Market Watch: Outfield

Details By Andrew Simon

Published: Nov 16, 2014, 8:22 pm EST

Teams looking for bats this offseason will be turning their attention to the outfield, which has a plethora of options, at least at the corners. When it comes to finding an everyday center fielder on the free-agent market, it's pretty much Colby Rasmus or bust.

This Is Why The Wild Card Exists

Details By Will Leitch

Published: Aug 8, 2014, 10:38 am EDT

Congratulations to the Tigers, A's, Angels and Orioles, who seem like excellent bets to get to October. But there's still the matter of the second American League wild card to attend to, and four teams -- the Yankees, Royals, Mariners and Blue Jays -- will fight to the end for it.

The Blue Jays Fall To Earth

Details By Jonathan Bernhardt

Published: Jun 22, 2014, 12:36 am EDT

The Blue Jays are a good enough team to take a series from the Twins or Cardinals, not get swept by the Yankees, and so on -- but they are not the sort of team from whom .600 baseball should be expected, and a small advantage in the East is what they merit.

Raw Power

Details By Marc Normandin

Published: Jun 5, 2014, 12:39 am EDT

In an age of decreasing offense, every run is more valuable, so to realize that three different sluggers -- Edwin Encarnacion, Nelson Cruz and Jose Abreu -- are on pace to hit 50 is impressive. They won't all get there, most likely, but we can still investigate what they're doing so right.

Old Faithful

Details By Dirk Hayhurst

Published: Jun 5, 2014, 12:00 am EDT

Major League Baseball has always coveted high velocity. But with pitchers seemingly reaching their physical limits, would it not be wise for baseball to shift it's focus off velocity? Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle's pitching style could provide us with an alternative.

Two Roads Diverged

Details By Jonathan Bernhardt

Published: May 30, 2014, 12:23 am EDT

The greatest juxtaposition of the 2014 regular baseball season so far kicked off last night in Toronto, when the Royals arrived to begin a four-game series with the Blue Jays. No two teams seem to be headed in completely opposite directions this year quite like them.

The Psychology Of Hot Streaks

Details By Dirk Hayhurst

Published: May 25, 2014, 12:53 am EDT

What to say to a streaking baseball player, a guy like Edwin Encarnacion who has turned it on in the month of May? I just smack him on the butt and say, "Great job," because players are process-focused.

Butterfly Effect

Details By Howard Megdal

Published: May 8, 2014, 12:25 am EDT

The pitch that brought R.A. Dickey to prominence, the knuckleball, is inherently unpredictable -- and so are the careers of the pitchers who throw it. That's why it's hard to know what to expect from Dickey, this year or going forward.

In The Line Of Fire

Details By Shaun Powell

Published: Mar 24, 2014, 1:15 am EDT

The line drive that injured Aroldis Chapman reminded us yet again of just how dangerous it can be for a pitcher to be unprotected against batted baseballs. From Herb Score in 1957 to Chapman, Brandon McCarthy, J.A. Happ and others recently, pitchers continue to get hurt.

Haunted By The Past

Details By Jorge Arangure Jr.

Published: Mar 23, 2014, 12:56 am EDT

Ricky Romero of the Blue Jays was once one of the American League's rising young pitchers, but a pair of nightmare seasons have left him scrambling for answers. The more people ask him what went wrong, the more difficult it is to forget just how far he's fallen.
