    They look like the best team in the game right now.

    I suppose all the heartfelt tributes were already used up.

  3. Once again, a third party will foot the bill for late night Metro service for Nationals playoff games

    Sep 29, 2014, 12:05 PM EDT

    Metro Map

    American University steps up to pay for something that, in a just world, the owners of the Washington Nationals should pay. But good for the Lerners for getting out of it once again.

  4. Ichiro says he still wants to play, but alludes to some problems with the Yankees

    Sep 29, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    It’s not the end of the line for Ichiro, apparently. But it may be in New York.

  5. The Cardinals made a point to stay out of the Diamondbacks’ pool yesterday

    Sep 29, 2014, 10:41 AM EDT


    When you follow THE CARDINAL WAY, you do not celebrate the way heathens like the Dodgers do.

  6. Previewing the 2014 Playoffs

    Sep 29, 2014, 8:59 AM EDT


    Let’s meet our ten playoff teams and assess their strengths, weaknesses and overall outlook.

  7. Video: Tom Wilhelmsen dances gloriously

    Making an awful song serve something so wonderful is where the magic lies herein.

  8. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 29, 2014, 6:47 AM EDT

    Tigers celebrate

    All good things must come to an end.

  9. Buddy Carlyle had a really good year. And a really weird career.

    Sep 26, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    Buddy Carlyle

    And it could be over as of Sunday. Now, let us consider Buddy Carlyle.

  10. Charlie Morton may need hernia surgery

    He pitched through pain all year, but he can’t do it anymore.

  11. Derek Jeter wore two uniforms last night

    Jeter hat tip

    Great Moments in the Memorabilia Industry

  12. The Brewers are considering moving Ryan Braun to first base

    Sep 26, 2014, 10:35 AM EDT

    It makes sense given their roster. But can Braun’s bat rebound enough to justify him playing first base?

  13. Rusney Castillo hit his first career homer last night

    Sep 26, 2014, 9:46 AM EDT

    Rusney Castillo

    It’s been a crappy year for the Red Sox, but it ends with at least a bit of a glimpse of what the future holds.

  14. Travis d’Arnaud’s problem: his elbow

    Sep 26, 2014, 9:16 AM EDT

    He’ll be examined by team doctors today.

  15. Hunter Pence dropped a bunch of F-bombs in his postgame speech. Good.

    Sep 26, 2014, 8:23 AM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    If you don’t like Hunter Pence, regardless of who you root for, I really have no use for you.

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

    Sep 26, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 11.24.38 PM

    If someone submitted this script to Screenwriting 101, it’d be rejected as way too on-the-nose. But this ain’t Screenwriting 101. This is baseball. And that kind of stuff just sort of happens in baseball.

  17. Derek Jeter has the most popular player jersey since the All-Star break

    Sep 25, 2014, 4:30 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    The old man tops the list, but a lot of young stars are right on his heels.

  18. The Brewers are eliminated from postseason contention

    Sep 25, 2014, 4:00 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 3.56.15 PM

    They spent five months in first place. Now they’ll be home for October.

  19. The Astros will interview Phil Nevin for their open managerial gig

    Sep 25, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    The same Phil Nevin who, in 1992, was drafted ahead of Derek Jeter. I mean, that’s relevant here, right?

  20. HBT Daily: Jeter’s farewell. And Jeter swag. And remembering 1995

    Sep 25, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    HBT Daily Logo

    Watch as Jenna notes how friggin’ old I am. And also look at the Derek Jeter tribute cap someone sent me that looks like Yankee Stadium threw up on it.

  21. The Diamondbacks have reached an agreement with Dave Stewart

    Sep 25, 2014, 2:30 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 2.21.43 PM

    To be their GM. Not to pitch. Although he’ll be an improvement in both roles.

  22. “Derek Jeter saved my family”

    Sep 25, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

    derek jeter yankees getty

    This is not a joke post. This is very serious, in fact.

  23. Apparently, baseball will start dying once Derek Jeter retires

    Sep 25, 2014, 12:31 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    I’d like to think we’ll be able to carry on. But I don’t know if we can. Dammit, I JUST DO NOT KNOW.
