    St Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers - Game Two

    There’s still plenty of baseball left to be played, so we might be getting a little bit ahead of ourselves here, but Monday’s win by the Cardinals at least makes it possible that Prince Fielder has played his final game at Miller Park as a member of the Brewers. With the series now tied 1-1,…

  2. Albert Pujols leads the way in Game 2 blowout win over Brewers

    Albert Pujols didn’t do everything for the Cardinals tonight, but it sure seemed like it at times. Pujols went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, three doubles, five RBI and three runs scored in a 12-3 win over the Brewers in Game 2 of the NLCS, tying the series at 1-1. As part of a 17-hit attack…

    Oct 10, 2011, 10:34 PM EDT

    NLCS Cardinals Brewers Baseball

    The Brewers just missed out on a big opportunity in the fifth inning. But it wasn’t all their fault. After Arthur Rhodes walked Prince Fielder to load the bases with one out, Tony La Russa brought in right-hander Lance Lynn to face Rickie Weeks, who hit a two-run home run in his previous at-bat. Weeks…

  4. Red Sox managerial search on hold until Theo Epstein’s situation is resolved

    Oct 10, 2011, 9:49 PM EDT

    Theo Epstein

    Here’s something that’s not entirely surprising, but noteworthy, anyway. Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that Red Sox will not interview any candidates for their managerial vacancy until the Theo Epstein situation is involved. The Cubs have expressed interest in Epstein for their general manager vacancy and the Red Sox GM was reportedly spotted in a…

  5. Nelson Cruz getting hot at a great time for Texas

    Nelson Cruz

    Take a bow, Nelson Cruz. Already having homered to give the Rangers their third run in Saturday’s 3-2 victory over the Tigers, Cruz unleashed some more fury Monday, tying the game with a solo bomb in the seventh and then hitting a rare walkoff grand slam in the 11th as the Rangers won 7-3. Cruz, who…

  6. Scott Feldman bails out Rangers in Game 2 win over Tigers

    Oct 10, 2011, 8:50 PM EDT

    Scott Feldman pitches against the Detroit Tigers during the third inning in Game 2 of their MLB American League Championship Series baseball playoffs in Arlington

    The Texas bullpen figured to be a strength this month, with Alexi Ogando, Koji Uehara, Mike Adams and closer Neftali Feliz available to pitch the final four innings of games. Starter-turned-middle reliever Scott Feldman wasn’t so much a part of that plan, but the former 17-game winner stepped up big on Monday, pitching 4 1/3 scoreless…

    St Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers - Game Two

    It didn’t work out so well for them yesterday, but the Cardinals have another early lead against the Brewers. After Jon Jay reached on a bunt single with one out in the top of the first inning, Albert Pujols took right-hander Shaun Marcum deep for a two-run home run, giving the Cardinals an early 2-0…

  8. Brian Cashman says he hasn’t spoken with Yankees about new contract

    Oct 10, 2011, 7:56 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v New York Yankees

    One sure sign we’re rapidly approaching silly season? Plenty of conflicting reports. While Buster Olney of ESPN.com reported over the weekend that negotiations between the Yankees and general manager Brian Cashman were going smoothly and a new contract could be completed within the week, it appears they aren’t very far along in the process. Cashman told…

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    The Braves haven’t promised Jason Heyward the starting right field job next season, but he’ll at least go into the winter with some peace of mind about his right shoulder. According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, an MRI on Heyward’s shoulder came back negative. The 22-year-old missed four weeks during the first half…

    Tampa Bay catcher Robinson Chirinos “broke a bone near his right wrist” while playing winter ball in Venezuela, according to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times. Topkin reports that Chirinos is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks, which is bad news for his winter ball career but should leave him plenty of time…

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:22 PM EDT

    votto-110808

    Yonder Alonso‘s strong showing offensively and poor showing defensively led to some speculation that the Reds might clear a spot for him in the lineup by trading reigning MVP Joey Votto, but general manager Walt Jocketty put an end to those rumors today. “We haven’t talked about it,” Jocketty told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. “I…

  14. The Tigers’ next outfield option: Clete Thomas

    Oct 10, 2011, 4:27 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers Photo Day

    I’m not going to say that outfield depth is an issue for the Tigers, because the move they made earlier this afternoon pretty much sums it up: they’ve sent Clete Thomas to the instructional league to get the rust off in the event they need to activate him as a result of another outfielder injury.…

  16. Baseball: it’s better than killing Osama bin Laden

    Oct 10, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    Bin Laden

    The problem with the playoffs is that there’s only, like, one or two games a night and after you talk about them you sort of have to wait around all day for more games. If you’re like me, you kill that time by reading a bunch of articles in which people who never ever write…

    Here’s Associated Press columnist Tim Dahlberg on September 28th, talking about the “Moneyball” movie: Bottom line is small market teams can’t win consistently, no matter how many numbers they crunch. The deck is stacked against them by the most important numbers in baseball — the size of a team’s payroll. Here’s Associated Press columnist Tim…
