MLB News and Rumors

A bunch of stray, interesting, important stuff to get to from around baseball …

  • Callaway is not going to be fired today, and it is crazy that the reporters had to actually report that news – again:

  • A fan ran onto the field yesterday to hug Cody Bellinger, and despite it looking all good and funny and whatever, this is bad and people should not do it, because eventually it encourages people are aren’t so nice:

  • It gives me great pain to admit that this is an incredible play:

  • Are we back to an era of “just get to the bullpen”? Maybe so:

  • Manny Machado and the way things ended with the Orioles:

  • The $8 million the Nationals gave to Trevor Rosenthal as one of the first signings of the offseason did not work out so well, as he has been released:
