Is there any chance of Max Scherzer re-signing with the Tigers?
2014-11-17

General manager Dave Dombrowski told Jason Beck of MLB.com that well just wait and see what happens because he doesnt expect Scherzer and his agent, Scott Boras, to move the process along quickly. And of course Boras is very open to the idea of Scherzer returning to Detroit, because he simply wants the most interested teams as possible in the mix.

However, the Tigers seemingly acquired David Price from the Rays in part to replace Scherzer atop the rotation in 2015 and, even without Scherzer returning, Detroits rotation will approach an $80 million payroll by itself next season. And the Tigers just spent $68 million to re-sign 36-year-old designated hitter Victor Martinez.

MLB: A.L. a -122 favorite to extend All-Star reign
2010-07-13

Other than a tie in the 2003 Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Milwaukee, the American League has won every year since 1996. Since the advent of the rule giving home field advantage in the World Series to the winning league, the A.L. is 7-0, going on to win the Fall Classic four times. It’s been said that not only does the N.L. want to win on Tuesday, it NEEDS to. Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com expect the streak to continue however, installing the Junior Circuit as -122 favorites with a total of 8.5 OV-115. Let’s take a look at the all-important contest, with first pitch scheduled for a little after 8:30 PM ET.

Looking to finally break through after four consecutive one-run losses and rule the Midsummer Classic for the first time since ‘96, the NL appears well stocked for the challenge of claiming World Series home-field advantage at last for its league champion. In this year of the pitcher, the National League is downright loaded, even for an All-Star game, with the best of the best coming to Orange County on Tuesday night.

Coincidence or not, the N.L. has not won an All-Star game with Derek Jeter of the Yankees in the opposing lineup. Jeter will again be the American League’s starting shortstop on Tuesday night, hitting second in the batting order.

The A.L. reign is starting to wear on players from the Senior Circuit. “This should be the year for us to go out there and hopefully end this drought,” Phillies’ 1B Ryan Howard said. “I’m getting tired of hearing about the American League winning and how long they’ve won, every year for the last 13 years or whatnot. Basically go out there and try to change it up.”

Howard is confident though, specifically because of the pitching that his team will have ready. There’s Colorado 15-game winner Ubaldo Jimenez starting at Angel Stadium. In the bullpen: Marlins ace Josh Johnson, Mr. perfect Roy Halladay and two-time reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. And so on.

“We know everyone’s here to have a good time but at the same time our priority is to win the game,” Jimenez said. Jimenez, 15-1, has a 2.20 ERA in 18 starts and 127 innings for the surging Rockies.

The AL run is one of the more perplexing streaks in sports. Is it simply a quirk, or evidence of true dominance? The American League has ruled interleague play for several years, and also done well in the World Series, winning four of the last six titles.

You’d think the NL might have caught a break at some point in a span of more than a decade, just getting one ball to bounce its way.

In 2008 at Yankee Stadium, the National League had 15 innings to make it happen and came up short. The previous year in San Francisco, a crazy ball off the wall gave Ichiro Suzuki the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star game history.

“This will be Charlie’s second straight year to try to beat that stupid American League jinx,” Phillies chairman Bill Giles said of the Philadelphia and NL skipper, Charlie Manuel. “Charlie, your job’s on the line, man.” The A.L. is led by Yankees' skipper Joe Girardi.

Tampa Bay lefty David Price will start Tuesday for the AL. Price is 12-4 with a 2.42 ERA.

The NL players believe it’s their turn to finally turn the page on this decade-old drought. Beating the AL will be a daunting task indeed. Big swings often decide the game. Still, with the likes of Albert Pujols and Howard on the NL side, it would look pretty even. Not according to oddsmakers though. Again, the N.L. is a +112 underdog according to Sportsbook.com. Perhaps that can serve as motivation above any other.

“Now with what’s at stake,” said NL coach Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants, “the National League needs to stop this.”
