Jerry Seinfeld picked a pretty good night to spend half the game in the SNY broadcast booth with Keith “I’m Keith Hernandez” Hernandez and Gary Cohen. Jose Reyes finished a double short of the cycle, R.A. Dickey continued his amazing run by improving to 6-0 with eight shutout innings, and the Mets won 2-0. They’re…

One of the reasons the Rays have had such a hard go of it lately has been that their best hitter — Evan Longoria — is really fighting it. He went 0 for 5 in last night’s loss to the Padres and he’s 4 for his last 31 in his last eight games. As Tony…

I have no idea why I care at all about Dana Eveland, but this is at least my third post about him this year. I don’t think I’ve posted as much about Jeter or Pujols. It’s gotta be the name. It’s just so darn dramatic sounding! But he’s just a name, it seems, because he’s…

Everyone thinks Vegas is a sure-bet major league city. They couldn’t be more wrong.

If this was basketball, all the calls would go in Strasburg’s favor because he’s a young stud and everything. This, however, is not basketball.

See what I did there with that headline? Clever, eh? You know, because Curtis GRANDerson hit the game-winning homer? Anyone? OK, maybe not. But when 5,000 blog posts you have written, occasionally hacky too you will become. Anyway: The Yankees came close to blowing a great opportunity just like the Red Sox did, except rather…

Bad day at Black Rock. Or Rockies. Or whatever.

In which I kind of go off the rails with a “Homicide: Life on the Streets” jag when I should have been talking about the Rays-Padres game.

Stephen Strasburg made his fourth start for the Nationals on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals, and it went about as well as you might expect. The rookie phenom struck out nine batters, issued no walks and allowed only one run over six strong innings. He didn’t get to ball four on a single batter and…

TMZ.com ran a story this afternoon detailing an October 2009 accusation of sexual battery against Mets ace Johan Santana. He addressed the report before Thursday’s game against the Tigers, reading a pre-written statement in the Citi Field clubhouse while surrounded by several media types. MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo was in attendance. As you can probably guess,…

It’s a tough blow for a 27-year-old who probably isn’t in line for many chances to establish himself in the big leagues. Tommy Manzella, who took over as the Astros’ shortstop when Miguel Tejada was allowed to leave over the winter, will miss six weeks after being diagnosed with a fractured left index finger. The…

Still dealing with a sore elbow, Zach Duke was expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Pirates on Wednesday. Duke last pitched a week ago, when he allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox. He has lost four straight starts, leaving him 3-8 with…

Speaking publically for the first time since surgery in March to repair a cavernous malformation in his brain, Ryan Westmoreland on Wednesday said he was making steady progress and that he hoped to return to playing baseball in the Red Sox system. Westmoreland, a 20-year-old outfielder rated as Boston’s top prospect by Baseball America over…

Johan Santana was accused of sexual battery. The charges were dropped. Before things get crazy, let’s grok a little perspective.

Not sure how I feel about comparing an aircraft carrier to Barry Bonds, but here it is anyway.

After making his first two rehab starts in the low minors, Edinson Volquez moved up to Triple-A this afternoon for the first time since undergoing Tommy John elbow surgery in August and allowed one run in five innings. Volquez threw 49 of 80 pitches for strikes, giving up three hits while striking out one and…

I feel icky even linking to it, but if I don’t you’ll never have a chance to read about a convicted attempted prostitute’s sexual fantasies about former Phillies pitcher Larry Christenson. And really, I couldn’t bear for you not to know that as, admittedly, Larry Christenson was not without his charms. And actually, that link…
