  1. Francisco Liriano becomes 30th ever to fan 15 and lose

    Jul 13, 2012, 11:35 PM EST

    Francisco Liriano

    Francisco Liriano whiffed a career-high 15 batters on Friday night, but he still took a loss in a 6-3 game after giving up four runs — three earned — in eight innings against the A’s. Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam in the fourth inning to account for all of the scoring off Liriano. It…

    Schilling

    We’ve heard a lot of back and forth about what went down with the folding of Curt Schilling’s company. The Rhode Island politicians have grandstanded, Curt Schilling has postured and there is enough ugliness to it all that most people may want to wash their hands of it. But before you wash your hands of…

  3. Colby Lewis gives up five homers, strikes out career-best 12

    May 10, 2012, 6:08 PM EST

    Colby Lewis

    It was certainly a case of feast or famine for the Orioles in the first game of Thursday’s doubleheader. Rangers starter Colby Lewis gave up three straight homers to begin the bottom of the first, retired the next 18 hitters he faced and then surrendered two more homers in the seventh to leave down 6-0…

  4. Yes, Calvin Pickering, Carlos Baerga and Nick Esasky showed up for the Fenway bash

    Apr 20, 2012, 6:13 PM EST

    Fenway Park

    There was no keeping up with all 216 players to show up on the Fenway Park field for the 100th anniversary celebration today. Fortunately, the Boston Globe has a list of all those in attendance. Among the one-and-done Red Sox there were Carlos Baerga, Mark Whiten, Nick Esasky, Calvin Pickering, Sean Casey, Luis Alicea (I guess…

  5. My heavens! Massachusetts Senator takes political donation from Yankees president

    Apr 18, 2012, 10:34 AM EST

    United States Senator Scott Brown prepares to throw out the first pitch prior to a baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays in Boston.

    There are a lot more important things to get outraged about in politics, but if you’re gonna do things like wear the local team’s gear and stand in front of their ballpark in campaign ads in order to try to co-opt some goodwill, you had better not do this: U.S. Sen. Scott Brown may be rooting for…

    My friend Stephen Silver has lived in both Boston and Philly, and is intimately familiar with the respective sports scenes.  And he writes something today that is likely to make the fans in both of those cities mad: … as someone who has lived in both cities and has a lot of family and friends in…

  7. Will anti-McGwire stance among Hall voters soften over time?

    The announcement of the Hall of Fame vote will come in at 3 p.m. ET on Monday, and it will be interesting to see who is elected to Cooperstown. Will it be Barry Larkin and no one else? Perhaps. Some even suggest that no one will be elected, which would be bad news for those who…

  8. With ninth postseason win, Chris Carpenter makes a Hall of Fame case

    Oct 28, 2011, 11:52 PM EST

    Chris Carpenter

    144 regular-season wins wouldn’t typically get a starting pitcher within shouting distance of Cooperstown. With two stellar postseason performances for World Series-winning teams, though, 36-year-old Chris Carpenter is starting to build a case for eventual enshrinement in the Hall of Fame. Carpenter’s win on three days’ rest in Friday’s Game 7 against the Rangers improved…

    Stephania Bell of ESPN.com reports that the Dodgers will soon make Sue Falsone the first female head physical trainer in MLB history when they announce her hiring next week. Not only that, according to Bell she’ll be the first head physical trainer in any of the four major sports. Falsone has served as a consultant…

  10. Stat of the Day: Most pitches thrown in a postseason start

    Oct 14, 2011, 4:16 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander tosses a ball in the dugout during the eighth inning of Game 3 of their MLB American League Championship Series baseball playoffs against the Texas Rangers in Detroit

    Justin Verlander threw 133 pitches in last night’s win over the Rangers, which got me wondering about the most pitches ever thrown in a postseason start. Turns out, Verlander wasn’t even close to cracking the top 10. And that’s only counting games since people started tracking pitch counts, which rules out a whole lot of…

  11. What they’re saying: the Red Sox schadenfreude edition

    Sep 29, 2011, 1:25 AM EST

    Red Sox catcher Ryan Lavarnway and pitcher Jonathan Papelbon walk off the field after their loss to the Orioles in Baltimore

    Curt Schilling: Not sure what I just got done watching really happened. Most amazing, incredible, frustrating and crushing 2 hours of baseball ever. Red Sox GM Theo Epstein: Can’t sugarcoat this. This is awful. Orioles second baseman Robert Andino, after his game-winning hit: End of season like this, [to] make Boston go home sad, crying,…

