New York Mets extend GM Sandy Alderson’s contract
It was announced earlier today that the New York Mets have extended their General Manager Sandy Alderson for three more seasons. Along with Alderson, manager Terry Collins will be returning for the 2015 season.

Next Cuban sensation Yasmai Tomas to hold private workout for Phillies
As I previously reported here on Call to the Pen, the Philadelphia Phillies are the team that is likely going to go after, the soon to be free agent, Cuban outfielder Yasmani Tomas.

Blood Sport delivers on more than just Biogenesis scandal
A few months back, I obtained a copy of the book Blood Sport by Tim Elfrink of the Miami New Times and Gus Garcia-Roberts of Newsday. As much as the Biogenesis scandal was still relatively fresh in my mind, I reluctantly placed the book aside in order to read with a less influenced mind. Turned […] Blood Sport delivers on more than just Biogenesis scandal -

Andrew McCutchen the pitch-magnet and the hypocritical Pirates
Last night, the Pirates engaged in something all to familiar for their fans and supporters. They were shouting at the opposing pitcher after the reining NL MVP Andrew McCutchen was hit. Matt Garza, the guilty party, was ejected along with manager Ron Roenicke after the benches had already been warned. Garza called anyone who thought he […] Andrew McCutchen the p...

Baseball Stew: Showalter and O’s World Series bound?
In mid-August this year I interviewed Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter. It seems that despite his solid value system, his contributions to the game, and his insights into baseball, he is too often singled out for one thing, the uncanny ability to take a team and turn things around. It is certainly true he has […] Baseball Stew: Showalter and O’s World Series bou...

The Mets ended the Braves’ hopes for any October post season play with a fine effort by the Mets’ rookie pitching phenom, Jacob deGrom, as they beat the Braves 10-2. Ervin Santana had no trouble summing up the collapse that ended Atlanta’s postseason hopes. “As a pitcher, we have our confidence up, but you either […] METS KO THE BRAVES’ CHANCES FOR ...

Tanaka solid in return to Yankees
Masahiro Tanaka made his return to the New York Yankees on Sunday. He allowed one earned run on five hits in 5.1 innings. Surprisingly, manager Joe Girardi allowed Tanaka to throw 70 pitches, 48 of which were for strikes. So, it is so far so good for the rookie right-hander who is coming off attempting […] Tanaka solid in return to Yankees -

Padres to keep manager Bud Black, after firing GM Josh Byrnes
When the San Diego Padres fired their general manager Josh Byrnes and hired the now former assistant general manager of the Texas Rangers A.J. Preller to replace him, there was speculation that manager Bud Black‘s job with the team might also be in jeopardy. According to a report Sunday by’s Barry M. Bloom, Barry […] Padres to keep manager Bud Bl...

Stroman drops appeal, suspension reduced to 5 games
Marcus Stroman began serving what was once a six game suspension Sunday, for throwing at the head of Baltimore Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph on Monday.

After scoring the 1,920th run in his storied career in the third inning in Saturday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Derek Jeter took sole possession of ninth place all-time on the runs scored list. Once he crossed the home plate for almost 2,000th time in his big league career he scored one more run […] Jeter unties himself from A-Rod on the all-time r...

Please Kansas City, Be Royal
Kansas City wants the Royals in the postseason, I want the Royals in the postseason and I think most of America (excluding Detroit, Seattle, Oakland and maybe Cleveland) want the Royals in the postseason. So why are they making it so hard on us? After their second straight defeat to Detroit yesterday, the Royals now […] Please Kansas City, Be Royal -
