    Sep 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

    Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was shut down last Tuesday after complaining of shoulder fatigue and hasn’t pitched since. But his return is imminent. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the hard-throwing lefty tossed a 25-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon at Wrigley Field without experiencing any problems with his shoulder. “It went real…

  3. Quote of the Day: Brandon Phillips “Honestly, I’ve been too busy winning”

    Sep 19, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips, Chase Utley

    Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips about the NL Gold Glove award.  Which Phillips has won for two straight seasons and for three of the past four.  Mr. Phillips, Mooney asks, what say you about Darwin Barney‘s errorless streak? Does he pose a threat to you? “Honestly, I don’t even…

    Sep 19, 2012, 6:16 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 12, Athletics 2: Lose your starter after two innings? No problem. Because the Tigers have a Hulk. Miguel Cabrera hit two homers and drove in six, starting the A’s hella road trip off in poor fashion. Reds 3, Cubs 1: Homer Bailey took a two-hit shutout into the eighth over what was likely some…

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Orioles 9, Athletics 5: Baltimore salvages one. Which is important for two reasons. Reason 1:  It’s their 82nd win of the year, which means they will finish above .500 for the first time in forever.  More importantly: they really just need to avoid the disaster west coast trip here. If they take care of business…

    Aroldis Chapman is currently getting a bit of a break due to a fatigued left shoulder, but he’s confident he’ll be blowing away opposing batters again real soon. According to Christina De Nicola of MLB.com, Chapman said he felt “a lot better” after making 40 throws earlier today while playing long toss from a distance…

  8. Brandon Phillips is a punk because he didn’t charge the mound to fight Jared Hughes? What?

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:05 AM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    The he-said, he-said of the Brandon Phillips-Jared Hughes thing died out a day after it all went down. Probably for the best, given that (a) neither Phillips nor Hughes was willing to say they were wrong; and (b) no one’s interests would be served by having it strung out any longer. But in today’s Post-Gazette…

  9. Jared Hughes issues statement to address Brandon Phillips’ racism allegations

    Sep 12, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Jared Hughes and Brandon Phillips have already squashed whatever beef they had, but Phillips alleging that Hughes made racist comments during Monday night’s game continues to be a story. Hughes addressed the allegations by issuing the following statement today: In response to Brandon Phillips’ TV interview yesterday prior to the game, I feel compelled to…

  10. NBC SportsTalk: Brandon Phillips confirms that, yes, Jared Hughes said something racist, but it’s all over now

    Sep 12, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    brandon phillips getty

    The ugly comment threads that developed following the Brandon Phillips-Jared Hughes posts yesterday were made ugly when a number of people decided — based on nothing other than their own preconceptions and prejudices, it seemed — that no, there’s no way Jared Hughes could have said something racist to Brandon Phillips. That it must be…

  11. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:06 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Just gonna warn you: this was written as cold medicine was taking effect, with wine — ill advised, I know — and while listening to the new xx album. Lots of heavy stuff here, not best for reason or, for that matter, the reading of box scores.  But we’ll soldier through because this is the…

  12. Clint Hurdle is making Dusty Baker’s life easier

    Sep 11, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT

    Pedro Alvarez

    The Pirates’ No. 4 hitter tonight, Garrett Jones, has hit .213/.254/.344 against lefties this season. The Pirates’ No. 5 hitter tonight, Pedro Alvarez, has hit .210/277/.387 against lefties this season. So, it was pretty much a no-brainer that Sean Marshall was coming in to face both with a man on first and one out and…

  13. Brandon Phillips, Jared Hughes made nice

    Sep 11, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    In the wake of the Brandon Phillips-Jared Hughes dustup with alleged racial overtones last night, peace has apparently been achieved: Hughes, Phillips talked it out on phone. #pirates #reds Both sides put issue to rest. McCutchen was go between — Rob Biertempfel (@BiertempfelTrib) September 11, 2012   Thanks to Andrew McCutchen for playing the United…

  14. Reds worried about Aroldis Chapman’s diminished velocity, “fatigued” shoulder

    Sep 11, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    Aroldis Chapman was a mess last night, walking three of the five batters he faced after coming into a tie game in extra innings and being removed mid-inning for the first time all season. Within that ugly performance he threw 22 pitches and none of them topped 97 miles per hour while many of Chapman’s…

  16. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  17. Reds reliever Nick Masset undergoes shoulder surgery

    Sep 10, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    masset getty

    Nick Masset‘s season began with a spring training shoulder injury and has been filled with numerous setbacks since, and today the Reds announced that the reliever underwent surgery over the weekend. That means Masset will have gone from throwing 76, 77, and 70 innings (with a combined 3.15 ERA) out of the Reds’ bullpen during…

  18. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    Rays 6, Rangers 0: That, my friends, is B.J. Upton.  Three homers for big brother and a two-hit shutout for James Shields. This will make Rays fans feel really good until Texas bounces them easily in the division series again. Marlins 8, Nationals 0: The Nats have not won a game since they shut down Stephen…

  19. Johnny Cueto makes it just four innings against Astros

    Sep 9, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    cueto getty

    R.A. Dickey is the NL’s new ERA leader. Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto, who had been wearing the crown, was hammered for four earned runs on nine hits Sunday afternoon against the Astros before exiting after just four frames. He struck out six and issued only one walk, but the typically light-hitting Houston lineup took advantage…

  20. Zack Cozart has a slightly strained oblique

    Sep 8, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    zack cozart getty

    From Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds shortstop Zack Cozart was diagnosed on Saturday afternoon with a “slight oblique strain” and has already been ruled out of the team’s entire weekend series with the Astros. Cozart’s injury should be healed by early next week, but the Reds currently boast an 8 1/2-game…

  21. The Reds won’t be getting Bill Bray back this year

    Sep 7, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

    Bill Bray

    Bill Bray, Cincinnati’s talented but often injured left-handed reliever, is being shut down and sent home for the rest of the season. “He’s still on the DL,” pitching coach Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Fay. “He’s not going to be activated. He wasn’t going to pitch for us in September. He battled with…

  22. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  23. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 80-51

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Here’s part two of the top 111 free agents list. Part one can be found here, and I’ll be posting the top 50 tomorrow. 80. Carlos Lee (1B Marlins – Age 36): Lee still hits a fair number of liners at age 36, but his home run total has dropped six straight seasons and he…

  24. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 6, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  25. R.A. Dickey defeats Cardinals, is first to 18 wins

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    If R.A. Dickey had fallen back a bit in the NL Cy Young race with his little rough patch after the All-Star break, he’s pretty clearly the favorite again now. Dickey allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings against the Cardinals on Wednesday to become the first major leaguer to reach 18 wins this season.…
