Help me, I’m stuck in some sort of fantasy/nightmare daze. For the entirety of the day I’ve existed in some sort post-deadline cloud. Since the events of this morning I’ve been trying torise from the ashes of perhaps the most monumental trade of this generation of Oakland...

With the pandemonium of the non-waiver trade deadline in the rear-view mirror, we can finally get back to baseball. Whether you are enragedthat Giants’ GM Brian Sabean stood pat or thankful that he didn’t mortgage the future, both sides can agree that it’s time to refocus on the...

To put the 2014 July 31st trade market into perspective, you could note any of a number of things. You could look at the fact that the Milwaukee Brewers got two minor league players for Gerardo Parra or the fact that the San Diego Padres got two pieces for Chris Denorfia and safely conclude what...

The Los Angeles Angels bullpen is no longer a weakness. Six Halo relievers combined to shut out Baltimore through 8 1/3 innings Thursday night en route to a hard-fought 1-0 victory.

Yordano Ventura certainly lived up to his nickname of ‘Ace’ for the Royals tonight, stifling the Minnesota Twins offense in Kansas City’s 6-3 victory. The game did not start off well for Ventura. Danny Santana, who has been a thorn in the Royals side all series, hit a hanging...
