  • NEW YORK — Brian McCann was in the Bronx on Thursday to put on his pinstripes for the first time, and the Yankees officially took their first step toward returning to the playoffs after missing out for only the second time in the wild card era.With 夜网论坛a five-year, $85 million deal for McCann now on the books, and a seven-year, $153 million contract for center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury soon to be finalized, the Yankees are doing what they do best, paying stars top dollar. They spend money to make money, and when they make money, they spend it again. The Yankees want to get their payroll under $189 million for 2014, but want is very different from need. — SN picks Public Enemy No. 1 for every team"It's an absolute goal, and yes, I think we can do it, but it's not going to come at the expense of fielding a good team," Hal Steinbrenner. "Right now, we're still under it. Right now, we've still got a decent amount of money to spend, quite frankly, and we're gonna. We're gonna put it back into the team the way that we always do."

    trade rumors: Are White Sox willing to deal Chris Sale?

  • The market for free-agent starting pitchers is thin, so teams are "pushing" the Chicago White Sox to deal ace Chris Sale, FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports.And the White Sox apparently will listen to offers, Rosenthal writes. But White Sox chairman Jerry夜网论坛 Reinsdorf tells the Chicago Tribune he doesn't expect the team to move Sale. Sale, 24, is under team control through 2019, so Chicago likely would hold out for a major haul before dealing him. The lefty had a 3.04 ERA (good for seventh in the AL), 1.073 WHIP (third) and 226 strikeouts (third) in 2013. He also was the winning pitcher in the All-Star Game.Overall, Sale is 32 -25 with a 2.97 ERA and 1.103 WHIP in four seasons with the ChiSox.[......]

    Dodgers' Yasiel Puig off the hook in reckless driving charge

  • Going 110 on a Florida highway got Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig in trouble. He will answer to the speeding allegation, but prosecutors have decided not to pursue a reckless driving charge.Puig and the term reckless are synonymous on the field, where he is equally capable of eye-popping plays and game-altering misplays. And given his hype after a breakout season in 2013, December's arrest was newsworthy. So, too, is word of the charge's dismissal. A memo from prosecutors explained that excessive speed wasn't sufficient to prosecute the case without other aggravating factors, such as weaving in and out of traffic, losing control of the vehicle or causing other motorists to brake or swerve. Puig, 23-year-old Cuban defector, was flagged by state troopers near Naples, Fla., while flying through Alligator Alley in his white Mercedes. He was going 40 mph over the limit.In April last year, Puig was clocked going 97 in a 50 mph zone in Tennessee, while playing for the Dodgers' Class AA affiliate. Those charges also wer夜网论坛e later dismissed.Dodgers officials issued a statement telling of their disappointment in Puig, who later hired a driver.[......]

    Mike Trout contract: Angels superstar agrees to six-year, $144.5M deal

  • Turns out Miguel Cabrera's $284 million-plus contract extension did not make Mike Trout any richer. Trout was assured a nine-figure deal before the Cabrera deal was done.It may have sped up negotiations between Trout and the Los Angeles Angels, though, because the club announced this before its Freeway Series game against the Dodgers on Friday night: #Angels and @Trouty20 have agreed to terms on a 6-year contract extension! Official announcement to come tomorrow.— Los Angeles Angels (@Angels) March 29, 2014Trout, 22, will receive $144.5 million over the life of 夜网论坛the deal, which begins in 2015, according to the Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin.There are no opt outs in Trout's contract. Value confirmed at $144.5 million. #angels— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) March 29, 2014Earlier reports put the money in the $150 million range. Trout will make $1 million this season. Trout also received full no-trade protection.Trout’s deal includes full no trade clause, which is to be expected. #Angels— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) March 29, 2014Regardless of the number, the contract obliterates records for average annual value for a player with such little service time as Trout (two years, 70 days). The pact buys out all three years of the outfielder's arbitration eligibility and the first three years of his free-agent eligibility.Many observers believe Trout sold himself short on this contract, given the Cabrera comp and the belief that Trout is the superior overall player.

MORE: Game 1 boxscore | Game 2 boxscore | Baseball boom Down Under?"The first one (game) I really enjoyed actually, this one not quite as much," Mattingly declared. "At the end of the day it's a win ... but it was a frustrating one."We walked seven batters in the last four innings and really gave them a chance to get back in the game.

This ends up getting us in trouble."But aside from the Dodgers' late shakes, Mattingly was overwhelmingly positive about the Australian experiment."It's good to leave here with the two wins. It was a great experience," he said."Being able to play in this atmosphere -- I thought there was a great atmosphere the last couple of days. So that's all positive.
