MLB season preview: The Red Sox have sky-high expectations to meet (Big League Stew)

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 15:15:19 PDT

The Boston Red Sox are coming off a year in which they won their division and looked like a World Series contender, only to get swept out of the postseason. Pablo Sandoval is back and slimmer than we’ve seen him. The youth movement has fully arrived too — as Andrew Benintendi is expected to be their everyday left fielder and Mookie Betts is expected to play like an MVP for the next 10 years or so.



Royals, key players looking for bounce-back season in 2017 (The Associated Press)

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 11:03:52 PDT

The Kansas City Royals and Alex Gordon were both flying high a year ago, the team coming off its first World Series title in three decades and the star outfielder having signed a new long-term contract. The Royals stumbled through a dismal July that left them in no man's land, too far out of contention to make a serious run at the division title yet not far enough out that they began selling off. Gordon was already struggling in late May when he broke his wrist in a collision with third baseman Mike Moustakas, who wound up missing the rest of the year with a torn ACL.

Now champs, stacked Chicago Cubs aim for World Series repeat (The Associated Press)

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 11:32:41 PDT

Somewhere along the line, at some point on the way to a historic World Series title, Kris Bryant and the Chicago Cubs figured out how much they enjoyed winning together at the big league level. ''Getting a lot of questions about how do you not be complacent,'' Bryant said, ''and that's why, because it was so much fun that you want to go through it again, and that's the only answer I'll ever be able to give, because both individually and as a team, that success is something that you strive for and you want every year you play this game. No major league team has won consecutive World Series since the New York Yankees won three in a row from 1998-2000, but the Cubs begin the year in an enviable position after winning it all in November for the first time since 1908.

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 16:03:09 PDT

A stress fracture in the knuckle of the ring finger on his pitching hand slowed Scherzer and caused him to grip his fastball with the middle three fingers instead of the usual index and middle fingers.



MLB season preview: Mets pitchers are healthy and expectations are sky high (Big League Stew)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 11:45:59 PDT

OK, maybe that’s not exactly it, but that sure is the gist of the season for the 2017 New York Mets, who lost in the wild-card game last season after their 2015 World Series run. The Mets went through so many pitching injuries last season that it’s a wonder they made the postseason. If they’d advanced any further, it would’ve been Noah Syndergaard and Bartolo Colon leading their rotation.

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 16:26:39 PDT

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 15:58:50 PDT

An offseason that looked like it might drain some of the power of the mighty Toronto Blue Jays lineup ended being … not as bad as it could have been.

Will Kendrys Morales do enough to replace Edwin Encarnacion, who went to the Cleveland Indians in free agency?
