Recently there has been some noise about Jamie and Frank McCourt settling their divorce case and Frank buying Jamie out. A lot of this is likely borne of a desire to avoid a nasty trail that would likely have a lot of stuff about people sleeping with people who weren’t their spouse at the time…

This post will be important to the six Ohio readers out there who choose their politicians based on their baseball opinions.

Robinson Cano smacked a ground-rule double in the eighth inning yesterday afternoon for his 1,000th career hit, which is a pretty remarkable total for a second baseman in the middle of his age-27 season. Cano is currently on pace for another 84 hits this season and here’s how his projected total of 1,084 hits would…

Phillies 11, Mets 5: Look, there are about 17 different ways in which Johan Santana’s awful night could be described, but I think the fact that he walked Jamie Moyer with the bases loaded in the fourth pretty much tells you all you need to know. The Victorino grand slam that immediately followed was less…

If you think the Mark McGwire steroids saga has been played out, think again. Reactions just keep rolling in from all sorts of folks like Jack Clark (ban him from baseball!), Mark Grace (why would you do steroids and ruin your sex life?), and Christine Brennan (hey everybody, let’s talk about Pete Rose!) While each…

Buster Olney doesn’t actually endorse Dave Parker’s Hall of Fame candidacy, but he does throw out a morsel to chew on, courtesy of the ESPN stats department: If you go on the idea of a player being a dominant player in his era being an important qualification: Dave Parker finished in the top five of…

There’s a reason why the Yankees focus on free agent veterans: kids these days just won’t listen to Joe Girardi. The Yankee skipper tried to teach the Jets’ quarterback how to slide after getting his left knee banged up while pulling a Jim McMahon last week. So what happens last night? He forgets what Girardi…

Angels 11, Rangers 0: The Angels clinch the West, and in a fit of wrongheadedness so comically tragic that it strains credulity, they soak the jersey of a victim of a fatal drunk driving accident with beer and champagne in celebration. Here’s hoping that someone in Angels’ management was passing out cab vouchers last night.…

SI’s Tim Marchman has a good piece up this morning in which he breaks out what the numbers and career progression would need to look like in order for Derek Jeter to pass Pete Rose for the all-time hits record. Upshot: it almost certainly won’t happen, but it’s not impossible. Personally I’d like to see it simply because…

Last night Brian Roberts smacked his 50th double of the year, joining Hall of Famers Stan Musial, Tris Speaker, and Paul Waner as the only players in baseball history with 50-plus doubles in at least three seasons. Of course, while most fans can cite the significant homer records few people pay much attention to doubles.…

My recent posts about Pete Rose led a lot of you to bring up Joe Jackson, either (a) in support of keeping Rose banned (“Rose shouldn’t be let in as long as Shoeless Joe is banned!”) or (b) as a second guy, in addition to Rose, who should be let in (“the Hall of fame…

We had quite a lively debate yesterday about whether Pete Rose should be in the Hall of Fame. I’d have to guess, however, that even the most ardent Rose haters — of which I am not one, no matter what a lot of you think — would agree that Rose has a better claim to Cooperstown immortality…

* After meeting with manager Joe Girardi and pitching coach Dave Eiland to discuss his workload, Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to make six more starts this season. Chamberlain has averaged 5.5 innings per start so far, and if that continues he’ll end up throwing 160 innings spread over 29 starts after logging 100 innings between…

Somebody has been stealing your research money, and this is what they came up with: The Wall Street Journal reports that a pair of professors have invented a formula to predict whether a player will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Shockingly, it’s the players with awesome stats who will get in. But if…

A’s rookie Vince Mazzaro tossed 6.1 shutout innings against the White Sox in his MLB debut last week and followed that up with 7.1 scoreless innings against the Orioles yesterday afternoon. Mazzaro becomes just the ninth pitcher since 1954 to begin his career by allowing zero runs in back-to-back starts of at least six innings.…

Dirks had a rough 2013 for Detroit and then missed all of 2014 following back surgery, but he’s a 27-year-old career .276 hitter with a .745 OPS in 297 games as a big leaguer.

Josh Donaldson is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is likely to command a big sum of money, but the cost-conscious A’s aren’t even considering trading the star third baseman.