  12. Is Terry Francona to blame for this mess?

    Sep 27, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Terry Francona

    The “blame Theo” chorus kind of died down this week as the shock of the Red Sox actual collapse seemed to overtake the rancor of the collapse-in-progress.  But Curt Schilling was asked about it again today and he said that, if you have to blame someone here, it’s better to blame Theo Epstein than Terry…

  13. It’s official: the Red Sox will win the wild card

    Sep 20, 2011, 5:01 PM EST

    Ric Flair

    Two reasons why I think the Red Sox have locked up the wild card. First: because Curt Schilling said today that he didn’t think they’d do it, and he’s wrong about everything. Second, because Gordon Edes just tweeted the following from the Red Sox clubhouse: Wrestler Ric Flair visited Sox clubhouse posed for pictures with…

  14. Josh Beckett: slow as molasses and no one seems to care

    Sep 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    Josh Beckett

    In addition to the maddening Curt Schilling-Nomar Garciaparra back-and-forth, another thing that made the Yankees-Red Sox game so damn hard to watch last night was its pace. Yes, I realize that’s an old complaint, but it’s still a valid one. These games are interminable and it really drives me nuts. It’s especially bad when Josh Beckett…

    Red Sox' Ortiz watches his two-run home run with Yankees' Cervelli during their MLB American League baseball game in Boston

    Red Sox 9, Yankees 5: I was watching this game until Curt Schilling and Nomar Garciaparra started talking about intangibles and how so-and-so has them “off the charts.” Which, given that they’re INTANGIBLE, what freaking chart could possibly measure them?  And another thing: Schilling talked about the game changing, saying that Dustin Pedroia never would…

    Bogart Madre

    I saw “Treasure of the Sierra Madre” on a big screen yesterday. Part of some western retrospective at the local quasi-art house theater. Never mind that “Madre” is more of a noir than a western. There are horses, guns and dirt in it, so that works. Either way, it was easily the best Sunday afternoon…

  17. Derek Jeter’s 3,000 hits: the victims

    Derek Jeter, Lou Marson

    It shouldn’t take anyone more than a couple of guesses to figure out which pitcher Derek Jeter has the most of his 3,000 hits against.  It is, of course, the one pitcher who has has been on a rival AL East team for the entire duration of Jeter’s career. Here are the 12 pitchers Jeter has…

  18. 10 years later, Bob Brenly still bitter about Ben Davis’ bunt

    Bob Brenly Diamondbacks

    Whether our entry yesterday had anything to do with it or not, Cubs PBP man Len Kasper decided to bring up the Curt Schilling game with former Diamondbacks manager and current Cubs color guy Bob Brenly today on WGN. And Brenly still isn’t happy about the play, saying that Davis did in fact break unwritten rules…

  19. 10 years ago today: Ben Davis breaks an unwritten rule

    May 26, 2011, 6:46 PM EST

    Curt Schilling Diamondbacks

    May 26, 2001 With Arizona’s Curt Schilling bidding for a perfect game, Ben Davis drops down a bunt single in the eighth inning, giving the Padres their first baserunner of the contest. The Diamondbacks were up 2-0 at the time, and there was much debate about Davis’ play afterwards.  Given that it brought the tying run…

    Cliff Lee phillies throwing

    Cliff Lee was brilliant against the Nationals last night, hurling a complete-game shutout while allowing just three hits and one walk. He also struck out 12 and needed only 99 pitches to record 27 outs, becoming the first pitcher since Chris Carpenter in 2009 to throw a complete-game shutout with double-digit strikeouts while using fewer…

  23. Lack of standout first-timers on next year’s HOF ballot is good news for Larkin and Bagwell

    bernie-williams-yankees

    Deserving players like Barry Larkin, Tim Raines, and Jeff Bagwell fell short of reaching the 75 percent of the votes required for Hall of Fame induction this year, but they’ll have a good chance to increase their totals in 2012 as the pool of first-year eligible players doesn’t include anyone likely bound for Cooperstown. Here’s…

  24. The Best and Worst Uniforms of All Time: The Arizona Diamondbacks

    Nov 11, 2010, 3:00 PM EST

    Schilling Diamondbacks

    Best: Minor variations aside, the Diamondbacks have only really had two uniforms. The current one and the old one.  The current one is not what I’d consider the Platonic ideal of baseball style, but as you’ll see in a second, I believe it to be the superior look. Worst: Incorporating teal, purple, black, pinstripes and…

  25. Brett Myers makes history by throwing six-plus innings in 30th straight start

    Sep 14, 2010, 11:19 AM EST

    Brett Myers’ career-year continued last night with seven innings of one-run ball in a win over the Brewers and he also made some history by becoming just the seventh pitcher since 1920 to throw six or more innings in each of his first 30 starts. The previous six: Bob Gibson (1968 and 1969), Fergie Jenkins…
