  1. Colbert, Clark, Grace take shots at McGwire

    Jan 14, 2010, 7:11 PM EDT

    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…

  2. Dave Parker: Hall of Fame afterthought

    Jan 4, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    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…

  3. Nobody listens to Joe Girardi

    Dec 4, 2009, 12:15 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 29, 2009, 5:38 AM EDT

    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.…

  5. Does Derek Jeter have anything left to prove?

    Sep 11, 2009, 9:22 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 10, 2009, 12:37 PM EDT

    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.…

  7. Was Shoeless Joe innocent after all?

    Sep 8, 2009, 8:20 AM EDT

    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…

  8. Bruntlett's jersey is Cooperstown worthy?

    Aug 25, 2009, 10:21 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 20, 2009, 11:50 AM EDT

    * 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…

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

    Jul 27, 2009, 10:26 PM EDT

      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…

  11. Mazzaro's career starts with 13.2 shutout innings

    Jun 8, 2009, 12:36 PM EDT

    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.…

  12. The White Sox likely to shop Jeff Samardzija, but won’t do a major tear-down

    Jul 20, 2015, 12:31 PM EDT

    Jeff Samardzija

    The Sox’ starter is a free agent after this season.

  13. A-Rod would not turn the All-Star Game into a circus. It already is one.

    Jul 8, 2015, 9:14 AM EDT

    150708_AlexRodriguez

    Rodriguez not making the All-Star team is not an injustice. But his not making it is a baseball thing.

  14. Barry Bonds’ wealth didn’t ensure his acquittal; the government’s horrible case did

    Barry Bonds AP

    And that’s the truth no matter what cyclist Tammy Thomas and the New York Daily News has to say.

  15. Joey Votto: “Man, I think I’m a bad mother [expletive]-er.”

    Joey Votto was colorful in describing himself to the media after hitting a pair of home runs on Friday night.

  16. You need to read about Del Webb, the former Yankees owner

    Mar 16, 2015, 3:41 PM EDT

    Del Webb

    Both America and baseball were built on questionable fortunes, conflicts of interest and power plays. And Del Webb was better than anyone at that stuff.

  17. D-Backs GM Dave Stewart doesn’t plan to deal for a catcher

    Mar 15, 2015, 10:25 PM EDT

    Oscar Hernandez, Robbie Ray

    The Diamondbacks are apparently happy to go into the regular season with Tuffy Gosewich as their starting catcher.

  18. Blue Jays sign Andy Dirks

    Jan 15, 2015, 2:44 PM EDT

    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.

    Dec 19, 2014, 9:43 AM EDT

    Justin Upton

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

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

    Typewriter

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

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

    Nov 18, 2014, 5:19 PM EDT

    Nick Swisher

    Indeed, this could create a political crisis in Brohio.

    Nov 5, 2014, 7:48 PM EDT

    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.
