    Apr 3, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Former Major League baseball player Lenny Dykstra appears in Los Angeles Superior Court for an arraignment in San Fernando, California

    On one side, a known liar. On the other side, a prison system which has a deplorable track record when it comes to violence against prisoners.

  5. The Derek Jeter farewell gifts start out with boots and a hat

    Apr 3, 2014, 8:55 AM EDT

    Jeter gifts

    Okay, well, uh… candlesticks always make a nice gift, and uh, maybe you could find out where he’s registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware.

  6. Bud Black’s attempted replay challenge deemed “untimely” — which is kind of absurd

    Apr 3, 2014, 8:26 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-04-03 at 8.25.13 AM

    The replay rule has some perverse incentives when it comes to determining whether or not a challenge is “timely”

  7. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jose Bautista

    The Blue Jays 2013 plan worked out pretty well for their second game in 2014. And Jonathan Papelbon shows us the meaning of accountability. In his own special way.

  9. Ian Kinsler homers, hits a walkoff single for the Tigers

    Apr 2, 2014, 5:06 PM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    But the biggest problem for the Royals wasn’t Ian Kinsler. It was Ned Yost’s bullpen management.

    ‘O, brave new world that has such irrationality in’t!

  12. Cal Ripken would rather have Derek Jeter’s career than his own

    Apr 2, 2014, 1:07 PM EDT

    Cal Ripken

    At first blush it’s odd to hear someone like Ripken say that. But then you think about it a bit harder and say “um, yeah, me too!”

  13. There were some awesome signs being held up by fans last night

    Apr 2, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT


    Being able to say anything you want is the beauty of America. Being able to say it stupidly is a beauty of equal worth.

  14. C.J. Wilson apparently did not want to intentionally walk Robinson Cano last night

    Apr 2, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 11.17.11 AM

    Pitching to Robinson Cano with men in scoring position vs. issuing an intentional walk. WHO YA GOT?!

  15. The Marlins obviously weren’t prepared for a sellout on Opening Day

    The customer isn’t always right, but you should probably at least pretend to listen and empathize with their complaints.

  16. Mark Teixeira says his wrist will “never be the same”

    Apr 2, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    After a 2 for 3 night we know Teixeira can still hit. The question is how hard he can hit.

    Apr 2, 2014, 9:37 AM EDT

    The Rays gotta lock ‘em up young to keep ‘em long. They just locked one up young.

  18. Ex-Astros pitcher Brandon Backe says police brutality ended his career

    Apr 2, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Brandon Backe

    The Galveston, Texas police could be paying a pretty hefty judgment if they lose this case.

  19. We all saw this coming with the replay challenge system

    Apr 2, 2014, 8:51 AM EDT


    Baseball sold the replay challenge system on its “uniqueness and charm.” What happened in last night’s Giants-Diamondbacks game was certainly unique, but not at all charming.

  20. The Padres’ ball girls flash some serious leather

    Apr 2, 2014, 8:30 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 5.41.06 AM

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

    Apr 2, 2014, 5:22 AM EDT

    Bochy replay

    Major League Baseball wanted a challenge system for replay. Everyone except Major League Baseball said a challenge system would be flawed and would lead to problems. The Giants-Dbacks game last night showed us exactly what those problems are.

  22. Proposing to your partner on the scoreboard: more popular than I imagined

    Apr 1, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

    Apr 1, 2014, 4:30 PM EDT
