  1. Phil Coke shows that anybody can pitch the ninth

    Oct 14, 2012, 8:08 PM EST

    Phil Coke

    Did you ever notice that when baseball broadcasters start talking about the ninth-inning mentality and about all the setup men who couldn’t handle the closer’s role, they never go on to name names? Moments after John Smoltz went on his little spiel about how not everyone can pitch the ninth Sunday, Phil Coke finished shutting down the…

  3. It’s just not the postseason without Derek Jeter

    Oct 14, 2012, 1:49 AM EST

    Derek Jeter

    The Yankees were already going it without Mariano Rivera this month, a strange sight to everyone who has followed baseball since the mid-1990s. But then Rivera was only out there for one or two innings per night. Derek Jeter was the immovable object. The Yankees have played in 158 postseason games since 1996, and Jeter…

    The Tigers have suddenly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this ALCS Game 1 Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Austin Jackson opened the top of the sixth inning with a triple into the nook of seats along the first base line then scored when Prince Fielder singled following an intentional walk of Miguel Cabrera.

    Alex Rodriguez AP

    After he was benched in favor of Eric Chavez for the decisive Game 5 of the ALDS against the Orioles yesterday, Alex Rodriguez is back in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the ALCS tonight against Doug Fister and the Tigers. Rodriguez will play third base and bat sixth in his return. It certainly…

  7. CC Sabathia goes nine as Yankees beat Orioles, move on to ALCS

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:03 PM EST

    CC Sabathia

    Just as Justin Verlander pitched the Tigers past the A’s, CC Sabathia proved to be the dominant presence as the Yankees beat the Orioles 3-1 in Friday’s decisive Game 5 and advanced to the ALCS. Sabathia, coming off a win in Game 1 in which he nearly went the distance, did go nine this time…

  9. Looking ahead to two more Game 5s

    Washington Nationals' Jayson Werth rounds the bases after hitting a game-winning walk-off solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals during Game 4 of their MLB NLDS baseball series in Washington

    Four best of five playoff series, four Game 5s. Life is good. We do it again two more times tonight, with the following action on tap: Orioles at Yankees, 5:07 PM ET, TBS:  It has been an offense-free zone for both teams, but it’s not surprising given the big names and big contracts that the Yankees…

  10. And That Happened: Thursday’s playoff highlights

    Division Series - San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Five

    What a ripoff. Instead of the 12 hours of baseball craziness we got on Wednesday, Thursday’s games only gave us eleven and a half hours. I want my money back. Giants 6, Reds 4: Buster Posey with the big bomb. Dusty Baker with a bomb of his own. San Francisco moves on to face the…

  11. Eric Chavez over Alex Rodriguez the right move for Game 5

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:25 AM EST

    Yankees' Rodriguez strikes out against the Orioles during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    Darren O’Day isn’t a conventional pitcher. He’s given plenty of quality right-handed hitters a tough time during his big-league career. Still, it was kind of telling that Alex Rodriguez couldn’t  catch up to his 85-mph fastball in Thursday’s loss to the Orioles. A-Rod did get a single and a walk in five plate appearances Thursday.…

  12. Alex Rodriguez takes seat again, yet Curtis Granderson is even worse

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:54 AM EST

    Yankees' Granderson attempts a bunt against the Orioles during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    Alex Rodriguez was removed for a pinch-hitter for the second straight game Thursday and rightfully so. Yet A-Rod hasn’t been the Yankees’ worst performer through four postseason games. That title goes to Curtis Granderson. Granderson went 0-for-5 with three more strikeouts in Thursday’s loss to the Orioles. He’s 1-for-16 with nine strikeouts in the series,…

  13. Orioles top Yankees in 13 innings, ALDS moves to a decisive Game 5

    We will have four Game Fives in division series play this year for the first time ever. The Orioles defeated the Yankees 2-1 in 13 innings tonight at Yankee Stadium to keep their season alive and force a decisive fifth game tomorrow afternoon. The Orioles grabbed an early 1-0 lead when Nate McLouth hit a…

  14. The Orioles and Yankees are headed to extras

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    There will be extra-inning baseball at Yankee Stadium for a second straight night. The Orioles and Yankees remain tied at 1-1 as we move into the top of the 10th inning. The Yankees went down in order against Darren O’Day in the bottom of the ninth. Russell Martin grounded out and Curtis Granderson flew out…

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez is in the Yankees’ starting lineup tonight after being pinch-hit for last night, but manager Joe Girardi has decided to drop him from third to fifth. Raul Ibanez, who came off the bench to pinch-hit for Rodriguez and became the hero with two homers, is back on the bench because the Orioles are…

    Another day, another rain delay. The start of Game 2 of the ALDS between the Yankees and Orioles is being delayed due to rain in the Baltimore area. It shouldn’t be as long as what we had to sit through last night, though. According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, first pitch is expected to be…

  21. Dunn, Granderson have worst ever 40-homer seasons

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:47 PM EST

    Adam Dunn

    By OPS anyway. Adam Dunn and Curtis Granderson both entered Wednesday’s season finales with .800 OPSs. Dunn didn’t play and thus avoided overtaking Mark Reynolds for the single-season strikeout record (he had 222, Reynolds finished with 223 in 2009). Granderson did play and hit two more homers to finish with 43 homers and an .811…

    Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera entered tonight’s season finale against the Royals ranking first in the American League in batting average, homers and runs batted in. And that’s right where he’ll finish. Cabrera went 0-for-2 with a strikeout on Wednesday night in Kansas City, but he walked off the field to a standing ovation from the Kauffman…

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…
