For those looking for a brake from football and still craving baseball news check out these recent headlines:

  • Great article about Alex Anthopoulos’ strategy to make the Jays competitive in the AL East.  He’s quickly becoming one of my favorite GMs in baseball.  (credit John Tomase of the Boston Herald)

  • Interesting piece about Eric Hosmer who is becoming The Man for the Royals, as its author would say.  Wish I had an opportunity to go long on Hosmer.  (credit Buster Olney of ESPN – requires Insider subscription)
  • Looks like the Diamondbacks won’t call up Trevor Bauer before the end of the season but it still appears that they will promote Jarrod Parker.  Worth tracking if you have the room for the pickup.  (credit Nick Piecoro of azcentral.com)

  • The Rockies are adding a humidor at their Triple A affiliate in Colorado Springs in the hopes of helping the development of their pitching prospects.  (credit Dave Krieger of the Denver Post)

  • Logan Morrison actually goes through with filing a grievance against the Marlins.  Not sure that’s the right call on his part but his recent issues may provide a buy low opportunity for owners.  (credit Amy K. Nelson of ESPN)

  • Johan Santana won’t pitch this season.  At the beginning of the season I thought he might be a buy low opportunity but I’m not so sure now.  Something to monitor this winter as Santana could make a few starts.  (credit Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News)

  • 2012 may be Pedro Alvarez’s last chance in Pittsburgh.  I’m on the fence on whether I should renew him.  Hopefully he’ll play winter ball and start to build his case for the starting 3B.  (credit Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune)

  • The Dodgers are going to regret trading Trayvon Robinson.  I still don’t understand why they did.  Interesting article about Robinson growing up in South Central Los Angeles.  (credit Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times)
