  1. Francisco Liriano and Tim Hudson win Comeback Player of the Year awards

    Oct 5, 2010, 3:15 PM EST

    MLB announced this afternoon that Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano and Braves right-hander Tim Hudson have won the Comeback Player of the Year awards for their respective leagues. Liriano struggled last year in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, going 5-13 with a 5.80 ERA, but was one of baseball’s best starters this…

  2. Papelbon blows another one: Sox lose to the Jays, 6-5

    Aug 12, 2010, 4:01 PM EST

    Jonathan Papelbon doesn’t lead the league in blown saves. But for some reason, it always feels like a bigger deal when he blows one than when someone else does. And he blew another one today, giving Toronto a victory over Boston. John Lackey was cruising throughout most of the game. He had thrown only around…

  3. Morrow loses no-hitter in ninth inning against Rays

    Aug 8, 2010, 3:34 PM EST

    Brandon Morrow struck out 17 Rays batters this afternoon in Toronto and came within one out of a no-hitter. He threw 137 pitches — 97 of which were strikes.

  4. Lots of history in today's Rays-Blue Jays game

    Aug 7, 2010, 5:11 PM EST

    Some good, some bad. I’m gonna throw you for a loop and start with the bad. James Shields tied a modern day major league record by giving up six home runs in this afternoon’s 17-11 loss to the Blue Jays. Shields is the eighth pitcher since 1920 to do it and the first since R.A.…

  5. Rumor: Giants, Jays, Dbacks talk three-way trade

    Jul 31, 2010, 3:42 PM EST

    And that’s all we know. FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi says San Francisco, Toronto and Arizona have discussed a three-way deal, but he has no additional details for us. It’s well known that the Giants have interest in both Jose Bautista and Scott Downs from Toronto. But I’m struggling to see how the Diamondbacks fit in…

    The Yankees display the rare “Three-Man High-Butt” in this photo. Why are they so happy?

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

    May 30, 2010, 10:18 PM EST

    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…

  8. And That Happened: Tuesday's Scores and Highlights

    May 26, 2010, 5:51 AM EST

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: In light the Phillies’ struggles against Tim Wakefied and R.A. Dickey (6 IP, 7 H, 0 ER, 7K), the Mets are rumored to have offered contracts to Charlie Hough and Steve Sparks, the Braves are trying to persuade Phil Niekro to come out of retirement , the Nationals have been in…

  9. Springtime Storylines: Is anyone gonna want to watch the Blue Jays this year?

    Mar 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    Between now and Opening Day, HBT will take a look at each of the 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2010 season.  Ah, the Blue Jays. The lambs to the AL East slaughter . . . The big question: Is anyone gonna want to…

  12. Jays offense to suffer in wake of Gonzalez signing

    Nov 26, 2009, 2:14 PM EST

    The Blue Jays are being aggressive early in their bid to hold on to fourth place in the AL East. One day after re-signing backup John McDonald for $3 milion over two years, GM Alex Anthopoulos nabbed Alex Gonzalez to start at shortstop, guaranteeing him $2.75 million. It’s a very, very good start for my…

  13. If Mariners are done with Lopez, suitors should be plentiful

    Nov 24, 2009, 4:29 PM EST

    It’s been suspected by some, but never phrased so strongly. Seattle Times writer Geoff Baker — our most trusted Mariners news source — wrote Tuesday that he “seriously doubts” second baseman Jose Lopez will still be a Mariner by the start of spring training. No legitimate Lopez rumors have sprung up yet, with the little…

  14. My ballot: American League MVP

    Free Agency Preview – Catcher Free Agency Preview – First base & DH This is part three in a series of columns looking at this winter’s free agents, trade candidates and non-tender possibilities. I’ll be making predictions for the key free agents, but try not to take them too awfully seriously. Here are the second…

  16. Shin-Soo Choo gets boned, and other thoughts on the Silver Slugger Awards

    Nov 13, 2009, 9:20 AM EST

    The Silver Slugger Awards were announced last night. Like the Gold Gloves, the Silver Slugger is voted on by managers and coaches and stuff. Which makes little damn sense. We’ve long been in a world where offensive contributions can be quantified objectively — especially compared to defense — so why there’s a vote involved is…

  17. 2009's best 'comeback' seasons

    Oct 4, 2009, 8:09 PM EST

    Because everyone likes a good comeback story. Chris Carpenter: After being sidelined for much of the past two seasons following Tommy John surgery, Chris Carpenter has not only become a near-lock as the NL Comeback Player of the Year, but he could be in line for his second Cy Young, as well. Carpenter finished the…

  18. Just take your base, Jorge

    Sep 16, 2009, 2:36 AM EST

    Take your base Jorge. Just take your base. That’s what you do when a pitcher throws a pitch behind you. A pitcher on a team that is not going to come anywhere near sniffing the playoffs. Yes, Jesse Carlson threw that ball near your backside on purpose (somehow he missed). He was trying to hit…

  19. Daily Dose: Pena's unique season ends

    Sep 8, 2009, 12:02 AM EST

    Carlos Pena’s strange season came to an end Monday when CC Sabathia broke two fingers on his left hand with a fastball in the first inning. Pena will miss the remaining four weeks after hitting .227/.356/.537 with 39 homers and 100 RBIs in 135 games, leaving him with the highest OPS in baseball history among…

    Aug 31, 2009, 5:02 PM EST

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  22. Big Papi back to putting up big numbers

    Aug 27, 2009, 12:41 PM EST

    Remember when David Ortiz was hitting just .185 with one homer through two months and people were quick to write him off as washed up? Turns out, not so much. Ortiz went deep twice last night, including a walk-off blast that curled around Pesky Pole in the bottom of the ninth inning, and has now…

  23. And That Happened: Sunday's scores and highlights

    Aug 3, 2009, 7:00 AM EST

    Hello all. I’m pinch-hitting for Craig as he works on perfecting his Perry Mason imitation. Go easy on me. I can’t even imitate Rusty Hardin. Dodgers 9, Braves 1: Chad Billingsley struck out nine in five innings, but Joe Torre sat him down after the pitcher came down with a cramp in his hamstring. Billingsley’s…

  24. Midseason AL Most Valuable Player

    Jul 15, 2009, 4:29 PM EST

    I went with Zack Greinke as AL MVP one-third of the way through the season, but he’s fallen back to the pack by posting a 3.97 ERA since the beginning of June. The focus will return to the position players this time around. Here’s the top 16, according to VORP: 1. Joe Mauer – 46.22.…
