Angels’ Justin Upton ‘increasing likely’ to opt out, become free agent

Angels outfielder Justin Upton’s decision to opt out of his contract and test free agency this offseason is “increasing likely,” according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. Upton has not made his decision public yet. Upton has three days following the conclusion of the World Series to decide to exercise his opt-out clause. Morosi says that by opting out, the 30-year-old veteran can use this as a way to negotiate “more favorable terms” on a new deal with Los Angeles. Morris added that Upton “enjoyed playing” for the Angels, his fifth team in 11 seasons in the majors. After being...

Justin Upton didn’t hit a HR into the Sherwin Williams paint can: An explainer

Justin Upton didn’t hit a HR into the Sherwin Williams paint can: An explainer

Some fans (and a TON of writers) are wondering why Sherwin Williams isn’t donating $1 million to charity after Justin Upton’s HR last night, so I figured I’d do a public service and clear up this situation. Last night, Justin Upton, who has been mashing baseballs with aplomb in the past week, continued his hot streak by hitting a home run into left-center during the ninth inning. It brought the Angels within three runs of the Indians, and it was hit really well, but outside of those two facts, there wasn’t really anything noteworthy about his jack. Oh, I guess I could also mention...

Tigers vs. Athletics Preview: Offense still isn’t Detroit’s problem

Tigers vs. Athletics Preview: Offense still isn’t Detroit’s problem

Even after injuries and trades, the Tigers are still scoring runs. Given everything their offense has gone through this year, the Detroit Tigers have no business scoring runs. They traded J.D.

They lost Martinez, Miguel Cabrera, and Victor Martinez to injuries for long stretches of the season. Cabrera and Victor Martinez have also had their offensive production sapped by those injuries; both are below replacement level players for the season, and neither has even been a league...
