  3. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

    Major League Baseball is revealing the 2012 Gold Glove Award recipients tonight during an hour-long program on ESPN2. We’ll list this year’s winners below as they are announced.

  5. Gold Glove finalists announced

    Oct 29, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

    Carlos Gonzalez Getty

    Losers of nine straight games entering play tonight, the Rockies are *literally limping to the finish line. Carlos Gonzalez is out of the starting lineup tonight for the sixth time in the past seven games due to a strained left hamstring. According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, Gonzalez underwent an MRI today and…

  7. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    Rays 6, Rangers 0: That, my friends, is B.J. Upton.  Three homers for big brother and a two-hit shutout for James Shields. This will make Rays fans feel really good until Texas bounces them easily in the division series again. Marlins 8, Nationals 0: The Nats have not won a game since they shut down Stephen…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  9. Adrian Beltre homers three times in rout of Orioles

    Aug 22, 2012, 11:01 PM EDT

    Adrian Beltre

    Adrian Beltre went yard three times, including twice in a nine-run fourth inning, in the Rangers’ 12-3 defeat of the Orioles on Wednesday. Beltre and Mitch Moreland both knocked in five runs in the game. Moreland had a grand slam as part of the huge fourth inning. It was the first career three-homer game for…

  10. Carlos Gonzalez placed on the bereavement list following the death of his grandfather

    Aug 18, 2012, 7:53 PM EDT

    carlos gonzalez ap

    Thoughts are with Carlos Gonzalez and his family. The outfielder revealed through his personal Twitter feed this afternoon that his grandfather passed away on Friday. He’s been placed on MLB’s bereavement list to attend the funeral, with Charlie Blackmon getting the call from Triple-A Colorado Springs to fill the vacancy on the Rockies’ active 25-man…

  11. We can’t let Melky Cabrera have the batting title/crown/award!

    Aug 18, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    Melky Cabrera

    In the name of all that is holy! Kenny Albert and Tim McCarver made it very clear during Saturday’s FOX Red Sox-Yankees broadcast that we can’t allow Melky Cabrera to win the NL batting title after his steroids suspension this week. In fact, it seems we need a new rule to prevent players who receive…

    Yankees Kuroda pitches to Rangers in MLB game in New York

    It was shutout Tuesday, apparently. Let’s tally the goose eggs: Yankees 3, Rangers 0: Hiroki Kuroda with the two-hit shutout. He was masterful, but man, there were a lot of ill-advised Texas swings in the parts of this one I watched. Either Kuroda had them more fooled than someone on the foolingest day of his life…

  13. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  14. Mark Trumbo is your Home Run Derby favorite

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    With Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium serving as the battleground, Monday’s Home Run Derby figured to yield fewer souveniers than usual. Kauffman is one of the game’s tough home run parks. Using Stats Inc. park factors, only Minnesota’s Target Field played tougher on home runs for AL parks  from 2009-11 and that only slightly. It’s played…

  15. Tony La Russa adds Carlos Gonzalez to National League All-Star lineup with voted-in starters

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Tony La Russa officially named Matt Cain his All-Star starter at this afternoon’s press conference and also unveiled the National League lineup, with Carlos Gonzalez as the designated hitter/leadoff man and the past two MVPs, Ryan Braun and Joey Votto, batting third and fourth: 1. Carlos Gonzalez, DH 2. Melky Cabrera, CF 3. Ryan Braun,…

  16. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen is going up against the big boys. The Pirates center fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, was named as Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement in Monday’s Home Run Derby. McCutchen is tied for sixth in the National League with 16 homers this season, putting him on pace to smash his previous high…

  17. 2012 midseason awards: NL MVP

    Jul 7, 2012, 12:50 AM EDT

    Joey Votto

    There’s no doubt who has been the National League’s best hitter to date, what with Joey Votto leading the circuit in both on-base percentage and slugging. As for the best player, that’s still a difficult question. Here’s the top 10 in OPS: 1.082 – Joey Votto (1B Cin): .345/.464/.619, 14 HR, 47 RBI, 4 SB…

  18. Chipper Jones replaces Matt Kemp on NL All-Star team

    Jul 3, 2012, 5:43 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    It’s a case of very unusual timing, what with Chipper Jones currently leading the NL Final Vote, but the National League announced Tuesday that Jones would replace the injured Matt Kemp on the All-Star team. The most recent reports had Chipper holding a slim lead in the Final Vote balloting over Cardinals third baseman David…

  19. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  20. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby. Kemp plans to take part in the contest, even though he’s still expected to be on the disabled list as he continues his recovery…

  22. Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd says Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer will not be traded

    Jun 27, 2012, 9:16 PM EDT

    The Rockies are currently 17 games under the .500 mark and hovering just above the very bottom of the National League West, but don’t expect them to be sellers at this year’s July 31 trade deadline. According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, Rockies general manager Dan O’Dowd insisted Wednesday that outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Michael…

  23. Carlos Gonzalez aiming to return to lineup Wednesday

    Jun 19, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    cargo getty

    Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez hasn’t played in a game since Saturday due to a strained right knee and is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday night in Philadelphia. But he’s getting really close. According to beat writer Troy Renck of the Denver Post, Gonzalez has begun to experience significant improvement in his knee and…

  24. NL All-Star balloting update: Melky in, Braun out

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bochy's Angels?

    Just like in Monday’s AL balloting update, one spot in the National League projected All-Star lineup changed hands this week. Melky Cabrera moved ahead of Ryan Braun into third place in the outfield. Cabrera is deserving based on his performance this season, but one can’t help but notice that Giants fans have been awfully generous…

  25. The Rockies should trade Carlos Gonzalez?

    Jun 18, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    That’s the thinking of New York Post columnist Joel Sherman. His belief: the Rockies might be better off having more young parts than having the duo of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez tied up at $36 million-$40 million from 2015-17. Personally, I’m not sold. For one thing, Gonzalez is likely more valuable in Colorado than…
