    He’s a double threat: bad and expensive.

    The Indians, A’s and Jays are surging. The Yankees, Rays and Braves are reeling. The Padres won a game despite getting only one hit. As Earl Weaver once said: Baseball: we do this every day, lady.

  5. No no-hitter, but Yu Darvish continued to dominate on Friday

    May 9, 2014, 11:40 PM EDT

    Yu Darvish

    Yu Darvish once again fell one out shy of a no-hitter on Friday night. He doesn’t need one to prove he’s one of the very best pitchers in baseball.

    Andrelton Simmons

    The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.

    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 2014 season. Next up: The Chicago Cubs. The Big Question: Is the wait almost over? It has been 105 long years since the north…

  9. Edwin Jackson sidestepped game plan, threw all fastballs on Friday

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v St. Louis Cardinals

    Edwin Jackson gave up three runs on four hits in his start against the Indians on Friday, but that wasn’t the shocking part of what happened. Unbeknownst to manager Rick Renteria and pitching coach Chris Bosio, Jackson threw all fastballs in his outing — 50 of them. Via MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat: “I think maybe, as…

  10. Jake Arrieta expected to miss start of season after bout with shoulder soreness

    Jake Arrieta was expected to compete for a rotation spot with the Cubs this spring, but it sounds like he’ll have to wait to get his opportunity. According to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said today that Arrieta felt shoulder tightness over the winter and is not expected to be ready…

  11. Sounds like Bob Pollard’s no-hitter was of the Edwin Jackson variety

    Yesterday I posted that news article from the late 70s about Guided By Voices leader Bob Pollard’s no-hitter when he played for Wright State University. It was news to me and baseball fans who only casually follow GBV (or don’t really follow much at all) but it’s something that was apparently well-known by serious GBV…

  12. Diamondbacks close to a deal with Daniel Hudson

    Dec 4, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    daniel hudson getty

    They couldn’t agree to a contract before Monday night’s deadline, so the Diamondbacks non-tendered Daniel Hudson, but Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the two sides are close to hammering out a new deal for him to stick around. Hudson is recovering from a pair of Tommy John elbow surgeries and figures to…

  13. Jose Abreu skepticism sounds like Yasiel Puig skepticism

    jose dariel abreu getty

    Jose Abreu‘s reported $68 million deal with the White Sox isn’t even official yet and there are already lots of prominent media members questioning whether Chicago over-committed to an “untested” player with some question marks attached. I have no idea. I’ve seen Abreu play a couple times on television, I’ve read the same write-ups everyone…

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

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

  15. Tim Lincecum hurls no-hitter against Padres

    Jul 14, 2013, 1:12 AM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    It took a whopping 148 pitches, but Tim Lincecum recorded his first career no-hitter Saturday in the Giants’ 9-0 victory over the Padres. It was the most pitches thrown in a game since Edwin Jackson got to 149 in his no-hitter for the Diamondbacks on June 25, 2010 and the second most since 2005. Lincecum’s…

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

    Jul 12, 2013, 6:50 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Yankees 8, Royals 4: Jeter returns. And got a hit! And an RBI! And scored a run! And left with a strained quadricep! Oy vey. Braves 6, Reds 5: Freddie Freeman wins the Final Vote than goes out and has himself a nice night (3 for 4, 4 RBI). Bad news, though: Jason Heyward left…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Padres 2: An improbable walkoff grand slam from Jeff Mathis caps an improbable winning month from the Miami Marlins. 15-10 in June for the worst team in baseball. Not bad. Oh, and Mathis’ homer was the 3,000th in team history. Pirates 2, Brewers 1: A 14th inning walkoff win for the hottest and…

  18. Carlos Gomez sitting out Tuesday with shoulder sprain

    carlos gomez wall getty

    From Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel comes word that center fielder Carlos Gomez is not in the Brewers’ starting lineup on Tuesday evening against the Cubs because of lingering discomfort in his left shoulder. Gomez was diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain on Sunday afternoon after leaping into the center field wall to make…

  19. Daniel Hudson re-tore elbow ligament, likely needs second Tommy John surgery

    Jun 7, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    daniel hudson getty

    Sad news for Daniel Hudson, as the Diamondbacks announced that the right-hander re-tore his ulnar collateral ligament while rehabbing from Tommy John elbow surgery. For now the team is “exploring all medical options,” but going under the knife for a second surgery seems all but certain. Acquired from the White Sox in mid-2010 as part…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  21. Cole Hamels is 1-8

    May 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Phillies starter Cole Hamels lost his eighth game this afternoon as he was vastly out-dueled by Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg in the Nats’ 6-1 victory. Hamels allowed five runs (three earned) in 6.1 innings, striking out six and walking one as his ERA was actually lowered to 4.43. The first two months for Hamels have…

  22. The Ike Davis nightmare continues

    May 24, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    ike davis getty

    Ike Davis entered tonight’s series opener against the Braves hitting .147 with a .481 OPS. The first baseman has heard rumors of a possible demotion to Triple-A amid an avalanche of criticism. He did nothing to alleviate concerns as he earned the illustrious golden sombrero, striking out four times tonight. As ESPN Stats & Info…

  23. Matt Garza to return from disabled list Tuesday, Carlos Villanueva headed to bullpen

    Matt Garza Getty

    Matt Garza has been cleared to return from the disabled list and will make his season debut Tuesday against the Pirates, according to CSNChicago.com. Garza didn’t throw a pitch after July 21 last season due to a stress reaction in his elbow and was forced to begin this season on the disabled list due to…

  24. The Cubs, Chicago inching toward a resolution

    Apr 8, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Wrigley Field

    Last week there were reports that a deal between the Cubs and the city of Chicago which would allow for the renovation of Wrigley Field to go forward would be announced for today’s home opener. Well, we’ve had a couple of innings of ineffective Edwin Jackson already today, and no announcement.  But Tom Ricketts says…

  25. Tim Lincecum walks seven, beats Dodgers anyway

    Apr 4, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Tim Lincecum‘s awful spring, in which he gave up 18 runs in 15 1/3 innings, only added to the Giants’ doubts about what they’d get from their two-time Cy Young winner this season. They’re probably no closer to figuring it out after Lincecum walked seven yet still defeated the Dodgers on Wednesday. Lincecum surrendered just…
