    Oct 8, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Shane Victorino

    Next month Shane Victorino will hit the open market as a free agent, but in the meantime he’s serving as a television analyst for the playoffs. Tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday he’ll join Matt Winer, Dennis Eckersley, and David Wells on the TBS studio team. Mark Newman of MLB.com reports that Matt Kemp was initially supposed…

  2. Matt Kemp’s shoulder was worse than expected, may not be full-strength for 2013

    We noted yesterday that Matt Kemp‘s shoulder surgery was a success — all surgery on athletes is a success — but the post-op news from L.A. is not all good. Dylan Hernandez of The Los Angeles Times reports that Kemp’s shoulder was more damaged than first thought, and there is a chance that he will…

  3. With Terry Francona in fold, Indians can’t be so cheap

    Oct 6, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Terry Francona

    The Indians’ move to hire Terry Francona looks like a coup. Getting a two-time World Series-winning manager to come to Cleveland and take over a team that hasn’t finished over .500 in five years makes for quite the turn of events. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if it does any good. Francona…

    The Dodgers announced this afternoon that Matt Kemp underwent surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder today. The surgery was performed by Dr. ElAttrache and involved repair of a tear in his labrum and some minor debridement of the rotator cuff. He will begin physical therapy in 7-10 days and is expected to begin swinging a…

    Mike Trout

    Here are my picks for the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards for each league. Obviously, these are all for fun. I’m not a BBWAA member and do not have ballots for any of these awards. Feel free to flame away. AL MVP 1. Mike Trout 2. Miguel Cabrera 3. Robinson Cano 4.…

  6. Dodgers liking Hanley Ramirez at shortstop, Luis Cruz at third

    Oct 4, 2012, 11:48 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez

    When the Dodgers decided to put Hanley Ramirez back at shortstop upon acquiring from the Marlins, it had the looks of a temporary move, what with Dee Gordon set up as a long-term option at the position. However, as things stand now, the Dodgers are leaning towards leaving Ramirez at shortstop in 2013 and going…

  7. Clayton Kershaw will not require hip surgery

    Matt Kemp is set to undergo shoulder surgery tomorrow, but his teammate Clayton Kershaw will have a normal offseason. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti confirmed this afternoon that Kershaw will not require surgery on his right hip. Surgery was mentioned as a possibility after Kershaw was…

  8. Red Sox, Dodgers complete the Adrian Gonzalez trade

    Oct 4, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Rubby De La Rosa

    The Dodgers officially sent right-hander Rubby De La Rosa and first baseman-outfielder Jerry Sands to the Red Sox on Thursday, completing the August megadeal that saw Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto shipped to Los Angeles. The Red Sox negotiated for De La Rosa and Sands as part of the deal, but…

  9. Miguel Cabrera’s Triple Crown: the best ever?

    Oct 4, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    If you just look at the raw numbers for Miguel Cabrera — a .330 batting average, 44 home runs and 139 RBI — you wouldn’t immediately say “best triple crown ever!”  After all, Mickey Mantle hit 52 home runs to secure his. Lou Gehrig hit .363 in his triple crown year. Jimmie Foxx hit 163 RBI…

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

    Oct 4, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 12, Rangers 5: Oakland shocks the world. No one on the planet had them pegged as a playoff team and, as recently as a week ago, no one figured they had a chance in hell at the division crown. Well, that’s what you get for pegging and figuring. As for the Rangers … just,…

  11. Matt Kemp set to undergo left shoulder surgery on Friday

    Oct 3, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    The Dodgers were eliminated from postseason contention on Tuesday evening when they lost at home to the Giants. Now comes more bad news. According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, outfielder Matt Kemp has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his left shoulder and might require surgery this offseason to repair it.…

  12. Dodgers lose, clinch postseason spot for Cardinals

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Mark Ellis, Pablo Sandoval

    The Dodgers’ season is over, and one can only hope manager Don Mattingly learned a couple of lessons tonight. The Giants won 4-3 in L.A. on Tuesday night to end the Dodgers’ playoff hopes and clinch the second wild card for the Cardinals. St. Louis could have clinched with a win earlier in the evening,…

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

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:16 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Tigers 6, Royals 3: Before the season began I said something to the effect of “if I had to bet the lives of my children on the outcome of any division, it would be the Tigers winning the AL Central.” I repeated that line on the radio a bunch of times.  I was sweating it…

