Rich Hill Signing Would Be Great Yankees Fit for Both Present and Future

Justin Verlander won the popular vote, which is worth about as much this week as it was last week.

Edwin Encarnacion Is Ideal Red Sox Replacement for David Ortiz

Surely, Boston Red Sox fans can't believe David Ortiz is retiring. We understand. Your great-aunt who couldn't tell a Carl Yastrzemski from a hole in the ground understands.

But Big Papi is indeed hanging 'em up.

Yankees Can Have Fruitful Offseason Without Halting Youth Movement

The offseason has arrived. For the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, that means taking a moment to reflect on an epic seven-game World Series. For the Cubs in particular, it means getting used to the moniker "world champion" for the first time in 108 years.
