  1. Miguel Cabrera homers again, inches closer to Triple Crown

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Mets

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera homered again as he continues to inch closer to the AL home run lead, and subsequently another Triple Crown. The homer, a two-run shot off of Mets starter Dillon Gee in the first inning this afternoon, marked #42 on the season, leaving him four shy of Orioles first baseman Chris…

    Aug 22, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 4, Rays 2: Chris Davis homers again. Number 46 on the year. He’s four short of the all-time Orioles record. He tied Rafael Palmiero for the most home homers in Orioles history with 25. Tommy Hunter got the save, as it does appear that Buck Showalter is gonna go with the hot hand now.…

    Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

  4. Chris Davis keeps pace with Miguel Cabrera, hits 45th homer in Orioles win

    Aug 18, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Miguel Cabrera went deep for home run #40 this afternoon, creeping closer and closer to the Major League lead in his quest to obtain a second consecutive Triple Crown. Current leader Chris Davis, though, blasted his 45th home run of the season to keep pace, a two-run blast in the eighth inning against Rockies reliever…

  5. Miguel Cabrera slugs 40th home run, Tigers top Royals

    Max Scherzer surrendered just two runs over eight strong innings and Miguel Cabrera launched a two-run homer as the Tigers defeated the Royals 6-3 on Sunday afternoon at Detroit’s Comerica Park. The performance netted Scherzer his 18th win — he is now 18-1 — and the home run was Cabrera’s 40th. Scherzer fanned four Kansas City…

  6. A time to be young

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    I didn’t realize it at the time, but the late 1970s was an amazing time for young baseball players. I’m arbitrarily choosing 23-and-younger as “young” — but with that age in mind, the late 1970s gave us Hall of Famers Eddie Murray, Andre Dawson, Paul Molitor, Gary Carter, Robin Yount, Ozzie Smith and some pretty…

  7. It begins: Miguel Cabrera vs. Mike Trout, round two

    Aug 10, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Expect a lot of columns of this nature over the next few months until a winner is announced. MLB.com’s Mike Bauman, using the two home runs Miguel Cabrera hit last night and this afternoon as a springboard, writes that Cabrera is “transcending” the AL MVP debate, which is once again boiling down to Cabrera and…

  8. Chris Davis crushes home run #42 of the season, 466 feet away

    Aug 10, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    A day after carrying his Orioles to a ten-inning victory over the Giants, first baseman Chris Davis hit home run #42 of the season, a solo shot, in the eighth inning against reliever Santiago Casilla to bring his team within one run. Unfortunately for the Orioles, however, Casilla and closer Sergio Romo did not allow…

  9. Bruce Bochy Walked Adam Jones to get to Chris Davis. It didn’t work.

    Bruce Bochy

    There are all kinds of ideas that, when looked at up close in objective terms, seem to make a lot of sense. Many of these ideas, however, don’t look so good from 10,000 feet. And certainly don’t look good in hindsight. And yes, this is hindsight. But there is no escaping the fact that, ultimately,…

  10. HBT Daily: Matt Harvey earned the right to pitch that shutout

    Plus my thoughts on the Chase Utley extension and whether Miguel Cabrera has a run at Chris Davis left in him this year.

  11. Miguel Cabrera rejoins lineup after five-day absence

    Aug 5, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera is back at third base for the Tigers on Monday after resting an abdominal strain for five days. Cabrera made a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday against the White Sox and singled in his first at-bat since Tuesday, before immediately being removed for a pinch-runner. The Tigers won all four games while Cabrera was absent…

  12. Chris Davis joined the 40-homer club in style

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    It was never a matter of if, but when Orioles first baseman Chris Davis would join the 40-homer club. The slugger went into the All-Star break with 37, but came back a bit slow, going homerless in his first ten games after the break. But he homered Tuesday, he homered yesterday, and now he has…

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

    Aug 2, 2013, 6:18 AM EDT

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Giants 2, Phillies 1: A few days ago Jonathan Papelbon watched his team lose another game and said “I definitely didn’t come here for this.” Well, they didn’t show up at the ballpark yesterday expecting Papelbon to give up four singles and blow the lead. Again. Cole Hamels‘ eight shutout innings were for naught and…

    Jul 31, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game Two

    Pirates 2, Cardinals 1; Pirates 6, Cardinals 0: First. Place. Pirates. And the best record in baseball. A walkoff in the opener and a beatdown in the nightcap. Six straight losses by the reeling Cardinals, who lost Yadier Molina to the DL on top of it all. And maybe — just maybe — the end…

  16. Why, exactly, do we suspect Bartolo Colon of using PEDs?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics Photo Day

    I woke up Sunday morning to see an interesting tweet from Buster Olney: Bartolo Colon is 40 years old and got the win in the 1998 ASG–which is why a whole lot of people in the game wonder if he’s cheating,again. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 28, 2013 It struck me funny. Because when I…

    Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox

    Rays 3, Red Sox 0: Matt Moore throws his first career shutout and it came in the first game of what, so far this year, is the Rays biggest series. Two hits allowed, one walk four strikeouts as the Rays cut a game off the Sox’ division lead, now sitting a half game back. Reds…

  18. Miguel Cabrera is going to hit .730

    Jul 18, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    The Cespedes Family Barbecue blog plays the same on-pace game lots of other people have ridiculously played with respect to Chris Davis‘ home run totals following his great first half. The difference: Cespedes Family Barbecue is doing it with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. Folks: the season started earlier than normal and the…

  19. Chris Davis quit Twitter

    Jul 17, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Chris Davis quit Twitter last week, shutting down his account just before the All-Star game because, as the MLB home run leader told Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun: “It wasn’t my cup of tea.” Having seen just a little of the steroid-accusing tweets directed at Davis for the past several months I can only…

  20. Jose Fernandez made history with Bob Feller, Doc Gooden

    Jose Fernandez AP

    Like everything else about last night’s All-Star game Jose Fernandez was overshadowed by Mariano Rivera, but the Marlins rookie had a pretty eventful evening too. Fernandez was the youngest All-Star pitcher at age 20 and threw a 1-2-3 sixth inning, setting down former MVP Dustin Pedroia, former MVP Miguel Cabrera, and current MLB home run…

  21. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  22. UPDATE: The American League is now up 3-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    10:52 PM: It’s now 3-0 in the bottom of the eighth, as the AL strung some hits off Craig Kimbrel, capped by Jason Kipnis‘ two out double scoring Sal Perez. And a surprise? Mariano Rivera comes into the game in the bottom of the eighth, not the ninth. Interesting choice. 9:41 PM: The AL extends…

  24. Chris Davis had a bloody blister on his hand during the Home Run Derby

    American League batter Chris Davis, of the Baltimore Orioles, hits a home run during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Home Run Derby in New York

    Chris Davis has hit the most homers in the first half, but he didn’t have a great Home Run Debry. Why? A blister. A bloody one at that: Davis said a blister in his right palm burst. He has it every year. No concern. He usually uses passes batting gloves. Switched to those. — Dan…

  25. It’s Cespedes vs. Harper in the Home Run Derby final

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:24 PM EDT

    National League batter Bryce Harper, of the Washington Nationals, watches his home run during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Home Run Derby in New York

    In the Home Run Derby your first two round totals determine whether you make the finals. Yoenis Cespedes had 17 in the first, so he was definitely going to make it. His opponent wasn’t clear, though. Now it is, with Bryce Harper hitting eight homers in round two. Chris Davis didn’t — in fact, he…
