    Pittsburgh’s relievers have nicknamed the bullpen crew the “Shark Tank” because, as closer Jason Grilli explained to Steven Petrella of, they “look for the smell of blood and go in for the kill.” And to show just how committed they are to that nickname, Grilli and company brought an actual shark tank into the…

  2. Jered Weaver pitches well in his return from the disabled list

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Jered Weaver landed on the disabled list for seven weeks after fracturing his left elbow. But he’s all better now and last night showed he was healthy with a win over the Dodgers. Well, to the extent that a win over the Dodgers shows us a lot. In reality it was a mixed bag. The…

  3. Trevor Bauer gives the Indians a really bad season anthem

    Trevor Bauer

    Bad news for the Dodgers: Matt Kemp left during the seventh inning of last night’s Angels-Dodgers game with a mild hamstring strain. It was the right hamstring — last year he missed two months with a strain of the left — and after the game he said it didn’t feel as bad as last year’s injury. A…

  6. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…
