  1. Document shows that Jamie McCourt does too own the Dodgers

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:30 PM EST

    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…

  2. God, politicians drive me absolutely freakin' nuts

    Aug 10, 2010, 2:04 PM EST

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

  3. Robinson Cano notches 1,000th career hit at age 27 to join elite company at second base

    Jul 26, 2010, 4:45 PM EST

    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…

  4. And That Happened: Classic

    Jul 13, 2010, 5:00 AM EST

    Note: due to the All-Star break, we now bring you a special “Classic” version of “And That Happened.” The following originally ran on July 13, 1969

  5. And That Happened: Sunday's Scores and Highlights

    May 3, 2010, 5:00 AM EST

    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…

  6. Colbert, Clark, Grace take shots at McGwire

    Jan 14, 2010, 7:11 PM EST

    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…

  7. Dave Parker: Hall of Fame afterthought

    Jan 4, 2010, 12:01 PM EST

    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…

  8. Nobody listens to Joe Girardi

    Dec 4, 2009, 12:15 PM EST

    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…

  9. And That Happened: Monday's scores and highlights

    Sep 29, 2009, 5:38 AM EST

    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.…

  10. Does Derek Jeter have anything left to prove?

    Sep 11, 2009, 9:22 AM EST

    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…

  11. Brian Roberts and the art of the two-bagger

    Sep 10, 2009, 12:37 PM EST

    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.…

  12. Was Shoeless Joe innocent after all?

    Sep 8, 2009, 8:20 AM EST

    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…

  13. Bruntlett's jersey is Cooperstown worthy?

    Aug 25, 2009, 10:21 AM EST

    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…

  14. Link-O-Rama: Six more starts for Chamberlain

    Aug 20, 2009, 11:50 AM EST

    * 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…

  15. Science proves you're not a Hall of Famer

    Jul 27, 2009, 10:26 PM EST

      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…

  16. Mazzaro's career starts with 13.2 shutout innings

    Jun 8, 2009, 12:36 PM EST

    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.…

  17. Blue Jays sign Andy Dirks

    Jan 15, 2015, 2:44 PM EST

    Andy Dirks

    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.

  19. Justin Upton traded to the Padres for three prospects

    Dec 19, 2014, 9:43 AM EST

    Justin Upton

    The Padres have gone crazy this week. The latest: acquiring Justin Upton and his big bat for a couple of prospects.

  20. How Twitter has changed baseball coverage. Which is part of the story, anyway.

    Nov 25, 2014, 3:03 PM EST

    Typewriter

    Technology itself hasn’t changed how reporters do their jobs. Rather reader demand, newly obvious by technology, has done so.

  21. The Indians are thinking of trading Nick Swisher. This is a big problem.

    Nov 18, 2014, 5:19 PM EST

    Nick Swisher

    Indeed, this could create a political crisis in Brohio.

  22. A’s do not plan to trade third baseman Josh Donaldson

    Nov 5, 2014, 7:48 PM EST

    josh donaldson getty

    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.

  23. Eight-run seventh inning sends Cardinals to 1-0 NLDS lead over the Dodgers

    Oct 3, 2014, 10:47 PM EST

    Matt Holliday

    Game 1 of the NLDS went off-script and it turned out to be a fun match-up between bitter playoff rivals.
