US Presswire photo Mike Rizzo has made plenty of roster alterations since taking over as GM in 2009. Underneath all the hoopla surrounding Theo Epstein's move from the front office at Fenway Park to the front office at Wrigley Field lies one important caveat: No general manager can step into a new situation and completely…

US Presswire photo Albert Pujols was a man among boys in Game 2. This has become a postseason known for some pretty darn dramatic baseball. Unfortunately, it's also become a postseason known for some pretty annoying rain delays. First pitch for Game 4 of the ALCS in Detroit today was delayed more than two hours,…

US Presswire photo Jose Valverde closed out the Tigers' Game 3 victory. What a performance last night by the Detroit Tigers, who facing a must-win situation and all kinds of injuries seized control of Game 3 of the ALCS and beat the Texas Rangers, 5-2. Can they do it again? Injuries once again are the…

Ryan Zimmerman made an appearance in the CSN studios yesterday and took some time to talk on-air with Ivan Carter.

US Presswire photo Nelson Cruz was again the hero for Texas in Game 2. Though the Rangers have stormed out to a 2-0 advantage in the ALCS, this has actually been a very competitive series.

US Presswire photo Jim Riggleman will interview for the Mets' vacant bench coach job today. Though Jim Riggleman knew he might never get a chance to manage again when he abruptly resigned from the Nationals in June over a contract dispute, he also knew he still had plenty of friends in the game who might…

US Presswire photo Prince Fielder's Game 1 homer catapulted the Brewers to victory. Game 1 of the NLCS was a slug fest practically from the moment Zack Greinke threw his first pitch of the afternoon.

US Presswire photo Nelson Cruz's homer helped lead the Rangers to victory in Game 1. Hey, what do you know, they're actually going to play baseball today in Texas! This after postponing last night's scheduled Game 2 of the ALCS because of the threat of heavy rain all evening. Except, it never really rained. Go…

US Presswire photo Stephen Strasburg could be a playoff ace, but the Nats would need more pitching. While watching some absolutely thrilling postseason baseball over the last 10 days, I can't help but wonder how far away the Nationals are from competing alongside these October contenders. Clearly, the Nats as currently constructed aren't on par…
