Orix Buffaloes acquire contract of Pablo Sandoval

After yesterday's news that Pablo Sandoval will be a bench jockey with the Red Sox, despite his big contract with the club, the Orix Buffaloes acted quick. The team from the Japanese professional baseball league NPB, has spent the last few seasons in the cellar of the Pacific League. The Osaka based team has been …

Red Sox stuck with two second basemen?

A blog post on Blleeding Yankee Blue about the Red Sox' acquisition of Yoan Moncada made me think. The Sox signed the kid to a contract with a signing bonus of $31.5 million. Add another $31.5 million tax, imposed by MLB, so that makes a total of $63 million spent on a player who has …

Why not trade Prado for a pitcher?

Earlier today I made a joke on Twitter about a trading Prado to the Giants in exchange for Bumgarner. But afterall this may be not such a bad idea. If the Yankees bring Rob Refsnyder to play second base and he lives up to the expectations, Prado will be a spare part. Sure he can …

Are the Yankees and Red Sox trading places?

This off season, the Red Sox' front office has been far more active than the front office of the Yankees. As we all know, Ben Cherington lured two of the biggest fishes of the free agent pond yesterday. The funny thing is that when the Yankees are making moves like this Boston is shouting that …

How to get through the baseball off season?

Now the Dutch baseball season, the MiLB season and MLB season are over, I slowly start to realize that it is time for baseball hibernation. But the problem is that I don't want to hibernate. I try to postpone that moment as long as possible. What can you do to get through the off season …

2014 World Series: Game 7

       vs  Yesterday I wrote that this years' World Series end in a way how every World Series should end: With a game seven. I can say that every game seven should be like this years' game seven. Once again it was a nailbiter. Jeremy Guthrie started very well by retiring the first three batters …

2014 World Series: game 5

  vs  Game five was a copy of game one. Madison Bumgarner dominated the hitters of the Royals. The score was a bit different though. Bumgarner went the distance and allowed four hits and struck out eight for the win. With this outing he lowered his ERA for the World Series to a microscopic 0.56. …

2014 World Series: game 4

           vs  In a timespan of three innings the Giants broke the stronghold of the Royals' bullpen. After game three, Giants' manager Bruce Bochy said that the Royals' bullpen was one of the best around. Yesterday they did nothing to prove his point. After the Royals had taken a 4-1 lead in the top …

Dutchies in the MLB play offs: NLCS game 5

    vs  The game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the team of batting coach Hensley Meulens went back and forth a couple of times. Both teams had a lead before it was tied in the eighth on a solo homer by Michael Morse; the Giants relied on the long ball very much last …

Dutchies in the MLB playoffs: NLCS game 3

          vs   In game three in San Francisco, the score was tied after nine innings, so extra innings were needed. The team of hitting coach Hensley Meulens took a 4-0 lead in the first inning. But when the game continued, the Cardinals inched closer and eventually they scored the tying run in the …
