  1. What they're saying about Edwin Jackson's no-hitter

    Jun 26, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    Some assorted reaction and befuddlement to Edwin Jackson’s no-hitter against the Rays on Friday night. Jon Paul Morosi: “I’ll admit that the final tally — 149 pitches, eight walks — looks a little absurd. But 2010 is the “Year of the 0.” We witnessed three perfect games (unofficially) in less than one month. A no-hitter?…

    Jun 26, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the Giants will call up Madison Bumgarner to start against the Red Sox on Saturday. Bumgarner was scratched from his start for Triple-A Fresno on Friday night, but the Giants downplayed the whole situation at first, saying that he would only be used if Joe…

  3. Mariners could trade Cliff Lee sooner than you think

    Jun 26, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    Two executives from clubs that have inquired about Cliff Lee tell Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com that the Mariners are willing to move the left-hander “immediately” for the right offer. This particular piece of information didn’t grab me right away either, because I would think any team should be willing to do that, but Rosenthal adds…

    Jun 25, 2010, 9:59 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Jackson did it! He walked eight and needed 149 pitches to get there, but he has successfully completed the fourth no-hitter of the 2010 season. Also, Jackson is the first pitcher to throw 140 pitches in a game since Livan Hernandez threw 150 (!) on May 3, 2005. Somebody get this guy some ice.…

    Jun 25, 2010, 8:41 PM EDT

    Hey, would you look at that, some actual baseball news involving Johan Santana. How refreshing.

It isn’t like Santana to make excuses, but it’s pretty easy to see that…

  6. Garrett Atkins would "welcome" release from Orioles

    Jun 25, 2010, 8:02 PM EDT

    After the Orioles acquired Jake Fox from the A’s earlier this week, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com speculated that Garrett Atkins would be designated for assignment in order to make room for Saturday’s starter Brad Bergesen. It turns out that won’t happen, as Lou Montanez will go on the disabled list with an oblique strain. Still,…

    Jun 25, 2010, 7:37 PM EDT

    UPDATE: According to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs have suspended Carlos Zambrano indefinitely for his actions during Friday’s game. “His conduct was not acceptable,” Cubs general manager Jim Hendry said. “It has become a bit of a tired act.” According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com, Hendry said, “We’ll play with 24 before…

  8. The Padres are looking for . . . pitching?

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

Here’s how Stone described the meeting: I felt because this is our ballpark, I should go down into his locker room. I got a chance to…

  10. The Brewers will not be having a fire sale this summer

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Given how poorly the team has played, it’s been reasonable to assume that the Brewers are at least considering selling off players, possibly even Prince Fielder and Corey Hart.  Not so says owner Mark Attanasio, because the fans deserve better: “The thing you have to remember is that we’ve had three million fans coming to…

  11. Phillies road team, Blue Jays home team at Citizens Bank Park

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    The Jays come in to Philly tonight for a three game set . . . as the home team. You’ll recall that this little switcheroo is the result of the G-20 summit taking place in Toronto. As a result, the series that was supposed to take place in the Rogers Centre is now in Philly…

  12. Aramis Ramirez returns from disabled list as a question mark

    Jun 25, 2010, 3:46 PM EDT

    Placed on the disabled list earlier this month after struggling with a thumb injury all season, Aramirez Ramirez rejoined the Cubs today after taking two weeks off and going 1-for-6 with two walks at Single-A during a very brief rehab assignment. Prior to going on the shelf Ramirez hit just .168 in 47 games, so…

    Jun 25, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer came back from his brief demotion to Triple-A pitching like a new man and fortunately for the Tigers it looks like Rick Porcello is following in his footsteps. Optioned to Triple-A over the weekend after following up his strong rookie season by going 4-7 with a 6.14 ERA in 13 starts this year,…

  15. Should the Dodgers trade Matt Kemp? No! But not for the reasons you think

    Jun 25, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Ken Rosenthal has a bold idea for the Dodgers. After listing all the things that ail the currently-slumping boys in blue, Robo says: General manager Ned Colletti needs to be pragmatic. He needs to be creative. He needs to trade center fielder Matt Kemp. This is dumb.  But maybe not for the reasons you’re thinking.…

  16. Hip surgery, not thumb surgery reportedly nixed the Rangers' offseason trade for Mike Lowell

    Jun 25, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    When the Rangers pulled out of a nearly completed trade with the Red Sox for Mike Lowell this winter the assumption was that they did so because he needed thumb surgery. However, now Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that worries about Lowell’s surgically repaired hip actually nixed the deal, as the Rangers and other teams…

  18. What's wrong with Jonathan Papelbon? A lot, actually

    Jun 25, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Lost in Dustin Pedroia’s heroics last night is that Jonathan Papelbon blew a save on back-to-back days for the first time in his career and blew consecutive saves, period, for just the third time. Here’s what he said afterward: I’ve got to go back to the drawing board. It’s just that simple. If I sit…

  19. The Rangers hearing is back to July 9th

    Jun 25, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Remember yesterday how I said that it probably wasn’t that big a deal that the mediation and hearing in the Rangers’ case got moved to July 16th and July 22nd, respectively? Well, apparently Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan thought it was a big deal, because they filed a motion late yesterday asking that they be…

  20. Bobby Cox gets colorful about Jeff Loria

    Jun 25, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    When Fredi Gonzalez was fired the other day Bobby Cox — Gonzalez’s former boss — was quoted waxing admiringly about Gonzalez. He said some stuff about Jeff Loria too, however. Fun stuff that I didn’t see until this morning: “I know that guy is unpredictable, but I was still . . . After everything  [Gonzalez]…
