As Randal Grichuk and Stephen Piscotty separated for the offseason, they anticipated that their time as teammates was ending. The Cardinals' offseason priorities were evident, and among them was an intention to clear some outfield clutter.
Ever since hearing that those who write down their goals are 30 percent more likely to achieve them, Tommy Pham has been deliberate about transferring his intentions onto paper. He has no interest in keeping them a secret, either.
Dillon Maples was sitting at a Starbucks in Memphis on Aug. 31, reading about George Washington, when Cubs player development director Jaron Madison interrupted him. Triple-A Iowa's game against the Redbirds had been called because of the weather. An avid reader, Maples' plan was to hunker down in one of the coffee shop's comfortable chairs fo […]

The Pirates traded two franchise cornerstones over the long weekend, giving up Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen for young players and prospects. If their roster "retooling" takes them out of the postseason picture, Josh Harrison doesn't want to be a part of it.