  14. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Oct 1, 2012, 5:33 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 6, Red Sox 3; Yankees 9, Blue Jays 6: 159 games and NOTHING has been decided in the AL East. And, say what you want about the new playoff setup, but the fact that it matters so much who wins the division makes this a fantastic final three days. The Yankees close things out with…

  15. Everth Cabrera first in 14 years with four steals, no hits

    Sep 30, 2012, 7:44 PM EDT

    Everth Cabrera, Juaquin Arias

    Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera did something pretty unusual today in a loss to the Giants; he became the first player since the White Sox’s Lou Frazier in 1998 to steal four bases without recording a hit. Cabrera walked twice and stole second and third each time. He scored on a Hector Sanchez throwing error on…

  16. David Price notches 20th win, Johnny Cueto falls short

    Sep 30, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    David Price

    With both of MLB’s remaining 19-game winners making their final starts today, we now know we’ll finish the year with four 20-game winners. The Rays’ David Price got to 20 by beating the White Sox today, but the Reds’ Johnny Cueto was left with a no-decision after allowing three runs — one earned — in…

  17. Mike Trout becomes youngest member of 30/30 club

    Sep 30, 2012, 4:27 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    At the tender age of 21, Mike Trout became the youngest member of the 30 HR/30 SB club when he hit his 30th home run Sunday off the Rangers’ Yu Darvish. Trout’s 30-30 season is the 60th in major league history. 37 different players had combined on the previous 59. The youngest to do it…

  18. Don’t sleep on Clayton Kershaw for the NL Cy Young Award

    Sep 29, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw Getty

    Some assumed that R.A. Dickey wrapped up the National League Cy Young Award when he got his 20th win Thursday against the Pirates, but Clayton Kershaw is making things interesting. Kershaw absolutely dominated the Rockies last night by striking out 10 over eight shutout innings as part of an 8-0 victory. The defending Cy Young…

  19. Behold: The slowest home run trot you’ll see this year

    Sep 29, 2012, 10:45 AM EDT

    Bobby Abreu Getty

    Bobby Abreu hit a long home run last night against the Rockies and he took his sweet time to get around the bases. 31.56 seconds, in fact. According to Larry Granillo of Baseball Prospectus, it was the longest non-injury home run trot since he began logging them for Tater Trot Tracker in 2010. David Ortiz…

  20. The Dodgers and Phillies complete the Shane Victorino trade

    On July 31, the Phillies sent Shane Victorino to the Dodgers for Ethan Martin, Josh Lindblom and a player to be named later.  The Phillies just announced that Stefan Jarrin is the player to be named later, as they have acquired him from the Dodgers. Jarrin is a second baseman who has spent two seasons with the Dodgers rookie league team…

  21. Chad Billingsley trying to avoid Tommy John surgery

    Sep 28, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chad Billingsley

    Chad Billingsley was ruled out for the season a while ago, but the Dodgers right-hander is trying to determine if he’ll need Tommy John elbow surgery and the 12-18 month recovery timetable that comes with it. Billingsley has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, but was able to play catch regularly for the past week…

  22. Clayton Kershaw may join some amazing but odd company

    Sep 27, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    kershaw getty

    R.A. Dickey notched his 20th win of the season this afternoon, but in allowing three runs in 7.2 innings he fell from first to second among NL ERA leaders. Clayton Kershaw now leads Dickey by the slimmest of margins, 2.68 to 2.69, which got me wondering if a reigning Cy Young winner had ever led…

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

    Sep 27, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles Machado rounds the bases after hitting a home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during an MLB game in Baltimore

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2: Bombs away. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each had two homers and the O’s hit seven in all, keeping pace with the Yankees, who maintain their one and a half game lead. Yankees 8, Twins 2: CC Sabathia looks to be back on his game, and that will be huge for the Yankees in…

  24. The Mets are not going to pursue any big name outfielders

    Sep 26, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) Mets%20Logo.png for post 3903

    The Mets outfield is a pretty ugly mess, but don’t think the free agent market is gonna fix it. Andy Martino reports: Let’s do this once, to save us a winter of speculation: B.J. Upton? No. Michael Bourn? No. Shane Victorino? No. None of these players will be a Met in 2013, according to two…

  25. Clayton Kershaw on track to start Friday versus Rockies

    Sep 26, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    kershaw getty

    Clayton Kershaw came out of Sunday night’s start without making his bum hip any worse, so the reigning Cy Young winner is scheduled to take his next turn in the rotation Friday versus the Rockies. Kershaw prepared for the outing by throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, reporting no problems two days after tossing five innings…
