  1. 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…

  2. 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.…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.…

  6. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Apr 26, 2012, 9:59 AM EDT

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Apr 18, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    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!…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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,…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Jun 23, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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,…

  21. 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…

  22. HBT Weekend Wrap

    May 16, 2011, 8:25 AM EDT

    Posada

    I didn’t do nothin’ this weekend except age with grace, humility and in full awareness of my limitations. Jorge.

  23. Good news: Cano is day-to-day following his beaning (with bonus video)

    May 12, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    As Drew noted last night, Robinson Cano was hit in the head by a Nate Adcock pitch in the fifth inning of the Yankees-Royals game.  Good news this morning: Cano’s CT scan came back negative and, while he’ll probably sit out today’s series finale against the Royals, he is day-to-day and could very well be…

  24. Chipper Jones becomes 52nd player to reach 500 doubles

    Apr 26, 2011, 1:18 AM EDT

    Braves batter Jones hits a double scoring three runs off Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Lee in their home opening MLB baseball game in Atlanta

    Future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones added another milestone to his collection Monday night, collecting his 500th career double in the 12th inning against the Padres. It was his seventh double in 23 games this season. Jones, who earlier this month reached 1,500 RBI for his career, is the fourth switch-hitter to reach 500 doubles,…

  25. Jose Canseco is a manager now. And Ozzie is his bench coach.

    Apr 11, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    ozzie and jose canseco

    I have total faith that this will work out just fine and will last the entire season. Because I am an insane person: The Yuma Scorpions announced today that Jose Canseco has been named as the Manager of the minor league baseball team for this coming season in the North American League.  He will also play…
