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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

  24. Starling Marte: leadoff-hitting strikeout machine

    Apr 26, 2014, 4:47 PM EDT

    Starling Marte

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

  25. B.J. Upton made some mechanical adjustments

    Feb 21, 2014, 10:30 PM EDT

    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.
