  10. Mike Matheny is “increasingly and bizarrely petulant”

    Aug 29, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny

    Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post Dispatch is one of the best local sports columnists in the country and also doesn’t engage in the shouting and trolling and overall buffoonery of so many big names in the same industry, so when he criticizes Cardinals manager Mike Matheny like this it made me take notice:…

    Ryan Howard Getty

    It’s possible that Ryan Howard could return from July knee surgery to rejoin the Phillies lineup in September, but interim manager Ryne Sandberg told Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com that it would be “counterproductive” for the first baseman to do so.

    Phillies left-hander John Lannan is expected to undergo surgery to repair a partially torn tendon in his knee, which would knock him out for the remainder of the season.

  20. Jim Leyland asserts the supremacy of the pitcher win at the All-Star press conference

    Jul 15, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Apple Citi Field

    I just got back from the All-Star Game press conference in which Jim Leyland and Bruce Bochy announced their starting pitchers and lineups.  As Aaron noted, we get Scherzer vs. Harvey and a couple of lineups with which you could quibble, I suppose, if you wanted to, but what’s the point, really? Go outside and…

    Jun 12, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…
