  1. Report: The Phillies to offer Cole Hamels six years, $130 million

    Jul 18, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Jon Heyman reported the other day that the Phillies were prepared to offer “more than $120 million” to Cole Hamels. Now he’s getting more specific: The Phillies are sending signals that they are planning to make an initial offer to star lefthanded pitcher Cole Hamels for about $130 million over six years within the next…

    April

    Angels/Giants 22, Tigers/Braves 0: So, I’m a Braves fan and my girlfriend is a Tigers fans and each of our teams got the crap beat out of them last night. So we agreed that baseball sucks and decided to watch downloaded “Parks and Recreation” episodes instead. Good call, yes? I mean, Mike Trout and Buster…

  3. CC Sabathia shuts down Blue Jays in return from disabled list

    Jul 17, 2012, 11:45 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    Back from the disabled list, CC Sabathia didn’t look like he missed a beat. Then again, the Yankees hardly missed one while he was gone. Sabathia pitched scoreless ball into the seventh inning as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday. The AL East-leading Yankees went 12-6 while their ace was sidelined due…

  4. Report: The Phillies to offer Hamels $120 million. It still won’t be enough.

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    I expect we’ll get a lot of this in the coming weeks then, when Hamels doesn’t sign an extension, it will go quiet. Then, when it comes to free agent time, the numbers will be higher. But for the time being, Jon Heyman reports: The Phillies are said to be planning to offer at least…

  5. Jered Weaver isn’t worried about the $60 million he passed up

    Jul 13, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Jered Weaver

    Jered Weaver could have the top pitcher in this year’s free agent class, overtaking Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke. Instead, he’ll make $70 million over the next four years under the terms of the five-year, $85 million deal he signed with the Angels last August. “I know people still talk about it, and how big…

  6. CC Sabathia throws bullpen session, set for July 17 return

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:01 AM EDT

    sabathia reuters

    On the disabled list with a groin injury, CC Sabathia threw a bullpen session yesterday while at Kauffman Stadium for the All-Star game and reported no problems afterward. Sabathia told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that he’ll be ready to come off the DL when eligible on July 17, adding: “I feel pretty good. My arm…

  7. Franklin Morales knocked around as Yankees take first game of doubleheader

    Jul 7, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Franklin Morales Reuters

    The Yankees defeated the Red Sox 10-8 last night without hitting a home run, just their second win this season without a homer, but they put on another power display this afternoon. Franklin Morales was knocked around for six runs over just 3 1/3 innings as a Bombers cruised to a 6-1 win in the…

  8. Some rumblings about Zack Greinke going to the Braves

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    I call the noise surrounding Zack Greinke possibly being traded to the Braves “rumblings” because they’re something less than rumors. But they’re not nothing. Starting from the notion that (a) the Brewers probably want to trade Greinke; and (b) the Braves could use starting pitching, we go to: I still doubt #Braves would offer Greinke…

  9. Selection Sunday: Your 2012 All-Star rosters are revealed…

    mlb all-star patch

    Major League Baseball is announcing the All-Star rosters for each league this afternoon during an hour-long special on TBS. We’ll update this post as the names come in: The 2012 MLB All-Star Game is next Tuesday, July 10, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

  10. Hiroki Kuroda strikes out 11 in win over White Sox

    Jun 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    Who needs CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte, anyway? OK, well the Yankees do if they hope to go anywhere. But Hiroki Kuroda is holding things down quite nicely at the moment. Kuroda was dominant this afternoon, allowing just three hits over seven shutout innings as part of a 4-0 win over the White Sox. He…

  11. Yankees rule out Andy Pettitte for two months

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    The initial word Wednesday was that Andy Pettitte would miss at least six weeks with the broken left fibula he suffered when hit by a Casey Kotchman liner. The Yankees, though, placed him on the 60-day DL today, suggesting that he’ll be put on a rehab plan to return right around Sept. 1. The Bombers…

  12. Pettitte, Sabathia down. Now what do the Yankees do?

    Jun 27, 2012, 4:52 PM EDT

    Yankees_logo-thumb-125x139-1687

    The Yankees placed CC Sabathia on the disabled list this morning and this afternoon the lost Andy Pettitte for six weeks with a broken ankle. What are the options here, people? Well, certainly Freddy Garcia gets starts until the big man is back. That’s a given. For now the solution for the other vacancy in…

