    Let us gaze into the future, shall we?

  2. A look at the upcoming A-Rod-Yankees fight over the 660 home run milestone

    Apr 23, 2015, 11:03 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Including a fun idea about what A-Rod could do right now to make the Yankees’ case harder.

  3. Let’s stop this thing about the Royals being “the bad boys of baseball” before it starts

    But before we do, let us throw our lone Royals fan commenter a bone.

  4. Video: Juan Lagares made a fantastic catch last night

    Apr 23, 2015, 9:16 AM EDT

    Juan Lagares

    Playing shallow, ranging back, hauling it in. Makes it look easy when it very certainty is not.

  5. Contact and controversy in the ninth inning of last night’s Dodgers-Giants game

    Apr 23, 2015, 8:37 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 8.36.48 AM

    Ultimately the right (non)-call was made. But it was made by accident.

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

    Apr 23, 2015, 7:37 AM EDT

    Roberto Kelly

    Roberto Kelly is all like “Me? I didn’t do nothin’?” And Mattingly is all like “dude, really?” And Blanco is all like “[whistles innocently]”

  7. “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.

  8. 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.

  9. Bernie Williams to finally sign his retirement papers

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

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

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

  11. The wisdom of Fredi Gonzalez

    Apr 22, 2015, 9:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Washington Nationals

    No, really! Sincerely!

  12. Jose Bautista and the Orioles exchanged some words last night

    Apr 22, 2015, 9:05 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 8.59.19 AM

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

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. The Angels have a comeback plan for Josh Hamilton

    Apr 21, 2015, 10:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton
