    Indians celebration

    The Tribe walks off against Texas, MadBum was dominant and V-Mart goes yard again. Note: if you were not a baseball fan, you would have no idea what any of the stuff in the previous sentence meant. It’s just barely English, yet we all get it. Cool, huh?

  6. Gammons: the Pirates may have made an offer for David Price that was “greater in terms of talent”

    Aug 1, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

    Aug 1, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

    Jordan Schafer

    Perhaps he and Uggla can join up to fight crime someplace?

  10. Dirk Hayhurst’s story of sexual abuse and debauchery in the minors has caused some blowback

    Aug 1, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    Dirk Hayhurst

    Many good points have been made. And Hayhurst himself has weighed in with a response.

    He’s probably the fifth starter on this Tigers team at the moment. So why not?

  12. Allen Craig found out he was traded by a TV report; Joe Kelly learned it on Twitter*

    Some pitching heading Miami’s way.

  17. The Yankees acquire Martin Prado from the Diamondbacks

    Jul 31, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Martin Prado

    A super sub at heart who can and will be used at multiple positions by the Yankees.

  18. ACES GALORE: The Rays trade David Price to the Tigers

    Jul 31, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT
