  1. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 14, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

  2. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    Rangers 15, Angels 9: Ryan Dempster was shelled in his Rangers debut, but it didn’t matter because C.J. Wilson was shelled too. Josh Hamilton drove in four. You have to wonder if Wednesday night’s game was some kind of turning point in this race. Rockies 8, Cardinals 2: Homers in four straight games for Josh…

  3. Ryan Dempster gets bombed, Rangers win anyway

    Aug 3, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    Making his Rangers debut, Ryan Dempster surrendered eight runs Thursday against the Angels, yet opposing starter C.J. Wilson was just as bad and Texas won a shootout 15-9. Dempster gave up his eight runs in 4 2/3 innings, while Wilson, an ex-Ranger who left for Anaheim in free agency last winter,yielded eight runs in 5…

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

    Aug 2, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    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…

  5. Angels acquire Zack Greinke from the Brewers

    Jul 27, 2012, 7:42 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    UPDATE: Morosi confirms that it’s Greinke for Segura, Hellweg and Pena. By the way, Segura, Hellweg and Pena were ranked as Angels’ second, fourth and ninth best prospects by Baseball America coming into the season. 7:38 PM Nothing official yet, but Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes that prospect right-handers Ariel Pena and…

  6. Dispatches from Kansas City: “Have you seen George Brett around?”

    downtown fountain

    HardballTalk’s Drew Silva is filing regular stories from this year’s MLB All-Star festivities in Kansas City. Part One. Part Two. Part Three. Part Four. The Royals haven’t won a division title since 1985 and have finished with a winning record just three times since since 1992, which has translated into over 20 years of bad attendance totals at…

  7. C.J. Wilson scratched from All-Star Game, replaced by Jake Peavy

    Jul 8, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    C.J. Wilson

    Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson won’t take part in Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Kansas City because of a blister on his middle finger, and the White Sox just announced that Jake Peavy has replaced him on the American League roster. Peavy was the obvious choice to step in for any AL pitcher. The right-hander ranks fifth…

  8. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

    Major League Baseball is announcing the All-Star rosters for each league this afternoon during an hour-long special on TBS.

  10. Player poll: C.J. Wilson is baseball’s most overrated pitcher

    Jun 8, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    C.J, Wilson

    Every year Sports Illustrated takes a poll of as many players as it can — this year it got 227 of them — and asks them a bunch of questions they’d never answer with attribution. Most overrated this or that, worst umpire, etc. The list for the most overrated pitchers is out now (slide show;…

  11. Haren and Pujols come up big: are the Angels finally turning the corner?

    May 25, 2012, 9:17 AM EDT

    Dan Haren

    At some point you have to hit rock bottom. It’s just that, if you can’t hit anything, even rock bottom looks hard.  But maybe last night the Angels finally turned things around, putting together a game that went the way they hoped things would go often this year. The Pujols signing aside, the team’s strength…

  12. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 23, 2012, 5:59 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  13. Josh Hamilton at it again, slugs home run No. 18

    May 12, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton Reuters

    Another day, another home run for Josh Hamilton. After striking out in his first two at-bats against former teammate C.J. Wilson this afternoon, Hamilton just slugged a solo home run to right in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the Angels at 2-2. He is reaching new levels of ridiculousness. Hamilton now has…

  14. C.J. Wilson will start back-to-back games for Angels

    May 12, 2012, 1:46 AM EDT

    C.J, Wilson

    Cole Hamels isn’t old school. C.J. Wilson is old school. After throwing 22 pitches before a rain delay halted his start Friday, Wilson will get the ball  again Saturday against his former team, the Rangers. Wilson was charged with four runs in one-third of an inning and the loss after coming out tonight. Just one…

  15. Josh Hamilton third ever with 17 homers in 33 games

    May 12, 2012, 12:55 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton hits a home run against the Los Angeles Angels in Arlington, Texas

    Josh Hamilton stole the show from the Yu Darvish-C.J. Wilson matchup on Friday, hitting two more homers as part of the Rangers’ 10-3 win over the Angels. He now has 17 homers on the season. Thanks in part to a lengthy rain delay in the first, the much anticipated pitching showdown was largely a dud.…

  16. C.J. Wilson ready for boos in showdown with Yu Darvish

    May 11, 2012, 2:08 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    C.J. Wilson didn’t leave the Texas Rangers on the best of terms last winter. The then-free agent left-hander was perturbed about the lack of interest from the Rangers, left to sign with their AL West rival Los Angeles Angels, then watched his former team dump $107 million on highly-touted Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish. Then Wilson…

  17. Will Jered Weaver’s no-hitter help Angels turn things around?

    May 3, 2012, 2:35 AM EDT

    weaver-120502.standard[1]

    Jered Weaver couldn’t hold back the tears in the aftermath of his first career no-hitter on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins. After an emotional celebration with his Angels teammates, he hugged his parents and his wife before taking the microphone to address the crowd. “My mom, my dad, my wife, I mean this is…

  18. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…

  19. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 26, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

  20. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 20, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v New York Yankees

    Yankees 7, Twins 6: Curtis Granderson hit three bombs and went 5 for 5. If you just followed this game on Twitter, though, you’d think the storyline of the game was Phil Hughes stinking. The Yankees fans I follow are a surprisingly neurotic bunch despite following the most dominant team in American sports history. But…

  21. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 10, 2012, 5:56 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 11, Mariners 5: According to Google Translate, a literal translation of “run support” in Japanese is サポートを実行する.  I have no idea if that covers the actual concept of run support, but I bet after last night Yu Darvish knows. He started out his major league debut by giving up four runs in the first inning…

  22. Police pull their guns on Torii Hunter … while he’s in his own home

    Torii Hunter

    Torii Hunter‘s Twitter feed got interesting in the past hour: My alarm went off in my house while I was in it. 20mins later I saw cops checking out the scene. Went outside and they drew there guns on me — Torii Hunter (@toriihunter48) April 4, 2012 They didn’t believe I lived here in Newport…

    Rays' Evan Longoria runs to home plate as his teammates crowd around after his 12th inning home run to defeat the Yankees during their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    We have used the word “storylines” around here a whole lot lately. Sorry about that. Until the games start later, it’s all about the narrative.  We can get back to our more natural state — reacting to cool stuff that happens rather than speculating about what will — not long after the Cardinals and Marlins…

  24. Your inaugural Power Rankings

    Apr 4, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

    Joe Girardi

    The only thing sillier than predictions about who wins each division several months before the season ends is judging which team is the best before any games are played.  But hey, that’s never stopped me before, so let’s have a Power Ranking, shall we? And yeah, there is that big of a gap between the…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: The Los Angeles Dodgers. The Big Question: How long until new ownership brings back the magic? Sorry. That was kind…