  13. Andy Pettitte suffers fractured ankle, will miss six weeks

    Jun 27, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    Having already placed CC Sabathia on the DL Wednesday, the Yankees suffered an even bigger blow this afternoon: Andy Pettitte will miss at least six weeks due to a fractured left ankle suffered when he was hit by a comebacker in the 5-4 win over the Indians. Pettitte was removed from Wednesday’s game in the…

  14. CC Sabathia on the DL until after the All-Star break with a groin strain

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:24 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    This is not good: CC Sabathia will be placed on the DL with a Grade 1 groin strain. Out until after the All-Star break. — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) June 27, 2012 He apparently felt it, or at least told the team about it, after taking bullpen yesterday. My guess: it happened when Spider Man flew…

  15. The Mets are appealing a scoring decision to try to get R.A. Dickey a no-hitter. They will lose.

    Jun 14, 2012, 9:19 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals

    Lost in the Matt Cain perfect game drama last night was the fact that R.A. Dickey nearly threw a no-hitter of his own. The only blemish: a first inning infield single by B.J. Upton. It was a slow-rolling grounder that Wright tried to barehand and couldn’t.  The Mets, however, are trying to get that single changed…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  17. Don’t expect many strikeouts in Twins-Phillies game tonight

    Jun 12, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    contact poster

    There are lots of big-name starters pitching tonight–Felix Hernandez, Adam Wainwright, Zack Greinke, Johnny Cueto, Madison Bumgarner, CC Sabathia–but to me the most interesting matchup of the day involves a pair of back-of-the-rotation starters in the Minnesota-Philadelphia game. Nick Blackburn of the Twins and Kyle Kendrick of the Phillies have two of the four lowest…

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

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

  19. Phillies confident Roy Halladay’s second opinion will confirm initial diagnosis

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:45 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay Getty

    There was some minor intrigue last week when Roy Halladay saw Dr. David Altchek in New York last week for a second opinion on his strained right lat muscle, but the Phillies aren’t alarmed. Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer was told by Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. that Halladay’s second opinion is expected…

  20. Orioles’ investment in Wei-Yin Chen is paying off early

    May 16, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Wei-Yin Chen

    In an effort to boost a rotation that had MLB’s worst ERA last season the Orioles brought in a pair of starters who’d thrived in Japan, signing Wei-Yin Chen for $11.3 million and Tsuyoshi Wada for $8.15 million. Wada experienced elbow problems early in spring training and will miss the entire season following Tommy John…

  21. Kevin Millwood notches 2,000th strikeout in beating Yankees

    May 13, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Millwood

    One could stump a lot of people with this question: who is the active leader in strikeouts among right-handed pitchers? It will soon by Roy Halladay, who stands at 1,980, but for now, Kevin Millwood is tops. The Mariners veteran fanned six Yankees in a 6-2 win Sunday, upping his career total from 1,998 to…

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

    May 11, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    H

    Nationals 4, Pirates 2: Stephen Strasburg struck out 13 in six innings. The only thing more dominating than he was the Hulk when I went to go see “The Avengers” last night. Upshot: damn fine movie. But the “Dark Night Rises” trailer before it may have been even better. Yes, I realize that I may…

  23. Matt Moore isn’t looking like Rookie of the Year material

    May 6, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    Matt Moore was expected to excel right away for the Rays. He would have been the overwhelming favorite for Rookie of the Year honors if not for Yu Darvish‘s presence on the Rangers, and many thought he had a good shot at the award anyway. Some thought he might quickly overtake CC Sabathia, David Price and Jon…

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

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 4, Padres 1: Madison Bumgarner keeps rolling (7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6K). After the game he explained his recent success by saying “I’m just trying to make pitches.”  I’ve heard that for 30 years and I’m still not quite sure what it means but I always like hearing it for some reason.…

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

    Apr 24, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Texas Rangers

    Yankees 7, Rangers 4: The platonic ideal of a late-dynasty Yankees game: Four hits for Jeter, homer for A-Rod, a CC Sabathia win and a Mariano Rivera save.  In other news, I sorta feel like I wanna be the guy who starts writing the breathless “can Derek Jeter hit .400?” articles. Maybe I’ll do one…
