Baseball Insider: October 25, 2009 - October 31, 2009

Off-day notes [UPDATE: Blanton in Game 4]

Greetings from the press box at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where we will have many plagues to look forward to this weekend -- rain on Saturday night, a transit strike on Sunday night and -- something, perhaps locusts or more bad umpiring, on Monday night. Both the Phillies and...

Return of the Big Mac

With the hiring of Mark McGwire as St. Louis' new hitting coach, MLB is, for the first time, truly opening its arms to its steroid-infused past

The Yankees' World Series rotation problem

So many reasons why this World Series is going to be fascinating: *A matchup of ace lefties, CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee, in Game 1. That's the 2007 and 2008 American League Cy Young Award winners, mind you. I'll have a story on the Web site shortly, and in the...

Biggest winner in rainout: the Phillies
