MLB Previews: Brewers, Twins, Mets, Yankees, A’s

The Mets are a disaster, while the Brewers might have put together their best team of the decade. The Yankees have the resources to answer whatever questions they begin the season with, while the A’s haven’t been able to fill their biggest void. The Twins keep doing what they’ve always done, but is it enough to win yet again? Continue reading

Greinke Injury

CHRIS PUMMER: Basketball isn’t a safe sport to dabble in. And if I were being paid millions of dollars to play baseball, I would probably not do anything that would compromise my ability to do that.

At the same time, Greinke’s already got all the money he and his family will ever need coming to him. Maybe gambling a possible $150-200 million payday for the sake of doing whatever the hell he wants right now is just fine with him. Continue reading

Prince Fielder’s Value

JUSTIN JARRETT: The Milwaukee Brewers are eventually going to face a tough decision regarding Prince Fielder, and their best bet would be to sign him to a multi-year extension.

Fielder will be arbitration eligible after this season, and with his power numbers showing little sign of letting up, he’s bound to command a fat (no pun intended) paycheck for 2011, if it gets to that point.

KRYSTEN OLIPHANT: It’s obvious now that the Brewers plan to keep Fielder, and I only half-way disagree with their decision. Continue reading

The Jeff Suppan Signing in Review

CHRIS PUMMER: With the Milwaukee Brewers deciding to punt Jeff Suppan to the curb, they’ve suffered a number of snarky comments calling into question the wisdom of signing the soft-tossing pitcher to a four-year contract in the first place.

I won’t try to argue that it was a great decision. But it wasn’t an awful decision. And it was certainly one where the Brewers realized an upside that’s maybe hard to see through the billowing smoke coming from the pile of cash they’ve burned on Suppan’s uselessness this year and last.

HOWARD MEGDAL: There are two critical points Chris makes that I think speak to the inherent flaw in a team like Milwaukee spending money on a guy like Jeff Suppan. Continue reading

Bud Selig’s Legacy

DAVE TOMAR: As we spend the next several decades debating how this era in baseball should best be understood, the fact that we even have to have this debate is a credit to Selig’s general shittiness as a commissioner. If the steroid scandal was Watergate, than most assuredly, Bud Selig is Richard Nixon; a guy who nobody ever really wanted to give the job to, who weaseled his way in by default and who royally blew it in nearly every capacity.

JASON CLINKSCALES: Allan H. “Bud” Selig is a phenomenally difficult guy to defend.

It can be argued that Selig is the most controversial figure in North American sports. After all, in his commissionership, Major League Baseball has been bruised by a ubiquitous performance-enhancing scandal, a strike and cancellation of the 1994 World Series, growing payroll disparities between franchises, an embarrassing contraction debate, several promotional snafus and bias towards a handful of big-market teams. Yet, despite all of those glaring issues, revenues in Major League Baseball have grown yearly as the game slowly, but surely caught up with modern times. Continue reading
