    Miami Marlins v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 4, Marlins 3: A walkoff homer for Josh Harrison — the utility infielder if you didn’t know — gave this one to Pittsburgh, as the Pirates show no inclination to give up first place. Andrew McCutchen had a fantastic diving catch to save at least one run in the seventh when the game was tied and…

    Matt Adams is off the disabled list after missing the past two weeks with a strained oblique muscle, which is a pretty rapid recovery from an injury that often lingers much longer. It’ll be interesting to see how much playing time the Cardinals give Adams, because he was off to an amazing start as a…

  13. Barry Zito is a reborn Christian, “really excited” about owning and shooting guns

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Barry Zito

    Barry Zito got tagged with some sort of hippie/playboy/zen master stereotype when he came up with the A’s. Since then most of that has been obscured by talk of his contract, his pitching struggles and then his nice little comeback the past season or so. But his interview in the May “GQ” reveals a much different Barry…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Arizona Diamondbacks

    I spent the evening seeing a preview showing of the Jackie Robinson movie, “42,” — review coming later today — so I didn’t get to watch really any baseball. Kinda glad I didn’t too. After seeing and thinking about Robinson I would have probably just thrown something at my TV if I had to watch…

    Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

    Jedd Gyorko

    The AL had an historic Rookie of the Year class last year, but this year, the NL appears to have the stronger group of the two leagues. The one issue: a lot of these talents are likely to have to wait until June or July for their opportunities, if they come this year at all.…

    Jun 17, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    Matt Holliday

    Matt Holliday‘s exit from Sunday’s game against the Royals was curious, given that it was hard to tell when he might have been hurt.
