    The Yankees dim playoff hopes get dimmer as their best hitter looks to be on the shelf for a while.

    Great. There goes my shot to manage the Astros.

  3. The Mets are considering bringing in the fences at Citi Field once again

    Sep 10, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Apple Citi Field

    Specifically: bringing in the walls in right-center.

  4. Paul Auster expands on his three-ball-walk, foul-ball-strikeout plan to speed up baseball

    Sep 10, 2014, 9:44 AM EDT

    Paul Auster

    And basically says that no one cares about records anymore. Which is the sort of thing a lot of 60-somethings like to say.

  5. The Royals ran themselves out of an inning and back into a tie for first place

    An out on the basepaths killed a Royals would-be rally.

  6. Debunking the “Mets have it in for Wally Backman” nonsense

    Sep 10, 2014, 8:55 AM EDT

    Wally Backman, Tim Teufel

    Wally Backman has been an important part of the Mets organization. Which is a bit of a problem for the people who like to sell the idea that the Mets are blackballing him.

  7. One day in, the new “clarification” on the collision rule seems to have already been messed up

    We’re still, apparently, in The Land of Murky when it comes to plays at the plate.

    Yusmeiro Petit was a study in efficiency as the Giants solidified their hold on the top wild card slot in the National League and pulled to within two and a half of the Dodgers.

  9. Ryan Zimmerman takes batting practice

    Sep 9, 2014, 5:31 PM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Washington Nationals

    And I somehow get emotional about this.

  10. Masahiro Tanaka throws another simulated game

    Sep 9, 2014, 3:56 PM EDT

    He’s not yet up to the same number of simulated games as real games this year, but it’s getting close.

  11. Presented without comment: A Chief Wahoo kippah

    Sep 9, 2014, 3:27 PM EDT

    WTF face

    On the bright side, they may be running out of things to put a logo on at the MLB offices.

  12. 1,750 fans are hurt by foul balls each year

    Sep 9, 2014, 2:26 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-09-09 at 2.25.29 PM

    That’s way more than I expected.

    It’s not one thing with the Oakland Athletics’ ongoing collapse: it’s everything.

  14. This is not a repeat: don’t expect the Mets to spend big this offseason

    Sep 9, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Sandy Alderson

    Sandy Alderson preaches prudence and patience. A lot of Mets fans are probably getting tired of this.

  15. The Atlantic League is engaging in an interesting experiment to pick up the pace of games

    Sep 9, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT

    Alarm Clock

    The independent leagues can be gimmicky. But they also can be laboratories.

  16. Curt Schilling will return to TV on Thursday

    Sep 9, 2014, 11:03 AM EDT

    Curt Schilling

    Good to see the future Hall-of-Famer on the mend.

  17. Japanese player does something no one has done since Babe Ruth

    Sep 9, 2014, 10:31 AM EDT

    There aren’t many two-way players anymore. There’s a pretty good one in Japan.

  18. MLB and the MLBPA may meet to talk about a domestic violence policy this offseason

    Sep 9, 2014, 9:44 AM EDT

    Rob Manfred AP

    Maybe they’re reacting now. But better to react here than to react the next time a ballplayer commits and act of violence.

  19. Baseball is dying? Nonsense: The Case for Baseball’s Vitality

    Sep 9, 2014, 7:57 AM EDT

    Jack Dempsey -- Associated Press

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

    Sep 9, 2014, 6:18 AM EDT

  21. Braves minor leaguer suspended for amphetamines

    Sep 8, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

    Police Blotter

    Looks like he picked the wrong week to — [16 ton weight falls on Craig's head]

  22. Now is the time for Major League Baseball to enact a domestic violence policy

    Sep 8, 2014, 3:16 PM EDT

    FILE: Seattle Designates Milton Bradley For Assignment

    And, for that matter, policies regarding all manner of off-the-field conduct. Partially because it’s simply good leadership. But mostly because it’s the right thing to do.

  23. The 2015 schedule is out. We could have another November World Series.
