I wanted one more year. We got one more year!

Cleveland wants Jason Giambi in the organization for 2014.

The Arizona Fall League is underway, and Carson Cistulli's AFL article on Fangraphs includes a mention of Addison Russell.

Frank Jackson talks about autumn in Arizona.

Hey everybody, it's Leif Erikson Day! Hinga dinga durgen!

The Mariners are not interested in hiring Joe Girardi, but, as previously speculated, Chip Hale is on their shortlist.

On this day a year ago, Brett Anderson led the A's to a 2-0 shutout win in Game 3. The game was highlight by Coco Crisp's incredible catch and a solo home run by Seth Smith, as well as a raucous crowd at the Coliseum.
