  1. “Baseball is dying . . . LITERALLY!” — Chris Rock

    Apr 22, 2015, 4:15 PM EDT

    Tombstone

    Yes, he actually said that. In a video that has both some good points and some not-so-good points.

  2. The early leaders in MLB’s “Franchise Four” thing have been announced

    Apr 22, 2015, 1:25 PM EDT

    Barry Bonds

    This man, per the fan vote anyway, is not one of the four Greatest Living Players. Lol.

  3. Bernie Williams to finally sign his retirement papers

    So, you can close the book on Bernie’s career now, right?

  4. Hunter Pence is unlikely to make it back by May 1

    He has yet to ramp up baseball activities to meet that target date.

  5. The wisdom of Fredi Gonzalez

    Apr 22, 2015, 9:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Washington Nationals

    No, really! Sincerely!

    This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it.

  7. Video: Ike Davis pitched last night. And he looked pretty darn good!

    Apr 22, 2015, 8:23 AM EDT

    Ike Davis

    Kept the ball down, induced grounders. He . . . made pitches!

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

    Apr 22, 2015, 6:50 AM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Runs in bunches and three nice nights from three former heroes who, it turns out, were only mostly dead.

  9. The Wally Backman-Miami Marlins intrigue continues

    Apr 21, 2015, 5:22 PM EDT

    The Marlins haven’t had a controversy or a do-over on major decisions in months. They’re overdue at this point, no?

  10. How does releasing the Reds’ lineup help the Reds?

    Apr 21, 2015, 4:10 PM EDT

    Snap

    Some men just want to watch the world burn.

  11. Why are reporters in the Reds’ clubhouse anyway?

    Apr 21, 2015, 2:55 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 2.54.34 PM

    One answer: because clubs and leagues like to pretend that they’re quasi-public entities who answer to the press. Even if they’re for-profit businesses.

  12. Bryan Price apologizes for his salty language. Not his disdain for the media.

    Apr 21, 2015, 11:28 AM EDT

    Bryan Price doesn’t fully grok what was so remarkable about his rant. And the Reds don’t seem to care.

  13. The Angels have a comeback plan for Josh Hamilton

    Apr 21, 2015, 10:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    But, like everything else having to do with their treatment of him, there’s a thread of cynicism to it.

  14. An interesting interview with Barry Bonds’ son Nicolai

    Apr 21, 2015, 9:45 AM EDT

    Barry Bonds

    A writer who once ripped Barry Bonds for 400 pages or so talked with Bonds’ son about the nature of celebrity and celebrity villains.

  15. Video: Jose Iglesias made a ridiculous play last night

    Apr 21, 2015, 9:15 AM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    Off-balance, running the other way, across his body, deep in the hole and he STILL got the speedy Brett Gardner.

  16. What Bryan Price’s rant was really all about

    Apr 21, 2015, 8:44 AM EDT

    Getty Bryan Price

    The F-bombs were hilarious, but the substance of Price’s rant was far more telling.

  17. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 21, 2015, 6:42 AM EDT

    Ralphie

    It was a foul night for Ohio baseball.

  18. Dodgertown lives

    Apr 20, 2015, 4:50 PM EDT

    Dodgertown

    It’s been a facility in flux since the Dodgers left in 2008, but it has a new life under new management.

  19. Braves pitcher Andrew McKirahan releases as statement regarding his PED suspension

    Apr 20, 2015, 1:15 PM EDT

    Andrew McKirahan

    And he actually owns up to taking stuff. None of that “I have no idea how that got in my system” rebop from him.

  20. I discussed the “minor league city downgrades” list on NPR over the weekend

    Apr 20, 2015, 12:30 PM EDT

    El Paso

    People from El Paso are still mad about that. Oh well.

  21. You don’t have to trust Alex Rodriguez. Nothing requires you to do that at all.

    Apr 20, 2015, 11:02 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    The greatest trick baseball columnists ever pulled was convincing the world that the way they frame a topic is the only way to approach the topic.
