  1. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 19, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Twins 6, Yankees 5: Justin Morneau hit two homers. That’s four homers in six games, which hopefully means that Morneau is back to his mashing ways. Jason Marquis, who missed most of spring training when his daughter was seriously injured in a bicycle accident, made his first ever start in Yankee Stadium and got the…

  2. Ken Rosenthal thinks Ozzie Guillen should be suspended for 30 days

    Apr 9, 2012, 9:31 AM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Miami Marlins

    Ken Rosenthal tackles the Ozzie Guillen/Fidel Castro dustup and, early on, says this: I normally cringe at politically correct overreactions, particularly in response to mindless, preposterous remarks from people who are just spouting off. But … So you can guess where that’s going: a politically correct overreaction. Rosenthal calls Guillen’s Castro comments “about as extreme and…

  3. Mariano Rivera blows save as Carlos Pena plays hero in first game back with Rays

    Apr 6, 2012, 7:29 PM EST

    Carlos Pena Reuters

    Craig mentioned earlier how Joe Girardi’s over-managing in the first inning resulted in Carlos Pena hitting a grand slam against CC Sabathia. Well, Pena wasn’t doing playing hero in his first game back in Tampa Bay. The Yankees actually rallied back from the early deficit, handing the ball to all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera with…

  4. Jeff Keppinger is batting cleanup for the Rays

    Apr 5, 2012, 1:20 PM EST

    Jeff Keppinger

    There’s a whole lot of people picking the Rays over the Red Sox in the AL East. I wonder how many of them have taken a gander at Tampa Bay’s Opening Day lineup against the Yankees’ CC Sabathia: CF Desmond Jennings RF Ben Zobrist 3B Evan Longoria DH Jeff Keppinger SS Sean Rodriguez 2B Elliot…

    Joe Girardi

    The only thing sillier than predictions about who wins each division several months before the season ends is judging which team is the best before any games are played.  But hey, that’s never stopped me before, so let’s have a Power Ranking, shall we? And yeah, there is that big of a gap between the…

    Matt Moore

    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 2012 season. Up next: The Tampa Bay Rays. The Big Question: Do the Rays have the best rotation in baseball? The Phillies and the…

  7. Jeff Keppinger a smart pickup for thrifty Rays

    Jan 27, 2012, 6:20 PM EST

    Jeff Keppinger

    Counting on Carlos Pena, Matt Joyce and Luke Scott to fill key roles this year, the Rays had set themselves up to have huge problems against lefties in the bottom half of the order. That was alleviated somewhat today with the signing of Jeff Keppinger. Of course, Keppinger doesn’t play the same position as any…

    Jan 20, 2012, 12:10 PM EST

    carlos pena ap

    UPDATE: Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says Pena to the Rays is now a done deal and he’ll get $7.25 million. ========== Tampa Bay signed Luke Scott last week, but apparently the Rays aren’t done adding veteran left-handed bats. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Rays are “pretty deep” in talks with Carlos Pena,…

    National League first baseman Fielder of the Brewers watches three-run home run in fourth inning during Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Phoenix

    Taking into account recent signings and some new arrivals courtesy of the non-tender deadline, here’s a new list of the top 50 free agents available. Posted Japanese players Yu Darvish and Norichika Aoki are not included. Darvish, a right-handed pitcher, would come in at No. 2 on the list, while Aoki, an outfielder, would slide in right around No.…

  10. Orioles give up on Felix Pie, promote Matt Angle

    Aug 23, 2011, 6:35 PM EST

    Felix Pie

    After taking a big step backwards this year, 26-year-old Felix Pie was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Tuesday.  The team has called up fellow outfielder Matt Angle to take his place. Pie, a former Cubs prospect, seemed ready to start in center field for some team after a 2009 season in which he…

  11. Quote of the Day: Sergio Romo likes Obama

    Jul 27, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Obama First Pitch

    Segio Romo met the President the other day.  He was impressed: “He’s a cool cat. He was more human than I thought he would be. I was definitely surprised how normal the president of the United States is. He wasn’t as tall as I thought he’d be, as a basketball-fanatic type of guy. But he’s…

    82nd MLB All-Star Game

    I didn’t have any get-up-and-go last Monday, so I gave the Power Rankings a miss.  Back at it today, where we find greater separation than we’ve seen so far this year. Which is to be expected. I mean, by late July you are who you are. As always, the last ranking is in parenthesis. As…

