A year ago, some team might have made an offer that rocked Alex Young's world. The Pirates, Nationals or Red Sox, maybe even the Cubs, might have dug deep for the left-hander from Carmel High School. They still could, of course, but 2012 is definitely...
Lots of people out there are just waiting to see Theo Epstein fail. They think he gets too much attention, that his deal with Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts is too sweet. They think he should have received more criticism for a run of failed free-agent...
In the end, the umpires got the call right. But it sure took long enough. And a rough five-game homestand for the Orioles got even rougher in the sixth inning Sunday when Tampa Bay's Matt Joyce hit a soaring fly ball down the right field line in the...
Like his bosses, Mike Foltynewicz is a baseball optimist. He can see the Astros rising out of the ashes they find themselves in at the beginning of the Jim Crane era. "In three or four years, we're going to be a fun team,'' said Foltynewicz, a 21-year-...

Will the third time be the charm for the World Baseball Classic? Not if the underwhelming U.S. roster is any indication. While many of Commissioner Bud Selig's innovations have enjoyed immediate success — especially expanded playoffs and...
While the stadium issues in Oakland and Tampa Bay are viewed as the most critical in baseball, Commissioner Bud Selig quietly is trying to help the Cubs secure funding for a public-private partnership that would allow Wrigley Field to be updated along the...
Bad calls didn't put the Yankees in 2-0 hole; the pitching of all Tigers not named Jose Valverde did. Nor did that bad infield fly rule call send the Braves home after one game; three infield errors did. Yet you won't be able to tell the story of the...
