  1. And That Happened: Sunday's Scores and Highlights

    May 31, 2010, 5:00 AM EDT

    Cardinals 9, Cubs 1: Things people were doing for about ten seconds and then suddenly pretending that they never did: (1) listening to swing music; (2) playing poker; and (3) wondering if it was possible that Albert Pujols was no longer the best player in baseball. Pujols: 3 for 3 3 HR, 4 RBI; Cherry…

  2. The Week Ahead: Moment of truth for Blue Jays

    May 30, 2010, 10:18 PM EDT

    The Yankees, Red Sox, and perhaps, the Rays. That was the common thinking on how the AL East race would go entering the season. The Toronto Blue Jays didn’t listen to those projections and enter the week at 30-22. They’re only in third place and 4 1/2 games back. But their record would be good enough…

  3. Posada ahead of schedule, takes batting practice

    May 30, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

  4. Balance of power shifting toward pitchers in MLB

    May 30, 2010, 6:01 PM EDT

    The baseball world has already been treated to several impressive pitching feats this season and it’s not even June.  From Ubaldo Jimenez’s no-hitter on April 17 against the Braves, to Dallas Braden’s perfect game on May 9 against the Rays, to Roy Halladay’s perfecto last night in Florida — 2010 has largely been the year…

  5. Scherzer racks up 14 Ks in return to big leagues

    May 30, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    The Tigers made the right move in demoting Max Scherzer to Triple-A Toledo two weeks ago after he rattled off a 1-4 record, a 7.29 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP through his first eight starts in a Detroit uniform.  And it will really seem like the right move now. Scherzer, 25, allowed just one run…

  6. Big Z to rejoin Cubs' starting rotation Wednesday

    May 30, 2010, 3:22 PM EDT

    Veteran right-hander Carlos Zambrano was moved to the bullpen in late April in a highly criticized move by manager Lou Piniella and the Cubs front office.  According to the Chicago Tribune’s Dave van Dyck, that will all change Wednesday when he rejoins the starting rotation and faces the Pirates. Big Z allowed six earned runs…

  7. Joey Votto remains out of Reds' starting lineup

    May 30, 2010, 2:04 PM EDT

    Reds first baseman Joey Votto will miss his fifth consecutive game on Sunday due to a stiff neck.  He ran and threw on Saturday, according to MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon, and will try to take batting practice this afternoon.  But he’s unlikely to return to the Cincinnati starting lineup until Monday, or maybe even Tuesday when…

    The Angels beat the Mariners in the 10th inning Saturday thanks to a walkoff grand slam delivered by first baseman Kendry Morales.  And that’s where the fun ended.

    May 29, 2010, 6:02 PM EDT

    In a bit of a surprise move, the Tigers will recall right-hander Max Scherzer from Triple-A Toledo to start against the Athletics on Sunday, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com. The Tigers were clearly headed in a different direction after Sunday’s projected starter Armando Galarraga pitched 1 2/3 innings of relief during Friday’s 5-4 loss.…

  19. The Marlins are trying to stuff the ballot box or something

    May 29, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

    As far as I’m concerned, every team makes a concerted effort to get their players represented in the All-Star game, but this Associated Press report makes it look like the Marlins might be pushing it a little bit: If a fan fills out 200 All-Star ballots, available at any of 30 locations around Sun Life…
