  1. The Tigers claimed Chad Qualls on revocable waivers

    They have until tomorrow to make a trade with the Astros

  2. A.J. Burnett: maybe I won’t retire after this season after all

    Aug 26, 2014, 8:55 AM EDT

    A.J. Burnett

    It’s probably not best to make plans for the future after a bad day at the office.

  3. Giancarlo Stanton on the Marlins success: “Five months doesn’t change five years”

    Aug 26, 2014, 8:23 AM EDT

    If you think the Marlins recent winning ways have convinced Giancarlo Stanton to sign an extension, think again.

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

    It was Giancarlo Stanton vs. Mike Trout in Anaheim last night. Advantage: Stanton.

  5. Two Yankees minor leaguers suspended for PEDs

    Aug 25, 2014, 5:17 PM EDT

    Police Blotter

    Even today’s drug busts are boring. Man, what’s with today?

  6. Video: Watch KBO player Choi Joo-hwan face plant into home

    Aug 25, 2014, 4:01 PM EDT

    The world of baseball seems to be asleep this afternoon. So let’s see a base runner eat dirt!

  7. Philly Inquirer columnist to complaining Phillies: “Shut up and play. Be quiet and pitch.”

    Aug 25, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT

    No one is having fun in Philly this year. Maybe complaining about it to the media isn’t helping.

  8. HBT Daily: The Yankees won’t die

    Aug 25, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT

    Brian McCann

    But they’re not exactly livin’ either. They’re just sort of existing, with occasional good results.

  9. Robinson Cano to play today

    Aug 25, 2014, 12:31 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano AP

    After leaving yesterday’s game early with a bout of the flu, the M’s second baseman will likely be in action this evening.

  10. Paul Auster has a radical idea to speed up games

    Aug 25, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT

    Paul Auster

    But, really, it’s probably better than a lot of other ideas we’ll hear.

  11. The Rangers sign J.R. Towles from independent ball

    Aug 25, 2014, 11:02 AM EDT

    When a 30 year-old is sent to the minors, it’s usually bad. But when he’s being sent there from independent ball, that’s good.

  12. Bryce Harper uses a lot of different guys’ bats. Here’s why.

    Aug 25, 2014, 10:33 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper AP

    Harper just test-drives bats. Which makes a lot of sense, actually.

  13. Despite waiver claim, an A’s-Rays trade for Yunel Escobar unlikely

    Aug 25, 2014, 9:49 AM EDT

    The teams matchup on paper. But baseball isn’t played on paper. If it was, anyone could do it.

  14. John Jaso is placed on the concussion disabled list

    Aug 25, 2014, 9:28 AM EDT

    john jaso getty

    Jaso missed the playoffs last year due to a severe concussion. He’s out with brain trauma once again.

  15. Lucas Duda sure is making the Mets look smart

    Aug 25, 2014, 9:09 AM EDT

    Lucas Duda

    The Mets had to make a choice. Twenty-six homers and an OPS of .862 later, and that choice looks like the right one.

  16. John Gibbons rips Jose Bautista for getting ejected in yesterday’s game

    Aug 25, 2014, 8:23 AM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Jose Bautista’s spot in the order — and in the field — proved critical in yesterday’s loss.

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

    Aug 25, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT

    Brian McCann

    The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

  18. Albuquerque Isotopes to give away Joc Pederson’s 1994 Buick Century

    Aug 22, 2014, 3:36 PM EDT

    Buick Century

    One window doesn’t work and there is no air conditioning. It has 166,000 miles on it. Which, actually, isn’t that bad. Hmmm . . .

  19. HBT Daily: it’s showdown time for the Angels and A’s

    Aug 22, 2014, 2:57 PM EDT

    Seven games in ten days for the AL West leaders

  20. The Cubs grounds crew was short staffed because the Cubs were trying to avoid Obamacare

    Aug 22, 2014, 12:49 PM EDT

    cubs logo

    This has been such a fun story so far. So why NOT throw politics into it?

  21. Adam Loewen is a pitcher again

    Aug 22, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT

    New York Mets Photo Day

    Can he make it to the bigs on a new path for a third time?

  22. Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to sign with the Red Sox for $72 million

    Aug 22, 2014, 11:01 AM EDT

    Rusney Castillo Getty

    The Red Sox paid a lot of money to get this guy. Expect him in the Sox’ outfield early next season.

  23. An important note on nostalgia

    Aug 22, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    yaz

    It’s cool to love what you loved when you were 20. It’s not cool to claim that what you loved when you were 20 is the only thing worth loving.

  24. Even if he’s reinstated, does Pete Rose make the Hall of Fame?

    Aug 22, 2014, 9:27 AM EDT

    I think he’d have a pretty tough sled, actually.
