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

    Jul 4, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 10, Cubs 3: Chipper Jones was named to the All-Star team and then went out and put up a 5-for-5, 4 RBI night. Dude even stole a base. Which is nuts considering he was rejected from the leg transplant list as an unsuitable recipient at least five years ago. Of course I talk about…

  2. Bud Selig takes Tony La Russa’s side on the Cueto/Greinke All-Star controversy

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v New York Mets

    This should not be terribly surprising given that La Russa and Selig have a pretty close relationship as far as these things go, but for what it’s worth, the Commissioner has La Russa’s back on the Zack Greinke and Johnny Cueto snubs: “Well let me just say this, Tony will answer all questions about his…

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

    Jul 3, 2012, 5:47 AM EDT

    New York Yankees first baseman Teixeira misses a ground ball hit by Tampa Bay Rays' Johnson during a MLB American League baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    Rays 4, Yankees 3: Mark Teixeira committed his first error of the season, which allowed in the go ahead run. Hey, he’s allowed one bad day, right? All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That’s how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.…

  4. Mat Latos, Robinson Cano are your players of the week

    Jul 2, 2012, 3:51 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Gosh, it seems like these things happen every week! Anyway: Mat Latos is your NL Player of the Week. Latos was 2-0 in back-to-back complete games, while striking out 20 and allowing but a single earned run in each start. Robinson Cano takes the honors in the AL.  He hit .414 with two doubles, four…

  5. Tony La Russa’s explanation for snubbing Johnny Cueto is suspect

    Jul 2, 2012, 2:12 PM EDT

    2011 World Series Game 4 -Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    Yesterday Tony La Russa left Johnny Cueto off the All-Star team despite Cueto having the kind of numbers which usually ensure All-Star status. Dusty Baker said it was because La Russa was holding a grudge over that ugly 2010 brawl in which Cueto ended Jason LaRue’s career with the kicks to the head. La Russa…

  6. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and higlights

    Jul 2, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Ramon Santiago, Austin Jackson

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

  7. All-Star Jay Bruce gives the Giants a walkoff win

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    Jay Bruce must have forgotten he was playing in San Francisco. Thinking there was a wall where there was no wall, he gave Angel Pagan a game-winning double as the Giants beat the Reds 4-3 on Sunday. There were two outs in a tie game in the bottom of the ninth when Pagan hit a…

  8. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby. Kemp plans to take part in the contest, even though he’s still expected to be on the disabled list as he continues his recovery…

  9. Reds feel they were intentionally snubbed by National League All-Star manager Tony La Russa

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    baker cueto getty

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…

  10. Austin Jackson, Bryce Harper lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 1, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…

  12. Scott Rolen is having a tough time

    Jul 1, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    scott rolen getty

    When Scott Rolen was placed on the disabled list in mid-May after experiencing renewed discomfort in his troublesome left shoulder, many wondered whether that might be it for the veteran third baseman. Whether he might hang up his cleats for good. He didn’t, returning to Cincinnati’s active roster about two weeks ago. But things still…

  13. Yasmani Grandal goes yard twice in historic performance

    Jul 1, 2012, 9:52 AM EDT

    grandal getty

    Anthony Rizzo isn’t the only youngster doing it big. Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, making his first career major league start, slugged a solo home run from the right side of the plate in the fourth inning of Saturday’s 8-4 defeat of the Rockies. He then hit a two-run shot from the left side of the…

  14. Joey Votto departs game with left knee inflammation

    Jun 30, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    votto ap

    From John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds first baseman Joey Votto made an early exit from Saturday’s game against the Giants after feeling soreness in his left knee. He has been officially diagnosed with left knee inflammation. Votto, 28, is batting .350/.471/.632 with 14 homers and 47 RBI through 333 plate…

  15. Padres demote struggling catcher Nick Hundley, call up Yasmani Grandal

    Jun 30, 2012, 9:36 AM EDT

    Nick Hundley Getty

    The Padres exhibited patience with Nick Hundley in hopes that he would find his way out of his season-long funk. However, after last night’s game, they finally decided to make a change. Hundley, who signed a three-year, $9 million extension with the Padres in March, is headed to Triple-A Tucson. Top prospect catcher Yasmani Grandal…

  16. Madison Bumgarner shines as the Giants toss their fourth straight shutout

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:21 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v San Francisco Giants

    Never before in the long history of the Giants franchise had they thrown four straight shutouts, but they have now. They blanked the Reds 5-0. This after throwing three straight shutouts against the Dodgers. Their scoreless innings streak is now at 36 innings, the longest in team history. The last time the Giants allowed a…

  17. Andrew McCutchen leads the Pirates in everything

    Jun 28, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    No, really, everything. Andrew McCutchen leads the Pirates in average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, home runs, runs batted in, runs scored, walks (tied with Neil Walker), doubles, triples and stolen bases. Root Sports Pittsburgh points out that he’s the first player to lead a team in all of those categories this late into the season…

  18. Brandon Phillips gets hit in head, leaves game

    Jun 27, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    Three innings after getting hit in the head during Aramis Ramirez‘s attempted steal of second base, Brandon Phillips left Thursday’s game against the Brewers. It was termed a precautionary move, suggesting that Phillips is expected to be fine. Miguel Cairo took over at second base for the Reds. Phillips had an RBI single the half-inning…

  19. Dusty Baker told Aroldis Chapman: no more somersaults

    Jun 27, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    More like Dusty Buzzkill, amirite? Reds manager Dusty Baker made sure that closer Aroldis Chapman won’t be doing any more somersaults after finishing a game … Baker talked to Chapman about it and said on Wednesday that it will never happen again. Baker understood that Chapman was happy about getting the save after giving up…

  20. Aroldis Chapman does somersaults — literally — after notching the save

    Jun 27, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    Rafael Soriano untucking his shirt? Pfft! Child’s play.  Aroldis Chapman did somersaults off the mound after locking down the save against the Brewers last night: In case this video disappears, watch it here. Dusty Baker was not happy with it afterwards, saying “we don’t play like that.” Teammate Ryan Hanigan said “you can’t be doing that…

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

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  22. Bronson Arroyo loses no-hitter vs. Brewers in eighth inning

    Jun 26, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    arroyo getty

    We have an official no-hitter alert in Cincinnati. Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who entered the night with a pedestrian 4.19 ERA, has tossed seven innings against the Brewers without allowing a hit. He’s fanned three and issued zero walks, and the only thing keeping him from being on perfect game watch was a hit-by-pitch of…

  23. The final NL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the NL All-Star team would look like so. Changes to possible starters: Ryan Braun pulled ahead of Melky Cabrera for the third outfield slot, reversing last week’s reversal. Otherwise, the same old same old, with the changes only affecting downballot stuff: CATCHER Buster Posey, Giants:…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

  25. Mat Latos fans career-high 13 in complete-game victory

    Jun 25, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Mat Latos made the most of two extra days of rest, pitching his second career complete game and striking out a career-high 13 batters Monday as the Reds beat the Brewers 3-1. Latos was pushed back to Monday because Reds manager Dusty Baker wanted to slot him in between Mike Leake and Bronson Arroyo in…
