    Mentioned this in ATH, but it’s worth another look: here’s Juan Lagares robbing Andrew McCutchen of what might have been a homer in the ninth inning last night. Could have fallen short, in which case it would have been a double. Unless Angel Hernandez was umping, in which case it might have been a homer…

  2. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 10, 2013, 6:45 AM EDT

    Luke Scott, Ryan Roberts

    Rays 5, Blue Jays 4: A battle of reigning Cy Young winners decided by a bases loaded walk to an Obama birther. Good times. I watched most of this one. Price and Dickey were OK, but not great. It was, like, the third straight home Rays game I’ve watched where Dick Vitale was noted in…

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

    May 3, 2013, 6:42 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers

    Cardinals 6, Brewers 5: Jake Westbrook with career win 100. And get this: dude allowed only one run in six innings and his ERA increased. Which, yes, will happen when you come in at 0.98. It’s now an unsightly 1.10. He talked after the game how 100 was a goal for him. And while, no,…

  4. Dan Haren delivers gem to shut down Braves

    Dan Haren Getty

    Dan Haren hasn’t had the smoothest start to the season, but he was in vintage form tonight against the division rival Braves, tossing eight innings of one-run ball as part of a 3-1 victory. The victory gave Washington a split of the four-game series and pushed the club back over .500 at 15-14. Haren limited…

  5. The Nationals are under .500 for the first time since 2011

    Apr 24, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    Cardinals' Molina hits a two-run RBI single off Nationals' Strasburg in the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in Washington

    The Cardinals completed a three-game sweep in D.C. by winning 4-2 on Wednesday, dropping the Nationals to 10-11 on the young season. It’s the first time the popular NL pennant pick has been below .500 since finishing the 2011 season with an 80-81 record. Last year, the Nats were over .500 after every game but…

  6. No teams wanted Daric Barton, so he’ll stay with the A’s

    Apr 4, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Once upon a time Daric Barton was a stud prospect who was swapped (with Dan Haren) for an in-his-prime Mark Mulder and not so long ago he led the league in walks as a 24-year-old, drawing 110 free passes on the way to hitting .273 with a .393 on-base percentage in 2010. And today he…

  7. Report: The Cubs have told Carlos Marmol’s agent to “expect” a trade

    Mar 9, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol Getty

    There was a report earlier this week that the Cubs were looking to trade Carlos Marmol before the end of spring training. While that was quickly shot down, it appears that the erratic reliever could be on the move at some point in the future. According to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, top team…

  8. Cubs likely to trade Carlos Marmol before Opening Day

    Mar 5, 2013, 5:27 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    Carlos Marmol was nearly traded to the Angels in November before Dan Haren‘s health squashed the deal, but Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that the Cubs “will most likely” find another trade to move the closer before Opening Day. According to Levine “several teams, including the Detroit Tigers, are taking a hard look at”…

    The Nationals have a loaded starting rotation in Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren and Ross Detwiler. But they’re thinking about adding some depth. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Washington front office is beginning to show “heavy interest” in free agent right-hander Javier Vazquez, who is said to be considering a…

    UPDATE: Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com reports that it’s a done deal at four years and $52 million, with an official announcement coming once Jackson passes a physical exam. ========== Late last night the Cubs were said to be the “frontrunner” for Edwin Jackson and now Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that the two sides are…

  12. Angels never made strong push for Zack Greinke, dropped out of bidding in early November

    Dec 12, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    At the beginning of the offseason the Angels shed Ervin Santana and Dan Haren from the payroll, seemingly to prepare to break the bank re-signing Zack Greinke. There were even articles suggesting re-signing Greinke was the entire focus of their offseason plan. And yet the Angels dropped out of the Greinke bidding weeks before he…

  13. The Phillies might not be done

    Dec 8, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    After acquiring center fielder Ben Revere from the Twins on Thursday and third baseman Michael Young from the Rangers earlier today, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports hears that Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. might have a bigger trick up his sleeve in the days ahead. Phillies fans better hope so, at least if they…

