It’s too soon to evaluate Machado trade, but not to evaluate Machado

Everyone wants to know if the Orioles received excellent value in their deal for Manny Machado. Much to their disappointment, the answer is—ask again in 2020 or 2021. It’s possible that none of the five players the Orioles got from the Los Angeles Dodgers for Machado—outfielder Yusniel Diaz, infielders...

Column: Nationals Park MLB All-Star Game showed Washington, D.C. shining in national spotlight

D.C. sports fans should be proud. A cold chill ran through my body when I entered the Third Base Gate at Nationals Park for the 2018 MLB All-Star Game on Sunday. It was the same feeling I had when my parents took me to Disney World. I remember being a little kid, watching the All-Star Game every year with the hope of attending the Midsummer classic during my lifetime. As I walked around the stadium and brushed past baseball fans from all over the country, the little kid inside me was unleashed. It was like a dream. Mike Trout and Aaron Judge taking batting practice. Max Scherzer...

Five projects the Rangers need to take on in the second half of the season - or even by the trade deadline

Five projects the Rangers need to take on in the second half of the season - or even by the trade deadline

As the Rangers prepare for the second half of the season and kick their organizational overhaul into first gear, they approach it with 2020 vision.Or 2021. Possibly 2022.What’s clear is the rebuild won’t be completed by the trade deadline or by the coming offseason. This is a long-term project. And though it’s been clear since the first month of the season that this was the direction the team was headed, only now can it take the first big steps towards actually implementing changes.The trade deadline may allow the Rangers to restructure the roster. It may allow for more experimentation...

Victor Reyes is finally getting a chance to impress

Victor Reyes is finally getting a chance to impress

An injury to Leonys Martín left a big hole, but Victor Reyes is doing a decent job filling it. Let’s be honest. Nobody really wanted Victor Reyes. He didn’t make sense with the roster. There were seemingly better options on the table, as the Tigers drafted first in the Rule 5 draft. He simply didn’t impress in any single aspect of his game other than his size and speed combo. The front office was either unwilling or unable to trade for his rights and send him to Toledo, and so Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire seemed set to use him as Victor Martinez’ personal pinch runner. The whole...

the A’s and the Mariners are close in the standings, but they’ve gotten there in different ways When we first came up with this series idea, the Mariners hadn’t yet stomped the Angels in a three-game sweep, Garrett Richards wasn’t on the DL, and I had recently published this piece about how the Angels and Mariners were set up to enjoy a good old-fashioned rivalry last seen in PST when the Seahawks went toe-to-toe with the 49ers. With Houston’s core of young, controllable talent and world-beating pitching, it seemed like the Mariners and the Angels, owners of the Best Player in...

Justus Sheffield lone Yankees prospect on Keith Law’s midseason top 50

Justus Sheffield lone Yankees prospect on Keith Law’s midseason top 50

The left-hander takes the number 12 spot, but there are some notable absences. Earlier today, Keith Law released his midseason top 50 prospects list. Curiously enough, only one member of the Yankees’ farm system cracked the list. Justus Sheffield, the club’s top pitching project, ranked number 12. Law talks up Sheffield’s velocity and plus slider, as demonstrated at last weekend’s Futures Game. He’s skeptical of the southpaw’s changeup usage and offered remarks on his generally poor command. Still, he gives the Yankees’ top minor league arm a positive outlook. “He’s very...
