  1. A’s beat Rangers again, AL West still up for grabs

    Oct 3, 2012, 12:55 AM EST

    Brandon Moss

    One imagines the A’s would have been perfectly happy with the wild card a few weeks ago. Now they’re one game away from winning the AL West. Travis Blackley allowed one run and three hits in six innings and the bullpen came through one more time Tuesday as the A’s topped the Rangers 3-1 to…

  2. Great Moments in Selective Endpoints

    Sep 27, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Fox’s Jon Paul Morosi has been at the vanguard of the Miguel Cabrera MVP argument. The Michigan resident and former Tigers beat writer is very pro-Cabrera this year. Which is fine, because as I’ve said before, it will not be an atrocity if Miguel Cabrera wins the MVP award. I think, personally, it’s the wrong…

  3. Adrian Beltre says that Eric Gagne should have named names

    Sep 27, 2012, 8:54 AM EST

    Erig Gagne 2

    Yesterday it was revealed that Eric Gagne claims in his upcoming biography that 80% of his teammates with the Dodgers back in the day took PEDs.  Adrian Beltre was one of his teammates back then — and people have speculated about him using PEDs in the past — so it was understandable that someone asked…

  4. Joe Mauer closes batting title gap on Miguel Cabrera with MLB-leading 22nd three-hit game

    Joe Mauer AP

    For a while it looked like Miguel Cabrera‘s biggest hurdle in claiming the triple crown would be topping Josh Hamilton in homers, but Joe Mauer has been on fire this month to close the gap in the batting average race. Mauer had his MLB-leading 22nd three-hit game of the season last night and is now…

  5. Ernesto Frieri has gone from unhittable to untrustworthy for the Angels

    Sep 21, 2012, 11:19 AM EST

    Ernesto Frieri

    Ernesto Frieri was absurdly good for the Angels after they acquired him from the Padres on May 3, allowing zero runs in his first 26 appearances while some people asked things like “how can someone with a 0.00 ERA not make the All-Star team?!” In those first 26 shutout appearances for the Angels he had…

    Nationals' Wang throws against the Los Angeles Dodgers during Game 2 of their MLB National League baseball doubleheader in Washington

    Nationals 4, Dodgers 1: Congrats to the Nats for clinching the first postseason birth for a D.C. team since 1933. Pour one out for Joe Cronin, Moe Berg, Lefty Stewart and Heinie Manush. Reds 5, Cubs 3: And congratulations to the Reds too, who clinched their spot hours before the Nats did.  The Reds are…

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Orioles 9, Athletics 5: Baltimore salvages one. Which is important for two reasons. Reason 1:  It’s their 82nd win of the year, which means they will finish above .500 for the first time in forever.  More importantly: they really just need to avoid the disaster west coast trip here. If they take care of business…

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  10. MRI shows no damage, so Adrian Beltre returns to lineup

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:27 PM EST

    adrian beltre getty

    UPDATE: Change of plans, as Beltre apparently talked manager Ron Washington into letting him be the Rangers’ designated hitter tonight. ========== Adrian Beltre is not in the Rangers’ lineup tonight after leaving last night’s game with a shoulder injury, but the good news is that an MRI exam showed no structural damage. Jeff Wilson of…

  11. Adrian Beltre departs game vs. Indians with strained left shoulder, will undergo MRI

    Sep 12, 2012, 10:18 PM EST

    adrian beltre getty

    Some potentially awful news here for the Rangers. According to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, third baseman Adrian Beltre was lifted in the fifth inning of Wednesday’s game against the Indians after feeling  discomfort in his left shoulder following a stellar defensive play at the hot corner in the second. Beltre dove hard to his…

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Just gonna warn you: this was written as cold medicine was taking effect, with wine — ill advised, I know — and while listening to the new xx album. Lots of heavy stuff here, not best for reason or, for that matter, the reading of box scores.  But we’ll soldier through because this is the…