  14. Brandon McCarthy signs with the Diamondbacks: two years, $15.5 million

    Dec 7, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    brandon mccarthy ap

    UPDATE: Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the deal is for two years and $15.5 million. That seems like a bargain in this market. Dan Haren — who also has some health questions — got almost that much for one year. But it does conform with Kevin Towers’ self-imposed rule on pitcher contracts.…

  15. Dan Haren passes physical, officially signs with Nationals

    Dec 7, 2012, 3:20 PM EDT

    Dan Haren Getty

    Dan Haren‘s one-year deal with the Nationals was contingent on his passing a physical exam and the concerns about his back and hip meant that wasn’t just a formality, but he passed the test and the contract is now official. Haren gets $13 million–plus the $3.5 million he received as a buyout from the Angels–and…

  16. Cubs introduce Kyuji Fujikawa, say Carlos Marmol is still the closer

    Dec 7, 2012, 1:13 PM EDT

    fujikawa cubs presser

    After signing Kyuji Fujikawa to a two-year, $9.5 million deal the Cubs introduced the Japanese reliever in a press conference at Wrigley Field today, during which general manager Jed Hoyer said that Carlos Marmol remains the team’s closer. That puts Fujikawa in a setup role after he saved 202 games in six seasons as a…

  17. Priced out on Zack Greinke, Angels GM calls moving on a “practical decision”

    Dec 7, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Early in the offseason the Angels were shopping Ervin Santana (who they eventually traded) and Dan Haren (whose option they eventually declined) because they wanted to clear payroll space to re-sign Zack Greinke, making that the focus of their winter. Unfortunately for the Angels once Greinke actually hit the open market and the offers started…

  18. The Mets are overplaying their hand with R.A. Dickey

    Dec 6, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    R.A. Dickey was the 2012 National League Cy Young Award winner. And yet he’s reportedly willing to accept Ryan Dempster money in a contract extension with the Mets: $13 million per season for two years. The Mets, however, are not willing to give him Ryan Dempster money, according to the New York Daily News. That’s…

    Dec 5, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    Joe Blanton

    The Angels are staying busy Wednesday, picking up Joe Blanton on a two-year, $15 million contract to add to their rotation. The deal includes an option for 2015, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Blanton went 10-13 with a 4.71 ERA for the Phillies and Dodgers last season, though he did post a fine 166/34…

  21. Red Sox looking at Ryan Dempster, Kyle Lohse

    Dec 4, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Ryan Dempster

    The Red Sox are sitting out the Zack Greinke chase and they don’t seem very interested in spending what it would take to land Anibal Sanchez, but they are kicking the tires on Ryan Dempster and Kyle Lohse, according to reports. WEEI’s Alex Speier writes about the interest in Dempster, who is seeking a three-year…

  22. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  23. Shaikin: Dodgers, Rangers look like the “best bets” for Zack Greinke

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:22 PM EDT

    zack greinke getty

    Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times has his ear to the ground regarding Zack Greinke, and he says the Dodgers and Rangers look like the “best bets” for Zack Greinke, with the Angels as a “dark horse.” Hope for the Angels’ sake that they’re not that dark. Having lost Dan Haren and even Ervin…

  24. Nationals sign Dan Haren to one-year, $13 million contract

    Dec 4, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    Dan Haren

    Dan Haren has agreed to a one-year, $13 million contract with the Nationals, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Last month the Angels nearly traded Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol and then, when that fell through, declined his $15.5 million option and paid him a $3.5 million buyout. In other words, Haren will…

  25. The Angels are in the mix for Edwin Jackson

    Dec 4, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

    Edwin Jackson

    The Angels are still holding out hope to retain free agent right-hander Zack Greinke, but they are also considering some backup plans in case things don’t work out. With that in mind, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that they are one of many teams in the mix for free agent right-hander Edwin Jackson. Jackson, 29,…
