    As far as classic baseball pranks go, it’s a simple one: Put a cup on top of someone’s head without them noticing and then watch them go about their usual business in the dugout while trying not to crack up too much.

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    There’s a little magic left in Jason Giambi‘s bat after all. The 42-year-old former MVP, who entered with a .177 average in 181 at-bats this season, hit a walkoff homer off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the Indians’…

    Baltimore Orioles v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Diamondbacks 4, Orioles 3: Paul Goldschmidt homered to tie it in the ninth, homered to win it in the 11th. It’s perhaps too late for this, but memo to Buck Showalter: maybe don’t pitch to Paul Goldschmidt. Two walkoff wins in a row for the Dbacks. Their ninth walkoff win of the year. Yankees 14,…

    Trevor Bauer

    Not his worst start. The worst start. Trevor Bauer surrendered five runs and six hits while getting just two outs Friday in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox.

  20. Michael Bourn is still waiting for some love

    Jan 20, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    Considered by many as the No. 2 free agent hitter available this winter, Michael Bourn has now gone three months with seemingly no market developing for his services. The Braves struck early to sign B.J. Upton to replace him. The Phillies also targeted Upton and then traded for Ben Revere after coming up short. The…

    Alejandro De Aza bruised his ribs sliding into second base Friday night and today the White Sox placed him on the disabled list while recalling Jordan Danks from Triple-A to take his roster spot.

    White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza made a premature exit Friday night after injuring his back on a slide into second base and is not action Saturday.
