    San Francisco Giants v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Aubrey Huff‘s anxiety-inspired trip to the disabled list was a somewhat surprising, but it appears he won’t be away from the team for an extended period: Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that Huff is expected to join the team back in San Francisco on either Friday or Saturday.

  2. Albert Pujols: still struggling

    Apr 26, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    This can’t last. Of that much I’m certain. But dudes: Albert Pujols just went hitless in his fifth straight game. He’s 0 for 19 in that stretch. I’m thinking of moving to Defcon 4 here. He at least walked last night — viva reaching base! — but he struck out twice, and he finds himself…

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:51 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Baltimore Orioles

    File this under “good-natured jab,” not “trash talk,” but it’s still fun: What would happen if Adam Jones faced Jim Palmer in his prime?  Jones answered that and many more questions in a live online Q&A with MASNSports.com‘s Amber Theoharis on Wednesday afternoon. “I would slap Jim Palmer around,” Jones quickly responded.  ”I told Palmer…

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Just as everyone predicted, right?

Lynn has allowed exactly one run in each of his four starts to…

    Aubrey Huff has missed the past few Giants games with what was originally referred to as a “family emergency.”  It may be more complicated than that, however, as the Giants have placed him on the 15-day disabled list with anxiety disorder.

  13. Astros’ 5-foot-5 hitting machine Jose Altuve goes 4-for-5, now batting .377 at age 21

    Apr 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Jose Altuve

    Houston’s offense is one of the most improved in baseball and sophomore second baseman Jose Altuve is a big reason why. He came into today hitting .344 with a .918 OPS and notched four more hits in a 7-5 victory over the Brewers. Altuve is a really fun player to watch because he’s 5-foot-5 (on…

    Apr 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game One

    Quite the dispiriting opening to today’s Pirates-Rockies doubleheader. At least if you’re the Pirates or one of their fans. Bucs’ starter James McDonald allowed only one hit in seven innings — the first hit coming in the seventh — and struck out eight and ended up allowing only one run.  Despite this, the Pirates lost…

    Diamondbacks snake logo

    Simple pleasures on a Wednesday afternoon:  word has gotten around that if you tweet something with the hash tag ” #GoDbacks,” that it automatically goes up on the scoreboard at Chase Field where the Dbacks and Phillies are getting ready to play in less than an hour. Not sure if it’s true or if it’s just…

    Over at The Classical, Eric Nusbaum looks at a new instant replay system that has been instituted in pro cricket, and notes how it has changed the way the game is actually being played: Technology changed the way umpires approached their jobs, which in turn has changed the way players approach theirs.