  13. Mike Trout is no MVP, Alfonso Soriano is — baseball columnists

    Sep 11, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Mike Trout

    I know these are just two opinions from a couple of random dudes, but wowzers. First, Gary Fraley of the Dallas Morning News, who has a slide show — annoying, by the way — with his thoughts on MVP candidates. His comment on Mike Trout: The Angels are charging, but Trout is showing signs of…

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  15. Jurickson Profar homers in his first major league at-bat and doubles in his second

    Sep 2, 2012, 2:34 PM EST

    profar ap

    Sometimes it feels like this stuff has to be scripted. Rangers prospect Jurickson Profar crushed a pitch into the right field stands in his first major league plate appearance Sunday at Cleveland’s Progressive Field, becoming the youngest player to homer in a major league game since Adrian Beltre in 1998. MLB.com already has the video highlight. Profar,…

    Tampa Bay Rays v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 6, Rays 5: Adrian Beltre was last week’s player of the week after hitting for the cycle one night and hitting three bombs on another. He’s off to a good start for that award again, going 3 for 3 with a homer a double and four RBI. David Price had one of his worst…

  17. Chris Davis hits three homers in Orioles’ victory

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:55 PM EST

    Chris Davis' third home run

    Chris Davis was further phased out of the Rangers’ plans two years ago by the Adrian Beltre signing. Now an Oriole, he watched Wednesday as Beltre hit three homers against his club in a Rangers rout. Davis, though, didn’t take it lying down. He joined Beltre and became the ninth player this year to hit…

  18. Adrian Beltre hits for the cycle against the Twins

    Adrian Beltre Getty

    While Matt Harrison‘s no-hit bid was broken up with two outs in the seventh inning tonight against the Twins, the fans at the Ballpark in Arlington still got to witness a little history. Adrian Beltre hit for his second career cycle as part of an 8-0 victory. He had an RBI triple in the bottom…

    Eight Men Out

    It was a light schedule and my Braves played a late game, so I watched “Eight Men Out” last night. For, like, the 5th or 6th time. And that just made me want to watch “Matewan” again for, um, the 20th time or thereabouts. Maybe tomorrow night. Anyway, damn you John Sayles, damn you. As…

    Baltimore Orioles v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 12, Orioles 3: Five years ago last night Texas laid 30 runs on the Orioles. Not so bad last night, but still pretty ugly. Adrian Beltre smacked three dingers and drove in five. Sadly, Tommy Hunter was only allowed to give up a solo homer, two-run homer and a grand slam, falling just short…

  21. Adrian Beltre homers three times in rout of Orioles

    Aug 22, 2012, 11:01 PM EST

    Adrian Beltre

    Adrian Beltre went yard three times, including twice in a nine-run fourth inning, in the Rangers’ 12-3 defeat of the Orioles on Wednesday. Beltre and Mitch Moreland both knocked in five runs in the game. Moreland had a grand slam as part of the huge fourth inning. It was the first career three-homer game for…

    Aug 6, 2012, 5:42 AM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

  23. Mike Olt makes Rangers debut as first baseman, No. 8 hitter

    Aug 2, 2012, 4:13 PM EST

    Jean Segura, Mike Olt

    Called up from Double-A late last night, Rangers prospect Mike Olt is making his big-league debut tonight starting at first base and batting eighth. Olt was primarily a third baseman in the minors and projects as a good defender there long term, but the Rangers already have one of the league’s best all-around third basemen…

  24. Let’s do it again: Angel Pagan punches something, leaves game

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:46 AM EST

    Angel Pagan

    San Francisco’s Angel Pagan became the second player to leave a game Monday after punching a dugout surface in frustration, joining Boston’s Ryan Sweeney. Pagan was taken out after six innings with the Giants up 4-2 tonight, and he was missed afterwards, as the Mets went on to win a wild one 8-7 in 10…

  25. The Rangers are talking to the Marlins about Josh Johnson

    Jul 25, 2012, 8:50 AM EST

    Josh Johnson

    I already vented spleen about the Marlins sale. Some have responded to me saying that I’m overstating this, and it’s not THAT big of a sale.  So it’s probably worth noting that in addition to a starting pitcher, their would-be star third baseman and their starting second baseman, they’re talking about dealing their ace as…
