Peter Gammons: Chase Utley, Mattingly’s roster decisions, the Mets, and more

Understand, the return of Chase Utley was not a luxury item, a Rodeo Drive trinket. It was, in many ways, Farhan Zaidi and Andrew Friedman’s exercise in baseball democracy. It was clearly peer driven, respect from teammates, young and old, that even with the acquisition of Logan Forsythe—which was universally applauded by the Dodger players—the […]

Peter Gammons: The Padres pillar in San Diego grows stronger than ever

Peter Gammons: Ten thoughts when not slipping on black ice

1). On January 23, somewhere between 12 and 20 teams will attend an indoor showcase outside Boston to watch Craig Breslow throw.

It […]

Peter Gammons: Postseason roundup, bullpen is key

We have seen the Royals to the seventh game of consecutive world series without a 15 game winner, but with a bullpen structured, built on power, and craftily managed. We look out at the next strata of series that will take us into November and see the Dodgers are 29th in the majors in starters’ […]

Peter Gammons: Managing playoff pitching staffs

It may be that we have no idea how the World Series can end before the election if we end up with two- and three-way ties when the regular season ends and the play-ins are supposed to begin, but, the six division champions thought to have been determined, the attention has now begun to focus […]
