Baseball Insider: December 13, 2009 - December 19, 2009

Why the Yankees are sitting this dance out

I've written the figure "$423.5 million" so frequently in the past year or so, I would probably make it a save-string, except that it's quicker for me to just type it out than to try to remember how to do a save-string. In any case, that figure, as you probably...

Here come the Orioles!

Boom, boom and (maybe) BOOM! In the past 16 hours or so, the Baltimore Orioles have reached preliminary agreement with closer Mike Gonzalez and corner infielder Garrett Atkins (both pending physicals), and have reportedly "jumped into" the bidding for left fielder Matt Holliday. Do the Orioles have a legitimate shot...

Is the DH rule in play for Selig's committee?

Commissioner Bud Selig's newly formed "Special Committee for On-Field Matters," which was announced Tuesday, is charged with finding new solutions to a lot of old problems -- the use of instant replay, the quality of umpiring, the tedious pace of play, the too-frequent off-days during the postseason, etc. Much of...

Are the Phillies building a dynasty?

In the print edition story Tuesday morning, I asked the rhetorical question: Why would the Philadelphia Phillies essentially swap an ace (Cliff Lee) who accomplished so much for them in 2009 for one (Roy Halladay) who, despite his towering record, is something of an unknown in the National League (as...

Lackey about to sign with Red Sox?

It didn't take long for the Boston Red Sox to respond to the apparent ultimatum from Jason Bay's agent. If Bay was indeed "moving on," then so were the Red Sox. According to AOL Fanhouse's Ed Price (via Twitter) and Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, John Lackey, the top free agent...

Who's going to give J. Bay a fifth year?

When Jason Bay's agent says his client is prepared to "move on" from the Boston Red Sox, it is only natural to read that and assume Bay is ruling out a return to the Red Sox. But I read it and assume just the opposite: Bay must really want to...
