    Yesterday when the Reds announced that Johnny Cueto has been diagnosed with a strained right oblique muscle they initially left open the possibility that he could start today’s Game 4 against the Giants. That always seemed incredibly unlikely and sure enough just hours later manager Dusty Baker officially ruled out Cueto for the start. However,…

    This afternoon the Rangers held their season-ending press conference with reporters and among the interesting tidbits passed along by T.R.

    harrelson and stone

    When the Diamondbacks officially fired their television announcing duo of Daron Sutton and Mark Grace there was speculation that they might try to hire Steve Stone away from the White Sox and then Stone fanned the flames a bit by playing sort of coy about his status beyond this season. That changed today, as Stone…

    Oct 9, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    super troopers

    Remember that story yesterday about how the Maryland state troopers assigned to the Yankees dugout at Camden Yards ruffled some feathers by asking Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher for autographs in the middle of the ninth inning?

  13. Best hitters in playoff history: Ruth, Gehrig and … Beltran?

    Oct 9, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    The perception of Carlos Beltran‘s performance in the playoffs is largely built around his once taking an Adam Wainwright curveball for an NLCS-ending called third strike. That narrative, like many narratives, couldn’t be further from the truth. After homering twice last night Beltran has now gone deep 13 times in 25 career playoff games while…

  14. Jaime Garcia’s shoulder injury has teammates “incensed” and team “skeptical”

    Oct 9, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Jaime Garcia was pulled from his Game 2 start after just two innings and the Cardinals have decided to remove him from the playoff roster after the left-hander complained of shoulder problems.

    Last season Cory Wade had a 30/8 K/BB ratio and allowed five homers in 39 innings for the Yankees. This season Wade had a 38/8 K/BB ratio and allowed eight homers in 39 innings for the Yankees.

    Oct 8, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT


    Note: I do a weekly podcast that’s mostly about the Minnesota Twins, but also about baseball in general and other random topics that HBT readers may find amusing.

    terry francona indians

    I just watched the press conference introducing Terry Francona as the Indians’ new manager and there were a few interesting tidbits. • Francona signed a four-year contract that runs through 2016 and said negotiations were very easy, which is noteworthy because some initial speculation wondered if he might be out of the Indians’ price range.…
