HumpLinks: Could be worse. Could be raining.

El Nino keeps threatening. But if the storm clouds keep passing us by, at least we have MLB news to rain on our baseball news. Most of what I dug up last night was bummer news. Except for the MLB blackout link and a fan event, it was a lot of negativity. I don't want to end my night on that note, so I'll just throw in one positive thing to think about even though there is nothing newsworthy there. Here goes: Andrew Heaney!!! Watch this trigger something today about Howie Kendrick.... But cool. I can add that to my 24-hour Mike Trout-a-Thon and hand over the duties to you to read the...

Abject system makes Howie Kendrick's loss a gain for Dodgers

Howie Kendrick, poster boy. Not exactly what Kendrick had in mind when his off-season called. He seemed headed for his first true major contract. A career of superb play now rewarded with a big free-agent payoff. Only it never happened. Days and weeks went by and the interest never developed. “Nothing,’’...

Finally the required Andre Ethier rumor: White Sox exploring deal

Ah, finally a real Andre Ethier rumor. Inevitable as a spring blossom, but seemingly made more so this year because it can be argued this time the Dodgers need to trade him before his 10-5 rights kick on April 21. After that, they can’t deal him without his permission. Yet it’s been oddly quiet...

It would serve Corey Seager better to dial back superstar storyline
