  1. The buck stops… well, over there somewhere

    Sep 10, 2009, 4:17 PM EDT

    Mark Whicker told Poynter Online that it’s the “speed and the enormity of the Internet” that forced him to apologize for a column noting sports topics that developed during the 18 years in which Jaycee Dugard was being held captive and raped. While the piece truly wasn’t intended to harm, Whicker’s misguided effort landed him…

  2. Bloggers shed light on Valverde age controversy

    Sep 9, 2009, 4:52 PM EDT

    Sparked by some nice work from MLB Trade Rumors and MVN’s Lisa Gray, the Astros have revealed that an error was made in recent media guides, giving Jose Valverde a birthdate of June 24, 1979, rather than his actual DOB of March 24, 1978. This obviously wasn’t just an Astros mistake, as Valverde has been…

  3. Restoring the rosters: No. 1 – Seattle

    Sep 9, 2009, 4:21 PM EDT

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  4. Content with AL's worst OBP, Royals bypass Ka'aihue

    Sep 8, 2009, 5:12 PM EDT

    The Royals do talk a good game when it comes to on-base percentage. Manager Trey Hillman has cited its importance in numerous interviews since taking over the team prior to 2008, only to put his statements to the lie with every on-field action since. Of course, GM Dayton Moore hasn’t helped. His acquisitions of Mike…

  6. What we're watching: Timmy needs a W

    Sep 8, 2009, 4:22 PM EDT

    - While he’s turned in five quality starts in the stretch, Tim Lincecum has been limited to one victory in six starts, putting quite a dent into his Cy Young chances. He’ll look to get back on course tonight against a Padres team that has scored more than four runs just once in eight games.…

  9. Ailing Sizemore finally calls it a year

    Sep 4, 2009, 6:20 PM EDT

    It was just a matter of when Grady Sizemore would undergo surgery on the elbow that’s bothered him for months. He’d indicated that he intended to finish the year and then undergo the procedure, and he likely would have followed through on that had the Indians been in contention. Of course, that hasn’t been the…

  10. Restoring the rosters: No. 5 – New York Yankees

  11. What we're watching: Halladay takes on the Yankees

    Sep 4, 2009, 4:31 PM EDT

    - It’s the fourth of the month, which of course means that Roy Halladay is facing the Bombers. He’ll be attempting to halt the Yankees’ seven-game winning streak. He’s come up short in his last two starts against New York, giving up five runs in seven innings to take a no-decision in the Jays’ loss…

  12. Restoring the rosters: No. 6 – Montreal/Washington

  13. What we're watching: Lincecum vs. Pedro

    Sep 3, 2009, 4:45 PM EDT

    - The Red Sox and Rays will finish off their three-game series with young guns Clay Buchholz and David Price on the mound. Buchholz took a shutout into the ninth and struck out nine in a win over the Blue Jays last time out. Price is also coming off one of his best starts of…

  14. Classic moments in BBWAA buffoonery: Take 1

    Sep 3, 2009, 4:13 PM EDT

    Since it seems we’re all set up for at least one and and maybe two potentially lousy choices in AL award balloting, I thought it’d be fun to look at some historical low points. I’ll take suggestions for future episodes — I could probably do a week’s worth of blogs on 1987 alone — but…

  15. Schilling considers bid for Kennedy's Senate seat

    Sep 2, 2009, 5:18 PM EDT

    It’s a long shot, but that won’t stop all of the fun specuation. Retired 200-game winner Curt Schilling on Wednesday told NECN that he hadn’t ruled out running for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by the late Ted Kennedy. The AP story can be found here.

  17. What we're watching: Beckett looks to bounce back

    Sep 2, 2009, 4:33 PM EDT

    - Brad Penny makes his first start for the Giants in a big game against Philadelphia. The Phillies won a sterling contest 1-0 last night, as Cole Hamels pitched a two-hit shutout to outduel Jonathan Sanchez. That allowed the Rockies to reclaim a one-game lead in the wild-card race. The Giants will likely need a…

  18. Giants add top prospect Posey to aid postseason push

    Sep 2, 2009, 4:03 PM EDT

    In a surprising turn of events, the Giants have opted to call up 2008 first-round pick Buster Posey to help out with Bengie Molina still struggling due to a strained right quad.   The Giants had indicated that Posey would finish the season in the minors and then get a break before taking part in…

  19. Notes from Tuesday's moves and callups

    Sep 1, 2009, 6:48 PM EDT

    - The White Sox brought up both Tyler Flowers and Josh Fields to help fill the void left by Jim Thome’s departure. Fields’ return was never in doubt, but he may not see as much playing time as expected if the White Sox want to see if Flowers is ready to hit in the majors.…

  20. What we're watching: Hudson returns against Marlins

    Sep 1, 2009, 5:16 PM EDT

    - Fresh off a sweep of the Rockies to move into a tie for the wild card lead, the Giants will begin a three-game series in Philadelphia tonight. The opener will feature dueling left-handers in Jonathan Sanchez and Cole Hamels. Sanchez, who pitched poorly enough in the first half to be bounced from the rotation…

  22. Arms race in NL West: Dodgers add Thome, Garland; Rockies get Contreras

    Sep 1, 2009, 1:19 AM EDT

    The Brad Penny pickup set off a chain reaction in the NL West, as the two remaining contenders also picked up pieces before the Monday night deadline to have new acquisitions qualify for postseason play. The Dodgers landed a potential Hall of Famer in Jim Thome, but right-hander Jon Garland may well prove to be…

  23. Restoring the rosters: No. 9 – Toronto

  24. Giants look to bolster rotation with Penny

    Aug 31, 2009, 4:49 PM EDT

    It’s worked out well for the Cardinals, so now the Giants will try to give their rotation a boost by picking up one of Boston’s castoffs. In this case, it’s Brad Penny, who went 7-8 with a 5.61 ERA in his first and possibly last stint in the American League. Penny’s lack of success wasn’t…

  25. What we're watching: Kawakami vs. Johnson

    Aug 31, 2009, 4:31 PM EDT

    - Tim Hudson versus Josh Johnson would have been tonight’s premier matchup, but the Braves have pushed Hudson back and opted to go with Kenshin Kawakami instead. Kawakami has lost both of his starts against the Marlins this season, amassing an 8.44 ERA in 10 2/3 innings. The last loss was in a matchup against…
