Baseball, perhaps more than any other sport, is a game of strategy. The glory is, that with 162 games, managers and coaches get the chance to tinker with things much more than football, ice hockey and basketball coaches. The downside to that is it means...
Last week's ranking in parentheses 1. Rangers (1): Ran their top three pitchers at the Red Sox in an impressive weekend sweep started by Derek Holland and finished by Yu Darvish, with Alexi Ogando in between. Looking very smart for letting Josh Hamilton...

The guy on the stage last week conducting the question-and-answer session with front-office personnel, players and manager Charlie Manuel at the Phillies Winter Banquet may not have been instantly recognizable to the 1,100 people gathered at the Sands...
