    Braves 5, Cardinals 2: That was somewhat unexpected. A less-than-dominant Braves team sweeps the best team in the National League. The key was Kris Medlen allowing two runs on eight hits. The key all series was good starting pitching from the Braves. So of course the big talking point everyone has is how Jason Heyward…

    Padres closer Huston Street has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, reports MLB.com’s Corey Brock. Street, with a 4.43 ERA on the season, is dealing with a left calf injury and has pitched just once, on Saturday, since May 21.

    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…

    Corey Knebel

    We don’t usually cover college baseball here, but this story is pretty interesting. All-American closer Corey Knebel has been suspended by the University of Texas because, according to the Austin American-Statesman, “he willingly substituted his urine sample to protect a teammate from failing a drug test.” Kirk Bohls and Mark Rosner of the Austin American-Statesman…

  8. 75% of baseball teams’ political donations went to conservative causes in 2012

    Mar 29, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Republican and Democrat symbols

    Via Nathaniel Rakich, here’s a report from the Sunlight Foundation chronicling political donations by Major League Baseball teams, as well as the league itself, in 2012. Shockingly, rich business owners who aren’t big fans of regulation and change spend the bulk of their dough on conservative causes: indeed, 75% of all political donations from teams,…

  10. Scott Boras still trying to entice Tigers on Rafael Soriano

    Dec 5, 2012, 9:06 PM EDT

    Scott Boras

    With no teams showing much interest in paying $10 million per year and giving up a draft pick for a closer, agent Scott Boras is hoping the Tigers have a change of heart and bid for Rafael Soriano. MLB.com’s Jason Beck has the quotes: “I think the Tigers’ position is one where they’re trying to…

    Carlos Quentin was handed a three-year, $30 million deal last week. And now the San Diego front office has locked up another potential trade chip. From Corey Brock of MLB.com comes word that the Padres reached agreement Sunday on a two-year, $14 million contract extension with closer Huston Street. The deal also carries a $7 million…

    One of the top available bats is now off the market. According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin — who had been drawing trade interest from a number of teams — agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract extension on Sunday morning with San Diego. The deal could carry a total value…

  16. The Padres want to sign Carlos Quentin and Huston Street, not trade them

    Jul 19, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    padres logo main

    Carlos Quentin and Huston Street are two of the most popular trade chips around, so the assumption has been that the Padres will deal them before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Not so, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. According to Heyman, the Padres now want to sign both Quentin and Street to multi-year deals.…

  17. So who’s available at the trade deadline?

    Jul 16, 2012, 9:18 AM EDT

    Justin Upton

    The non-waiver trade deadline is coming. July 31, as usual. After a slow beginning to crazy season due to so many teams being in contention or erroneously believing so, the rumblings are getting louder. It’s great fun, yes? Over the next couple of weeks, we will obviously be writing individual posts for each of the…

  18. Padres use steal of home in ninth to overtake Dodgers

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:53 AM EDT

    Dodgers Padres

    The Padres came back to beat the Dodgers on a crazy play Saturday, tying the game on a steal of home with two outs in the top of the ninth and scoring the go-ahead run on the same sequence. The Padres had runners on the corners with no outs before Kenley Jansen got a strikeout…

  19. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  20. Reds feel they were intentionally snubbed by National League All-Star manager Tony La Russa

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    baker cueto getty

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…

    Huston Street Getty

    The Mets will enter play this evening with a major-league worst 5.00 ERA out of their bullpen, but as long as they hang around in the playoff race, we should probably get used to them being connected to every relief pitcher on the market. According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, the…

    The Padres have activated closer Huston Street for tonight’s game against the Giants, exactly one month after he was placed on the disabled list with a strained right lat muscle.

    Huston Street

    At age 31 career minor leaguer Dale Thayer has done an excellent job as the Padres’ fill-in closer, saving five games with a 0.00 ERA and 10/0 K/BB ratio in 10 innings stepping into the ninth-inning role for Huston Street. However, before going on the disabled list with a shoulder injury Street was also pitching…
