    The Braves-Phillies game was GONZO with a capital X. In no small part because Dan Uggla was the hero.

    Unfortunately, there will NOT be a 162-0 team this season.

    The Orioles and catcher Matt Wieters have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.7 million contract, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Wieters requested $8.75 million and was offered $6.5 million from the Orioles when arbitration figures were exchanged last month, so the two sides settled for just above the midpoint. Many have speculated…

  4. 40 players exchange figures with their clubs following today’s deadline

    Jan 17, 2014, 7:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    There was a flurry of arbitration-related news today as players and teams scurried to reach agreements prior to the noon central deadline earlier. 39 players did not reach an agreement with their respective teams, and as such, they have exchanged salary figures with their clubs. Of note, Braves closer Craig Kimbrel filed for $9 million,…

    MLB teams have until December 2 to decide whether to tender contracts to their arbitration-eligible players, but there won’t be any intrigue with the Orioles. According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette confirmed this evening that the club plans to tender contracts to all nine players in question.…

  6. Does McCann to New York set up a Salty, Red Sox reunion?

    It’s the catcher market that has moved the most quickly in free agency this winter, with Brian McCann becoming the first elite free agent to come to terms, agreeing to a five-year, $85 million deal with the Yankees on Saturday. The other catcher deals: Carlos Ruiz – Phillies (three years, $26 million) Geovany Soto –…

    Baltimore Orioles v Pittsburgh Pirates

    With their eyes on the horizon, the Orioles are open to the possibility of trading catcher Matt Wieters or shortstop J.J. Hardy to create payroll flexibility, reports Steve Melewski of MASN. The O’s have some interesting situations to address in the near future including extending Chris Davis (a free agent after 2015) and buying out…

    Boston! Colorado! Philly! Anyone! Before you spend a lot of money on a stopgap like Carlos Ruiz, may I interest you in this shiny Matt Wieters? Sources: #Orioles willing to trade Wieters.

  9. Projecting the 2013 Gold Glove winners

    Oct 25, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

  11. The Uehara Phenomenon

    Oct 18, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    So, you probably know that this year Boston’s Koji Uehara proved to be harder to reach base against than any pitcher in the history of baseball. That’s a pretty good thing. Here’s the list of the Top 10 WHIPs in baseball history, pitching at least 50 innings: 1. Koji Uehara, 2013, 0.565 2. Dennis Eckersley,…

  12. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 27, 2013, 6:32 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 6, Angels 5: They were up then down then bang! Jurickson Profar with the walkoff blast. This one would’ve been way easier, however, if Mitch Moreland, Ian Kinsler and Adrian Beltre all hadn’t committed errors in the second inning, allowing three unearned runs. But it was a must-win game and the Rangers won. Indians 6, Twins 5: A win,…

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

    Sep 26, 2013, 7:04 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Minnesota Twins

    Tigers 1, Twins 0: The Tigers finally clinch the AL Central. It was a nail-biter, though, as they scored their lone run in the first inning and then held off the Twins all night long. Best part of their celebration? For the second year in a row Max Scherzer rocked the goggles with two different…

    The Baltimore Orioles are, in most ways, a better baseball team than they were last year. – Last year, they scored 712 runs. This year, they are on pace to score 760. – Last year, they gave up 705 runs. This year, they are on pace to give up a similar 712. – Last year,…

  15. Chris Davis hits home run #48 while teammate Scott Feldman blanks the White Sox

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hadn’t homered since August 28, which created a bit of tension as Miguel Cabrera attempts to win another Triple Crown. Cabrera, though, has played once since the 30th, so the four-homer gap between the two remained until tonight, when Davis blasted #48 off of White Sox starter John Danks in…

  16. Buck Showalter spoke with Bud Selig regarding his comments about the Yankees

    You may recall that Orioles manager Buck Showalter made some pointed comments to USA Today last month about how the Yankees would benefit from Alex Rodriguez being suspended. For those unfamiliar, he said the following: “If Bud lets them get away with that, they’re under the luxury tax. If they can reset, they can spend…

  17. Buck Showalter thought his comments about the Yankees were off-the-record

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    We heard earlier today that Orioles manager Buck Showalter made some interesting comments to USA Today about the repercussions of a possible suspension of Alex Rodriguez, specifically that the Yankees would be able to get under the $189 million luxury tax threshold next season and potentially spend freely in free agency once again. He used…

  18. Buck Showalter thinks A-Rod’s ban will help the Yankees too much

    Aug 1, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    showalter getty

    I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I don’t believe that MLB’s discipline of Alex Rodriguez is specifically designed to get the Yankees out from under their contract obligations to him and save them from their awful mistake of promising him all of that money they agreed to give him before the 2008 season. But man, it…

  19. Grant Balfour blows first save since April 29, 2012

    Jul 23, 2013, 11:55 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Before surrendering a game-tying, two-run home run to Matt Dominguez in the ninth inning of tonight’s loss, Athletics closer Grant Balfour had converted 44 consecutive saves dating back to early 2012, the sixth-longest such streak in baseball history, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Balfour’s last blown save occurred on April 29 against the Orioles,…

    American League All-Stars Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees stands with Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers before the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Home Run Derby in Kansas City

    Upwards of 80 major leaguers will again call themselves All-Stars this year. 34-man rosters mean than a ridiculous 68 players will be eligible for the game. Another eight, 10, 12 or maybe more will be ruled out for the game because of injuries or because they were starting pitchers that pitched the Sunday before the…

  22. Play of the Day: Alexi Casilla makes an incredible tag at second

    Jun 9, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Tampa Bay Rays

    With the Orioles up 5-1 in the bottom of the second this afternoon, the Rays were attempting to mount an early comeback. Evan Longoria had doubled and Desmond Jennings drove him in with a single for the Rays’ first run. Trying to put himself in scoring position, Jennings attempted to steal second base with Ryan…

    There’s no stopping the Orioles’ offense. After Max Scherzer appeared poised to improve to 8-0 last night, the Orioles came roaring back for four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against Jose Valverde to secure a dramatic 7-5 walk-off victory. Nick Markakis led off the inning with a solo homer and was followed…

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

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

    May 8, 2013, 6:50 AM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…
