    Yankees Kuroda pitches to Rangers in MLB game in New York

    It was shutout Tuesday, apparently. Let’s tally the goose eggs: Yankees 3, Rangers 0: Hiroki Kuroda with the two-hit shutout. He was masterful, but man, there were a lot of ill-advised Texas swings in the parts of this one I watched. Either Kuroda had them more fooled than someone on the foolingest day of his life…

    San Diego Padres v Cincinnati Reds

    On Monday night Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco was ejected for poking umpire Chad Fairchild in the chest protector after Fairchild called a ball on a pitch that Mesoraco thought was a strike, and then bumping him before leaving the field.  You can’t do that, see, and today Mesoraco was suspended for three games.

Sulbaran. Broxton signed a one-year,…
