  1. It’s lunacy to keep Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens out of the Hall of Fame

    Nov 28, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Barry Bonds

    There are 37 players on the 2013 Hall of Fame ballot. And, over the coming weeks, we will consider all of their candidacies in turn.  But there are two players making their debut on the ballot who tower above all of the others, and nothing useful can be said about the Hall of Fame class…

  2. Sullivan: Michael Young was jobbed for the Clemente Award

    Oct 29, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    Michael Young dugout

    We argue about every possible award around here because, heck, what else is there to do when there are no baseball games going on?  But while it’s easy to come up with any kind of argument for one guy over another for the MVP or the Cy Young or whatever, it’s not easy — and…

  3. Derek Jeter ties Willie Mays on the all-time hits list

    Sep 14, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Obviously they’re two different kinds of players, but it’s kind of cool to see Derek Jeter tie Willie Mays on the career hits list. Number 3,283 came on a seventh inning RBI single last night during the Yankees 2-0 win over Boston.  It was his 195th hit of the year, which leads the majors. So,…

  4. Omar Vizquel wants to be a major league manager next year

    Aug 10, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Omar Vizquel

    No major leaguer has gone directly from playing to managing since Pete Rose was doing double duty for the Reds in the 1980s. Omar Vizquel hopes to change that, though; he wants the chance to interview for managerial openings this winter. “I want to manage now,” Vizquel told FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi. The fact that both…

  5. Braves beat Halladay, finish sweep of Phillies

    Jul 29, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    So much for that big Phillies surge. Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones homered off Roy Halladay on Sunday as the Braves beat the Phillies 6-2 to complete a big three-game sweep. The Braves won their fifth straight behind Tim Hudson, who moved to 10-4 in the year. Apart from his Tommy John surgery year in…

  6. Barry Larkin, Ron Santo inducted into the Hall of Fame

    Jul 23, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Former Cincinnati Reds shortstop Larkin delivers his acceptance speech after being inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown

    It was Hall of Fame day yesterday and two new members joined the club: Barry Larkin and Ron Santo. Larkin’s daughter sang the National Anthem and it brought tears to his eyes. Ron Santo’s widow, Vicki Santo, gave the acceptance speech in her late husband’s honor and it nearly did the same for everyone else.…

  7. Mets tie a major league record in 17-1 drubbing of Cubs

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy

    The game started off quietly enough, with the Mets and Cubs tied at 1 after three innings. It didn’t stay that way, though: the Mets exploded for 15 runs between the fourth and sixth innings in routing the Cubs 17-1 on Wednesday. David Wright, Ike Davis, Scott Hairston and Daniel Murphy combined to drive in…

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

    Jun 11, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Torii Hunter, Mark Trumbo

    Angels 10, Rockies 8: Mark Trumbo hit two three-run homers to help the Angels complete what was nothing short of an annihilation of the Rockies’ pitching staff. Trumbo is at .326/.380/.632. It would have been optimistic to predict those numbers from Pujols before the season started. Nationals 4, Red Sox 3: Bryce Harper had the…

  9. Former major leaguer Chad Curtis under investigation for touching students

    May 5, 2012, 8:58 PM EDT

    Chad Curtis

    Chad Curtis, who played 10 seasons in the majors before retiring in 2001, has been suspended from his volunteer high school position amid allegations that he inappropriately touched students. Curtis, who denied the allegations, had been volunteering at Lakewood High School near Lake Odessa. He was slated to become the school’s head football coach this fall.…

    The Question

    Q: What would you do if you joined the BBWAA for 10 years? Vote for Jay Bell and Bill Mueller for the Hall of Fame? Act petulantly and intellectually dishonest while appealing to authority if and when I was called out for my irrationality?  Anything I wanted to, really. Q: Should sports reporters/analysts be able to…

  11. Pedro Gomez embodies the intellectual dishonesty of the anti-PEDs bloc of the Hall of Fame electorate

    Apr 25, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    Jeff Bagwell

    ESPN’s Pedro Gomez had some back and forth on Twitter last night about the Hall of Fame. Pete Rose came up, but so too did PED users — or rumored users — like Jeff Bagwell. Here’s Gomez’s tweet in response to someone who thinks it is unfair for Gomez and his “500 friends,” as Gomez…

    The Question

    Another round of Twitter questions, some of which I held back for the next edition of HBT Extra. These, however, did not make the video cut. Which is cool, because as we all know, the non-video ones are usually more fun. Anyway: Q: So…what would you say, ya do here? Well look, I already told you!…

  13. Bryce Harper cranks it up to 11 in GQ interview

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:21 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Will Leitch interviewed Bryce Harper for GQ, and the interview just went live.  It’s fantastic.  If for no other reason than the picture of Harper with a baseball in his mouth right at the top. But it can also be summed up with Leitch’s observation that “Harper seems to have emerged fully formed to piss…

