    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Adam Jones

    Adam Jones hit 32 homers and scored 103 runs for the Orioles during his finest regular season to date. Which is pretty hard to believe giving how badly he bombed during the ALDS. Jones went 2-for-23 against the Yankees and led the world in ugly at-bats. To go along with his six strikeouts, he had…

    Aramis Ramirez

    Aramis Ramirez‘s drive to the wall in left in the eighth inning of an ugly loss to the Nationals today didn’t do much for the Brewers, but it did make him the first player since 2009 to reach 50 doubles in a season. Ramirez, who was robbed of another potential double on a nice catch…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings.

    Nate McLouth

    Released by the Pirates last week after passing through waivers unclaimed, Nate McLouth has signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles.
