Why in the world is Greg Holland still unsigned?

Somehow, closer Greg Holland remains without a team. Of course, one reason why is that teams are cheap. But this is just ridiculous. Last season — for the Colorado Rockies, no less — Holland would save 41 ballgames while pitching to a 3.61 ERA, 3.73 FIP and 3.42 DRA. Add in a 29.8 percent strikeout rate (11.1 percent walk rate) and there’s plenty to like there. Of course, there’s also the fact that he would miss all of 2016 while recovering from injuries. And yet, he’s still a free agent. Not only that, but he’s the last big-name free agent out there. And it makes no sense. But according to… Read More

Letitia Wright Is Pitching Wakandan Technology to Tom Holland: “Tell Your People to Call My People”

We all knew Princess Shuri was a genius inventor, but it turns out she’s also a hell of an entrepreneur. Over on Twitter, actress Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri in Black Panther, has been making her sales pitch for Wakandan technology to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and it’s making me grin. As a former Girl Scout who learned her salesmanship from the most ruthless marketing machine in the Western world, I had to shout out this glorious Twitter exchange. Always be closing. Wright started out the sales pitch right, complimenting her potential customer’s taste. She tweeted at Holland to compliment him on his new suit from the Infinity War trailer. Holland… Read More

MLB free agency: Rangers have ‘considered’ Greg Holland

The Rangers have “considered” the possibility of signing free-agent reliever Greg Holland, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. The Rangers have yet to formally name a closer in their bullpen, which blew 21 of 50 save opportunities last season. The Rangers currently have Alex Claudio, Tim Lincecum, Matt Bush, Keone Kela, Jake Diekman, Jose Leclerc, Tony Barnette, Chris Martin and Ricardo Rodriguez, with Claudio and Lincecum as the two frontrunners for the ninth-inning job. Claudio saved 11 games in 15 opportunities last year. Lincecum, a 2008 NL Cy Young winner with the Giants as a starter, has not pitched since 2016 and has not been a closer since his… Read More

Should fantasy players panic about Greg Holland, Eric Hosmer, other unsigned free agents?

How are you handling unsigned free agents in fantasy baseball, which fantasy-relevant player yet to sign worries you most? Tristan H. Cockcroft: The Hot Stove season is officially upon us. Wait, what, it’s mid-February?! We are now 18 days away from the first of the League of Alternative Baseball Reality (LABR) "only"-league drafts, and the realization has dawned upon all of us: We’re highly likely to commence those drafts, in which free agents are eligible but must be instantly released to the league free-agent pool if they sign in the other league, with at least one fantasy-relevant — or let’s say "unquestionably roster-worthy in fantasy" — player still seeking employment… Read More

(Photo, Curling Canada/Michael Burns) SHAWINIGAN, Que. — It’s the second time around, but that didn’t make it any less sweet for Kristin Clarke and Karlee Burgess. In fact, it may have made it even sweeter that the vice-skip and second for Nova Scotia could share the experience of winning the women’s gold medal at the 2018 New Holland Canadian Junior Curling Championships with a pair of first-timers — skip Kaitlyn Jones and lead Lindsey Burgess (Karlee’s cousin). The Halifax team gave Nova Scotia its second gold medal in three years… Read More