    My weekend was rather hit-and-miss. On the one hand, I saw a couple of movies I liked in “Captain America” and “Super 8.”  On the other hand, I woke up Sunday morning to find that the combination of torrential rains and a power outage meant that my sump pump was out of commission when I…

    Here’s the third and final segment in the 2001 MLB draft redo. Click for parts one and two. 21. San Francisco Giants Actual: Brad Hennessey Redo: Ryan Theriot (78th pick, Cubs) As sad as it is to say, of the 20 pitchers drafted in the first round in 2001, only five have had better careers than…

Detroit Tigers Actual: Kenny Baugh Redo: Gavin Floyd (4th pick, Phillies) After an impressive debut in 2001, Baugh suffered a torn labrum and missed the 2002 season.

    The Question

    For reasons outside of my control — let’s just say the video feed for HBT Daily barfed on itself this morning — we weren’t able to get to all of your Twitter questions.  And I had some saved up for the video too!  Well, waste-not, want-not, I always say, so here’s what we would have…

  17. Orioles likely to place Derrek Lee and Cesar Izturis on DL

    May 17, 2011, 6:00 PM EST

    Derrek Lee

    According to the Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck, Orioles manager Buck Showalter all but confirmed that Derrek Lee and Cesar Izturis would go on the disabled list. First baseman Brandon Snyder and left-hander Troy Patton have joined the Orioles in Boston, and though neither has been officially activated yet, the team is likely to make room…

  18. Derrek Lee pulled from Monday’s game with strained oblique

    May 16, 2011, 9:36 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Tampa Bay Rays

    The oblique epidemic has claimed yet another victim. Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that Derrek Lee was pulled from Monday’s game against the Red Sox with a strained left oblique. He was replaced at first base by Jake Fox in the bottom of the third inning after going 1-for-2 with an RBI double. Lee, who…

  19. A day at the nail salon with Russell Martin

    May 13, 2011, 1:28 PM EST

    Martin_Russell

    ESPN’s Amy K. Nelson has a profile of Russell Martin.  The stuff about him regaining his health and confidence and baseball prowess in New York is the point of the story, but you’ll be forgiven if your attention is drawn to some stuff in the middle portion: “It’s not a good feeling when you’re putting…

  20. Josh Willingham, Curtis Granderson are bringing the charitable noise

    May 5, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    Willingham_Josh

    After a day of dealing with Luke Scott and John Rocker it’s something of a palate-cleanser to talk about this stuff: Alabama native and resident Josh Willingham has been pitching in big-time to help the victims of last week’s tornadoes. His wife is back home on the ground helping out. Meanwhile, he has been collecting donations…

  21. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 5, 2011, 5:55 AM EST

    Tim Hudson

    Braves 8, Brewers 3; Braves 8, Brewers 0: A day the Brewers would like to forget. The Braves scoring eight runs is rare enough, but doing it — in the first game at least — with no homers is even more rare for this station-to-station team. Tim Hudson threw a 102-pitch one-hitter in the nightcap,…

  22. John Rocker is going to publish a memoir

    May 4, 2011, 12:38 PM EST

    John Rocker

    Between Luke Scott and this wacko, I have the crazy beat covered today, no? Anyway, Jeff Shultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes that John Rocker, seemingly unable to persuade any of the big publishing houses to give him a deal, is self-publishing a memoir this summer. That should be illuminating reading. Attention anyone who has…

    New York Yankees' Colon follows through on a pitch to Chicago White Sox during their MLB baseball game in New York

  24. Birtherism and baseball: a classic combination

    Apr 27, 2011, 12:31 PM EST

    Gwynn-Jr._Tony

    As you may have seen, today President Obama released his long form birth certificate in an effort to shut up the loony fringe who decided to use the citizenship issue to attack him as Some Horrible Other, seeing as though open racism and xenophobia is off the table in polite society these days.  There are…

  25. Chipper Jones believes the U.S. government whacked JFK

    Mar 22, 2011, 9:12 AM EST

    JFK

    I’m about as likely to listen to Chipper Jones‘ theories on the JFK assassination as I am to listen to Luke Scott‘s theories about President Obama’s place of birth, but for those of you who demand more of your baseball players than mere athletic prowess, please know that Jones does, indeed, have a theory. At…
