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

    Oct 3, 2012, 6:09 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…

  2. A’s beat Rangers again, AL West still up for grabs

    Oct 3, 2012, 12:55 AM EDT

    Brandon Moss

    One imagines the A’s would have been perfectly happy with the wild card a few weeks ago. Now they’re one game away from winning the AL West. Travis Blackley allowed one run and three hits in six innings and the bullpen came through one more time Tuesday as the A’s topped the Rangers 3-1 to…

  3. Mariners trying to attract bats, fans with Safeco changes

    Safeco new dimensions

    Let’s face it, there’s one very big reason the Mariners are pulling in the fences at Safeco Field next year: Attendance/game 2007: 32,588 2008: 28,762 2009: 27,105 2010: 25,749 2011: 23,411 2012: 21,417 The Mariners peaked at more than 43,000 fans per game while leading the AL in attendance in 2001 and ’02.

    Oct 2, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    For those of you too busy watching football or something silly like that last night, here’s where we stand with two days left in the regular season. Nine of the ten playoff teams are known: the Yankees, Orioles, Tigers, Rangers and Athletics will represent the American League. The Nationals, Braves, Reds and Giants will represent…

    Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter looks on during play against the Toronto Blue Jays in their first game of a double header during an MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    We are down to the final three days of the regular season, and there is so much still to be decided. Here’s an overview for the craziness that will be afoot between now and Wednesday night: The Races: The teams involved in the playoffs are close to being set. The Yankees, Orioles and Rangers have…

    Sep 30, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    The Tigers bested the Twins 2-1 in Minnesota on Sunday, but the White Sox failed to keep pace,  losing 6-2 to the Rays to fall three games back in the AL Central with three to play. B.J. Upton hit his 27th and 28th homers for Tampa Bay, and David Price was in control, yielding two…

  9. Miguel Cabrera is currently in Triple Crown position

    Sep 30, 2012, 9:21 AM EDT

    miguel cabrera getty

    Baseball’s Triple Crown is sort of cool because it’s been celebrated for close to a century and because 12 of the 13 players to accomplish the feat went on to join the Hall of Fame. It’s also outdated, as new stats have emerged that do a better job of evaluating offensive production. But enough of…

  10. Irritated eyes are the new strained obliques

    Sep 26, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Detroit Tigers

    Baseball injuries seem to come in bunches and the latest “trend” has shifted from oblique strains to irritated eyes. Coco Crisp has missed most of the past two weeks with pink eye. Josh Hamilton missed a week with dried out corneas from too much caffeine. And now Twins starter Samuel Deduno left this afternoon’s game…

  11. Joe Mauer closes batting title gap on Miguel Cabrera with MLB-leading 22nd three-hit game

    Sep 26, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Joe Mauer AP

    For a while it looked like Miguel Cabrera‘s biggest hurdle in claiming the triple crown would be topping Josh Hamilton in homers, but Joe Mauer has been on fire this month to close the gap in the batting average race. Mauer had his MLB-leading 22nd three-hit game of the season last night and is now…

  12. Josh Hamilton homers in return from latest “weird” injury

    Sep 25, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    josh hamilton ap

    Josh Hamilton returned to the Rangers’ lineup last night after missing five games with what was initially called a sinus infection and later diagnosed as ocular keratitis. Either way the former MVP had vision problems, which are now being blamed on too much caffeine and sports drinks drying out his corneas. Or as Hamilton joked…

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

    Sep 25, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Minnesota Twins

    Yankees 6, Twins 3: Six shutout innings for Andy Pettitte. After all these years. After a retirement. After an injury that cost him the bulk of the season. Andy Pettitte is still critical to the Yankees after all of these years. Orioles 4, Blue Jays 1; Blue Jays 9, Orioles 5: The split costs Baltimore…

  14. Josh Hamilton back in Rangers lineup, blames caffeine and sports drinks for vision problems

    Sep 24, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton AP

    After missing the past five-and-a-half games with what was initially called a sinus infection and subsequent vision problems Josh Hamilton is back in the Rangers’ lineup tonight against the A’s. However, the diagnosis has changed somewhat. According to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas the Rangers “say Hamilton has ocular keratitis, which is blurred vision from…

  15. Josh Hamilton to miss entire weekend series with sinus infection, vision problems

    Sep 21, 2012, 9:21 PM EDT

    hamilton tall getty

    Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup tonight for the third straight game due to vision problems stemming from a sinus infection and the Rangers announced that he’ll miss the entire weekend series against the Mariners. Hamilton left Tuesday’s game in the fourth inning, at which point a prominent Dallas columnist wrote a ridiculous article…

  16. Josh Hamilton leaves the team due to vision, sinus problems

    Sep 21, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    josh hamilton getty

    Josh Hamilton has missed the last two games with sinus trouble so severe that it has affected his vision.  They’ve gotten so bad now that he had to leave the Rangers’ road trip last night and is flying back to Texas to be examined by team doctors. If he ends up missing the entire Rangers-Mariners…

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

    Sep 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

  18. Apparently Josh Hamilton is soft now

    Sep 19, 2012, 12:37 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton is a fantastic baseball player who overcame serious drug addiction and whose body takes a greater physical beating than most non-catchers out there both by chance and by virtue of the way he plays the game.  But by all means, let’s start calling him a big sissy. Jean Jacques Taylor of ESPN Dallas…

  19. Miguel Cabrera homers twice to reach 40 for the first time

    Sep 18, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder

    Miguel Cabrera hit a pair of homers, including the Tigers’ first grand slam of the year, in Tuesday’s win over the A’s to get to 40 for the first time in his career. Cabrera also collected his 38th double. He was removed after his slam off Jesse Chavez made it a 12-2 game in the…

  20. Men predict free agent destinations, God says “hah!”

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    josh hamilton getty

    Today Buster Olney speculates about where Josh Hamilton may wind up.  He runs through any number of teams, notes that there are either fit or payroll problems, and ultimately lands on the Tigers, noting that (a) they have a spot in left field for Hamilton: and (b) they have recently been something of a free…

  21. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

  22. It’s officially “so and so should be considered” season

    Sep 11, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    I had a go at this concept last year. The concept that, when it comes to postseason awards, it’s somehow a legitimate argument to say “so and so should be considered” when the person advocating such a position doesn’t actually think they should win it. That he should be “in the conversation.” Person 1: I…

  23. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  24. Yunel Escobar has career game in leading Jays past Yanks

    Aug 29, 2012, 5:18 PM EDT

    Yunel Escobar

    Yunel Escobar had a homer, three doubles and five RBI Wednesday in the Blue Jays’ 8-5 defeat of the Yankees. The final double, which scored two runs in the ninth, came on a ball that Andruw Jones should have caught. He had it in his glove as he attempted the sliding catch, but he lost…

  25. Scott Diamond drops appeal, starts serving suspension

    Aug 29, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Scott Diamond Getty

    As expected, Twins left-hander Scott Diamond has dropped the appeal of his six-game suspension for throwing at Josh Hamilton and will begin serving his punishment tonight. Diamond was just waiting until making his scheduled start last night, at which point he could serve the six-game suspension and basically just push his next start back a…
