Tanaka solid in return to Yankees
Masahiro Tanaka made his return to the New York Yankees on Sunday. He allowed one earned run on five hits in 5.1 innings. Surprisingly, manager Joe Girardi allowed Tanaka to throw 70 pitches, 48 of which were for strikes. So, it is so far so good for the rookie right-hander who is coming off attempting […] Tanaka solid in return to Yankees -

Padres to keep manager Bud Black, after firing GM Josh Byrnes
When the San Diego Padres fired their general manager Josh Byrnes and hired the now former assistant general manager of the Texas Rangers A.J. Preller to replace him, there was speculation that manager Bud Black‘s job with the team might also be in jeopardy. According to a report Sunday by MLB.com’s Barry M. Bloom, Barry […] Padres to keep manager Bud Bl...

Stroman drops appeal, suspension reduced to 5 games
Marcus Stroman began serving what was once a six game suspension Sunday, for throwing at the head of Baltimore Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph on Monday. Stroman had been planning to appeal and was able to make his most recent start on Saturday against the Yankees in which he struck out seven and allowed just two […] Stroman drops appeal, suspension reduced to 5 games ...

Jeter unties himself from A-Rod on the all-time runs scored list
After scoring the 1,920th run in his storied career in the third inning in Saturday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Derek Jeter took sole possession of ninth place all-time on the runs scored list. Once he crossed the home plate for almost 2,000th time in his big league career he scored one more run […] Jeter unties himself from A-Rod on the all-time r...

Please Kansas City, Be Royal
Kansas City wants the Royals in the postseason, I want the Royals in the postseason and I think most of America (excluding Detroit, Seattle, Oakland and maybe Cleveland) want the Royals in the postseason. So why are they making it so hard on us? After their second straight defeat to Detroit yesterday, the Royals now […] Please Kansas City, Be Royal -

Oakland A’s cannot beat Jerome Williams
When a player is traded, he may get pumped up facing his former team.  He also might play the same team in a much shorter span than usual based on his new team’s schedule.  For pitcher Jerome Williams, no matter what team he was playing for this year, he wound up pitching against the Oakland […] Oakland A’s cannot beat Jerome Williams -

Who are the real Boston Red Sox?
The Boston Red Sox are the defending World Series champions, yet they haven’t been relevant in any post season talks all year.  The last time they were in first place was three games into the season when they were 2-1 on April 3.  It has been all down hill from there, as Boston is likely […] Who are the real Boston Red Sox? - Call to the...

What do Howie Kendrick and Christian Yelich have in common?
This should be common sense, but I’ll reiterate it just in case: ground balls are less likely to result in hits than fly balls or line drives. In fact, Fangraphs calculates line drives produce 1.26 runs per out, whereas fly balls produce 0.13 runs per out and ground balls 0.05 runs per out. Now, it is […] What do Howie Kendrick and Christian Yelich have in common? -

Hall of Famer Willie McCovey hospitalized

Big Papi breaks Ted William’s Red Sox record for most 30/100 seasons
At least the Red Sox fans are getting a little excitement nearing the end of a season in which their team won’t be going to the postseason and it was provided for them by none other than Big Papi. David Ortiz already had 30 home runs going into Friday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, he […] Big Papi breaks Ted William’s Red Sox record for...

Kershaw has an “off-day” but the Dodgers offense helps lead the lefty to win number 20
It wasn’t Clayton Kershaw‘s best performance of the year but he still got his 20th win of the season with a a lot of help from the Los Angeles Dodgers’ offense. The offense knocked out Chicago Cubs’ pitcher Edwin Jackson before he could finish the first inning. Jackson pitch two thirds of the first inning […] Kershaw has an “off-...

Giancarlo Stanton injury update: “I was really fortunate”
It’s been a week since Giancarlo Stanton took an 88 mph Mike Fiers fastball to the jaw.  The National League MVP candidate spoke out  for the first time since his accident Thursday night. “The swelling is way down,” says Stanton. “Much better than I envisioned.  Just got to get the grill fixed and go from […] Giancarlo Stanton injury update: ...

6 signs that Jeter’s farewell tour may have taken on a life of its own (my tribute to the Captain)
Well, he was wrong. Derek Jeter, it appears, had hoped that by announcing his retirement back in February prior to the start of the season would allow people to focus on the game a little more than just speculating about what he might do come October. The announcement may have prevented the speculation but it […] 6 signs that Jeter’s farewell tour may have taken on a life of its own (my tribute t...

Could Josh Hamilton miss the postseason?
The Los Angeles Angels have been without outfielder Josh Hamilton for most of the month. Hamilton missed 11 straight games with an injury that began as shoulder stiffness and then traveled into parts of his neck and back. It appeared the injury was only getting worse and manager Mike Scioscia even expressed his worry publicly about […] Could Josh Hamilton miss the postseason? -