  14. You can interview Jose Canseco. As long as you pay $2,000

    Nov 18, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Jose Canseco

    Dave Brown of Big League Stew is about the nicest guy I’ve met since I started meeting baseball writery-types a couple of years ago. He’s funny. Disarming. Straight shooter.  If there’s anyone who isn’t going to misrepresent you in an interview it’s Dave. Quite the opposite in fact. His forte, via his Answer Man interviews,…

  15. Why not have Jason Varitek manage the Red Sox?

    Nov 14, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    Jason Varitek

    Hiring managers without managing experience is the new fad in baseball. The White Sox chose former third baseman Robin Ventura from way out of left field, and the Cardinals just picked their old catcher, Mike Matheny, over a two-time World Series champion manager who seemed like a pretty perfect fit for a veteran team. So,…

  16. GM considered Paul Konerko as White Sox player/manager

    Oct 11, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    In addition to learning that Robin Ventura’s contract with the White Sox runs through 2014 another interesting tidbit from his introductory press conference as manager today is that general manager Ken Williams admitted he considered first baseman Paul Konerko for the job before settling on Ventura: It was considered long enough for me to realize…

  17. Derek Jeter ties passes Mickey Mantle for most games played as a Yankee

    Aug 29, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    UPDATE: I screwed up: Jeter passed Mantle in yesterday’s game. He tied Mantle on Friday. Derek Jeter played in the front end of yesterday’s Yankees-Orioles doubleheader. In doing so he played his 2,402nd game as a Yankee. That put him past Mickey Mantle on the all-time Yankees games-played list. Only 22 men* have appeared in…

  18. Where will Derek Jeter finish on the all-time hits list?

    Jul 9, 2011, 5:38 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Upon reaching the milestone Saturday, Derek Jeter became the fourth youngest player to collect 3,000 hits, doing so just a couple of weeks after his 37th birthday on June 26. Ty Cobb got there at age 34.  Hank Aaron and Robin Yount were 36.  Pete Rose was just a week older than Jeter when he did it.…

  19. Derek Jeter’s emphatic entry into the 3,000-hit club

    Jul 9, 2011, 2:27 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit

    Derek Jeter joined Wade Boggs in making his 3,000th hit a homer.  Here’s how 27 of the 28 members joined the 3,000-hit club. Home Run Boggs (Aug. 7, 1999) Jeter (July 9, 2011) Triple Paul Molitor (Sept. 16, 1996) Double Honus Wagner (June 9, 1914) Nap Lajoie (Sept. 27, 1914) Stan Musial (May 13, 1958) Roberto Clemente…

  20. Is the Dodgers’ bankruptcy one of the worst moments in baseball history?

    Jun 28, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Ray Chapman

    Interesting idea floated in Buster Olney’s column this morning. It’s behind the ESPN paywall, but the gist is that, according to Olney, the Dodgers’ bankruptcy has to be one of the “10 worst chapters in Major League Baseball history.” He doesn’t do a formal list or order them, but he throws out several potential top-10…

    The Question

    If we can get the hamster and the wheel inside our camera working properly we’ll have some Twitter questions on HBT Daily later. For now, the ones that didn’t make the video cut.

  22. You can own the dirt beneath Derek Jeter’s feet

    Jun 22, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter smiling

    In ancient times, some random sect of people might lay claim to the remains of a venerated hero as a part of hero cult.  Parts of their weapons or clothes, a lock of hair, earlobes, whatever.  This practice developed over the centuries and, like most ancient practices, was adopted and/or co-opted by organized religion, with stuff like Elisha’s bones…

  23. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Jun 19, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Cleveland Indians

    It’s June 19. On this date in baseball history, Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith announced his retirement (1998), Darryl Strawberry signed a one-year contract with the Yankees despite being given a sixty-day drug-related suspension (1996), and Pete Rose collected his 2000th career hit (1973). Your Saturday box scores: Astros 7, Dodgers 0 Orioles 2, Nationals…

  24. Ray Fosse doesn’t think you can change the rules regarding catcher collisions

    May 27, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Rose Fosse

    If there is one person whose opinion of the Buster Posey injury is worth hearing it’s Ray Fosse. Who, if you’re unaware, suffered a pretty bad injury that seriously impacted his career when, as a 23-year-old, he was bowled over at home plate by Pete Rose in the 1970 All-Star Game. It’s worth noting, though,…

  25. Josh Hamilton intends to continue sliding head first

    May 25, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton injury

    Josh Hamilton lost a month and a half of the season thanks to an ugly head first slide into home plate. So, logic dictates, he’s going cut that sort of thing out, right? Nah. I didn’t see it, but someone in the comments told me that he slid head first twice last night.  And here…
