Joe Ross passed quietly through the Washington Nationals' clubhouse in the final two months of the season, there, but not really. Ross had Tommy John surgery July 19 to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. His uncertain status for next season is a microcosm of the ...

Miguel Cabrera's deposition in paternity case postponed

Cabrera had been scheduled to give a deposition in the case Thursday morning in Orlando. Miguel Cabrera won't give a deposition as originally scheduled Thursday morning, postponing what might have been contentious sworn testimony between the Detroit Tigers star and lawyers for the woman suing him for child support. A new hearing has been set for Oct. 27, according to court documents. That's two days after court-mandated mediation sessions, suggesting there could be another push to reach an out-of-court settlement in the case.  Belkis Mariela Rodriguez, a...

2017 Mets Season Review: After a brutal start, Jose Reyes finished the year strong

The longtime Met played five different positions and had a productive second half. Jose Reyes had an up-and-down year for the Mets—or, more precisely, a year that started down and finished up. After a miserable first half in which he hit .215/.284/.370 (74 wRC+), Reyes rebounded with an excellent .288/.356/.472 (121 wRC+) line the rest of the way. Going into the year, the Mets’ plan was to use Reyes as a utility infielder. Due to a series of injuries and trades, however, Reyes became an everyday player, appearing in 145 games at second, third, and short. He even got a few innings in...

Wire Taps: Will Washington Nationals change managers, coaching staff? No love for Matt Wieters + more...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news while we wait for some real news at some point this winter... and prepare for a year of Bryce Harper chatter... It’s that time of year, where things are over for all but four teams and news has slowed to a crawl, but that doesn’t mean we won’t keep searching the internets every day and sharing what we’ve found. Had enough of the “Will Dusty Baker return?” talk yet? How about the “Will this be Bryce Harper’s last season in D.C.?” chatter? If you thought the Stephen Strasburg shutdown story in 2012 was interminable back then,...

MLB Bullets reaches a verdict

The Yankees come back and Aaron Judge is a star again. The Dodgers are good. A radical realignment proposal. Baseball chips in to help a kid who lost everything in a fire. I’m sure everyone is in a terrific mood today. By the way, I think I’m running out of “Judge” puns. The Yankees have won the last two games of the American League Championship Series and outfielder Aaron Judge has homered in both of them. Ian O’Connor writes that Judge has officially entered the pantheon of Yankees October gods. Tom Verducci marvels at Judge and compares him to Derek Jeter, thinking that Judge...

A year after 1st title since 1908, Cubs trail Dodgers 3-0

CHICAGO (AP) - Kyle Schwarber had the fans roaring, thinking the Chicago Cubs just might be ready to tighten the NL Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Turns out, his first-inning was about all they had to cheer. Yu Darvish shut down Chicago after Schwarber went deep, and the ...
