    Per MLB.com, the Dodgers locked up Clayton Kershaw for seven years at $215 million earlier today. Dodgers president Stan Kasten is hopeful that the club will make the deal official by Friday morning. The news caused our eyes to jump to the horizon, wondering how the lefty will fare between now and 2020. But first,…

    Lefty Dallas Braden tossed a perfect game against the Rays on Mother’s Day — May 9, 2010. He finished the year with a 3.50 ERA in 192.2 innings, ranking as a solid #3 option in the Athletics’ rotation behind Gio Gonzalez and Trevor Cahill. Following surgery on the anterior capsule in his left shoulder in…

  3. Nationals acquire Doug Fister from Tigers

    UPDATE: It’s done. The Nationals just announced that prospect left-hander Robbie Ray will also be sent to Detroit. So it’s Fister for Ray, Krol, and Lombardozzi. Interesting. Ray has really improved his stock as a prospect over the past year, but it’s surprising that the Nationals were able to acquire Fister without giving up a…

  4. Adam Wainwright’s second Game 5 needs to go better than his first

    Oct 7, 2013, 7:33 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

    For the second year in a row, the Cardinals will turn to Adam Wainwright in a decisive NLDS Game 5. Last year, they escaped with a win, but it was with no help from their ace. Wainwright was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS…

    Matt Holliday is out of the Cardinals’ starting lineup for a third consecutive game on Tuesday night versus the Nationals.

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Athletics 6: Torii Hunter walks off the Tigers who came back from a 6-1 deficit. A 6-3 deficit in the ninth. All while losing Miguel Cabrera mid-game. Now, starting pitching, please stop requiring Tigers bats to bail you out all the time. Orioles 3, Red Sox 2: Baltimore avoids the sweep and pulls…

    Don’t sleep on the Nationals. Aided by seven scoreless innings from Gio Gonzalez and home runs from Jayson Werth, Bryce Harper, and Ian Desmond, the Nationals wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Marlins tonight with a 9-0 victory at Nationals Park. Gonzalez gave up just three hits (all of them singles) and three walks…

    During the first inning of last night’s Nationals-Giants game starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez and right fielder Jayson Werth had a verbal altercation in the Washington dugout that was caught on camera. It didn’t go beyond yelling because Werth seemed to end things by walking away. Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com went looking for answers in the…

    Chase Hughes of CSNWashington.com has the story: During the first inning of the Nationals and Giants game on Tuesday night, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area’s broadcast caught a tense moment between Gio Gonzalez and Jayson Werth in the Washington dugout. Werth walked past Gonzalez and said something that provoked Gio to turn around and start yelling…

  11. Justin Morneau powers Twins to win with two homers

    Aug 9, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Justin Morneau

    This “just in” — Justin Morneau can still hit dingers. The Twins first baseman hit two of them this afternoon against the White Sox: a grand slam in the seventh off of Ramon Troncoso to give the Twins a 5-3 lead, and a solo shot in the eighth to remove the save opportunity for closer…

  12. Three previously unknown Biogenesis players named, Gio Gonzalez cleared, 12 total accepting discpline

    Jordany Valdespin

    Lots of Biogenesis news has come out in the past few minutes. We have news of three new names in the Biogenesis scandal, a couple being cleared as well as more news of players agreeing not to appeal and to serve their suspensions. The new names: The Mets’ Jordany Valdespin, the Phillies’ Antonio Bastardo and the…

  13. Nelson Cruz likely to accept suspension, leaves Biogenesis-tainted agents

    Aug 5, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    The word Wednesday was that Nelson Cruz might appeal the anticipated 50-game ban handed coming down in the Biogenesis scandal, but Jon Heyman reports that Cruz has decided to serve his time now in anticipation of becoming a free agent this winter. It was also disclosed that Cruz is leaving the ACES agency, which represented…

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

  15. Ryan Braun’s suspension may be the easiest of them all: looking at the next Biogenesis targets

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    nelson cruz ap

    Ryan Braun‘s suspension was first and, as the alleged public enemy number one — or two — of Major League Baseball, may eventually be seen as the most significant.  But at the moment it sort of seems like small potatoes, all things considered. Why? Because the Brewers season was already effectively over and it will…

  16. So, if MLB suspends Braun and A-Rod, what’s next?

    Home plate umpire Additon calls time as Tampa Yankees' Rodriguez grimaces after he was hit by a pitch during a Single A baseball game with the Brevard County Manatees in Melbourne

    T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish reported Tuesday that MLB is prepared to suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and “as many as 20 players” in connection with the Biogenesis scandal “sometime after next week’s All-Star break.” Outside the Lines got this from several sources, some likely from within the commissioner’s office. MLB hasn’t been shy about…

    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…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  19. Stephen Strasburg (lat) aiming to pitch Saturday vs. Twins

    Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was lifted from his start last Friday against the Braves because of a Grade 1 lat strain. But the hope is that he won’t even miss a full turn in the Nats’ starting rotation. According to CSN Washington’s Mark Zuckerman, Strasburg is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday and…

    Let’s run down the list of players connected to Tony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic as MLB is reportedly preparing to issue 50- or 100-game suspensions. Listed below are players whose names are found in the Biogenesis documents. Other major leaguers may well be involved, as some of Bosch’s clients were listed in code. Since Bosch is…

    Performance-enhancing drugs loomed large entering the baseball season, amid reports that dozens of players — many of them high-profile stars — could be suspended because of their reported involvement with a clinic that supplied PEDs. That story just got bigger. From ESPN.com investigative reporters T.J. Quinn, Pedro Gomez and Mike Fish: Major League Baseball will…

  22. Watch Hyun-Jin Ryu and Gio Gonzalez play catch with fans

    May 15, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Los Angeles Dodgers

    The Dodgers suck, but they’ve been aces on fan relations lately. First that Matt Kemp video last week, now Hyun-Jin Ryu warms up with a young fan: Man, the kid has a pretty good arm. Wonder if he could take Beckett’s slot in the rotation … UPDATE: Gio Gonzalez did it too: This trend will…

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Last year, of course, we were lucky enough to get two of the most precocious young players in baseball history — Mike Trout put up a historic season at age 20, Bryce Harper put up a superb one at age 19. It was the greatest young duo to hit baseball since 1928 — when Jimmie…

    Jordan Zimmermann AP

    It was easy to sense a tiny bit of panic in the air after the Nationals dropped four in a row this week to fall under .500 for the first time since 2011. However, the past two games can put any of that silliness to bed. After Gio Gonzalez limited the Reds to a solo…

  25. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and hightlights

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:04 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…
