Following up on my comparison between the terrific 2009 rotation with those of the late 1990s, this post assesses the sterling 2009 bullpen and gauges its performance along side the late 1990s dynasty.

In turn, I figured a look back at last year’s championship staff would allow a worthwhile comparison between last ...
“Salary cap” Those are two words you are unlikely to see when the 2011 collective bargaining agreement is reached, if the Yankees and other large-market baseball teams have their way. Equally unlikely, given the perennial opposition of both small-market teams and the MLBPA to it, is the likelihood that “salary floor” will appear in the final ...
