    Moustakas swinging

    It’s a painfully slow day news-wise, so while we patiently wait for Game 6 of the NLCS between the Giants and Phillies to begin, I thought I’d use this opportunity to bring you up to speed on a position prospect we’ll probably be hearing a lot about next season. Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo…

    Javier Vazquez Yankees

    According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, Javier Vazquez is interested in pitching for a team on the East Coast, including the Nationals.

    Oct 23, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    Just a quick programming note: You probably know this already, but just in case you may have forgotten, last night’s win by the Rangers ensured that tonight’s Game 6 of the NLCS between the Giants and Phillies will start at 7:57 p.m. ET. If the ALCS would have went to seven games, Game 6 of…

    Giants’ postseason darling Cody Ross told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that he is still dealing with pain after being drilled in the right forearm by Joe Blanton in Wednesday’s Game 4 win over the Phillies.

  14. What’s next for the Yankees?

    Oct 23, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    It’s probably a little early for this sort of talk, but the futures of impending free agents Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera and manager Joe Girardi are sure to be a popular topic of conversation during the winter. The thing is, aside from the chance that Pettitte retires, they are all pretty much…

  15. Cliff Lee doesn’t care which team he faces in the World Series

    Cliff Lee

    Or so he tells Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, anyway: “I don’t care who we play,” Lee said. “They’re very capable of winning two more games there. If they do, yeah, I’d love to face them. But if it’s not them, I’d love to face the Giants, too. I’m not out for blood, or out…

    The Rangers have earned their first trip to the World Series. And they didn’t do it with mirrors, either. They defeated the team with the American League’s best record during the ALDS and last year’s World Series champions in the ALCS. Without question, they were the best hitting team in the American League during the…

    ALCS Yankees Rangers Baseball

    The Rangers just defeated the Yankees 6-1 in Game 6 of the ALCS, advancing to the World Series for the first time in franchise history.

    Bob Uecker

    Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Brewers’ broadcaster Bob Uecker underwent a second successful heart surgery today at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee.

  22. Cliff Lee dominates Yankees, Rangers grab 2-1 lead in ALCS

    Oct 19, 2010, 12:49 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Saturday’s Game 1 NLCS matchup between Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay was billed as one of the best postseason pitching matchups ever. It didn’t turn out that way, of course. That’s just not how this game works. And so, Cliff Lee could have given up four runs over six innings tonight and most rational baseball…

    UPDATE: Feliz shuts down the Yankees 1-2-3 in the bottom of the ninth, securing an 8-0 victory. Hey, Clay Rapada could have done that. The Rangers now hold a 2-1 lead in the series. Joe Girardi has indicated otherwise, but I would be very surprised to see A.J. Burnett starting for the Bombers tomorrow. Stay…
