  1. Brook Jacoby and umpire Doug Eddings were in a “loud, obscenity-laced, nose-to-nose exchange”

    May 6, 2015, 9:01 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Toronto Blue Jays

    A new report on the incident suggests that the umpire was just as much an aggressor as Jacoby was.

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

    May 6, 2015, 7:04 AM EDT

    Carlos Perez

    This is easily the most photo and video-heavy ATH of all time. Mostly because pitchers did things with bats and teams wore throwbacks last night.

  3. Alex Cobb may have a torn elbow ligament

    May 5, 2015, 1:30 PM EDT

    It’s just “informed speculation” at the moment. But the speculator tends to be pretty well-informed.

  4. Four men in a hot tub, Johnny Damon’s naked pull-ups and Curt Leskanic’s naked monkey walk

    May 5, 2015, 12:30 PM EDT

    Red Sox

    Pedro Martinez says his Red Sox teams led the league in hugs, handshakes and bad hair. Sounds like they led the league in being buck naked too.

  5. The Brewers may deal, but they aren’t going to deal Jonathan Lucroy

    May 5, 2015, 11:32 AM EDT

    Jonathan Lucroy Getty

    The Brewers’ catcher is on a team-friendly deal and is viewed as a cornerstone of the franchise.

  6. Joc Pederson’s last five hits have been homers

    May 5, 2015, 9:41 AM EDT

    Joc Pederson

    He’s also struck out ten times over that span, so he’s becoming Dave Kingman I guess.

  7. Part of the Wrigley Field bleachers will reopen next week

    With an interesting twist above the left field wall

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

    May 5, 2015, 7:18 AM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur

    An old friend returns to the site of his greatest triumphs.

  9. Nelson Cruz, Adrian Gonzalez named Players of the Month

    May 4, 2015, 5:11 PM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    The pitchers and rookies of the month were also named.

  10. Video: Debating Pete Rose’s possible reinstatement

    May 4, 2015, 4:17 PM EDT

    Are we now to the “when,” rather than the “if” portion of the Rose reinstatement debate?

  11. Did Yadier Molina forget how to frame pitches?

    May 4, 2015, 2:40 PM EDT

    And can we determine that in 21 games?

  12. Did the Brewers follow the “Selig Rule” in hiring Craig Counsell?

    May 4, 2015, 12:25 PM EDT

    The Selig rule requires that requires that every club consider minority candidates for manager positions. There really wasn’t a search for Ron Roenicke’s replacement in Milwaukee.

  13. Craig Counsell gets a three-year deal to manage the Brewers

    May 4, 2015, 11:29 AM EDT

    Craig Counsell

    Milwaukee now has the guy who had easily the best batting stance of any current manager.

  14. Quote of the Day: A-Rod isn’t gonna talk about the $6 million home run bonus

    May 4, 2015, 10:30 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    He says “it’s family business” and that “the old A-Rod is gone.”

  15. Jameis Winston’s contract precludes him from playing baseball

    May 4, 2015, 9:49 AM EDT

    This is the shortest post in the history of HBT.

  16. So, apparently it’s time to start suspecting A-Rod of taking PEDs again

    May 4, 2015, 9:10 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    And noting how the Yankees can and do sell everything that isn’t nailed down but somehow can’t figure out how to market home run number 660.

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

    May 4, 2015, 7:24 AM EDT

    Evan Gattis

    Some late-inning heroics. Extra-innings heroics, actually. Like baseball is some kind of gosh darned after hours club or something.

  18. Quote of the Day: Terry Francona is anti-moping

    May 1, 2015, 5:00 PM EDT

    Terry Francona

    The Indians are stinkin’ up the joint right now, but don’t expect them to be all hangdog about it.

  19. Rob Manfred is pro-status quo on the DH

    May 1, 2015, 3:45 PM EDT

    Rob Manfred AP

    Which is not surprising, as there is no percentage in supporting any kind of radical change unless there’s a real percentage in it.

  20. Homer Bailey to have Tommy John surgery

    May 1, 2015, 2:26 PM EDT
