    Sep 6, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 3, White Sox 1: The Orioles win and, frankly, I’m going to credit playing at home. Yep, nothing like a home game. Makes all the difference. And if you think for a minute I’m irrationally beating this into the ground, go take a gander at the NFL Industrial Complex’s collective and concerted moaning and…

    Aug 10, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Things which make me wish I didn’t watch “Wayne’s World” and fall asleep on the couch at 11pm last night: the Dodgers-Rays game. The Dodgers found themselves down 6-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh last night, but then scored one in the seventh, two in the eighth and four in the ninth to…

  5. Blown call from Jerry Meals, bad baseball doom Red Sox in loss

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Jerry Meals

    Make no mistake: the Red Sox played some pretty terrible baseball in losing 2-1 to the Rays on Monday. Still, a blown call at home plate in the bottom of the eighth cost them the tying run and, for that, Jerry Meals was to blame. Here’s the video: Meals admitted after the game that he…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

    Orioles' Jones watches his two-run home run off of Yankees closing pitcher Rivera during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Orioles 2, Yankees 1: Even Superman gets beat up once in a while. Adam Jones handed Mariano Rivera his second blown save of the year and the first blown save in Yankee Stadium in a dog’s age when he smacked a two-run homer in the ninth. Speaking of Superman, I finally got around to seeing…

    Jul 3, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    David Price

    As I mentioned in the recap, yeah, it was the Astros. But that doesn’t change the fact that David Price was as sharp as a tack in his return from the disabled list last night. Price needed a mere 70 pitches to get through seven innings, striking out 10 while allowing just three singles to an overmatched…

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

    Jul 3, 2013, 7:16 AM EDT

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape.
