eddie Murphy/Dan Aykroyd movie "Trading Places" when the old guys lose all their money on the stock exchange, and Mortimer Duke screams in agony, "Turn those machines back on!" His goal, of course, i...

  14. How Prince Fielder ended up in Detroit

    Jim Bowden

    While Cecil Fielder launched home runs for the Detroit Tigers from 1990-96, legend has it his 12-year-old son, Prince, hit a home run into the upper deck of cavernous Tiger Stadium. Of course, legends are embellished, and Prince's shot merely wen...

  15. Joe, the Boss would like to see you

    Wallace Matthews

    That means the New Boss, of course, which has to be less stressful than a pre-game visit from the Old Boss, the late George Steinbrenner. Just before Joe Girardi met with Yankee beat writers before the game, Hal Steinbrenner, accompanied by brother-i...

  16. Walks keep some hitters fantasy-relevant

    Eric Karabell
