Miguel Cabrera' eight-year, $248 million contract extension from the Detroit Tigers isn't as bad as critics say. Demand for Tigers tickets is already up in 2014 -- and Cabrera's contract may have had a positive effect on demand. [Read more]

2014 Opening Day power rankings

March 29, 2014
With Spring Training now in the past, we've got a clear picture of the state of each team's roster. Here's a look at a special edition of power rankings -- as teach team is paired up with a song from an artist on tour in 2014 that best represents that team on Opening Day. [Read more]

With Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Shelby Miller and Lance Lynn locked into St. Louis' rotation, and Jaime Garcia once again ailing with a shoulder injury, the fifth and final spot in the Cardinals' rotation is up for grabs. Joe Kelly and Carlos Martinez are vying for the spot, but through four spring starts, it's clear that "Baby Pedro" Martinez has out-pitched Kelly -- and it will be a complete sham to the idea of an open competition if Kelly earns the nod.

Baseball's New World

March 12, 2014
Over the past decade, there has been a major shift in baseball’s financial paradigm – and perhaps no team illustrates that better currently than the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis recently signed Matt Carpenter to a six-year contract, worth $52 million. The contract buys out Carpenter’s first two years of free agency, ensuring that the first eight years of Carpenter’s career are in St. Louis. [Read more]

The 109th edition of the World Series kicks of later tonight at Fenway Park when the Boston Red Sox host the St. Louis Cardinals. The Series pits two of baseball's most historic franchises from baseball cities and matches up the teams tied for the best record during the regular season, 97-65. It is first time since 1999 that the two teams with the best records have met in the Series, and this marks just the third time in history ('49 and '58) that the World Series teams have had the same record....

2013 AL Central Preview

March 28, 2013
With 2013 Opening Day just days away, Live Toast is happy to present our sixth and final 2013 division preview, the AL Central, home of the defending league champion Detroit Tigers. The Tigers swept the Yankees in the ALCS en route to their own World Series sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants. Detroit has to be the favorites to repeat as division champs, if not league champs as well. You can easily make the argument they have the best hitter and the best pitcher in the game. But they ...

2013 NL West Preview

March 26, 2013
The fifth of our 2013 MLB season previews looks at the NL West, home of the defending champion San Francisco Giants. While the Dodgers dominated the division in the late 2000's the San Francisco Giants have been able to win two of the last three World Series titles on the back of incredible pitching and some timely hitting. Returning much the same team as last season, the champs have to be the favorites, although they will likely face a much tougher division in 2013. That is largely due to the L... [Read more]

2013 AL East Preview

March 15, 2013
In the third installment of Live Toast's 2013 MLB Preview we look at the AL East. We've already looked at the NL East and the AL West, so be sure to check them out. The AL East looks to easily be the most competitive division in MLB. Some Vegas polls show every team winning more than 80 games, which means all five teams could have a winning percentage higher than .500. For this division this year, it looks like pre-season predictions will be all but worthless, and any of these teams could end u... [Read more]
