  2. Catchers are suffering concussions at an alarming rate

    Aug 21, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    Joe Mauer

    Twins catcher Joe Mauer was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list yesterday after taking multiple foul tips off his mask in Monday’s game led to dizziness 24 hours later and as LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune notes Mauer is the fifth catcher currently on the concussion DL. Mauer joins Alex…

  3. Astros calling up catcher prospect Max Stassi

    Aug 20, 2013, 1:43 PM EST

    Max Stassi

    Catcher has been one of the Astros’ few strengths this season, as Jason Castro has hit .270 with 14 homers and an .802 OPS to rank among baseball’s best, but with backup Carlos Corporan sidelined by a concussion Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports that Houston is calling up catcher prospect Max Stassi. Stassi has hit…

    Aug 13, 2013, 6:42 AM EST

    Cleveland Indians v Minnesota Twins

    Twins 3, Indians 0: In only his second major league start Andrew Albers spins a two-hit shutout on a mere 102 pitches. This goes with his eight shutout innings in his first start. As a person who has been writing about baseball professionally for nearly four years, I can tell you with absolute certainty and…

  5. UPDATE: Yu Darvish loses the no-hitter on a Carlos Corporan home run

    Aug 12, 2013, 4:25 PM EST

    Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish delivers a pitch against the Houston Astros in the second inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Houston

    UPDATE: And just like that it’s gone. Astros catcher Carlos Corporan just hit a one-out homer to right. No doubt about. Just yanked it out of the park. We now return you to your regularly scheduled ordinary game. Well, apart from the part where Darvish does have 15 strikeouts. Which is pretty darn good. 4:19…

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

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  7. Tigers bang out 17 runs, 21 hits in rout of Astros

    May 4, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera walks back to the dugout after being called out on strikes to give the San Francisco Giants the World Series during Game 4 of the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    This is going to dent the ol’ run differential. The Astros entered the night having allowed 51 more runs than they have scored, among the worst in baseball along with the Blue Jays and Marlins. The Astros are comfortably in first place in that department after getting pummeled by the Detroit Tigers 17-2 tonight, bumping…

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

    Apr 30, 2013, 6:27 AM EST

    Brandon Moss

    Athletics 10, Angels 8: Nineteen innings. Six and a half hours. Sixteen pitchers, including A’s Opening Day starter Brett Anderson who pitched five and a third innings out of the pen. The Angels, for their part, had two pitchers — Tommy Hanson who started it and Jerome Williams who came in later — each of…

  9. Yu Darvish not quite perfect, but plenty close enough

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:18 PM EST

    Yu Darvish

    It looked like destiny was on his side when Yu Darvish made such quick work of Jason Castro and Carlos Corporan to start the ninth inning Tuesday against Astros. Seconds later, destiny rolled right between his legs into center field. In the end, the pitch count may have gotten to Darvish. Not that he seemed…

  10. Astros decline $4 million option on Chris Snyder

    Oct 31, 2012, 3:49 PM EST

    Chris Snyder

    Chris Snyder hit just .176 in 76 games for the Astros, so not surprisingly they’ve declined his $4 million option for 2013 and will instead pay a $500,000 buyout. Not so long ago Snyder was an established, young starting catcher, but his health and production have both been issues since leaving the Diamondbacks in mid-2010.…

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees - Game One

    Did you know that there is a 100% correlation between watching football and death? Really, every single person who has ever watched a football game has either died or will, without question, die in the future.  Stop the dying, people. Stop watching football.  It’s for your own good. In case you haven’t decided to turn…
