  1. Hall of Fame weekend “kind of sad”, “not as much excitement”

    Jul 27, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    No, Hideki Matsui is not a Hall of Famer

    The Baseball Writers Association of America opted not to elect any new living members to the Hall of Fame for the first time since 1965. Scott Miller of CBS Sports asked some living legends about the atmosphere in Cooperstown, New York, and the sentiment wasn’t very positive. “This year, it’s kind of sad,” former Cardinals…

  2. Tim Lincecum could have an interesting Hall of Fame case someday

    Jul 14, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    With his fastball hovering around 90 mph these days, Tim Lincecum will probably never again be what he was when he first came up. Of course, that’s a remarkably high standard; Lincecum won Cy Young Awards in his first two full seasons and led the NL in strikeouts three years in a row. From 2007…

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

    Jun 17, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    Anna Scorecard

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…

  4. Jackie Robinson’s old glove sells for $373,000 at auction

    Jun 3, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Jackie Robinson

    One of the gloves Jackie Robinson wore while playing for the Dodgers in 1955 and 1956 was sold at an auction for $373,000. According to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com that’s the second-highest price ever paid for a glove, behind $387,500 for a Lou Gehrig glove at a 1999 auction. Also in the same auction: One…

  5. The rise of the 12-strikeout game

    May 31, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Dillon Gee follows through on a pitch to the New York Yankees during their MLB interleague baseball game in New York

    Last night, it was Dillon Gee and Doug Fister. On Wednesday, it was Eric Stults, of all people. All told, there have been 23 12-strikeout games from pitchers one-third of the way through the 2013 season. Not only is it a record pace, but it’s already more than the entire league achieved in 2005 or 2008. It…

  6. Yu Darvish is on pace for the most strikeouts in a decade

    May 28, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the Los Angeles Angels in Arlington, Texas

    Yu Darvish racked up 14 strikeouts in 7.2 innings against the Diamondbacks yesterday, giving him an MLB-leading 105 on the season. Darvish totaled 221 strikeouts in 191.1 innings last year, which is a ton, but the Rangers right-hander taken his bat-missing to another level this year. Darvish leads MLB with 12.7 strikeouts per nine innings,…

  7. Anibal Sanchez had himself a ballgame

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:48 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Detroit Tigers

    With all due respect to Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann, the author of a one-hit shutout against the Cincinnati Reds, Anibal Sanchez was tonight’s best pitcher. The right-hander, who signed a five-year, $80 million contract with the Tigers back in December, shut out the Braves with a franchise record 17 strikeouts over eight innings. The Braves…

  8. Dan Shaugnessy, Rusty Staub inducted into the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame

    Apr 17, 2013, 11:31 AM EDT

    Image (1) shaughnessy1.jpg for post 3299

    A guy who thinks Jack Morris, Tim Raines, Alan Trammell, and Curt Schilling were the only worthy Hall of Famers on the last ballot is now a Hall of Fame inductee himself. So too is a guy who was quite smug and pleased when no one at all was elected this past winter.  Oh, and some…

  9. Pete Rose is not a fan of the unwritten rules

    Apr 5, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Image (1) rose.jpg for post 3569

    He’s not a fan of any rules, actually, but those unwritten ones really bug him: On the unwritten rules of baseball: I used to get screwed when we had a seven- or eight-run lead, because I couldn’t bunt for a single or I’m “showing up the opposition.” … Guys that are home run hitters can…

  10. Rangers strike out 15 Astros in second straight shutout

    Apr 3, 2013, 5:47 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando wasn’t quite Yu Darvish today, but he did surrender just four hits and strike out 10 Astros over 6 1/3 innings in the Rangers’ 4-0 win. Michael Kirkman and Joe Nathan combined to fan five in relief, giving the Rangers their second straight 15-strikeout game. Darvish racked up that many all by himself…

  11. As if you needed another reason to hate Alex Rodriguez

    Feb 25, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    The Boston Globe has a feature on the non-profit foundations set up by athletes, and as one might expect, some do a better job of funneling money to their stated missions than others do. One, though, stands apart and might even be considered a fraud: A foundation started by New York Yankees third baseman Alex…

  12. The Red Sox’ use of Toradol was contrary to state law

    Feb 15, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    toradol

    Jeff Passan of Yahoo! reports that the Red Sox’ use of Toradol was contrary to state law and industry guidelines. Specifically: Passan quotes Curt Schilling — and, importantly, two other sources who are not Curt Schilling — who say that the Red Sox’ trainer routinely injected it into players despite state laws which prohibit sports…

  13. More fun excerpts from Terry Francona’s book

    Jan 22, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    File image of Boston Red Sox manager Francona walking back to the dugout during their MLB American League baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park in Boston

