  2. Adam Dunn: “people would be batting .400” if batting averages weren’t reported

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince reported on the Blue Jays’ use of a “performance coach” who professes that “batting average is Satan”. Somehow, that isn’t the most interesting quote in the article. In talking about how fans and players have moved further and further away from their reliance on batting average, Adam Dunn‘s name inevitably came up.…

  3. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and hightlights

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:04 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…

    New York Mets' Valdespin celebrates after hitting grand-slam walk-off home run off Los Angeles Dodgers' Wall in MLB game in New York

    Mets 7, Dodgers 3: Jordany Valdespin with a walkoff grand slam. See, good things happen when he doesn’t try to bunt. Reds 1, Cubs 0: Mat Latos tossed seven shutout innings and Broxton and Chapman finished it off. Tough luck for Jeff Samardzija who struck out eight in six innings, but he’s gonna have to get used…

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Michael Bourn landed on the disabled list last week after he had his right hand stepped on by White Sox reliever Matt Thornton during a head-first slide into first base and required five stitches in his index finger, but he’s getting closer to rejoining the Indians’ lineup.

  7. Barry Zito is a reborn Christian, “really excited” about owning and shooting guns

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Barry Zito Getty

    Barry Zito got tagged with some sort of hippie/playboy/zen master stereotype when he came up with the A’s. Since then most of that has been obscured by talk of his contract, his pitching struggles and then his nice little comeback the past season or so. But his interview in the May “GQ” reveals a much different Barry…

However, the White Sox announced this morning that Viciedo has been placed on the 15-day disabled list while Blake Tekotte has been recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. Oblique injuries can be particularly tricky, so it’s understandable that…

    Dayan Viciedo exited yesterday’s game with an oblique strain, but for now at least the White Sox left fielder is hoping to stay off the disabled list.

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out.

    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…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Today was supposed to be the first day that I posted ATH later than I used to. Really: I was going to restore life balance with this one. I watched the Braves game last night but rather than stay up another hour and a half or two hours getting most of the recaps done, I…

    Adam Dunn

    Ervin Santana served up an AL-high 39 homers in 178 innings last season on the way to posting a 5.16 ERA that convinced the Angels to dump him on the Royals.

    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…

  25. Royals set lineup has a disastrous debut

    Apr 1, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Mike Moustakas

    Despite facing a very tough left-hander in Chris Sale, the Royals had Mike Moustakas batting cleanup today. Why? Because Ned Yost wants a set lineup. Pay no attention to those splits behind the curtain. That set lineup: LF Alex Gordon SS Alcides Escobar DH Billy Butler 3B Moustakas C Salvador Perez 1B Eric Hosmer CF…
