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

    Aug 20, 2014, 6:54 AM EDT

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

  2. Garrett Richards loses his no-hit bid against the Red Sox in the seventh inning

    Garrett Richards is working on something special against the Red Sox in his Saturday night start at home.

  4. “Gibson and Drysdale” alert!

    Jul 30, 2014, 8:55 AM EDT

    Bob Gibson

    A cliche even more prevalent and ridiculous than the old “If The Boss Was Still Alive” cliche.

    The Dodgers sweep their rivals in San Francisco, the Rays complain about Big Papi and I complain about Southwest Airlines messing with my kids’ vacation.

  6. Chris Archer is unhappy David Ortiz admired his three-run home run

    Jul 27, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT

    Chris Archer

    The Rays and Red Sox have been nipping at each other throughout the season, so it was no surprise that Chris Archer took exception when David Ortiz gawked at his three-run home run.

  7. David Ortiz returns to Red Sox lineup after back injury

    Jul 25, 2014, 4:20 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    Presumably enough time has passed for some of the animosity to fade, but Ortiz’s at-bats will definitely be worth watching tonight.

  8. Changes to official scorers rulings have tripled in recent years

    Jul 22, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    World Series - Boston Red Sox v St Louis Cardinals - Game Four

    Murray Chass — yes, Murray Chass — has an excellent article about this today.

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

    Jul 22, 2014, 6:33 AM EDT

    Adam Jones

    Adam Jones smacked two homers. So did David Ortiz. Oh, and Lisa needs braces (dental plan), Lisa needs braces (dental plan).

  10. Red Sox GM Ben Cherington: “I didn’t do a good enough job building a complete offense”

    Jul 17, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

    Ben Cherington

    It’s been less than nine months since the Red Sox hoisted the World Series trophy and less than eight months since general manager Ben Cherington won the Executive of the Year award, but with the team sitting at 43-52 he’s already started to apologize for this year’s product.

  11. Where have all the superstar left-handed hitters gone?

    Jul 15, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Last night’s Home Run Derby included just one left-handed hitter (Justin Morneau) among the eight contestants and tonight’s All-Star game will feature only two left-handed hitters (Chase Utley, Robinson Cano) among the 18 starters.

  12. Derek Jeter is the most popular MLB jersey this year

    Yes, it’s Jeter day at HBT, apparently.

  13. David Ortiz is not pleased that his name got pulled into the John Lackey-Nelson Cruz thing

    Jul 9, 2014, 9:40 AM EDT

    David Ortiz Getty

    And he’s right to not be pleased. Even if he (and everyone else in this littler drama) is being pretty lame.

  14. Buck Showalter on John Lackey: “he might want to be careful”

    Jul 7, 2014, 8:55 AM EDT

    john lackey getty

    The Orioles manager talks about glass houses in the wake of Lackey’s words about players with PED pasts.

  15. The remarkable career of Raul Ibanez

    Jul 1, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    Why have so many teams and so many teammates loved Raul Ibanez?

    Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 10.22.19 PM

    Clayton Kershaw continues to dominate. And the Dodgers find themselves in a virtual tie for first place in the NL West.

  17. David Ortiz credited with hit on contested call from last week; apologizes for his actions

    Jun 23, 2014, 11:31 PM EDT

    While David Ortiz went about his protest the wrong way last week, he was credited with a hit today.

    Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 8.31.53 PM

    Mike Napoli stole home. Though, really, we should call what he did something else. Also: are we at “Peak Brandon” in Major League Baseball?

  19. David Ortiz isn’t clutch, he’s just good

    Jun 22, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    David Ortiz, Derek Norris

    John Farrell says his slugger has a “knack for the moment”. He doesn’t, really — he’s just good.

  20. Joe Torre smacks David Ortiz over his criticism of official scorers

    Jun 20, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    Short version: “Quit your whining, Ortiz.”

  21. David Ortiz whined about an official scorer’s ruling yesterday

    Jun 19, 2014, 11:36 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2014-06-19 at 11.34.58 AM

    You’d think a Hall of Fame caliber player with multiple World Series rings would let a lone judgment call by an official scorer go. If so, you’d think wrong.

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

    Jun 19, 2014, 6:17 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw no-hitter

    Clayton Kershaw was nearly perfect. And, at least by one measure, was better than a lot of guys who have thrown perfect games.

  23. The Red Sox walk off in extras against the Twins

    Jun 18, 2014, 4:38 PM EDT

    Ortiz and Napoli
