    A lesson in why you do not want to have to face the Mariners in the wild card game.

  4. Alex Gordon and the M-V-P chants

    Alex Gordon Getty

    Every time Alex Gordon steps to the plate at Kauffman Stadium these days, fans chant, “M-V-P, M-V-P,” which is fascinating on so many levels.

    I don’t believe in destiny. I don’t believe in fate. I’m even pretty skeptical about momentum and the hot hand. But these Royals are testing my beliefs.

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

    In the future, every pitcher will toss seven shutout innings for fifteen minutes — Andy Warhol.

    If you had money on “Shane Greene and Chris Capuano would go back-to-back shutting down the Detroit Tigers in August, keeping the Yankees in the playoff picture,” the casino management would like to have a word with you.

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

    Indians celebration

    The Tribe walks off against Texas, MadBum was dominant and V-Mart goes yard again. Note: if you were not a baseball fan, you would have no idea what any of the stuff in the previous sentence meant. It’s just barely English, yet we all get it. Cool, huh?

  10. Astros “looking to move” slugger Chris Carter

    The 44-64 Astros could jump into this seller-friendly market before Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Houston is “looking to move” first baseman and designated hitter Chris Carter.

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

    Marlins celebration

    A three run lead and Rafael Soriano on the hill usually leads to an un-tuck fest. Not last night it didn’t.

  12. Play of the Day: Tom Koehler takes a liner off his back, Adeiny Hechavarria catches the rebound

    Jul 26, 2014, 9:35 PM EST

    Tom Koehler

    Tom Koehler didn’t get an out in the most comfortable way, but he got an out nonetheless.

    This was Jacob deGrom’s best performance since he played Jim Morrison in that Oliver Stone Doors flick.

  14. Plenty of scouts in attendance for David Price’s start against the Astros

    David Price

    The Rays are expected to shop David Price, and plenty of scouts are in attendance for Friday’s start against the Astros.

    Puig Out

    I took the kids to the Dodgers-Reds game and they saw Yasiel Puig flop about three feet from the second base bag on a caught stealing. Still: beats working.

    Jordan Zimmermann

    Jordan Zimmermann was on point and the Nationals have won seven of their past nine and are now tied for first place.

    The Giants and Jays keep rolling merrily along. And Travis Wood [all together now] helps his own cause.

    Phillies celebrate

    Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

  19. Starling Marte: leadoff-hitting strikeout machine

    Apr 26, 2014, 4:47 PM EST

    Starling Marte

    At least a Pirates hitter is leading the majors in something.

  20. B.J. Upton made some mechanical adjustments

    Feb 21, 2014, 10:30 PM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    B.J. Upton became one of 12 players since the start of the millennium to post an OPS below .560 while taking at least 400 trips to the plate. Upton, who established himself as one of baseball’s most dynamic players while with the Rays, could never get it going in the first year of a five-year,…

  21. Cris Carter said he gave Alex Rodriguez a talking-to

    Oct 3, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Yankees' Rodriguez stands at third base in the eighth inning of their MLB American League baseball game against the Red Sox in Boston

    This is fun. Ex-NFL player Cris Carter ran into A-Rod down in Florida when A-Rod was getting ready to come back this year and they had a little chat. Carter said that he was concerned about PEDs and A-Rod’s P.R. problems and how his example impacts children and stuff. Then it got good. He said…

  22. The Astros lost their final 15 games

    Sep 29, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    Chris Carter

    The Yankees brought half a team to Houston, but that was enough to get a three-game sweep and conclude the Astros’ historic season with 15 straight losses. They’re the first team since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders to lose their final 15 games. The Astros ended up 51-111. They’re the 12th team since 1900 ever to…

  23. Andy Pettitte pitches the Yankees past the Astros in his final start

    Sep 28, 2013, 10:05 PM EST

    Andy Pettitte Getty

    Yankees starter Andy Pettitte shut down the Astros tonight in his final start of his career. The left-hander allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five in a complete game effort. The lone Astros run came on a Chris Carter ground out in the fourth inning. Second baseman Robinson Cano…

  24. It’s great to have the Pirates back

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    At some point in the eighth inning, I remember going out to concourse of old Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta and watching Atlanta Braves fans slowly shuffle toward the exits and their cars and another long baseball off-season. It is all well and good to say that baseball fans should stay to the end but…

  25. Indians top Astros to maintain lead as the AL’s second Wild Card

    Sep 21, 2013, 8:52 PM EST

    Houston Astros v Cleveland Indians

    The Indians entered tonight’s action with a half-game lead over the Rangers for the second Wild Card in the American League. The two teams have been trending in opposite directions, with the Rangers having lost nine of their last ten contests, while the Indians have won seven of their last nine. The Tribe sent lefty…
