    May 9, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…

  21. Angel Pagan goes from fringe regular to $40 million player

    Dec 3, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Angel Pagan

    The Mets were strongly considering non-tendering Angel Pagan rather than pay him $5 million or so for 2012. Instead, they found a taker for him in the Giants, who sent back fellow center fielder Andres Torres and right-hander Ramon Ramirez.

    Mike Pelfrey adjusts his cap after giving a run to the Houston Astros in Kissimmee, Florida

    Mike Pelfrey underwent Tommy John surgery in May and won’t be ready for the beginning of the season. Indeed, given how long it can take for post-TJ pitchers to regain command, he may not be terribly useful for much of 2013, let alone the beginning.  That is not dissuading the Mets, however. Mike Puma of the…
