  3. So, what’s the market for Billy Butler anyway?

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Josh Phegley, Jerry Meals, Billy Butler

    This kind of doubles as a “what’s the market for Kendrys Morales?” post, too. Anyway, the Royals have let it be known that Billy Butler is available, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Had they done this a year ago, they would have been in line for a nice return. Now? Probably not so much. Butler…

  4. For Tigers and Dodgers, injuries make you wonder what could have been

    Cardinals starter Michael Wacha went home with the NLCS MVP hardware, but perhaps it should have gone to Joe Kelly. Kelly started off the series by drilling shortstop Hanley Ramirez — one of the most productive players during the regular season, and a godsend to the Dodgers in the NLDS — in the ribs with…

  5. The Uehara Phenomenon

    Oct 18, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    So, you probably know that this year Boston’s Koji Uehara proved to be harder to reach base against than any pitcher in the history of baseball. That’s a pretty good thing. Here’s the list of the Top 10 WHIPs in baseball history, pitching at least 50 innings: 1. Koji Uehara, 2013, 0.565 2. Dennis Eckersley,…

  7. Pouliot’s postseason award picks: American League

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Evan Longoria made his case for moving up the MVP ballot with his big game Monday, but while it’s safe to say the Rays wouldn’t have reached the postseason without him, he was still no better than the AL’s third best third baseman. It was, in fact, the year of the third baseman in the…

  8. When the standouts don’t stand out

    Sep 30, 2013, 12:30 AM EDT

    Paul Goldschmidt

    Obviously, offense in the year 2013 isn’t what it used to be. Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt led the National League this year with a .954 OPS and was tied with Pedro Alvarez for first with 36 homers. It’s hardly a knock against him to say that those aren’t the totals we’re used to seeing leading the…

Times that his team’s poor season, and the successful season…

    Alex Cobb Getty

    After using 11 pitchers in 18 innings last night, the Rays needed a big outing from Alex Cobb this afternoon.

While he initially planned to play through the discomfort, he changed his…

    Orioles slugger Chris Davis launched his 51st home run of the season Tuesday night at Fenway Park. It was a bomb over the center field wall and it pushed Davis past Brady Anderson for the O’s single-season home run record. Anderson hit 50 in 1996.

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hadn’t homered since August 28, which created a bit of tension as Miguel Cabrera attempts to win another Triple Crown. Cabrera, though, has played once since the 30th, so the four-homer gap between the two remained until tonight, when Davis blasted #48 off of White Sox starter John Danks in…

    Tigers manager Jim Leyland did not include third baseman Miguel Cabrera in tonight’s starting lineup against the Indians, a day after the slugger was taken out of the game early with continued abdominal discomfort. It has been an ongoing issue for Cabrera, who hasn’t been able to make it through an entire game since August…

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera left Thursday’s game with “abdominal discomfort” but felt good enough tonight to make the start at the hot corner against the Indians. Unfortunately, he was only able to go two innings tonight due to abdominal irritation, striking out in his only plate appearance. Andy Dirks took over at third base.…

    Miguel Cabrera gave the Tigers quite the scare this afternoon when he was forced to exit with abdominal discomfort following an awkward slide into second base in the fifth inning, but just like with his recent nagging injuries, he plans to play through the pain.

    Athletics 14, Tigers 4: We had this game on for a bit, got bored and decided to watch some random stuff we had recorded. When the show ended we went back to the game to see the A’s up 14-1. Allison let’s out a big “oh for f***’s sake!” and quickly turns on the “Awesom-O”…
