    There are few things in this game more majestic than a Giancarlo Stanton home run, but he’s also a pretty good interview. Here’s Stanton’s appearance on NBC SportsTalk last night, where he talks about his incredible 12-homer month of May and what it’s like to play for Ozzie Guillen.

    There were so many things to talk about in the aftermath of Johan Santana‘s no-hitter that this one flew under the radar a bit. Still, it’s pretty entertaining. After Santana struck out Cardinals’ third baseman David Freese to complete the no-hitter, he was mobbed on the mound by teammates and coaches. But there was also…

    No, it wasn’t a dream. Johan Santana made a little history last night by tossing the first Mets’ no-hitter as part of an 8-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Mike Trout Getty

    Not sure if you’ve heard about him, but this Mike Trout fellow is pretty dang good. The 20-year-old was in the middle of everything again last night, going 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBI in a 4-2 win over the AL West leading Rangers. Trout got the Angels on the board in the bottom…

  6. Foul ball? Johan Santana caught a break in his no-hit bid

    Jun 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EST

    foul ball

    Let’s be clear about something at the outset: this is not the bizarro Armando Galarraga/Jim Joyce play. This is not an egregiously bad call that should have anyone renting one’s garments nor gnashing one’s teeth. But it is inescapable: Johan Santana caught a lucky break on a missed call in the sixth inning of last…

  7. Johan Santana’s no-hitter is the latest step on his road to redemption

    Johan Santana Getty

    When the Mets acquired Johan Santana from the Twins in February of 2008 and signed him to a six-year, $137.5 million contract, he was supposed to be the piece that would bring the team back to the postseason. Things haven’t exactly worked out that way, as the Mets narrowly missed the playoffs in 2008 and…

    Terry Collins was thrust in between a rock and a hard place tonight. His choices: A) Let one of the most expensive pitchers in major league history, a guy who happens to be coming off shoulder surgery, top his previous career high in pitches in search of the franchise’s elusive no-hitter B) Pull his left-handed…

    UPDATE: He did it! Johan Santana has done it. He has thrown the first no-hitter in Mets’ history. Unbelievable. 9:31 PM: Santana has now held the Cardinals hitless through eight innings.

    After getting shut out over the first two months of the season, Brewers’ outfielder Nyjer Morgan is finally on the board.

  14. The Padres send Jeff Suppan packing

    Jun 1, 2012, 6:23 PM EST

    Jeff Suppan

    The fallout from Friday’s Yasmani Grandal promotion has come: the Padres designated Jeff Suppan for assignment prior to their game against the Diamondbacks. The 37-year-old Suppan started off with two surprisingly strong starts for the Padres, but he was 0-3 in four outings since. Plus, the appearances were getting worse. From first start to last,…

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Eric Wedge’s offseason lineup switches just didn’t work out. A month after pulling Chone Figgins out of the leadoff spot and the lineup altogether, Wedge has decided to go back to Ichiro Suzuki at the top of the order. Suzuki hit third and started in right field in each of the Mariners’ first 52 games…

  16. The Yankees may be interested in Matt Garza

    Jun 1, 2012, 5:32 PM EST

    Matt Garza

    The Yankees are probably going to seek some pitching help this trade season. And Jon Heyman reports that they’re most likely target is Matt Garza: Yankees people like the fact Garza is battle-tested in the American League East after acquiring too many pitchers from the National League who haven’t been able to make a seamless…

  17. Yuniesky Betancourt is off the DL, batting second for Royals

    Jun 1, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Yuniesky Betancourt

    Kansas City activated Yuniesky Betancourt from the disabled list and he’s starting at second base tonight against the A’s. Not only that, he’s batting second in the lineup. Because why wouldn’t you want a swing-at-everything hitter with a .293 career on-base percentage setting the table, right? Or something. Betancourt has been out since May 1…

    Jun 1, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

    Josh Thole Getty

  19. The Pirates place Charlie Morton on the DL

    Jun 1, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Charlie Morton

    The Pirates have placed Charlie Morton on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 30. It’s elbow inflammation, which has likely contributed greatly to his 2-6, 4.65 ERA start. Of course, it’s also possible that this trip to the DL has nothing to do with Morton’s health and has everything to do with Morton’s desire…
