  1. Jose Reyes won’t be ready to return from DL when eligible

    Aug 15, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Jose Reyes is eligible to come off the disabled list on August 23, but yesterday manager Terry Collins indicated that the shortstop returning from his injured hamstring then is highly unlikely. Reyes was initially given a 2-3 week recovery timetable and has yet to begin baseball activities, so it’s hard to imagine him making it…

    Wait, you don’t remember Slim Goodbody?  Eh, the 70s were a different time. Anyway, the Memphis Redbirds had cool jerseys on Saturday night. They hosted Organ Donor Night, sparking awareness of the goodness of organ donation and encouraging fans to do the same.  And to help out, they donned the following jerseys. Kinda cool, no?…

  3. Sunday worst: Rockies lose 17th straight Sunday game

    Aug 15, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Last night’s loss to the Cardinals was the 17th straight time the Rockies have been defeated on Sunday, which is an MLB-record that shortstop Troy Tulowitzki called “mind-boggling.” Colorado actually won its first two Sunday games this season, back in April, but have dropped 17 in a row since then. Overall this season they’re 2-17…

    Chris Jaffe has a fun article up over at The Hardball Times today. Of course, almost everything Chris Jaffe writes is fun, so this should be no surprise, but this one is more fun than most: it’s baseball’s Randy Moss All-Stars. What’s a Randy Moss All-Star?  According to Chris, it’s a guy who had a…

    Jason Castro has missed the entire season after tearing his ACL early in spring training, so the Astros may get their projected starting catcher some 2011 playing time by asking him to play in the Arizona Fall League.

    I’m gonna level with you: thanks to the vacation, I have no freakin’ idea what happened last week. Oh, I quickly glanced at scores most mornings, but I didn’t think hard about it or process any of it. I have a very weak grasp on who’s hot and who’s not. And, even if I can…

    If you like hugs and if you like Nick Cannon, you probably need to go Citi Field this Friday for the Mets-Brewers game: The New York Mets today announced they are teaming up with Nick Cannon, host of 92.3 NOW’s Morning Show, to “Hug It Out” and help Cannon break the Guinness World Record for…

  8. Jason Marquis has a broken leg, is lost for the season

    Aug 15, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Jason Marquis

    If you missed it yesterday, Diamondbacks starter Jason Marquis broke his fibula on a comebacker during the Dbacks-Mets game. He’s done for the year. Crazy thing: he broke it on an Angel Pagan line drive in the third inning. But he stayed in the game, finished the inning and then pitched to two batters —…

  9. Ryan Howard: the Phillies’ seventh-best player

    Phillies' Howard smiles after scoring the game-winning run against the Astros during their National League baseball game in Philadelphia

    I felt bad that the Phillies game got rained out, thus depriving you guys of obsessing over them in the ATH comments, so I’ll just throw this little link out there for you. It’s an article by Sean Forman — the boss of Baseball-Reference.com — from yesterday’s New York Times. In it he offers the totally…

    After a week off I have no idea what in the hell is going on. Some dude tried to convince me on Twitter last night that Texas A&M has petitioned to join the AL Central and I’m inclined to believe him.  That’s what happens when you get in the car with the kids, drive 450…

    Miss me? No? Ah, well. Baseball stops for no one man. Back to the grind then: Brewers 2, Pirates 1: The walkoff sac fly for Nyjer Morgan. Of course all guys who hit sac flies walk off the field, so whatever. Charlie Morton‘s scoreless innings streak was snapped at 24. In other news, Charlie Morton…

  13. Report: Ted Lilly, Jason Vargas among those to clear waivers

    Aug 14, 2011, 7:07 PM EDT

    Jason Vargas

    Color me skeptical, but ESPN’s Buster Olney says all of the following starting pitchers have already cleared waivers and are eligible to be traded: Chris Capuano, Bruce Chen, Tom Gorzelanny, Ted Lilly, Rodrigo Lopez, Jason Vargas, Chien-Ming Wang and Carlos Zambrano. It’s largely Vargas’ presence that causes me to question the list.  It’s very hard to…

    Braves slugger Dan Uggla snapped his 33-game hitting streak Sunday in a 6-5 loss to the Cubs.

    Florida Marlins v Oakland Athletics

    We wondered earlier what the next step in the Logan Morrison demotion saga might be. It appears that answer has now arrived. According to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, who has been all over the story since Saturday, Morrison is considering filing a grievance against the Marlins for optioning him suddenly to Triple-A.…

  16. Giants’ Brandon Belt homers twice in first game back

    Aug 14, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT

    belt homer ap

    The Giants’ handling of Brandon Belt this season has been frustrating and confusing. He hasn’t produced, but that’s mostly because the San Francisco front office hasn’t given him an opportunity to produce. (Belt entered play Sunday with only 90 major league plate appearances to his name). If the talented 23-year-old is going to earn a…

    The Marlins demoted 23-year-old outfielder and outspoken tweeter Logan Morrison to Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday night, pointing to his recent offensive struggles as the reason for the move. Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post later deduced that a series off-field issues also played a factor. Morrison, a fan-favorite of a rare degree, had…
