    If you hate in-game interviews of managers, just wait for in-game interviews of players.

  3. Braves lefty Andrew McKirahan suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Nelson Cruz has eight homers on the young season. And a line that looks like something Barry Bonds put up over the course of four seasons.

    When Angels owner Arte Moreno was asked if Josh Hamilton would ever play for the Angels again, he said “I will not say that.” With this listing, perhaps Hamilton is saying so himself.

    A reminder that the Angels are singular in their treatment of Josh Hamilton

  13. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    John Lackey

    Dollar for dollar, this starter gives his team more value than just about anyone.
