  1. The Roberto Clemente Award Nominees have been announced

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Clayton Kershaw won it last year.  The 2013 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. And now my annual complaint, albeit a minor one: Baseball has set…

  2. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 28, 2013, 7:09 AM EDT

    1995 World Series

    Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks. The real amazing thing here is that if you would have told me before the season that the Braves would have a game in late August where Elliot Johnson got a start and tripled…

    Yankees' Soriano points as he crosses home plate in the fifth inning of their MLB American League baseball game the Angels in New York

    Yankees 11, Angels 3: Holy cow, Alfonso Soriano. Two homers and seven RBI. The old guy has four homers, six runs scored and 13 RBI in his last two games. The Yankees have won four straight. Reds 5, Cubs 0: Seven shutout innings from Bronson Arroyo helps the Redlegs snag the three-game sweep. My friend Mark,…

  4. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 26, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 9, Pirates 7: This could have been an awful, awful defeat, what with the Nats bullpen once again pooping all over itself. At least I’m assuming it would have been a defeat. The game was tied entering the bottom of the ninth. Thanks to Bryce Harper‘s walkoff homer, however, we don’t know how extras…

  5. Three Diamondbacks were injured last night

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Emergency Room

    Is spring training over yet? I’m assuming the Diamondbacks wish it was. For they lost three more players to injury in last night’s meaningless game. First, second baseman Aaron Hill was hit on the left little finger with a Jered Weaver pitch in the first inning. Then outfielder Jason Kubel rolled his left ankle a…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The Arizona Diamondbacks. The Big Question: Will Kevin Towers’ odd offseason pay dividends? After winning 94 games and the National…

  7. Notes and thoughts on the Justin Upton trade

    Jan 24, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Martin Prado

    Braves acquire OF Justin Upton and 3B Chris Johnson from Diamondbacks for 3B Martin Prado, RHP Randall Delgado, RHP Zeke Spruill, SS Nick Ahmed and 1B Brandon Drury. – As some probably guessed, I’m a big fan of this deal for the Braves. I wrote an entry trying to pair the Upton brothers in Atlanta…

  9. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  10. Gold Glove finalists announced

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

  11. 2012 projections review: second base

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

  12. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    Oct 17, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    trout getty

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

    Here are my picks for the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards for each league. Obviously, these are all for fun. I’m not a BBWAA member and do not have ballots for any of these awards. Feel free to flame away. AL MVP 1. Mike Trout 2. Miguel Cabrera 3. Robinson Cano 4.…

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…

  15. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, White Sox 1: Did you know that if you win the AL Central that you contract a horrible disease? If you answered yes, you must be either the Tigers or the White Sox. That’s five straight losses for Chicago. Jered Weaver wins his 19th, allowing one run over six and a third. Kendrys…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  17. Adrian Beltre hits for the cycle against the Twins

    Adrian Beltre Getty

    While Matt Harrison‘s no-hit bid was broken up with two outs in the seventh inning tonight against the Twins, the fans at the Ballpark in Arlington still got to witness a little history. Adrian Beltre hit for his second career cycle as part of an 8-0 victory. He had an RBI triple in the bottom…

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

  19. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aug 19, 2012, 8:37 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Houston Astros

    The longest current winning streak in the National League belongs to the 61-59 Arizona Diamondbacks. With center fielder Chris Young going 4-for-5, right fielder Justin Upton finishing 2-for-6 and second baseman Aaron Hill driving home three, the Snakes cruised to their third straight victory on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park, stomping the Astros 12-4.…

  20. All-Star starter Dan Uggla now hitting seventh for Braves

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Dan Uggla

    There’s been a lot of hostility directed Tony La Russa’s way for all of the NL All-Star snubs this week. Really, though, it’s the fans as a whole that made things more difficult than they needed to be by voting Dan Uggla, Rafael Furcal and Pablo Sandoval into the starting lineup. The Braves tonight dropped…

  21. Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

    Yu Darvish

    With one day remaining in the “Final Vote” contest for All-Star spots Rangers starter Yu Darvish leads the AL balloting and Cardinals third baseman David Freese leads the NL balloting. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the…

  22. Chipper Jones texts Bryce Harper, calls him “very classy”

    stay_classy

    Bryce Harper and Chipper Jones are pitted against each other in the “Final Vote” contest for an All-Star spot, with most people assuming that the Nationals phenom will win. Harper said Sunday that he’d vote for Jones because “I think a Hall of Famer should be able to go to the All-Star game his last…

  23. See the Brewers win on a double-error

    Jul 2, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Brewers

    When Carlos Gomez scored to give the Brewers a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, it was the first time since 1993 that a game ended on a play with two errors. Here’s the video: And this is one of the things about errors: the game-ending miscues here were charged to catcher Miguel Montero…

  24. Bryce Harper would vote for Chipper Jones for All-Star Game

    Jul 1, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper has to be considered the favorite to win the NL Final Vote for the last spot on the All-Star team, but he said after Sunday’s game that, “I’d vote for Chipper.” Harper and Chipper Jones are in the mix along with Michael Bourn, Aaron Hill and David Freese in the Final Vote, but…

    Major League Baseball revealed its 2012 All-Star rosters Sunday on TBS. But not everything is set for next Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City.
