    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

  2. Wil Myers hits grand slam off CC Sabathia for first major league home run

    Wil Myers AP

    Wil Myers hit his first major league home run in impressive fashion this afternoon against the Yankees, as he took left-hander CC Sabathia deep for a go-ahead grand slam in the top of the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium. You can watch it right here. It was an opposite-field homer for Myers, which was encouraging…

    Anna Scorecard

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Rockies 12, Reds 4: The Colorado Wrecking Crew: Carlos Gonzalez hit three home runs and drove in six. Troy Tulowitzki hit two of his own. Pedro Villarreal had no idea what hit him. White Sox 7, Mariners 5: You figure if you score five runs in the top of an extra inning that you’re gonna…

  5. Brandon McCarthy headed to disabled list with shoulder problems

    Brandon McCarthy Getty

    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are placing right-hander Brandon McCarthy on the disabled list due to shoulder problems. This confirms a report by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Of course, shoulder issues are nothing new for McCarthy, who gave up six runs on nine hits over 2 2/3 innings in…

  6. CC Sabathia turns in strong effort as Yankees snap five-game losing streak

    CC Sabathia Getty

    After the Yankees lost five in a row — including four at the hands of the crosstown Mets — they turned to ace CC Sabathia last night to stop the bleeding. He was up to the task. Sabathia allowed just one run over 7 1/3 innings and matched a season-high with 10 strikeouts as the…

  7. The Kansas City Royals Power Hour

    May 29, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    St. Louis Cardinals v Kansas City Royals

    The Kansas City Royals did not hit a home run again on Tuesday — heck, they only managed two hits against the Cardinals, a hard double and soft single by Billy Butler — (update: they failed again on Wednesday) and so that means they have two home runs since May 15, both by 439-year-old Miguel…

  8. CC Sabathia says he is “hurting the team”

    May 26, 2013, 10:25 PM EST

    CC Sabathia

    Yankees starter CC Sabathia allowed seven runs in seven innings to the Rays this afternoon, resulting in an 8-3 loss. Though the Yankees had won in Sabathia’s previous three starts, the lefty is winless in the month of May and struggled for the second start in a row. On May 20, Sabathia allowed four runs…

  9. Robinson Cano homers twice in win over Blue Jays

    Robinson Cano Getty

    Robinson Cano homered twice while David Phelps had the longest outing of his career as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Brandon Morrow, who was recently skipped twice in Toronto’s rotation due to neck and back tightness, gave up five runs in five innings in the loss. Cano did…

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

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EST

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

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

    May 10, 2013, 6:45 AM EST

    Luke Scott, Ryan Roberts

    Rays 5, Blue Jays 4: A battle of reigning Cy Young winners decided by a bases loaded walk to an Obama birther. Good times. I watched most of this one. Price and Dickey were OK, but not great. It was, like, the third straight home Rays game I’ve watched where Dick Vitale was noted in…

  12. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Apr 13, 2013, 6:05 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

    Los Angeles Dodgers Kershaw watches solo home run in eighth inning against San Francisco Giants during MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    Dodgers 4, Giants, 0: I watched part of this game with my kids after they got home from school. When they were showing the lineups, they showed Clayton Kershaw‘s career .146 average and my son asked me why it was so low compared to the other players’. I explained to him that pitchers can’t really…

  15. CC Sabathia downplays concerns over diminished velocity

    Apr 1, 2013, 8:01 PM EST

    Sabathia Reuters

    CC Sabathia allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks over five innings in today’s season-opening 8-2 loss to the Red Sox. In doing so, the big southpaw topped out at just 91.7 mph on his fastball (according to Brooks Baseball) and relied heavily on his changeup to get outs. However, he told Mark…

  16. Red Sox storm into first place, beat Yankees 8-2

    Apr 1, 2013, 4:55 PM EST

    Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Jumping all over CC Sabathia, the Red Sox racked up 13 hits and eight walks to beat the Yankees 8-2 in Monday’s opener. A typical Red Sox-Yankees game, it finished about an hour and a half later than the Nationals’ 2-0 win over the Marlins, which also started at 1:05 p.m. EDT. The Red Sox…

  17. Random Opening Day Thoughts while watching the Yankees and Red Sox

    Apr 1, 2013, 1:29 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    I turned the Red Sox-Yankees game on at 1pm. There are other games, but the TV with cable next to my desk doesn’t have the Roku player on it, so this one was just easier to do while still actually pretending to work. We’re not live blogging or anything, but I will be chiming in…

  18. Red Sox name Jon Lester as Opening Day starter

    Mar 27, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    Jon Lester

    Boston announced that Jon Lester will start on Opening Day, making it the third straight season that he’ll get the Game 1 assignment. Lester is coming off his worst season, going 9-14 with a 4.82 ERA after four straight years with an ERA under 3.50, but he’s looked very good all spring with a 0.90…

  20. CC Sabathia pleased with spring debut

    Mar 16, 2013, 1:01 PM EST

    CC Sabathia Getty

    CC Sabathia made his spring debut yesterday against the Marlins and it went about as well as the Yankees could have hoped for. In his first game action since October surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow, Sabathia allowed two runs over five innings while walking one and striking out a pair.…

  21. CC Sabathia will make spring debut Friday

    Mar 10, 2013, 6:01 PM EST

    CC Sabathia

    Yankees lefty CC Sabathia, recovering from off-season surgery to remove a bone spur in his left elbow, will make his spring debut on Friday, reports MLB.com’s Adam Berry: “Felt good today, no problems. I felt strong. I’m ready to go,” Sabathia said. “I’m working pretty hard and trying to throw all my pitches and make…

  22. Pettitte throws a no-hitter

    Feb 26, 2013, 11:39 AM EST

    andy pettitte getty

    Josh, that is: Pettitte’s son Josh, a senior pitcher at Deer Park (Texas) High School, threw a no-hitter on Friday night against perennial Lone Star State powerhouse Boerne Champion HS, striking out 10 and walking just one to fall ever-so-short of a perfect game. Afterward, YES reports, Yankees pitchers such as CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes…

  23. Matt LaPorta “no longer wakes in the morning and wonders if he’ll be able to walk”

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:48 PM EST

    Matt LaPorta

    Matt LaPorta was the seventh overall pick in the 2007 draft and the centerpiece of the trade package the Indians received for CC Sabathia in 2008, but his stock has dropped so much since then that he went unclaimed on waivers in November. That was partly due to LaPorta simply not producing in the majors,…

  24. Michael Pineda could begin throwing off full mound next week

    Michael Pineda Reuters

    After throwing off a half-mound last week for the first time since shoulder surgery, Michael Pineda is close to taking the next step in his rehab process. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said today that he expects Pineda to progress to his first session off a full…

  25. Mariners wager their future on Felix Hernandez’s right arm

    Feb 7, 2013, 4:01 PM EST

    Felix Hernandez

    If you had to bet big on a pitcher for the next seven years, Felix Hernandez seems as good a choice as any. He hasn’t been in Justin Verlander‘s league these last two years, but he also hasn’t been extended to 270 innings per year like Verlander has. And while I think I’d choose Clayton…
