Shane Victorino getting back to bunting

Wednesday, March 2, 2011, 3:04 PM
Shane Victorino did something we have seen him do just twice during the regular season since 2008: bunt for a base hit. He also attempted a second bunt, and almost beat it out for another single.

The Cliff Lee Kids: How do they stack up?

Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 1:35 PM
Over the last 15 months, 11 minor league prospects have switched organizations in trades for Cliff Lee (oh, OK -- and Mark Lowe and Ben Francisco).
