Atlanta Braves: Could Keep R.A. Dickey Another Season

The Atlanta Braves have an interesting decision to make this off-season as to whether or not to keep R.A. Dickey next season. With a team option and the knuckle-baller being the Braves’ most consistent starter the move would make sense. The Atlanta Braves added three veteran starters to the team last off-season.

Are the Braves cutting payroll to go big in 2018 or just to help their bottom line?

Are the Braves cutting payroll to go big in 2018 or just to help their bottom line?

The Braves’ moves of late have been of the cost cutting variety. Are these signals of things to come? Coming into 2017, we heard quite a bit about how the Braves were going to be expanding their payroll in order to be competitive this year and beyond. With the new stadium and the surrounding businesses expected to bring in more revenue for the team, at least some of those gains were expected to be reinvested in the club. For the most part, that is how the year started. The Braves spent some cash to sign Bartolo Colon (one year, $12.5 million....that one stings), RA Dickey (one year, $7.5...

Twins 8, Rangers 4: Bartolo Colon just pitched a complete game at 44 years old

Twins 8, Rangers 4: Bartolo Colon just pitched a complete game at 44 years old

I don’t believe what I just saw. Bartolo Colon started for the Twins Friday night against the Rangers. He gave up two runs in the top of the first inning, putting the Twins in an early 2-0 hole. It looked bad. To say that no one saw what was coming next would be an understatement. Colon—yes, the 44-year-old, rotund, and struggling pitcher—pitched a complete-game for the Twins. It wasn’t a shutout, but the Twins still won 8-4. It makes Colon the oldest pitcher to ever pitch a complete game for the Twins, and the oldest pitcher in MLB to pitch a complete game since Jaime Moyer in...

Bartolo Colon looks to build off of solid outing when he faces the Rangers

The Twins are 2-8 over the last 10 games and could use a win in the worst way as they play the second of a four game series against Texas.

Regularly Scheduled Rain Delay: Six Degrees of Bartolo Colon

Regularly Scheduled Rain Delay: Six Degrees of Bartolo Colon

We’re at that point in the season where pretty much everything is a foregone conclusion, and I am left with nothing humorous to write about. I’ve written about soccer too many times to comment on Neymar to PSG, the trade deadline has passed so that’s out, and Scooter Gennett hasn’t done anything of interest in …

A’s to face old friend Bartolo Colon

Bartolo Colon will start Sunday against the A’s, and that’ll generate a few smiles in the home dugout. “I always knew when he didn’t want to come out of the game,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “I’d go down to the end of the dugout, and he’d throw a towel over his head as if I couldn’t see him. “I knew that meant, ‘I’m still ready to pitch a couple of more innings.’ ” Colon, 44, pitched for the 2012 and 2013 A’s, winning 28 games and posting a 2.99 ERA. The Twins, who signed the right-hander this month after the...

Tonight will probably be Bartolo Colon’s final MLB game

Tonight will probably be Bartolo Colon’s final MLB game

The Twins need to clear two spots on their roster after tonight’s game, which looks like bad news for Big Sexy. After Bartolo Colon struggled in his first start for the Twins last week against the Yankees, rumors swirled that he planned to retire after his next major league start. His next major league start is, of course, his start tonight against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. I read Colon’s statements at the time and argued that no, he didn’t actually say he planned to retire—at least as long as the Twins kept him on their roster. Well, there is now a very, very real chance the...

Braves turn few months of Jaime Garcia into a decent trade return

Braves turn few months of Jaime Garcia into a decent trade return

The Braves picked up a prospect and got the Twins to take on the rest of Jaime Garcia’s contract. Not bad. The mini-saga involving the Braves and Twins with Jaime Garcia at the center of trade talks has reached its final destination, as the two clubs have finally agreed to a deal that will send Garcia and Anthony Recker to Minnesota. As far as the Twins are concerned, their rotation is their clear and glaring weakness — as evidenced by the fact that they were willing to take a flier on Bartolo Colon (who is reportedly seriously considering retirement at the moment) to help their...
