Mon, 20 Feb 2017 11:01:46 PST

Eric Gagne hasn’t pitched in the majors the past eight seasons. New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra once summed up baseball by saying, “it ain’t over, ’til it’s over,” but we’re not sure this is what he meant. Despite not pitching in the majors since 2008, 41-year-old, former Cy Young winner Eric Gagne believes it’s time for a comeback.

On Saturday, New York Yankees President Randy Levine said Betances' representatives had ''over-the-top demands based on very little sense of reality'' seeking a $5 million salary for 2017. The Yankees won Friday's hearing and are set to pay Betances $3 million for this season. ''There was a lot said,'' Clark, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, said Sunday during his annual visit to the Cactus League in spring training.

Veteran Lester thinks Cubs' youth helps chance for repeating (The Associated Press)

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 23:04:12 PST

No baseball team has repeated as World Series champions since the New York Yankees reigned from 1998 through 2000. Jon Lester, a three-time World Series champion, thinks the Chicago Cubs have a few legs up on the situation. ''The biggest positive on our side is we have so many young guys who aren't banged up, who don't have a lot of innings or at-bats,'' said Lester, who helped Boston to titles in 2007 and 2013, as well as helping to anchor the Cubs' rotation last year.

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 13:09:40 PST

New York Yankees president Randy Levine feels Dellin Betances was the victim of ''over the top demands based on very little sense of reality'' by his representatives at Friday's arbitration hearing won by the team. The Yankees beat Betances in the year's final salary arbitration case, and the relief pitcher will be paid $3 million rather than his $5 million request. ''What his agents did was make him a victim of an attempt to change a market place in baseball that has been well established for 30, 40 years, and I feel bad for him that he was used that way by his agents,'' Levine said Saturday after the decision was announced.

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 13:12:23 PST

Rich Gossage says late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and former players' union head Marvin Miller should join him in Hall of Fame. Steinbrenner, the bombastic and successful owner of the Yankees from 1973 until his death in 2010, failed to gain election in a vote by the Today's Game Era Committee in December. ''He and Marvin Miller probably changed the game more than anybody the last 100 years,'' Gossage said Friday.

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 12:26:11 PST

Brian Cashman says the Yankees are ''not waving any white flag while transitioning'' to a younger team.

New York obtained Chapman in a December 2015 trade with Cincinnati, then dealt the hard-throwing left-hander to the Cubs on July 25 for Adam Warren and three minor leaguers.

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 15:21:56 PST

A lot has changed for the Chicago Cubs in the past year. The Cubs arrive this week at Sloan Park as World Series champions and manager Joe Maddon and Co. are grabbing onto a relatively fresh term: ''That's Cub.'' Maddon, of course, loves to find creative ways to keep the players fresh and focused during a long season. ''That would be Cub, 'That's Cub' to move it forward, to win a World Series and then come back the next season and you're happy and you're impressed and you love what you've done, but you have to continue to move it forward,'' Maddon said.
