  2. The Orioles’ improbable season marches on

    Oct 6, 2012, 12:01 AM EDT

    For most of the regular season, the surprising success of the Orioles was downplayed because of a negative run-differential and their penchant for winning one-run and extra-inning games. Going into tonight’s Wild Card game against the Rangers, most prognosticators didn’t give the Orioles much of a chance because they were using left-hander Joe Saunders against…

    Oct 3, 2012, 10:11 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda, Derek Jeter

    By losing 4-1 to the Rays, the Orioles settled things in the American League playoff picture this evening. The Yankees will face the wild card winner, either the Orioles or Rangers, in one ALDS and the A’s will get the Tigers in the other. The Orioles will travel to Texas to play a one-game playoff…

  5. Nick Markakis at least three weeks from returning

    Whatever odds Nick Markakis had of playing for the Orioles again this season took a hit today, as the team announced that he won’t have the pin removed from his fractured thumb as hoped. Instead that will have to wait another week, which likely means Markakis is at least three weeks from potentially seeing game…

    Sep 27, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles Machado rounds the bases after hitting a home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during an MLB game in Baltimore

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2: Bombs away. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each had two homers and the O’s hit seven in all, keeping pace with the Yankees, who maintain their one and a half game lead.

    The Yankees and Orioles kept rolling tonight, maintaining one game of separation in the AL East. The Yankees beat the A’s 2-1 in 10 innings on a Russell Martin home run. Rafael Soriano blew a 1-0 lead in the top of the ninth by serving up a home run on a slider to Brandon Moss,…

    Sep 21, 2012, 8:53 PM EDT

    Jarrod Parker

    When you’re hot, everything turns into a hit. Ichiro Suzuki had his one-hopper up the middle drop into Jarrod Parker‘s shirt for an infield single Friday night in the game against the A’s. Here’s the video. It was Ichiro’s 10th hit in his last 13 at-bats. One would think a ball would have been much…

    Today Buster Olney speculates about where Josh Hamilton may wind up.  He runs through any number of teams, notes that there are either fit or payroll problems, and ultimately lands on the Tigers, noting that (a) they have a spot in left field for Hamilton: and (b) they have recently been something of a free…

  10. CC Sabathia disappoints as Rays down Yankees

    Sep 14, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia is the game’s highest-paid hurler, but David Price has pretty obviously supplanted him as the AL East’s best pitcher. Tampa Bay’s ace picked up his league-leading 18th win Friday as the Rays topped the Yankees 6-4. Price allowed two runs in seven innings to become the AL’s first to 18 victories. Sabathia gave…

  11. Video of the Day: All Yankees analysis is over. Seriously, we just need to stop now.

    Jonah Keri pointed this out on Twitter a few minutes ago. I dare say I haven’t seen analysis this good in all of my days. Really, we just need to stop now and let the season wind down, because all that can be said has been said. Including a bit about CC Sabathia having “gained…

  12. Ivan Nova in, Freddy Garcia out of Yankee rotation

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    Freddy Garcia

    It’s back to mop-up duty for Freddy Garcia. The Yankees’ 35-year-old right-hander, who was initially bounced from the rotation at the end of April, is returning to the pen now to make room for Ivan Nova. Nova, who is recovering from rotator cuff inflammation, will face the Rays on Saturday. He last pitched on Aug.…

    Nick Markakis

    Nick Markakis had pins inserted into his broken left thumb during surgery Tuesday morning and is still hoping to play next month if the Orioles reach the postseason. “Originally, they thought they were going to put a plate in there,” manager Buck Showalter said. “They were concerned about the range of motion. They were able to…

  14. David Price cleared to start Friday against Yankees

    Sep 11, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    david price blue getty

    David Price skipped his Saturday start against the Rangers because of shoulder soreness, but the Rays left-hander threw a bullpen session today and declared himself ready to take his next turn in the rotation. That will come Friday against the Yankees, in New York and matched up with CC Sabathia, which is a helluva way…

    Orioles Britton rubs his face as he leaves the field in their MLB American League baseball game against the Yankees in Baltimore

    There was nothing settled in Baltimore this weekend: the Yankees crushed the Orioles 13-3 on Sunday to earn a split of the four-game series and maintain a one-game lead in the AL East. Curtis Granderson and Derek Jeter homered in the rout. The Yankees took a 5-0 lead in a four-run fourth inning that included…

    Horrible news here for the first-place Orioles. According to Richard Justice of MLB.com, outfielder Nick Markakis has been diagnosed with a broken bone in the middle of his left thumb and is expected to be sidelined for the next six weeks. Markakis suffered the injury in the sixth inning Saturday after getting struck with a…

  18. Yunel Escobar has career game in leading Jays past Yanks

    Aug 29, 2012, 5:18 PM EDT

    Yunel Escobar

    Yunel Escobar had a homer, three doubles and five RBI Wednesday in the Blue Jays’ 8-5 defeat of the Yankees. The final double, which scored two runs in the ninth, came on a ball that Andruw Jones should have caught. He had it in his glove as he attempted the sliding catch, but he lost…

  19. The Dodgers inquired about Mark Teixeira and CC Sabathia

    Aug 28, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia Getty

    Because we didn’t already think the Dodgers were crazy enough, Joel Sherman reports today that they asked the Yankees about Mark Teixeira and CC Sabathia. This was all part of a plan in which they basically called everyone asking if they wanted to unload their albatross contracts. Because apparently now, trading for highly inefficient contracts…

  20. CC Sabathia dispatches Indians in return from disabled list

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia never thought his elbow issue was of major concern, and he dealt a blow to anyone who doubted him by holding the Indians to one run in 7 1/3 innings and striking out nine in a victory Friday night. Sabathia allowed just four hits in improving to 13-3 on the season. An Asdrubal…

  21. UPDATE: Ivan Nova to miss a start after feeling “a grab” in his shoulder

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    UPDATE: Sorry for the confusion. I saw one reporter who had Nova going to the DL. Everyone else is reporting that he’ll merely miss a start. 5: 02 PM: Ivan Nova had a bad night last night, and now it’s being reported that he felt “a grab” in his shoulder during his six-run, six-inning performance…

  22. Joba Chamberlain could be on the way to the minors

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Toronto Blue Jays

    CC Sabathia is coming back? That means someone has to go down or out. And one possibility for that is Joba Chamberlain: With CC Sabathia due back from the disabled list on Friday, the Yankees will have to make a roster move to open a spot for their returning ace. According to a source, the…

  23. CC Sabathia throws bullpen session, set to return Friday

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia Getty

    CC Sabathia had no problems with his sore elbow during a bullpen session yesterday and afterward declared himself ready to come off the disabled list when eligible Friday. Joe Girardi stopped short of making the same proclamation, saying only “it’s possible” when asked about Sabathia feeling ready to return Friday versus the Indians. Assuming he…

    CC Sabathia Getty

    UPDATE: According to Jack Curry of YES Network, today’s bullpen session went off without a hitch. Sabathia is scheduled to throw another one Tuesday, but he was “emphatic” in saying he’ll return next Friday. 11:45 AM: CC Sabathia landed on the disabled list last week due to left elbow soreness, but he’s aiming to return…

  25. Felix Hernandez: MLB’s best young pitcher in 20 years

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    That’s pretty defensible, right. Felix Hernandez debuted at 19, and while he wasn’t great right away — in fact, he was pretty disappointing his first three years — he’s provided a ton of value to the Mariners in going 96-72 with a 3.17 ERA in 230 career starts to date. Baseball-reference WAR rates him as…
