    Grant Balfour

    With four teams combining on just 16 hits and five runs, Tuesday’s games were all about the pitching. Facing elimination, the Giants and A’s survived thanks to the strength of their rotations and bullpens. Tied 1-1 for most of the day, the Giants tried emptying their bench as a means to score a run in…

  4. Offense a problem for these Tigers

    Oct 10, 2012, 12:08 AM EDT

    Cliff Pennington, Delmon Young

    The Tigers possess MLB’s first Triple Crown winner in 45 years in Miguel Cabrera and a second premium bat in Prince Fielder, but the offense as a whole is really quite average. And even average seems kind given its performance so far against the A’s in the ALDS. Shut out in Tuesday’s loss, the Tigers…

    brett anderson getty

    A’s left-hander Brett Anderson made only six starts during the regular season and had not pitched since September 19 because of an oblique strain, so there was reason for concern about how he’d fare in Game 3 of the ALDS on Tuesday night against the Tigers. It didn’t take long for those concerns to disappear.…

    Justin Verlander starting Game 1 was a given and today the Tigers announced the rest of their ALDS rotation against the A’s: Doug Fister in Game 2, Anibal Sanchez in Game 3, and Max Scherzer in Game 4. And then if the series goes to a Game 5 it would be Verlander getting the ball…

    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…

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer Getty

    Usually the MLB strikeout leader is a big-name, Cy Young-caliber pitcher. In fact, every single MLB strikeout leader during the past 20 years fits that description: Randy Johnson (nine times) Johan Santana (two times) Justin Verlander (two times) Curt Schilling (two times) Jered Weaver Tim Lincecum Jake Peavy Kerry Wood John Smoltz You get the…
