    I know a lot of you are at-work-only readers and actually try to have lives and/or watch football on the weekend. Whatever, I can’t stop you from doing silly things. If you are one of those people with bad priorities, however, we would like you to know that there was all kinds of fun playoff…

  3. And That Happened: Sunday’s Playoff Highlights

    Oct 8, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers - Game Two

    Tigers 5, Athletics 4: Don Kelly with the walkoff? Sure, why not? The A’s are in a deep hole now, down 2-0 in a best of five. How quickly the magic pixie dust from a late regular season run fades. Nationals 3, Cardinals 2: Gio Gonzalez walked the world, but the Nats rallied and Mike…

    Adam Wainwright held the Nationals to one run over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in Game 1 of the NLDS and recorded the most strikeouts (10) by a Cardinals pitcher in a postseason game since Bob Gibson. Gio Gonzalez, meanwhile, issued a career-high-tying seven walks over just five innings of work. But the Cardinals couldn’t capitalize…

    Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez hasn’t allowed a hit through two innings, but he has issued five walks and thrown some wild pitches, allowing the Cardinals to take an early 2-1 lead in Game 1 of the NLDS. This is Gio’s first career postseason start and the five-game series opened on the road due to this…

    Mike Trout

    Here are my picks for the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards for each league. Obviously, these are all for fun. I’m not a BBWAA member and do not have ballots for any of these awards. Feel free to flame away. AL MVP 1. Mike Trout 2. Miguel Cabrera 3. Robinson Cano 4.…

  9. A’s pick rookie Jarrod Parker to start Game 1 against Tigers

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Jarrod Parker AP

    Fittingly for a team that has relied so heavily on rookie pitchers all season the A’s have picked the youngest starter on the staff, 23-year-old Jarrod Parker, to take the mound in Game 1 of the ALDS against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. Parker, who was acquired from the Diamondbacks as part of the Trevor…

    Oct 2, 2012, 8:34 PM EDT

    gonzalez, cueto getty

    They don’t yet know who they’ll be facing, but the Nationals and Reds have set their NLDS rotations. According to Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington, the Nats will go with Gio Gonzalez in Game 1, Jordan Zimmermann in Game 2, then either Edwin Jackson or Ross Detwiler in Game 3. Gonzalez, a candidate for the…

  11. With division title clinched, Gio Gonzalez won’t make final start for Nationals

    Oct 2, 2012, 1:45 PM EDT

    Gio Gonzalez

    The Nationals have scratched Gio Gonzalez from his final regular season start tonight after clinching the NL East title last night. Washington is still fighting Cincinnati for the No. 1 seed, but manager Davey Johnson has decided that resting Gonzalez for a Game 1 start in the NLDS is more important. Tom Gorzelanny will take…

  12. David Price notches 20th win, Johnny Cueto falls short

    Sep 30, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    David Price

    With both of MLB’s remaining 19-game winners making their final starts today, we now know we’ll finish the year with four 20-game winners. The Rays’ David Price got to 20 by beating the White Sox today, but the Reds’ Johnny Cueto was left with a no-decision after allowing three runs — one earned — in…

  13. Don’t sleep on Clayton Kershaw for the NL Cy Young Award

    Sep 29, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw Getty

    Some assumed that R.A. Dickey wrapped up the National League Cy Young Award when he got his 20th win Thursday against the Pirates, but Clayton Kershaw is making things interesting. Kershaw absolutely dominated the Rockies last night by striking out 10 over eight shutout innings as part of an 8-0 victory. The defending Cy Young…

  14. Gio Gonzalez is game’s first to 20 wins this season

    Sep 22, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Gio Gonzalez

    The National League’s Cy Young favorites both added to their cases Saturday, with the Nationals’ Gio Gonzalez beating the Brewers for win No. 20 of the season and the Mets’ R.A. Dickey going eight strong to defeat Miami for his 19th victory. Gonzalez held the Brewers to two runs — both unearned — over seven…

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

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  16. The Nationals could still make a run without Stephen Strasburg

    Sep 8, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Nationals Getty

    The Nationals enter today’s action with the best record in baseball at 85-53. Yet with the attention given to the unique situation involving the shutdown of Stephen Strasburg, one would think they would be doomed without him. That’s just not the case. And it’s really a discredit to a well-balanced ballclub. Nationals starters are first…

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  18. It’s apparently idiotic to suggest that the Nationals would be better off with Strasburg

    Sep 3, 2012, 9:16 AM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    I realize what’s going to be done is what’s going to be done, that the Nationals have their reasons, and that most Nationals fans are either perfectly fine with this or are at least resigned to it.  But it must be noted that we truly are in something of a crazy world with respect to the…

  19. Nationals make Sept. 12 the Stephen Strasburg shutdown date

    Sep 2, 2012, 6:13 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    Despite their placement atop the NL East standings, the Nationals announced after Sunday’s game that Stephen Strasburg will make two more starts and then get shut down for the rest of the season. Strasburg, who struck out nine over six scoreless innings against the Cardinals on Sunday, will pitch Friday at home versus the Marlins…

  20. R.A. Dickey tosses five-hit shutout vs. Marlins for 17th win

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:50 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey Getty

    UPDATE: Dickey and Cueto have some company. Gio Gonzalez just tossed a five-hit shutout of his own vs. the Cardinals for his 17th win. 9:50 PM: R.A. Dickey tossed a five-hit shutout tonight as part of a 3-0 victory over the Marlins, putting him into a tie with fellow National League Cy Young candidate Johnny…

  21. Stephen Strasburg to make two or three more starts

    Aug 30, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    Nationals manager Davey Johnson broke the news to Stephen Strasburg on the plane ride home Monday: the 24-year-old right-hander will “probably” make just two or three more starts this season. Johnson says he has a “pretty firm plan” for Strasburg, but it’s based on how many innings the right-hander pitches in his next starts. Strasburg…

  22. R.A. Dickey notches 16th win as Mets snap six-game losing streak

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:58 PM EDT

    R.A. Dickey Getty

    R.A. Dickey is still very much alive in the conversation for the National League Cy Young award. The knuckleballer tossed seven innings of one-run ball this afternoon at Citi Field as part of a 3-1 win over the Astros. The strong performance helped the Mets snap a six-game losing streak. Dickey actually got the Mets…

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

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

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    Marlins 13, Mets 0: Well, that one got out of hand. Chris Young was beaten like a red headed stepchild (can we still say that?), allowing two homers and four RBI to Giancarlo Stanton and a mess of runs to everyone else. Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to 26 games. Giants 15, Cardinals 0:…

  25. Three arguments break out in Brewers-Nationals game

    Jul 29, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Cody Ransom

    One play in the sixth inning of Sunday’s Brewers-Nationals game spawned three arguments with the umpiring crew. The Brewers were up 3-2 and had the bases loaded with one out when Milwaukee’s Norichika Aoki put down a squeeze that was handed by Washington’s Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez conceded the run and made the throw to first,…
