  1. Pouliot’s postseason award picks: American League

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:18 AM EST

    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…

  2. When the standouts don’t stand out

    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…

    After being shut down earlier this week, Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion underwent successful surgery on his left wrist yesterday. Encarnacion missed some time after tweaking his wrist earlier this month, but he was able to return to the lineup over the weekend. 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. Here’s the replay from MLB.com, with Gary Thorne on the call:…

    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.

    Miguel Cabrera Getty

    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. According to Bobby NIghtengale of MLB.com, Cabrera said after today’s…

    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”…

    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…

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

    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…
