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

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well. Injury added to insult: Jose Iglesias left the game with shin splints. Cardinals 5, Reds 4: A sixteen inning affair in which Matt Adams homered…

    While the Rangers are prepared to welcome Nelson Cruz back for the playoffs after his completes his 50-game suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis, the Tigers aren’t ready to say the same for Jhonny Peralta. According to Chris Iott of MLive.com, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski responded to inquiries on Peralta’s status yesterday by saying…

  3. Will Middlebrooks has been on fire since rejoining Red Sox

    Will Middlebrooks Getty

    When the Red Sox demoted Will Middlebrooks to Triple-A on June 25 he was hitting .193 in 53 games and he wasn’t particularly great for Pawtucket, hitting .268 with 10 homers and a .790 OPS in 45 games. However, after trading Jose Iglesias in the deal for Jake Peavy the Red Sox recalled Middlebrooks from…

  4. Power Rankings of MLB uniforms

    Aug 20, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    Paul Lukas of UniWatch has issued his annual power rankings of Major League Baseball uniforms. Obviously this is the most subjective of exercises. If you want any more evidence of that know that the Yankees slid from fourth to seventh in the past year despite the fact they haven’t changed their look in close to…

  5. Jose Iglesias the latest to risk sterilization while playing baseball

    Aug 16, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    The Tigers lost to the Royals 2-1 this afternoon, but that wasn’t the most painful part of the afternoon for shortstop Jose Iglesias. In the bottom of the third inning against Royals starter Danny Duffy, Iglesias squared around to bunt in a 1-1 count. Duffy’s fastball ran a little too far inside and caught Iglesias…

  6. A time to be young

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    I didn’t realize it at the time, but the late 1970s was an amazing time for young baseball players. I’m arbitrarily choosing 23-and-younger as “young” — but with that age in mind, the late 1970s gave us Hall of Famers Eddie Murray, Andre Dawson, Paul Molitor, Gary Carter, Robin Yount, Ozzie Smith and some pretty…

  7. Video: Jose Iglesias makes an incredible barehanded play

    Aug 12, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Doug Fister, Jose Iglesias

    The Tigers parted with outfielder Avisail Garcia last month to land Jose Iglesias as a fill-in option for Jhonny Peralta at shortstop. And this incredible barehanded play tonight against the White Sox is an example of why. My goodness. That almost defies the laws of physics. Jhonny who?

  8. Red Sox bring back Will Middlebrooks to play third base

    Aug 10, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks

    Those hoping the Red Sox would give top prospect Xander Bogaerts a shot should prepare to be disappointed. The team is instead recalling Will Middlebrooks to play third base, with Brandon Snyder going on the disabled list. Middlebrooks had regained his stroke for Triple-A Pawtucket over the last week, hitting .333/.361/.545 with two homers in…

  9. What do the Tigers and Rangers do about Jhonny Peralta and Nelson Cruz come playoff time?

    Aug 5, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    The two Biogenesis suspensions with the most on-field impact are easily the Rangers’ Nelson Cruz and the Tigers’ Jhonny Peralta. One leads his team in homers the other is his team’s starting shortstop. Both, assuming their suspensions start today, will be eligible to return for the playoffs if their teams make it there (Peralta could…

  10. Max Scherzer puts on clinic against the White Sox, improves to 16-1

    Aug 3, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer silenced White Sox hitters over seven and two-thirds innings tonight, improving to 16-1 with the 3-0 victory. The right-hander allowed three hits and three walks while striking out six, lowering his ERA to 2.85. Scherzer got two quick outs in the seventh, but was lifted for newly-acquired reliever Jose Veras after Alejandro…

  11. Jose Iglesias to make his Tigers debut at 3B, Miguel Cabrera scratched from the lineup

    Aug 2, 2013, 5:43 PM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    Jim Leyland’s lineup for tonight’s game against the White Sox originally had new infielder Jose Iglesias making his Tigers debut at second base.  Now he’s going to third base as Miguel Cabrera has been scratched, presumably due to lingering abdominal issues which have kept him out of the past two games. Third base is more…

  12. Biogenesis suspensions may not come today; MLB considering Monday as the deadline

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

    Clinic at Center of MLB Doping Scandal

    We’ve been assuming that today will be D-Day for Biogenesis suspensions. And it’s possible that’s what happens. But there is increasing chatter that Monday may be the real deadline: Monday appears to be the deadline for Alex Rodriguez and 13 others to accept suspensions for their ties to the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. While A-Rod is…

  13. Jake Peavy to make first start with Red Sox on Saturday

    Jake Peavy Getty

    Jake Peavy will make his first start with the Red Sox on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, reports Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston.com. Peavy was acquired from the White Sox on Tuesday night in a three-team deal that sent infielder Jose Iglesias to the Tigers. The veteran right-hander will take the rotation spot of Brandon Workman, who…

  14. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

  15. HBT’s Trade Deadline Wrapup

    Jul 31, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    The non-waiver trade deadline hit at 4PM EDT today. It was pretty uneventful compared to years past, with lots of chatter but very few deals. Here’s what we had go down today before the non-waiver trade deadline: The Dodgers acquired Drew Butera from the Twins for a player to be named; The Orioles receive Bud…

  16. UPDATE: Michael Young willing to waive no-trade for Boston, New York

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    2:06 p.m. EDT update: Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News says the Yankees have been told that Young would accept a trade to New York. He’d be a safety net for the Yankees depending on what happens with Alex Rodriguez. 12:29 p.m. EDT update: ESPNBoston.com’s Gordon Edes was told it’s “doubtful” that the…

  17. Is Biogenesis casting a shadow over the trade deadline?

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    It seems like all baseball news has been overshadowed by the looming Biogenesis suspensions and the circus that is Alex Rodriguez‘s, Major League Baseball’s and the New York Yankees’ public feud. Indeed, as this week began it appeared as though today’s trade deadline would be a mere afterthought. Or, if not an afterthought, that it…

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

    Jul 31, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game Two

    Pirates 2, Cardinals 1; Pirates 6, Cardinals 0: First. Place. Pirates. And the best record in baseball. A walkoff in the opener and a beatdown in the nightcap. Six straight losses by the reeling Cardinals, who lost Yadier Molina to the DL on top of it all. And maybe — just maybe — the end…

  19. Could it be Xander Bogaerts time in Boston? (UPDATE: Not quite yet)

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:40 AM EDT

    Xander Bogaerts

    Jose Iglesias was fading offensively, but he was still a major part of the 2013 Red Sox when he was shipped out as part of the three-team Jake Peavy deal Tuesday night. In announcing the trade, the Red Sox declined to discuss the particularly of how he’d be replaced as the team’s third baseman against…

  21. Blown call from Jerry Meals, bad baseball doom Red Sox in loss

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Jerry Meals

    Make no mistake: the Red Sox played some pretty terrible baseball in losing 2-1 to the Rays on Monday. Still, a blown call at home plate in the bottom of the eighth cost them the tying run and, for that, Jerry Meals was to blame. Here’s the video: Meals admitted after the game that he…

  22. Jose Iglesias made a gorgeous over-the-shoulder catch

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

    Red Sox infielder Jose Iglesias, a maestro defensively, made this play look really easy:

    Jul 6, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Stephen Drew Getty

    The Red Sox placed shortstop Stephen Drew on the 15-day disabled list yesterday after he missed a week of action due to right hamstring tightness.
