  1. And That Happened: Thursday’s playoff highlights

    Oct 12, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:25 AM EDT

    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.…

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

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:54 AM EDT

    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,…

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

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.

    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 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.

    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…

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

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    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…

  17. Yankees, Orioles eek out one-run wins to preserve AL East tie

    Sep 12, 2012, 11:12 PM EDT

    Nate McLouth

    The Orioles got a walkoff win over the Rays in the bottom of the ninth Wednesday, and the Yankees held on against the Red Sox to keep pace in the AL East. Baltimore won 3-2 on a Nate McLouth “single” off the right field wall that scored Manny Machado with one out in the ninth,…

    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…

    There was nothing settled in Baltimore this weekend: the Yankees crushed the Orioles 13-3 on Sunday to earn a split of the four-game series and maintain a one-game lead in the AL East. Curtis Granderson and Derek Jeter homered in the rout. The Yankees took a 5-0 lead in a four-run fourth inning that included…

    From Newsday‘s Erik Boland comes word that center fielder Curtis Granderson is back in the Yankees’ starting lineup on Tuesday evening against the Rays. Granderson did not play Sunday or Monday after making an early exit from Saturday’s game because of tendinitis in his right hamstring. An MRI taken over the weekend ruled out any…

    An MRI taken Saturday on Curtis Granderson‘s sore right hamstring ruled out any sort of structural damage, but he does have mild tendinitis and isn’t quite ready to return to the Yankees’ starting lineup. According to Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger, manager Joe Girardi said this morning that his center fielder will be sidelined…

    Many have predicted that the Orioles’ negative run differential would eventually catch up with them. Yet here we are on September 1 and the Orioles are just two games behind the Yankees for first place in the American League East. Fun times. The Orioles continued to put the pressure on last night, topping the Yankees…

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…
