"Not that I don't take any of our guys from a lesser standpoint, but if Goldy's getting hit, it's an eye for an eye, somebody's going down or somebody's going to get jackknifed." -- Diamondbacks general manager Kevin TowersAccording to T...
"Not that I don't take any of our guys from a lesser standpoint, but if Goldy's getting hit, it's an eye for an eye, somebody's going down or somebody's going to get jackknifed." -- Diamondbacks general manager Kevin TowersAccording to Towers, the Diamondbacks weren't a disappointment because their outfielders hit the fewest home runs in the majors or the rotation ranked 25th in the majors in strikeout rate or Ian Kennedy was terrible and Miguel Montero had a bad year, but because their pitches didn't hit enough opposing batters.

The Rangers announced that they have designated Jeff Baker for assignment. The infielder was taken off of the 40-man roster to make room for right-handed pitcher Matt West to be activated off of the 60-day disabled list. The move doesn't make a huge difference in the Rangers' plans as Baker is set to hit the open market this winter. Baker had a strong .279/.360/.545 slash line in a small sample size of 175 plate appearances this season. The 32-year-old, who also has experience in the outfield, has a career slash line of .267/.321/.440 over parts of nine big league seasons.... Read more Jeff Baker news

Jean Segura wasn’t the best fantasy baseball player in 2013. He might not have even been the best shortstop for fantasy teams this year. But given the context of projections with the overall production, Segura pretty much destroyed any reasonable expectation from the preseason. In fantasy baseball, value is an elusive commodity, and Segura provided […] Read more Jean Segura news

A few final reflections on the Red Sox-Rays ALDS:• The Red Sox outscored the Rays 25-12, hit .300 with runners in scoring position to Tampa Bay’s .179, and stole six bases to the Rays’ one. • Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Victorino and David Ortiz (Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in the lineup) were a combined 20 for 45 with 13 runs scored and eight RBIs in the ALDS. Each of the three hit .385 or better. • Boston took advantage of every opportunity to get on base and every opportunity to score, capitalizing on not just hits, but defensive miscues and wild pitches.

As we put a bow on the ALDS and rest up for the late nights ahead in the ALCS, here’s a look ahead at Boston’s next foe: The winner of the Tigers-Athletics Game 5 scheduled for Thursday in Oakland. First, let’s state the obvious: The fact that these teams need to play in a pivotal Game 5 can only benefit the Red Sox. While Sox pitchers are resting, hurlers for the Tigers and A’s will be pulling out all the stops. The Tigers will start Justin Verlander, which means he won’t be able to pitch against the Red Sox until a potential Game 3 in Detroit. Read more Justin Verlander news
