  1. Is Russ Martin the new Joe Girardi?

    Rob Neyer

    This Tweet from Ken Davidoff really gets to the heart of things, doesn't it? Yankees signed Russell Martin with his versatility in mind. Can help out at 3B, 1B, in addition to C. But Girardi values experience at C. Jorge Posada was blessed with Ha...

  2. Too many Gold Gloves, not enough MVPs?

    Rob Neyer

    A friend tweets : "It's absurd that Jeter won a Gold Glove, but no more absurd than his never having won an MVP." No, it's not. It's not nearly as absurd. Jeter's won five Gold Gloves, and hasn't deserved any of them. If you tilt everything tow...

  4. Is playing Phillies the worst thing?

    Rob Neyer

    Earlier today in a tweet, I posed this hypothetical: If Braves lose, does Bochy pull Sanchez early and use a bunch of scrub relievers? I think he has to. Looking good for Padres right now... At that moment, the Braves were losing 2-1. As I w...

  6. Room for two Pat Nesheks in Minnesota?

    Rob Neyer

    An intriguing tweet from Patrick Reusse last night: "Front office has balked at DL stint for [Pat] Neshek. One reason: Unwillingness to give manager his preferred pitcher -- Anthony Slama." Who's Anthony Slama? Just one of the champion strike-thro...

    Rob Neyer

    This news wasn't as good as I'd hoped, upon clicking on a link in a tweet. Via ESPN Los Angeles' Jon Weisman, Joe Torre's Saturday morning quotes: "Physically guys are ready, mentally it's tough to remind yourself these games are important. We stil...

  12. Don't look to Hall voters for consistency

    Rob Neyer

    Sunday night, Jon Heyman revealed his Hall of Fame ballot in a tweet. Just six months ago, this would have been unthinkable. Today it doesn't even qualify as news. No, what was interesting was Heyman's willingness, again via Twitter, to defend his ba...

    Caught this tweet last night from Jon Heyman: at marlins game as fan. just for hanley (3 for 3 so far, .365), worth admission price. Hey, whatever it lacks in poetry it makes up for in clarity. I knew, in a sort of off-handed way, that Hanley Rami...

  15. More on Tex vs. the World

    Rob Neyer

    It was an interesting weekend, blog-wise. Usually -- as you've probably noticed -- not much happens here on the weekend. But, late Friday night, Tyler Kepner shot off a Tweet that shocked me, just a little bit. So I wrote something about it, an...

  16. Has Tex locked up MVP already?

    Rob Neyer

    Is this Tweet from Tyler Kepner for real? By the way, this is probably obvious by now, but Mark Teixeira's the AL MVP. No question, as Joe Torre would say. No question? Honestly? Maybe Kepner just means that Teixeira will win, rather than tha...
