    Mets 4, Braves 3; Mets 6, Braves 1: New York Mets fans are hoping this is a glimpse of the future. Matt Harvey dominating in one game, Zack Wheeler dominating in the next. And, worth noting, Dillion Gee dominating in the game before those even if they did lose in the end. There’s so much…

    It took five hours and 34 minutes, but the Athletics finished off a three-game sweep of the Yankees with a 3-2 win in 18 innings this evening at O.Co Coliseum. Nate Freiman played hero for the Athletics, as he dropped a one-out single into left field off Mariano Rivera to drive in John Jaso for…

  10. So, someone is going to have to be the AL Rookie of the Year, right?

    Jun 11, 2013, 6:11 PM EST

    Jose Iglesias

    The AL fired off all its rounds with a 2012 rookie class that featured Mike Trout, Yu Darvish, Yoenis Cespedes, Jarrod Parker, Hisashi Iwakuma, Matt Moore, Tommy Milone and many others. This year, the strong rookie class is in the other league, with Shelby Miller, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Teheran leading the way and Yasiel…

  13. Jon Heyman made some friends on the Oakland A’s

    May 30, 2013, 8:52 AM EST

    oakland coliseum getty

    Given his preference for luxury items, it wasn’t terribly surprising when Jon Heyman tweeted this on Tuesday night:   This bought him a series of unhappy tweets from various Oakland A’s players. And some words from Bob Melvin. Since Heyman blocks me I can’t look at his Twitter replies, but I assume the A’s fans…

  14. The Kansas City Royals Power Hour

    May 29, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    St. Louis Cardinals v Kansas City Royals

    The Kansas City Royals did not hit a home run again on Tuesday — heck, they only managed two hits against the Cardinals, a hard double and soft single by Billy Butler — (update: they failed again on Wednesday) and so that means they have two home runs since May 15, both by 439-year-old Miguel…

    May 6, 2013, 10:55 PM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

The homer was estimated at 460 feet. Reynolds entered the night hitting .296/.363/.622, turning out…

  16. Oakland’s Dan Straily strikes out 11, wins and then gets demoted

    Apr 6, 2013, 1:34 AM EST

    Dan Straily

    Dan Straily knew he was only a member of Oakland’s rotation because Bartolo Colon had a handful of games left on his 2012 PED suspension. So, it didn’t come as any surprise when he was optioned to Triple-A after striking out 11 Astros and picking up his third big-league victory Friday. Casey Pratt of CSNBayArea.com…

  18. With scouts watching, Rick Porcello turns in gem

    Mar 4, 2013, 6:24 PM EST

    Rick Porcello

    At least according to the numbers, Rick Porcello turned in one of the best outings of the spring so far Monday, striking out six in four scoreless innings against the Astros. The watchers were likely pretty impressed, too. With Porcello rumored to be available in trade talks, today’s performance came in front of a “ton”…

  19. A’s pick Brett Anderson as Opening Day starter

    Feb 28, 2013, 12:16 PM EST

    Brett Anderson Getty

    In a move that signals just how well his comeback from Tommy John elbow surgery has gone, the A’s named Brett Anderson as their Opening Day starter. Anderson had elbow surgery in July of 2011 and returned in August of last season, throwing 35 innings with a 2.57 ERA and 25/7 K/BB ratio while looking…

    Nov 12, 2012, 6:22 PM EST

    Mike Trout

    There’s plenty of room for debate when it comes to this year’s BBWAA awards, but there was one certainly; despite an historically awesome crop of competitors, Mike Trout would win American League Rookie of the Year honors in a landslide. The official announcement came Monday, with Trout claiming the top spot on all 28 ballots.…

    Nov 3, 2012, 4:37 PM EST

    UPDATE II: Slusser also hears that despite re-signing Colon, the A’s still have interest in bringing back Brandon McCarthy. UPDATE: Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Colon will receive a $3 million base salary and could earn more with incentives. 4:37 PM: Well, here’s a surprise.

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:35 AM EST

    Justin Verlander

    Way too much Justin Verlander.

Verlander fanned 22 in his two starts, setting a new record for strikeouts in a Divisional Series.…

  24. Tigers’ fortunes hinge on Justin Verlander

    Oct 11, 2012, 1:43 AM EST

    Justin Verlander

    Justin Verlander‘s Game 1 start against the A’s was easily the best of his postseason career. In allowing one run  over seven innings, he picked up his fourth win in nine starts and lowered his October ERA from 5.57 to 4.96. Now one wonders if he might need to be even better in Thursday’s decisive…

    There’s something special about these Athletics. That became apparent throughout the 2012 regular season, and it continued on Wednesday night at Oakland’s O.Co Coliseum with the unlikely American League West champions facing elimination from the ALDS in front of a raucous sold-out home crowd. Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer surrendered just three hits and one (unearned) run…
