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

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    New York Mets manager Collins congratulates Wright on hitting a walk off single to beat the Philadelphia Phillies in their MLB National League baseball game at Citi Field in New York

    Mets 6, Phillies 5: The R.A. Dickey vs. Cole Hamels matchup didn’t pan out as some expected, but David Wright took care of things, going 3 for 5 with four RBI including the game winner. Cardinals 6, Rockies 2: Lance Lynn had been skidding but the Rockies cured his ills. The Rockies cure everyone’s ills.…

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

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Dusty Baker, Brandon Phillips

    Reds 12, Indians 5: One in a bunch of lopsided Thursday games. Brandon Phillips simply abuses Indians pitching as a rule and he did so again yesterday, driving in four. And he likes it too. He said after the game: “Deep down, it feels good to beat up on the Tribe.” Michael Brantley extended his hitting…

  3. So, the Padres won the Mat Latos deal?

    Jun 2, 2012, 9:46 PM EDT

    Edinson Volquez

    The way it’s worked out, the Reds’ Mat Latos and the Padres’ Edinson Volquez have made their starts on the same day five straight times now, making it hard not to compare the two. It’s a comparison Volquez is winning hands down. Volquez limited the Diamondbacks to two runs and four hits in six innings…

  4. R.A. Dickey strikes out 10, gives Mets another shutout

    May 27, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey allowed three hits over 7 1/3 innings and moved into a tie for the major league lead with his seventh win Sunday as the Mets blanked the Padres, 2-0. The Mets also got a shutout from Johan Santana on Saturday. It’s the first time they’ve had shutouts in back-to-back games since…

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

    May 8, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Justin Turner, Jordany Valdespin

    Mets 5, Phillies 2: I had been agitating for Jonathan Papelbon to pitch more. Specifically in tie games.  Well, he did here and gave up a game-losing three-run homer to Jordany Valdespin. I suppose we’ll let Cholly run the team from here on out. Marlins 4, Astros 0: Carlos Zambrano with the three-hit shutout pushes his ERA…

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

    May 2, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 8, Rangers 7:  We hear a lot about Bryce Harper, but Brett Lawrie is a more fully formed version of “young, confident dude who can be a difference maker.”  Toronto fought back from an early 5-0 deficit, took the lead, then blew the lead before Lawrie hit a leadoff homer that just barely cleared…

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

    Apr 27, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Brandon Allen

    Rays 4, Angels 3: Pinch hit walkoff bomb from Brandon Allen to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Albert Pujols got a hit but he was thrown out at second trying to stretch it into a double. I think that’s what the fancy commentators on those evening baseball television programs call “pressing.” The Angels…

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

    Apr 10, 2012, 5:56 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 11, Mariners 5: According to Google Translate, a literal translation of “run support” in Japanese is サポートを実行する.  I have no idea if that covers the actual concept of run support, but I bet after last night Yu Darvish knows. He started out his major league debut by giving up four runs in the first inning…

  9. Padres place Tim Stauffer on disabled list with elbow injury

    Apr 6, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    stauffer_tim

    Tim Stauffer was the Padres’ starter on Opening Day last season and went on to throw 186 innings with a 3.73 ERA overall, but he began this season on the disabled list with a strained right elbow. Stauffer tested the injury by playing catch earlier this week, but told Corey Brock of MLB.com that “it…

  10. And That Happened: Thursday’s Scores and Highlights

    Apr 6, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays vs Cleveland Indians

    Blue Jays 7, Indians 4: I was invited to go to this game by the Indians, where I would have watched it for free from the Tribe Social Suite. Because of family entanglements I was not able to go, and when I sent the Indians my regrets, I was very sad about it. But 16…

  11. Springtime Storylines: Have the Reds built themselves a World Series contender?

    Apr 2, 2012, 10:47 PM EDT

    Dusty Baker, Scott Rolen

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season.

  12. Springtime Storylines: What did the Mat Latos deal do for this team?

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: The San Diego Padres. The Big Question: What did the Mat Latos deal for this team? We are seeing fewer…

  13. Mat Latos day-to-day with left calf strain

    Mar 27, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    Mat Latos Getty

    After losing their closer Ryan Madson due to season-ending Tommy John surgery, the Reds were given a scare with their other big offseason addition earlier today. Mat Latos was pulled from his start this afternoon against the Cubs after 4 2/3 innings due to a strained left calf. However, the Reds were more fortunate this…

  14. Running down the rosters: San Diego Padres

    Feb 24, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Cameron Maybin

    One of the surprise teams of 2010, the Padres will try to rebound this year from a 2011 season that saw them lose an additional 19 games and finish 71-91. And just to make it a bit more of a challenge, the team will give it a go without ace Mat Latos, who was sent…

  15. Michael Pineda addition a big win for Yankees

    Jan 13, 2012, 8:43 PM EDT

    Michael Pineda

    Maybe there were no household names involved, but Michael Pineda-for-Jesus Montero is a huge trade, one that, at first inspection, appears to have been won by the Yankees. The Mariners picked up Montero after originally passing on him in a Cliff Lee deal in the summer of 2010. They chose the Rangers’ package headed by…

  16. And, oh yeah, the A’s way undersold on Trevor Cahill

    Dec 17, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT

    Billy Beane

    The Padres just dealt a 24-year-old right-hander with a 27-29 record and a 108 ERA+ to the Reds for their No. 3, No. 4 and No. 10 prospects and a former 17-game winner in Edinson Volquez. The A’s earlier this month dealt a soon-to-be 24-year-old right-hander with a 40-35 record and a 107 ERA+ to…

  17. Padres net a huge haul from Reds in return for Mat Latos

    Dec 17, 2011, 2:18 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    The Padres weren’t looking to trade their 24-year-old ace, but there’s simply no way that they could turn this down. Cincinnati sent 1B/OF Yonder Alonso, C Yasmani Grandal, RHP Edinson Volquez and RHP Brad Boxberger to San Diego for RHP Mat Latos in a trade announced Saturday. In return, the Reds get one of the…

  18. Reds acquire right-hander Mat Latos from Padres in multi-player deal

    Dec 17, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v San Diego Padres

    UPDATE: The Reds just announced that they have acquired Latos from the Padres for first baseman Yonder Alonso, right-handers Edinson Volquez and Brad Boxberger and catching prospect Yasmani Grandal. Wow. This one is looking a lot better for San Diego. 1:12 PM: Well, the Reds have landed the top-flight starter they’ve been looking for all…

  19. Rockies and Reds discuss Huston Street-for-Edinson Volquez deal

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:32 AM EDT

    Huston Street Getty

    The Rockies might have less of a sense of urgency to get a deal done after acquiring Kevin Slowey from the Twins, but Troy Renck of the Denver Post reported this morning that they have had discussions about a possible deal that would send Huston Street to the Reds for Edinson Volquez. Street has a…

  20. Reds “hold little hope of re-signing” closer Francisco Cordero

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    At one point this offseason the Reds were said to be interested in bringing back Francisco Cordero, but now John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that they “hold little hope of re-signing” the 36-year-old closer. Fay speculates that Cordero might even be willing to re-sign on a one-year deal because the closer market is…

  21. Volquez looks stellar in debut, Reds in good shape?

    Jul 18, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    The Reds, as a franchise, have enjoyed quite a breakout season.  Usually an afterthought by mid-June, they currently hold a half-game lead in the National League Central over the heavily favored Cardinals.  To boot, they’re even selling out games at Great American Ballpark in July. Drew Stubbs has developed into a multi-talented threat at the…
