Updated Top 10 fantasy prospects for 2015

Maikel Franco moves to No. 9 to No. 1 in Tommy Rancel's updated list of the top 10 fantasy baseball prospects for 2015 after a busy week of promotions, demotions and injuries.


Rogers: Tirade was wrong thing to do

Jesse Rogers disagrees with Bryan Price's decision to go on a public tirade: "Our job is to give out the information we receive, whether that's through the team or through sources, and we're supposed to relay that to the fans."


SportsCenter's bleeped out message

Taking a cue from Reds manager Bryan Price, some of the SportsCenter anchors delivered their own (expletive) message.


Former big prospects now in the bigs

With Addison Russell being called up to play 2B, all of the Cubs infielders are 25 or younger. No team has started an entire infield of players 25 or younger this early in the season since the '03 Tigers, who finished 43-119.


Reds manager's impressive pace

Bryan Price reportedly used the F-word 77 times in five-and-a-half minute rant about reporters revealing roster information. That average of 15 per minute is more than the famously foul-mouthed movie "The Wolf of Wall Street" which featured just over 3 per minute.

Cardinals call up Mitch Harris

When the RHP makes his debut, he'll be the first Naval Academy graduate to play in the majors since 1921. Nemo Gaines pitched in four games for the Senators that year. West Point alum Walt French is the only other graduate of a service academy to play in MLB.

That's a bit odd, since more people seemed bothered by the message -- about the media's role -- than Price's vulgarities.

His & Hers debates Bryan Price rant

Michael Smith applauded the variety of F-bombs, but added: "The problem I do have though, is with him standing by the content. If he thinks that it's the media's job to make his job easier, to help put the Reds in an advantageous position, then he needs to get a clue."


Breaking down positional changes

This season, four former All-Stars and an erstwhile AL Rookie of the Year (Wil Myers) are changing positions. They're doing it without a safety net -- for contending clubs on the biggest stage. How are they faring? Have a look

Mets pitchers: Don't walk this way

Mets starters have only given up five walks during their eight-game winning streak, a span of 51.1 innings pitched. They have allowed the lowest walk percentage in the league during that time.

A-Rod swimming in cash

Consider this: Alex Rodriguez is owed $61M dollars in base salary over the next 3 seasons, and can make an additional $30M in bonuses for reaching various milestones.


The White Sox's answer to Kris Bryant

Meet Carlos Rodon, Chicago’s other elite MLB prospect. He was called up to the majors on Monday and Michael Baumann writes that his slider is “Gimme Shelter” at 86 mph. Rodon is the Rolling Stones to Bryant's Beatles

Why Shonda Schilling runs

"Mom’s had cancer. Dad’s had cancer. Our DNA sucks," the Schillings' 12-year-old son told his parents. The last three years have been 'hell' for the Schillings, but even still, Shonda laced up her shoes to run the Boston Marathon on Monday. And she nailed it
