  1. Red Sox placing Mike Lowell on disabled list to make room for Daisuke Matsuzaka's return

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Daisuke Matsuzaka is returning from the disabled list for tonight’s start against the Rockies and Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox will make room for him on roster by placing Mike Lowell on the DL. Perhaps his surgically repaired hip has been problematic of late or perhaps Lowell has just fallen so…

  2. My managerial ejection conspiracy theory

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    A mid-day’s daydream about why Charlie Manuel just got ejected from the Phillies-Indians game,

  3. Cliff Lee throws complete game as Mets and Twins reportedly emerge as trade talk 'frontrunners'

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee was brilliant again last night as rumors continue to swirl about his time in Seattle winding down, holding the Cubs to one run in a complete-game victory that lowered his ERA to a league-best 2.39. Lee missed most of April, yet leads the league with four complete games (including two shutouts) and has…

  4. Carl Crawford leaves Rays-Padres game early

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Of course, two minutes after I hit “post” on this bad boy word comes down: Crawford has a sore shoulder. Not sure why it’s sore. I won’t even speculate, because the minute I do someone will say it was for some other reason. Upshot: Crawford is out of the Rays-Padres game. Adjust your wagers…

  5. No, Joe Torre is not the greatest manager in New York history

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:12 PM EDT

    Joe Torre is a great manager. He’s not the greatest in New York history, however, and that’s true even if the Daily News says otherwise.

  6. Pitch to face breaks Pirates prospect and 2009 fourth overall pick Tony Sanchez's jaw

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Pirates catching prospect Tony Sanchez was hit in the face by a pitch Tuesday while playing at Single-A and has been diagnosed with a fractured jaw, so the fourth overall pick in last year’s draft will need surgery that could end his season. Sanchez was scheduled to represent the Pirates in the Futures Game during…

  7. The Dodgers may be talking to Pedro Martinez

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    The Dodgers could use some pitching help, and some have speculated that they could be in on the Cliff Lee frenzy. For now, though, general manager Ned Colletti is setting his sights a bit lower: free agent pitchers such a Pedro Martinez, Braden Looper and Jarrod Washburn. He’s not said that he talked to any…

  8. Jerry Seinfeld visits the Mets broadcast booth and Jose Reyes stays hot

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    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…

  9. Evan Longoria is slumping

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    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…

  10. The Pirates designate Dana Eveland for assignment

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

    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…

  12. No, Las Vegas would not work for Major League Baseball

    Jun 24, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

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

  13. Strasburg should have at least gotten a no-decision

    Jun 24, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    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.

  14. HBT Extra: The Great Vuvuzela Conspiracy

    Cliff Lee rumors, Mat Latos ruminations and the Great Vuvuzela Conspiracy of 2010. It’s all in this week’s edition of HBT Extra!

  15. The Yankees make a Grand escape

    Jun 24, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    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.

  17. And That Happened: Wednesday's Scores and Highlights

    Jun 24, 2010, 5:56 AM EDT

    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.

  18. Strasburg fans nine batters in fourth MLB start

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:53 PM EDT

    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…

  19. Johan reads statement on sexual assault accusations

    Jun 23, 2010, 8:25 PM EDT

    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,…
