  2. Here come the Chris Davis PED suspicions

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:44 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Aaron noted just how crazy a season Chris Davis is having. And when you have a weekend like he had against a team with a big national profile like the Yankees, it sort of puts all of that in relief. And that, sadly, has brought out the PED suspicions. From Baltimore Sports Report: A simple…

  3. National sportswriter says … Dustin Pedroia is your AL MVP thus far

    Dustin Pedroia Getty

    From the man who picked the Philadelphia Phillies to finish ahead of the Braves and the Kansas City Royals over the Tigers, we get this: Dustin Pedroia is my first-half AL MVP, as I told @FOXSportsDet today. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 1, 2013   We don’t know his reasoning yet.

    Chris Davis Getty

    Chris Davis went deep again last night, giving him 31 homers through the Orioles’ first 83 games. Not only does that put Davis on pace for 61 homers this season, he has the most homers through 83 team games since 2001, when Barry Bonds had 39 and Luis Gonzalez had 35. Here’s the all-time leaderboard…

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Padres 2: An improbable walkoff grand slam from Jeff Mathis caps an improbable winning month from the Miami Marlins. 15-10 in June for the worst team in baseball. Not bad. Oh, and Mathis’ homer was the 3,000th in team history. Pirates 2, Brewers 1: A 14th inning walkoff win for the hottest and…

  6. Russell Martin helps Pirates walk off in 14th for ninth consecutive win

    Milwaukee Brewers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    After a rain delay halted this afternoon’s series finale between the Pirates and Brewers by nearly two and a half hours, the two teams battled through 14 innings to decide a winner. The Pirates, entering the game with baseball’s best record, walked off in the bottom half of the 14th when Russell Martin snuck a…

  7. Chris Davis hit his 29th and 30th homers of the season

    Jun 29, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    If it weren’t for Miguel Cabrera, Chris Davis would have been all we’d have talked about this season. The Orioles first baseman’s ridiculous season continued tonight as he mashed two home runs: a three-run shot in the bottom of the first off of Yankees starter David Phelps, and a two-run shot in the bottom of…

  8. Video: Prince Fielder hits home run off catwalk at Tropicana Field

    Prince Fielder AP

    Tigers slugger Prince Fielder hit a doozy of a home run last night at Tropicana Field. Facing Rays left-hander Cesar Ramos in the top of the eighth inning, he turned on one and launched it off the catwalk in right field. Now that’s a moonshot. Chris Iott of MLive.com notes that Fielder is the first…

  9. Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder power Max Scherzer to 12-0

    Jun 28, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Miguel Cabrera hit two home runs and drove in three runs and Prince Fielder added a two-run homer of his own to back starter Max Scherzer, who improved to 12-0. Cabrera bumped his Triple Crown stats to .377/24/81. He leads the Majors in average and RBI, but trails Orioles first baseman Chris Davis (28) in…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

Entering tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks, Votto was hitting…

    Depending on who does what tonight, this could change, but at the moment, Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout are #1 and #2 in Wins Above Replacement at the moment, according to FanGraphs. Cabrera is at 4.4 and Trout is at 4.3. Cabrera, who achieved baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years, beat out Trout for…

  13. Chris Davis is ridiculous

    Jun 19, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Chris Davis‘ insane season continues apace. Today the Orioles’ first baseman — playing DH — hit two two-run homers and a ground rule double to collect five RBI as the Orioles trounced the Tigers 13-3 in Detroit. That’s 26 homers on the season for Davis, including four in his last four games. His season line…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 2, Mets 1: A three-hour and fifty-two minute rain delay? Really? Despite that, Dillon Gee shut the Braves out through eight and a third and drove in the Mets’ only run. And despite that he gave up a walkoff two-run homer to Freddie Freeman just before 1:30 AM. Now they play a day-night doubleheader. Expect many…

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: Jose Valverde was handed a 2-0 lead in the ninth with a runner on and promptly coughed it up by surrendering a homer to Lorenzo Cain. Phil Coke added his own brand of kerosene to the fire on the 10th as Eric Hosmer singled in the winning run. After the game…

    Gallup has predicted that Jeff Francoeur will lead the balloting. Karl Rove says that these results are skewed. But this is what MLB has so far for the first round of All-Star balloting, with leaders by position, with vote totals: First Base: Chris Davis, 1,176,016 Second Base: Robinson Cano 1,235,230 Third Base: Miguel Cabrera, 1,500,165 Shortstop: Elvis Andrus, 727,555…

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  19. Miguel Cabrera inching towards AL home run lead

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers - Game Two

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera sent a grand slam deep into the left field seats in the fourth inning this afternoon against the Orioles, his 17th home run on the season. Current leader Chris Davis, sitting on 19 homers, did not leave the confines of Camden Yards today. Cabrera already leads the American League in…

    There’s no stopping the Orioles’ offense. After Max Scherzer appeared poised to improve to 8-0 last night, the Orioles came roaring back for four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against Jose Valverde to secure a dramatic 7-5 walk-off victory. Nick Markakis led off the inning with a solo homer and was followed…

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  22. Bust no more: Carlos Gomez has been one of the best players in baseball

    May 28, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Carlos Gomez continued his breakout season yesterday by smacking two homers against the Twins, who acquired him from the Mets as a prospect in the Johan Santana deal and traded him to the Brewers for J.J. Hardy two disappointing seasons later. Gomez was a bust in Minnesota, hitting .248 with a .645 OPS in 290…

    Chris Davis Getty

    Chris Davis tore through the first couple of weeks of the season before slowing down a bit, but he’s terrorizing pitchers once again. Davis went 3-for-5 with his major-league leading 16th homer last night as the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays 10-6 in Toronto. Davis’ solo shot in the third inning was one of four…

    Miguel Cabrera

    This is a quick look at the very best and worst each major league lineup spot has to offer this year. Posted along with each line is the player most responsible. We’ll start out with the good before moving on to the bad. 1. Reds: .292/.442/.517, 9 HR, 37 R, 20 RBI, 5 SB (Shin-Soo…

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…
