  7. Down with the pitchers win, up with the Tango

    ARGENTINA-TANGO-WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

    For more than 100 years, people have used won-loss records to determine the best pitchers. That’s not great policy but hey, if we’re going to do it, how about we come up with a won-loss record for the 21st century? Enter: The Tango.

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

    Apr 10, 2014, 7:06 AM EDT

    Victor Martinez

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

  11. Bob Melvin gets bailed out by overpowering Verlander

    Oct 10, 2013, 11:37 PM EDT

    Bob Melvin

    The A’s made the most impetuous decision of the postseason in starting Sonny Gray over Bartolo Colon in Wednesday’s Game 5, choosing a rookie over the guy who finished second in the AL in ERA based on one excellent performance. And how’d the follow that up? By treating Game 5 against a completely dominant Justin…

  12. Tigers extend lead over Athletics in Game 5

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:10 PM EDT

    Sonny Gray Getty

    Bad news for the Athletics: Justin Verlander has another run to work with. Sonny Gray was pulled from the game after he gave up back-to-back singles to Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta to begin the top of the sixth inning. He was relieved by Dan Otero, who got Victor Martinez to ground into a fielder’s…

The Teams Detroit Tigers (93-69) vs. Oakland Athletics (96-66) The Matchups Game 1 Friday in Oakland: Max Scherzer vs. Bartolo…

  14. Sewage problems at O.co Coliseum no problem for the Athletics as they cut their magic number to one

    Sep 21, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Twins Athletics Baseball

    D.J. Short posted earlier about the O.co Coliseum’s latest sewage issue as a result of rain in the Oakland area. The showers caused a two-hour delay while players, coaches, and clubhouse personnel dealt with the primitive conditions indoors. Once play resumed, the A’s wasted no time getting on the board. Alberto Callaspo contributed an RBI…

  15. The Giants are not pleased at the Reds for throwing at Buster Posey

    Apr 25, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Buster Posey, Tim Flannery

    Last night Joey Votto was plunked by Dan Otero in the seventh inning of the Giants-Reds game. If Otero was actually trying to hit Votto it was pretty remarkable, because that would have been the only spot he hit in what was an otherwise hellish night for the Giants’ reliever.  Way more likely: ball actually…

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

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:03 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the New York Yankees in Arlington, Texas

    Rangers 2, Yankees 0: Yu Darvish finally arrives. Eight and a third innings, ten strikeouts and a big goose egg in the runs column against the best offense in baseball. Rays 5, Angels 0: David Price: five-hit shutout. Albert Pujols: 0 for 4. He has the lowest slugging percentage of anyone in last night’s Angels…
