    Reds' manager Dusty Baker watches from the dugout as his team plays the Giants in Game 5 of their MLB NLDS playoff baseball series in Cincinnati

    In the latest instance of a Major League manager refusing to consider anything but by-the-book bullpen use, Reds manager Dusty Baker reiterated to the media that he will not use closer Aroldis Chapman for more than one inning: Dusty Baker just said he will not use Aroldis Chapman in the 8th inning. Said the days…

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

    Miami Marlins  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

    Texas Rangers v Seattle Mariners

    Once upon a time Julio Borbon looked like he might be the Rangers’ long-term answer in center field, but he fell behind Leonys Martin and Craig Gentry on the depth chart and today they designated the former first-round pick for assignment.

    Josh Hamilton is considered day-to-day after leaving last night’s game against the Rockies with left groin tightness. As Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News notes, the good news is that it is not in the same area where he required sports hernia surgery last November. The Rangers expect Hamilton to be ready for Opening…

    The Rangers spent far more than anyone expected to land 23-year-old Cuban defector Leonys Martin last year, signing him for $15.5 million over five years. He was generally impressive in the minors in his U.S. debut, but manager Ron Washington told the Dallas Morning News today that he’s still not close to helping the team:…

    A.J. Burnett

    We often hear about veterans coming to new teams and asking younger players for their old jersey numbers.  Often there is payment involved. Last year Julio Borbon gave Adrian Beltre his customary number 29 in exchange for a watch. The year before, Jim Thome gave Alexi Casilla a Rolex in exchange for his number with the…

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…
