Baseball Side of FanSided (12/26)


Time to take a stroll around the MLB blogs of FanSided.  This is a day late because I was having too much fun with the in-laws the last couple days to get anything published yesterday.

  • Birds Watcher has more on the signing of Garrett Atkins.
  • Blog Red Machine reports on the restructured contract of Scott Rolen.
  • BoSox Injection takes a look at Jason Bay and his limited options.
  • Jays Journal gives some thoughts on Alex Anthopolous going the extra mile with Jeremy Accardo.  An approach that uses kindness and understanding instead of arrogance and ignorance?  I hope it works out, and I hope Dayton Moore is taking notes.
  • Lasorda’s Lair believes that the Dodgers are getting worse the longer they take to make a move. The observation, in this case, is 100% spot on.  On the flip side, Royals fans have seen the negative consequences of a GM making moves too quickly when the offseason rolls around.
  • Marlin Maniac selects Josh Johnson’s 2009 as the 7th best season turned in by a Marlin this decade.
  • Motor City Bengals gives a public look into this Baseball Bloggers Alliance HOF ballot.
  • Rayhawk Review reacts to the news of Kelvim Escobar signing with the Mets and not the Rays.
  • Reviewing the Brew thinks the Brewers have more work to do this offseason to be considered a contender.
  • Rising Apple thinks the organization should be ashamed of itself.  Good to know that there are teams with more dysfunctional leadership than the Royals out there.
  • Rum Bunter sheds some light on the political career of Raul Mondesi.
  • Sodo Mojo offers up two reactions to the Brandon Morrow trade.  One from Griffin and one from Harrison.
  • Teddy Never Wins got a nice Christmas present in the form of RHP-Matt Capps.
  • That Balls Outta Here covers the saga of the mystery reliever.  If it does end up being Mac the Knife, remember these number Phillies fans; 83 and 85.  That is the number of BB (83) and SO (85) that MacDougal has had from 2007 to 2009.
  • Tomahawk Take reacts to the Braves’ signing of Troy Glaus.
  • Twinkie Talk has starting running down the top 15 prospects in the Twins system.  Click here to check out #15 and here for #14
  • Yanks Go Yard reacts briefly to the Vazquez trade.

More coming soon as I get into post-Christmas mode and back up to speed.
