If you want to pick Royals...

One huge difference between this season’s Royals and last season’s Royals? This year’s Royals don’t have two of last season’s best pitchers: starter James Shields, who left via free agency, and closer Greg Holland, who’s out for a long while with a serious elbow injury. But they didn’t miss Shields during the regular season, and last October he went 1-2 and gave up...

Diamondbacks not anti-analytics; they're crunching numbers like rest of MLB

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart seemed to draw a line in the sand against analytics last January, saying the team appealed to free-agent right-hander James Shields because of its old-school ways. "I think the fact that Tony (La Russa) is here and that we have more baseball people -- (Shields) probably sees us as a true baseball team vs. some of the other teams out here...

An August Deal Swapping Panda For Shields?

Panda (L), Shields (R)—(Getty Images)Dave Cameron of offers up an interesting August trade idea—pretty much along the lines we suggested earlier today.

Should the Padres just blow the whole thing up?

No team made more noise this past offseason than the San Diego Padres, engaging in seemingly endless roster turnover in hopes of putting a contending team on the field.
