Heath Bell trade will set market value for league’s relievers

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Trades,

Heath BellHeath Bell looks like one of the most attractive players who may be available at this year’s non-waiver trade deadline. Reports are coming out of most cities saying that team so-and-so has inquired about Bell, but does that mean San Diego Padres GM Jed Hoyer is likely to trade him? Not necessarily. Many GMs will call Hoyer simply to find out the asking price for Bell, many of whom have no interest in actually putting together a deal.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, Rumors,

Jim RigglemanA managerial change in professional sports usually grabs headlines for a day or so before things return to normal, especially in-season. But the situation developing with former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman walking out on his team after they won a game on Thursday night has continued to pique interests nationwide. Riggleman cites a lack of respect as baseball’s lowest-paid manager as one reason why he chose to relieve himself as the skipper and leave.

Is Adam Dunn starting to heat up?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Adam DunnAdam Dunn belted his seventh home run of the season on Sunday; the 361st of his career to tie Joe DiMaggio on the all-time list. The man who is just as popular for his home runs as he is infamous for his strikeouts finally hit two long balls in the same week. While the bomb helped the Chicago White Sox overcome the Oakland Athletics in the game, Dunn still has a long way to go to salvage what is quickly becoming a season to forget.

Shaun Marcum and the Milwaukee Brewers trying to right the ship

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Shaun MarcumPicked to finish in the mid-80s in wins by many experts, the Milwaukee Brewers got off to a rough start, losing their first four in a row, including the season opener by way of a walk-off home run. They’re playing under-.500 so far and have already put themselves in a hole. While the season is still young, there are already a few disappointments making this difficult for the Brew Crew. First of all, Zack Greinke has yet to make an appearance (and likely won’t until May) and secondly, Shaun Marcum has been anything but Marcum-esque.

Reds prospect Devin Mesoraco making noise in Arizona

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Devin MesoracoThe Cincinnati Reds seem to have a surplus of catching available to them. Most recently, Devin Mesoraco, their 2007 Draft Pick, has caused a few ripples in the organization. While playing behind Ramon Hernandez and Ryan Hanigan on the depth chart, Mesoraco is making it known that he’s gunning for a position in the big leagues, and it may be difficult for the Reds to deny him that right for much longer.

Behind the plate with Bill Bergen

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Bill BergenBill Bergen isn’t a name you would recognize. He was a catcher in the majors from 1901 until 1911. After playing three seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, he moved over to Brooklyn to suit up with the Dodgers for the rest of his career. What makes him notable though is his .170 batting average over 3,228 plate appearances throughout his career. This is a record for players with more than 2,500 plate appearances; one of many records that Bergen unfortunately holds.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors,

Aaron HarangThe San Diego Padres have begun to retool after having their starting rotation decimated. They lost Jon Garland and Kevin Correia, who combined for 24 wins last year, and also saw Chris Young leave the team, who was injured for most of the season, but who also has the potential to be an excellent pitcher in the middle of a rotation. Reports are surfacing that the Padres have inked former Cincinnati Reds starter Aaron Harang to a one-year deal worth $3 million.

Joey Votto, Edison Volquez and Johnny Cueto all arbitration-eligible

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors,

Joey VottoThe Cincinnati Reds may have found an expensive problem for themselves this offseason. All of Edinson Volquez, Johnny Cueto and MVP candidate Joey Votto are all eligible for arbitration, and all have made cases that they’re worth significantly more than the $1.5M combined they have earned this past year. It’s likely that each one will earn money individually next season that will eclipse this combined total. But can the Reds afford to spend that much more money?
