    Phillies celebrate

    Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

    rockies logo

    The Rockies may have the most interesting and unintentionally hilarious roster going into Opening Day. They’ll carry 14 pitchers, including two that are injured (Jhoulys Chacin and Boone Logan, who don’t count against the 25-man limit), as well as two catchers, only five infielders, and six (six!) outfielders. The rotation will include Jorge De La…

  9. The Mets are talking to Fernando Rodney

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:54 PM EST

    Fernando Rodney

    The Mets were reported to have pursued Grant Balfour before he signed with the Rays and now they are reported to be talking to Fernando Rodney. Adam Rubin of ESPNNY has the report. This further suggests discomfort with handing the closer’s role to Bobby Parnell. Which makes one wonder why they let LaTroy Hawkins walk…

    Brett Anderson Getty

    4:32 p.m. EST update: FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Rockies are acquiring Anderson from the A’s in return for left-hander Drew Pomeranz and right-hander Chris Jensen. Anderson’s addition will likely leave Juan Nicasio and Jordan Lyles battling for one spot in Colorado’s rotation. The A’s still have six starters without him, a total…

    Nov 18, 2013, 8:49 PM EST

    LaTroy Hawkins

    LaTroy Hawkins had to settle for a minor league deal with the Mets last offseason, but he has found a new home as a closer just one year later. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Rockies have signed Hawkins to a one-year, $2.5 million contract, pending a physical. The Mets, Braves, and Indians…

  16. LaTroy Hawkins plans to pitch next season at age 41

    Sep 23, 2013, 9:05 AM EST

    LaTroy Hawkins

    On the same day he saved the 100th game of his career Mets reliever LaTroy Hawkins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that he definitely plans to continue pitching next season at age 41. And performance-wise there’s certainly no reason for him to call it quits, as Hawkins has thrown 68 innings with a…

  17. Jason Giambi joins the 2,000 hit club

    Sep 8, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Cleveland Indians

    Indians DH Jason Giambi had been sitting on 1,999 career hits since August 31 and finally joined the elusive 2,000 hit club in the ninth inning this afternoon against Mets reliever LaTroy Hawkins. With Giambi leading off the ninth inning, Hawkins tossed a 94 MPH fastball belt-high but inside. Giambi fought it off and blooped…

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:55 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers v New York Mets

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera homered again as he continues to inch closer to the AL home run lead, and subsequently another Triple Crown. The homer, a two-run shot off of Mets starter Dillon Gee in the first inning this afternoon, marked #42 on the season, leaving him four shy of Orioles first baseman Chris…

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

    Aug 16, 2013, 6:15 PM EST

    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…

  20. Zack Wheeler sets career-high with 12 strikeouts as Mets win

    Aug 16, 2013, 1:14 AM EST

    New York Mets v San Diego Padres

    Mets rookie starter Zack Wheeler was on point tonight against the Padres, holding them to one run on seven hits and a walk over six innings. He eclipsed his previous career-best seven strikeouts, set in his Major League debut on June 18 against the Braves, getting number eight with a fourth-inning punch-out of Jedd Gyorko.…

  21. Unfazed by comebacker, LaTroy Hawkins still refuses to wear a cup

    Aug 15, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    LaTroy Hawkins

    Mets reliever LaTroy Hawkins took a comebacker to the manhood area last night against the Dodgers, an experience that Hawkins later said felt like getting “kicked by a mule.” The Mets, mercifully, granted Hawkins a night off after his incident, but the right-hander seems to have not learned a lesson from any of this. Hawkins…

    You think you had a bad day at work? Check out what happened to LaTroy Hawkins, via Chad Moriyama at MLBgifs.com: Yes, it hit him exactly where you think it hit him.  And to make matters worse: Apparently he wasn’t wearing a cup. — Anthony Jackson (@dodgerscribe) August 15, 2013   After the game Hawkins…

  23. Mets closer Bobby Parnell shut down with herniated disc

    Aug 6, 2013, 4:16 PM EST

    Bobby Parnell

    Bobby Parnell has been one of the few bright spots for the Mets this season, saving 22 games with a 2.16 ERA in his first full year as closer, but now he’s headed to the disabled list with a herniated disc in his neck. Parnell hadn’t pitched since July 30 and Adam Rubin of ESPN…

  24. Hapless Marlins sweep Haplesser Mets

    Jun 2, 2013, 4:51 PM EST

    David Wright

    The Mets had Matt Harvey on the mound today and they got three homers for the offense. That should be a sure recipe to snap a little two-game losing streak, right? No, not even close. The Mets blew a 6-4 lead as the bullpen gave up seven runs in three innings Sunday in an 11-6…
