Yesterday, Fangraphs completed its always interesting and often controversial organizational rankings list. It is not a list of how well these teams will do in the coming season, but rather, an examination of overall organizational strength. This year, the ranking methodology was tweaked slightly, with future talent, present talent, financial resources, and baseball operations ranked [...]
This is the April Fool’s post I wrote, which was scrapped when the Pettitte idea came up. As a bonus, here is the one I did last year on Cablevision dropping YES before the season, as well as the one from two seasons ago about the Red Sox acquiring Hanley Ramirez.

This is probably the toughest post I’ve ever had to write in my blogging career, and it makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it. MLBTR has the unfortunate news:
“Sources close to Andy Pettitte say the big lefthander started working out at Texas’ spring training complex in Surprise, Arizona, this [...]
