  1. Harper Being Harper, and More Snap Judgments From Opening Day(s)

    Michael Baumann

    The 2014 MLB season is only a day and change old. To borrow a phrase from James Earl Jones's greatest career role as Admiral James Greer: "The data support no conclusions as yet." Still, some teams have played some games, which means ...

  2. The Year in Prodigies

    Andrew Sharp

    Somewhere in my parents' house, there is a giant box of magazines that's a gold mine of late-’90s, early-’00s sports. Maybe they've been thrown out by now, but the box weighs enough so there's a good chance those 250 or 300 old magazines ...

  3. MLB Awards Week Isn't Over Until We Say It's Over, So Here Are Fi...

    Michael Baumann

  4. Forget Cabrera vs. Trout: Put This Bit of Crazy in Your Bottomles...

    Michael Baumann

    If baseball's MVP voters allowed objective criteria to guide them, we wouldn't have much of a debate about which two players deserve to win the award. But without debate, why bother caring about sports? Often, the empirics are so overwhelmingly in fa...

  6. The MLB Weekend Top 10: Into the Wild-Card Wilderness

    Shane Ryan

    It's the last weekend of the regular season, which means it's also the last MLB Weekend Top 10. That would be sad, in its way, if I weren't just drowning in Coca-Cola right now. I don't have any emotions except alert, and so I can't write a proper eu...

    Rany Jazayerli

    Even if the Angels outfielder doesn't win the MVP this season, no other hitter has been this great at such a young age.

  10. Mike Trout's Ridiculous Encore Performance

    Jonah Keri

    Last year, Mike Trout was the best player in baseball (even if voters and players disagreed). His was one of the best rookie seasons of all time, ranking with Dwight Gooden's off-the-charts '85 campaign as one of the best efforts ever for a player in...

  12. Mark Teixeiras Trade Deadline Butterfly Effect

    Michael Baumann

    For those of you who weren't already aware, Mark Teixeira was traded twice a few years back, and as it turns out, those trades completely upset the course of baseball events, on a scale that alternate-history novels are written. It's not an exaggerat...

  13. Forget PEDs, Baseball Is Fun As Hell Right Now

    Jonah Keri

    You won't find many gloomier weeks of headlines for any sport than what baseball's getting right now. Ryan Braun has been compared to a cockroach. Alex Rodriguez is "the Whitey Bulger of baseball." We're drowning in PED rumors, PED news, and especial...

    Chris Ryan

    Last night, some MLB dudes did some yard work (total insider baseball term there) at the 2013 Home Run Derby. Yoenis Cespedes of the Oakland A's bested Bryce Harper in the final round, which means Harper has to serve as the Cuban slugger's personal b...

  15. The Six Skill Competitions That Could Fix MLB All-Star Week

    Michael Baumann

    Baseball might be the only one of the four major sports in which the All-Star Game is more entertaining than its baggage. The Pro Bowl is awful, a chore so eye-roll worthy that players routinely look for reasons to beg out of a free postseason trip t...