    Anecdotes and dirt keep leaking out about Terry Francona’s upcoming book.  Most people think it’s good fun and dishy. Others have a more negative view about Francona going public.  Either way, there are some funny things coming out. Like this bit about Manny Ramirez in the 2004 World Series, passed along by Chad Finn of…

  14. Using their logic, the BBWAA has to keep Tom Glavine out of the Hall of Fame, right?

    Jan 11, 2013, 9:51 AM EDT

    Tom Glavine

    Many Hall of Fame voters have said that everyone who played in the steroid era is under suspicion or, at the very least, share culpability because they did not say or do anything to combat the scourge of PEDs during the 1990s. Specific fingers have been pointed at the player’s union and its leadership for…

  15. Random nuggets from the Hall of Fame voting results

    Jan 9, 2013, 4:57 PM EDT

    bbwaa logo

    Fun things — and some not so fun things — from today’s voting results beyond the names we talked about already: Falling off the ballot because they didn’t receive 5%: Bernie Williams, Kenny Lofton, Sandy Alomar Jr.,Julio Franco, David Wells, Steve Finley, Shawn Green, Aaron Sele, Jeff Cirillo,Royce Clayton, Jeff Conine, Roberto Hernandez, Ryan Klesko,…

  16. Shutout! The Baseball Writers Association of America fails to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame

    Jan 9, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Cooperstown

    It’s possible that this year’s Hall of Fame ballot was the most stacked in the history of the institution.  It contained the all-time home run leader. It contained a seven-time Cy Young award winner who may have been the best pitcher in baseball history since the deadball era. It contained the best hitting catcher of…

  17. My imaginary Hall of Fame ballot

    Jan 8, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Roger Clemens

    I don’t have a Hall of Fame vote, obviously, but I’ve written enough about it and criticized enough people who do have a vote that I may as well say what I’d do if I had the franchise. Here’s my whole ballot. I include everyone on it because, unlike so many of the voters, I…

  18. Bob Ryan’s curious Hall of Fame column

    Dec 17, 2012, 9:02 AM EDT

    jack morris-thumb-250x375-4861

    Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe actually has a pretty good Hall of Fame ballot. He leaves off Bonds, Clemens and Sosa — lots of people will be doing that — but then gives the nod to Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Edgar Martinez, Jack Morris, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, and Curt Schilling. I am against Morris…

  19. Inducting Jack Morris would lower the bar for the Hall of Fame

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

    jack-morris-03jpg-3f54fc94864f2ba1_medium[1]

    I’ve covered this territory before, and I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here. Still, it needs to be written again: Jack Morris did not have a Hall of Fame career. The funny thing is that the writers once knew this. When Morris debuted on the Hall of Fame ballot in 2000, he received…

  20. Steroids or no, Sammy Sosa doesn’t belong in Hall of Fame

    Dec 2, 2012, 1:14 AM EDT

    Sammy Sosa

    If I had a Hall of Fame ballot — and don’t worry, I do not — I’d put down nine names on it this year: Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, Curt Schilling and Alan Trammell. Yes, there are some cheaters on that list: three definites and…

  21. Here is the 2013 Hall of Fame ballot

    Nov 28, 2012, 12:07 PM EDT

    cooperstown

    The Baseball Writers Association of America just released the 2013 Hall of Fame ballot. It, along with information about past voting totals and an overview of all of the candidates’ careers, can be read at the BBWAA website.  Here’s the list of players: Sandy Alomar Jr. Jeff Bagwell Craig Biggio Barry Bonds Jeff Cirillo Royce…

  22. The Hall of Fame ballot will be announced today

    Nov 28, 2012, 6:52 AM EDT

    Brace Yourself

    Many of you hate Hall of Fame arguments. Many of you hate steroids arguments. If that’s the case, you may want to skip about half of all baseball content written between now and the end of the year. Why? Because the 2013 Hall of Fame ballot will be announced at noon today, and it represents…

  23. Great Moments in Cause and Effect

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Schilling

    Curt Schilling, August 21, 2012: Schilling tweeted that “if the state loses money it’s because the Governor is a dunce of epic proportions, nothing I can do about that.” In follow-up tweets on Monday, Schilling also called the governor a “buffoon” and called the prospect of him getting re-elected in 2014 “terrifying.” Lincoln Chafee, November 1,…

  24. 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…

  25. Chris Carpenter joins exclusive club with 10th postseason win

    Oct 10, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Chris Carpenter

    Thought to be out for the season after July surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, Chris Carpenter came back to go 0-2 with a 3.71 ERA in three starts at the end of the regular seasons. On Wednesday, he picked up his first win in almost a year by shutting out the Nationals for 5 2/3 innings in…
